Why can't into the Broken Sands?

  1. "A fierce sandstorm prevents your advance."
    How do I get past this sandstorm? And I'm really surprised no one on the internet seems to have had this problem!

Accepted Answer

  1. You cannot advance into Broken Sands until after completing Raithwall.

    If you have completed Raithwall, then either go to Estersands/South Bank Village and complete the Ferry quest which gives you access to North Bank Village or the windvane quest(you will have to defeat the Boss Earth Tyrant).

    You can also gain access to Broken Sands by completing the July quest (also after Raithwall) and riding the chocobo into Morsphoran Highwaste/Bubbling Vale were you can purchase Thief's Cuffs, Golden Armlets, etc.

    Once you defeat the Earth Tyrant, sandstorms are much harder to spawn, so it is wise to steal the Gnome Halcyon and defeat the Gnome Entite before completing the windvane quest.

  1. there's a bangaa named Rimzat at the westgate of Rabanastre, you have to talk to him to begin a sidequest to be able to enter the sandstorm
    from there you have to:
    1. talk to Cotze in the center plaza of Rabanastre
    2. talk to Northon near Storehouse 5 in the North Sprawl of Lowtown
    3. head in to the westersand and find the object necessary to enter the sandstorm
    4. after finding the object, head back to westgate and talk to Rimzat

    When you're finished with this, you will obtain the windvane, and gain the ability to enter the sandstorm
    What's in there is up to you to find out...
