If you want to befriend the infamous Cat Burglar, then you'll have to give her something she likes.

Tenshodo rep didn't take nearly as long as I thought!

I just finished getting to level 4 tenshodo. I went 32 thief/nin with two swords, a warp scroll and otherwise naked, went around one-shotting everything in giddeus until I had 27 necklaces with a 28th in the queue (dropped all other loot.) Use the scroll (28th drops into inventory,) turn them in, lather rinse repeat. Was also grabbing them off the auction house as they appeared so I was turning in about 32 or 36 per trip. Took about 4 hours total. Thought 212 necklaces would take much longer!

Now on to Norg, I wants me Utsusemi!

I am a level 70 Thief.
I just completed the Thief AF Quest for Rogue's Bonnet. I received the bonnet and the quest is complete.
I am Bastokian, so I am definitely not on Windurst Mission 2-1.
I spoke with Nanaa Mihgo and her stoopid friend Cha Lebagta and then Nanaa Mihgo again.
What gives? Can anybody shed some light on the subject? I'm sitting on seriously about 100 Yag Necklaces here and I can't really move on with my life until I do something with them and I sure as shyters ain't gonna NPC them or Auction them off after all that hard working farming them! Any advice would help. :)

Do the NIN and/or SAM quests give some Tenshodo fame to reduce the number of Bead Necklaces I need to farm?? Even a little extra helps... o.O

while there are differing numbers for the requirement of yagudo necklaces to acheive fame rank 4 for ninja scrolls. realize this, you must first build up fame in other areas. jueno particularly. why? many people try to raise their fame in each country at the same time. if you do the selbina quest "only the best" and trade Boyahda moss it will raise jeuno bastok and sandy fame but Lower norg fame. so be careful you may be raising and lowering your norg fame and working against yourself. i don't know if any norg quest will alter the other cities fame.

i did some necklaces in , but i forgot to count them or how many times i did that quest , so now i need to do it all over AGAIN Counting from 0.

Well what i figured out is that this quest is the MOST BORING SLOWGA Quest EVEER !!!!!!!!!!!!!

and it is frustrating to do it

i did the math and most ppl say 220 or 250

ok 220 is divisible by 4

But 250 is not

So i figure out that it must Be 252 Neclaces = 63 Times this quest should be done ^-^; ALOT >.<

HOPEFULLY i am right and it works cuz i am running out of :

1st-TIME (NIN=11 almost 12)

2nd-Patience (GODDAMIT , i should have counted them all ^^;;;;)

3rd-Money (i got down from 100k that i did in 1 day to having 0 gil ^^;;; ops....)

4th-ppl to help me (Everyone is busy doing something else ;-;)

5th-I didn't sleep to do this quest and SO FAR I got 8 necklaces turn in and 14 Necklaces on my WAR32/NIN11

14/35 slots in my bag

it will be a long BORING QUEST >.<

Luckyly i have my wife and Friends to talk to

Wish me luck

And after it i will need to go to NORG with someone to grab the UTSUMI : ICHI QUEST (IT IS A HARD ONE IMO) do it (hopefully someone will help me ) and get it

Then i think i need to do another quest for those TOOL BAGS >.< TOO MUCH ><


And it is 4:36 in the morning ATM , i will go to sleep , and eat a Sandwish ^_^



I HATE THIS QUEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is stupid. this cant simply isnt as simple as it says it is.

i talked to nanaa and she gave me some letter to take to the tenshodo. so i did that, and came back and she says "see u in jeuno". i talked to her henchman, all she says is something useless about jeuno. there is no quest flagged and noone asks me for necklaces.

i am a tenshodo member and i have been to aht urghan. ive spoken to everyone i know that has done this quest and noone can tell me why i cant trade my necklaces.

any ideas?

to answer my own question, i had flagged the THF AF1 armor quest without realising. The Letter from the Tenshodo that nanaa gave me is a key item that i can't find on this site.

