The World Quest[edit | edit source]

Upon reaching level 70, a system message appears advising you to talk to the Elder in Archosaur. The Elder will give you a fantasy token which tells you to speak with Li Mengpai regarding the topic "A Paperclip for a Villa".

The Fantasy Token must be in the Quest Items tab to start the WQ:

  1. Speak to Li Mengpai in Archosaur West District (531-641) to obtain the Paper Clip.
  2. Speak to Tu Heng in Archosaur West District (532 645) to obtain volume 1.
  3. Speak to the NPC indicated below based on the volume number you received from Tu Heng.
  4. Make sure to have 2 spots free in your inventory, or you won't get the next volume (there's no actual reason for this, it just is).
  5. Keep exchanging the volumes from one NPC to another up to volume 37.
  6. Once the final item of Paperclip-for-Villa is obtained, return to Li Mengpai in Archosaur West District (531-641) for the reward(s) and to obtain the Fantasy Token (needed for the next WQ).

The World History Volume[edit | edit source]

Traveling Faster and Safer[edit | edit source]

If you plan on going AFK while you fly from one bookstop to another, it may be wise to use the Autopath feature at max height. Make sure to not cancel flight automatically, as some of the NPCs are near mobs.

If you'd rather teleport, there are a number of teleportation shortcuts that you can use.


  • When autopathing to Volume 27, watch out for Cyannair Specters while flying to and from this NPC. They can attack long range and they follow players to the end of the world. Literally! The only way to lose them is to dive in water and swim all the way down.
  • When autopathing to Volume 28, Chinling, be careful not to go AFK for too long. Pai Li the Painter is close to the Huggy Hares. Landing near/on top of Pai Li could aggro the Huggy Hares. If you are AFK for too long, these lovable bunnies could eat your charm or kill you.

Mysterious Items[edit | edit source]

These items 'may' randomly appear in your inventory after obtaining a volume. It appears these items were used in the first version of Perfect World (PWI is version 2) in the so called "Housing system". This feature was removed with the new version, but the items are left in the game. The items are of no use at the moment, just sell them to a merchant and earn 5,000 coins.
