Confirmed fame and rank...

I activated this quest with level 3 fame and rank 2 (I am San D'Orian). I see a lot of people have posted that you need level 4 fame, but it seems this wasn't the case for me.
A good tip on getting this

I've got a few good tips for all of you who want to get ahold of this scroll without paying the ridiculous price it's going for on AH.


Since it's only obtained through the quest in Bostaunieux, you'll need to raise your fame level to 4. Some people say they have different levels of fame needed for this, but I've confirmed on several characters, it is in fact level 4, the same level needed to obtain the teleport scroll quests.


Some people will recommend different things for raising your fame to level 4. I can tell you the best way is to trade in 5-10 stacks of boyahda moss to the NPC in selbina. It may seem expensive to do so but it is well worth it for the reason it opens up so many other quests you need level 4 fame for not only in sandy, but also bastok, mhaura, selbina, rabao, kazham, and jeuno. My advice is to buy the moss only if the stacks are going for 7-11k. If they're going for any higher it's best to wait until the price drops before doing this. The loss is too great if you spend any more then 11k for a stack. If you're spending between 7-11k a stack, you'll get most of the gil you spent on the moss back while you're trading them to the NPC.


I've found in just 1 day, I can raise the gil needed to afford 5-10 stacks. That's with a job as low as level 12 farming silk thread from crawlers in sarutabaruta. If you're from bastok and don't wish to travel to the windy regions you can take the alternative and farm beehive chips from the bees atop the mountain in north gustaberg. Once you've traded in 5-10 stacks, your fame for sandy will be level 4.


The other requirement to recieving this quest is to be either rank 2 if you're from sandy, or be to at least mission 2-3 if you're from either windy or bastok to enter the chateau. If you're not from sandy, it's very easy getting up to mission 2-3 in any city. The missions are pretty simple and can be soloed pretty easily. If you're from windy or bastok, my advice is to open mission 2-3 and choose to visit sandy first so you can enter the chateau. Otherwise, you'll need to complete bastok's part of the mission before you'll be aloud into the chateau. Once you've gained access into the chateau, before continuing with the mission, enter bostaunieux and recieve the quest from the NPC.


All you'll need is 1 vial of beastmen's blood which can be bought from the AH. The price varies, but can be a little expensive. I've heard of the price ranging from 4k-20k a vial depending on your World's economy. Whatever the price, raise the gil and buy one. It's much better then taking the only alternative -buying drain from the AH.


In the end, you'll be happy you put the time into getting this scroll. It's not a total necessity, but it's one of the most useful scrolls for a BLM or DRK in many situations. This is just one of those spells it's best to get ASAP.

Ok first of all if ure a low lv and need the money ot the Scroll just get lv 7 go to King Ronfaures tomb kill Bats and take them back to Seconiad in Northern Sandoria, it's really an easy quest you can also just buy the Beastman Blood.

When i was around lv 10 or so... i had done this quest and i figured with the character i wouldn't need it and i was of course correct, so i sold it for 20k and now i look at how high prices have gotten. 70-100k for a Lv 10 DRK Lv 12 BLM Scroll... its not worth almost a fraction of that until like lv 35+ when drain actually... well Drains... at 12 it steals like 22 hp oh goodie... but later it can steal 200 but its still quite a bit for most people. i made a tarutaru... BLM and i knew that Sandoria holds the quest for it, im also aware that to enter Chato you need to be Rank2 (san) or Rank 3 (Others) so i was sandorian. (of course i would have been anyway because San d'Oria is the best as it be) but what about the other new players. its hard for someone to start the game with such high prices and never really get to the point of liking it because its so bad. and revolves around how much money you can claim or how long you want to stand around waiting for a monster that most times you won't get and most times won't even get its special item.

RE: 70-100k
# Jul 15 2005 at 1:24 PM Rating: Decent
Feel you on this one. The inflation situation is pretty crazy. But by the same token, the prices of almost everything has gone up, including farmable goods.

Using this example as related to my server. Drain is about 70-80k atm. But beehive chips are 10k a stack. As a low level char. (< 10) farming 7-8 stacks of beehive chips won't be that painful, and you'll get some exp/levels in the process.

I do agree though, seeing those kinds of prices as a player starting out can be daunting.

Can someone *please* nail down the exact conditions you need to fulfill before you can do this quest, including getting into the chateau? I'm asking this because the scroll costs 50+ K in the auction house and I don't have that kind of gil to throw around.

As for myself, there are these potentially relevant factors -

Windy allegiance, mission rank 2 {I need to finish the Lost for Words mission}

Sandy fame: 3 {people say good things about you}

Messed up the recept delivery quest.

