Summary

Walkthrough

Dietmund is at G-11, in the house right above the chocobo stables. He will come out when you open the merchant's door and ask you to bring him some night flowers. Then go to the the Upper Jeuno Chocobo Stables and talk to Shallot.

To get the flowers, you need to go to Qufim Isle and look for a path down the cliff at location F-8 (you can't get flower while invis). Wait for nightfall (22:00) and then walk down the path and look for the glowing nightflowers. The flowers is guarded by a Kraken; no worries, have Sneak casted on yourself or use a Silent Oil and you will be perfectly safe. Click on the flower and it will trigger a cut scene. After the cutscene, go talk to the sick kid at his house, then go talk to Brutus at the Chocobo house in Upper Jeuno and you will be flagged to be able to change jobs to Beastmaster. If you go back to where you first spoke to Dietmund, his now healthy son will give you a Beast Whistle and 2100 gil. After you receive the money and whistle you may go to Brutus (Upper Jeuno, G-7 at the Chocobo Stables) and speak to him.

First I talked with Shalott. Then went to Lower Jeuno and went to the house. The quest was just that easy with "Silent Oil" (had a stack...only needed 2...1 there and one back). Now when I got back to Jeuno got the cs, and at the end of that cs got the whitle and gil. Then talked with Butus and back to the house for a last "Thank You." Got the flag after speaking with Brutus.

If u have invisible/sneak spell or similair potions u can do this at level 1, there is no fighting required.

Unfortunately i died the first time tryin because i saw Kraken 2 late, second time i casted Sneak, looked if there was no gob nearby and dropped Invisible... and the quest was over before i could blink my eyes.

Congratulations, u got yourself a nice advanced job! My first advanced as i write. :)

This was maybe the quickest quest i have ever completed. I also solo'd it with a 40SAM/20THF. Didn't use oil or powder and I also defeated the Kraken alone. Try it..... it's easy.

I did this in sorta of a hurry. I got the cs at the house then realzed that i had like 5~7 mins left of nighttime. So i am talkin to my ls debating if i should go or not, so i did. On my way i got an aggro by a goblin bounty hunter, i said that aint gonna stop me. So i keep running with it on me and get 2 other links. Still not gonna stop me. I ran to the kraken and got aggro and clicked the flower's really quick. The cs popped up along with a buddy of mine. He killed my aggro while i was in the cs. So i come out of the cs, thinking hey i should be alright. A goblin bounty hunter comes down and aggros me while i have 25 health and kills me. So i'm thinking **** those bounty hunters... I walk to brutus and finish the cs, and i am now able to get beastmaster. But watch out for those bounty hunters, -_-.

Did this today as a 30 Whm/Blm. Pretty easy- never fought anything. Like it said- sneak right by the kraken, just make sure there aren't any gobs around. I did spend over 200 MP just casting sneak and invisible just to get to the thing.

I did this quest last night, and it was a lot easier because when i got there someone was fighting the kraken. So that was one less thing to worry about. After the cut scene, a goblin bounty hunter decides to aggro me. Thankfully Avoo was kind enough to grab it's attention off of me so I could make a get away.

Thanks Avoo

I did with a level 44PLD LS mate. I was level 34BLM/WHM. He just took hate and attacked while I cured him/cast Blizzaga on Kraken. Very easy fight. Blizzaga was doing 220 damage each time.

I had the same problem with Brutus. I zoned twice. Came back. He said something about the chocobo first time. I spoke to him again, and got BST flag.

Ok heres one for you...I went to get the quest save my son and after talking to Dietmund i went straight to Quifim Island and picked the flowers...I then gt the scene with Dietmund running up to you and the chocobo coming to help dig for the flowers...i then went back to Jeuno and spoke to Dietmunds son and recieved the beast whistle and 2100 gil...the save my son quest is now marked as complete i then went to tlk to Brutus and recieved a scene about wild chocobo's living in La Theine i was then asked to set a chocobo free? this is where i got confused, so i set the chocobo free and now have a quest about bringing the chocobo back and am not flaged as a best master and talking to Brutus again just makes him say please bring back the chocobo good luck...

any ideas?

btw the quest i got from Brutus is called Chocobo on the Loose

Same thing happened to me.

