First, talk to Evi, then talk to Rafaela, then Evi wants you to retrieve the mission orders that were buried in Konschtat Highlands. They are located around G-8 on your map. Look for a ???. Return with them for your reward.

I have been trying to get this quest for ages. I have had Hero fame in Bastok for a while and still, Evi wouldn't give me the time of day. However, this morning I finally got round to doing the second Qiji-related quest (Til Death Do Us Part-Cotton Gloves needed). I talked to Evi (not his girlfriend) before going down the stairs to Romilda and he said nothing out of the ordinary. Then, out of habit I guess, I talked to him again after clearing the other quest and FINALLY! I got it. Phew.
Maybe this will help.

If everything above STILL doesnt work, Ive verified that this is a low fame, low level job quest (did it in my first few weeks of playing the game from the VERY beginning...) and theres just some quest in bastok thats holding up the process story wise.... just do various low level/low fame quests in bastok and keep checking in... ill bet thats everyones problem, i just wish i knew WHICH quest, its been a while... someone mentioned Michea's involvment... try her, shes above one of the shops in bastok markets in the south west most section on the way to south gusta. Best of luck ^^

Sandy resident, 40 Sandy quests, 30+ Bastok quests, etc etc still no quest. The only one I can't seem to get!
Definitely, more than 10 fame needed!

I have done more than 15 Bastok quests, plus Groceries, and other repeatables, like the Flint Stones one, countless times, but, the quest hasn't been given to me yet, I even got the Warp Scroll Mean Machine quest, that supposedly requires more fame than this one. I finished it, but have yet to get the dang Dog Collar, maybe after that one, they'll give me the quest.
Is it a game?
It's a SERVICE. Not a game. It's a WORLD. Not a game. It's a COMMUNITY. Not a game. Anyone who says, "it's just a game" is missing the point.

Im from San O'Doria and came to Bastok for the first time, i have 0 fame there, talked to Evi and finished the quest with no problem. maybe you guys are at the wrong place. ^^
# Jan 28 2004 at 7:21 AM Rating: Default
I'm a level 41 rdm, have LOTS of Bastok fame (enough that Cid gave me the quest to talk to the tavern owner, one level above the req. for Mog Safe expansion), I've obviously been to San D'oria and I have fame there too, I've finished all the quests with the Elvann goldsmith, I've done the dog collar quest, I'm Rank 5, I've talked to Evi and his girlfriend in many different ways (including Evi - gf - Evi again) and I STILL can't get this quest. Maybe I'm too high for it now, haha...

I have accepted this quest and found the ??? near the windmill in highlands BUT when i check the ??? it says" though i seen something but it was nothing" any ideas on what to do???
# Jan 12 2004 at 7:06 PM Rating: Default
You must be at least level 9... Talk to Evi, then his girl, THEN him again... if you CAN receive it, you will... you'll need to have your points up... have fun

You may need to do a certain number of quests related to the Elvaan goldsmith (there's 3 or 4 quests that become unlocked when you finish that one). Evi is friends with the NPC from that quest and believes you are trustworthy enough to retrieve the orders for him.

no dont worry i got it at some low level as a war after doing some of the Michea, is it? The smith in bastok above shop near markets to gusta exit? anyways, did one or two of her requests, and never went to Sandoria... whoever said to do the Elvaan goldsmith's stuff first is rite, i believe... i was, again, probably pre level 10 and with not very much fame
Time waisted

If you DO NOT have quest, then you will NOT find his orders in the Highlands. Don't waist your time...
# Jan 05 2004 at 3:44 AM Rating: Default
this quest doesn't work for me either. Ive spent about 3 hours running back and forth to the highlands trying to pick up the orders and talk to Evi... but can't get anything to happen. Im just gonna buy the scale mail. Im angry.

I couldn't get this either, then I talked to Evi, then to his girlfriend, then back to Evi, and he gave me the quest. I found the papers easily enough, and they are a key item so they don't go in your normal inventory.
Evi is quite stubborn...

Apparently there's something else involved in getting this quest. I have nearly 30 quests completed in Bastok. I'm a level 22 MNK/11 WAR. I still can't get Evi to give me this quest. Maybe he only gives it to certain Jobs. I'll switch to Warrior and see if I get it then.

