Summary

Ohbiru-Dohbiru is running out of the Giddeus water needed to raise Fluoro-flora. He wants you to take a Rhinostery canteen to the springs at the back of Giddeus in order to refill his supply.

Walkthrough

Ohbiru-Dohbiru is in the Rhinostary. He asks you to go to Giddeus and get him some water from the spring there. Take the container he gives you to Giddeus to either of the springs (E-12 and K-12) and fill it up and bring it back for your reward.

I suspect the level of 21, posted below, for being -able- to do the quest solo is pretty accurate. However, be advised that at 24, the two Yagudo right next to the Southwest pond aggro at a rate of about 65%. My poorly equipped WM doesn't do well in fighting them, but was able to flee, with all the Yagudos in the whole of Giddeus chasing :o) Know the escape route, and practice crossing the elevated walkway if necessary; the Yagudo are either slow, or have pathing troubles. i never completely outran them though; new Yagudo joined the chase all the way to the exit.

Hypothesis, not fact: I suspect this quest is capped at a certain fame level, as is Mom the Adventurer (Bastok Mkts).
Was running this for money, have found better, will post factual data on cap if / when I find it.

Clearing up a few things

I just wanted to clear up something about this quest.

If you have the quest "Say it with Flowers" active, you HAVE to finish that one before this one will activate.

I found this out after about 2 weeks of trying to activate this quest. If you activate "Say it with Flowers" and do not finish it, the npc will just keep repeating the same thing over and over and never give you the quest. Once i figured this out, I finished "Say it with Flowers" and got the quest. Thank god.

Oh, one more thing. "Say it with Flowers" is NOT, i repeat, NOT a prereq for getting the quest. If you have not activated "Say it with Flowers" you can activate this quest as long as you have finished "Food for Thought" and "Overnight Delivery".

I hope this helps some ppl who are having trouble getting the quest activated.

I found this out today after having tried to get it active for about 2 weeks. So when i found that I had the "Say It With Flowers" quest active, I finished it, and the quest actived. Thank god.

Another thing to note, "Say It With Flowers" is NOT a prereq to get the quest. So if you have not actived "Say It With Flowers" you can get this quest by completing just "Food for Thought" and "Overnight Delivery".

Hope this helps with some ppl who are stuck trying to activate the quest.

i've read all the posts and have completed the pre req quests as well. My fame is not that great in Windhurst. I've rezoned each time. When I ask for the quest from the NPC in the Rhinostery - he talks about 'zooilogical lab...his boss is out journeying for supplies'.

I'm stumped. I went out and back in several times.

I'm lev 40 whm.

Any advise is appreciated.

if you have started the warp II quest this quest is gone... you cannot repeat it anymore... i reaped this fella for a lot of money till i decided to hit 40 with blm and quest for warp... so if your not sure why you cannot do this anymore its probably because you have either started or done warp II

I started this quest a long time ago and just decided to complete it. I seem to have gotten rid of the container I was supposed to put the water in. I have done the food quest already. Is there any way to get the container back after dropping it?

I also threw the container away as I did not want to fetch the water again, but i think as a result, this is preventing me to start the next quest, which is blue ribbon blue.
Would appreciate if any know if it is possible to get the container back. ^^;

if they are saying they are hungry, you need to go to the room that is on the other side and talk to the "meditating" Taru (sorry I can't remember his name, all Tarus scare me)...he will ask you to make a food run, the Food For Thought quest. I have easily 30 quests done and last time I checked my fame level, I was talked about over meals (don't remember the fame level) and I still can't do it...there have to be more than 1 pre-quests to get this activated.

Stronger Water Elsewhere?

After completing this Quest, Ohbiru-Dohbiru says of the water:

"We used to be able to find stronger magic water in another place, but that was before the war..."

Is he hinting that you can take the canteen somewhere else for stronger water? Or is this said merely to flesh out the game's story?

I've done this quest ONCE, count it ONCE, and a long time ago. I decided to come back to Windy to try and repeat this one a few times, and he will NOT give it to me again.

I've done the Overnight Delivery quest and Food For Thought, and I've done Water Way to Go! ONCE. Why won't he give it to me again?

I think my fame level in Windy is only level 4 or 5... I don't get it. ; ; It can't be too high, because there are still a lot of quests I can't get yet.

Any clues? ; ;

I've done this quest just once and I can't get it anymore. Is it because my fame is too high?

Currently my fame checks as: "A day doesn't go by when I fail to hear a tale of your deeds. I am proud to be a citizen of the same great country as Sir Kasper! Keep up the marvelous work!

Anyone have any ideas?

