Need fame level 4 to start quest

I couldn't start this quest, even after doing Glyph Hanger, Early Bird, Chasing Tales quests.
The problem was that I didn't have enough windy fame, not that I was from Bastok. I only had level 2 fame, I just traded in ~50 cornets to get my fame to level 4. I could start the quest and I now have my map of Fei'Yin :)

Anyone can get this quest.
First you have to do the quests Glyph Hanger, Early Bird, Chasing Tales, then ZONE.
Come back to Hariga-Origa and he SHOULD give you the quest.

You don't have to be windurstian to get this quest >.< Or else only windurst would have a map to fei'yin >.>;;
am I right?

Have I got this right. Only citizens of Windhurst can get this Map since you have to do a mission as a prereq.

There is no mission prequest for this quest. Nor do i think there is a quest that had a Mission prequest as part of its pre-requisets.

Though Mission 2-3 for sandy Chateau d'Oraguille enterance is needed for non sandy ppl, i think its mission 2-1 for sandy ppl

Please help!

I'm Rank 6, Hero fame, have done Glyph Hanger, Early Bird, Chasing Tales, a total of 40 quests. I'm at a loss for what to do....he will not give me the quest.

I have also read ALL the postings, and have talked to everyone in the optistery, zoned back and forth a million times.

Does anyone think this has something to do with me already going to Fei'Yin and doing the Shadow Lord battle for Rank 6 or the fact that I accepted the Optistery's "Heaven Cent" quest? I'm also trading in more crystals in order to increase my rank points.

I'M SO CONFUSED!!!

did all the pre-req's for this and had the "every-

When I went back he gave me the quest, I gave him the turnip and slime oil and he gave me the map! What a pain in the posterior!!!

Just keep doing the quests around the npc he will eventually give you the quest. And don't forget you have to be able to do the pre-req quests first. ;)

I got my fame the cheapo way...I went to Bastok (while they were second in the conquest) and bought an inventory full of cornettes at the instrument shop in Markets, and traded them to the guy in walls who asks for strange things mandragora drop (I believe the quest is Mandragora Mad) and I got this quest. Mind you, I had about level 1-2 fame at the time, but now I have at least 4 (I haven't checked it yet, lol).

As for doing it, I suggest paying the whole 1k for slime oil on the AH and then going to the cultarian's guild for the turnip. The map is used in various quests and missions, so it's a pretty easy quest to do for the reward you get.

This Quest was a pain in the ass... BUT well worth it... i now have the map... here is what i did

17 Windurst Quests, and i turned in 3 stacks of Sardines 1 at a time at Port Windurst NPC - Tokaka located at C-8. That gave me rank 4 Windy fame and did all the Prerequisates for this quest and got it.

Right now i have 3 more stacks of sardines left and gonna turn them all in 1 at a time and see how far my rank will go up... ill re-post in an hour or so when im done :-D

Update:

Took me awhile to get to rank 5... turned in 24 Bastore Sardines... still rank 4, then ive decided to turn in Cornette's and BAM! Rank 5, i only turned in 13 Cornette's after turning in 2 stacks of sardines. but if you have the money, just buy Cornette's they will build your fame faster than doing that annoying Sardine Quest.!

After building up enough Fame (Lvl 4...I'm from San D'Oria), I was able to activate this quest and got the map! Lucky for the taru mages of Windy! I was on the verge of declaring war on them all! lol
So you have to do the previous quests (Glyph Hanger..Early Bird...Chasing Tales (Lvl 3 Fame req'd) and have Lvl 4 Fame to open Smudge On One's Record quest.

To buy Frost Turnips, visit your friendly, neighborhood Valdeaunia vendor.

Tibelda- Bastok Mines (E-6)
Palguevion- North San d'Oria (F-6)
Zoreen- Port Windurst(M-7)

The country that controls the region has the vendor, so at most only one of them will sell it over the week. Check out /rmap to see who controls the region. If beastmen control Valdeaunia you cannot get them from regional vendors.

Or if San d'Oria is in first place, Aveline at Raimbroy's Grocery store in Southern San d'Oria (F-7). (You may have to be a San d'Orian resident to be able to buy them, I cannot remember for sure.)

Also, the hares in Ulegrande Range also occasionally drop Frost Turnips, but the drop rate is kind of low, and they are pretty high level mobs.

It depends on the conquest placements. If Windy is in first place, they will have it, but if it is in last, they will most likely not. This goes for all other NPC shops in cities.
RE: Frost Turnip
# Sep 11 2006 at 7:29 AM Rating: Decent
If you are looking to buy a frost turnip from an NPC you can only do so when the city that the NPC is in has control of Valdeaunia.

