Objectives Edit

Plant one of Sambino's modified totems in the sand of Silver Tide Trench.

  • Drill Sample Taken

Description Edit

Okay, I'll let you in on the real work, since you're looking at me so desperately.

This rock is untapped! It's probably richer than a trade prince during a great war! I need samples. More samples. Samples from everywhere!

I've modified my earth totems to drill through the sand and store samples of the rock underneath. Go find a nice spot and plan one.

The shaking and rumbling will probably attract all the cute, curious wildlife, so maybe you can make some friends while you're at it.

Progress Edit

Bah! There's sand in my helmet. It itches!

Completion Edit

Another sample. Brilliant! The rocky riches of the sea shall soon be mine!

Notes Edit

Talk to Sambino before taking off. Players can ask for a [Earthbind], [Stoneclaw], [Strength of Earth], [Stoneskin] or Earth Elemental Totem. Choosing one of the first three options will give players the requested totem along with one of the following responses:

  • The Great Sambino says: Jeeze... would you like me to have Felice give you a massage while you're at it? Here, take it. Go get me my sample!
  • The Great Sambino says: Well you're a picky little <race>, aren't you? Fine. Just go get me that sample.
  • The Great Sambino says: Wait a second... who's working for who here? If I give you the new totem, will you just finish the darn task?

Asking for a Earth Elemental totem, on the other hand...

The Great Sambino says: No. Stop being greedy.

Plant the totem at least 40 yards away from any other modified totems. A few crabs and eels spawn, then finally an Enormous Sand Crab will spawn. Kill the enormous crab, which has ~92,853 HP, to complete the quest.

Sampling Successful!
