On FFXI wiki it says it takes 27.1 stacks of La Theine Cabbage to get to rank 2 fame.

This is incorrect I traded exactly 30 stacks and am still level 1 fame.

Which fame are you talkin' about?

Only applies to Bastok, Sandy, and Jeuno fame and excludes Windy!
Which city?

I have been doing the fame increase for Sandy. What I have discovered that for every 30 stacks of La Theine Cabbage that I trade I go up 1 fame level for sandy. It isn't too expensive to do considering you get most of your gil back. but it is very time consuming. I did it with my level 18 BLM so I could warp back to sandy when done trading. I did it with no armor or weapons, or anything else in inventory. So I could cary 30 stacks of cabbage. I rented a chocobo for the trip to selbina then warped back to sandy. Also as my fame went up the cabbage got cheaper. I hope this helps someone else.

P.S. dont buy the cabbage at the AH, buy it from grocer. The AH is way overpriced.

rubahah in whitegate(f-9) sells the corn for 48 gil apiece, trading in 3 pieces gives 120 back, with a loss of 24x4 gil per stack, or 96 gil per stack. if you trade 50 stacks (as said above to be more than enough fame for avatar fights) thats a whopping 4800 gil loss to pay for max fame.

so far from what ive been reading, people are trading in alot of the moss, and ive figured out that you can max you fame in sandy bastok and jeuno with one run *if your turning in moss* and it would take alittle more than 25 stacks, but this is just an estimate. with 25 stacks of moss you hear the fame noise 300 times which would mean that if you had zero fame in sandy or bastok and hearing that noise 300 times indeed maxed your fame, it would take 75 stacks of millioncorn to equal the 300 turn-in's, roughly 3 trips if you dont have gobbiebags done. if you buy from the vendor for 50 gil a corn it'll cost you 45,000 gil to buy it all without the money you get back from him, but with the money you get back you'll only spend 9k gil! which is pretty amazing if this does indeed max your fame, now all i need is hardcore proof so if someone wants to try this, be my guest and please post your fame after the turn-in's but im going to be trying this sometime soon so if nobody try's it before i do, ill post the results i get. well that pretty much sums up most of what ppl have been posting about so now ya dont have to read this whole forum to figure out whatcha need XD enjoy

Can your fame level actually drop? For example, if i am a Hero (lvl 9 Fame) in Sandy and Bastok, and i do some quest tht lowwers fame in some odd way, will my fame lvls actually drop a level?
Problem?
# Sep 11 2006 at 4:30 AM Rating: Decent
Okay, i seem to be having a problem with this quest so i'd like to find out wether i've done something wrong. I've traded many of the mentioned items to Melyon, yet i've not noticed any increase in fame for Bastok/Sandy at all. Does this quest still work or does the fame increase only work when you're not doing any missions currently?

I was doing this quest to get enough fame in Bastok to get the Mean Machine quest for the warp scroll. I loaded up on 26 stacks of million corn (currently 0 Bastok fame), after trading them all I am now level 4 Bastok fame. Needless to say this is a great quest for fame building and I also made a slight profit. I recommend trading 3 millioncorns instead of paying 10k or more for a stack of boyahda moss or buying the stacks of La Theine Cabbages. I haven't checked what it did for me in Jeuno, but I am from Sandy and was level 2 fame when I get back to check my fame there I'll repost.

Okay, I finally got off my butt and got my Norg fame leveled. And I have all of the quests I'll bother with (except for the WS and AF quests)flagged. My question is, if they are flagged, and I do this quest (and my Norg fame is lowered from level 4), will I still be able to finish all of these flagged quests later on when I need the items. I really don't feel like actually doing all of them until I need them. =/

My guess is that I would be able to finish them and get my items, but I don't know. Would the quest unflagg(word?)? Or would the NPCs just act like the quest isn't even flagged? That'd be a bunch of BS....

You have to be careful with this quest. I just finished up getting enough yag necklaces to do the utsusemi quest in norg, and then I did about 10 stacks of moss. Little did I know that this quest LOWERS Norg fame, and it dropped it down to about level 2 norg fame. The Moss will lower your fame, Corn does not, and I'm not sure if cabbage does or not, can anyone confirm?

That's because you increase Jeuno's fame. If you try to increase jeuno's fame while you have norg's fame, it will reduce your norg's fame. Best way is max out jeuno's fame, then do norg's fame later.