Experience level: 9

Is it possible that those with non-San d'Orian allegiance need higher fame than natives?

Correction to the reply on your post:
You need:
Rank 2 Sandy, otherwise Rank 3 (bastok and windy) to get into the chateau.
Rank 3 Fame to get the quest active.
1 vial of beastmen blood to recieve the scroll after the above conditions have been satisfied.
There is no minimum level, I just got this with my lv 1 mule today with the help of some kind friends.

I restarted my a new character, I have rank 2, im bastonian. I gave several stacks of Flint stones, Rabit hides, did the squires quest, the fliers quest, the medicine quest, and I still get thrown out of the castle. Now My question is, do you also have to unlock the cutscene doing Emissionary Mission to get into the place at all, or you just need fame? I understand you can still be rank 2, but im not certain if you can enter before the cutscene. [/Black][Black]

If you are not from Sandy. You must activate mission 2-3 and then talk to the ambassador(sp?) in Sandy before you can enter the Chateau.

Also I would just buy the beastmans blood if you want to finish this quest with in a day. Me and a friend of mine, both thf with TH hunted leeches for 4 hours and never got a drop.

Ok, everybody is obviously confused with this scroll... First of all:

This scroll is not for San d'Orian residents only!

the quest has two stipulations, 1) you must have enough fame to get the quest, like almost every other quest in the game... 2) YOU MUST BE RANK 2! Not Rank 2 in Sandy, just Rank 2 period. The NPC that gives you the quest is in the Chateau, which you CANNOT enter unless you are Rank 2.

You don't have to be on mission 2-3... and it doesn't matter what country you are from. Since most people from Bastok and almost everyone from Windy will be Rank 2 before they even think about traveling to Sandy... it shouldn't be a big deal.

As for getting easy fame... others have posted the only ways, Bat Wing or Rabbit Hide quests or the Selbina Quest (Cabbage, Corn, or Moss).

Wow.. My scroll just sold for 30k on Bahamut, I'm going to consider myself lucky. Its selling for double what some of the other servers are getting lol.
Anyway if you want to know about getting the fame for it, what I did was get 60 stacks of million corn (20 at a time) from the Grocery Store in South Sandy. It requires about 10k gil to get all the corn to begin with but you gain most of it back from the 120 gil you get for each set of 3 corns. I had level 1 or 2 fame and I could buy corn for 47 gil meaning that I only lost 21 gil each time I turned 3 million corn in. Also the price will go down 1 or 2 gil each time you complete 20 stacks (I ended at 44 gil each)
What you need to do is take all this corn to Selbina and give it to the guy in front of the Weaving Guild. Give the corns to him 3 at a time (I know its long and tedious, and he can't talk well, but its worth it).
Just go back and forth between Sandy 3 times with 20 stacks of corn each time and you will have TONS of fame. I went from level 1 or 2 like I said all the way up to "Your reputation is stellar and I look forward to better things" I'm pretty sure thats pretty high up there, but I'm not possitive about its level.
The only problem about this method is that if Sandy is in 3rd in conquest, then corn will not be sold in the Grocery Store. Just wait til Sandy conquors some places. This method is pretty much the easiest way to get fame in Sandy and Bastok (and as a result in Jeuno) and its helpful for more than just Drain, so try it out!

Easy Bastok/Sandy Fame
# Oct 12 2004 at 12:43 PM Rating: Decent

I tried this last night. I wanted to raise my Bastok fame (was at lvl 6) and try to cap it. On my server, Bastok currently owns the dunes (and also La Thiene). From the regional vendor in Port Bastok, I was able to buy the cabbage for 21gil/head and turn it in in Selbina (only the best quest) for 20gil/head.

Even with very low fame, the cabbage would have been about 24gil/head. Still not a huge cost.

Very little money lost. I found that 20 stacks of cabbage turned in will raise your fame in both Sandy and Bastok 1 level (approx). So, for about 4K in total expenses, I was able to max my fame in both Sandy and Bastok. I am a hero to the people of sandy, and I have only done about 6 actual quests in that town.

I should admit that I was able to do this quest before I started with the cabbage, but the principle is the same.

