Windhawk first character guide

Recommended Posts

This will help you guide you to midgame, connecting the gap between just starting out and endgame.

First steps:




When you first create your character, you will need to go through the introduction, which is just an information dump.

  • Pick 100x exp rates and if there’s no other dialogue window popping up then type @refresh and talk to Oliver Balmer to restart the introduction.
  • Afterward just read through the whole thing and finish the introduction.


If this is your first ever character then go to Character Select and create another char and play that instead (first char gets special stuffs and you can come back later to check the freebies).


Now relog and you will receive your Level Up Rewards box.

Talk to the Job Changer and job change to Archer.



Go down and get out to Fortessa (Shining Moon’s main town)

Open all the grape boxes and sell the grapes along with your rental weapons, bow, knife and cotton shirt to the Special Tool Dealer.





Type @go eden then type /navi moc_para01 107/86 and follow the arrows.

Talk to Beginner Shadow NPC and get the Beginner Shadow.

Talk to Beginner Weapons and get the Paradise Bow and physical armor.

Now dump all your points into DEX and level to job 50.

You should have autoloot all on by default but if that’s not the case then type @autoloot 100

Remember to talk to the Healer NPC (looks like a Poring) for free heal and Blessing + Agi Up.

Get arrows from Special Tool Dealer (scroll down to Single Ammunition -> Archer), I mainly use holy arrow for most things but change accordingly if you need the elemental bonus.

After getting job 50, type @go office and talk to Job Changer to become Hunter.



Sell everything you have looted so far even the Hunter Bow (except for cards and costumes).

Go back to the spot you got the beginner equipment to get better equipment.

Talk to Intermediate Weapons and get Paradise Hunter Bow.

Get to level 70 then @go eden and walk up to the counter and talk to Lime to join the Eden Group.



Now you can take Eden board quests.

Walk a bit to the right and accept quests from the Mission [70 - 99] board.

Now @warp ve_fild07 and kill 30 Stapo (use fire arrow).

Do not turn in the quest yet, just level to 99 at mag_dun02

At level 99, go back to the Job Changer and rebirth.

Level -> High Archer -> Level -> Sniper.

Go back to Eden and finish the Stapo kill quest from the Mission [70 - 99] board.

Level up to 99 base and 70 job (either at mag_dun02 or finish another quest from the 70 - 99 board).

Talk to the Job Changer and become Ranger.







Third Job:




Sell everything you looted and go back to Eden ( /navi moc_para01 107/86 ) to get better equipment.

Talk to Beginner Shadow to get Advanced Shadow and Ranger Advanced Paradise Shadow Weapon.

Talk to Advanced Armors to get the physical equipment set.

Talk to Intermediate Weapons to get Paradise Ranger Bow (from Advanced Weapon).

Sell the old set of equipment so they don’t take up space.

Now open the skill window and click the Etc tab and hotkey Soul Control, Spiritual Energy, and Random Target.

  • Soul Control gives you free all stats (up to 10).
  • Spiritual Energy gives you free Blessing and Agi Up when the Spiritual Energy bar is full (on the bottom right of your screen, if you don’t see it just relog).
  • Random Target is for the smart cast system, @sc 1 to enable it. Since it’s a bit buggy sometimes, Random Target helps unstuck the targeting system. With this system, you only need to press your skill hotkey to cast, no need to also click on a target, as long as the system has a target (some skills are excluded from this system like Arrow Shower, which can be cast normally)


Use Sharp Shooting as your damage skill.



My stats at level 105

Always keep Improve Concentration, True Sight, Soul Control and Wind Walk active.


Talk to Illusion Dailies at @go eden and /navi moc_para01 14/36  and accept Illusion of Moonlight quest.

@warp pay_d03_i (or talk to Warper NPC -> Illusion Dungeons -> Illusion of Moonlight) and finish the kill quest.

Go back to Illusion Dailies and finish quest.

@warp sp_os (or talk to Warper NPC -> Fields -> Illusion Fields -> Special Border Area OS) and kill stuffs and collect 80 Unknown Part and 60 Cor Core.

Level to 150 if you are not 150 yet.


Level 150 stats (with True Sight, Blessing, Agi Up, and Soul Control)


At level 150, @go exchange and go a bit to the left and talk to Grace Exchanger NPC (Grace Equipment)

Get Grace Sharp Suit, Grace Attack Boots, Grace Attack Manteau, and Grace Attack Ring from Unknown Parts Exchange.

Get three Grace Refine Ticket from Cor Core Exchange.

Refine the suit, boots, and manteau.

Sell everything you looted (except for cards, costume, oridecon, and elunium, just storage them).

Level to 200 with the other Illusion Dailies quests and https://wiki.shining-moon.com/index.php/Leveling_Guide#Player_Guides

If you find being overweight annoying, type @ws gym pass and buy one with the zeny you got from NPCing everything, then @go payon and walk up until you see Ripped Cabus



Talk to him and use the one gym pass for 10k weight.

If you struggle to kill stuffs, use Unlimit.

At level 200, talk to Job Changer and become Wind Hawk.






Fourth Job:


Drop the Attribute Status menu down and put every point into POW, max POW first then all to CRT.

