The pilgrim and prayer part should not be any problem so i'll just skip it. Just find some one with a warp to Umbala to send u there. Saves alot of time.
Now on to the undead valkyrie part, which alot of people die trying. This test is full of freaking bugs. Some bugs work against u, but there is one that works for you, which alot of people don't realise
IMPORTANT: Remember to summon your valkyrie and re-equip your gear after u get sent to the test room!
In my first attempt while walking across the bridge, I am a FS build, no TU, no ME, so its a tough time for me. I came across zombies and nightmares. At first, I tried to kill everything in my path. Healing the zombies instantly kills them. The nightmare is however a pain in the ass. I had to holy light them like 7-8 times. Wasted alot of time there. Everytime i reach the 3rd or 4th Nightmare, I get booted out of the test room. Repeated like almost 10 times, get booted out every single time.
I then read a guide that said to ignore all the insignificant mobs and head straight to the valkyrie. To kill the valkyrie without TU or ME, simply make sure u have assumption on before you reach her, cast safety wall first, then head into the safety wall, and start to Ressurection bomb her. U should instantly kill her in 3-4 tries max.
Now here is the bug that works for u: By right if your valkyrie dies, you fail the test. However, I completed the test and passed it although both my first and 2nd valkyrie died!!!!!
So the trick is.... play rambo. Ignore your own valkyrie and all the small mob. Let her die for all I care. AGI up yourself and bash straight to the undead valkyrie to ress bomb her (for those who dun have ME and TU). Then head straight for the final NPC at the map to get yourself job changed!!!
PS: Apparently the undead valkyrie gives a WHOPPING amount of EXP. and I mean WHOPPING. Apparently I killed her so many times (always get kicked by the 2nd test and had to redo the first, untill i realised it doesnt matter if your own valkyrie died lol) untill my exp was 300 over % at 99. The moment I changed into AB and killed my first monster outside, I straight away leveled up to Base 101!!! ROFL. So if u have to kill the valkyrie again, dun feel so bad. Treat it as EXP in advance
One last thing. The odin temple map is very deadly. It is strongly recommended to get a party to escort u there. I had the help of my RK friend to escort me there.
