Notes For the weight trigger doors, you need players with a combined weight value of 3 or higher to stand on the pad in order to open the door (Galka = 3 units, Hume/Elvaan/Mithra = 2 units, Tarutaru = 1 unit) (NPCs do not work on the weight pads)

Alternatively, complete Open Sesame to receive a KeyItemLoadstone and open these doors instantly without meeting the weight requirement.

Description

Once a thriving metropolis for the proud Galka, these caves still house numerous monolithic pillars and statues that, in many places, remain untouched by the sands of time. However, long ago, the Antica drove the Galka from their homes, and the tunnels were transformed into a giant nest. As a result of the constant digging of entrances and exits by the insect-like beings, the caves are relentlessly bombarded with a flow of sand from the desert above. It will not be long before the caves are completely filled and a piece of Galkan history is lost forever. However, this is of no concern to the Antica...
