1st Awakening Quest & Level 50 skill

Reach level 50 and enter North Vern, follow the Main Story Quest to Vern Castle until you're asked to unlock the Chaos Dungeon. After this point Beatrice will notify you to visit her in Trixion. Do so by using the Song of Trixion found in your Sheet Music (F2) and accept herAdventure Quest. Completing it will reward the final level 50 skill and the Awakening Skill of your class.

Chaos Shards

Unlocking your Awakening skill is not enough, you need a specific currency to be able to use it! Each use consumes 1 Chaos Shard, these can be bought for 250 Silver at General Merchants found in all major cities in the game. These shards are tradable between players, if you run out of them in a dungeon, ask your friends to share some or purchase them in the Auction House.
