~ Every 6ish stacks = 2 lvl's of Fame.
*Any RDM/BLM over 50 can do this easy w/ by warping to the HP East of Tokaka. In the Zone. Still takes awhile tho.
Refresh > Convert > Warp

I started w/ lvl 3 Fame. Traded In 12 stacks and Bumped It up to lvl 7.
And w/ 15 stacks I had Hero Fame.
So lvl 0-9 fame would = 27ish total stacks.

Does the guild sell sardines all the time. I was there before it opened at 3, and there was 1 other who seemed afk (just stood there even after a good 20 min store was open) and the Bastore Sardines where nowhere on the list. They had bream, and sliced sardines but thats it.

What I did was set my HP next to the orastery in port windhurst (the same area this quest is in) and everytime I traded a fish, I would warp and take the 30 seconds it takes to walk back. Much faster than warping to another area or using the npc to warp.

Attention people : I have confirmed that it is NOT faster to use the warp npc. I timed runs each way. Through zoning to windurst waters, It took 1:53:08, wheras through warping, it took 1:56:66. This may not make that much of a difference, but the delay can depend on your computer speed. Plus, through traditional zoning, if you have a theif at 25, you can flee every 5 minutes, speeding it up; and that's my 2 gil.

Outpost warping helps to ya know. Started in my home country of sandy, OP warped to Vakurm Dunes, walked to selbina, bought fish for 26gil each, walked back to valkurm OP, warped to sandoria, warped to saurtabaruta, then walked to port. Brought like 150+ fish with me. Each sardine gave me 70 gil, thats 49gil profit.

I don't understand why Windurst Warping is so unknown or unused. Why do you zone for this quest? All you have to do is talk to Machu-Kuchu in E-7, which is a lot closer than the zone. This NPC warps you to Windurst Walls in J-11, where you can warp right back talking to Komulili.

You can also Warp between Windurst Waters and Windurst Woods. The NPC's are Pattsu-Yabittsu in Windurst Woods K-12 and Tonana in Windurst Waters G-8

-_- This quest makes me wish I'd have stuck with THF for flee and such... Anyways, is it the higher level you are, the more fame you need to get to another level? Or does it stay the same? I've heard a bit of both sides, but at level 5 it's starting to seem like it has no effect at all. I'm an impatient elvaan summoner that wants to get Ramuh and some other avatars before I go back to Valkurm (twitch).

As a thief i can say that it is only moderately easier to do this awful repetitive quest. Flee regenerates every 5 minutes so you can only use it about once every 3 trips from the zone to Tokaka. But it's true that it is nice as Flee covers exactly the space from the zone to the NPC.

Rank gets harder to level up just like experience points for levelling up jobs. It takes longer the higher you get

Sadly, on this week, Bastok Music Shop wasnt selling Cornettes anymore... so i turn to this quest to get Rank 3 Fame (Aspir) and Rank 4 fame (Teles' Mea & Yhoat quests)

I had 0 fame at windy.

With 3 stacks of Sardines i was able to reach Rank 3.

With another 3 stacks of Sardines i was able to reach rank 4.

Total of 6 stacks to get to Rank 4 windy fame with this quest to me (Caitsith server)

Its a very slow process coz u have to zone everytime, but the quests u can get w/ this are worthy ^^ .

The price of the sardines depend on the supply and demand of the sardines, just liek every guild shop. If they sell out the previous day, the price will be the maximum. If they closed with full stock, the price will be the minimum. I'm sure 77g is the maximum, so if it is that price, just come back another day.

I'm doing this quest now to get lv4 fame for me teleport scroll. First, I bought a bunch of fishing stuff: tunic, pants, gloves, and boots. I also got a carbon rod and a sabiki rig. I started with lv0 fishing and got it up to lv2 while fishing for these sardines. In the time I got 74 sardines (6 stacks and 2 leftovers) I got 2 stacks of quus, about 6 kelp, and 1 rusty legging. It might have taken me about 3 hours to fish up this much stuff. Then I started doing the trading/zoning part of the quest. In 1 hour I traded a total of 26 of my 74 sardines to her and could not take the torture of running back and fourth any more that night. I went with the warp to Windurst Waters path, which took about 2 minutes and 30 seconds per complete run I did, although it seemed a lot longer. I think I'm gonna trade my last 4 stacks to the lady in sets of twos, breaking them up evenly over the course of two days so as to keep my brain from liquefying and dripping out of my ears. Good luck to anyone else who is doing this, and prepare yourself for a very long day.

