Requirements to flag quest

For those of you who say all you need is fame to get this quest you dead wrong. If that were so then my level 5 sandorian fame would unlock this quest. It doesn't. there is something else required to unlock it. I don't know what yet but it's clear more is required. It's probly something simple that most poeple have already done. I'll post again if I figure it out.

Great wisdom is hard earned. Stupidity comes with ease.
Remember this and the world will forever make perfect sense.

I was not able to get this quest until I had Rank 3 fame. So if your Rank 2 and he's not giving you the quest, by Rank 3 you should have it.

This is ridiculously easy. You can have rank 2 from Sandy or 3+ from the other two nations and get this. There is no pre-quest. I'm not quite sure what level fame you need, because I was doing this on my father's retired character. Anyway, he had only three Sandy quests completed, and that wasn't enough. I bought around seven, 12-stack Rabbit Hides (each for around 1.5-2k) and traded them (in threes) to Parvipon at (E-8). You get 120 gil back for every three Rabbit Hides that you trade to him. You can use that gil earned to buy more Rabbit Hides, if needed. Head to Bostaunieux Oubliette (reached from Chateau d'Oraguille). Go down the hall (ignore the left turn) and take the first right. Here, you see a hooded figure (Novalmauge) walking (very slowly) up and down the corridor. If you don't have high enough fame, he'll say something along the lines of "Those who do not have business here should leave" (something like that). If you do have enough fame, he'll ask you to help him. He needs a Vial of Beastmen blood. This can be obtained from leeches, or be boughten from the AH (under "Other" or "Beast-made", I can't remember). Don't get this mixed up with Beast Blood (under "Alchemy"). Trade it to Novalmauge and he'll he say some other stupid crap and reward you with a Scroll of Drain.

Sandy Fame

For the sandy fame just kill forest hares outside of sandy in west ron and get stacks of them and trade to the NPC by the west ron gate. Hes by the grocery store hes in a corner just talk to everyone around there he will ask for rabbit hides and will trade you money for 3 of them. You get money and you get your fame up this is a repeatable quest its very easy. I did that for awhile then i did the quest for shaman garlic then i had rank 6 in sandy if that helps.


Good Luck on the Quest anyone that is going to do it. /kneel =D

Okay I just did this quest last night. I have to let you know for people not from San doria like myself you have to have lvl 3 fame as far as I know you may correct me if I am wrong. This is on top of the fact that you have to have at least 2-3 mission done . The reason for the mission needing to be at least started is for you have to have access to the cathedrail<-- misspell.

You still don't have enough Sandy fame, that's all. Keep trying. And I've found that a great way to build fame in Bastok and Sand at the same time, is to trade the moss to the shepherd in Selbina. Way cheaper, and the fame builds quickly if you take about 10-20 stacks with you.

Also, make sure to find the fame meter person in the pub of south sandy. check his response often to see if you are actually gaining fame - you are probaly building a lot slower than you realize.

10-20 Stacks. If sandy is first in conquest, you can buy the millioncorn from the grocery store and save yourself alot of money. But you'll need more than 10-20 stacks to get the fame from corn instead of moss.

This is possibly one of the easiest quests that exist. The only hard thing about it is ranking up to 2-3, which allows you access into Chateau d'Oraguille. I have not completed this quest yet, for I have not gotten to rank 2-3, but it will take a short amount of time.

Hmmmm, you went back and cant get quest again... and you're asking if it's repeatable? Isn't the answer a little obvious?

No, it is not repeatable. The price of Drain scrolls wouldn't be NEARLY what it is on ragnarok if this quest was repeatable.

I've been trying for a long LONG time to get enough fame in order to begin this peticular quest. I've done the Selbina quest 32 times and I've completed 11 San'Doria quests, however despite my efforts I cannot get Mr. Novelmauge to let me begin the quest. So far he only gives some useless information about the Dragoon quest. So my question is can anyone tell me how close I am to having enough Fame?

He gave me the quest(Fame level 4) I got 3k from my linkshell member cause I was broke and bought Beastmen Blood at AH for 4,700 gil. Gave him the blood he gave me the scroll I used it and I was happy. Drain sells for 120,000 gil on Alexander.

