Head to Yhoator Jungle and examine the ??? at the top center of the (F-8), (G-8), (G-7), or (E-9). Once you find the ??? the key item becomes a Barrel of Opo-Opo Brew.

Level requirement

Ok, I didn't read every post here, so I don't know if this has been said before...

For those of you who wanna do these Norg quests with your mules to get some extra money, fame is not enough. You have to be lvl 10 or higher. I learnt that a while back when I tried doing the mea quest as lvl 8 or so, and I had fame lvl 7 (you need fame lvl 4 to flag mea) >.> But anyway, I flagged all the quests in Norg that I wanted, then I went out to gather items. And since I was done with my mule anyway, I didn't bother with instant warp or anything, I just blood ported. So I come back to Norg, deleveled to 9, to collect my bounty, but that **** woman would not take the brew x.x But since I managed to finish the other quests, I figured it was my lvl she didn't like. So I head out, get lvl 10 back, then return to the opo opo lady. And sure enough, "Oh the texture, the smell.." or whatever she says; hojo quest was done.

Enjoy your new spell :)
Simple really

For any new Ninja's out there I have a little tidbit I'll add to this quests posts.

If you look on your map while searching for this keep one thing in mind. You will see 3 strange looking trees on the map, located in F-8, G-8, and H-8, those are the 3 places I know where the ??? spawns(for sure). I haven't seen it spawn in the G-7 or the E-9 as post in the description given by Alla.

Good luck.

This was so friggin simple... I walked to Norg, choc'ed out to the nearest ??? in Yhoator, and walked back to Norg. WTF is so hard... it's all the luck of the draw and random spawn points.

I zoned into Yhoator on my choco using the second exit from the top in Yuhtunga. Took the first right and the first left and went to the blue dot there. Found a logging point and a ???, got my brew and a maple log. This took all of 40 seconds upon zoning into Yhoator.

I just did it. Basically what I do is to put all the blue dots given into my FFXi map using markers. Then I just went thru everyone of them and I find it within an minutes (like half an hour).

First, I didn't know from the quest description until I read further down the page: The ??? spawns where logging points usually do.

Tomoe posted this excellent map:
http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown-Bingo/1869/MAP-Yhoator.htm
Rate him up, it's extremely helpful!

Second, if you can walk around here without needing Invis to avoid aggro (65+ probably, I'm 70 and everything is {Too Weak}), then bring your logging gear and some axes. Might as well make some money while you run around looking for this thing. And there were three other people looking for it while I was, so I probably missed it a few times.

Lastly, sure it's kind of annoying, but the scroll is a necessity for you if you're a NIN and if you're not then you're getting a good bit of gil for running around. :-)

This has to be one of the most horrible quests in the game.... i seriously wonder why i pay 13bucks a month to wonder around like a jackass in yhoator jungle for this... so far been at it for 4 hours and no spawn... using map posted as reference... i must have the most horrible luck in the world... i could have made the 200k to buy the scroll in the time it took me to look for this stupid thing.... if your like me, and constantly have horrible luck... do youself a favor and buy this stupid thing. whatever happened to the good ol days when you fought monsters for items >.< ahhh well enough of my ranting

I posted this a year ago, but it seems my post has been pruned so I'll repost.

The blue dots in this map
http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown-Bingo/1869/MAP-Yhoator.htm
are the posible locations of the ???.

As ruizkids also pointed out.

Looked for about 30 mins and found it at the last spawn I checked, the southernmost. Odd thing, turns out when I checked it, I didn't have the key item. That's a heart breaker. Make sure to start the quests before you... quest.

okay so I'm getting really frustrated I looked in all the afore mentioned spots to get the brew so I decide I'm going to go to norg to grab a chocobo because I'm tired of walking and having to sneak and invis myself (52 whm) so I took a wrong turn to go to the next jungle (no suprise there for me) and I go by a big tree and I check it... logging point. I figure "great it took me forever to find a logging point for that stupid Bastok quest but now I find one easy" but as I scroll a little more... there's the **** ??? w00t brewskies all around! G-9 for me.

I had this quest opened and looked for the ??? several times, as a whm with tele-yhoat I wandered around looking for it even with the locations from alla. then one day when heading to norg ??? was there and ding brew aquired. i recommend revisiting the pos listed until it pops. it obviously moves and respawns, and I assume there is a wait time til respawn or the ??? moves fairly quickly. use patience for success.