So if you have the same problem as me, you have to do the THF AF1 armor quest before you can trade your necklaces. You will only flag this quest if u talk to nanaa while a THF40+ (i believe - you certainly wont flag it as any other job), so watch out if u go farming your necklaces with a higher level thief.

Once you have done AF1 (reward is Marauder's knife - a nice DEX+/AGI+ dagger), you will be able to trade your necklaces again.

Hope this clears up questions about this, i have seen earlier posts asking the same question but with no response, so yeah. thats it.

Rice Balls...

I know this has been stated on threads related to Norg fame a buzillion times, but for people new to raising Norg fame: NO SPECIFIC RICE BALL PRICE IS A GAUGE FOR YOUR NORG FAME! All NPC prices are influenced by fame AND CHARISMA. So your rice ball price at Norg fame 4 for a level 10 galka warrior is going to be vastly different from say, a level 60 hume bard with the same amount of Norg fame.

My advice, if you're going for utsusemi, is this: Be patient, do your 180 necklaces, the zinc ore quest a couple times, do the lower-fame-required nin scroll quests(tonko, kurayami, etc...) and you should be fine.

Seriously, why would you bother going to jeuno to check your norg fame anyway if you're doing necklaces. That takes you halfway to norg anyway, and if you're still low on fame you have to turn around and go back to windy anyway. Just spend that wasted time farming more beads/zinc ore. You can never have too much fame.

ok people. I finally finished this quest and got norg fame 4. The tables I see everywhere are dead wrong. It took me 220 necklaces to get my riceball price down to 152. I checked in norg when my price was 154 and I still had fame 3. So once your price is 152 you have norg fame 4. (Unsure about 153)

ok i just did another run of 16 necklaces and checked my riceball price in jeuno, it was 160. According to everything i've read online 160 is the start of norg fame 4, so i went to norg to start the utsusemi quest and checked my fame just to be sure i was lvl 4. Apparently I was still only fame 3 and couldnt get the quest. So just to warn you all, those prices, in related to your norg fame, probably aren't right
yag necklaces

OK just started this quest today, and I've turned in 80 necklaces. The riceball price is 161. That means im 1 gil away from getting fame 4. So either I'm somehow lucky and it won't take me 200+ necklaces, or it takes alot more necklaces to get a higher fame.

...if that makes any sense.

This is a huge load of crap! I talked to nanaa mihgo, and she keeps telling me to "Go to Jeuno Tenshodo headquarters".

I've been told I don't have to, and that everyone in my LS was never told to do this, and also that I DON'T need a tenshodo invite. And when I try to trade her four yagudo necklaces, NOTHING HAPPENS. Also, after talking to the two mithrans next to her, the two other crime-kitties, she STILL won't accept my necklaces, and says the same thing every time. I want to BEAT THE **** OUT OF HER

Read this thread and was very scared by people going on about how it takes far more that 200 necklaces. Well i kept an exact record of what i did:

Zinc ore quest in Bastok twice
Exactly 200 Yagudo Bead necklaces in Windurst
Ninja flag quest

These are the only things i did and it was enough to reduce the price of Riceballs in Neptune's Spire to 155gil (ie Tenshodo Fame 4).
It was enough fame to do all four ninja scroll quests (including Utsusemi of course) and receive the tuning fork of water.

My advice, do as many gobbiebag quests as you can, pick a high level melee job with thf sub and get to work! It took me about 6 hours to get the fame so it isnt as bad as some people make out!

