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

Is the requirement to get in simply rank 2 or do I need to be on mission 2-3?

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.

I've heard that trading Moss, corn, etc is good to raise your fame in jeuno and bastok, but lowers yout teshindo fame...

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 of 12 moss? or just 10-20 individual mosses?

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.

Hmm... I just traded him the item and he gave me the scroll.

I think he's part of the DRG quest but I doubt that has anything to do with it.

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.

DOH. Thank You. That was the problem. I had Beast Blood (found under Alchemy).


I needed Beastman Blood (found under Misc - beast made).

Guess it pays to read carefully, what the quest is calling for. MY bad :)

Thanks to those that responded.
