Summary

Bring some Derfland humus to use as fertilizer so that flowers might grow in the late queen's garden.

Description

You need to examine Queen Leaute's Grave in Chateau d'Oraguille and then talk to Chalvatot, who is nearby, to get the quest. He wants you to get a Derfland Humus to help him maintain the Queen's garden. This drops from Doom Scorpions in the Crawler's Nest.

You get fame in an area by completing quests there (or NPCs based in that area). Do quests in Bastok for Bastok Fame, Windurst quests for Windurst fame, etc. Jeuno fame is based on a combination of the 3 main cities, and quests there give you fame in all three. Having a higher fame makes NPC merchant prices lower and allows you to get the quests with better rewards. Read this guide for more details.

Rank is basically a way to identify how far along you are in the main storyline.

I tried to get this quest with lvl 4 San d'Oria fame and could not get it. I had acheived my San d'Oria fame almost solely from doing the Selbina Sheepman turnins. I had only completed 4 quests in San d'Oria at this point. I ran around and completed 4 more newbie quests in San d'Oria and when I came back he gave me the quest. So that's my take. I think you have to have a certain number of quests done in San d'Oria (more than 4, and 8 or less) to get it, along with having the fame.
It works

One of the older posts is correct in that you must talk to the gardener 1st. Then examine the tomb. Then talk to the gardener again. Good luck ^^

If you can get screwed getting this mission, is there another way to get the map? Also are there more missions that you can ***** yourself out of, just by talking the the wrong things first? I think I did it wrong when I was just starting the game... FF teaches us to talk to every body first. How am I suppose to know from all those years of training and condintioning to look at the items first

I was level 4 fame in San d'Oria, rank 3 in Windrust. Had done the Growing Flowers quest. Could not get this quest. Traded tons of moss and corn in Selbina. Still nothing. From reading posts decided what I really needed was to have done one other quest in the Chateau (I had done no others starting there). Looked for the quickest. Completed The Rumor, by buying beastman blood required for that one at AH, got my Drain scroll (now that I had fame for that from all the trading in Selbina) and when I went back to Her Magesty's Garden quest it activated with no problem.

OMG this quest is entirely Fame related, after wasting hours trying different methods to be able to get the quest I decided to level my fame in Sandoria by trading in Million corn for the quest "Only the best" in Selbina, after a few stacks (bought from the Argoneu vendor) I was able to get this damned map quest.

There seems to be a slight error in the description of this quest.
To recieve the quest, you must talk to first talk to Chalvatot, then examine the tomb, then talk to Chalvatot again.
Hope this helps ^.^

Confirmed. I checked the tomb first, then talked to Chalvatot, and he told me to go away. Checked the tomb again, talked to Chalvatot, and got the cut scene. Woot! I just love a bright shiny new map. Now if I could just figure out how to fold it.

I currently have high fame in Sandy but I talked to him first instead of examining the tombstone. Now all he says is that he is busy and doesn't want to deal with me. I've tried to clear all quests involving the Chateau...didn't work. Tried to zone and come back....didn't work. I saw the first cut scene with the queen or princess but now he won't even acknowledge me. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!

I'm from windy and tried to get this quest with rank 4 and fame 4 in sandy, but no luck.
I had 9 sandy quests completed (fame with bat wings), and then did two more (flyers for regine and the trader in the forest) and then he gave it to me, so i supose you must have at least 10 non-repeated quests completed before getting it.
Now i'm looking for derfland humus but there isn't one in sandy AH today. >_<