Rice Balls is a completly inaccurate way to go about seeing you norg fame, i was told rice balls = 153 is max norg fame but when i went to norg and my rice balls were = 153 i had no norg fame, i did the Yagudo neclaces/Zinc or quests to get my rice balls down to 153. Luckily once you start questing Ninja scrolls in norg..i did tonko, then i did hojo and another kauramy both Ichi i got to about lvl 5 fame which opend up Utsutsemi, you need atleast lvl 5 fame for this quest. I dont believe in the rice ball theory, its doesnt work.

What an easy way to fame up. Basically, doing this quest with 1 stack each of corn and moss will net you enough fame to quest warp, drain, and any other thing you would need in levels 1-20.

Aragenou regional vender in Sandy is Antonian @ (J-8).
Fame guy in Sandy is Namonutice in South Sandy inside 'Lion's Spring' @(K-6).

Did this today. Traded 29 stacks of Millioncorn. 1 Millioncorn was 50gil, so 29 stacks was 17,400 gil. Got 120gil for every 3 corn traded. So you get 13,920 gil back, so your only spending 3,480gil.

Results: Had 0 fame in Sandy ("No, never head of that name"). After trading 29 stacks of corn I had level 4-5 fame ("I hear your name often, People speak well of you!"). I had enough to do Drain. My fiance also did this, but w/ 21 stacks of corn and was ~lv4 fame in Jeuno, enough to start gobbie bags.

Alternative if Bastok not in 1st or 2d: craft the coronettes yourself. Quite low (14 bone, 14 gold, craft at level 9 or 10 in both; uses 1 bone chip, 1 brass ingot; you can get both crafts to that level while making profit if you know what you are doing). If you don't have these crafts, maybe it's time to get them, since at least a low GS is important in most crafts. As I recall, I traded about 50 coronettes to the guy in Windy (think his name is Oran-Yoran?); remember his house is way north on one of the Windy town maps; coronette is one of three items he takes for his experiments, gives ?200 gil back per coronette). As to getting from mandies, was helping a friend with Windy fame quest after I had TH2, and drops were still infrequent.

I know how you feel. Windy is pretty obnoxious. It's best if you have a mule or a friend on standby in Bastok while lvling your Windy fame. This is, of course, if Bastok is in first. Trade Cornettes to Yoran-Oran which you can either buy from the music shop, or farm from mandragoras. This takes A LOT of cornettes, though. The only other repeatable ones are pretty expensive, as 3x beehive chips gets pricey fast, and same with 3x silk thread. Patience is key. You'll get there!

I didnt have nearly any fame anywhere (maybe level 2 in sandy) before I began. I needed enough fame to get the Delkfutt's tower map. I stripped down to my skivvies (I had sword, shield and LS) and filled up with as many of the items as I could get (aka 27 stacks) - but only one stack of millicorn. Regardless, made the one run out there - tradded eveyrthing in (which took about an hour and a half or so because I had about 10 stacks of moss - 120 trades). Sandy my fame was level 7 and Jueno was level 6. More than enough for my quest plus at least two levels of gobbie bag.

And here's a good fame guide I found:

i have come to believe that certain items will raise certain areas fame more so then others.. my bastok fame was 4. sandy 5.and im not sure what jeuno was.
After trading 90stacks of la theine cabbage to the NPC. I was a hero in sandy/jeuno, but bastok fame was only 5. Now by reading other peoples posts about this quest. it just didnt seem right.
So its unknown to me what else would raise bastok more then sandy but i know the cabbage will focus more towards sandy.
BTW you can buy La Theine Cabbage for 21gil from a NPC in south sandy.. leaving you with a 12gil loss per stack (not bad if i say so myself) but i think the NPC will only sell them if sandy has zulkeim control(not sure tho).
hope some of this helps >.<

i handed in 122 boyahda moss and i had enough fame for 3+ gobbieabags but the price of riceballs went up to 166gil again.

dont do this quest if you are trying to quest utsusemi ichi, i wasted hours getting norg fame up and now i have to start again, oh well

Riceball Price is Lowered with norg fame and Raised with Jeuno Fame.
3+ Gobbie quests and a 6 gil increase in riceballs.

As already stated, the only way to check norgfame is to check it in norg. Riceballs aren't acurate at all.
My riceballs price was 166 when i flagged Utusemi ^^

Sadly.... your wrong. It Does Not lower fame, riceballs are not an exact way to check your norg fame the only way to be exact is by talking to the guy in norg that tells you your fame lvl. When people buy riceballs and a day changes the price goes up, if no one buys and a whole day passes it goes back down. I promise you, It's true.

