How to Complete A Burning Curiosity, Part 2 Standard Quest
Ymeer is still tinkering with the Agnian Levnis and is having some problems. However, an idea dawned on him and he needs your help securing some more Levnis parts, specifically from one called a Mechapod Carthegia. He mentions it’s been sighted at the Lavi Sandbar in Cadensia, so that is where you need to go. If you forgot where that is, it’s the large island to the north of Thurbin Island. There are many entry points on the Lavi Sandbar, but you will want to dock on the northern side of it. The closest landmark, should you have done a lot of exploration, is the Third Pillar Remnant.
There are level 60+ enemies on this island, even in the area you need to traverse, with some of them popping out of the ground when you get close enough, so be careful. The Mechapod Carthegia is up the hill and to the west from the previously mentioned landmark. It will be accompanied by three Agnus Medics, so you will definitely want to get rid of them first. The Medics are level 49, while the Mechapod Carthegia is level 50. Overall, the battle shouldn’t be too difficult, although the Levnis has a skill where it goes underground to deal some AoE damage in front of it.
Upon defeating the Mechapod Carthegia, return to Ymeer at Colony 4 to finish the quest.
