During the Crystal War in the history of Vana'diel in Final Fantasy XI, a number of smart bombs were designed by Adelheid Sturm to cripple the forces of the Beastmen Confederate. These levitating bombs known as "tubes", detonate after a set amount of time when a target is close. Each tube releases an area of effect "blast" that inflicts targets with a status ailment.
Numerous tubes have been stolen from Bastok by Quadav during the many raids against Grauberg. They have shared their stolen goods with the goblins, who reverse-engineered them, creating potent poison-inducing vials and flasks. The goblins in turn sold a number of these vials and flasks to the Orcish Hosts.
