Wow easiest job quest ive solo'd so far LOL

Starting with "A minstrel in despair" quest first (as it tells you in posts further down to head to Valk Dunes and so does the girl in the tavern LOL) then heading to the secret beach (C-6) in the dunes..Both quests link so i dunno why they've made them 'separate' quests..hmm anyway..at lvl 42DRG no agro at all everything was too weak to be worthwhile lol so im sure this could be completed at a lower lvl...YAY!!

This is a 2 part quest...so to speak. You have to do "A Minstrel in Despair First". It's really part 1 of this quest...they seem linked.

Other than the time involved, this was probably the easiest quest for a job. Very easy to solo with no mobs to worry about...if you keep an eye out for gobs. Bst was really easy too though. LOL I was just a 30war/mnk and solo'd both. The gobs were either "Too weak" or "Easy prey". Not that it mattered with my "Neckchopper" great axe and skill 70+. Sturmwind sort of blows mobs away.

Ok, just wanted to put in my 2gil worth. Say Hi if u see me on Alexander.

Really annoyed me when I followed this walkthrough and got to the dunes and the song runes werent doing anything.. so it was even more so a waste of time.. when your going back to the merry minstrel with the poetic parchment, you have to trade it to mertaire.. then I would talk to that mithra in the minstrel too before I headed out to dunes.. then everything will go smoothly.
Help!!

Ok, I have the Old Monument quest completed. It is showing up under my completed quest. I still have the poetic parchment from Buburimu in my inventory though. (I may have done this one earlier, forgot, and started over?) Anyway, I've went to talk to everyone in the Minstrel Shop, and no CS. I can't trade her the parchment either. So I tried going to Valkrum. I get to the Song Ruins and nada... No CS nothing. At that point I went back to Jeuno, and still nothing. Bard is not available in my jobs, and I've asked everyone. Please help!



FYI: I went as 55RDM/33BLM(so it isn't my lvl that is causing any problem)

The western most part of Valkurm Dunes, there is a twisty road that seems to lead to nowhere, it doesn't. It's not on the map but the road leads into a tunnel and the tunnel to a secret beach, again not on the map. the <pos> of the tunnel is C-6 <pos> of secret beach is C-7 and the song runes are at B-7. Again all this is not on the map. Also gobs everywhere, better get a chocobo or sneak/invisible. Note: you cannot access the runes with invis on so be careful.

This is the easiest advanced job quest i think i've seen. It may be time consuming but for a level 30 there is nothing dangerous in ANY of those areas minus some of the bosses. and this quest is even easier when using a choco, of course who wouldn't.

I may pick this as my next job.

Well there are some things that arn't said.You cant do this before 17:00 because the people in the tavern arn't there, as for not being able to get cutscene, target Ruins in burinbu, <the ones near the entrance to bibiki bay> , Press X or enter, and you get cutscene with a NPC named leon heart or something,Then trade the parchment to monument to get Song lyrics, warp back and give em to the crybaby bard or whatever and head to secret beach in valkurum and talk to ruins <no parchment needed> grab that cut scene and ta da bard flag 5100 total gil and a nice walk or warp back to start training brd!

Be aware!! There is 2 monuments in Buburimu Penninsula...

When you first get to Buburimu head over to G-9 and go down to the beach by down hill land. And walk all the way out to the beach. Then take a right, if done correctly, you will end up at a cave around G-10. Entering there, i encontered 2 bogys, which was easily disposed of (only at night). And first click on the monument and u get a cutscene. And you must head back to Jeuno after you get this one, so get a warp scroll. The rest of the information is accurate.

Ok. I have my 30 blm talk to Mertaire and I get the correct response. I talk to Bki Tbujhja and get the next correct response.

I bought my Parchment a head of time, so I wouldn't have to make 2 trips.

I go to Buburimu Peninsula, at the Song Runes on the West side of the beach. I select the Song Runes and all I get is the "Old Monument" response, no cut scene. I tried trading my Parchment to the Song Runes, nothing happens. Probably b/c I have not had the cut scene yet.

Am I doing something wrong?

Did you tade the parchment to the runes, or just activate the ruins. If you got the Old Monument response, you might not have actually traded the item to it.

Can't figure out why that's not working. Make sure you're using Parchment (leathercraft materials) and not Bast Parchment. Bast Parchment will not work. Other than that I don't really know.

I've been having trouble with this seemingly easy quest, too. The mistake I made was in buying a Bast Parchment instead of a Parchment. Bast Parchment will *not* work for this quest.