I want to make it VERY clear that it takes FAR more than 200 necklaces to achieve enough norg fame for Utsusemei: Ichi. I farmed them over a year ago, and it took WELL over 400, now, I'm helping my gf farm them and am keeping an EXACT track of them, and the price of rice balls at neptunes spire to see where it stands. As of right now, she has turned in EXACTLY 224, and rice balls are STILL 161gil each! thats WAY off from the goal still, so this will EASILY take more than 400 necklaces. I dont know if something has been changed on the game for calculating fame for norg, but if it has, it has been in effect for a very logn time, since I came up with the same numbers over a year ago. Anyway, I want to say, those of you who say 200 ARE COMPLETELY FULL OF BS, and are going off of hear-say! Go help a friend, and keep count, and you will see EXACTLY what I'm talking about. As for how to attain this RIDICULOUSLY long goal, I suggest havign your inv maxed out (60 slots) and go with as much pace open as possible, bring a friend, and BOTH sub thf for TRH, and you will accomplish the goal much sooner, but I still say it is RIDICULOUS to get well over 400 of these turned in JUST to OPEN UP the quest. I know some things in a game like this SHOULD be challenging, but THIS IS A GAME, and it's number one priority is to be FUN for the players!!! And hunting 400+ necklaces is NOT fun, it's mindless, boring, and repetitive, and SE should be ashamed of themselves to make building norg fame such a sickening chore!

Very good advice. But it's a little differant for some people, because they might have done other quests, Like the zinc ores in Bastok, beforehand, anf may have a smidgen more fame then people who start fresh.

I've been checking the amount of Necklaces it took for me and a few friends each to do the quest, and it came out to roughly 250's for about 3 of my friends, and I. Sometimes reaching into the 270's for another few friends.

Just a thought, but that's what I found. :)

You sure? I kept track of the numeber I farmed and I did 200 excatly and had the riceballs down to 153 which I believe is Fame 5 according to ffxi.cannotlinkto.

When I did it I had a assistant and we cleared the invent out and most of the Yag population but we did it in a night. Yes it's boring, repetitive but in the end if you plan to use thief it's worth it

...Yagudo Piper casts Knights Minne...-mumble- -mumble- Armann obtains a circlet..what -shakes- oh it was just a dream...

still traumatized by farming these as you can see but great way to get Norg fame.
I farmed these for hours and hours as a 59 WHM, subbed blm and set HP in windy, went naked and just with staff. First started rounding them up and AoEing them but that's no good, best way is to attack solo. Also nice to help people with their Giddeus key for their Kahzam quest while your there in exchange for the yag necks.
anyways finally got Leviathan quest so I can get Fenrir and got Tonko and Utsemi quests for some money for Raise II and Reraise II. yep thats my experience, Good luck, also if you turn them in for Norg fame do them 4 at a time.

you need 217 necklaces to get the utsusemi scroll easiest and cheapest way to do this is get some friends to help u and go to Giddeus to farm these, you could prolly get the amount u need in about 4 hours or so, but ya its worth it u can either use the scroll or sell it for 1.5mil i think its goin for right now on Seraph then it will also let you get the tuning fork of Water for leviathan but if u hav time farm these necklaces to get it out of the way, its better then buyin them

Hope that helps..

You are COMPLETELY wrong!!! First fo all, 217 isnt even a number divisible by 4, so you cant even turn in that number, so you are full of BS! secondly, we are @224 right now, and the price of rice balls is 161g, NOT EVEN CLOSE to complete... I'm SO sick of this myth of "around 200 necklaces" for geniuses who are too lazy to count, and have someone their ls or friends do it all for them...

200 yagudo necklaces => Scroll of Utsusemi: Ichi.
Utsusemi: Ichi = 1 mil+ (+10k for questing yag necklaces)

Yagudo necklace = 1,000 gil in AH.

1,000 * 200 = 200,000.

1,000,000 > 200,000.

Yeah, I did the math. Painfully obvious that you have no idea what you're doing.

I have found that roughly 200 necklaces will open the utsusemi quest, and should also get you the leviathan quest. I currently have thf AF quest and the rock one open with her and can still turn in yag necklaces for fame (just did so about 5 min ago). Just trade her 4 necklaces and she will give you 200gil and a touch of fame, no need to talk to her before hand. When I talk to her she asks about one of the other quest but will accept yag necklaces if I just trade them to her.

I als assume that the person that said the whole bit about 200x200=40,000 is talking about gil return. Check your math, you get 200gil for 4 necklaces s the return would be 1/4 of what you said. You get 10,000gil off of 200 necklaces rather than 40,000.

