Description

Speak to Datta near the oasis in Rabao. Create a full party, everyone level 40 or under, and go to the Kuftal Tunnel (through Western Altepa Desert). Once inside, speak to Hawk Nose who is on the cliff (nor far from entrance). Then each party member must check the ??? nearby to see an event sequence.

You don't need to worry about aggro since you can ride a chocobo to the Kuftal Tunnel and its just harmless lizards in the area of the tunnel you need to go.

Upon completion, all participants receive 8000 gil.

Fame in Rabo is linked to Sandy Hence if you have sufficient fame in Sandy to get Shiva you can get Garuda as well. So as long as you have good fame in Sandy you can get most of the quests in Rabo granted you meet any other requirements.

FYI - There is another ??? style "quest" that ends up granting you the Tungi axe which is dropped by Tribunus VII-I.

I can't seem to get the Tungi quest/item needed because of this daaaamned quest. I got the Kuftal Tunnel quest at like level 50 and a year later haven't done it >.<

Just so you all know. Guess i'd better grab 5 more peeps and shake my asstaru!

hmm ok maybe i chose the wrong title there, i dont exactly want to know what fame it takes for this quest, at least not at my end as i got the quest right away, what i need to know is do the other party members HAVE to have this quest to take part in MY party when I do this quest? will it work if they do not have the quest or will they have to accept it too?

My character is a WHM with Teleport-Altep and a level 40 BLM with Warp II. This is the lynchpin of my plan to do this. I'm going to teleport my party to altep, we'll run to Rabao and set our homepoints there. Then I will change to my BLM and everyone else changes to their sub-40 jobs and we start the quest. Afterwards, we choco to kuftal, get the custcene, and I warp II everyone back to Rabao.

After we collect our money I teleport everyone back to their crag of choice, where they are free to go and reset their homepoints to whatever it was previously.

The only way I can think to make this quest faster/easier is if people saved up their glyphs from the summerfest event. That way they can reset their homepoints simply by using the glyph from rabao.

Party, as the quest says, all lvl 40 and below, and it must be a full party. But yes everyone in the party can just take a choco to Kuftal.

I just completed this Quest, and its seriously very easy gil. The hardest part is really getting to Rabao, but thats about it. Choco from Rabao to Kuftal (for people not knowing exactly where the entrance is, its the most northern point and about mid center East to West, sorry for not knowing/being lazy to look for the exact coordinates). Once inside, you will not see an NPC named Hawk Nose, but rather as said above, just select the ???? spot on the left end of the railing, overlooking some nasty ghosts down below. Once you get the cutscene, just return to Rabao and collect your 8k gil ^^

murphys law: get a max-lvl quest of 40 after you lvl passed 40.

i'll try this quest as a lvl 15 that i don't care about. choco to kuftal and then run like ****.

i hope the reward is worth it. i'm thinking it will be gil

I just received this quest yesterday. This guy wants you and a few sub-40 friends to go walking through the Kuftal Tunnel and meet up with his partner there.

Better know a lot of red and white mages.
