Though rice balls are a good indicator that can save time running bak and forth from Norg, they suck! I had mine at 155gil, went to Norg, couldn't get quest, so I talked to the guy who can indicate the rank from what he tells you, and I was 2 ranks away. So.....

Just to clear a few things up.

It says the quest is a min level 1 this is wrong. SE must have changed this to keep RMT from doing this quest on level 1 characters.

I took a mule to level 30 using my anniversary ring just to do this quest.

First of all I had max fame in windy and no fame anywhere else on this mule.

I traded exactly 200 yag necklaces then headed to norg. After doing the rusty armor quests I was able to flag this.

I then changed to a level 1 job and followed the walk through to get to the room with the ???.

What I needed was 7 silent oils to get there and back.

When I returned I tried to finish the quest but all I got was some gibberish from the NPC. After trying 4 times I finally figured it out.

I changed back to the level 30 job and was able to finish the quest.


To sum it up you HAVE to be on something other then a level 1 job to flag this and to finish the quest. I can't say what level is needed but a level 30 can do it now.



Hope this helps

just to clarify.

only quests i had done for norg were SAM flag quest and NIN flag quest.

traded exactly 200 necklaces to the npc and rice balls were at 154.

i hadn't done any zinc ore quests or anything.

hope this clears it up

During inflation time I decided to get fame for my mule to sell the scrolls for gil but I've gotten lazy. Well, I decided to do them now, turned in zinc ores(forgot how many) and 12 yagudo necklaces only. Did the quest in sandy where you give 3 packages to the npcs. Checked the price of riceballs, and it was 161 gil. I hoped to have enough fame and headed to norg. I did the rusty leggings + subligar + turned in 4 eastern potteries + tonko:ichi quest. That unlocked Utsusemi ichi and all the other level 4 fame quest.
Ok

I turned in exactly 200 Yagudo Necklaces. I have kept track of them all. Rice balls were at 156. I went to Norg (for the first time ever) and completed, lvl 20 Leviathan fight, Tonko: Ichi, and Utsuemi: Ichi. Guarenteed that you can get this by turning in 200 necklaces. Never tested any of the other quests, but I will this week.

I found getting Norg fame to be incredibly easy. Zinc Ore was much faster than Yagudo necklaces (I hate having to run all the way to Mithra Grove in windy to trade necklaces), and having some gil to spare is always a good thing. I didn't spend hours trying to get this, I just did little bits at a time over a few days. Could have done it all in one hit but it would have been quite boring. When I started my rice balls were 169, got them down to 158, although supposedly you only need 160 to get this quest. Anyway, just got the quest started and off to do it with my 62 whm.

Ok I just got done doing this quest last night and just so everyone will know I started with absolutely no Norg fame. I traded exactly 231 yagudo bead necklaces. (I know 231 is an odd #) I went to Norg and got the Utsusemi quest unlocked. So if you just want it for that one quest no need to trade 400. But I'm sure 400 will get you higher fame and be worth it in the long run. Hope this helps ^^

MrBuff...you are a freakin ******...

I love seeing people get so ****** off because they cant do something that other people/players can do. Just because it takes YOU 400 Yag Necks, doesn't mean everyone is full of BS. I've turned in maybe 90 or 100 necklaces by now and the price of the rice balls is at 160. I'm not saying that just because I said it, it makes it true. Almost everyone who is doing the Yag Necklaces to get Norg fame would/should agree with me that this information is correct.

I want to make it VERY clear that it takes FAR more than 200 necklaces to achieve enough norg fame for Utsusemei: Ichi. I farmed them over a year ago, and it took WELL over 400, now, I'm helping my gf farm them and am keeping an EXACT track of them, and the price of rice balls at neptunes spire to see where it stands. As of right now, she has turned in EXACTLY 224, and rice balls are STILL 161gil each! thats WAY off from the goal still, so this will EASILY take more than 400 necklaces. I dont know if something has been changed on the game for calculating fame for norg, but if it has, it has been in effect for a very logn time, since I came up with the same numbers over a year ago. Anyway, I want to say, those of you who say 200 ARE COMPLETELY FULL OF BS, and are going off of hear-say! Go help a friend, and keep count, and you will see EXACTLY what I'm talking about. As for how to attain this RIDICULOUSLY long goal, I suggest havign your inv maxed out (60 slots) and go with as much pace open as possible, bring a friend, and BOTH sub thf for TRH, and you will accomplish the goal much sooner, but I still say it is RIDICULOUS to get well over 400 of these turned in JUST to OPEN UP the quest. I know some things in a game like this SHOULD be challenging, but THIS IS A GAME, and it's number one priority is to be FUN for the players!!! And hunting 400+ necklaces is NOT fun, it's mindless, boring, and repetitive, and SE should be ashamed of themselves to make building norg fame such a sickening chore!

