don't lower your just earned fame

many people have reported having to bring drastically different numbers of yag necklaces to achieve their desired fame. just be careful that you are not fighting yourself. make sure you have completed getting your fame in other cities first. or if you try to do the easy selbina quest "only the best" to raise fame in jueno, basty, and sandy and turn in boyahda moss it will lower your just earned norg fame. so make sure you are not raising your fame levels of different cities at the same time. get jueno done first.
Quest completion....?

Okay, here goes:

Norg Fame level: 4
Rice Ball price at Tenshodo in L. Jeuno: 153g

Yesterday: Triggered quest, went to ??? place in Sea Serpent Grotto, got cutscene with Gen or whoever(Ghost ninja?), obtained Key Item: Sea Serpent Statue, went back to Norg (via deathwarp), talked to Lasirean (Quest Giver), no cutscene, nothing received, didn't even acknowledge what i did. Zoned out and back in, still nothing.

Today: Checked with Lasirean again, nothing new, so went back to Giddeus, got 24 more necklaces, warped back to Norg, talked to Lasirean, still nothing. Just for the heck of it, zoned back out, came back in, still nothing. Checked fame level again, still level 4 fame. Turns out I ended up receiving Leviathan quest for SMN and tuning fork of water.

So, any ideas?

why does everyone seem to think that nin is a tank god? to be honest, theyre not that great. they cant keep hate, they take uber damage when their shadows are down, plus, to be one, u have to have huge sacks of gil...

Asker: <party> <do you need it?>

Me: <Utsusemi> <I have nothing to give you>

Asker: thats ok, we don't need a tank

next pt

Asker: <Party> <Do you need it?>

Me: <Utsusemi> <I have nothing to give you>

Asker: nin tanks aren't very good, we got a pld

so yea, sorry ninja's but we aren't gods of the battle filde. I don't play by the job rules, and not every pt will take me. But I"m not going to stop having fun just couse one group won't take me, I'll wait for the group that will and as you can see there are some that will. :3

I kinda agree with the Nin not being that great. (75 Pld 50 Nin here).

/war is a great subjob for all melee jobs. If you are a sub 60 Drk/Sam/Mnk/Pld/Nin/ you really need to have the job leveled. It's so annoying when playing with a Sam/Thf or a Drk/Thf and you try to SATA setup with a Thf/Nin and can't because the Sam/Thf has a level 4 Warrior subjob. If you don't have it adequetly leveled and you are a Melee, you are not doing your party any favors.

A few things i'd like to put out there.

1. As far as I know, fame will affect prices immediately, though how many are purchased on one day will only affect the price they are on the next game day. I did 6 necklace turn-ins, checked the price (158) which was the same price I'd been quoted after turning in 150 or so necklaces from several days earlier. On the same game day, I made 6 more turn-ins and and the zinc twice. then i checked the price before the game day was over and it dropped to 152, and it was then that i could get my quest. So you can use rice balls as a guage, just not over the course of several game days, I think.

2. Every time I was doing a turn in of necklaces, I'd talk to Nanaa at least once. Until my very last 6 turn-ins, she would say something about a stone she was examining. after my last set of turnins, she said something else. I don't remember exactly what, but it might just be a sign that you made a higher level of fame.

How many shadows does this actually give you? From the description it sounds like only one; so I would guess that it's similar to Third Eye for SAM.

It gives you three shadows.

Just to throw everyone for a loop...

Got all quests except Utsusemi (of course, the only one I really want...) and Hojo with the price of rice balls sitting at 163g. Traded in 112 yag necklaces; never done the zinc quest or the sneaking-past-customs quest.

And to unlock Jubaku you must have a Damp Scroll in your possession. You can have all the fame you want, you won't get the quest unless you have that. ^^

I am trying to do the quest for Utsu, and friends of mine have told me that I should only need to farm about 200 yag necklaces...

I've turned in about 224 and Laisrean only talks about the odd things that remind him of the diverse world.

I have very little or no fame in bastok (if that matters.) I have done the Ninja flag quest but thats about it for Norg related stuff.

Where can I check the riceball price? and what else might i have to do?

Ok to sum up:
Zinc Ore = 0.5g - from Rice Ball price.
Yagudo Necklace = 0.25 - from Rice Ball Price.
Airship Smuggling = 0.75 - from Rice Ball Price.

Utsusemi Ichi can be obtained at 159g each.
BUT you need to have done Tonko, Kurayama, Dokumori, Jabaku, Hojo...

(This is how i did mine, couldnt get quest until i had all others, Checked Rice Ball price before ending Utsusemi Quest (159g)

Personally i think the Zinc Ore quest is by far the most worth-while, loads of fame for minimum effort, all worms around the world drop zinc ores, with TH1 they can drop more than 1 a time so i farmed them in korroloka tunnel.
I wouldnt try doing the Airship Smuggling quest from San d'oria because you can have your Airship Boarding License revoked for 24 hours RL (which absolutely sucks unless you aren't intending on partying in the next 24 hours) but you can try take the risk if you want, the quest is pretty much random on getting through customs (arrivals entrance door) without getting caught. but you will need rank 5 or 500k to burn (Airship Pass sold in Lower Jeuno Map stall for 500.000 gil)

happy hunting guys!

