???

These marks can be found all across Vana'diel in varying locations. They don't share any common purpose; they are just special "hidden" spots that are used for quests or missions, or as spawn points for Notorious Monsters. Sometimes you will need to trade a specific item to the ???, and other times you will only need to check it.

But beware: It may not be wise to randomly check any ??? that you come across. Some will spawn difficult monsters that you may not be ready to take on! But of course...if there's a button, there aren't many who can resist testing it...
