Xhifhut Strings
[Inventory] All Races
These animal hairs are bound to the
body of the instrument known as the
xhifhut. The sound created by the
xhifhut closely resembles the fricative
noises made within the Antica's necks.

Is Antican Veles incorrect?

According to the mob drop section, the Antican Veles drops the strings. Is this a mistake or are there two monsters dropping the strings?

Bow - Antican Hops Western Altep, E-6,F-6
Body - Antican Sigs Western Altep/Quicksand Caves, enter @J-9
Strings - Antican Aeds Western Altep/Quicksand Caves, enter @D-12
Head - Hastatus XI-XII Western Altep/Quicksand Caves, enter @G-6

sigs and aeds can be tricky to kill being that there are so many link possibilities.
hastatus is lottery spawn every 2hrs @the crossroads in Quicksand Caves from various ants, (pld, war, rng, blm types)lv65+
note: aeds in hastatus area do not drop strings, rdm can solo all mobs.

also, sand mantle isnt 100%.
you get four items from a crate, i ended up with
platinum b. coin
tree cuttings
kindred seal
green chip

quest is repeatable, good luck.

I got this from an Antican Aedilis (rng type) in Quicksand Caves (entrance that goes to the zm6 bc). I dont know if the Antica Veles drop it like it says here.

It was the last I needed for the quest. Finished the quest and found 1 Red Rock, 1 Cactus Stem, 1 Kindred Seal and 1 Sand Mantle at the ??? marked by the goblin

I'm quoting a person's post that you will find when you look at the "Sand Mantle"

Seems that this 1/4 items needed to complete a quest for the Sand Mantle.

u need to get all 4 Xhifhut items, string, bow, body and head. trade to goblin npc in altepa desert on a earth day and recieve sand mantle.

I got these off of high level anticans in the Quicksand Caves (the entrance off of the map in West Altepa). What are they for?