# Sep 20 2004 at 9:39 PM Rating: Excellent
For the people who are having problems getting this mission, do not dispare. I tried several times without success to get this quest. Recently I raise my fame to level four and was able to get the mission. If you did not check the tombstone first, just zone out and back in, then try again. The reason you need rank two obviously is to be able to enter Chateau d'Oraguille. My character is from Windurst, so you do not need to be from San d'Oria. And yes you can buy the Derfland Humus from the AH. I hope this and the others' post will help you.
------------------------------------------------
edited 9/30/2004
Sorry if there has been some confusion. I have been going by Tekkub's "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Fame" guide. Level four San d'Oria fame means you have 30 or more fame points toward San d'Oria. You know you have the fame when Flaco (Steaming Sheep Tavern, K-6) say "your name! You have become well known in these parts! I hear much of your accomplishments. Keep up the good work, and greatness lies in your future." I personally find that the repeatable quest give me about 1/2 point of fame and non-repeatable quest give a point of fame. As to which quest to do? Do all the ones you want that you can get :)p A few suggestions are "The Merchant's Bidding", "Fear of the Dark", "A Taste For Meat", and "Exit the Gambler". There are other good quest in San d'Oria. I encourage you to check them out here at ffxi.allakhazam.com.

I did check the tome stone before talking to Chalvatot, and only talked to him once. If you feel you have to talk to him twice, go ahead, what is there to lose? Just remember persistance is the key and good luck! Smiley: grin

Informative post, thank you! Only one slight correction- the NPC for fame in San d'Oria is Namonutice, at K-6 in Lion's Springs Tavern in South San d'Oria. Flaco is the NPC for checking Bastok fame. Good suggestions on quests. For cheap repeatables, 'Fear of the Dark' is great. I'd also suggest 'Starting a Flame' and 'The Merchant's Bidding'. Of course, there's always the old fallback for both Bastok and San d'Oria fame, 'Only the Best' in Selbina. If, you know, you're feeling particularly desperate or masochistic.
hopefully this will help

This is a helpful quick reference to obtaining the Key Item: Map of the Northlands Area

The map covers the Beaucedine Glacier and Xarcabard

It is gaained from the quest 'Her Majesty's Garden'

Items required for completing the quest: a single Derfland Humus (which I purchased from the Auction House [Others => Miscellaneous => Derfland Humus {1500-200 gil on gilgamesh server}])

You must be able to enter Chateau d'Oraguille to receive this quest. Once inside, proceed to F-7 on the map.

When you make it to F-7, examine the 'Tombstone' first. After checking the tombstone, turn around and speak with 'Chalvatot'. When you first speak with him, he will say "Me name's Chalvatot. I be the gardener here, you see. Blah blah blah blah blah....." Anyway, the important part is you need to speak with him a SECOND time to get the quest (and cutscene, which signifies the start of the quest)...rather than coming on here and complaining that he didn't give you the quest... (/endrant)

If fame is an issue, try repeating the 'Only the Best' quest several times in Selbina.

Also, i'm fairly certain you must have begun mission 2-3 and at least talked with your embassy (if you aren't from San d'Oria) just to enter Chateau d'Oraguille. However, since I completed this and the Drain Scroll quest at the same time as a Rank 5 Bastokan with high San d'Oria fame, i cannot tell you for certain. maybe someone who is certain will be kind enough to reply to this post.

Anyway, i hope this helps, rather then having to sort through millions of posts complaining they couldn't get the quest.... (/endrant....again)

Very good post. I don't think that you have to have started Mission 2-3 if your not from San D'Oria to be able to get into the Chateau d'Oraguille, even though I am from Sandy, because as soon as you get Rank 2 you should be able to enter the Chateau. I don't think SE would have made things that biased when they made the game.

Oh and while your doing this quest you should also look into the drain quest, even if its for profit :p

When i entered the chateau , i went and clicked on the tombsone at f-7 , then turned around and spoke to the gardner , no luck with getting quest. So i click tombstone again and spoke to him again , he mumbled something about not having any open quests for "royality" (i forget the exact word but you know what i mean) . So i assume i need to complete the fit for a prince quest first . Also the growing flowers might help ..

I did this quest last night. I think there are at least three prerequisities required, but I am not certain of the exact minimum levels. Here is my list of conditions that seemed to allow the quest.