@warp nif_dun01 (or Warper -> Lv 250 Expansion -> Niflheim Dungeon -> Level 1) and level to 230 or 240.

Lure mobs -> Gale Storm -> Finish off with Sharp Shooting (use Unlimit for faster kills).

At level 230 or 240, you should improve your equipment first before leveling to max.

Create a party and do Ghost Palace instance on Hell difficulty (https://wiki.shining-moon.com/index.php/Ghost_Palace), each run should give 120+ Gray Piece and has a small chance of dropping Thanos Weapon Reform Cube (ID: 100591).

If the cube doesn’t drop, buy it with @ws 100591, or farm the instance again after the server resets (00:01 server time, use @time to know).

Or you can create another character and level it up to do the instance again instead.

Anyway, you need the cube, 400 gray pieces, and refine materials.

Refine materials you will need to buy from @ws

  • @ws +8 for the weapon refine ticket
  • @ws 6315 for the limited enriched oridecon
  • @ws 6226 for the hd bradium

lYou probably need to farm zeny so here are a few ways:

  • @warp gefenia02


After getting enough gray pieces and the cube, @go 46

Walk a bit to the left and talk to the Ghost Palace NPC.

Buy Thanatos Bow, use the +8 weapon refine ticket to +8 the bow, then use the limited oridecon to +10 the bow.

Equip the bow, @go 0, walk right, into the Refiner building, walk in a bit more and talk to Basta and refine the bow to +11, then take off the bow and double click the refine ore and refine the bow to +12. If it fails just repeat the process and talk to Basta again.

  • Note: Basta has 100% success chance refining from +10 to +11 for both weapon and armor.

Now use the cube to transform the Thanatos Bow into a Thanos Bow-AD.

Then you buy Thanos Shooter Helmet (ID: 400141) and Thanos Helm Reform Cube (ID: 100695) and repeat the process above for a +12 Thanos Shooter Helmet-LT

  • Note: The reason we refine first then reform is because reforming turns the bow into a Level 5 bow, and the helmet into a Level 2 helmet, which are way harder to refine.
  • Note 2: Refine materials for armor (level 1):

@ws +7 or @ws +8 for armor refine ticket

@ws 6314 for limited enriched elunium

@ws 6225 for hd carnium


At the same time you are farming for zeny/gray piece, you can also farm for a pair of full penetration shadow gears.

@warp orcsdun01, kill Orc Zombie for Penetration Shadow Shoes (ID: 24373), farm for like 20 of them.

Come back to town to refine them, use the elunium I told you to put into storage.

If you need additional elunium, you can farm it at:

  • @warp beach_dun2
  • @warp gl_knt02

Just keep refining and breaking until you get 10 +7 shoes, then @ws purgatory coin and buy 10 (should be 1m each or less if not just use #trade)

Then @go 50, and talk to Box Trader and buy Full Penetration Shadow Mix, then use that mix to make a random Full Penetration shadow piece.

Repeat the process to make another piece.

  • If they are a pair (pendant + earring, or armor + shoes), then just refine them to +10 by using +9 shadow hammer and then old enriched elu + blacksmith blessing.
  • If they are not a pair, ask a trade on #trade or repeat the process again.


Something to get also when you are farming these things, is temporal set (temporal boots and manteau and maybe armor).

  • Do Old Glast Heim Normal and Hard, you should be able to do them on normal difficulty easily, maybe try OGH Normal on Hell mode once to see how it goes.
  • Some info https://wiki.shining-moon.com/index.php/Old_Glast_Heim_Normal
  • @go 46 a bit to the bottom left, talk to Old Glast Heim NPC to get Temporal LUK Boots. Enchant it for Expert Archer, the other enchant doesn’t matter too much.
  • @go 46 and talk to Otherworldly Prisoner -> Old Glastheim -> Temporal Crystal Shop to get Temporal AGI Manteau and maybe Unexpected Fortune Armor.
  • The reason I say maybe is because you can skip the armor and go straight to endgame armor (and use Grace suit in the mean time).


At this point you can continue farming zeny to buy endgame equipment or farm whatever you can and buy the rest, either way you will need to buy something from other people or it will take forever to get to endgame.





Cards you can farm:




Headgear: Purple Ferus card (ID: 48214)

Armor: Angry Nine Tail card (ID: 27082) or Dame of Sentinel card (ID: 4392)

  •  Note: Dame of Sentinel + Empathizer combo is really good early game so you should go with them.

Weapon: White Knight card (ID: 4608) or Resentful Archer Skeleton card (ID: 27086)

Garment: Empathizer card (ID: 300270) or Galensis card (ID: 300261)

Boots: Blut Hase card (ID: 27256) or Enraged Cookie card (ID: 31017)

  • Blut Hase card can be farmed from Geffen Magic Tournament instance.
  • Enraged Cookie card can be farmed from Horror Toy Factory instance 

Accessory: Void Mimic card (ID: 300278) or Revolver Buffalo Bandit card (ID: 27171)


The cards I did not specify where to get you can use @whodrops ID and then @whereis monster ID and then @warp map name





Here are some endgame builds you can follow after this:


Get yourself the costume stones from those builds for some cheaper upgrade. Costume are easy to farm and you get a costume garment on your first ever character (Costume Bag of Antonio)



This is the end of the guide, have fun out there.