Hints for this quest
# Feb 04 2004 at 5:43 AM Rating: Default
At some point when I obtained "Say It With Flowers," I finished it and able to obtain "Food For Thought." After "FFT," I could obtain "Overnight Delivery." Only if "OD" is completed, then you are able to obtain this "Water Way To Go" quest. Remember, zone out of W.Waters then zone in back each time you completed a quest!!

Previous posts regarding this quest mentioned it is repeatable but only for like 10 times. However, I am sure I did it more than 10 times because I recorded each time. I didn't keep track after 10 times, and I lost count after about 12 times. I guess I did this quest for 15-18 times altogether, but the previous posts were correct about this quest has a limit.

For lvl 21, the Yagudos near to the spring can aggro & link ("easy prey" when checked). Somehow I feel Pipers will not aggro BUT they link. Initiates, Scribes, Acolytes will no longer aggro. Prosecutors and Mercenaries will aggro and link.

When I came back at a later time, my BLM was lvl 25, and nothing aggro me (I mean on the way I go to the spring, not the entire Giddeus zone). The last 2 Yagudos that guarding the spring con as "easy prey" still, but they won't aggro me.

Moreover, be careful with the bees. Usually they won't aggro, but may or may not link if Yagudos hit you. I also have this experience: When there are no Yagudos but only bees, con as "easy prey," they won't aggro me, but when I heal (rest), they attacked me.

Last Note: This quest is best to do together with "A Crisis in the Making" quest, just a bit more walk. You can earn 900(Water Way.... quest)+400(A Crisis.... quest) = 1300gil. As a BLM with Warp, 20 minutes will be enough for these 1300gil.

Again, after you finished once, you need to "re-zone" to get the same quest again. I chose to zone to W.Ports then come back because Rhinostary is close to W.Ports zoneline.
Aggro, or not to aggro?

All yagudos aggro if they con as easy prey or tougher.

If the yagudo is "Too weak to be worthwhile" and you heal in its line of sense, it will aggro you. This is the same with all things that aggro.

((They will aggro if you are healing a/o easy prey and up))

Same with bees. These are generally lower leveled, so if the yagudos cons as easy, they will probably not aggro unless you are healing.

I found this out when I was farming for yagudo necklaces as a blm (25-30-ish) when my mp was drained from all of my -aga spells, and I rested, things would aggro me. (( Bear in mind, I was staying near the entrance )).

As for linking, yes beastmen link AND aggro(TWTBW and above). And, according to the Beastiary here, the bees link/aggro too. >.<

Hope this clears any aggro/non-aggro/link questions. ^^

Actually not all "Easy Prey" will aggro. It varies on the level of the "Easy Prey". If they are the lowest tier in that range, they may not aggro, however mid-to-upper level in the tier of "Easy Prey" will aggro. ^^;

At level 25 the non-key dropping tier-one beastment will seldom aggro. They will be too weak at 26-27.

this quest requires you to run past an area crawling with pipers/mendicants/persecutors, so a lvl 7 will die doing this. The springs are NOT by the npc yagudos with the altar for mission 3. You can do this quest and avoid higher lvl yagudos (preist/theologist/votary) easily, so probably 20+ or so, when the tier 2 yagudos no longer aggro is the easiest time to do this.

I would have to disagree with the comment about lvl 7 being a good time to try this. I went in with a fellow whm, both level 27, and we had trouble with the two mobs guarding the springs on both sides. They both conned easy but when they link you've got problems. We made it thru but our mp didn't...lvl 7 is much too earlier to be trying this one.

i think the quest works on fame, not the number of quests you do.

Fame increases each time you do a quest, or repeat a quest.

Myself, a level 12 thief / 6 monk and my linkshell mate 12 warrior / 6 thief went into giddeus for this quest, plus 2 others (A Crisis in the Making and Early Bird Catches teh Bookworm). Those 2 were moderatly easy to get to and finish, but man let me tell you this spring was definatly a feat to get to.

First off we wandered for about an hour trying to find it, and finaly had to ask a japanese player for help. The spring(s) are apparently in E12 and K12, we went to the k12 one.

I had 28 quests done (unique) and probably 10 repeatables, but i could not get this quest until i had done the quest for Kenapa-keppa involving the night time luggage delivery. So you probably need to do that one first, in order to get this one.

Buy the map for Giddeus before heading to Giddeus. You can get the map in Windurst Woods, by the circle fountain at a tent.

On the map of Giddeus, the water springs are at the first two normal square rooms/areas directly south. They are the square parallel to each other on the map. You'll know when you're there because there are named Yagudo at alter nearby the water.

Earliest to do this level safely is 7.
