Summary

The Brugaire Consortium wants you to smuggle a package onto the airship and take it to the Tenshodo in Jeuno.

Walkthrough

You must be rank 5 or purchased an Airship Pass in order to receive this quest. You must already be a member of the Tenshodo to recieve this quest. Tenshodo fame might be required for this quest also, so keep that in mind;

Portaure in Cargo Room B of Port San D'Oria wants you to smuggle some goods to Jeuno. After accepting his request, you receive a key item, "Brugaire Goods". You must take the Airship from San d'Oria to Jeuno with this quest. Warp I or riding on a Chocobo will damage the goods and you will be sent back.

Board the Airship to Jeuno and once you arrive, you will have to pass through customs.

  • There is a chance you will be caught and arrested. Your goods will be confiscated and your airship pass revoked for a period of time.
  • If you do happen to get through customs (you will see a message stating, "You have cleared customs.")
Proceed to Lower Jeuno's Tenshodo headquarters, the Neptune's Spire. Speak with Yin Pocanakhu and she will thank you and tell you to return to Portaure.

After you return, you receive 1,000 gil and the ever popular Tenshodo fame.

I highly recommend this quest if your lvl is less than 50DD or 70 mages. You make about 1.3 k per 12 min with sub blm or blm 17. And get norg fame. after about 100 trip you will get hero fame, assming that you don't need fame quick, it the best way to go. I do it right before i go to bed every night. Take about 4 months but it is worth it bc you barely need to do anything.

Process: hp port sandy, get the quest, airship (if clear) go to trade it, warp back then repeat till get caught (note: you only have 3 min to do the running). If you fail just go to sleep or something. It does take a lot of time but if you don't reall care about getting fame quick this is the best way to go. If you do it perfectly you can get 5 trips per hour.

it totally beat my 500 necklace on main character. Since my mule is lvl 17 blm. and only stay in jueno any way for selling suff.

Otherwise if you are high lvl, just do necklace and harvest or buy zinc.

Good Luck!!

I never even knew you could get caught until it happened to me at around 2:30 or 3:00pm today(EST). So I went to ask.com to find out the time in Japan...gotta wait til like 10pm tonight then, if the suspension period is until midnight Japanese time. I prolly won't do this quest again lol. I have done this quest about 20 times and it never happened to me before today. If you guys coulda seen the look on my face when the NPC was like "Stop right there!". And what sucked(at the time) was that I was trying to get back to Sandy to tend to my little chocobo-chick! So I had to choco home instead.

Patiently waiting for the ban to be lifted

I do this quest all the time with my BLM for Norg fame. It's quite obvious and simple, but all u have to do is go through customs. No need to waste time riding the airship. Warp to Jeuno and procede to the San d'Oria Port, you'll still have to pay the 200 gil to pass through, but then just simply go to the arrivals door and clear customs! It's quite easy and has worked for me every time.

This is how i did this quest:

Talked with the quest giver and walked away.
When i was outside the warehouse i didnt talk to anyone. I even ignored ppl that /tell me.
I didnt run, i walked normal.
At the Airship dock San d'Oria i didnt speak to the npc but with the door to enter the dock.
I was on airship and didnt move.
I came on the jeuno dock. I walked normal (Dont run) to the exit and talked with the door again. Then i walked slowly to the Tenshodo and delivered the item.
Dunno if this is the best thing to do but it worked for me. It can be i had just luck so i dont say this is the good thing to do.

For those who haven't figured it out, there's a pretty easy way to do this quest. The key lies in which you select at the Port San d'Oria airship departures entrance. I figured this out one night while I was bored.

It's quite simple really. If you examine the door, do the same thing when you reach Port Jeuno. Or, if you talk to the person next to the door, do that when you reach Port Jeuno.

It's worked for me 100% of the time since I've tried it.

Just confirming that charjer's discovery has been true for me as well.

If you depart by the door, then arrive by the door. If you depart by the NPC, then arrive by the NPC.

100% success! ^_^ Thank you, charjer, for sharing that discovery.

EDIT: *sigh* I spoke too soon. Just after posting this I read the reply below me, and he's right. Door-to-door is not 100%, I just got busted ; ;

Guess I'll try sticking Person-to-person.

Absolute luck. For the third time in a row I've gone NPC > NPC and got caught. It was a nice observation that worked for me once, but I'm now 2/5 and that's hardly 100%. *sigh*

Thanks for trying, but for future smugglers, I'd suggest only trying this before you go to bed or something. Going all day w/o outbound flights from Jeuno sucks major ***.

actualy the best time to do this quest would be before midnight Jappanese time as that is when everything rests itself like with 2 hours. but yeah this mthod doesnt work 100% of the time. for me its 90% im 9/10 and i was stupid enough to do this at lunch time EST which means i had to wait 24 hours about.