I have been doing the other quest and w/o doing any mission (Rank 1-1) I was able to do this quest. Did not do the collar quest. Just 10 of the other quests listed for Bastok.
# Nov 27 2003 at 3:37 PM Rating: Default
I just got this quest today after completing the bastok welcoming comitee quest, which i believe was the 10th quest i finished, but could not recieve this quest before that, so i think 10 quests is the pre-requesit as stated before

You don't have to dig it. Just go to highland go near G-8. It's behind one of the windmills. All you need to do just go near the windmills and start hitting your target key (for me it's either F-8 or Tab). Hope this help.

My friend did this quest with Rank 1 and 7 quests completed. But did not do the dog collar quest. If this information helps. I think one of the keys is you have to talk to Evi then Rafaela and then Evi again to get the quest.
More Info
# Nov 15 2003 at 7:20 PM Rating: Default
Have 10 quests done. Talk to Evi first. Then talk to Rafaela. Then talk to Evi again and you should get the quest.
# Nov 14 2003 at 9:19 PM Rating: Default
10 Quests done i believe is the Pre-requesit
Fame is pre-req
# Nov 14 2003 at 7:56 PM Rating: Default
Pre-req for this quest is your fame. Go talk to Flaco in front of the inn in Port, if he thinks your name is a snail, then your fame is not high enough. If he thinks your name sounds familiar, then you are good to go.
where is evi?

# Nov 11 2003 at 11:38 PM Rating: Default
I had problems getting this quest too, i talked to Evi about 20 times and he never gave it to me. Then today, i was running the dog collar quest, i swang by, talked to evi, no quest. Went and handed in the dog collar and on the way out, bugged Evi one more time. Lo and behold, he gave me the quest that time. I dont know if the dog collar quest is a pre-requisite or if its luck. It had just turned 22:00 game time when i talked to Evi. Hope this info helps!
RE: got the quest finally
# Nov 12 2003 at 6:08 PM Rating: Default
I just finished the dog collar quest, still no go. I'd be willing to bet you have to have a certain number of quests done before Evi gives it to you.

Maybe race has something to do with it aswell.

# Nov 11 2003 at 3:35 PM Rating: Default
Is there a certain time of day you need to talk with them? Be grouped? not grouped? There's got to be some sort of restriction involved.

I talked to both of them in every order, & he just complains about Sandoria...
Here you go!!
# Nov 08 2003 at 7:22 PM Rating: Good
Alright, to get this quest you must talk to Evi, then Raphaela (Standing right next to him), then talk to Evi again. He'll send you to the Highlands.

The orders are located in the Upper-left hand corner of tile G-8 on your Highlands map, in a ??? on the back side of a windmill. You WILL NOT be able to pick up the orders if you did not receive the quest from Evi (They are a key item).

Return the orders to Evi to receive a Scale Mail as a reward (Confirmed.)

RE: Here you go!!
# Nov 10 2003 at 3:33 PM Rating: Default
I've done that, he just complanes about some timeless city and how i don't want to go there, also says something about how in bastok he feels alive.
I'm a lvl 13 RMage.
RE: Here you go!!
# Nov 11 2003 at 2:45 PM Rating: Default
Yeah, I'm having the same problem. I've tried talking to him and that woman next to him in every possible sequence, but no luck. He doesn't give me the quest, he just keeps talking about the same things.

Are there restrictions on this quest??
# Nov 08 2003 at 6:27 PM Rating: Default
Do you need to use a pickaxe to find this, or a chocobo? I cant find it either
not working
# Nov 08 2003 at 1:40 PM Rating: Default
My friend and I have also been having a hard time with this quest.

We talk to both Evi and the female next to him, but never get the quest.
Is this race/class restricted?

We have rank 2 and have done at least 15 other quests in Bastok.
Please help :)
# Nov 08 2003 at 1:13 PM Rating: Default
Is there a pre-req for this quest? I have checked with Evi everytime I pass by him and he never asks me to get the orders. After talking to him I have gone out to the Windmill and found ??? but it aways says "you thought you saw something but nothing is there"

The key item "Tattered mission orders" can be found in grid G-8, the NW corner of the grid square against a windmill. Just keep hitting TAB or your equivalent key until you see ???. Then press your auto-lock key to face the direction of the item. When you are close enough press enter to pick it up. Make sure your inventory has space .....
