Desert Dilemma?

  1. Where do I find this "sand bird" or whatever it is that is causing the quicksand in the desert on Planet Roak?

    I've been scouring the desert and can't seem to find it....

  1. Yes, you must first beat Tamiel at the Purgatoreum then talk to the old man in Tropp.

    1. Find and kill the giant bird near the oasis closest to Tatroi/Astral
    2. Return to Tropp and talk to the old man.
    3. Return to the oasis and talk to the old man, who asks you to kill it again
    4. Kill it again, I found it SW of where the old man is standing
    5. Talk to the old man again
    6. Go to the Tatroi Inn to talk to the old man yet again and complete the quest.

    The Sand Bird has 94798 HP and resistance to wind and earth. Once this quest is done, you can finally complete the Missing Brother quest and if you've completed the Ruddle quests, he'll open up a nice little shop on the left as you enter Tatroi.

  1. Well I never came across a bird that was controlling them I just tracked down one of those pink rabbits to get across there. If you want more detail ask. But to my knowledge no bird.

  2. I found him in the area west of Taotari (sp?) just to the left of the oasis near the middle, it seems like he travels around that area

  3. Yeah, me too. I was coming back from Tropp and found him right after I entered the big desert area west of Taotari(?)-- I believe you must first kill the boss on this planet before the bird will show. Once you kill it(looks kinda like a phoenix) the quicksand will disappear... but only until you leave the area then it comes back(like go to town then go back)
