Smokestacks from the metalworks rise above the streets of Bastok Markets, a lively hub of commerce in a city focused on industry and technology. Bastok Markets is a welcome sight for adventurers who have braved the trek from elsewhere in Vana'diel. Likewise, countless new adventurers have taken their first steps into battle from Bastok's front gates.

Bastok Markets is known for its goldsmithing guild, as well as its nearby auction house, music store and various other shops. This zone is also home to Brygid, perhaps the most fashionable resident of Vana'diel.

My 1st time in Bastok I went out to lvl and was disappointed with the mobs. You sneeze on them and they just faint dead away! LOL
Seriously, the only time I hit bastok is when I absolutely have to! I really grow weary of hearing the Galkans complain about the Humes, and vica versa.

San d'Orian and damned proud of it! ^^

San Doria licks balls and what level were you? Like 3? We have a nice area to level in for all levels from 1-7 in South Gustaberg. It's like level 5 anything in Ron you have to go to Ghelsba.

Bastok is the best. On qutze its either 1st or 3rd. It's weird all the Bastokans now are for the most part high level. When CoP came out and server migrations happened people we starting in Windy and Sandy. Bastok controls places like Upper Elshmo and normaly places in the Outlands. Where as Windy always has control of Qufim Island and Sandy has control of places around Konchstat and La Theine. Bastok is great simple as that best ADV. jobs ever in Bastok.

Bastokan ring on an Elvaan
# Oct 05 2004 at 6:48 PM Rating: Decent
I was wondering if Bastok were in 1st and you are an Elvaan, can you buy the Bastokan ring with conquest points from the gatehouse guards? If you cant, is there any other way?!
RE: Bastokan ring on an Elvaan
# Jan 07 2005 at 1:59 AM Rating: Decent
...So I can buy a San d'Orian ring (Except not in Bastok, lol), as I am a Hume? @.@ AWESOME.

you can buy just the same items as any bastokan, but you pay twice the Conquest Points if you buy from a nation that is not yours.

Bastok is the best place in Vanadiel by far. The missions are great and so are the quests. The AH always has a great supply and it has some great guilds. you cant go worng with Bastok!

Will Bastok be 1st?
# Aug 24 2004 at 1:09 PM Rating: Decent
Currently, on the Alexander server, Bastok is always second or third in regional control. I'm wondering if it is in first place on any other servers out there? I'm working very hard to rally everyone up to start taking over. Someday it'll happen. Bastok 4 life!!

The best =P IMO
# Aug 08 2004 at 3:52 PM Rating: Decent
In my opinion....
Bastok i sthe best city because the Auction house and the Mog house are so close to each other and the guilds arn't to bad either....
Post your opinions everyone! cause i know mine ^^
RE: The best =P IMO
# Jan 07 2005 at 1:58 AM Rating: Decent
San d'Oria is the best. The scenery isn't as wastelandish as Bastok, and it's easier to go around it.

In port San D'oria the mog house and AH are also very close.

Besides, each city has its own variety of guilds. San D'oria has woodworking and Smithing, which is very nice too.

and since Bastok is usually nr 2 or 3 in the conquest, being a San D'orian has more advantages :)

Being last has more advantages. :P Last place lets my Combat Caster's Boomerang +1 give me extra accuracy in more areas. Its not like I can't quickly travel to any city to use their shops. If Bastok actually controlled the areas I exped in, I'd be sad. I'd lose accuracy.

i love bastok! not because its my home nation but because it has a bit of everthing! it is very well laid so that its easy to get around unlike sandy and its so easy to memorize where everything is like amor ,magic,weapons and AH!

Why is it that everyone hates Bastok? (IE:"Bastok's ugly, Sandys the place to be!")

Fishing in Bastok
# May 23 2004 at 5:36 AM Rating: Decent
I was looking on some sites as to where I can fish in Bastok. I saw that they kept referring to an area as the Bastok Markets (Storage of Water) and was listed separately from the rest of the Bastok Markets. Can anyone help me out?
I'm a traveling San d'Orian and will be spending some time in Bastok, and I don't know the area that well.

if it says "Storage of Water" than fish off of the Glakan Bridge.
