Quicksand Caves


  • Lottery spawn from the Antican Signifer.
  • Place Holder Antican Signifer respawns every 16 minutes.
  • Is a true lottery, so any spawn opportunity is only a possibility and never a guarantee.
  • Said to have respawn time of 2 up till 2½ hours. (Observed as low as 1 to 1½ hours and as high as 10 hours.)
  • Located at: Enter Quicksand Caves from Eastern Altepa Desert at K-7; found at H-9 to H-10 on that map.
  • Drops around 3000 gil
  • Item Drops: Shaman's Cloak is not a guaranteed drop.
  • Killable by: 4 characters level 55; 2 characters level 64-66; solo as a RDM/NIN at level 60; Easily soloable by level 75 SMN or 75 MNK/NIN
  • Very resistant to Silence, if not immune (Elemental Seal as WHM did not stick with capped Enfeebling Magic)
  • Spells are very hard to interrupt. (The mob took five melee hits, plus a Hexa Strike, and still cast Freeze successfully)
  • Special Attacks: Manafont
  • Susceptible to Chaotic Eye (Silence) (though it seems to not last long), making it killable by a BLU/THF around 64. Zephyr Mantle, Head Butt (or any stun spell to stop AM and high tier black magic), Magic Fruit and MP Drainkiss help tons, as does having an Auto-Refresh set. Make sure to have Echo Drops in case of Jamming Wave and a Yagudo Drink or 2. (I was 68 when I did this, but it popped while healing and I had less than 150MP, but I won with less than 50HP and no MP.)

Historical Background
