Summary

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

Walkthrough

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.

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.
Cornelia?

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.

is Tenshedo fame Norg fame? And is this quest repeatable? Is the world coming to an end? Should I buy more canned foods?

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 23 2004 at 9:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) maybe talib transforms into a behemoth and u kill him for a zinc ore...

# Feb 18 2004 at 9:42 PM Rating: Decent
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
question
# Feb 05 2004 at 4:45 PM Rating: Default
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.
wtf?
# Jan 26 2004 at 5:08 PM Rating: Good
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.
Where do ppl get this info?