I did the quest once a long while ago. SO now I need asipir, and I came back, I have about 8-9 stacks of sardines I fished a while ago and figured this would be perfect for fame.

But he wont give me the quest anymore? I tried running out to Sarutabaruta- no quest. Zoned to Waters- no quest, Warped to HP in port- no quest.

Am I doing something wrong?

As for why your quest isnt working my suggestion is that you may have cut him off before he finished talking (you have to talk to the taru before trading each time).

He puts in a long pause before his last sentence "So, if you happen to catch yourself...."

I know i skipped that speech and thus couldnt trade to him. hope that helps

Does this quest give a title?
# Aug 11 2004 at 5:28 AM Rating: Default
I completed this quest about 30x, and while waiting for mp to regen, I thought to check what title it left me with... and saw that my title was "Crab Crusher" from running thru the bubbling bernie quest a few times earler to raise bastok fame.

Do some quests not give titles? This also seems to raise fame slowly, as 2.5 stacks of sardines havent changed the fame npc's reaction to me.

I'm getting scared by putting no-title-change + no-fame-change together, that i've wasted a couple hours (unless you call 100 profit on a 600 gil stack of fish over an hour lucrative).

Aye, it doesnt change your title, but adds to fame. I had a similar concern doing this recently. It seems to give 1/3 of a fame point for each quest completion (or something close to that). I raised fame from 2 to 4 using only this quest, and a lot of patience. At first I got scared that nothing was happening, but finally my fame raised. What confused me was that someone told me each completion raised .5 fame points, so i expected results too soon.

theres a home point at (F-7) that you can warp to instead of zoning, if you have the spell. Saves some time, mostly by eliminating the second pause from zoning twice. Sucks that Warp costs 100 MP though. If only a hi-ether were the reward.

I recently did this quest to raise my fame in Windy from 0 to 4. This quest is not so annoying as some people say, especially because the home point in F-7 is really very close to Tokaka.

I have 407 MP and I just kept repeating the same things: trade the bastore sardine, warp to HP, come back. When my MP was 7 (after 4 warps) I just healed and, meanwhile, did some real-life stuff. Even doing that, I took about 3 hours to repeat this quest 80 times.

It's worth noticing that you must talk to Tokaka every time before trading the sardine. This is what really slows the process down.

Fastest way to zone

The fastest way to zone is not by running to West Sarutabaruta or Windust Water.
You can use Machu-Kuchu's free teleport service (E-7) to warp to Windust wall and warp back.

That's not really faster. With the added time of talking to each Taru warper, and choosing yes, then waiting for the second warper to load, and warping back... you actually lose a little time. Zoning to Waters is slightly faster, as you can turn around and zone right back before everything loads, no talking to 2 NPCs.

A friend and I tested it, and you'll save about 2 seconds per trip just zoning to Windurst Waters.
Yes, it may be a slightly longer run, but the trip is effectively shorter.

Saving 1.5-2 seconds per trip really adds up the more fish you're trading in a single set of runs.

I probably only needed 1 or 2 stacks, but ran 5 stacks just to be safe.

EDIT: typos (Edits make for dbl posts o.0)

What does MP have to do with running? the words "zone" and "turn around" mean that he ran to the zone then turned around and ran back... not warp...

Er, this is a small mistake, but Tokaka isn't a guy ..

Didn't you people read the issue of the Vana'diel Tribune that talked about Tarutaru names?

At any rate, the easiest way to tell the difference? Guys have a hyphen in their name.
Advice:

If you are interested in raising your fishing skill while doing this quest, you can fish for the bastore sardines right next to the quest giver.

I'd strongly advise, if you are going to take up fishing, buy a rod that won't break, and a sabiki rig. You can catch up to 3 sardines at once and don't have to worry about buying bait.

To find a rod that won't break, try this site:

Good Luck!

Yeah, you don't have to catch the fish to finish the quest. You can buy them, but you might end up losing some gil in the process...>.<

Plus, you (usually) will also gain some fishing skill! ^^

You do have to rezone after you give Tokaka the fish, otherwise she will keep telling you that the fisherman will cook her (your sardine) up tonite!

She will ALWAYS tell you that your fish is too small, but she still keeps it, and gives you compensation for it (70 gil).