I've done Person > Person many times and never got caught, I personally have never gone Door > door, but when I explained to someone how to do it they went door > door and got caught. so so far person > person is 100% but door > door isn't.

EDIT: now I got caught. After 10-12 runs and getting the price of rice balls from 158-155 (checked before the run that I got caught). Now I'm a little sleepy so I'm only 80%-90% sure that I went person > person so there's still a possibility it works 100%.

Perhaps what you have to do changes with your fame rank or maybe there's some sort of thing that like ballances between the returning the item quest and this. idk I'm taking shots in the dark.

but anyway. This method seemed to work the vast majority of the time at the least

I unlocked NIN recently and decided to level up Tenshodo fame, there's no way I'm dropping 800k on Utsusemi. I've done this quest six times and been caught four. It's just not worth. I'm gonna stick with murdering the Yagudo in Giddeus with THF sub. I can pick up 25-30 necklaces in less than an hour.

If what someone said is true about being able to board in the cities,just not in jeuno,it seems the best way to do the quest is to set hp in san d. Then you do the quest,if you get caught,who cares. Warp back and do it again.

Edit: I tried it,it doenst work. He wont give you the quest again if you are banned from the airship. He tells you to wait intill the ban is lifted.

Since a couple of people are too lazy to read down:)

Revokation period:
Airship pass is revoked until midnight in Japan. Thats 17:00 CEST (my timezone) and 16:00 GMT. I dunno the US times (you got so many timezones...) but u can figure it out with GMT.

(If you get caught at 15:59 GMT then indeed ur pass is only revoked for one minute!)

Completing the quest:
You need to go through the customs in Jeuno only then will Yin Pocanakhu accept the package. In other words you might speed it up (by warping to jeuno and then going into San departures and back out through customs) but u can't cheat it (you will always have to go through customs and there is a chance u get caught).

Rewards:
This quest rewards you 1000 gil and Tenshodo fame. (As far as I know you do not lose or gain any other fame)

Requirements:
Airshippas (Rank 5) and I think San d'Oria fame level 5 or 6. I used to have a post here with the exact fame but it got purged and I don't really remember (it's been more then a year ago).
Posibly you need to complete the following quest:

If you fail to clear customes, you'll get your pass back w/ in 1 RL day. Also heard that if you fail to clear to customes, you lose fame. Only rumor so take that for what ity's worth.

Ok Got this quest today and did it two times in a row...no problem. Something that I noticed is that Eddy has changed what he says to me before I board the Airship. He used to offer A Discerning Eye but when I have the package on me he only says that he is there to keep an eye out for suspicious individuals. Has anyone else noticed this. Could Charisma level have anything to do with the ability to not get caught?

He will say he is keeping an eye out if you started the quest in another port (bastok, windurst) but never gave the package to anyone. You need to go back to whatever person gave you the package and give it back to him to clear the quest.

Maybe it's cause i'm a Mithra? I never do anything special, i just never get caught ^^. One i time i went through customs with the package three times on one repitition and still didnt get "busted". Oh well, i'll just count my blessings i guess. ^^ good luck to everyone out there!

Just tried it. Didn't work for me ><

I'm 0/8 on this stupid quest now, and it's really starting to p*ss me off.

Tried with normal armor, tried with a horrible mish-mash of armor (like lizard helm, royal footman's boots, magna gear... looked gaudy lol), different times of days, tried no communication with anything not required (not even tells/party/linkshell/etc.. just the doors to get into and out of the airship.)... and always "busted!"

I could probably do this a hundred times and still always get caught. There's a reason I only do this if I'm about to log for the night.

EDIT: Wait... I wonder if job has anything to do with this. I think every time I tried, I was a DRK as far as I remember. I wonder if that may have something to do with it.

Your task is to not look "suspicious". So that means not trying to wear any mishmash armor to look gaudy. I wore a full set of Republic gear and got in with no problem.

This quest works a little differently than you might expect it to. This quest uses 1 trigger. By this mean that the quest keeps a true or false value if you have gone through customs or not. You can warp, use a chocobo, whatever while doing this quest, just as long as you go through the customs in Jeuno.
Here's what I mean: I set my homepoint in Lower Jeuno, take the airship to Port San d'Oria, activate the quest, WARP back to Jeuno, go into the San d'Oria airship departures area, exit through the arrivals area, and it tells me if I've either cleared customs, or I get caught. From there I dump the goods off at the Neptune Spire if I still have them (and they accept them) and I go back to sandy to finish the quest.

I got caught on my first try, but the message said that I am temporarily unable to board airships in Jeuno. Does that mean I can still board from the starting cities?

Edit: Okay. I just tried flying from San d'Oria and they let me through the departure gate, so I guess you just can't fly from Jeuno to the cities. Haven't tried Kazham yet, though I don't think it would make a difference since getting to Kazham involves a different airship pass.