Windurst Rank:5 (3 is the minimum, I suspect)
Windurst Fame:6
San D'oria Fame:5
Completed: Growing Flowers quest
Examined Tombstone
Talked to gardner -> Told basically 'shut up & go away'
Talked to gardner again -> cut scene to start quest

After I got quest, I headed on down to Southern Sandy AH, bought the Derfland Humus (2,200 about 30 in stock), came back and traded it in for another cutscene. After that cut scene finishes, you get the fanfare and the map.

Hope this helps

I really hope that you can't completely ***** yourself out of getting this quest if you didn't check the **** tombstone first... I'm a completist, so I've just gotta do every single quest I can possibly do! I talked to the gardener first, and got a cutscene in which the princess or whatever shows up and talks about something, and then leaves. I check the tombstone, and it says something about "may she rest in peace", and I talk to the gardener again, and he basically tells me to **** off. Well, heh, I'm ****** off! (Just joking! :P) I have completed about 28-30 quests, one of which I have repeated about 10-12 times, and other about 5-6 times, and the Namonutice guy in the tavern says I have earned much honor or something (which I think is level 3 fame) and I still can't get this quest! Did I just stymie myself out of this quest by talking to the gardener before the tombstone!? Tell me it ain't so!!

I tried to get this quest, I am from Windy, but have level 8 fame in San D'oria, no luck. I then went and closed an open quest I had that involved the Chateau(the find the prince a bride one, you can choose to give up on it with no harm), then I went back and I was able to get the quest. I think you just can't have any other open quests involving the Chateau(the gardner says something to that effect if you try to get it with an open quest) Try that

I did not get this quest as a Bastokan with level 4 Sandy fame, but the discrepancies in the information and the NPC's comments about foreigners when I first sopke to him leas my to think that there may be seperate fame requirements for citizens of San d'Oria and for citizens of Basok and Windurst.

I have no proof of this, not enough data here, but I think it sounds at least mildly plausable.

To get into the Chateau, you have to have rank 3 in another nation or rank 2 in sand, not be on th mission for rank 3, because, the key item obtained after killing the dragon and doing the ohter thing is the adventurers certificate, which says that you are now a certfied citizen of all 4 realms

Partially untrue... You have to talk to somebody *in* the chateau as part of M6 for rank 3 (at least I did). It's going to be mighty tough to talk to him if I can't get in teh castle because I'm not yet rank 3.

There are two definite requirements to getting this quest:

1) You need at least level 6 fame in San d'Oria. This is a fairly high requirement for a standard quest, so check your fame if you aren't sure. When you have level 6 fame, Namonutice (S. San d'Oria in the Tavern, K-6) will tell you, "I would venture that much the kingdom has heard your name. And your reputation sparkles! Indeed I am proud of you. And to think I first knew you when you were a new recruit!"

2) You need to be able to get into the Chateau d'Oraguille. The requirements for this are mentioned below; being a high enough rank to gain admittance. This is one of only a handful of quests that do require a minimum rank to activate, but only so that you can gain admittance into the Chateau.

If you don't meet these requirements, you're probably not of a high enough level to find the map useful, so it's something of a moot point. Do some more quests/missions, and you should be able to get this quest in short order.

He didn't say that to me and I still got the quest.

Also no one has mentioned yet that I've seen that you have to talk to him TWICE for the quest to active. He told me he doesn't want to deal with someone from another country the first time I talked to him. Second time I did (just a moment later) BAM! Got the quest. I had level 5 San Doria fame by the way.

Question..
# Feb 15 2004 at 7:58 PM Rating: Default
Is there any other way to get into the Chataeu other than being rank 2 in Sandy or being on mission for rank 3?

I really want this map, to go along with my other extensive and almost complete list of maps lol as well as be able to enter the Oubelttle..i spelt it wrong, I know, you get the idea tho.