P.S: FYI to my lv60DRK some of the mobs down in sea serpent's grotto up to the ??? for utsusemi quest appear as easy prey (non agro) so if your below that, silent oils are a good thing to have, especialy seeing as 3 Sea Bonze's (lv47-50) pop in the ??? room.

Let me state for the record that in order to get the Tonko quest, Riceball price should be in the 158-157 area, for Utsusemi quest, get it to 152 just to be sure, b/c when i went @ 153, it still wasn't enough, so I had to do the "Like shining Leggings" quest there in Norg, Not fun or cheap. Yag necklaces are the best, i did 104 yag necklaces and around 28-32 or so Zinc ores.

For the Utsusemi quest, please remember to get your Pots of Sneak Oil. I used 4 and barely got by, save yourself the trouble and get 5 just in case... the Sahagins down there show you no mercy

I would also like to state for the record that Ninja job is NOT CHEAP, I repeat, NOT CHEAP! If you plan on leveling this one, be ready to pay up for powders like "Uchitake" and "Kawahori-Ogi" both running for 15k-20k here in Hades.

Other than that, Enjoi... ^_^

handed in 176 or so yagudo bead necklaces, became a tenshodo member and had lvl 3 norg fame.
did the rusty subligar, rusty leegings and tonko ichi quests and still had lvl 3 fame. Checked the rice ball price and it was at 153 at this time. Went to bastok handed in 9 zincs (1 for the first time)and killed the leeches in korrolaka tunnel for nin quest. Went to norg and had enough fame to do the quest. Did it then went to bastok to finish up the nin quest.

Ok people, I had absolutely no fame in Bastok or Norg. I needed the Ninja scrolls so I can level Ninja. I started the quest "Shady Business". With absolutely no fame in Norg, you will have to do the quest 25 times to get the Tonko: Ichi quest. You will have to do it 5 more times to get the Utsusemi: Ichi quest. All in all, you must do the quest 30 times to get both quests. I hope this helps^^

fame in norg is directly connected to bastok fame. i have maxed out my fame in bastok and when it came time to do the yag necklaces or the zinc quest i did about 40 necklaces and the zinc quest once. i had enough fame to do the tonko quest ... after that i had enough to do uts. and so on. hope that helps

I can't see how this can be accurate. I got my fame level in all cities to at least level 4 in order to do the Teleport quests. Windy is 5, Bastok is 4, Sandy is 8. However, I have no Norg fame. The guy had no clue who I was.

Whoever said that the rice ball prices are unreliable is completely correct. After doing many yag necklace runs (didn't count, sorry), joining the Tenshodo, unlocking ninja, and starting (but not completing) the samurai flag quest, my rice ball price was at 158. I decided to head to Norg anyway. To my surprise, I activated all of the NIN scroll quests (Tonko, Utsusemi, Kurayami, Hojo, and Dokumori) except Jubaku from Shivivi. The rice balls may give you a hint about how much fame you have, but the bestway to see if you can get Utsusemi is to make a trip to Norg and talk to Laisrean directly.

From the ornamented door you would take the path to the left. Keep sneak up and go into the large room. Stay along the left wall. There will be another cave entrance.

Follow that path down into the next large room. Hug the left wall and there will be another cave entrance. Bypass that for now it leeds to a dead end doughnut shaped room.

After bypassing that room entrance stay along the left wall until you enter a small opening. It looks like a dead end. That is the silver door. Keep examining it until you get the msg that you see some small silver shavings.

Trade your silver beastcoin and the path will open up for you to go to the room for the Utsusemi quest.

Once you go through the silver door the path is pretty windy. You can keep track of your POS by typing in <pos> You want to follow the path until you reach H-8 there should be a ledge you can fall off of to the right. Just follow that path to the north until you reach a dead end wall. There will be an unmarked door you can click on. In that room is the ??? as well as a Sea Bonze so be careful.

Bring the key item back to Norg and the scroll is yours.

To get back just exit the room and go to the south. There will be another ledge ro drop off of. FAll and continue South until you are in a large room. In the W/SW corner there will be yet another ledge. Fall off it and you will be back in the donut room that is just to the north of where the silver door is. Exit that room and go to the right. The path to Norg should be easy.

I've got a fever, and the only prescription is...more COWBELLâ„¢!!

You need to talk to the Mithra as you enter the front door. She should say something and you should have the option of "Show me your wears" this is where the rice balls.. I think you might also have to be a Tenshudo member.

Rice balls also have to be around 153gil for you to have enough fame.. I did just this got the price down to 152-153 and got all 6 quests

No. Casting this causes you to gain the effect of Blink.

The shadows Copy Image creates absorb all attacks except for a few AoEs, whereas Blink's shadows just give a high chance of absorbing the same attacks.

I've talked to the lady in Tenshodo HQ many times and I haven't seen any rice balls up for sale, so I can't check my fame there. Is there anything I can do to get them to appear?

