World Quest (also called "Paper Clip for Villa") is available from level 70+. The objective is to collect and exchange volumes of the World History from NPC located throughout the World.
World Quest is another daily quest, which can be repeated once per day. The 24-hour duration starts at midnight, server time.
Level 70-79 = 226,000 exp and 45,200 spirit
Level 80-89 = 452,000 exp and 90,400 spirit
Level 90+ = 678,000 exp and 135,600 spirit
Final Item of Paperclip-for-Villa
Upon exchanging the last volume (37) the final item of Paperclip-for-Villa is randomly given, with a 50% chance for "Title of the Villa" and a 10% chance for each of the other bonus rewards.
Those six possible final items are:
- Title of the Villa = Standard reward (see Rewards)
- Reviews of World History = additional 10% Spirit
- World History: Prologue = additional 10% Experience
- World History: Picture Version = additional 20,000 Coins
- World History: Another Version = additional Mirage Celestone
- World History: Postscripts = additional 5 Reputation
The World Quest
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:
- Speak to Li Mengpai in Archosaur West District (531-641) to obtain the Paper Clip.
- Speak to Tu Heng in Archosaur West District (532 645) to obtain volume 1.
- Speak to the NPC indicated below based on the volume number you received from Tu Heng.
- 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).
- Keep exchanging the volumes from one NPC to another up to volume 37.
- 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).

Traveling Faster and Safer
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.
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.
