  • Head to Quicksand Caves through the Western Altepa Desert entrance at (D-12; in the secret zone). To get here, go to the far end of the visible map at (C-11)/(D-11), then follow the wall where you will soon enter a hidden tunnel. Beyond the tunnel you will need sneak and invisible, beware the Desert Manticore and Antican Hoplomachus check as easy prey to level 99. Keep northward to the sand slope, go down to the other end and up the broken stairs.
  • Talk to the Goblin Geologist for a short dialog indicating that he has placed markers onto your map.
  • There are nine green markers on your map spread out across the Quicksand Caves areas.
    • The markers are under the markers tab in your map view.
    • There are many ??? spots in the caves. The ones you are assigned are random.
    • The markers remain on your map until you complete the quest.
    • The markers are only available on the PC/console that is used to talk to the Goblin Geologist. However, the data can be saved to, and then loaded from the server, or copied from one machine to the other.
  • Explore the area and examine each of the ???s marked on your map.
    • Because these stones cannot be behind the weight sensors, you'll only need to check a couple of entrances to the Quicksand Caves.
  • J-9 Entrance (2) (There is a second map LOCATED AT D-11 and that takes you to another map that also has ??? markers on it. See below for ??? locations)
  • G-5 Entrance (6) will let you check two of the 8 possible maps in Quicksand Caves.
  • Entrance Numbers are based on FFXI Atlas maps.
Stone of Surya
Stone of Chandra
Stone of Mangala
Stone of Budha
Stone of Brihaspati
Stone of Shukra
Stone of Shani
Stone of Rahu
Stone of Ketu

Possible Locations

Note: There is a glitch that happens sometimes where one or more of the ???'s won't appear on the map markers making it so you have to search for them without a marker. Talking to the Goblin Geologist again may fix the problem.
