If you don't know already, I left FFXi back in Oct. I do not update this info anymore, although I'm sure a number of users post new info to the proper section's threads. If anyone out there has a journal or web hosting and would like to take over and maintain this info, please PM me.
No, not everything in this guide is accurate or up-to-date. Please post anything useful you know. Lastly, I have done my best to organize things consistantly and usefully. Please do your hardest to read a bit and search around for an answer before asking a question. No offense to anyone, but the same questions keep cropping up in these forum because people won't spend a few minutes looking for their answer. Some people just get tired of reading the same things over and over and over...
And now back to the previously scheduled fame guide.
In an attempt to make this information more manageable, I'm moving the meat of this thread into a number of smaller threads in my Journal. I've noticed that many people do not read very deeply into my thread and ask questions that have already been answered. Hopefully this will help make things easier for you guys to find the info you need. Please post any updates in the appropriate thread so that I can keep fame levels up to date. I will still check the main thread on occation, but I will pay more attention to the threads on my journal.
Alrighty, so I've gotten a little tired of the mass confusion between Rank and Fame, and all the misunderstanding about fame level requirements for the big quests (you know, Gobbiebag, RSE, Mog House, etc). The point of this thread will be to clear up this horrible fame thing. I will say now that I don't have all the answers, but I will try to keep this thread updated with new info. Anyone who has good information like what "level" fame you were when you got a quest, or exactly what the fame-teller in a certain town said to you, please post it.
Fame levels posted are the lowest I have found or that have been reported... who knows they might be lower. Tell me if you find one that's wrong!
This is a work in progress, please contribute (in the proper thread) and give corrections to make this info more useful!
Missions earn you Rank
Quests earn you Fame
How much fame you are given for quests varies, for one person it may take 8 bastok quests to earn Fame-2, another could be 11. Fame in Jeuno is (somehow) derived from fame in the other towns. Noone is exacly sure the direct relation, but doing a repeatable in Selbina will earn you fame in Sandy, Bastok, and Jeuno (and aparently Rabao, but I have not been there yet).
