Contents [hide]


Bring a chunk of zinc ore to Talib of the Tenshodo in Parraggoh's stead. Monsters in Gustaberg are known to drop the ore.


In Port Bastok, go to Warehouse 2 (it is marked on the map) and go down the stairs. Talib is located behind the stairs and is dressed in red clothing with a red hat. Talk to him, and you will get a cutscene. Afterward, give Talib one Zinc Ore piece, and he will give you a key item, Palborough Mine Logs. Now, head to the Bastok Mines area and go into the residential area, marked Ore Street on the map. Walk down the steps and immediately go to your left and into the first door. Inside is a lone Galka standing near a fireplace, Parragoh (H-6). Talk to him to finish the mini quest (you do not need to talk to the girl from the cutscene even though he asks you to). He will reward you with a Bronze Knife for bringing him the note.

I do this with a lvl 15 THF (has TREASURE HUNTER). If you can't THF it, go when moon is between waxing 50% to full. Lots of gobs. Everything registered to me as just above "to weak to be worthwhile."

I had Back Street Mog Exit. I came out of my mog in Port Bastok. I walked across Drawbridge. I took a right through Beligen Square and walked out the North Gate.

I took a left, followed a path through North Gustaberg that lead to a small bridgeover Obere Creek. To my right was Zegham Hill. If I hug the hill I come to a green area with trees that leads up the hill. Going up just one level and I find drop paradise.

Kill enough worms and they drop zink ore. [Other good drops there as well (black wolf at night which drops dog collar for other quest).]

Talib is inside Warehouse #2, (F-6), at the bottom of stairs, Port Bastok.

Parraggoh is in the house right below Bat's Lair Inn, (H-5), Bastok Mines.

The book says this quest is not Repeatable.. but I know its repeatable from everyone telling me it is.. but do you still keep getting bronze knives? And which is easier? Doing the Zinc quest or Yag necks ?

I did this quest and turned in 66 ores and also turned in 72 necklaces into windy. Also completed is the Rusty Leggins quest in norg and the ninja quest. My fame is at 3-4 and did not go up one lvl after handing in 36 ores. I have not dome the Tenshodo Invite but will see if that hinders or helps it. Can anyone else help me? (i'll edit if anything changes)

Just in case no one has figured it out yet, if you said no to Cornelia during the cutscene, you can talk to Parraggoh in Bastok Mines (his house is located under the Bat's lair inn) to activate this quest

This is for Tenshodo or Norg fame (same thing). Talib works for the Tenshodo, that's why the fame goes there.

She appears in the cutscene when you first talk to Talib in Warehouse #2. You don't need to locate or talk to her at all for this quest.

The quest starts out where they ask for 1 zinc ore, then they send you to the Bastok Mines and talk to the Galka. Go back to the Tenshodo Guy in the Port and he asks for 4 zinc ore. From here on out you just trade him by 4's and dont have to run all the way out to the Mines again to talk to the Galka.

am i the only one that thinks behemoth's dominion has nothing to do with this quest and i somehow doubt you'd go there to farm an item found in north gustaberg.

we should try that. form an alliance of 75's and go to that place just for this quest. would be worth it me thinks

When you start handing the zinc ores in 4's. Do you get fame for each one, or for 4 at a time? Kinda need to know for fame.

Someone needs to get rid of Behemoths Domain as a related area.
Behemoths is located of Qufim, and has absolutely nothing to do with this quest.

it's not about the money, it's about getting a quest done. Most quest dont' really pay to well, or even anywhere near hte effort. But it gives you fame that you need for better quest.

Fame also raises your resell to npcs, and lowers prices at npcs in the town. Something pretty important if you plan buy lots trash from the smithing/goldsmith guilds here.

Buy some picaxes from the item shop in the Bastok Mines Area. Go into the Zerhun Mines and "tab" around until you find a mining spot. You can get zinc ore there sometimes. After you mine a spot press "tab" again cause you can usually mine the same spot several times before the spot will go away for awhile. Also, make sure to buy several picaxes as they break after a couple of uses!

Yes Where is Talib? i've been searching for this NPC for a quest.. "Beauty and the Gaulka" or something like that. I have to give Talib an ore. I have the ore already.

This guy is part of another quest with the character Cornelia from the opening scene if you started as a foreigner in Bastok (i.e. not Hume). Her boyfriend Perraggoh(sp?) owes a debt which she is trying to pay for him (the zinc ores) but can't, since she can't leave the city. When you first speak to Talib there is a cutscene movie with dialogue between Talib and Cornelia and the quest and story are explained.

This quest isn't worth doing, in my opinion. You can get more money for Zinc Ore from other players who need them for low-level Blacksmithing (3 Copper Ore + 1 Zinc Ore + Fire Crystal = Bronze Ingot) - and you'll be helping the player economy by doing so!

Zinc Ore drops from Tunnel Worms and Rock Eaters occasionally. I've heard that you can mine various ores in the mines, but I can't confirm that at this time.

This quest is used to increase Norg fame. If you are a ninja you need the fame in order to get the quests for your ninja scrolls. So for myself or any other ninja or ninja subjob this quest is very very important. Aspirations of becoming a ninja then save those zinc ores and do this quest many times over.

When I was hunting Tunnel Worms in South Gutasberg, the zinc ore dropped like crazy. The Stone Eaters in South Gutasberg dropped Zinc, Copper and ocassionally Silver. In North Gutasberg, the Stone Eaters seemed to drop more Copper and only occasionally Zinc.
