The mound of dirt in Red Stone Run

 [Rolo's Riddle] is found in any random pile of Glinting Sand on the beaches or the seafloor surrounding Timeless Isle. Loot them until the riddle is contained within.

The quest map covers the entire southeastern portion of the isle from Old Pi'jiu and Mossgreen Lake through the Red Stone Run, Firewalker Ruins, and the Croaking Hollow, so it doesn't help too much.

At the southwestern end of the Red Stone Run are four circular pillars in decreasing height leading from the Firewalker Ruins to a Gleaming Treasure Chest on top of the fourth pillar. At the base of that pillar at [49.4, 69.4] near the tree is a Mound of Dirt. The quest will not complete until players are within a few yards of it.