Example:
If Windurst currently has control of Valdeaunia you can buy the frost turnip from the Glaka NPC in Port Windurst.

If the Valdeaunia is currently under beastmen control then the only place you can get a frost turnip is from AH (you will be lucky, I am on Garuda server and I have only ever seen one for sale at AH) or by farming it.

Hope that helps someone.

Thanks everyone for their info on this quest. It took me a long time to get this because I wasn't sure why I didn't get the quest.

I started off with rank4 fame in windy and still didn't get this. I did the following 3 Quests
Glyp Hanger, Early Bird gets the Worm, and Chasing Tales.

After doin my last quest Chasing Tales, I zoned out and zoned back in and I was able to get the quest.

i must have had the most boring time trying to master this quest, if you are having trouble this should clear it up..

first off, i bought 4 stacks of bastore sardines and traded them to Tokaka at C-8 in port windurst. you have to talk to her, trade a sardine, zone and do it again, 1 at a time. it takes forever i know, i spent a whole day doing this.. first i traded 2 stacks.. 1 sardine at a time, then i went off and did Glyph Hanger, Early Bird Catches the Bookworm, and Chasing Tales (3 windy quests that you can look up).. after that, i still didnt have enough fame, so i went back and painfully traded another 2 stacks of sardines.. 1 at a time, zoning etc.., so in total i traded 4 stacks of bastore sardines, did those three quests, (I'm not sure if my being rank 6 made it easier as far as getting less fame was concerned), and i was finally able to accept this quest from that fricking lil tarutaru.. hopefully this will shine the light on some questions

The Map Quest

So, I just did the quest before and I wanna write down my experience here.

What I did?

1. I talk to Hariga-Origa and he gave me a quest A Smudge on One's Record. After I did that, I warp to HP and come back and talk to him again. I couldn't get the quest.

2. I did the first book quest in Giddeus. Complete that, warp to HP

3. I did the second book quest which I need to goto Sandy. Warp back, completed the quest, talked to Hariga-Origa and didn't get the quest.

4. So I tried to zone again (warp to hp) and came back, and supprise! I got the quest. Trade the 2 items to him and got 3k and the map.

Infos: I only have Fame 3 in Windy and only completed 8 windy quests.

I hope my experience can help those to get the map easier.

p.s: I'm from Bastok, so you don't need to be from Windy to get this quest.

Are there really quests that you can only do if you're from that country or do people just confuse missions and quests. Missions can only be done if you're from that nation. I've never heard of a quest I couldn't do because I'm from another country. Oh well.

Some quests require that you reach a certain Rank in your hometown (Rank 3 to be precise). This will let you into areas that you normally are not allowed into. E.g. Heavens Tower, The Chatteau, and The Basok capital thingy.
Outside of that, the only other thing I have heard of was something involving the gate to Toraimoria canal... But, I am nowhere near a high enough lvl to even attempt that quest, and I am from windy:). And worst case scenerio... just go through the three mage gate if you don't have the key for the gate in Windy...

The walkthrough says that you must complete a Windurst mission. What about non-citizens of Windurst? Does it just check rank? I have at least decently high fame in Windy, don't know exact, and I can't get the Early Bird quest even.

The walkthrough is wrong about the prerequisites. I'm rank 9 Bastokan with hero Windy fame. I was able to go to treasure room and trade silver beastcoin without any problem. What confused me for a little bit was the named yagudo (Uu Zhoumo) that is in front of the door to the treasure room. He kept repeating:

"Me be keeper of treasure chamber. Hoot! Me be differing from brethren in not liking to fight. Smoothskin have no business here! Should leave now!"

I originally thought I had to talk to him to gain access to the room. After a minute or two of cursing my wife told me to try to target the door instead and that worked. Everything else went smoothly.

Hope this helps...if it did.. rate me up^^

There are two quests you must complete before you can get the Fei'yin map quest. They are below:

1. Early Bird Catches The Bookworm

2. Chasing Tales
http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/quests.html?realm=Windurst&fquest=201

Be sure to zone after completing each quest to get the next.

After you have completed these two quests, you can then get access to A Smudge on One's Record.

I could not get this quest for the longest time even after I raised my fame to level 9. I then completed the two book quests. Still no quest. I counted the number of quests I had ... 34. Completed one more quest and that did it! Finally.

Hope this helps others.

I'm at Fame Level 7, Rank 4 in Windurst and I've done Glyph Hanger, but I still can't get this Quest until I completed the Early Bird Catches the Bookworm Quest and the Chasing Tales, so this is the key. For the second one, you have to go to San d'Oria so I would suggest while you're there that you do the Her Majesty's Garden Quest for the Maps of the Northern Regions (Beaucedine Glacier and Xarcabard). Hope this helps someone.

