Doing this quest saved me 20k ;) I'm glad it drops from more then just a BCNM. I've done Shooting Fish on my Summoner, but I always sell the Warp scrolls. I didn't think I'd level BLM anytime soon. :P I'm about to use the scroll. Get ready! I'm going to tele~ like crazy now.

I can say being from Windurst is taking me longer to get this quest flagged than what others are saying. I know I have done more than 12 quests and I still don't have it. I don't like doing many repeat quests if I can help it. I am sure there is more to the getting of fame than the number of quests completed.

Do the Mom the Adventurer quest 10 times. This will give you lv 2 fame that is needed for the Warp Quest. You can get the copper ring from the shop right next door and it costs less than the reward you get. Net gain, few hundred gil and 10 fire crystals.

Simple Explanation

This is from Lakshmi...
In Bastok, a stack of treant bulbs go for 700gil. Slime oil goes for 600gil. That's 1300gil for the materials. All I did was trade one bulb to Salimah between each zone (I didn't have a warper, so I zoned at the mines). If you time it right, you can stand to make anywhere from 1200gil to 1800gil for the stack of treant bulbs. Once you do that, run to Unlucky Rat and, after talking to him, trade him the slime oil. He will then give you the scroll of warp. DONE! In Bastok, warp sells for about 25k-30k on lakshmi. Not sure about windy or jueno. I'll check those and reply back. But it's an easy quest and I already have two scrolls (made extra mules for it).

I wanted to see how long it took to get this spell. I did these quests in this order, checking after each one to get quest till he said something about machine instead of working not being hard compared to mining:

1. Groceries

2. Minesweeper

3. Mom the adventurer

4. Father figure

5. Mommy's helper

6. Beauty and the galka

7. Foremans best friend

8. Zehrune report (mission)

9. Quadavs curse

10. Bridget the stylist

I know misions don't really add into it, but did it anyway. And Dirty rat was happy for my help!! Don't know if this helps, but here it is.

For those who are stingy about time (and money, I suppose), you only need to turn in 10 treant bulbs (possibly 9, I only checked in increments of 2) if you start from 0 fame before you can get this. Putting this out there since that quest requires you to zone.

You only need to trade 5, not 10. Trading more than one at a time does not give extra fame.

I'm from San d'Oria and previously had no Bastok fame (well, I think I might've done that flint stones quest there like twice). I was really itching for this scroll, so I stripped down to the buff and loaded up all 30 slots with stacks of La Theine Cabbage which my mule had bought in Windurst. Since my homepoint was in Valkurm, I changed to a level one job (THF, since I'd have Perfect Dodge in case I caught aggro) and deathwarped there. I gingerly made my way to Selbina and proceeded to trade in the cabbages to the sheep guy with the impenetrable accent. When I trekked to Bastok, this quest was ready and waiting for me.

And as a bonus, I had enough fame for the Drain quest in Sandy AND the gobbiebag in Jeuno! Only takes one trip, guys!

I'm not sure how much fame you actually need to complete this quest, but I do know that you can do the Selbina quest "Only the Best" with 1 stack of boyahda moss and 1 stack of millioncorn to get enough fame. It might be a good idea to gain as much Selbina fame as humanly possible, because this also boosts San d'Oria and Bastok fame, where you can quest Drain and Warp.

ok, just want to add that I took 57 stacks of la theine cabbage to the "only The Best" quest (or whatever it's called, but the one in selbina). I bought each stack for 276g from my local zulkheim salesperson (first booth going north from san d'oria east gate >.> sorry, find the zulkheim people in yor home country if you're not willing to go to sandy.) after turning these cabbages in (for a mere loss of 2052g plus traveling expenses, which ended up being 800g and 530 exp for me [I forgot to use invisible trveling from the outpost to serubina -_-]) I took a quick trip to Mr. Rat in Bastok and warped back to Sandy ^_^..(well, to sarutabaruta, then outpostported back to sandy..XD)

57 stacks!?? As in 684 cabbages?!? Holy **** thats a lot! And buying a stack for 276g would net you MAJOR profits, since he gives you i think 600g per cabbage you turn in, so im going to guess that it wasnt 57 stacks...

... wow imagine 60 slots of cabbages (well 59 to be able to trade) would be 708, at 600 each would be 424,800 minus the cost of the cabbages would still be the easiest 408,516 gil you have ever made, with no competition or risk, like in farming or camping NMs. Steady flow of money while watching t.v. or (for those on ps2 with a comp next to you) playing something else, from buying and selling to and from NPCs, of course that would get nerfed so fast that the universe would implode or something. I forgot why i wrote this...

Actually, you get 600G for every 5 cabbages, but nonetheless, at 276G a stack, you still can make a lot of gil from this if you're patient and do it enough. You make about 1000G back per stack, so if you did 57 stacks, you would make 57k. It's not 400k but it's still good gil, especially for lower levels.

you get 100 gil for every five cabbages...