It takes more than 200. I farmed up 200 necklaces exactly and sent them to my mule. Got Kazham keys and headed down to Norg with oils/powders. I had enough fame to unlock Tonko, Kurayami, and Dokumori, but not Utsusemi. Even after doing those three, still not enough fame.

Well, I'd just assume that your mule didn't have any fame to begin with in windurst (I can't imagine why you'd want to do that on a mule, except to get another utsusemi ichi scroll). 200 yagudo necklaces is the rough estimate for a charater who has done an average amount of quests in windurst already, and probably has some fame.

Sure, to go from nothing to enough fame for Utsusemi isn't 200 necklaces, but nobody ever really starts from 0 when they do this quest.

no you don't need fame, I have no windy fame and have this quest, nanaa won't ask for 4 yag necklases, she will ask for a gift and the gift she means is the 4 necklases, so just trade them to her, after talkling to her a couple of times.

she will give you 200gil per 4 necklases, and at about 200+ necklases you will be able to get the utsesmi quest open.

Yes, you have to complete whatever THF AF you have open to get this quest. I had the same issue because I was on THF AF2 at the time.

Knocked out THF AF2, and didn't talk to her again as a THF. Easy cheesy, back to killing Yagudo by the hundreds.

Windurst Mission 2-1 will also block your ability to do this quest, since the mission involves Nanaa. If you are working fame hardcore, I would suggest holding off on the mission until you have time to complete it all in one shot.

Getting a mule to Utsusemi
# Sep 01 2005 at 3:45 PM Rating: Excellent
113 posts
Decided to see what it would take to get my retired mule from zero Norg fame up to the Utsusemi quest, since everyone's experiences seem to vary. I chose to do necklaces, since it seemed much more efficient than zinc.

My results:

- Mule is Taru, Windy allegiance, level 4 Windy fame.
- Nanaa Mihgo gave me the Bastok rock quest, yet I was still able to trade necklaces to her with the rock quest still open.
- 148 necklaces gave me a 161 riceball price and level 3 fame in Norg (I was curious, so I went to Norg earlier than expected in order to check my fame). With level 3 fame, I activated and completed both Keal's Tonko and the rusty leggings quest.
- 200 necklaces gave me level 4 Norg fame, and allowed me to activate and complete the Utsusemi quest. Leviathan quest could be activated as well.


- TH1 helps a ton with necklace drops. I estimate that the drop rate was about 70% with it, and 30% without it.
- BLM/THF is the most efficient job combo, mainly because of warp.
- The eastern side of Giddeus is usually less crowded, as is the underground connecting tunnel with the two NMs. So farming tended to be better there for me.
- If you cannot utilize the West Saru outpost warp, set your HP in Windurst Woods. Farm, Warp, trade necklaces, Warp, run to Warp Wizard at Choco stables, have him warp you Waters, then run back to Giddeus. Rinse, repeat.
- Once you have the necessary fame, make sure you set your HP in Norg before doing the Tonko and Utsusemi quests. This saves time, since you can warp/bloodport after reaching and clicking on the necessary ???s. Besides, sneak can wear at the most inopportune times, so it's good to play it safe.
- Do yourself a favor and buy your rusty items from another AH if you don't plan to fish them up yourself. For example, subligar in Sandy was 1200 each. In Norg, they went for 3000 each.

First there are no quests that "Lower fame" that any1 has experienced ( or have i ). Yag necklace quest only raises norg fame ( thats why its a tenshodo quest no a windy ) same for the zinc ore quest. I do not belive rank 5 gives you fame ( i think it should after you see the cs ). if you want to farm the necklaces take a lvl 6-8 job and just go around and wtfpwn the yags , you get a better drop rate that way. As for how many to turn in, well 200+ would be good ( i recomend necklaces easier drop + cheap + faster ) maybe more its always good to be safe then tkae an extra trip. 200x200= 40,000 for levianthan and utsusemi not bad IMO for those lazy ppl out there. =) lets not 4get the 200gil refund XD x200

( based on 20% experience and 80% Common Sense!!)