But generally, the price is higher in vendors and AH. The fish vendor sells it for 77 gil on my server, and the AH sells it for 100(also, my server) a pop.

SquarEnix changed the price of the sardines, before it used to be under 70 gil if you buy it from the fishing guild vendor.

((If you have the "Blast from the Past" quest, she will send you to Yoran-Oran, but if you talk to her again, she will give you the Sardine quest.))

The only th8ing this is worth is increasing your fishing skill, then increasing your fame. This is one of the 3 key fame quests(i.e., it takes 3 quests to max fame in all cities...this is one of them). But, does anyone know the title you get from this?
did they change this?

exploit
# Jan 24 2004 at 7:59 AM Rating: Default
the money sux, seriously but its an exploit for fame, not money. its faster than the other repeatables where you have to kill stuff. and remember, windurst fame adds to mhaura fame

Not exploit in anyway. Quest like this help high lvl players gain fame to unlock quests (ex. Summoner quests).

Exploit would gain players something for little or no risk.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 19 2004 at 4:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) your probably better off auctioning it at AH. I traded 12 sardine and only got 70 gils.. not worth it....would be if he counted each..

I wouldn't exactly call this an exploit....
70 gils.. big deal..
If you feel like spending your entire day zoning and repeating this quest, so be it.

lugworms work, generally for any of the stuff you can fish there.

probably sabiki lure as well, etc.

You must talk to the Mithra Thubu Parohren (just behind Tokaka at the Fisherman's Guild) and sign up before Tokaka will give you this quest or accept any Bastore Sardines from you.

I was able to turn in a sardine before signing up with the guild.

You do not need to be part of fishing guild to do the quest, but it won't hurn to be in the guild.

what do you need to catch Sardines? Or does it matter?

I did this quest the 1st time, and I recieved 90 gil. I am a member of the fishing guild. After giving the fish, the NPC says the fishermen will make a nice meal of it. Then, the next game day I did it again and recieved 70 gil. They use these fish to determine the fishing conditions, so I assume you can do this each game day. So, for any newbies like me, that's 70-90 gil each day.

I just finished an AWFULLY long day of doing this quest using BLM34/WHM. With equip, max MP is 331.

After a few tries running to Waters and back I decided to use the Warp-to-HP method. I only had enough MP for 3 Warps at a time, but it still saved me a lot. I could've used some juices though. If you're not worried about gil and you have a BLM 17+, buy yag drinks or juice and go that route. It WILL save you time.

You can do this quest as many times per game-day as you can logistically fit. I split my time up (went to work and came home, checked AH every now and then) and I think over-all I went from 0 to 3 fame. That's with four stacks of sardines.

At three stacks I still couldn't get Aspir, and at four I could. Given the fact that I bought all my stacks at the guild (WITHOUT joining, btw) for 45 per sardine, I scored 25g per sardine, which works out to 1.2k. So is it a gil exploit? Not hardly. But it IS a good (if boring and tedious) way to get fame in Windurst and maybe clear some gil while you're at it.

I haven't yet checked Mhaura, but all my sources indicate fame there will have increased as well. I recommend this quest for anyone who needs to devote a few hours to building fame for whatever reason.

(I'll be going back to do this once again when I need my Teleports.)

One can do this once only, I believe- and you can buy the sardine off the merchant right behind Tokaka. :)

I guess this was an exploit.
The other day when i did this, I KNOW the sardine on the merchant was 45 gil.

She gives you 70 GIL.
As another poster says, you can zone and do the quest AGAIN! At the time I did not know this.

It was evidnetly fixed LAST NIGHT. Today I got on and checked, after she gave me the quest again, the sardine on th vendor was 77 GIL!

So we know what happened I guess, we darn exploiting americans found out about this quest and I bet someone was buying, giving to her then doing the quest for profit, then zoning. At like 25 gil a shot you can see how they'd build up some money if bored.

lol prices at guilds change every in game day, thats why it shot up to 77gil. 25 gil is not so great you can get that from 4 low level gobs in about the time it would take you to zone, assuming you have a character of atleast level 14.

LOL you're on crack if you think people are exploiting this for a measley 30gil each attempt... and it requires rezoning!
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 12 2003 at 12:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) lol 25 gil isnt a exploit no one would do this. I know possibilities to get 4 k per zone thats more exploit ^^

So you still make money if you buy it from the vendor lady. However, having to run and zone to get the quest again makes this really not worth the 30 gil or so you get.
