Sunstones in the Giza Plains
The Sunstone side quest is an extremely easy side quest that can be completed anytime after the team has escaped from the Dreadnought Leviathan, but it cannot be completed if it is raining in the Giza Plains. Check out the “Raining in the Giza Plains” side quest page for more information if you have run into this problem.
Travel south from Rabanastre through the Giza Plains and back towards the Nomad Village. Speak to Masyua again and ask her to tell you more about Sunstones. She will ask you if you are interested in making some Sunstones to which you need to reply: “Sure, why not?”.
Masyua will give you a Shadestone and ask you to fill it with the light of the dark crystals and to return to her once it has turned into a Sunstone. She will mention that she pays more for “high grade” Sunstones – what she is hinting at is that she will give you a better reward the faster you are able to charge the stone and complete the quest.
Two of the Dark Crystals are pointed out on the map for you, but there are two more that are not pointed out on the map. One is located in the northwest area of the plains in an area called the Warrior’s Wash (use the map to help you find it). The fourth and final stone is located in the southeastern section of the map in the Gizas South Bank.
The reward you receive from Masyua depends on how fast you fill the Sunstone:
- Less than 7 minutes: 200 gil, 2 Potions and a Holy Stone
- Between 7 and 14 minutes: 150 gil and a Holy Stone
- Between 15 and 35 minutes: 100 gil
- Over 35 minutes: 50 gil
You can complete this side quest as many times as you would like, but the rewards are fairly mediocre compared to the time investment, so don’t spend too much time here.
