Eye for an Eye is part of the Tales of the Arc miniquest series. The miniquest requires completion of Jed Hunter and having Cyclosis discovered in the Player-owned port minigame.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Preparation[edit | edit source]

Ichi chathead.png

Talk to Ichi on the eastern part of Cyclosis. After some encouragement, he tells you that various cyclops citizens have gone missing at night. Talk to Lookout Ekahi to advance to nightfall.

Night-time lookout[edit | edit source]

The army of Zyclops

Talk to your faithful Lookout, and he tells you that unlike other cyclopes, he can see in the dark, as he has perfect vision. He tells you he sees movement by the towers of Sun and Moon which are between the path to the pier.

You must run south-west and kill 27 Zyclops before they abduct another cyclops. If you are able to kill them all as they come up from the pier, then your job is easier. However, some may slip past you.

They come in 3 waves, and you should kill all of the zyclops in a wave before proceeding to the next one. The waves will head to 3 different neighbourhoods of 3 huts each, and each hut has one cyclops inside. The first wave of 6 zyclops goes to the 3 huts just north-west of Lookout with 2 Zyclops for each hut, the second wave of 9 Zyclops goes to the 3 huts south with 3 Zyclops for each hut, and the last wave of 12 Zyclops goes to the 3 huts to the north with 4 Zyclops for each hut.

After killing the third zyclops of the first wave, the second wave of 9 goes to the south. Finish killing the first six before going south to kill the next 9. After killing the twelfth, the third wave of 12 more goes to the north. Again, kill all 9 in the south before going to the last wave to the north.

If you want to see where the 3 waves will go to, don't talk to Lookout yet and explore the area to locate the 3 neighbourhoods. You will not be able to open your world map because it is too dark. Talk to the Lookout to continue.

When they are dead, talk to Ekahi to advance to morning. Speak with Ichi and Ekahi again.

Getting salty[edit | edit source]

See chathead.png

Speak with See the Moon Priestess near the divination spot to the southwest, and ask her about the Zyclops. She tells you that salt can be used to ward off evil spirits. Collect 30 sea salt from the salty crabletines on the north-western coast of the island if you do not have any yet, then talk to Sinuman, who is located to the north-east of the bank. She gives you a bag of crushed salt. Then, go west of the banker Kotahi and talk to Daya the Sun Priest, who will bless your salt.

Return of an old foe[edit | edit source]

Undead Jed chathead.png
The boss fight with Undead Jed.

Speak with Ichi who will ask you to look for Ekahi because it is approaching nightfall. It will now be night again on the island. Next, you will need to go to the far north-eastern shore of the island. To get there, first go to the north-western most coast of the island (where the crabletines were during the day) and travel north-east along the narrow section of beach. Talk to Undead Jed and fight him. If Jed and Ekahi are missing, you must talk to Ichi, once in nightfall mode, to make them appear. Despite the boss health bar animation playing, you will easily defeat Jed and then be transported to the dock next to your ship. Speak with Ekahi once more to complete the miniquest.

    • Corrected a typo in Daya's dialogue during the Eye for an Eye miniquest.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The quest name references the phrase "an eye for an eye", used to describe an idea that a person who causes suffer to another person should receive the same treatment as the victim.
  • When talking to Ekahi after defeating Jed, your character will say "Jed's dead Ekahi. Jed's Dead.". This is a reference to Pulp Fiction.
  • Before fighting Undead Jed, he calls the player a "dairy farmer", a reference to the insult sword-fighting mechanic in the Monkey Island series of adventure games. After the fight and having returned to your ship, Flippers McGraw (if he has previously been recruited to your crew) comments that a zombie pirate crew is a cliche, which may refer to LeChuck's repeated use of undead crew aboard his ships throughout that series.