I did this 3 times in a row just fine, I believe it was 4th time I got caught. Thats what a lot of people say, 3 strikes your out.

Is it true doing this lowers your fame in other places though? Or just from getting caught or what?

Ok here is my situation. I am getting tenshodo fame. (sorry if i spelled it wrong) and i decide i am tired of walking or chocoboing it. So i go see what i have to do to get Rank 5. 2 hours later i finaly get the quests. So i start got a few key items needed one more. The qudav charm. You know whatever i will have a LS buddy help me. well that doesnt work out i end up meeting a friend and killing the mob that drops the charm. I leave for jeuno. finaly get there (because i had to walk) set my HP there sub BLM and chocobo back to beaduex. Got the magicte (realy easy) and then went to castle ozotroja. I hate this place, anyways so i am going through my invisible is about to wear off so i try to cast again i cant! so i run away and heal. get mp full and walk off took a wrong turn went into the wrong room got aggro warped back and then had to chocobo again. Finaly i get back do it right after waiting for the mobs there to turn there backs so i can open the door and i get the magicte. Then to Davoi, this had to be the easiest of them all. I walked to exactly where i was soposed to go stood there (invisible of course) untill the 2 lvl 50 mobs turned there backs and i entered. got that magicte. warped back to jeuno. got the pass got the rank got the gil went back to sandy like it said and then wanted to go raise tenshodo fame. so i get this quest get the other quest (easy 500 gil) and board the airship.

Well that's a big long story you got there that doesn't really seem to have anything to do with anything... so you explained to everyone how annoying rank 5 is, and anyone who can actually get this quest already knows that, you failed the quest, and then you went to the AH and sold stuff, why you mentioned the AH thing i still dunno unless you wanted to buy another license which would be odd... The only part of that story that really mattered was the message "I got caught when I tried this" and the rest is just garbage. Props to Izopyn.

It says chocobo, and warping isn't allowed. Is running or death warping okay to do?

I decided to do this quest for the first time last night. Busted on my first try. lol

Don't forget to do this quest (A Discerning Individual) for an extra 500 Gil:

The easiest and cheapest way to build Norg fame is this quest (Mihgo's Amigo) in Windhurst:

Has anyone tested if this quest is easier or harder depending on time of day? Could it be that at night you can get through easier? Or is it totally random?

I have done this quest once, and of course i got caught. I dont think i have any Norg fame since i have not been to Norg, but i do have a Level 5 Fame in Sandy. So you guys decide. I'm going to try this quest again, and if i make it through customs i'll be lucky.

Airship pass is revoked until midnight in Japan. Thats 17:00 CEST (my timezone) and 16:00 GMT. I dunno the US times (you got so many timezones...) but u can figure it out with GMT.

(If you get caught at 15:59 GMT then indeed ur pass is only revoked for one minute!)

Actually I think it's backwards.
Japan's Midnight is

EST 10:00 AM - EDT 11:00 AM
CST 9:00 AM - CDT 10:00 AM
MST 8:00 AM - MDT 9:00 AM
PST 7:00 AM - PDT 8:00 AM

Not sure if the other time zones even observe Daylight Savings Time (which is during the summer). But those are it. Remember as you head east, it gets later, not earlier.

Did this quest 3 times in a row today. Didn't get caught once. Each time did the delivery of the package to the dude on the airship also so made 3.9k minus the cost of the airship. Would warp back right after i got to Jeuno in time to get on the airship again.

It says your airship pass is revoked "for some time." Has anyone tried to figure out for how long?

Also, does this lower your Jeuno fame? (some quests DO lower fame in other areas while increasing it in another)

I can do it up to 10 times sometimes without being busted. Usually busted the 4rd time or something.

But the best thing is. U get Tenshodo fame. I've been doing this quest from time to time for 2 months now and riceballs cost me 148 gil.

Ok it builds fame slowly but it doesn't suck ur money like the Zinc Ore Quest. Instead u make money.

About repeating this quest:

The change u get caught is really random. Most of the time I get caught within 3 runs. My max is 8 runs in a row.

It is posible to do this quest every 15 minutes (which is everytime the ship goes from San d'Oria to Jeuno).
U need a BLM level 17 or a LVL 1 job (MNK in my case).



Set HP at Port San d'Oria (close to zone to North),

DO

Get the quest,

goto port and pay 200 gil,

get the quest from eddy
(remember Hair Color, Hat or headband color/shape, trousers pattern and color, gloves type/shape)

get on the ship,

find eddies person and talk and choose yes,

arrive in Jeuno,

go through customs,

run to Tenshodo HQ (low Jeuno) and give the goods,

Warp (BLM17) or Ghettowarp in Qufim (walk to port, walk to Qufim, attack the first bats or Dancing Weapon u find, believe me it's faster than Rolanberry)

LOOP




For the requirements to do this quest read my previous post (2 posts down).

