Wiki of Mana

Meteorite Mania is a side quest in Sword of Mana.

  • Location: Menos Village
  • Quest Availability: First Arrival in Menos - Before Entering Dime Tower
  • Item Need: Aerolites
  • Reward Get: Various

Go to the Menos General Store and speak to the child named Pancetta. Accept his offer to trade Aerolites for items. Speak with him again when you have some Aerolite and he will offer an item in return for it. He will offer one of two different items (all of which are listed below). If the item he is offering is not to your liking, then just do not accept and try again. You also cannot choose which Aerolite you want to trade. Also note that to get QUEST CLEAR all you need is to give him at least one Aerolite.

WARNING! If you already have 99 of the item he is going to trade with you, the game will freeze!

  • Jake Aerolite - Altena Felt, Fossil Wood
  • Hal Aerolite - Pegasus Hide, Fossil
  • Ankh Aerolite - Orihalcum, Dragon Scales
  • Vinek Aerolite - Crystal, Mythril Silver

So, where can you get Aerolite? You can only get them from rare monsters known as Cyclopes. There are 8 different Cyclopes in all - one representing each element. Cyclopes have only a 5% chance of appearing, but luckily, if they drop a Chest, there is a 92% chance of getting an Aerolite (and an 8% chance of getting Tough Meat).
