Notes For the weight trigger doors you need at least one of these combinations: 1 Galka, 2 Hume/Elvaan/Mithra, 3 Tarutarus, 1 Tarutaru + 1 Hume/Elvaan/Mithra (NPC will not work on the weight pads), or complete the quest Open Sesame.

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...