What I did was zone to lower jeuno, then kept talked to Brutus. The first time he said something about the chocobo, and the second time I got the cutscene and became a beastmaster. I had already talked to Brutus 3 or 4 times before I zoned so I think zoning should do it.

Perfect Dodge
# Aug 03 2006 at 8:42 PM Rating: Decent
6 posts
Ok I got a chance to test my theory on perfect dodge. I works great and if you set your home point at the lower jeuno gate you end up right where you need to be to finish the quest. Here's how it works.

THF lvl 1
Get close to the Kraken without aggroing it right at the bend where you can first see it is good.
Make sure it is the right time for the nightflower bloom after 22:00.
Use perfect dodge make sure you didn't use your 2 hour on your other job already. (you might want to make a macro for it)
Run up to the nightflower and touch it.
The Kraken will aggro you but it won't damage you.+
When you get the cut scene the Kraken can't kill you.
Cutscene is finished and the Kraken kills you.
Homepoint and talk to the npcs. Done. :)

You could do the exact same thing with lvl 1 PLD and invincible. Sleep may work too but you still have to worry about when the Kraken wakes up and it will chase you, and you have to be extra careful of giants and such. With a lvl 1 THF it is cheap (no silent oils and you don't have to worry about losing any xp. It does take some stealth to get there at lvl 1 but lvl 30 jobs would still have to sneak by giants and most other mobs there too. If you are a lvl 30 rdm or whm I still suggest this method over sneak. You don't risk losing 500 plus xp and by dying and home pointing you save a scroll of instant warp or a long walk back.

Bind won't work because the Kraken can hit you when you go by and when you are standing by the night flowers. Bind usually doesn't last long on high lvl mobs either so by the time you are done with the cutscene it will no longer be bound.

I did this quest originally as a 30rdm using sneak and I barely made out. It's not worth the risk of losing that much xp.

Other posting talk about using any level one job but it is very difficult to get to the flower before the Kraken can hit you. There is a chance you will get killed and have to go all the back there again. If you have thf or pld level one it makes it so much easier. You don't want to waste time sneaking over to the Kraken any more times than necessary.

6 posts
Not sure if this would really work or not but if you want to save money on sneak oils it's worth a try. Use thf lvl 1 if you haven't leveled it or pld level 1. Get as close to the Kraken as you can and make sure it is the right time. Use Perfect Dodge or Invincible then run up and touch the flower as soon as possible. You should get throught the cutscene ok then it will probably kill you. If you set your homepoint in lower jeuno then just homepoint and you are right near the merchant's house so finishing the quest is easy. Like I said I haven't tested this theory if Kraken attacks you with magic you will die. If you wanna save some money this may work.


I used 30 rdm and someone had killed it before I got down there. I touched the flower got the cutscene. After the cutscene I see Kraken with his back to me. And the red words come up saying sneak is about to wear off. I start to use my scroll of instant warp which isn't feeling so instant at the moment. After a couple seconds sneak wears off and Kraken turns toward me. All I could think was oh crap. Kraken hit me 3 times for 140 damage each and then by some miracle warp kicked in and I made it out alive. 1 more hit was all it would have taken. Talk about lucky. Thank you to whom ever killed the Kraken before I got there.
level 40 drk thankyou!

Well, I have just done this quest, didn't even have to fight the Kraken, just walked past it! I think I was lucky for no aggro. All I had to do was use a silent oil before going down the cliff. The hardest part was trying not to bump into the Kraken. ^^ BST DONE

I am having the same problem. I visited Dietmund and I saw his son, but he only talked about the chocobo. Now he only says "You again? How many times do I gotta tell ya? That chocobo's mine. Go tell him I want it back, or else." I went to Brutus and he only says "If you can read their minds, you might have what it takes to be a beastmaster. But no teachin' can help you there... No sirree!" Shalott says "They learn your scent after you feed them by hand each and every day for a really long time."

I have completed the "Chocobo's Wounds" and the "Chocobo on the Loose!" quests. I also went down to the flowers and it said "Now that night has fallen, the flowers bloom with a strange glow." I don't have the BST flag quest listed under "Current Quests" either.

Can someone help me? I really wanna try out this job and this quest is supposed to be easy. ;)

Soloed as soon as I got my first char to 30 (RDM). Cast sneak and you can walk right around the Kraken. You'll get to the flowers, trigger the cutscene, and be done with the "hard" part of your quest. At the end of the cutscene, you still have sneak, and are untouched.