I think I've screwed this up about every possible way. Even if you have already "damaged" the package, you can *still* lose your airship pass by going through customs, no matter which port you go through. I once forgot to drop off the package after successfully going through customs the first time. When I realized my mistake, talking to the quest giver would not give me a new package, and I was forced to take a trip to Jeuno to attempt to drop it off again (which is when I got caught).

This is probably one of the slowest fame builders of all for Norg, since you can really only do it once a day. So, if you need fame in a hurry, look at one of the other quests that give Tenshodo fame.

And yes, the fame required to get this quest is dependant on Sandorian fame. I would guess lvl 3 fame or better. I used this quest almost exclusively to raise my Norg fame (2 zinc quests, 1 necklace quest... and lvl 3 fame in Norg after smuggling every night for a few weeks).

Never did anything more for the Consortium then becoming a member.

My rank is 5 ofcos. (Also finnished my chat with Destin in the Castle back in San d'Oria)

I'm lvl 30 WHM (my highest Job).

[edit (after update of fame guide)]
U need San d'Orian fame level 5. See below.

Check fame with Namonutice in (K-6) in Southern San d'Oria.



San d'Oria fame levels:

1 - Hmm... *soandso*, you say? No, never heard that name.
2 - *soandso*....? Hmm... I might have heard that name before. Then again, maybe not.
3 - Ah, *soandso*. That is a name I often hear. People speak well of you!
4 - *soandso*! You have become well known in these parts!
5 - Ah, *soandso*! You are famous in our kingdom! Of you no ill is spoke (Required level for this quest)
6 - *soandso*! I would venture that much the kingdom has heard your name! And your reputation sparkles
7 - Hello *soandso*. Practically all of the kingdom has heard of you now. What's more, your reputation is stellar.
8 - *soandso*! People are talking about you! Every infant in his cradle knows your name! And they hold you in highest regard!
9 - Sir *soandso*! There isn't a soul in the kingdom that doesn't consider you a hero!

Same here. San d'Orian fame is DEFINITELY required for this quest (As people have made perfectly obvious above in earlier posts).

My San d'Orian fame isn't very high at the moment (I've basically done however many repeatable quests that were required to obtain the Drain scroll), and then I stopped. I did the other quest in Port San d'Oria, in Cargo Room B, where you obtain a Lauan Shield, and I still couldn't get this quest.

My Riceballs in Neptune's Spire are 152g, as well, so tenshodo fame has *nothing* to do with this.

For some reason I can't get the quest. I have rank 5 and the airship pass. I also have a little tenshodo fame (10-11 completed yagudo necklace quests). All he says when I talk to him is "Our days of glory are gone forever." Anyone know what to do?

misconceptions abt quest
# Apr 20 2004 at 5:54 PM Rating: Decent
4 posts
I have done the quest before and would like to clear up any misconceptions anyone has about this quest.

First of all.....getting this quest requires rank 5...because u are gonna be taking an airship. Using warp or teleport at any point during the air-journey will result in failure in the quest.

After dropping off the package by speaking to Yin-(something) at Tenshodo HQ in lower jueno (Helspires tavern), u are free to travel by any means back to Port Sandoria and speak with the guy in Cargo room B who gave u the quest. I used warp...so much faster and convinient :)

If u happen to get caught, your airpass will be revoked....the timing when u get it back is correct as to what is listed above.

In addition.....there is another package drop quest inside the airship. Finding the right person will grant you 500G. So in doing this quest....if all goes well....u can earn 1000+500 =1500 Gil ,minus the 200Gil airfare giving u 1300Gil total. Pretty decent for 10mins work, i would say :)

A little update:

I started with rice balls at 166. After doing this quest only once or twice and finishing the Samurai quest, I was down to 164.

I attempted this quest a total of 36 times, successfully making it through customs 26 times. The post below is correct, airship pass is restored at 11am EST daily, so doing this quest a bunch of times early in the morning causes the least problems for your other in-game activities.

After 26 successful completions of this quest--and maybe 3 completions of the necklace quest--my rice balls were down to 156, and I was able to activate all five ninjitsu quests in Norg.

Hope this helps.

I finally got this quest, so I'll share what I've done.

Unique quests in San d'Oria: 29 (with a few repetitions of the bat wings quest)
Norg: 0 (still working on Black Market and Samurai flag)
Bead necklaces and zinc ores: a few each
Price of Rice Ball: 166 gil

I tried two days ago and couldn't get the quest. The only thing that changed was the number of San d'Orian quests. I tried to activate every few quests; at 25 it didn't work.
