The president has ordered a full-scale investigation of Zepwell Island. You are to travel to the Quicksand Caves located in the central Altepa Desert. Report to Iron Eater for a briefing.
To start the mission, go to any of the Bastok gate guards after donating enough crystals to get your rank points bar at about 1/3rd full. The mission NPC will tell you that you are being sent to investigate the Quicksand Caves and that you should go talk to Iron Eater for more details.
Go talk to Iron Eater, located in the Metalworks by the President's Office door. This will trigger a cutscene with you, Iron Eater, and Volker. They will explain a few more interesting details about the mission and then send you on your way.
Your next stop is going to be the Quicksand Caves entrance located at (G-6) in the Western Altepa Desert zone. Make your way south through the hallway to (J-8), then turn west to the weighted door at (H-8). Go through the door heading south and you will find another weighted door -- go through it.
Once you pass through both weighted doors the path will dead end in a small area with a ??? at (G-11). Checking the ??? will spawn three Antican NM's which you will need to defeat. Clear the room before spawning the NM's.
A recommended order for killing the NMs is:
Once the three Anticans are dead, check the ??? again for a cutscene with Zeid. He will tell you a little story and then instruct you to head to (H-8)in the Quicksand Caves where you will find a mural on the wall.
At this point, head to the far southwest entrance to Quicksand Caves from Western Altepa Desert. Head to (C-11) to find a tunnel leading south that takes you off the map. Follow it around to an open area with a ramp leading down into the Quicksand Caves.
Once inside, follow the right wall the entire way. At (K-8) you will come to another weighted door leading east. Go through that door and continue to follow the caves. You will arrive at another weighted door at (G-8) facing east. Again, go through that door into a smaller room with another door.
Once through the second weighted door and through the door behind it, you will notice the mural on the wall to your left, and a ??? on a small pedestal. Check the ??? for another cutscene with Zeid and some interesting story line.
