Update History


Welcome to Papua Crinea



A war has been waging for a thousand years between two races on an uncharted island at the corner of the world.


Don’t let their cuddly appearances fool you.

Papus and Otters have been at war with each other for a very long time

 and now you can visit their island to see for yourself what they are fighting for.


In Papua Crinea, you must follow specific rules to progress through the quests, obtain knowledge, and interact with the inhabitants. Read along to learn everything you need to enjoy Papua Crinea!


[Papua Crinea] Quest Guide


To begin your adventure to Grándiha and Papua Crinea, you must first become a member of the Lamute Gang.

When you reach level 58, accept the quest “[Papua Crinea] An Amazing Gift Just for You” to begin the adventure with the Lamute Gang.


The Papua Crinea quests are linked to the Adventure Journal and can be found under Quest > Suggested tab.


Once you complete the “[Papua Crinea] An Amazing Gift Just for You” quest, the Lamute Gang's Adventure Journal, consisting 5 parts, will be unlocked.

The Adventure Journal is divided into Grándiha, Papu, and Otter chapters. As you complete the chapters in order, you will be rewarded transformation scrolls for either Papus or Otters.



The condition to get the “[Papua Crinea] Lamute Gang” quest is to complete the Lamute Gang’s Adventure Journal 1, so you must complete the Adventure Journal to continue with the Papua Crinea quest line.

You can check the Papua Crinea quest line via Quest (O) → Suggested tab → [The Great Expedition] Papua Crinea.

Remember to press the complete button after completing every chapter to continue with the Adventure Journal.



Reading the journal and talking to corresponding NPCs should give you the answers you need to complete them.



After completing the first book of the Lamute Gang’s Adventure Journal, you will be guided to “an island without a barterer”.

A message welcomes you on your arrival.



This island is a neutral zone, where neither Papu nor Otter can take!

This must’ve been written by the barterer guru. Someone is tired of them fighting all the time. 



Now let’s head over to the group of Papus and talk to them.



In Papua Crinea, you must transform into either an Otter or Papu to interact, obtain knowledge, and do quests. If not, you won’t be able to even talk to them.

Progressing through the Papua Crinea quest will reward you with a 1 day use transformation scroll.



Here is an example of transformation after using the Panipani Villager Transformation Scroll.



And this is when you use the Queekity Thumpity Moon Villager Transformation Scroll.

After completing the second book of the Lamute Gang’s Adventure Journal, you will be rewarded with a permanent use Brave Pine Blader Transformation Scroll.

Here’s the difference between the scrolls you’ve received thus far.

Panipani Villager Transformation Scroll

Brave Pine Blader Transformation Scroll

Lasts for 1 day and cannot be used after a day of use. Note that there is no expiration for Panipani Villager Transformation Scrolls sold at shops.

You can use this without an expiration period.

Unable to attack after use

Can attack after use


Transform into a Brave Pine Blader to be able to attack.


Transformation Scrolls


As you can see, transformation scrolls are necessities to survive in Papua Crinea.

Papus and Otters are at war with each other, so they do not trust outsiders.

So they will only speak in their own languages if you approach them without transforming.


Now, here’s how to use these transformation scrolls.


Lamute Gang’s Darkcloud Shapeshifting Dictionary

You can transform into the following Otters and Papus with the help of the Darkcloud Shapeshifting Dictionary from the Lamute Gang.




Panipani Villager

Queekity Thumpity Moon Villager

Brave Pine Blader

Gallant Conch Blader

Immortal Persimmon Knight

Undefeated Crab Knight

Holy Date Priest

Holy Sea Cucumber Priest

Dreamy Bubble Shaman

Ruinous Puffer Shaman

Frosty Chestnut Slinger

Fierce Lobster Boxer

● There are both 1 day and permanent versions of transformation scrolls.

○ You can get permanent transformation scrolls of the following through the quest line.

■ Brave Pine Blader, Gallant Conch Blader

■ Immortal Persimmon Knight, Undefeated Crab Knight

● If you lose the permanent transformation scrolls for the above Papus and Otters, you can go to NPC Benns Moanna or Benns Morio (depending on the species you want to transform into) and pay them two Benns Coins. This only works if you have already received the scrolls via the relevant Adventure Log quests and need a replacement.

● 1 day use transformation scrolls can be obtained as rewards from [For the Thousand Year War] raid quests during [Papua Crinea] quest progression.

● Panipani Villager and Queekity Thumpity Moon Villager transformation scrolls can be purchased from Benns Moanna and Benns Morio at 100,000 Silver each after completing the quests “[Papua Crinea] Moanna, Papu's Friend” and “[Papua Crinea] Morio, Otter's Friend”.

● To talk to NPCs, obtain knowledge, and progress quests on both Papuraora Island and Crioniak Island, you must be transformed into one of the 6 types of Otter or Papu mentioned above.

● Each Papu and Otter types have different skill sets, which can be seen at the bottom right once you transform into them.

● Transformation scrolls can only be used in certain places where you cannot be seen by Otters or Papus. Right click a scroll at a designated location to transform.

● Heading over to the opposing island will result in you getting attacked by guards and canceling the transformation. And you cannot talk to opposing island NPCs.


How to get Transformation Scrolls


Transformation Scrolls can be obtained from quests.

Below is an example from the Otter’s point of view.

Once you complete the “[Papua Crinea] Morio, Otter's Friend” quest, you will be rewarded a Queekity Thumpity Moon Villager Transformation Scroll (1 Day). If the scroll is depleted or you lost it for some reason, you can always visit Benns Morio to purchase it again. The one sold in the shop is for permanent use.



How to use Transformation Scrolls


1. Right clicking on a transformation scroll will show you a spot where you can transform with a pillar of light.

2. Use the scroll and press R to transform into the summoned Otter or Papu.

3. Going to the Papu island as an Otter or vice versa will result in you being attacked by guards and transformation will be lifted.

4. Some actions, such as summoning the Black Spirit or fishing, will be limited while you are transformed.

Limitations are similar to those when you are riding a horse.

As in, you cannot fish or call the Black Spirit while on a horse, but you can talk to NPCs.

So, if you need to talk to the Black Spirit, press Shift + R to end transformation.


Lamute Gang's Special Cog


During the Papua Crinea quest line, you will be able to receive a Lamute Gang's Special Cog in Grándiha.

You can get the ship license for it by completing the quest [Papua Crinea] Lamute Gang, then talking to NPC Benns Ruberen at the wharf of Grándiha.

The stats of this ship are the same as that of the Epheria Cog.


For the Thousand Year War Quests


The Papus and Otters of Papua Crinea have been fighting each other for generations in the Thousand Year War.


If you choose to fight for the Papus, you will be able to befriend Empress Papuraora but will alienate the Otters. Conversely, if you choose to fight for the Otters, you will get close to General Crioniak but get on bad terms with the Papus.

If your amity with Empress Papuraora or General Crioniak falls below -2500, you will not be able to talk with Papus or Otters (depending on which authority figure you are on bad terms with), even if you are transformed into one of them. For example, if you have low amity with Empress Papuraora, even if you are transformed into a Papu you won't be able to converse with other Papus.

Unlike the Papus and Otters you may have encountered on the main continent, those on Papua Crinea were so isolated from the mainland that they do not know how to communicate with you in your language.  

You can receive the [For the Thousand Year War] Stoneback Crab Training raid quests from Benns Moanna (Papu) or Benns Morio (Otter) at Bloodshed Beach for 5 days (1 quest per day) as you progress through the [Papua Crinea] quests.


[For the Thousand Year War] Stoneback Crab Training raid quests consist of the following.
