Somewhere deep within this enormous expanse of catacombs lie the remains of the 24th heir to the throne of San d'Oria: Ranperre, the Dragon King. It is said that the king--who was a dragonslayer--had entrusted the protection of the tomb to a black dragon that had been spared in exchange for its services.

Does the chest spawn all over the tomb or just in the area around the mobs that drop the key (i.e. nachzehrers/tomb bats). Alternatively, anyone know where I can get a map of the chest locations?

can someone tell me where i can get a map of this tomb?im from sandoria.
RE: map?
# Jul 10 2004 at 9:32 PM Rating: Decent
To get the map for King Ronperre's Tomb you have to do a quest called "Exit The Gamber" Check the quests for San D'Oria on this site, it will let you know what to do.

Apparantly, the mobs here go up to level 82 according to my strategy guide.

I-10. Envision the bottom section spit in two even parts by a vertical line, it's in the center of the eastern half. The listing for the Spook has a more detailed map.

The ???
# Apr 02 2004 at 10:27 AM Rating: Excellent
As many have mentioned, venturing in to the hidden area of the tomb (beyond the ???) is quite dangerous. Immediately upon entering, there are bats and goblins, which are good exp at level 50.

Even further in, however, are undead (skeletons, ghosts, and wolves) that are good exp (read: tough/very tough/incredibly tough) at levels 71-73. In other words, this place is nasty.

map acquisition???
# Mar 07 2004 at 2:29 PM Rating: Default
who sells the map for this place?
RE: map acquisition???
# Mar 07 2004 at 7:23 PM Rating: Default
You can't buy it. You have to do the Daybreak Gambler quest in Northern Sandoria and the map is your reward. Talk to the 2 NPC's standing next to the Port entrance in the woodworking yard. They ask you to locate a slacker named Varchet. He is in Southern Sandoria next to the fountain near the residential area entrance. Gamble with him, beat him, then go talk to the first to NPC's to obtain the map. Hope this helps.

i was in here the other day doing a stunt while waiting for the NMs to spawn.. I start at one of the inner cave enterances(cave with crypt ghost and goblin gruel) I Dia a bat and run through almost the whole cave linking all the bats where I will banishga them to death.. well while doing that a few weeks ago, i was killed by a skeleton monster named Corrupted Yagoros.. it hit my lv 37 whm(at the time) for 268 each and then I died before I could check it... I have yet to see it again, anyone know what this is?
RE: corrupted yagoros
# Apr 02 2004 at 10:32 AM Rating: Excellent
Corrupted Yagoros is a triggered NM (one of three) for San d'Oria Mission 6-2. It takes a full LV 60 party to kill him comfortably. It sounds like someone triggered the NMs (possibly without realizing that they were going to), and promptly warped or died.

The chest has many different spawn points all around. This is a really nice level to farm in. The chest contains nice gloves for a samuri. Other than that, I believe all it contains is gil.

I've got the orcish scales for San d'Oria mission 2 but when I trade them to the gate guard he says "have you really been in the tomb?". What is it I need to do to complete the quest?

Talk to the tomb stone itself (to trigger a cut sequence). It took me a while to figure it out....

Im just wandering if htis false tomb w/ lvl 50+ monsters is a new edition they put in, b/c i have the strategy guide by BradyGames, and it mentions only lvl 10 bats in ranperres tomb..

That would be because the people who wrote that strategy guide skipped half the game and didn't ask anybody who had been playing for longer than a year.

It's been there for a long time, but since BradyGames assumed the NA market would never get there, they just skipped it.
Funnel Bats
# Jan 03 2004 at 4:17 AM Rating: Default
If you go to the "false" King's Tomb area where there is a telepoint with a ??? and you go down- you encounter Funnel Bats and Goblin Bouncers. This place is Lv 50+!
I went there with my Bard Lv 50 and they were tough. As we went on further we came across Armor Beetles and they were Incredibly Tough.
When I mentioned this place to my Japanese friends they just gave me a really scary smiley face. Meaning-- bad bad idea. I'm assuming it's Lv 55-65 maybe? Maybe higher?

I've found the chest 3 times in the upstairs area around K7 - there are a lot of little alcoves, and it's been in them twice and once by the stairs.
The gobs up here are Gamblers and such, so be careful.
King Ranperre's Chest Key
# Dec 30 2003 at 3:37 PM Rating: Default
I obtained King Ranperre's Chest Key, which I guess means it is a key to a treasure chest somewhere in that area. Does anyone know where the chest is at?
# Dec 20 2003 at 11:54 AM Rating: Good
Don't bother hunting the NM in here unless its midday, the japanese players camp the area like crazy. I wish they would've done separate servers so we couldve started our own economy rather than the one that had been established for a year.
# Dec 05 2003 at 8:47 PM Rating: Default
I've seen the chest appear in two different places - One is where the gruel spawns and the other is where the crypt ghost spawns. I've heard there's a total of 4. Is there a time deal to this? Also, anyone know what's behind the stone door yet?
Teleporter in Tomb
# Dec 03 2003 at 1:24 PM Rating: Default
I'm not sure if anyone has noticed this but there is a teleport pad at the end of one of the various seemingly dead-end paths in the second above-ground area of the tomb. It leads down into some tunnel with Funnel Bats (strongest mob I've ever encountered), which I mistook for Ding Bats (the name says it all), thereby ending my exploration with a brutal hit for 268. I just noticed the area is not on the connection map and I was wondering if anyone has any information on this place?
RE: Teleporter in Tomb
# Dec 28 2003 at 2:03 PM Rating: Default
The funnel bats are incredibly tough at level 48, and deeper in are monsters that groups in their 70s exp on.
Upper exit on the right of the map.

Where does the upper right exit take you. I assume E. Ron, but I have no idea where that would drop me.

It opens behind that tower on the southeast (pretty sure easy, maybe west) side of E. Ron. It opens up high and you just sorta fall/slide down. Thus, it is a way out, but not a way in...

Dunno, but one of them hit my level 30 WHM for 240 damage the other day.

I'm staying away from the lower levels for a while.
