Description

Vamorcote needs you to find a key that was apparently buried in the Batallia Downs. The key he is looking for is actually dropped from a Notorious Monster Tree type mob. This NM Tree is called Ahtu and spawns at J-11 in the Batallia Downs on a small island. You will need 1 other person besides yourself before you begin your journey. Make sure that each of you can cast Sneak and Invisible on yourselves. Also be sure to bring along a WHM or BLM, so you can Teleport, or Warp after you are finished. If you can't seem to find one, try to get a Scroll of Instant-Warp. It is also recommended that you should be of level 55 or higher. Ahtu can tend to hurt.

When you're finally ready, head out to Batallia Downs and go to I-10 inside the small cave. This is the entrance to Eldieme Necropolis. Once inside, put sneak on, and ALWAYS keep it on. Now head to J-8 with your partner. Then go South to I-9. This is where you and your partner will split up. Have one person go to H-9, where they should be standing in front of Shiva's Gate. If this gate is in fact open, walk inside and turn immediately south. This is Titan's Gate, and it should be closed. If Shiva's Gate is not open, the other person must then open it.

The person still standing at I-9 must proceed North into I-8. Put invisible on and then proceed to H-8. There is a Bomb type mob here, who detects by sight and magic, so do not cast anything around him, and make sure you are invisible before going to H-8. Pass by the bomb into another small room, and you will see a switch. Take invisible off, and then hit the switch. Now Shiva's Gate will open, if it was previously closed.

Have the person at H-9 walk through and face South toward Titan's Gate, then hit the switch again, so that Shiva's Gate closes, and Titan's Gate opens. If Shiva's Gate is already open, you only have to hit the switch once to make Titan's Gate open.

Now the person near the switch needs to put invisible back on, and head down to H-9, near Shiva's Gate. Meanwhile the person who just went through Titan's Gate will proceed to G-9. In front of them will be a room with 9 Grave Pits in it, along with a few mobs. DO NOT walk on the Grave Pits themselves. They are actually invisible holes that will drop you down to a lower level of caves. Now to let the other person through, proceed north to G-8 in a small room. There is another switch you must hit to open and close the doors again, letting your partner in.

Once you are with your partner again, go back to G-9 with the 9 Grave Pits, go directly to the grave pit in the middle, and stand in the middle of it. You will then fall to a cave-like area, and you will be on a different map at L-12. Head East into another map and you will now appear at G-7. Finally proceed to J-9 and exit out into Batallia Downs again.

This time you will appear at J-11 on the island. It's not a very big island, so just run around until you see Ahtu, he looks like a giant walking tree, rather hard to miss. If he isn't up, you may have to wait for a while, or come back at a later time. If he is up, kill him and make sure to get the Engraved Key from him. Now you can warp off the island, or teleport, or walk back inside Eldieme Necropolis and use Escape to get out.

Finally return to Vamorcote in San d'Oria North, and trade him the key to receive your reward.

So I was going for the Stone Monument and happened on this big tree... I /check and it's Impossible to gauge! WOOT NM. So I grab my Selbina Clay, grab a copy of the Monument, and I "GET READY FOR GLORY" (300 quote, if you don't know, ask someone).

(lvl70 WHM) Stoneskin+ Blink+Aquaveil+RR and i rush him. I hit Ahtu with 2 Banish3s and a few other spells before it rips through my stoneskin and i notice I'm down to 50% mp. So I do the smart thing: REPOSE.

Ahtu wakes up once before I get full mp repose works again np. I rebuff, repose one more time and then hit Ahtu with 2 more Banish3s. Bang Key, which is what brings me here happy to discover that I just made 10k and beat an all new NM double woot.


BTW: thanks for gettin me through the gate Chuuuuu

This guy was hitting me hard as level 60 tarutaru Samurai/Ranger, but my Sidewinder took a CHUNK of his health away. I think I could have soloed it if I had Seigan and Third eye up instead of Hasso. There were RDMs and WHMs with me at the time so I wasn't worried about switching to Third Eye.

The key dropped for me and I went to Sand to do the quest. 10,000 gil reward. Easy as ****.

and yes, there ARE Tigers on that island, but they are popped through Dragoon AF2 armor. Atleast that's the only one on the island that I know of because that was the first and only time I've been there. I don't plan on going back anytime soon because I don't plan on getting AF2 for myself.

Except at the little island where you fight Ahtu, there are no tigers. In fact there is nothing, just Ahtu and the stone monument for the Selbina Clay quest.

