"I'll do it. I'll be the Warrior this time," said Lusung, the slightest of grins on his face. Yungmuk couldn't help but grin in return. Facing down the "Masked Warrior" inside the Proving Grounds was a Hongmoon tradition for all new disciples, and Lusung seemed eager to play the part for Cricket. The Masked Warrior provided a fast, hard lesson in recovering Chi, and essential battlefield technique for any warrior.

Yungmuk gently pushed back on Lusung's request. "Master Hong would say that I should probably be the one to put on the mask," Yungmuk said. But Lusung was persistent, and Yungmuk quickly relented. Lusung could have his fun. Yungmuk did hope that Lusung wouldn't be too hard on Cricket. It was supposed to just be an exercise, after all.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Yungmuk:
"It looks like you've received a letter. You had better read it."

1. Read the letter by clicking on the letter icon in the Quest Log.

Letter from Masked Warrior:
"A cricket that only trains in the light will not be prepared to fight the dark. If you wish to become a true disciple of Hongmoon, go to the Proving Grounds and confront your fear."

2. Speak with Yungmuk in the Duel Hall

"Have you been summoned to the Proving Grounds?"
"You've done well today, Cricket. We will continue training, but you are certainly a capable student. (Cricket mastered the basic techniques faster than any student I've seen. Even I took longer...)
Your next trial will prove more challenging. All Hongmoon disciples must enter the Proving Grounds. The test represents the fear we all carry inside ourselves.
If you are to be a true member of the Hongmoon, you must conquer that fear. I will take you to the cavern, but you must enter alone."

3. Follow Yungmuk to the Proving Grounds

"Let's not waste time. We're almost there."

4. Enter the Proving Grounds and defeat the Training Dummies (0/4)

Yungmuk:
"I can go no farther. You must fight alone from this point on."
"Enter the cave and face your fear head-on."

5. Fight the Masked Warrior

"Techniques are worthless if you lack the courage to wield them. Show me what you have learned."

6. Crawl out of range of the enemy and use Key Num 1 128.png to Recover Chi

"You must meditate to recover your Chi when Near Death."

7. To recover HP, use the Healing Tonic by using the Key Num 6 128.png key

Lusung:
"You're still weak. Drink the Spring Water Healing Tonic if you want to recover."
Yungmuk:
"The test is not over, Cricket. You are not a proper disciple until it is completed."

8. Speak with Lusung

"You... were chosen."
"You're not giving up, are you, Cricket?
Master Hong must have faith in you. Take time to reflect and come back when you're ready."
