Shadow Chaser at the Secret Rouge Guild
Foreword:This is not a job change guide. I’m making this write up to relay my personal experience with the job change for Shadow Chasers. I may not be able to give the step by step procedure of the job change but I will relay some tips on the do’s and don’ts for the job change. The guide I used for the Job change is found at Ragnaboards and pRO Renewal microsite.
My Story:Finally I finished my job level on my level 99 stalker through the daily quests. I’m eager to change him into a Shadow Chaser even if it’s already in the wee hours in the evening. I started my journey on the city of Morroc full of excitement where a helpless girl gave me a hint on where to start my quest.
The Girl who triggers the job change quest for Shadow Chasers
With a quick conversation, the girl leads me to the hidden rouge guild. I find it odd that the quest started at Morroc which is deeply associated with the Assassin guild if it could directly start at the Rouge guild hide out right away. Anyways at the guild, three rouges are discussing about a treasure of the rouge guild. In order to get the treasure we need to decipher the code.
The rouges discussing about the treasure and deciphering a code
I was able to decipher the first codes with the help of the guides I mentioned earlier. It led me to a house in Prontera with Manager in it. Just like the rouges in the guild he also gave me another code to decipher. And I guess this is the start of “unlocking the treasures of the shadow chaser”.

Again I was lazy to manually unlock the code by myself so I use the guide and it led me to the Turtle Islands. I was sent there to slay the “Shadow of Deception” in the form of a Wind Ghost. My DEX-INT-VIT Stalker had a hard time killing this monsters because I had a preserved Flying Kick and not one of those offensive skills. Luckily some passers by are not aware of the job change monster so I let them hit lock the monster while I use Raid to get the last hit. Although I didn’t get the last hit, my quest window on Alt + U tells me that I killed the monster. So I'm done with the slaying part so I went back to the Blue flame and it warped me into a single room similar to the Turtle Islands architecture.

I talked to the ??? at the middle of the room and it flashed an unexpected code which I could not decipher. The code was easy if I got serious with the deciphering job. Also the guide I use didn’t mention anything about this code so I was stuck thinking about the answer. I know I was lazy and the code caught me off guard so I use another guide to provide me with an answer. So far so good I was able to fish the answer from the second guide. Lucky for me and got the Key of Deception.

Then I was sent off to the city of Rachel to meet with another manager. As usual he gave me a code to decipher. Just like what I did with the previous codes I used my guides to decipher the codes for me.

The codes brought me into the freezing cave of Ice dungeon. In the dungeon I have to defeat the “Shadow of Illusion in the form of a Skogul. The monster had a high HP according to the guide which gave me a problem. I had the same problem with the Wind Ghost on how to defeat it but lucky enough a passer by attacked the monster for me. I used Raid again hoping to get the last hit but even if I’m not the last hit I was able to accomplish my quest.

The Red flame brought me into a room similar with the Turtle Islands with a ??? NPC at the middle. I talked to the NPC and I’m not surprise that it flashed another code for me to unlock. Thanks to my guides again I was able to go through easily in deciphering. And I obtained the Key of Illusion.

My continued quest led me to the city of Juno where in I met with another manager. He gave me a code in which it leads me to the city of the dead in Niffleheim.

Similar with the turtle island and ice dungeon, I have to kill the “Shadow of Pleasure” in the form of a Succubus. Niffleheim is town where in it’s very rare to see people hanging around. I guess my luck on getting help from others fade away and it’s up to me to finish the job. After a long walk scouting for the monster I finally found the Succubus blended with a mob. I used intimidate to single her out and used Hide followed by Raid to kill her. It took me minutes to defeat her and enter the secret room of Niffleheim.

The room is creepy with Halloween theme. I guess I have to do the decipher some codes here to move on with the quest. I was able to finish the job and got the Key of Gaiety.

I have 3 keys with me already and the manager sent me to Lighthalzen to get further instructions. When I entered the building I found another manager. I guess it can’t be helped that I have to do another round of deciphering again.
Manager of Lighthalzen Atelier
He told me that the treasure lies at the winding stairs in Thanatos Tower so I need to accomplish the job again. I was able to reach the secret portal inside the Thanatos Tower safely with the help of my stealth skills and found myself in a secret room.

I talked to the NPC at the center of the room and gave me another code. Upon deciphering the code I finally got the treasure that the managers are talking about. It’s a Master’s Brush.
The treasure that I have a hard time deciphering... A Master's Brush...
I went back to Lighthalzen to give the treasure to Dumk. He explained to me that the brush is the shadow chaser’s treasure. Shadow chasers use brushes for their magic and paints just like Rune Knights using their runes and Warlocks using their magic. Because I succeeded in unlocking the secrets of the shadow chasers, Dumk changed me and become one of the shadow chasers. Congratulations!

Comments:The shadow chasers job change is well thought of. The puzzles given were hard and you need to concentrate in getting the right answer. Although some of the guides already revealed the answers, you still have the option to decipher the codes by yourself. The whole job change experience is adventurous because of the different locations that you area going to visit. The part where in you need to kill a shadows also adds to the difficulty of the job change. As a final verdict the job change for shadow chasers is outstanding.