While having one mishap ***** bomb!], getting to Ahtu wasn't much of a hassle once I got a friend.
Even with some defense gear on, he freakin' hit me for 80 each time [As a 61 Monk].
His defense and HP, however, suck, and he went down pretty fast. I seem to have a habit of wasting two hours on Treants I don't know anything about... >.>;

I am so glad that SE made a LB quest that was extremely easy. I mean you already get the items while in exp parties, and if you recalled the NPC's that you talked to, this one is a breeze. If only they were all this easy :-p. And thank you to Draguson and Firelink for helpin me with the two NPC's that I didn't know for sure. And thanx again SE for a finally easy LB quest.

Yeah it all depends on which day i is on how hard this NM is. The first three times i tried to solo it as a whm60/blm30 i was ableto get it own to 1/4 hp all three times before i ran out of mp and ha to zone the thing. I then went back the next day with a couple of yag drinks on me to get my mp back faster while healing, i couldn't even get this one down below half, actually i barely had him below 3/4 hp. By the time i zoned i had like less then 100 hp left and less then 10 mp. Then about 10 mins later my lvl 75 blm friend was finally able to come help me kill it and finish the quest. At the time i didn't realize that it depended on what day it was on how strong the NM was lol. I thought that it only applied to the avatar fights lol. I was so looking forward to actually solo'ing a higher lvl NM as a whm lol, but incedently i picked the wrong game day to try it. At least i finally got him though i with a lil help. Thanx Draguson.

Took this mob as 58RDM/BLM

I waited for him to spawn .. Cast stoneskin, blink, phalanx, refresh, regen, enfire and haste..

Then i cast bind, slow, paralyze, blind, dia2,

At that point i whipped out my sword and began swinging and nuking spells inbetween hits. Took him down in about 1 min tops.. I was surprised how easy he fell after reading people say he hits hard even at 55+.

Enfeebled he was cake.. not sure what it would be like to hit him with a melee job .. but i imagine with the damage my sword did as a rdm that it can't be too difficult.

I did this on a whim last night as a 56MNK/28WHM. I didn't need a second person to help with the gates and Invis is unneccesary. Everything in there agros sound except bombs and elementals. I never saw a single bomb and only 1 elemental.

The NM fight was extremely easy. I buffed up with Protect II, Shell, Stoneskin and blink then rested and attacked Ahtu. I did 2 hour though I wouldnt have needed too. Without using any MP at all I killed him with ~620 of 1208 HP left. The fight lasted about 1 minute and I was awarded my key which I don't have enough Sandy fame to unlock the quest for >.<

a real quick way for you to boost yer fame in sandy is to take several stacks (as many as you can hold on yer person) of million corn down to the sheep guy in selbina and trade it to him. This will boost yer fame in the sandy area significantly and you will be able to do the Setting Sun quest. Hope this helps

You may need to do the first quest involving the Castle Floor Plans.

http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/quests.html?realm=San%20d'Oria&fquest=139

Try doing that first, then talk to Vamorcote, he should offer the quest. Or you may just need more fame?

I did the Castle Floor Plans quest, and I still can't get this one activated. More fame is needed, not this other quest.

Also, this other quest may lower your fame, so I wouldn't necessarily reccommend it.

I don't know of any quest that lowers your fame. If you do, let me know. But fame is based on how well ppl know you, and doing quest "good or bad" will get you known.

Went out to get my clay tablet like everyone else, knew beforehand he was a puss because my friend soloed him as a 55 BLM. He's not too tough, but be careful if you're gonna solo him. He was hitting me pretty hard and fast as a 60 WAR/NIN.

Listen to the post before mine, getting through Eldieme solo is impossible because people are a bunch of pussies and think they'll die instantly if they open the gate for someone.

Since no one really has a good idea of Locations, or how certain things work in this area, I figured I'd help people out by re-doing the quest walkthrough. Hope this helps, the information for some of these quests can be a little vaque.

Vamorcote needs you to find a key that was apparently buried in the Batallia Downs. The key he is looking for is actually dropped from a Notorious Monster Tree type mob. This NM Tree is called Ahtu and spawns at J-11 in the Batallia Downs on a small island. You will need 1 other person besides yourself before you begin your journey. Make sure that each of you can cast Sneak and Invisible on yourselves. Also be sure to bring along a WHM or BLM, so you can Teleport, or Warp after you are finished. If you cant seem to find one, try to get a Scroll of Instant-Warp. It is also recommended that you should be of level 55 or higher. Ahtu can tend to hurt.

