  • Speak to a Gate Guard to accept the mission. They'll instruct you to see Medicine Eagle (H-6) in Bastok Mines.
    • This mission requires a certain level of Rank Bar. 4 crystals will do it.
  • You must then speak with Drake Fang (H-6), who is in Zeruhn Mines, near the boat. You will get a cutscene telling you to go to Altepa Desert.
  • Head to Western Altepa Desert, and seek out a ??? on the west side of (G-8), inbetween three glowing rocks. Buff up and check it. This will spawn two NMs, Western Sphinx and Eastern Sphinx.
    • You only need to defeat one, but it is difficult to pull only one. Either pull one and wait for the other to depop, or just defeat both. They are immune to Sleep and Lullaby.
  • Check the ??? again to receive the Key ItemAltepa moonpebble.
    • Note: If you zone before receiving the Key ItemAltepa moonpebble, you will have to fight both NMs again.
  • Return to Bastok Mines and speak with Tall Mountain (J-7) on the bottom level near the restricted area. After the cutscene, the mission will be complete.
  • Teleport to Home Point #3 for fast access
