81. Ring of Power:

Recent visitors have returned with strange tales of the Chicago Zoo. Stories are circulating of the animals exhibiting odd, perhaps even anthropomorphic behavior. Apparently the Zookeeper just wanders around in a daze, so it looks like it's up to you to find out what's going on, and to bring order to the menagerie.

Quest Notes (last solved and updated: December 2020)

Important Note: You'll be transported to a maze during this quest, make sure you have plenty of heals on hand as there are MANY guardians that are each 20k-30k in size, but they constantly fear you to another room with another guardian (over, and over, and over again). So if you can't quickly dispatch that class size in mobs, bring a friend who can, or bring heals.

Additional Help: Because the maze resets every boot, we've give you an example of what the completed map looks like, but we've also provided you with a blank map that you can fill in for yourself. Bring approximately 153 coins with you, we find it easiest to mark your room by dropping 1 coin in the first room you come across, 2 coins in the 2nd room you come across, and so on. Don't forget, if you don't have enough room to carry all of the extra gear that the guardians drop in each room, <dispose> of each item (which will also go towards the Street Cleaner medals).

AREA NAME: Chicago Zoo [Flaxen]
Monster class range since inception: 7k - 163k

From Chaos:
Step 1: <enter; 3e; 2s; 2e; n; 3e; n; 2w; 2n; 4e; 3n; move rug> - you'll automatically get a metal key

  There is a mission with the Zookeeper here too (Zoo Cleanup Crew).

Step 2: <unlock drawer; open drawer> - you'll automatically get The Zookeeper's Journal

Step 3: <s; 4w; s; sw; w; kill polar bear>
  41,991 : Polar Bear

Step 4: <get feather>

Step 5: Upcoming aggressive mob - <e; ne; 4n> A fierce Lion Warrior [2] will automatically attack you
  36,334 : A fierce Lion Warrior
  34,605 : A fierce Lion Warrior


Step 6: Another aggressive mob - <enter tree; kill lion>
  45,522 : Lion

Step 7: Get the unicorn's horn - <get horn>

Step 8: <exit; 2s; nw; w; kill panther>

Step 9: <get tail>

Step 10: <e; se; s; enter house> - kill the zooguards here
  9,509 : Zooguard
  9,664 : Zooguard


Step 11: Before you take this next step, be ready to be transported to a maze where there are guardians in many of the rooms, and they will fear you (which makes you run away to a different room). By dropping something in the first room, you have a better chance of finding where you are on the map. Directions will be forward, right, backward, and left instead of north, east, south, and west - <clean mirror;gaze mirror> - now you're in the maze.

  To get to the end of the maze, you're going to have to map it. (sorry). The maze changes every boot. Once you're in the room that has the exits 'enter' and 'maze', DO NOT ENTER, go to step 12 now.

Step 12: Once you're in front of the castle - <examine stone; wiggle stone; d>

Step 13: <kill dragon>
  88,258 : Dragon

Step 14: <put horn in conical hole; put feather in oblong hole; put tail in cylindrical hole; get ring of power>

Step 15: Heal now if you need to - <out; enter; u; kill wizard>
  63,846 : Wizard


Step 16: <enter crack; melt ring in lava>

DONE!

To get back to Chaos:
<out; d; out; maze; (follow your map back to the room with Portal/Maze as exits); portal; out; 4e; 2s; 4w; 2s; 2e; s; 3w; s; 2w; 2n; 3w; vortex>
