In-Game Text


Peddlestox will only appear in Yhoator Jungle at E-8 during Lightningday. He will ask you to bring him four parts of a Tonberry lantern: Rancor Mantle, Rancor Handle, Rancor Globe, and Rancor Tank.

When you bring the items back to him he will tell you the location of your treasure. Find the ??? and use a Pickaxe and you will randomly receive a treasure item, but not necessarily the item he said you could get.

This quest was infinitely easier than the Kuzotz Region version primarily because the obligatory NM in Yhoator is a timed spawn and can be dispatched quickly without fear of links. Anyway, these quests aren't often done so if you're looking here chances are good that you're searching for information on where the items that will complete your quartet drop. I can't say for certain, but I believe that the items will only drop from the specified mobs in a given area and/or map. At least, that's how it seemed in the Quicksand Caves...

Rancor Handle: This guy. He'll most always be up unless he's killed out of boredom or curiosity by passerbys.
Rancor Mantle: Tonberry Cutter, mine dropped around H-8 on the second map (the area with coffers)
Rancor Tank: Tonberry Hexer, dropped at J-10 in Yhoator Jungle
Rancor Globe: Tonberry Harrier, dropped in H-10 of the first Ugglepih map. Much like this poor soul, I spent about 2 hours killing all the Harriers I could find in the temple (on both maps where they can be found) before getting the drop from the one Harrier in the Dragoon AF3 room. Ruling out coincidence, it's clear based on our two testimonials that he's the only Tonberry who drops this item :P

Once you've got the four items, make sure you've got a pickaxe in your inventory and head to E-8 on Lightningday and you'll find Peddlestox hanging out between the roots of a tree. Once you trade her the items and she marks up your map, head to the spot indicated, place yourself directly above it and... well... wait. For both beastman treasure quests that I've done, the ??? has been targetable only after a specific time. For this quest, I could target it at 23:30 (but not a second before) and didn't have to move from my spot to do so.

For all the frustration and hours of farming, I obtained: 7,000 gil, a Turquoise, a Bag of Tree Cuttings, a Silver Beastcoin, a Platinum Nugget and- thankfully- the Bitter Earring for a grand sum of ~212k. These are fun quests, and you can usually make a decent amount of gil if the "big", never-sells-on-AH item drops, but they definitely require a lot of patience and farming.
Use the Pickaxe

The weirdest thing happened when I did the quest... I tried looking for the Treasure but couldn't target the ???... Then, when I got pissed enough, my bf (thanks sweets) told me to use the pickaxe when I was standing on the marked spot on the map. When I did so, I scanned through what the pickaxe could be used on, and BAM!, the ??? was right where it should have been all along! And I got myself a Bitter Earring ^.^

So if it happens to you, it'll give you another trick to try!

GL everyone that tries this quest, and don't bother farming the items unless you're only missing one, they take waaaaaaayyyyyy too long to gather up!
not being able to target ???

Windower or other programs may effect you not being able to find the mining spot given. My friend ran into this problem when she was doing the mermaid quest and she found it np without being on windower but couldnt find it anywhere while on it. Hope this helps any that are confused.

I agree with you. Did the quest just to be able to bar if off the list of ToDo items Smiley: smile. But for all the effort and time I spent doing it, my reward was a beastman seal, a green rock, a bag of grain seeds and a mytrhil beastcoin. LMAO! Way to go SE!
Bitter Earring

This says the treasure is "Random". Is there a way to make sure you get a Bitter Earring? A certain Day or time perhaps? Like somone said in another post, it would suck to get a silver beastcoin.

The one you saw was for a different quest. That the elshimo lowlands one, which requires you to get 4 pieces of a mermaid statue from various sahagins.

Does anyone know if you can obtain the 3 rare/ex items only on the day the quest is given? Besides the 1 the NM drops in Yhoator. Or can they be obtained if the quest isnt flagged?

You can obtain them any time. Now I'm trying to find the ??? to mine up my item. It's not where the map marker is.
99 BLM / 99 BRD / 99 MNK / 99 WAR / 95 NPC

Just finished this quest and wanted to share my experience in looking for the ??? for anyong having trouble locating it. Go to the spot marked on your map by the goblin NPC and as mentioned before, bring a pickaxe.
When you arrive near the spot, walk, don't run, and try to auto target anything around you. The ??? only appears if you're standing within a certain proximity to it, so if you're running around and targeting, you're likely to not even see it at all. Once you're able to target it, stop moving, walk over to it and pick away.
Hope this helps.
not just in yhoator

Okay I also saw this guy in Western Altepa Desert at (L-7) during Earthsday, there were two weather icons at that time.

I got a picture to prove it too.
Too much work?

I sure hope that the list of possible rewards isn't fully compiled yet.

because I feel really bad for the person that found the Silver Beastcoin.

It is like the Mermaid Ring quests, there are several quests like this scattered around various areas.
