Secret of the Crystal Bones

Gathering Quest: Deliver 4 Crystal Bones

Reward: 600z
Contract: 100z

Time: 50 min.
Area: Sandy Plains

Subquest A: Slay 4 Giggi
Reward: 200z

Buy five Iron Pickaxes from the market before setting out on this one. Crystal Bones can be mined from the ore deposits in Areas 6 and 11. Remember to grab the Torch along with the Map and Rations from the Supply Box.

The only way to get to Area 11 is to drop down from the cliff along the west end of Area 10. When in the desert areas -- Areas 8, 9 and 10 -- you'll need to drink either a Cool Drink or a Hot Drink to counteract the negative effect caused by the extreme heat or extreme cold. If it's night, drink a Hot Drink to keep warm. A cold hunter's stamina bar deteriorates more rapidly than default. If it's day, drink a Cool Drink. Overheated hunters gradually lose health.

Mine for Crystal Bones in Areas 6 and 11.

Completing the subquest requires killing four Giggi. Giggi are the small, slug-like creatures that will latch onto you and sap your health if you give them the chance. There are Giggi in Areas 7 and 6.

Return to Base Camp once you've mined four Crystal Bones and deposit them in the Delivery Box to complete the quest.