When youre finally ready, head out to Batallia Downs and go to I-10 inside the small cave. This is the entrance to Eldieme Necropolis. Once inside, put sneak on, and ALWAYS keep it on. Now head to J-8 with your partner. Then go South to I-9. This is where you and your partner will split up. Have one person go to H-9, where they should be standing in front of Shivas Gate. If this gate is in fact open, walk inside and turn immediately south. This is Titans Gate, and it should be closed. If Shivas Gate is not open, the other person must then open it.

The person still standing at I-9 must proceed North into I-8. Put invisible on and then proceed to H-8. There is a Bomb type mob here, who detects by sight and magic, so do not cast anything around him, and make sure you are invisible before going to H-8. Pass by the bomb into another small room, and you will see a switch. Take invisible off, and then hit the switch. Now Shivas Gate will open, if it was previously closed.

Have the person at H-9 walk through and face South toward Titans Gate, then hit the switch again, so that Shivas Gate closes, and Titans Gate opens. If Shivas Gate is already open, you only have to hit the switch once to make Titans Gate open.

Now the person near the switch needs to put invisible back on, and head down to H-9, near Shivas Gate. Meanwhile the person who just went through Titans Gate will proceed to G-9. In front of them will be a room with 9 Grave Pits in it, along with a few mobs. DO NOT walk on the Grave Pits themselves. They are actually invisible holes that will drop you down to a lower level of caves. Now to let the other person through, proceed north to G-8 in a small room. There is another switch you must hit to open and close the doors again, letting your partner in.

Once you are with your partner again, go back to G-9 with the 9 Grave Pits, go directly to the grave pit in the middle, and stand in the middle of it. You will then fall to a cave-like area, and you will be on a different map at L-12. Head East into another map and you will now appear at G-7. Finally proceed to J-9 and exit out into Batallia Downs again.

This time you will appear at J-11 on the island. Its not a very big island, so just run around until you see Ahtu, he looks like a giant walking tree, rather hard to miss. If he isnt up, you may have to wait for a while, or come back at a later time. If he is up, kill him and make sure to get the Engraved Key from him. Now you can warp off the island, or teleport, or walk back inside Eldieme Necropolis and use Escape to get out.

Finally return to Vamorcote in San dOria North, and trade him the key to receive your reward.

(the same 2h, blink, meditate, third eye, and RDM buffs are awsome together. and the +60 attack and mp regen aren't too shabby either. We did this while hunting the selbina tablet. (he did ~2500 damage in about 2 minuts.

Got him yesterday while getting my last monument. Me PLD60 and a RDM62 and a WHM61 (i think) at first i was expecting the worst and used a fish mithkabob, defender, sentinel and had pro III and shell III on. After hitting it twice noticed this NM is a wuzz, took us like 1min to kill it got the key and a mistletoe. I'm pretty sure you can solo it at Lv.60 very easy mostly if you are a melee type mages probably can do it with a lv50-55 tank.

ok... seeing as how he's a level 51 mob, you're **** right he's tough to someone thats level 30. On the other hand... if on the DRG AF piece where you kill the tiger, its super easy...

BTW... Ahtu is on a 2 hour spawn timer, just in case anyone wanted to know...

I annihilated Ga'Bhu the Unvanquished in Beadeaux as a Lv65 Rng, so with that said, this guy should be significantly easier right?

Just beat this guy last night. 49WHM/24BLM (me) and a 50PLD/25WAR. Just us two. Had some fun doing it. Got it down to about 1/4 health then it started getting pretty hairy. I used Dia 2 and Banish 2 twice which chipped away at it's health slowly, also I Hasted and Regen 2'd the PLD. We were good for a little bit. The PLD would cure himself while I rested, then I'd take over when he was low on MP. By the time we had the Ahtu to what would be low orange to high red, we both were low on MP and the PLD was getting fudged up. So I told him to 2 Hour it. Invincible he was for a bit, which gave me time to pop off Benediction. That was good till the **** tree Criticalled the PLD. Knocked him all the way mid-orange. Funny part was he never lost hate with my Benediction. So I started resting hoping for the best to be able to pop off a Cure 4, that didn't happen. Cause I saw the PLD in high red by the time I had enough MP to cast a cure spell. I stood my **** up and cast a Cure 3 just in time to raise his HP to orange, when the tree hit him into low red. Then the PLD used Seraph Blade at barely 100% TP. Killed the ****. So now the PLD is 10K richer and I'm 20K richer (monument and key). Gonna go back tonight to do it again for the PLD to get a key. The really messed up part was (other than near death for PLD) was that I only got 88 EXP and the PLD got 90 for this messed up NM.

Always people ask about fame.


In my experience of having completed almost 200 original quests all over Vanadiel, it is only the really early lvl reward quests that dont require fame. There may be exceptions but Im racking my brain and i cant think of any. Now, note please that I did say reward quests. Yeah there are other types of quests that dont require fame like the af ones.