Listen to this person. They are correct. Rice balls don't indicate Norg fame accurately. I did the utsusemi quest when they were at 166gil a piece. And I did enough zinc ore quests to put myself up to lvl 5+ fame straight away. The rice balls when checked before I set out for Norg to do the quest were at 160, clearly too high for the quest (according to the 153 method of checking) despite the fact I had 220 or so pieces of zinc ore traded and at least another 30 necklaces. Over the course of my questing to increase fame, rice balls actually went up from 154 to 166 despite the fact I did no other quests at the time. So don't listen to those people claiming the Selbina quest lowers Norg fame. They just don't know how to properly check Norg fame. Might even be people wanting to sell large ammounts of zinc ore and yagudo necklaces and wanting to trick people into buying more than necessary.

According to what's previously stated, you'd need only about 90 stacks of cabbage to max Bastok/San d'Oria fame. With out any gobbiebags done, it took me 3 runs, 2 with 29 and 1 with 2 (Gotta have me LS equipped.)

EDIT: The 3 run thing, I meant to say I already had 3 fame in San d'Oria/Bastok.

i dont believe u can do more then 1 item at a time >< and that is y i used moss, because it is the only trade that uses 1 item for the quest..

however if u want to try maybe u could try this

/targetnpc
/item "item" <t>
/item "item" <t>
/item "item" <t>
ect...

this may allow u to do it although im not sure.
if ne1 tries this please post back results

*edit* :- damn my keyboard ^^

I've tried to come up with a macro for corn, since economically it's better than moss, but with no luck :/

I can confirm that this does not work:
/targetnpc
/item "item" <t>
/item "item" <t>
/item "item" <t>

I also tried /item 3 "Millioncorn" <t> and /item "Millioncorn" 3 <t> and they don't work either. (but then again there is no reason that they should lol)

I'm about to go back on and do another run, if I find a corn/cabbage macro I'll post it here.

Btw: After 12 stacks of corn and 38 total moss I've gone from fame level 0 to 3 in bastok. (haven't checked other cities)

Here is the dilly. I started off with absoultely no quest done in sandy or bastok. Only advantage I had maybe was having rank5.

83 stacks of cabbage, 13 stacks of millioncorn and 6 stacks of moss gave me sufficent fame for the Titan and shiva fork quest. I'm assuming gurada too but I havent gotten to Rabao yet.

Hope it helps somone. Peace

I've done about 12 stacks of moss so far to reach lvl 6 fame in Sandy and Bastok. Jeuno fame was sufficient enough for gobbie bags and RSE quests. Seeing as moss sells for 10k on Diabolos right now (net loss of 2.8k/stack) I recommend either farming it, or buying singles over time at 500-600 to make money or break even.

if its true from wat i heard.. 25 stacks of boyahda Moss will get u lvl 9 fame in Sandy, Bastok, and Jeuno. But if jeuno fame rises all town fame rise too,right? so Windrust must get involved with the quest..lol.

I waned to know about how many stacks of the Boyahda moss do you need to max out your fame in Sandy and Bastok. I have about level 2 fame in each of these cities, and the Moss costs about 10k a stack on my server, so I don't want to go over the limit if i dont have to. Thank You

Well, duh.

Should know by now that increasing the 3 nations fame (Windy, Sandy and Bastok), lowers Tenshodo fame.

the fact of the matter is that this does work but... only nominal fame is given for the cheaper items like the millicorn and cabbage. YOU GET TONS OF FAME for the Boyahda Moss. had 0 fame in san' deoria and was doing the trial size summoner quests so i did bout 10 stacks of corn got 2 levels of fame then 10 stacks of cabbage got 1 more level. THEN 15 stacks of moss and bam 4 levels, so i then did 15 more stacks and maxed fame out ( i know i only needed level 3 fame but i was already there ^^)

let's re-word this to make it more...logical...and correct....

you did the quest through corn about 40 times ([12 times 10] divided by 3) and got 2 fame levels.

you did the quest through cabbage 24 times ([12 times 10] divided by 5) and got 1 fame level.

you did the quest through moss 180 times ([12 * 15] divided by 1) and got 4 fame levels...


So..for million corn, it takes about 20 questings for a level. For cabbage , it takes about 20 questings per level. For moss, it takes about 45 questing per level....

You would in theory Get tons of Fame from trading the Moss, For each stack of Moss is equivalent to trading 3 stacks of millicorn or 6 stacks of Cabbage.