Suggestions?
Not just fame.

Some quest require more than just Fame to get them. Some need a certain level, a specific job, a rank...it's not always about fame.Yes, fame is needed to activate it but this one may also require a rank to be acheived before hand. I was already rank 5 before I tried it, so I can't say for certain which rank is needed.

Unlocking this quest
# Dec 22 2003 at 1:32 PM Rating: Default
This quest requires you to complete the San D'oria quest, Growing Flowers, to unlock it (along with gaining entrance to the Chateau in the first place to get to the garden).

Most of the quests I've seen where people are confused on how to activate it require an earlier quest to be completed first, in addition to regional quest fame.
fame

Also keep in mind that in order to acces the Chateau, you need to have Rank 2 from San d'Oria, or be on Mission 6 from your home country. That may be where the rank is comming into play with people's posts.
Fame vs Mission

I find it hard to believe people still have not figured out fame....well here goes.

You get fame for doing quests for the city you are in. The more quests you do the more fame you get. Doing a quest over and over again will also build up fame level but not as fast as doing multiple unique quests. So when it says you need 30 fame then it does not mean in any way shape or form that you need to have done so many missions.

Speculation
It is my understanding, though I may be wrong, Missions also count toward fame level. IF it is YOUR countrys missions. From what I can tell doing missions over and over again does NOT bring up fame levels. This may be one of the things that confuses people. They can not do a quest, so they go out and complete a mission they come back gain rank 3 and then go try the quest again and bam they can (Not because of rank but because fame was given for completing a mission.)
/Speculation

Again this is my understanding of the system. Hope it helps out some of you
Dont have 2 be rank 3
# Dec 11 2003 at 9:06 PM Rating: Default
i am the lvl21/10mnk that posted before and i finally got the quest.. ALso i AM NOT RANK 3 only 2 :) Just needed more fame as stated by the fame POST :)) i also have around 35 quests done now for sandoria.. Hope this helps
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 11 2003 at 12:31 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) YOU HAVE TO BE AT RANK 3 TO RECIEVE THE QUEST.
RE: IDIOTS:
# Dec 13 2003 at 1:33 PM Rating: Default
no you don't have to be rank 3. I just made level 18, and the first time I got into the garden I talked to the guy twice. The second time, he gave me the quest. I have not even done misson 2-2 yet.
RE: IDIOTS:

Just a note. Ability to get quests is based on fame! not level. not rank. FAME.
Fame is received by doing more quests.
fame != rank.
fame != job level.
I think this note should be posted everywhere so people finally get the idea.
Thanks.

#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 17 2003 at 4:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Just an fyi, it's true getting quests has nothing at all to do with rank or level, but it may also have something to do with actions you've taken or failed to take...
RE: IDIOTS:

I can confirm that you don't need rank 3 to get this quest because I got it before doing the Davoi Report.
RE: IDIOTS:
# Dec 11 2003 at 4:28 AM Rating: Default
I'm rank 3 and still can't get this. Think before you call anyone an idiot.
RE: IDIOTS:
# Dec 14 2003 at 10:27 PM Rating: Default
He's refering to Bastok/Windurst people. If you're from one of those 2 nations, you cannot enter the chateau until you go to do mission 6: the emissary.
RE: IDIOTS:
# Jan 22 2004 at 6:06 PM Rating: Default
No he still didnt think before posting and even he did it wasnt long enough obviously. You dont have to be rank 3. if you arent from sandoria (like myself) I can get into the chatteau, because I still havent killed the dragon to get rank 3. Dont see why anyone needs a map I had so much fun wandering around the galciers for an hour or two hoping I didnt get killed trying to find the outpost lol. tho really, this would be a nice map to have i hope I can get it..
RE: IDIOTS:
# Jan 29 2004 at 11:59 AM Rating: Default
You dont need to kill the dragon, you just need to on mission 6, which allows you to enter the chateau.