I wish I could post this on every quest page... I can understand people asking How much fame ... but asking "do you need fame" for a quest worth 10K ... YES of course you do.

feeling brave since i'm rdm/blm (can chainspell warp), i decided to solo it at lvl 57/25. he's tough, but i beat him. cheated really. chainspell drain really messes him up. but i had to convert as well.

good luck on him!

Soloed Ahtu LV58 Red Mage Full AF Except Warlock's Chappeau.

Spells Used:

Self: Enfire, Blaze Spikes, Blink, Stoneskin, Phalanx, Haste, Protect III, Shell III, Barstone, Regen, and of course Refresh.

Ahtu: Paralyze, Slow, Blind, and Sleep II.

All spells kept refreshed when worn off with the exception of Sleep II.

Fought him until 50% health when I had 140/610MP remaining. Used Sleep II, Refreshed my Stoneskin, Blink, and Phalanx, used Convert and self healed. Refreshed Enfire, Blaze Spikes, and the Ahtu's Paralyze, Blind, and Slow. Refreshed my Haste.

Note: Did NOT use any offensive spells on the Ahtu that gradually reduces HP. (With these spells Sleep based spells will NOT stick.)

Received 72 EXP and the Engraved Key.

FYI: You don't have to be level 50 to get this quest. I got this quest at about level 32 so probably you need a lot of San d'Orian fame (which I have). Just a small note, not that I intend doing it anytime soon ^_^

Just killed 2 Athus for me and a friend, 1st was very easy, 2nd quite harder, so i guess it's not always same lvl NM.

Managed to solo it as PLD60, but on the 2nd try had to use 2hr and got pretty low with no mp.

Spawn was exactly 2:30 hours to the minute
BE SMART

Be smart people... this is not a quest you do without thinking... read this thread which also contains the following :

Quote:

1) Enter Eldieme from Battalia via the southern entrance. This entrance is on the southern peninsula-looking area near Jeuno, south of the huge backbone wall thing.

2) Look on your map. The area you're in has four big rooms in a cross pattern, connected by several corridors. You need to make your way to the southern big room. This may involve fiddling with switches, which are found by going into any of the big rooms and then travelling "inwards" (i.e. if you're in the eastern room, take the west exit, you'll see a gravestone and then the lever). I don't know exactly how the levers work, but I do know that they're how you change which doors in the area are open or closed. Keep tinkering until you can get to the southern big room.

3) Drop through the middle grave in the large room. MAKE SURE IT IS THE MIDDLE GRAVE.

4) After landing, continue on your merry way. After moving maybe twenty feet, the map changes, and you can see an exit to Battalia to your southeast. Take that exit.

5) Congratulations, you're on the island. Watch out for a NM named Ahtu that might be waltzing around just outside the tunnel.

6) The Stone Monument is to your right as you exit the tunnel, about a hundred feet. Follow the rock wall.

7) Warp back, either with a spell, with a scroll, or Warrior-Style.


Yes that is right... I am saying if you stop at Selbina before hunting Ahtu for your 10,000 gil key and get a piece of clay you can trade the clay to a monument just a few feet away and get ANOTHER TEN THOUSAND GIL... so be smart... get your Selbina clay first

I got this quest at 22 but the min level to complete is 50? Seems like the min level needs to have two numbers? One number for level needed to get the quest and the other for level needed to complete the mission.

Is the engraved key an EX item, a "key item", or can you buy it at the AH?

RE: how do you get to the island ?
# Jan 16 2004 at 9:44 PM Rating: Default
If you look at the Eldieme map, you want to go to the south room, and drop through the center grave. This will likely require some manipulation of the doors/levers, so bring people able to help with that. However once you are in the south room you can also play with the levers to let the rest of the group in.

Drop down there and follow the path on the map to batallia. Ahtu will aggro, does not see through sneak though. Was a complete pushover to duo at 55 with pal and whm combination.
RE: how do you get to the island ?
# Jan 16 2004 at 9:46 PM Rating: Default
Er meaning he will aggro just means that he is aggressive. You do have some safe room when you zone in. :p

Incidentally if you are doing the batallia monument quest at the same time, it's off to the right as you zone in.

I did this quest lastnight with a level 72 and a level 62. The person above who said Ahtu is hard is not joking. Hes an NM Treant and his leaf spin did 458hp damage to me at level 31 in full centurion scale armor. I had 9hp left after that attack, and about 15 seconds later he did it again, i got extremely lucky and evaded it.

Got my key though.

If I remember right, I think the guide says the reward is 10,000 gil.
