The grasslands that make up the La Theine Plateau are located high above the surrounding areas. Once known for the flocks of wild chocobos that dotted the meadows, the plateau is now overrun with giant sheep that are herded by the local Elvaan. The area is also characterized by deep crevices that seem to tear apart the land; torrential rainfall is also common. As a result of the heavy precipitation, rainbows can frequently be spotted while traveling through the plateau.

The map for La Theine Plateau is included in the Map of the San d'Oria Area, which can be purchased from most any Map Dealer.

Wow, I was just about to post that information this very day ^^ (Aug 12th 2004) but Lewskinslayer beat me to it by a mere two hours!

I zoned into La Theine Plateu last night and I happened upon the "Goblin's Footsteps"... I'd heard of the Goblin Archaeologist NM and wondered why the footsteps were so far from the Crag. I figured that I may as well take a shot at him for kicks (even at LV31)... so I fed the footsteps a crystal and out pops a Goblin that wants to be friends. Imagine my surprise! The only cutscene I could replay was the moment I freed Carbuncle from the stone circle in order to complete the Summoner Flag quest, though.

Edit: I dunno how to spell and I felt I should include the name of the man who posted this info first (even if it was only by a mere couple of hours...)

Actually... The goblin foot prints are ways to see cut scenes in a zone that you've seen a cut scene in. To do this, you simply feed them an item (any item, I believe) and you can replay a cut scene. You can tell if you've had a cut scene by "examining" these foot prints. If they say something about items, then you can replay a cut scene. If they say "Nothing is out of the ordinary" or something of the like, then there are no cut scenes that can be replayed.

The entrance to dynamus that you're speaking of are "Trail Markings" and they can be seen in all of the cities, as well as two other zones (Xarcabard and one other I can't remember off of the top of my head.)
??? near crag

Today i found a ??? right next to the crag of Holla. when i checked it, it said to give it everything in my bag. I tried to give it everything I had, and it refused everything except for a water crystal. When i gave it a water crystal it said "Gimme more" which i tried to do but it would not take any more crystals after that. A friend came and he tried some things and it took a spool of thread from him. Does anyone know what this is or what items you are supposed to give it? I think its new from the latest update.

I saw it too last night. We got a party together and tried giving it more items and it got closer and closer to the surface. At first it would say "gimme more" saying you hear something extremely deep below the surface. Each item you give it brings it closer to the surface. We could only get it to say "extremely close to the surface" I tried giving it a lot of things personally but it would only take a wind and earth crystal from me. Someone got it to take sheep meat. I'm assuming it will only take certain items, and after a certain number of items are taken, it will show itself. SOmeone in the party kept saying it was a NM goblin but I have no idea.

Notorious Monster. It just means the monster is special. Either it drops something wicked cool or you have to kill the specific monster for a quest or both.

Where exactly is Hora rock? I wanna do the quest to get the cotton cape, but I have no idea where the npc is to complete it.
RE: Hora Rock?

It's called the "Crag of Holla."

The NPC is located on the East side of the Hora in K-8. He's pretty huged to it, so you might miss him if you go through it quickly.

I made the mistake of attacking this guy today. As a 41 bst I was being hit for 150'ish with crits in the 190s. He also summons you to him if you try to run away. Fun, fun.

Try the Old lady near the Fountain in San d'Oria North. I bought a mess of them and forget where what came from. Even a Map of Davoi for 3 grand.

Anyone know of some sort of cave entrance in this area?
RE: Caves of O...something
# Nov 06 2003 at 3:10 PM Rating: Decent

"In that valley" according to the NPC Galaihaurat.

Nice little dangerous cave complex. Needed for San d'Oria Mission... 2-1 was it? and the V.E.R.M.I.N. quest... though the vermin quest must be yet another "handed out too soon" quest.

HTH ^-^