The Selbina moss quest lowers Norg fame. I'm not the only one that can prove it. But my rice ball price went from 161 to 164 after handing in 6 stacks of moss.

The tenshodo is a guild, and thusly the prices are affected by how many people buy items from the store. If people purchase rice balls from the tenshodo, the price the next day will be slighly higher. This was true even before the update that made this even more dramatic.

When I got Utsusemi fame I had rank 6 fame in San d'Oria. The elvaan there said something along the lines of "it's all thanks ta me" at the time. After doing the selbina quest enough times to get Hero fame in San d'oria, the Elvaan in Norg said nothing different.

Norg fame is NOT AFFECTED by Only the Best in Selbina.

norg vs windy fame

Ok, if anyone bothered talking to NPC's (lol) you would know a bit about the storyline behind Windurst.

Yagudo necklaces are *illegal contraband*, since the Windy officials are attemping to promote good relationships with the yags (i.e. the quest you get from Ranpi-Monpi (sp?) at the cooking guild).

Nanna Mihgo, is a thief/outlaw (think about what the people are like at Norg).

Anyhoo, by all logic, it would not make any sense that turning illegal contraband into an outlaw would promote your Windy fame =/.

From what I've heard, this quest *lowers* Windurst fame, but how much (if at all) I can't confirm.

I've turned in somewhere on the order of 250++ yagudo necklaces, and my Windurst fame hasn't risen.

I'm sure S-E wouldn't make a quest that lowers fame in one place exponentially while only slightly raising it somewhere else- as with this game, and any other MMO, things have to be even for the game to work. For example, despite all the debates about jobs being better than another- if there was indeed *one job* that was better than all other jobs, 99% of FFXI players would be that job =p. Diff jobs are better in diff situations, depending on the types of mobs you're fighting, the makeup of the party, etc...

Anyways, point of the matter is, by the way MMO's are designed, you can tell that even if this quest lowers Windy fame, it would have to be either an even tradeoff with Norg fame, or (my opinion) is the ratio is probably set up so that you'll lose a small amount of Windy fame in comparison to the amount of Norg fame you'd gain.
Whoa! I'm back! Only for a month though.

This quest raises Norg and I would assume windy fame since the quest is in windy. I don't think it lowers fame anywheres. Getting rank 5 (joining tenshodo) does in fact give you norg fame. Before i did rank 5 i couldnt talk to tenshodo people in bastok (except zinc ore guy) after gettign rank 5 however i could. I then activated the quest for the belt (gettings the two horns) However i then went to Selbina and did the La Theine Cabbage quest, once i returned to Bastok the tenshodo guys would no longer talk to me, including the guy who activated the belt quest. I have yet to get rampaging horn so I'm not sure if he will still let me trade them to him or not.

The NPC purrs, talks about her two henchmen,
Anyway, ill accept these as a token blah blah...

After 25 necklaces or so, she says:

What a clever kitten, heres some pocket money from my kitty.

My question is... does she usally say the second one or is this something new from the update that lets you guage your fame?

Thanks ^^

I'm curious about this myself tho mine is slightly different. I don't think the switch from the henchmen line to the clever kitten line means anything I think she will only talk about them once provided you talk to the 2 mithra's standing near where she is before you give her a set of necklaces and the clever kitten line is either the standard line or shes assuming you figured out what wants on your own hence you being clever.

I've been bringing 8 necklaces at once so I can get 2 completions per trip. After the intial henchmen thing she called me a clever kitten every time I traded with her until this morning I brought her my 8 necklaces for the first 4 she gave me the kitten line again BUT when I traded her the second set of 4 I had on me her response changed. She began saying "Just because I accepted yourrrr token of esteem doesn't mean you can get away with murderrrr".

I went to Jueno since the common belief (or myth cuz I'm still not sure personally) is the price of rice balls reflects your norg fame. When I got there tho they were the same exact price they were when I went there last night and checked and she was still calling me clever.