Hey MrBuff

Just a few things, Have you done the quests to unlock SAM and NIN? have you done any other quests in norg at all?

I've done the quest recently and it only took me <250 necklaces to get the price of the rice ball's down.
But then again, I've unlocked SAM and NIN already, and done my SAM AF before starting the quest for utsusemi: ichi.

It terms of square enix making the game frustrating by making you farm yag necklaces, the repetitive quests in this game give you close to no extra fame, which is y you need to do them so many times.
The thing is, SE make them that way because they want you to do the real quests, i.e. the challenging ones in norg in order to get fame, not take the cheap and easy way out by trading little items in excessively. That said, i still traded my necklaces in and got my fame ^^

If you dont like the trading necklaces thing, try to do the norg quests if ure up for the challenge. It'll be a lot more fun and its wat SE intended ^^

Cheers,
Lex

no lex I think SEs plan is to have people sit on their asses for 24 hours a day to grow fat because they have no life and want to do things the hard way not the simple done way. That is extremely awesome you want to do things the hard way but there are people in the world that have jobs, lives, family that don't have time to sit on their asses and gain weight playing a game that takes HOURS to get **** done. Oh wait maybe you do not have one and thats why you love 20 hour quests. This quest by the way is pretty easy but find the easy way out there are little cheats in this quest that can help you make it faster. Or be like lex and do the long way and gain 400 pounds from eating fatty foods sitting on your *** for many hours. The end

As of right now, Midgardsormr price for this scroll has actually dropped by almost half. Went from around 1.2 million to aroud 650,000; thinking of just farming up the gil for it. On the contrary, Ni has risen about another 100-200k and is now 800k. Weird huh?

Not realy sure why it seems to be different for everyone, but I was ble to get both the Tonko: Ichi quest and the Utsusemi: Ichi quest by turning in 72 Zinc Ores and 116 Yagudo Beads. Rice ball price for me was 152g before I went to Norg. Once in Kazam I grabed a chocobo and was asked to do the chocobo run quest and return the bird to the Norg stables, I accepted and did it in 14 min (got lost a couple times :P ). Not sure if maybe the chocobo run pushed me over the last little bit of fame I may have needed or not. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

228 necklaces isn't enough. 228 Necklaces and 10 rusty sublinger however is.

My story. Main charater got this scroll a long time ago, sold it, and has recently desided I should have kept it. ^^ So I created a level 1 mule. Sent him 228 Necklaces thinking that should be enough. (I read 200, but wanted to be sure so I did another 28.) Had mule trade necklaces, bought a stack of silent oils and prisim powders and ran his little but to Jeuno. Had him purchase a Kazam Airship pass for 148,000. (Pricy, but cheaper than the 1,300,000 that the Utsusemi Ichi scroll is currently selling for on Cerberus.) Used sneak oils and prisim powders to run his **** to Norg, couldn't get quest. Decided to talk to guy in Norg who gave me the Kurayami Ichi quest. (Turn in 10 sublingers.) I bought 10 from AH in Norg at 5k each. I gave them to the guy checked fame, now had level 4 fame, got Utsusemi Ichi quest. Set HP in Norg, in case I die, grabbing a silver beast coin to get through door, and going to get my scroll. Lot of work, cost me some gill, to buy airship and then thouse stupid sublingers, but still far cheaper than buying scroll.

Did the zinc ore quest 27 times (108 zinc ore) Rice price went to 150gil. I had no fame before this. Now to do the quests and im done.

Doing the quest 25 times (100 zinc ore) should do the trick but I did 27 just to be safe before traveling back to check rice. :)

Costs me 108k, Zinc ore was selling for 1k each in Bastok. Had all the fame I needed in 2 hours give or take afew.

I did 100 zinc ores "exactly" and my riceballs were 151 in jeuno (price of your riceballs in tenshudo is an indicator of your Norg fame without having to go to Norg to check it)and I got my quest for Utsusemi. Forget the necklaces and all that other BS. I mined a bunch of it from Palborough and and Zeruhn. Being that I am from Basty, this was by far the easiest quest for me.

The guy is in Port Basty in the bottom of warehouse 2. He also gives you a little gil for your efforts. I hope this helps anyone...

Ok, here's what i did. No exaggerations or anything.

