I accidently dropped it a year ago. Sooooo, I gave it another attempt. I went onto the ship and camped through three pirate spawns. That's about 30 or more pirates. I still can't get the charm. I just hope I can get it otherwise I'll have to party up with someone. not everyone is interested in doing that though.

I just tried to get the Sand Charm drop for a few hours today. After waiting for the pirate ship to show, one did. I killed a few of the pirate skeletons, only to the disappointment of no drop. I get tired of waiting/trying, and decide to log for a few hours. I come back, and the ship is about to arrive. I get on, and have the feeling I'm going to be seeing the pirate ship, again. About 4 minutes after leaving dock, I see a ship in the mist. I shout "PIRATES!" and all the fisherman aboard start gathering. I take down 2, with no drop. Then, I get an invite.

The fisherman had allied, and started a party, and invited me. As soon as I join in, someone tells me to lot for the Sand Charm. They had received 2 drops, and decided to give one to me, because I had mentioned I needed it for the quest (and by mentioned, I mean I kept saying "SAND CHARM, SAND CHARM", hehe).

So, in full gratitude, I have to give a shout to: Bonsai, Febion, Kdizzle, Levania, and Shayna. Thank you, guys!

If not for them, I don't know how long it would have taken me to get that thing!
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."
I'm Grateful-wateful!

I have been on the ferry for hours now and have been playing since 2005 and have never seen a pirate attack until just now. I was like "wtf? why is there another ship." I thought it might be the ship for Aht Urghan until I noticed it getting closer to us. Then a bunch of wights got on board and nobody moved to fight em so I killed a couple.

I got the message "you received a sand charm" and was wondering what it was. Turns out it isn't exactly easy to get. LOL now I have to figure out what quest it is for.
sand charm

I just got the sand charm with sunny weather at night, firesday, 67% waxing gibbous. Info is for those who are trying to go after conditions. Pirates came shortly after ship took off and got drop off 2nd Crossbone kill. Hope this helps a little...

I was getting Nin AF on boat (Mhaura > Selbina) and Sea Horror popped. I was fighting Bogy type NM for AF > Sea horror popped was getting beat down (Rng + hundred Fist = OUCH) an these jerko's show up. BUT they had a present with them: BlackBeard, a NM that was owning a 75 Smn and since it was of undead type I was doing LOW damage. I recommend you watch yourself! "Run Away!"

Bostaunieux Obillette Map quest. You can tell when pirates are going to come onto the selbina-mhaura ship by seeing if the chat log appears before you can see anything when you first zone into the selbina-mhaura ship. So if you can just see the chat log and where you would see what is happening in vana'diel is all black for a second or two when you zone in, pirates are coming! Get ready to find your sand charm.

i got the Sand Charm purely on accident. i was fishing on the ship, minding my own business like most fisher-people do, when the pirates appeared. being a 45MNK/22WAR, it didn't bother me too much, until they started aggroing this low-level WHM who was catching a ride at the time. i went in to save their behind and ended up with a Sand Charm from the first (of several) crossbones killed to save the WHM's life.

come to find out, the WHM had another character she had spent hours and hours and hours (X2) getting the Sand Charm to drop, and wasn't too pleased to hear that i got it to drop on the first try. oops. :/
I owned it ^^

The pirates are fun as hell to fight^^

Except they always spawn when I am hunting the Sea Horror, I think they scare him off.

If the Crossbones only show up when it's foggy/murky, then only go on nights when it's gonna be like that (undead=nighttime only). For those of you who (like me) need a bigger hint, try this: there's a person who can predict the weather 3 days ahead in each port town. Talk to him. If you don't get the weather you want, log out and do something else for 2 hours, 52 minutes, and 48 seconds (3 game days). [25 game days per real life day]

I fought these during the daytime in murky weather. So, no, it's not only going to be nighttime.

lmao, me and my ls friends stupidly decided to go and kill Pirates at around 30(one 50).


(me)WAR 32/MNK16
WAR 31/MNK15
MNK50/WAR25<---was the one that persuaded us to go kill some pirates -__________________-;;

so one our first trip to Mhaura from Selbina, we got the pirate theme and the ship appeared. We were all saying 'yay Pirates'.....

the WAR 31 got cornered by 3 Crossbones and a Ship Wight, and went down in less than a min. She said 'damn, I'm dead lol.'

the NIN and I stuck with the MNK, who was easily killing the crossbones, and fought off some crossbones beside him too. 2 cornered me a the NIN was preoccupied with another crossbones, so went down.

so later the NIN is down to about 20 HP, so he runs off for a while, saying 'I'm not here, don't pay attention to me...' then he said ***** it, and ran into the battle and used 2 hr. It barely did any damage to the things -_-

so now the MNK is all alone and is down to about 700 hp/1020 hp and his chakra had time (previously was hunting VE and killing bogys for the hell of it, lol) so he got down to about 400 hp then he used Hundred Fists and beat the crap outta those things, lol. After the pirates were gone for a while, he used chakra and went from 200 to ~300 hp again. Then he beat up the rest of the pirates and we docked. /sigh... funny thing was we were all alone on the boat... XD so we got no raises, and we HPed except for the MNK. I'm gonna have fun when I'm a high level PLD and I go on a joyride on the boat killing Pirates... of course, won't be fun if the Sea Horror shows up >.>;; I shall have revenge on those things :P

btw, 2 sand charms only and the MNK got them cause only he could lot (we were dead.... X.x)

Had a boat party with my LS today - a nearly full alliance of LV50+ (the lowest were myself and a LV44 WHM) having fun going back and forth on the boat. We were there for nearly two hours ******** around before we got pirates, not one, but TWICE in a row. XD Between myself and the other THF on-board, Treasure Hunter and the alliance provoked a drop of about 8 Sand Charms (3 the first run, 5 or 6 the second run). Pirates were easily pwned, we all had a good time, and I now have the map for Bostaniuex Oubliette :D

I camped pirates 9 hours last night, 2 sea horrors, no pirates. I was not at all happy. They popped first trip when I logged this morning. I had to claim against a tonne of JP PLD, but still got 5. No drop.

I am now 1 for 55 on sand charm, and 0 for 1 on lots (I partied with another PLD once against them, I soloed the crossbones that dropped it, he won the lot =T). Maybe I am just being unlucky, but I want to fly over to Tokyo and ram my foot down SE's throat at the moment...
Mob Drop

I did get this on the first Crossbone I defeated. Easy as pie for a 39 WHM. It was also my first encounter with pirates at all, lucky me! :D
# Jul 24 2004 at 5:07 AM Rating: Decent
At level 40, the crossbones were easy. The hard part were the Ship Wights... ugh... they were freaking hard. I think there should be a correction, I never got a drop from a Crossbones, but by a Ship Wight. ( Note to self: Ship Wights are much harder than imagined )... -.-
got one

was on boat to selbina for manniquin(sp) quest when pirates invaded. I am 43mnk/21thf and ended up fighting like 3 crossbones and 2 wights on my own (2hr and many chakras), ended up with 50hp out of 1033, and i got it to drop off of the 2nd to last crossbones. I didnt even rmember there was a quest for the charm til i won it. I like to get maps but wish there were some monetary compensation for this too. But fame is fame!
