I JUST did exactly that. Killed one of those damn bats for killing me back when I leveled in dunes. Just got the drop, so I guess I'll cash in that quest now for a bit of bastok fame.

I really need to get my Bastok fame to decent level, so I thought I would try this quest. As I really dont feel like running through Valkurm, I decided to just buy the fangs in Bastok.

Price of a stack of Sand Bat fangs, on Hades=60k. Last one sold for 100k. That's pretty expensive for something that drops so easily. I had just been tossing the fangs up until now...

someone mentioned this but you have yet to change it. this quest is repeatable, at least he says he will pay you for more so i assume it is.

The guy might give you 350gil everytime you do this quest, but on Bismarck these fangs are worth 1k at Ah... Do the maths!

I think this is better more for the fame rather than the money. We all know that its not that easy to make money.

Zinc is good for Norg fame, but has no Bastok fame value.

Zinc also lowers Bastok fame as does necklaces in windy and smuggling quests.

How tough they are to you is relative to your current class and level. At level 23 when I did this quest, the bats were not hard...they are rated lvl 12-15 on this site, but you still have to watch out for gobs. On the highlands side of the tunnel, the gobs are usually from lvl 18-20, while on the other side of the tunnel the gobs are anywhere from lvl 23-30. At lvl 28, the gobs in the central part of Valkurm still con DC to EM to me. You can look up on this site what other mobs you can expect to find in Valkurm. Also, be aware that the sand bats do aggro. Hope this helps, and good luck!

If I'm not mistaken this mission is repeatable... you might want to mention that!

items required says "bat fang" i tried to purchase a few and trade to him, but didnt work. Does it have to be "sand bat fang"? how many does he need?
RE: bat

You're right -- this should be SAND bat fang, not just bat fang.

This quest is called "Bite the Dust"
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 06 2003 at 3:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Thank you for stating the quest's name. Its important that you post a message stating the quest's name.

Thank you for stating the quest's name. Its important that you post a message stating the quest's name.

Actually it is important, because before he posted that info, the administrators on this site had labeled this quest as Sand Bats (or something similar.) That post was to let them know they need to fix it. Now that it's fixed, the post still remains. No need to be sarcastic or start useless flaming on users posts, because in doing so, you have proven your own ignorance on the subject.

Even so, I laughed when I read the sarcastic comment. ...and in the end, isn't that what it's all about? laughter? Excitement? Fun?
