  • The Vath keeneye seems very pleased with himself.
※The difficulty of this quest will be synced to your current level.
  • The Convictors have been searching for a more potent firesand to power their newest cannons, and the Vath keeneye has taken it upon himself to solve their problem. After many tireless hours of trial and error, he has finally found the answer to their quandary; however, all these experiments have left him with no components to make more of his new blend. He asks that you go and gather some of these items and bring them back to him. Travel to Avalonia Fallen and the Smoldering Wastes to collect three branches of deadwood and three sacks of redsand.
※Please note that the difficulty of this quest has been synced to your current level. Furthermore, you may not proceed with a class or job that is different from when you accepted this quest.
  • You obtain three branches of deadwood and three sacks of redsand. Return to Loth ast Vath and deliver them to the Vath keeneye.
  • The Vath keeneye is elated to see you return with the items he has requested. In his excitement, he launches into an explanation on how his firesand is created, but stops himself when he realizes divulging the secrets of this process to you could jeopardize future sales.

Lately, the Convictors invest much of their gil in the construction of larger cannons. <click> <click> However, they are not satisfied with their performance. Not satisfied at all.

To fire a single round, three times the normal amount of firesand is required. This is far too much! We offered to help our friends find a better alternative. So, between commissions, we spent much time experimenting.

Finally, success! <click> <click> We created a new firesand mixture much more potent than the old! But there is a problem. During our research, we exhausted our supply of some essential components.

We need three bags of redsand from Avalonia Fallen and three pieces of deadwood from the Smoldering Wastes. Please, great adventurer, can you go and fetch them for us?
Quest Accepted
You have returned! <click> <click> Did you bring the redsand and deadwood?

After your long journey, you must be keen to know more about this process! You see, redsand, when combined with the charcoal produced from this deadwood in the precise ratio will─

Oh, how foolish of us! It is not our place to share such valuable secrets, even with a friend... <click> <click> We will only say that the resulting compound has the ability to increase the explosive power of firesand.

You look surprised. Why, mighty hunter, you should know best of all that ingenuity is the greatest by-product of individuality! We can accomplish much by continuing to explore the world around us and trading our newfound knowledge with your kind!