Parchment is sold in the AH under Materials > Leathercraft.

I've just finished this quest and I must say it is rather easy. After seeing how useful and valuable Bards are in pt's, I was suprised that it was as easy to get.

The price for the parchment was 1.7k on my server. And you get all that back and then some. All in all, a great job with an easy quest.

ok I just tried to do this quest as lvl 34 BLM. I talked to both people in Jeuno, bought the parchment (actually I choco'd to Buburimu without it and had to warp back to get it...ugh) went to the runes in Buburimu (twice), clicked on the runes, got the message "An old momument...blah blah blah" and that's it, no cutscene at all. Tried trading the parchment, nothing happens. What now? The quest doesn't show up in my current list, but someone above said that it's not supposed to until the quest is finished. I talked to both people in the Merry Minstrel and they both said exactly what they were supposed to. Now what? I logged with my character at the runes because I really, really do not want to go back to Jeuno and try this over again...is there something I'm doing wrong?

I thought I would multi-task, and take my Level 14 BLM to get the 2nd Runes (In the Dunes).

It doesnt work, theres no cut-scene, so take youre level 30+ Job for the whole quest.

There is a Gustov Tunnels Zone very close to the 2nd set of runes, just incase you aggroed bats or a gob trying to get there.

There is one thing that annoys me about this guide, it says buy a parchment after checking the song ruins. This is untrue, BUY A PARCHMENT BEFORE GOING TO BUBURIMU PENINSULA. My advice is, since you have to start the quest in jeuno, pick up a parchment there for about 1k and then talk to the guys in the bar and then get a teleport mea from there. I was lucky enough to have bought a parchment before hand. When i got to the runes a bard wannabee was cursing his head off because he realised he had to go back to jeuno then back to the runes.

I wasn't sure if I needed a 2nd parchment, so I bought one just in case (didn't want to trek back to Jeuno if I needed it) but I didn't need it.

So if anyone is wondering, you only need one parchment.

xblink might have to start from the beginning first. The way he descibes it, it's no wonder that it's not working.

You need the click on the song runes in buburimu first, then check it after the cutscene, THEN trade the parchment to the song runes.

Can you turn in the Parshment before you have the quest? I am going near Bubu soon and I would like to cut running down a bit. Thanks!

Upon completion of the Burimbu portion of this, but prior to the Selbina part, you recieve the title "Researcher of Classics."

One of your jobs has to be at least 30 to even get the quest, but you can complete it after you got the quest with any job even if it is level 1 (though kinda hard to get there at 1). Like any advanced quest you have to hit level 30 and get the quest with the level 30. After that doesnt matter.

Lets first assume that you have some job over 30 to start the quest first or whatever. My goal here would be to avoid using warp scrolls and not kill my lvl 30+ job to warp back to save time.

Can I use a lvl 15 rdm to ride chocobo and do parchment trade in then die to warp back? It is very easy to recover xp lost on a lvl 15 rdm so it is perfered to running or purchasing a chocobo to run back.

I just completed this quest using a 26RDM having run from selbina to the cave.

I would say that I snuck past three decent challenge gobs (yes I could have .... but I was feeling lazy) - and then past some sand bats (which also aggro). The secret beach is quite good - I might drag a PT there next time I level in the Dunes.

Your average suicide run character won't get to the monument - unless you're springing for prism powder etc.

It is true that the secret beach is a good PT location. There are a lot of pugils up there and some good camping spots. Its my favorite place in the dunes. ^^
Doable before 30?

The Adv job quests are one of the few quests (subjob, chocobo, and job artifacts are others) that are based directly off your level and not your fame. So you wont be able to initiate the quest with anything ohter than a lvl 30+ job.
Easiest way

easiest way is to goto your home town..and purchase a scroll of warp for 750 conquest points...goto Jeuno...bind in jeuno..take Chocobo out to Buru..do that stuff..use warp scroll..talk to the guy again..then go out to Valkurm on Chocobo and finish...
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 15 2004 at 7:20 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I said at lvl 15 it is impossible to get runes unless lvl 20 job and get a liscense >< I meant chocobo ^^

For one, at lvl 15 it is impossible to get runes unless u have a job at lvl 20 and have the lescense. Ive tried to get the buburimu runes and it didnt work, Besides u must get the bubu runes go back to jeuno then go to valk BUT, then u dont have to go back, once in Valk and u are at the runes there is a cut scene leading to u being able to be a bard ;) no need to go back to Jeuno
