"WOOH Lets GO Pwn Zakum"

Thats the response of higher level Maplers that are about to go to Zakum for the first time. Then someone has to be the party crasher and reminds everyone of the Pre-Quests. Suddenly, a huge uproar within the maplestory chat with people going:

"OMG!!! no, I don't wanna do the JQ"
Or
"I DUN WANNA COLLECT THE TEETH!!"
Or even:
"Erm..Pre-Quests? whats that?"

At which point the people in the chat join their typing skills and all go "*facepalm*".

Now this is why I am writing this guide. To hopefully help loads of Maplers understand what they have to do for the Zakum Pre-Quests so they can then just move on and kill him so the next time they want to kill Zakum again on another character and remember the word "Pre-Quests" it wont seem that much of a hassle. (Let's be honest - it will always be a pain to do them).

So there are 3 Quests you have to do, all in all.But first lets see the requirements for these quests.

Level Requirements: 50+
Other Requirements: Make sure you have pots.
Other Requirements: Before making your way to start the Pre-Quests don't forget to talk to your Third Job Instructor, otherwise you will go all the way to Adobis and realize that you didn't talk to the Job Instructor and have to go all the way back to El Nath and then come back to Adobis again.

Note: There is no point in doing the Pre-Quests unless you can actually kill Zakum(if not, then at least be able to get into a party). My recommendation for level requirement would be 110+ at least, unless you have some really nice high level friends that are willing to take you with them.

Stage 1: In stage 1 you have to find 7 keys. Ofcourse this stage is much easier if you're in a party. In the rooms you can find rocks and chests.
Besides the keys the Rocks and Chests can also do these things:

1. Summon 3 Mimics (only Chests)

2. Teleport you back to the first map (Only Chests)

3. Drop Dead Mine Scrolls, Mesos, Power Elixirs and
normal Elixirs, Fried Chicken and Red Bean Soup

4. Drop Documents

I bet you are wondering what the documents do. Well you will see what they do in the rewards section for stage 1.

These are the rooms that you can find documents in:

1-1
1-2
2-1
3-1
3-2 : 2 Documents in this room
4-2
6-1
7-1
7-2 : 2 Documents in this room
8-1 : 2 Documents in this room
9-1
9-2 : 2 Documents in this room
10-1
10-2: 2 Documents in this room
11-1
12-1
13-1: 2 Documents in this room
14-1
15-1
16-4
16-5
16-6

These are the rooms where you can find the keys in:

4-2: 1 key, found via breaking rock.
9-2: 1 key, found via breaking chest.
11-1: 1 key found by chest.
14-1 1 key found by chest.
16-2: 1 key found by chest.
16-3: 1 key found by chest.
16-5: 1 key found by Rock.

Here is a picture of the Unknown Dead Mine with all the portals marked:

[Guide] Zakum Pre Quests Unknow10

To get to Room 16 you have to go through 10.

Here is a picture of room 16 with all the portals marked:

[Guide] Zakum Pre Quests 28001110


After you have collected all the keys you have to go back to room 16.5. Once you're there you have to find the giant chest and drop the 7 keys at its centre. After a few seconds the fire piece will drop. Now make your way back to the Unknown Mine talk to the NPC and go out.

This is how the fire piece, documents and keys look like:

[Guide] Zakum Pre Quests 04031061

[Guide] Zakum Pre Quests 17923410

[Guide] Zakum Pre Quests 42435911

Reward :
If the quest is completed with only keys and solo, the reward is 12000 EXP. If completed with both Keys, documents and solo, the reward is 20000 EXP. If completed in a party with only keys, the EXP is 15000. If the party has both Keys and Documents, the reward is 20000 EXP. If all the documents are collected then you are awarded with 5 Return to Dead Mine Scrolls.

And that was Stage 1.

Stage 2: Now this is the stage that most people dread. The two stage Jump Quest. Some people don't mind it but others just hate it. Unfortunately if you want to go to zakum you will have to do this stage. You have to try keep calm and just do it. Your main enemy for this stage will be your temper along with lava, gas and falling rocks.

Note: Do not for any reason bash your keyboard or throw your nice new shiny wireless mouse on the wall.

Stage 3: Finally the last stage is to collect or buy 30 golden zombie teeth.

Haste
FJ

What about the papers? you should say what happens when you collect all of them, i.e. bonus exp and you should specify where you can get them.

If you have a big enough party, maybe 2 people can collect the papers and the other get the keys. There is time if you know where to find them.

Edit for Stage 1:

Only need 30 out of 32 papers (might be 34)

Stage 2 Tips from me:

Just watch the timing if it's your first time doing the JQ and go slowly

Take care right by the end of each section to the JQ

In section 1 where there are firebombs, if you have a ranged attack use that to kill them and jump back a platform (to avoid KB from them exploding) then quickly run past. if not, just ignore them and hope for the best
Bring as many pots as possible:
1500+ HP - Barbarians from NLC
4667+ HP - Honsters from NLC

Listen to music to pass the time, sometimes helps

And if you're just pathetic at JQs (*rolls eyes towards...* <3) Well tough, do it yourself. :D (Exceptions may occur)
Hope this helps lol

Baby, maybe you can mention where you can collect zombie teeth i.e. from the zombies in the mines and what maps are best.