I have all those done plus Lv 9 Fame in Windy, and I got the quest. One thing that might confuse people is that Hariga-Origa gives the quest, not Tosuka-Porika (who gives the Early Bird and Chasing Tales quests). Make sure you talk to the right guy for the quest ^_^

You saved my life, Vonaota =P

Just one comment, you must zone after completing "Chasing Tales" before you can get this quest (A Smudge on One's Record) from Hariga-Origa... or at least I had to.

Hey, just wondering. People keep saying you need ot do the book quests, but to do one of them you need to do mission 2-1 or something. So how do you get this quest if you are not from windy?
Damn quest...

I just got this quest with fame 5 ("Hello there, ___. There aren't many Windurstians who don't know that name!"). I went to Hariga-Origa immediately fter finishing the previous Opistery quest ('Chasing Tales'), but he wouldn't give me this quest...until I zoned and came back.

My fame level is 7 ("Dorme. There isn't a soul in all of windurst that has yet to hear of your tales. Why, I Remember when you were just a fledgling adventurer. It seems like just yesterday... ") and I still can't get this quest. There must be some strange requirement for it.

I don't know how the fame ratings on this site work (from the user comments they're mostly wrong anyway). I was desperately trying to get this quest after doing the first three. I was at 3/9 fame and couldn't get it. I finally got my fame to go up to level 4, and I could get the quest. The quote for this fame level is: "Why, if it isn't [Name]! I heard some guys talking about you over their dinners at the eatery last night. They had nothing but good things to say about you. Keep up the good work!"

I hope this helps some of you.

Someone said that the Frost Turnip is not in the cooking guild, which it is. I don't know if Windy has to be 1st in Rank, but I bought 2 stacks there last night to make broth, so I know it exists.

I've never seen the Frost Turnip there. I was just looking for it to cook with. Windy was in first. Maybe someone has to sell it to the guild first?

I could not get this quest until I had finished the missing book quests for the library. My fame level is: "Miss Tamrith! You'd have to be living in a hole somewhere not to have heard that name."

The frost turnip is NOT found in the Culinarian's Guild! In Windurst the only place you can find it is in the air travel agency by a very laconic galka... however, if Windurst doesn't control Valdeaunia, then you're out of luck. Time to start globetrotting... or buy them off of the AH.

Even with Valdeaunia under the Windurst Flag, you can't reach the Frost Turnip pusher without a Airship Pass first. His shop is in a horrible location. So for me, it was the AH, where I got both the turnip and oil for 1,100 gil. It was a bit pricy, but defently recoup the looses quickly when completing the quest. Best of all, I didn't travel anywhere for it.

The rewards for this quest are quite sweet. The two itmes cost a combined 900 gil at ah and in return you get Fei Yin map and 3000 gil for 2-3 minutes of work. Only problem is building up the fame for them.

Yes you do need both library quests... And yes you do need fame.

But most importantly... YOU NEED TO ZONE...

If you just did the 2nd library quest, having been given the gil, etc. You need to zone. The simplest way is to use the NPC warp to woods, and back again. Then talk to Hariga Origa again. You will get the quest this time if you have already met the pre-quest qualifications and fame requirements.

You have no idea how many ppl have asked me what do i have to do get this, or why cant i get this...

Sorry my mistake with the name, it is Hariga-Origa.
I wanted to say that you get this quest from the same npc as the Horutoto ruin's map quest, not from the npc who gives the books quests.

Here's my story
# Mar 08 2004 at 1:00 PM Rating: Decent
This is a stacking quest, I had to do lost for words (mission 2-1) before I could get the first book quest. After you are done leave zone and return, you can do the Early Bird catches the bookworm quest, return the first book get 1500gil, leave zone and return and you can get the secone quest chasing tails, which takes a couple of hours to do because you have to go to San's to get the book. Upon returning the book you get 2800gil, leave zone, and return and you can do this quest. Fame allows you to get the quests, but you can't do the quest before you do the book quests. There are several stacking quests you have to do in order to get the next quest. I also have found that you have to finish one quest from and area/building before they will give you another. Stacking quest also deal with fame (i.e. have to have certain fame to start at least the first quest on the stack) but not sure if the related quests need the same or high fame, I've never had a problem with getting a quest higher on the stack if I've done the other ones first. But I do have a high fame. I'm also not sure (cause I've only one one character) if fame has to do do with both number and times you do a quest or if its the number of quests you've done.

Rank 5, maximum fame level for Windhurst, still could not get this quest. The people who posted that you need Optisery 'fame' are correct. I had to do both book quests.

He means he is rank 5, and also has the highest amount of fame possible in windurst, not that rank 5 is the highest possible. And rank 10 is the highest rank, and lots of people have gotten there, at least on my server anyways