Having zero fame in Sandy (as Mobius) I tried my own formula for fame. Not really my own, more of a variation of whats been posted thus far. I took 4 1/2 stacks of batwings to Sandy. I already had 1 stack of rabbit hides, and 6 stacks of flint stones. So, I give my rabbit hides to the guy in s. sandy (sorry forget name, he's in front of tanners guild) then I did my 4 1/2 stacks of wings. I go see the fellow in the pub, and I have a fame of "Mobius? No, I've never heard that name before...." lol. So, I give my flint stones to the guy at the fire in the pub, and then go back. He says the same thing. So I goto the AH and buy 3 more sets of wings. After I do it, and check my fame at the pub: "Ahhh yes, Mobius! You're deeds have brought you great honor....." or whatever to the effect of that. It was late, and I was uber tired. I only lost about 2k on this, which isn't a real big deal, seeing I got Drain. You will lose money if you buy the flints stones. He gives 100gil for 4 stones. If you bought a stack for 600 gil, u just lost 300 gil. I'd do the bat wings....as long as they are 2200 gil or less in AH. You stand to make a little gil if they are selling for 2k a stack....Oh, and I'm using Drain and not selling it >.< Ima nuken Mobius

Dunno if anyone thought of this but, if you are willing to spend some extra time to make a second char, or if you already have one, just do the quest for both chars. Then, if you have a char planning on being DRK, you can have the scroll, and an insanley amount of gil all for a lowly vial of beastmen blood. What I'm saying is, make a mule, spend a few hours with it to get the mission going, do the quest, then do it for your other char. You guys get what I'm saying. :)

Unless you have a couple friends to help you get rank 2 in sandy, it is more effort to get the ~40K than its worth. Its took me about 1 hour to get the rank, and the fame, well... that all depends on how efficient you are with farming. And keep in mind, people started doing this with utsusemi: ichi in the past few months, and dropped the price of the scroll from 300K to 200K. All that trouble may eventually be for nothing.

Getting Drain - THE FACTS
# Feb 27 2004 at 1:50 PM Rating: Good
Well... to get into the Chateau you need to be doing the Three Kindoms Mission (rank 2-3) at the point where you need to go talk to Halver in the Chateau (this is if you are from windy)

For Fame i did the Flint Stones quest - nice since the guy that you check fame with is in the same room, but with 0 fame it took me 15 stacks of flint stones to get to famous at 800 gil per stack but you get gil per turn in. The bat wing quest may give more fame.

For the amount of HP Drained - at level 25 with max skill i drained up to 92HP - it depends on your skill in that type of magic which depends on your level. Always keep your magic skills maxed as best you can - even if you gotta sit around a bit and chain cast on yourself. Believe me it wont hurt - dont wanna be high level and using magic skills of a low level then trying to sit around to raise em up that much - max em at every level.

not sure if the previous guy meant to say "drain 6-8 MP", but the drain is for HP. As i lvl my sub whm, i wish the blm would have the drain so i can focus my mp on healing the tanks. My experience is that is drains 8-90HP from a mob at lv 20, that makes a huge difference in party. with blm with drain, we can chain lot longer only having to heal the tanks.

for clarification:

Fame: I bought 5 stacks of Bat Wings from Windurst AH at 1.3-1.5k a stack, rode to sandy, traded 2 ata time. walked into the oubliette and got quest. lost ~1k in all that) went to AH bought the blood for 1.3k traded, got scroll.

Now despite the name of the area there are NO mobs you need to kill (other than for the blood you need. or ust buy it) the Basteunoux Oubliette(sp) is simply the prison inside chetau de' orgell<sp> no bad guys down there, just the guy for part of DRG quest, one other quest I cant remember and the Drain Scroll quest. took me all of 2 minutes to get scroll and costed me ~3k in the end. ;)

I just checked Bastok's AH on Midgard, it's 13k there, but I'll just wait 'till level 35-ish to get it.

Avoiding Aggro isn't that hard, only difficult part is going through the tunnels in Valkurm Dunes, and thats if you're comming from Bastok.

No monsters down there, but you'll need to be on the San d'Oria part of mission 2-3 before you can get into the Chateau, unless you are from San d'Oria, in which case you just have to be Rank 2 to get in.

i just bought it in sandoria for 15,000 gill cause i couldnt find the guy but its not worth it till you get about 35 im thinking. im 18 and it only drains about 4-8mp. the wait time to use again is 60 secs. my dark magic is about 41 also. could be a good item for higher lvls but save ur money and get blizzard if your low lvl like me.

You can get the scroll from some guy in the dungeon in San D'oria Chateau for a vial of beastblood. You need some fame to get the request for the blood but I sold the scroll in Jueno on the Diabolos server for 23000 gil. Pretty Nice.

In Bastok AH on Midgardsormr this scroll currently sells for about 15k gil, and is in short supply so the price may be on the rise.
