It really isnt worth the time to look for a drop on these! ><
200G at the AH is a lot better than the hours it sounds like some ppl are camping these skellies!! ;)

I generally get a lot of bone chip drops from skeletons, as I have a dislike for the undead and tend to kill any one I see!! lol

But even if you do get a drop in the end...you can then resell at the AH as they get bought up pretty **** quickly...

So the money you lashed out on the bone chip from the AH, to do the quest quickly - you can get back as soon as you get another drop! ;)

Bone Chips can also be purchased at the Boneworkers guild in Windhurst. They are currently around 160 gil on Caith Sith. I realize this is a Bastokian quest, but to world travelers looking for a map (or wanting to help friends in Bastok), this is probably the cheapest way to go.

Sigh i cant seem to get this quest. I'm a level 9 and i've completed a number of quests already.

When i talk to the old man he just strikes a conversation with me and no quest given. Checked my quest log and nothing!

Argh this is so frustrating.

How do you know that it's a bone chip?

Did someone traded all sorts of things to this NPC
before he got to the right one?

Someone nearby mentions Bone Chips or bones in general in conjunction with that guy (I can't recall which).
just buy one
# Feb 07 2004 at 12:03 PM Rating: Default
if you spend more than a hour looking for a chip, just go buy one. at lvl one, you can rise in lvl soooo quickly. dont waist your time on a slow spawn at such a low lvl.
Map

You can obtain the map by going to Degenhard (old man in blue) at Bastok Market (I-10) and trade with him a BONE CHIP.

The way he stands reminds me of Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat I... ^^

I did this quest at LEVEL 1. You need decent fame, dont know at what, to do this. I have a second Char for crafting and since i had alot of the items for alot of these quests in Bastok, I just ran around doing the Gourmet Quest alot. I saw this drunk by the river and decided to talk to him and he gave me the quest to do. I returned with the Item and the quest was done. This was done when I was level 1. So the level does not matter, its the fame that does.

Ok peeps, Skeletons spawn at night. I didn't know there was a cemetery somewhere. Learned something new today. woot! I've seen skellies on Vomp Hill and in the Fumaroles in South Gustaberg. I've always gotten a bone chip for every skellie I've killed. Guess I've just been lucky. There are two skellies on Vomp Hill that spawn close to each other. Be careful though, there are also Goblins and a Blackwolf that spawn there too. The reason you may not see them too often is because Vomp Hill is heavily hunted by those searching for Goblin stuff and fire crystals. The Goblins up there drop masks and mail which sell really well at the AH. Hope that helps.

Not a bad price for the reward, yeah the bone chip is easy to get. But most maps run you 300gil to 3000 so not bad at all.

If u want high success rate, steal from a skeleton. I always seem to steal bone chips from skeleton.
Bone chips and Skeletons
# Nov 18 2003 at 5:18 AM Rating: Default
I just spent a whole night at the Cemetary atop the mountain in North Gustaberg, and several skeletons spawned (5?) but no chip as of yet.

Thinking I'll stay and level till I get one.

I've found more bone chips in North Gusta than I did in South. Skellies spawn only at night, but I've seen the bone chip drop more often there.

To do the turn in, the easiest way is from Bastok Mines, enter Bastok Market, before the end of the bridge you'll see an old man dancing on the right. That's the NPC you turn in to.

If you're not of a level where fighting skeletons is decent, just buy a bone chip from the AH, 200g really isn't that much and you'll REALLY want the Wadi map for hunting around level 8+
Spawns
# Nov 13 2003 at 12:25 PM Rating: Default
The skellies spawn on the mountains in North and South Gustaberg, only at night, and fairly infrequently. On the Northern mountain, they spawn on all three levels, but youre more likely to see them on the second level. One spawns in the graveyard, so it might be easier for you to camp for that one since it's such a small area....but your sucess rate for actually getting a bone chip would be much greater if you ran around on the second level and found more than just one to kill.

I had to kill about 6 of them before one dropped a bone chip when I was doing this quest...however, I have spent a lot of time on the N. Mountain since then, and have gottan many bone chips. If you can handle fighting the skellies, you're better off just hanging out on the mountain and killing/item collecting/levelling while you wait for the skellies to spawn at night. Buying at the Auction house is a waste of Gil...unless of course, you REALLY need the map right away, and don't feel like hunting for skeleton spawns all day.

im up to level 13, and i've only even seen 3 skeletons so far in the game... do certain monsters just spawn more on different worlds?
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 10 2003 at 2:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Heh why on earth would u pay 200 gil for such a common drop, oops did i say that, hmm maybe i should be selling these in the AH if peeps silly enough to be buying em ,, heh
RE: Why Buy?
# Nov 29 2003 at 10:12 PM Rating: Default
why buy? lots of people buy the materials ..almost every kind of material that drops sells on AH cos the crafters need them..crafters pay lots of money for materials cos they have lots of money.. i make 10 to 20 k every day selling materials and crystal

up to 500g on Diabolos.. Seems to me if I was to farm these bones it would make sense for me to say "Just buy it from the AH" as well.

One spawn point I could see on Vomp Hill for the skeleton. Spawns at night and on tier 2 or 3(2nd to last tier forgot total # tiers) right next to the ramp to last tier/where the sheep who drops the sheep meat spawns as well (which is another quest btw). So while I was waiting for the skeleton to pop up, killed some sheep and completed some quests in the process. Took me 30 minutes to complete three quests doing this. Walked away 1000g richer, and two more levels, and a nice little map.

Just buy one from the AH... They're cheap.

I fought a skeleton on the hill that's in North Gustaberg, it's just random luck that you find one.
Not on Vomphill

I was just on Vomphill at night and I wandered all around. Not a single skeleton...

You can get bone chips from skeletons. They spawn at night on top of the easternmost mountain in south Gustaberg. This is also the mountain with the fire used to cook Giant Sheep Meat into Galkan Sausage
RE: Where
# Oct 31 2003 at 7:31 PM Rating: Default
When you say eastern most, do you mean the two mountains near Vomp Hill? Or the eastern most of Vomp Hill?