You need to join the Tenshodo in order to have any Tenshodo fame. here's what to do:
1. Speak to the Mithra at the Tenshodo. There will be 3 options but you only see 2. The 3rd is invisible. Select it.
2. Go buy a Tenshodo invite at the AH. They're fairly cheap (about 3k). You can also quest it if you want. Either way it's a return investment.
3. Trade the Tenshodo invite to the Mithra. You are now a member of the Tenshodo and you get another Tenshodo invite in return so you've lost nothing and gained a whole lot. ^^ Hope this helps.

they dont go to kazham at lvl 1 they either change jobs in kazham (but that would be pointless because you have to go to the grotto if i remember correctly so you cant choco then) or they change jobs at a nomad moogle in norg.

OK, This might be a noobish (twitch) suggestion, but I think the spell description should say next 3 attacks. If (BIG IF) one didn't know how many shadows Utsusemi: Ichi made, this could look exactly like a Third Eye type of effect. Just trying to prevent confusion.
Speech the creators envisioned:
Hiro: Hello, I am about to persue the infamous Dread Dragon, is there no adventurer brave enough to aid me in my quest?
Speech the gamers use:
Hirox: Hay every1, i'm gunna go kill dread dragon, anybody wna *** with?

I finally got this hairpuller of a quest done!! Mind you I got an afro...Kinda hard to do that.. 200 Yagudo beads still wasn't enough fame!!! So...I did one of the easy quests, I recommend the leggiings one easy.. then NPC is like hey its you! I died twice for this.. I got it on attempt three, with the help of one of my homies in real life(70+ pld), thank you.. Higher ups turn down help fast.. I mean fast... I highly recommend getting help doing this and 2 stacks of silent oil.. good luck.. and may your nation be with you..
stealing for a living and loving it.

Ok so i finaly got enouph fame to unlock the utsusemi quest in norg but I got my fame not by farming the 200 yag beads but by gathering 120 zinc ores and trading them to talib located in port bastock in warehouse 2 at the bottom of the steps. I farmed about 10 zinc ores before I got fed up and spent 60k on the rest of the ores i needed, I bought all the ores in about two cities.
When the AH ran out of zinc ores I shouted if anyone was selling them I would buy them directly off and to my surprise I got most of my ores that way which turned out well because some people sold them to me at 300 gil a piece while at AH they were 500-800 and some one knowing i needed them bumped the price up to 1k gil a piece but by that time I only needed one more so I didnt mind spending the 1k to get my last ore lol, My lvl 61 thf friend thought i was crazy since he thought it wouldnt work but i did it in the same amount of time it took him to get 200 beads and he had help carrying them while i soloed carrying most of my ores, anyway rice cakes are now 152 gils for me so I went to norg and did the quest which was very easy and also did tonko ichi as well in one shot, my opinion is the ores are worth it and in bastock its easy to finish this if you have three hours or so to kill. 60-70k for a 350k-400k scrolls is more than worth the time. My dream of rdm/nin is closer to being reality :)
rdm=60 nin=11 so I have work to do

...oh and incase you were wondering yes this is all I did to unlock utsusemi quest and nothing else, this was not as hard as people made it out to be so have fun getting your scrolls

Okay, for all the people set on using rice balls as your indicator, it does work...However, the AMOUNT of quests you do for Tenshodo/Norg I believe ends up having a greater effect on your fame than doing the repeatable ore/necklace quests. My rice balls were priced at 161 after having done all of the following:

*Ninja flag
*Samurai flag
*Samurai AF1 (Yes, it counts as a Norg quest)
*About 120 necklaces I farmed.
*Zinc ore quest...maybe 4 times.
*Rusty Bucket quest. (Not positive this is even Norg fame.)
*Ninja scrolls for Rusty Subligar/Leggings

I thought 161 seemed rather high to have done all that. But last night I completed my SAM Af2 quest, and just to check, I talked to the guy, and got Utsusemi quest. I haven't checked if my rice balls dropped significantly from completing this quest, but all I'm trying to say is, the rice balls aren't end-all-be-all determinate of whether or not you have enough fame. Individual quests are worth more than repeating the necklace or the ore quests, and I think my story is proof of that.

Anyway, right now I'm holding TWO scrolls...lol...(friend of mine quit the game with this quest active, so before he left I signed on and did it. Haha.)

When it says "all attacks", it is a bit misleading. It means physical attacks only. In the same way that Blink creates shadows that melee will slowly disapate, Utsusemi: Ichi will absorb a certain number of melee attacks, then disappear. Hope this helps. If you want an all damage sheild, be a RDM or WHM (Stoneskin and Phalanx).

For all the ppl having problems activating norg quests, FYI: Norg fame is determined by an accumilation of all major cities fame, and the rice ball price is only for norg fame itself.
Therefore: if you have full windy fame or such, and turned in 500+ yagudo necklaces, you still might not have enough. BUT, if u have some fame in windy, some in sandy, some in bastok, and jueno, and did the yagudo necklace quest; you'll have no problem logging the nin scroll quests.
