  1. Windugo

    Just did the questline for Call of Cygnus and Elemental Expert on my wind archer. However I only got the Elemental expert skill. Is this guide still accurate and it bugged or is there a new separate quest for Call of Cygnus?

  2. FMAlchemist

    Ayumilove, what happened to empress’s prayer ? i though it was before on the begginer skill.

  3. Ian Jan

    Hi Ayumi,

    How can i get the “Elemental Expert” Skill on my Blaze WIzard? I already completed the quest for it ang i already have the “Call of Cygnus” Skill, But the “Elemental Expert” skill is nowhere
    to be found. Did i miss something? Or is there another quest for it?

  4. RenLouis

    sadly, this doesn’t affect mihile since he is teacher for dawn warrior T-T, ark is a pain for mihile to get his noble mind to level 6.

  5. helpmepls

    Will i get a notification for the quest for mw?

  6. CooKiez

    wait… isn’t damien the brother of the demon slayer/avenger?

  7. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks SoR0XaS for the information regarding the Noble Mind Quest! I have added the chain quest in this guide :)

  8. Anon

    Thanks!

    It appears to start at level 125 (the quest was locked when checked at lv123).

    The quest name is “The Mind of a Knight : Beginning”.

    I also found youtube video that confirms this but from 129 > 130

  9. SoR0XaS

    I’m not ayumi, but here goes.

    Since Cygnus Returns patch (Awakening in GMS), Noble Mind is levelled up every 5 levels, starting from 120, all the way to 150. To level it up, there’s a quest on the left side that you accept (Noble Mind – X. May be diff for GMS, X is Noble Mind upgrade number). Head to Ereve and talk to Nineheart. He’ll level up your Noble Mind skill for you.

  10. Anon

    Hello Ayumi! This was posted yesterday, woo! 1st comment XD

    I’ve been a longtime fan, I was shocked when your youtube account was deleted Dx, but anyways, not here to chat about that :P

    I’ve read all the sources (basil and all) and done the quests as much as I can to level up “Noble Mind”. I’m 125 now, with Echo & Cyngus blessing (MW).

    However, when speaking with Della (after Neiheart told me to find), she doesn’t tell me anything & pressing up at the fountain didn’t change anything (it was suppose to)

    Is this quest bugged in GMS?

    Is it true that I can level to 150 in placement of this?
