Trade with other nations of Vana'diel flows through Port Bastok, where a large drawbridge separates houses, shops and the air travel agency from the adventurer residential area. Adventurers willing to visit the various homes here will be asked to perform numerous favors by residents of the Republic. Exiting town from this zone leads to the upper portion of North Gustaberg and, further north, the Palborough Mines.

Confused first time traveler???
# Jun 07 2007 at 10:04 AM Rating: Decent
Hi all, can anyone tell me how I obtain an air pass in Bastok. I am a noob lvl 14 blm. Do I need to get an airpass from an npc by completing missions?

Also, how do find additional maps for other ares such as the Dangruf Wadi and othe surrounding areas. I have bought some maps from npc's but they are not the ones I need in the Gustaberg region.

Thanks in advance for any help.

It is not the monsters. Windurst is defanately the easiest to get lost in, and of the starting cities San d'Oria is the most crowded (at least in my server). People hate it because it is their competition if they are from another country (although most talk of hating another country is just jokes) or were a newbie when they went in Bastok and they got lost and just have bad memories. Bastok is my favorite starting city (Kazham being by far my favorite city).

west ranfaure
--> la theine
--> Valkurm
--> Konschtat
--> Gustaberg
--> Bastok

Not directly unless you are willing to pay 150k Gil. To get the airpass you need to be level 30+ (i am level 30 myself so i dont know what level exactly). You get the airpass through missions. I think you get it for free when you hit rank 5 (the missons get pretty tough so its not exactly free, but costs you no money for the pass itself).

You can take the dangerous walk. To do this you go to:
Bastok > S Gusta > N Gusta > Konschtat Highlands > Valcrum dunes> La Theine Plateau > W Ronfuare > San d'Oria

the one that you get from rank5 is 500k.
the kazam pass is 150k.

small note:
if you switch countrys, you go back to rank 1, but keep AS passes.
if you work your back up to rank 5, you get some extra cash(30k?) instead of the pass.

Someone told me that the linkshells in bastok are sold in this zone, who sells them and for how much?
RE: linkshell
# Nov 23 2003 at 1:46 PM Rating: Good
You can buy the Linkshell in E-7 for about 8000 gil. The person who sells it is a Woman, and she is only open curtin Hours of the game.

anyone have any idea how much travel to and from windhurst woods would be? leaving from port bastok....
RE: travel
# Feb 26 2004 at 2:26 PM Rating: Default
It depends on how ur going there if ur using ur airpass it will take 800 gils cuz u go through Jeuno n then to Windurst n bak or if ur walking u want to head to selbina which is in Valkrum dunes n take the ship to Mhuara n then go to windy which costs about 200 for a full way.
if u get lost ask ppl on the way.

That's been changed since you posted this. I don't know why I'm commenting, but it seems that SE is making travel cheaper, while making Chocobo vendors steal your wallet while you're not looking.

Airship tickets are 200 gil now, though I know before they've been as much as 500 gil.
RE: travel
# Aug 08 2009 at 1:29 PM Rating: Decent
I just started. How do I obtain an airship ticket in San d'oria? I have two characters, one in bastok and one in san d'oria. The character in Bastok can purchase air tickets at the air port for 200 gil. When I went to the air port in San d'oria, I could not purchase any. Is there something I am over looking. Both characters are new and not Rank 5's.

Thanks for any help
