[Malaya Quest] Bakonawa Extermination

From those jeepneys and traditional/native clothing of the NPCs to having its own Rizal Monument, Port Malaya is definitely the virtual representation of the Philippines. In line with that, it has incorporated different Filipino Mythological creatures as MVP monsters one which is the Bakonawa.



Trivia: Bakonawa is a dragon in Philippine Mythology that is often represented as a gigantic sea serpent which is believed to be the cause of eclipses, and he is right over there above. 


Just like the other Malaya quests, this is another talk to the NPC-hit-enter-all-the-way quest. Be sure to check out the tips before proceeding with the quest.


Items/Pre-Requisite:[Main Quest]

/ic:  Complete the Cautious Village Quest first.

/ic:  Hunt for 17 Lost Belongings. These are dropped by Tiyanak (5.00%) non -trade and not storageable.


1. In Port Malaya, speak with the Village Chief (malaya 283, 265) at the park and select "I'm on my way".
  • He is undecided whether to fight Bakonawa or to calm it by sacrificing a gift because of it's threat.
  • He heard that the belongings of the missing people are found at Baryo Mahiwaga.
  • He tells the you that Tiyanaks carries those belongings and asks the you to retrieve 2 Lost Belongings from Tiyanak and take them to the Missing Person's Father.

Refer to the pic below for the NPCs that you need to talk to in steps 2-5.

2. Speak with the Missing Person's Father (malaya 270, 267) and he tells the player that the lost belongings belong tot . He then asks the player to get 7 Lost Belongings and bring them to the Missing Person's Friend.


3. Bring them to the Missing Person's Friend (malaya 266, 274) and he tells you that those are the marbles and toys he gave him and asks where is his friend. He asks you to get 3 Lost Belongings and deliver them to the Missing Person's Son.


4. Deliver the lost belongings to the Missing Person's Son (malaya 269, 278) and he tells you that is his father's clothes and shoes. He asks you to bring 5 Lost Belonging to the Missing Person's Mother.

5. Bring them to Missing Person's Mother (malaya 266, 284) and she'll tell you that it's her child's hair comb. Return to the Village Chief.
6. Speak to the Village Chief. He concludes that all the missing people were killed by the Bakonawa.
  • He tells you to get rid of it by yourselves. However, it seems that it could be no longer possible to handle rituals to calm the Bakonawa.
  • He tells the you that the Young Fortune Teller seeks for their help.
  • He will give you 5 Inside-Out Shirts.

7. Speak with the Young Fortune Teller (malaya 289, 364).

  • She tells you that the energy of the moon is growing weaker the past days and that is the reason why evil spirits are increasing in numbers.
  • She tells you that she is holding a ritual to restore the moon's energy.
  • To be able to that, she needs to sacrifice a monster's blood. She asks you to hunt 15 Tikbalang.
8. Return and speak to her after hunting. Although the official says that she will give you Tikbalang Harness (taming item for Tikbalang), in our server she will give you Red Potion. This is to prevent flooding of the taming item.
9. Speak with the Village Chief again. He tells the you that he never know when the Bakonawa will attack the village. In preparation, he asks you to help set traps near the village & lake entrance. Just walk near these NPC's and a dialog will pop-out.
Set the traps in the following order. Refer to the mouse pointer in the picture.
For the 3rd, 4th and 5th trap, this is located inside the dungeon. Just enter the lower right portal you see in your map in Malaya Field 1.

10. After setting all the traps you decide to return to the Village Chief. He thanks and rewards you with 7 Lesser Agimats, EXP & Job EXP.

- Defeating Bakonawa - 


/ic:  Once you enter the instance, do not leave as the NPC will not let you go back.

/ic:  Yggdrasil Berries and Yggdrasil Seeds are not allowed in the instance. Bring lots of Cero.

/ic:  Bring a mace with Doppel Cards (as long as you reach 193 ASPD) as you will need this to kill the 2 gongs and 2 cauldrons which takes 1 damage only and has 200 HP.

/ic:  There are some players who recommend using Sidewinder card for Double Attack. However based from my experience, I use Stormy Knight Card for the autocast Storm Gust as it sometimes freezes the invisible enemy.

/ic:  Bring unfrozen Armors and Strong Shield to prevent freeze status and knock back from the AoE spells.

/ic:  Do not use @return upon finishing the quest (breaking the treasure box) as you need to talk to the NPC again for your reward.

/ic:  CD of the instance was originally 7 days, but was changed to 1 day.


1. Once inside the instance, speak to Taho once your party is buffed and ready to go. Tell him you are ready and he will summon Bakonawa.
Phase 1: Bakonawa appears inside the lake. In this phase, Meteor Storms shower down, but other than that very few skills are used and it should be easy to defeat him. There is a 10 minute time limit for this Phase.
Phase 2: When he is defeated, he will move further into the lake and try to swallow the moon. You must make noise by defeating the 4 Instruments that appear. These are plant type, meaning they take only one damage per hit, and seem to have around 200 HP (forgot to Sense). While you are attacking these, Meteor Storms will continue raining down on your party. There is a 5 minute time limit for this Phase.
/e29 At this phase do not engage the Bakonawa.
/e29 If you died at the instance just wait for the time limit, the NPC might let you try again.
Phase 3: Enraged Bakonawa appears near the lake again and you must defeat him. As before, Meteor Storms rain down, but he now uses other skills such as Storm Gust, Lord of Vermillion and Break Weapon. 
When he dies, a Treasure Box is spawned to the south of the lake that contains the loot. Meteors often continue to rain down until it is broken, so bring a just-in-case Res Token.
Again, do not Bwing or @load or @return right after as you still need to talk to Taho again for your reward.