So I'm really curious if the change in dialog means anything fame wise I'm not too keen on the idea trying to go back to Norg to see if I can get the Tonko:ichi quest now cuz I already deleveled to 29 just trying to get there to unlock ninja in the first place lol

my skepticism on the rice ball thing has been settled I remembered (or was reminded rather) that the NPC is technically a guildseller so the reason I didn't see a price change was due to sales adjusting the price

Ok, listen up and listen good, here is the quickest way to get the quest fame.

We begin by Leveling NIN/WAR to Lv12. At this level, you stop dead and switch to THF/NIN, which you bring to 25, thus aquiring TH1 along the way as well as Flee. At 25, set your HP at the Outpost near Giddeus (Just Incase) and then run around Giddeus and shoot everything in the face that moves with a bow and arrow, while dual wielding daggers. Now, you are only going to be carrying those 2 daggers, a bow, 1 stack of arrows, and food if desired. That leaves 25 empty slots (If you don't have a gobbie bag). After filling up, Flee back to town and trade them all in. From here, either Flee back to Giddeus or get Warped back, through scroll, death, or help from a BLM. I'm doing this whole quest now, and these are my plans. I am willing to spend 5-10 hours on it, being I'm on break.

My only question is: Does being Rank 5 help my Norg Fame what-so-ever?

only selbina quests very strongly rumor'd to lower tenshudo (norg) fame, and vice versa.

if you've ever been to norg and talk to the npc's, they explain that they control the ships that attack the selbina/mhura ferry.

I can't stand to sit in a area and search for Necklaces for 10 hours! there should be harder but faster way to get the fame...like a direct (But hard) Quest to do it...Like travel half way around the world (Sandy to Windy for example) Only on foot and ship (No choco or item gets messed up) on a delivery and then you have to go back the same way (No choco or Airship same as before) so this way it would take a while (Repeat 4 times for a like a 500G reward [crapy]but a lot of fame) But instead we have to run into the dang place and try to get necklaces... O well ill just gather my LS members and use them has holding space while i farm for the Beads ^^ then i can go to the person and hand in like 140 or better at a time ^^ expecially since most of my LS members are Thiefs (TH1 TH2) and im a thief too ^^)

I didn't talk to her or her henchmen I just walked up and gave here 4 necklaces and accepted the 200 gil. she has never mentioned necklaces in the times i have talked to her and i have gotten a quest with some ore during my talks to her. she has always accepted the necklaces from me and reguardless of how many you give her you will only get 200 gil. If you are on fenrir and hunting the necklaces gimme tell if i am local. My bags fill fast and I would rather work together than compete.

I turned in 120 necklaces and my windy fame has not increased from 4. Therefore, I don't believe it increases windy fame. LuciusBrimstone, are you sure you did not complete any other windy quests or quests for windy related areas (such as Mhuara) during this time?

Im fairly positive this quest raises Windurst fame as well. My windurst fame went up 2 levels (4 to 6) after I did this quest a bunch of times for Norg fame, and I havent done anything else within Windurst during that time. Im going to keep doing it, and see if my fame really does go up; if so, this is how Im getting the Ramuh quest ^^.

And my theory on this would be that it should raise Windurst fame, seeing as the quest really doesnt do much for Norg fame, plus the quest is located within the Windurst region. Just my thoughts, though.

This quest works wonders for any higher than average characters ingame. I spent 3 days collecting Yagudo necklaces and beehive chips in Giddeus. Over time I got a few stacks of Silver Beastcoins and Honey, as well as Insect wings.

This quest is probably one of the best ways to make fast money. My income went from 30k-100k in 2 days and is still rising from my exploits.

I highly suggest going in with TH1, however.

You can measure how many times u need to do the quest in order to Get Tonko in Lower Jeuno, in the Neptunes Inn by the AH behind the counter theirs a NPC that sells rice ball if the rice balls are 153Gil that means you can do Tonko and right after you do Tonko Uts will Unlock itself. I also discorvered that for every 7 times you do the quest the price goes down by 4, so u would need 7x4 Yagudo Necklaces to make it go down by 4. So really you dont need 200 Necklaces just enough to do Tonko.