Yup, confirmed, I am Bastok Rank 3, and I had only done one Sandy quest prior to this. I bought 16 stacks of corn from the Aragoneu vendor at 500 gil per stack, then did the Selbina fame quest 64 times, getting back 480 per stack. Total cost - 320 gil.

I was then able to get the Drain quest, the scroll sells for 200k on my server (Midgard). Hope this helps, good luck. :)

Hi ok i have done this quest 3 times now and got it all 3 times there seem to be a mix up of how you get this quest so here is how i did it.First you need rank 3 if you are not from sandy if your from sandy then you only need rank 2 fame has to be about 3 but in saying that on one of my charac i didnt do a lot of fame building.Then the rest is easy go to the marshes kill leeches for beast blood or buy from ah the trade to the npc.Most of the quest is as above except as i stated you have to be rank 3 if your not from sandy rank 2 if you are i hope this helps and good luck

I've come to realize that some people on these forums have no idea what they are talking about. I've tried to get this quest nearly 20 times without any luck and I've run out of patiencs with this guy. Fame Level 3 is what people say I need, Fame Level 3 is what I have, and if I still don't get it...*looks at the shreaded voodoo doll*...let's just say the results won't be pretty.

Im from Windurst and completed the quest last night. I had to actually start the 2-3 "Three Kingdom" mission, and what i mean by start was going to Heaven's Tower in Windurst Walls and getting the instructions. Then headed out the Sandy to speak to the guy in the Windurstian Consulate who tells you to go the castle. That's what opens the door for you. I also completed a bunch of quests to build my fame to lvl 3. Repeated the bat wing and rabbit skin one a bunch of times. Buy the rabbit skins from the Tanners Guild, much cheaper than AH.

I got really frustrated previously since i kept getting denied from the castle and i just could not figure it out. I know in the instructions it says that you have to "start" the 2-3 mission, which is different from "accepting" it. So i decided to go back to Windy and actually "start" the mission by talking to the required NPC's. And that's all it took!!!. Now i am stuck in the middle of the 2-3 Mission searching for a party to start in Sandy. Please post back if you want to participate. Or look for me online as Villain.

Requirement 1: If you are a San d'Orian resident, you must be Rank 2. If you are a foreigner, you must be on or past Mission 2-3. These ranks are a requirement for entering the Chataeu d'Oraguille, the zone you must pass through to get to the dank dungeon located underneath.
Requirement 2: You must have Fame level 3 or higher. Fame level 3 is when you get told:
Ah, Tyasa. That is a name I often hear. People speak well of you!
Your deeds for the kingdom have earned you much honor.
by Namonutice in the Lion Springs Tavern in Southern San d'Oria.
For more information on fame, go here:

Once you have your rank and fame, you can proceed to get the quest. Enter the Chataeu, and go through the right hand door. Turn left, then right and proceed down the stairs.
You will zone into the Bostaunieux Oubliette at this point. To find the person I was looking for I went straight ahead, taking the first right. However he was walking, and I don't know how far he patrols. In this area there is nothing (afaik) dangerous but deeper in this is a level 50+ hunting ground.
You will get a short cutscene, and Novalmauge will ask for a Beastman Blood. It can be found on Leeches in Palshhow Marshland or you can buy it on the Auction House. It is located under Others>Beast-Made. I would recommend buying it; If you are a low level the creatures will be too tough for you, and if you are a high level I imagine you can farm the money faster than getting the drop. I found it to be slightly cheaper in Windhurst and Bastok than in San d'Oria.
Once you have the blood, you can trade it to him for the final cutscene and the scroll of Drain.

Step 3, Profit!

This quest is easy, you can make it with a lv1.
Just go to the NPC and turn back to sand'oria.

But this is not the right area to have a walk, this is for lv 50+ party leveling.

Ok, PEOPLE! if you are from Windy or bastok, read! I have no clue about sandy though, so eh.

You must have started the rank 2-3 mission to get into the chateau. Then YES you can go see Novelmauge, but he WILL NOT give you the quest until you reach rank 3 FAME in sandy. So you need two parts to this quest: 2-3 mission, and 3 fame in sandy. Trade rabbit hides, flint stones, and bat wings like crazy, and do a few other random quests.

Hope this helps!
