Dont waste your time redoing this quest to gain fame, redo the Selbina quest "Only the Best" instead. It gives Bastok, Sandy and Jeuno fame.
Set HP in Sandy, buy cabbage at Raimbroy's Groceries (fill up your inventory), chocobo to Selbina, trade and warp back. Rinse and repeat.

I did this quest 4 times and went from 0 to 1 in fame. Now I have done this quest about 12 times and still stuck at fame 1. Anyone know how many you have to do to get to fame 2? I should have just done the moss turn in.

I have done this quest more times than I have killed a Mandragora....Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration. But, I have taken my fame almost to Hero status with this, and I have noticed that after my long stint in Jeuno, I can no longer get the airship quests from the other nations Airship Travel Agency. You know the one, take the wallet, and find the missing passenger. I have also been denied other quests that have minimal fame requirements, and my fame used to be very high in all nations but San D'Oria.

Can anyone confirm that this Quest reduces fame in other nations?
insanely easy

First time I ever did it, I got the quest at 18:05, and finished at 19:21. I'm going for a new record next time. :P Though I imagine a 73+ BRD or a 25+ THF would kick my ****.

All the lamps are on the right side of the walkway through lower jeuno as you head towards rolanberry. Don't forget that before you go down the stairway, there is a lamp past the stairs on the ledge. There's another one behind you as you come back up the stairs again on the ledge behind you.

EDIT: Did it again, finished 19:12. >:D

EDIT: Started facing the first streetlamp and targeting Zauko. Made tons of mistakes but did a few things better, such as quicken the start of the quest. 19:07. Next time I do this quest, I think I can do sub-19... so long as the **** 2nd streetlamp isn't surrounded by people. >_> Speed runs are fun! XD

EDIT: I've done this 5-6 times now (I'm losing track), and on my best run yet where I think I did everything really well, I only managed 19:02. That IS under an hour as the quest starts at 18:05, but still not finishing before 19:00. Pretty much the only main factor now is lag from having so many people crowd the Jeuno AH.

If you do the quest more than once you can get the key item that tells you when he needs help. It's cheap Jeuno fame, but there's certainly better ways to get your Jeuno fame up. :P

Alright, I've done this quest a couple times, but an LS member does it at every chance he gets. He loves announcing it in the LS. Lol.

You can obtain the quest just after 18:00 by talking to Zauko, but you can't start lighting lamps til 21:00.

Now I'm laughing my @ss off because my buddy has done it so many times that Zauko has actually given him a key item that informs you when the lights need lit. Lol! I'm guessing you hafta do the quest a certain number of times before he gives you this.

Just do the quest twice and Zauko offers to give you the key item. It is called "Lamp Lighter's membership card".

Also I will confirm after the update you do not have to wait until 2100 to start lighting lamps. You can do it after he gives it to you.

I was wondering around wasting time to get my Choco (Chicken) license when I happen to talk to Zauko. It was about 20:30 and he gave me the quest. The lamps are all right there, go to them and click on them. An option pops up and you activate them. Anyways, I lit them all except one which happened to be right next to Zauko. Did it all in about 1:10 game time. Spoke to Zauko (22:10) Quest complete and he said I gained experience. What does mean exp for leveling or exp for ranking? I figured for ranking. I am gonna repeat it to see if I can do it faster. Oh yes, I did get my Chicken License, bonfide Bronco Chicken Rider...hmmm that should be my title...

Well, I've done this quest twice now. The third time though, when I started lighting the torches, my stupic computer desides to disconnect... I quickly reconnect, light another torch, and then BOOM! Computer disconnects again! By this time I am swearring... I get back on, to see I have about 30 mins game time to light the last 6 torches(man I wish i had flee). So I start rushing, then it hits 1:00 JUST as I target the last torch and go to push enter, too late... /cry

# Apr 15 2004 at 9:10 AM Rating: Decent

Okay, here's the deal. By at least 16:00 you should be able to snag this quest if no one else has. You can't start LIGHTING the lamps til 9 o'clock (that's 21:00 in game-time). You have plenty of time (until 1:00, or 4 game hours) to run thru Lower Jeuno sticking to the right-hand wall and lighting all 12 lamps. So you have to wait around a bit from 16:00-21:00 because it isn't dark enough yet to light the lamps. If you get the quest, just stand in front of that first one by Zauko and start clicking on it around 21:00. Then run down, light 'em all, and talk to him again.

Interesting note: the first time I did this quest, I DIDN'T get the Torchbearer title. I still had my "Pickpocket Pincher" title from the last quest I'd done, which was in San D'oria. The second time I did the quest, I did get the "Torchbearer" title. Very strange.

nope, from 18:00 you can get the quest, and then indeed you cant light the streetlights till 21:00

If you forget to light the streetlights (i forgot it at least 4 times after getting the quest lol) he'll tell you he's disappointed in you the next time you talk to him.

Dunno if that last part affects your fame or not :(

Lamp Positions & Guard
# Dec 12 2003 at 10:23 AM Rating: Excellent
This might not be necessary but... for those who are lost and confused about this simple quest...

Zauko is the guard in the open street before entering the passage way to Mog House / Upper Jeuno / Port Jeuno

The 12 lamps can be lit in a row:
1 by Zauko (I-6)
1 by Commerce Chamber, near the fountain (I-7)
1 by Commerce Chamber, on the other side of the building (H-7)
2 lamps next to the stairs in H-8 (facing the ocean)
1 across from "Waag-Deeg's Magic" (Magic Shop)
1 across from "Muckvix's Junk Shop" (Goblin Shop)
1 lamp next to the stairs (G-9)
1 lamp next to the stairs (G-10)
3 lamps in a row, facing the ocean, next to the exit, in (G-10), (F-10), & (F-11)

Is it really true that only one person in the whole entire sever can only do this quest at a time? Wow...that must really suck. I hope no one knows about this quest XD. Is the reward just Jeuno Fame? As in our starting fame to do other quests in the Jeuno area?

Yes, it's absolutely true - one person per game day. It's pretty easy to get it in the non-primetime hours though, and you can still try to "snatch" it even when others are competing to get it right at 6pm.

The lamposts are "activatable" objects, similar to ??? points, or direction signposts. If you have the quest, you will be given the option of lighting the lampost when you click on and activate them.

u start the quest at 18:00 but u can't light the street lamps untill 2100... if you read what Zauko says you wouldn't have these questions.

Only ONE person per in game day can do this quest so if you can't get it, that means someone has already gotten the mission from Zauko, so your best option is to come back later and try your luck.

Activating the street lamps can be done by clicking the 'lever switch' on the lamp post and pressing 'Enter' when given the option to "light the street lamp - yes or no"

hope this helps you