There's pretty much no way to buy a load of any of these three items below the quest reward price. I was just pointing out that you only lose a few gil per turn in, whereas you'd lose around 600 gil per turn in from moss, on my server at least. Unless you bought singles...(<--- not worth the slowness)

i admit i do not remember exactly when i completed this quest. I do, however, know and am certain that it was before i was even lvl 20 on my main. An ls member struck up a conversation on easy ways to make money quickly and this quest eventually came up. I thought "what the heck" and went back to bastok to try it out.

Got the quest first time i asked.

My character is Bastokan and hume, apparently that might contribute to getting the quest as early as i did. Also, i had about 8 or 9 quests finished when i talked to the npc, so the quest wasnt hard at all for me to get.

As for someone of another race and/or city, i believe that that takes a part in the lvl of fame needed to aquire this quest from the npc. Just try and bare with it and as people have posted, do the gourmet quest. The scroll, in my opinion, is well worth the bit of running to zone and give her the food a few times. Especially if your a blm. Hope this helps^^

Yea good idea.. lets call people stupid cus thier new.

Doing quests over and over agean i heard only gives you 1/4 of what you would be geting by doing more quests.

so i think its beter to get lots of quest done rather spend a long time geting things for one quest.
yea

Yes you can do this quest 20 times, each time you get a scroll of warp which sells for 10k at the AH!!!

..... think again

This quest requires 10 Bastok quests completed before it will be given.

The best way to do this? 10 turn-ins for the "Gourmet" quest. I have verified this using treant bulbs (during peak and non-peak hours) 3 times.

The Gourmet quest is given by Salimah, in the house at L-8, in Bastok Markets. Salimah needs certain items at certain hours to for the meal she is cooking. This quest IS repeatable, but you are required to move to a different area and back (zone) before you can repeat it. Logging out doesn't work (I tried it, would have been quicker). Zoning into the Bastok Mines is pretty easy from the house, just check your map. While this might be a PITA to do 10 times, you will actually make money doing this. Here's the breakdown of which items she needs, which hours:

Treant Bulbs- 0600-1159, a reward of 200 gil. Purchased in the Bastok AH for 1200 a stack, or about 100-150 apiece.

Wild Onions- 1200-1759, a reward of 350 gil. Purchased in the Bastok AH for 4k a stack, or about 350-400 apiece.

Sleepshrooms- 1800-0559, a reward of 200 gil. Purchased in the Bastok AH for about 3k a stack, or 250-300 apiece.

Obviously, if you do this at the right times, using onions or bulbs, you will make money. You'll make more using bulbs. Note that even if you hand in one of these items at the "wrong" time, you will still receive a reward of 100 gil. So, even if you buy some treant bulbs and turn them in at an offtime, you will still break even on these turnins.

Once you have completed 10 quests, purchase a slime oil from the Bastok AH for about 6-800 gil. Turn it in to Unlucky Rat once he has given you the quest, and you get the scroll. That easy!

As you can see, you can have fame, 3-500 gil, and the warp spell, all for about a half hour's work, including the time you spend buying the items.

The gourmet information is good. Unfortunately you have to remember that fame is not earnt evenly for every PC depending on home town and race. Basically the matrix is about as follows

Home town & home race : Max effect
Home town or home race : Med effect
Neither home town nor home race : Min effect

The differences aren't massive but they can be self-evident when you compare a hume from Bastok earning fame in Bastok compared to a Taru from Windhurst doing the same missions.

Also - repeatable quests earn less fame than doing uniques - and quests that give a title are better fame providers than those that don't.

I's suggest the fame thread on the mission forum if you want better than regurgitated details :)

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 30 2004 at 1:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I had to do the Gourmet quest 15 times - checking each time after the last 3.. so 10 gourmet quests alone won't do it.
10 quests? hah

Really? My BLM is at level 18, and I plan on getting Dark Night at level 30, but, I am not gonna wait to be level 30 for the warp scroll, so... I think I will keep doing other quests.... I wanna warp to Selbina as soon as I get the scroll, lol!

Just to make sure this doesn't confuse anybody... you do not get to choose where you Warp to. You will warp to the last place that you set your Home Point at.

fame...

I think that some have gotten this quest because they have a very high level of fame in other cities, and that makes slightly less work than if you didnt. just a guess tho.
An economical approach.

i'm pretty sure people know that this is a BLM spell. You see other job groups trying to get this scroll to sell. Since its easy to get and you get 10-15k gil when you complete it

Uh, read on, dude. The reason people point out it's a BLM spell is because others keep saying that it's a Lv1 scroll usable by all jobs, oblivious to the fact that Warp is not Instant Warp scoll.
