Atop the Highest Mountains
From FFXI Wiki
- Speak to Maat on a level 51 job. He will ask you for three key items guarded by monsters in Xarcabard.
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.