I'm from Bastok so my Windy fame was real low when I started to attempt the utsusemi quest. All I did was farm the crap out of Yagudo necklaces (mostly in Giddeus, killed some Yagudos around Windy otw to Giddeus)to turn in to Nanaa Mihgo (or something like that, I forgot exact name) in Windurst. I farmed at least 300 necklaces. I traded in 20 to 30 yag necklaces at a time. And I did this more than ten times, that's for sure. I can safely say that I turned in at least 300 necklaces. I also did the zinc ore quest in Port Bastok, but only like 5 time for 20 zinc ores total. After all this I got the quest. Trust me, I tried getting the quest at around 200 and 250 necklaces, but no dice. I never paid attention to riceball price, but after getting quest I checked it (Tenshodo in Lower Jeuno) and it was at 153 gil. This is my experience. I did not do any (maybe 1-4) windy or Tenshodo quests prior to trying utsusemi quest. I feel that if you get around 300 necklaces, you'll get the quest, at least I hope so. Good luck! Hope this helps.

dunno if this has been stated, and I'm not going to read the whole list of posts to see if it has^^ I have done these quests before, I'm doing them again. The reason people are reporting varying prices on rice balls is that they may not have done the questsstarting from utsusemi. Utsusemi (or jubaku maybe?) is the highest fame req. of the quests, you can go to norg without enough fame to start utusemi and raise it to a high enough level to get it by doing the other quests.

Kurayami and dokumori are lowest, then tonko and hojo, I think jubaku and ustusemi are highest (I could be wrong). I'm doing the quests for the 2nd time today, a friend has done them thrice, he said that 160 was sufficient on one of those runs if you do all the quests "in order".

Here is my humble experience about getting Utsusemi: Ichi.

First of as you know you need level 4 fame, to do the Utsusemi: Ichi quest.

Fame is the killer (downtime) if you donít have it you need to do some "hard work" to get it.

You properly already know about how to raise fame in Norg, if not check out this link.

http://ffxi.cannotlinkto/fame.php

Now that you know that you can do this in 2 ways.

Yagudo Necklace you can buy or farm, I did both things.

Xinz ore is the same thing, Zinc ore drops by worms and can be mined to.

My experience about how many used for level 4 fame.

41x4 trades of Yagudo Necklaces = 164

8x4+1 trades of Zinc Ore = 33

NB: The +1 is the one to do the first quest in Bastok to be able to trade in 4 later.

That will be total number of 197 Yag + Ore and now I got level 4 fame I was trilled but no one shared my excitements with me ;o(

Oh well life goes on, he he.

Now I was ready to do the quest for Tonko: Ichi. (require level 3 Norg fame) and Utsisemi: Ichi.

I found this guide* before I did the whole raise fame thing and it seemed easy to do the quest. (I have heard that it is wary hard to do Utsusemi quest, well buhu it was easy.

* This guide: http://www.zebraflood.com/ninja/ninjutsu.html

Printed it out with map and hole stuff and did the Tonko quest, took me 3 minutes as white mage 47 and did the Utsusemi quest after that, took me about 30 min to do. (Had a little trouble to find the right door for silver beastcoin.

NB: In the room there are 3 doors.

1, which is opened by silver beastcoin (the one for Utsusemi quest.
1, which is opened by gold beast coin (donít know much about that)
1, which is opened by mytheril beastcoin (donít know much about that either)

White mage is not required you can also do it with any level you have with silent oil (use a unlevelled job so you wont loose experience point)

Well that is my info on these quests; with the links and stuff you can do the same thing. I hope it helps out :o)


Today is my 3rd day as ninja.

Tips about that:

If you have Ranger job then sub it for the first 1-10 or 1-12 levels and buy a good bow. That will make you levelling wary fast because of the damage your bow and arrows can do. I also used HP Regen food, which rocks and gives absolutely no downtime. Of course it cost but if you want to level fast do as I did. Also use a sword since Katana sucks at low level; hope that they will get better later on.


Have fun, and be a nice player and help your fellow players to.

Another Rice Ball post

Whoever said that the rice ball prices are unreliable is completely correct. After doing many yag necklace runs (didn't count, sorry), joining the Tenshodo, unlocking ninja, and starting (but not completing) the samurai flag quest, my rice ball price was at 158. I decided to head to Norg anyway. To my surprise, I activated all of the NIN scroll quests (Tonko, Utsusemi, Kurayami, Hojo, and Dokumori) except Jubaku from Shivivi. The rice balls may give you a hint about how much fame you have, but the bestway to see if you can get Utsusemi is to make a trip to Norg and talk to Laisrean directly.

Yeah, the rice ball price can be misleading. If enough people have been buying the rice balls the price will go up (like in many other NPC shops).

I calculated how many more beads I needed and farmed them. I came out a little too high in rice ball price when I re-checked, but when I went to Norg I got the quests anyway.

The rice balls have to be under 150 to get this quest. I've tested this, as well as several others.
