  • Speak to Maat on a level 51 job. He will ask you for three key items guarded by monsters in Xarcabard.
  • If this is your first time heading to Xarcabard you may use the Unity level 125 → Xarcabard warp to get there.
Monster Position Key Item
Boreal Tiger (I-5) Round frigicite
Boreal Coeurl (J-6) Square frigicite
Boreal Hound (G-10) Triangular frigicite
  • The Notorious Monsters stand guard in caves have fairly large aggro range and will respawn within about 5 minutes after being defeated.
  • As of the February 2012 update, the ??? spot will always be present at the far end of the cave, you will receive the key item once you touch it.
  • As a result, you do not need to defeat the Notorious Monsters. You can simply hold them while examining the spots.
  • These NMs will no longer use draw-in, and you may run away afterwards. They will not chase you for very far.
  • You also solo these Notorious Monsters now with relative ease using Trusts.
  • Otherwise you may ride through the cave on a Mount to receive the key items, and then either remount or run out.
  • Speak to Maat once you have all three key items to complete the quest.