BST woo :D

I was waiting by the kraken, having a nice discussion, when the flowers started glowing at around 21:10. I thought about it for a second, then decided to check them out. I got the cutscene.

You don't need to wait until 22:00. I'm now curious how early they do start glowing. 20:00 is the undead start time, so I would guess that would be the trigger time for the flowers as well.

The directions were great. walked halfway down the path and used a sneak on my 30/15 WAR/MNK. I walked right up to the kraken, got my flowers. This was easier than the ranger quest. Thanks guys

Well i did this today since i had gotten my lvl to 30 yesterday. First thing i did was buy some silent oils and some prism powder to avoid an aggro. I got down to the hill and it was around 11:00 vana time and I waited. By the it was 20:00 another guy was there and ran around the edge to where the Kraken was. I checked him and he was a lvl 32 whm. I thought to myself,"He's dead." Then he came back around the corner and thought, "He had sneak on..." When 22:00 came around I used a silent oil and ran around the corner to find the flowers and stragely no Kraken. I viewed the cutscene and that was the end of it but I did wonder where did the Kraken go because I saw it before I ran down there.
THF is good for getting this quest.

I just did this yesterday (Just got my First job to 30, so i'm trying to get the extra Jobs)
anyway, I didn't have a lot of exp so if i died i would de-leveled, so i changed to THF/RDM, they were both lvl 1, Don't know why RDM, and THF wasn't attentional.

anyway, I would recomend people who havn't done this, or are going to unlock BST to Change to THF, head to the ramp dovy (Heading Down to the flowers) before night fall, to avoid the weights and all that, and wait for the right time, then run in, and use your 2 hour ablity, Perfect Dodge, I did that, and it was very effective, got to watch the Cutsceen as well as run back the way i came...I died with one hit ^_^

But i got it non the less.

Don't know if someone has said this before, but it's a good plan if a) Your too poor to buy sneak item (Forget it's name) or b) you arn't a whm (Or is it RDM?) with Sneak.

i did this quest. I was fishing while waiting for the correct time to the see the flowers bloom. Another fellow role player showed up to get his part of this quest accomp. Well I saw at 5 minutes early (nightfall (22:00) the flowers bloom. I clicked on the flower and the cut scene played through, when through I walked towards the beach directly away there, and saw the still not moving other player "hmm.. must be viewing cut scene still. I started backup the path and all of a sudden he comes running past me and scoots up and around out of sight running as fast as he can towards the safety of Jeuno. LOL the powerful Kraken (can you say sea horror !) had dumped his hate on him. I walked back to Jeuno watching the train of MOBs gather behind him.
He made it through the last mountain pass. I know cause that is where I saw his ko'ed bod. I ran to the tunnel. Finished the quest, got my bst flag.
cool huh.

I did this two nights ago, using a lvl1 job and two Silent Oils. Qufim mobs are almost all sound-aggro, with the exception of gigas/giants, which i believe aggro to sight. There's some magic aggro too, but it's not relevant if you use this method.

I used the first Silent Oil as I left the tunnel into Qufim proper at 10pm Vanadiel time, and headed directly west as quickly as possible (autorun), giving any gigas a wide berth. The Oil wore off just as I hit the path down to the kraken's cave, which was fine - the path is very quiet, with no mobs until you get to the cave. I stopped, used the second Oil, hit the cave, targeted the flowers, and got the cutscene. Once it was done, I attacked the kraken and got one-hit back to my HP in Jeuno, with no xp loss (lvl 1) ^^.

One more tip - buy the two Oils you need for this before you arrive in Jeuno, as they are double normal price there, at least on my server.

Good luck! :)

well, I tried this as a LV40 PLD solo... and died. I used my 2hr, shield bash, Sentinel, all my mp... but at least I had the presence of mind to grab the flowers with 19 hp left. I got the subjob and a quick ride back to my hp in jeuno. ;)

The story of this quest follows on from the Chocobo quest so I think it is a prerequisite that you have finished it.

I just did this quest as 48WHM/24BLM. I put sneak on and went and sat happily under the Kraken, it was Easy Prey to me. It didn't aggro and at 22:00 the flowers glowed, got the cut scene and no problems whatsoever! :)
