For the record, two handings-in of Zinc Ore appear to roughly equal five handings-in of Yagudo Necklaces (compiled data from those who claim that 100 Zinc Ores gets them Leviathan Prime fight, and others who reckon that about 250 Yagudo Necklaces does the trick. And I know I said 240 earlier, but that looks like the low end of the scale.)

For the mini-fight, about 100 or so. For the full uncapped fight, anywhere above 240 should suffice.

I traded Talib 84 zinc ores, which was enough to get quests in Norg. Rice ball price showed 155. I guess I should mention that I had bastok fame 4, if that matters !?!
I farmed about 4 ores, mined about 10, and the rest took all of my 300k to buy at various AH's, so you better be rich if you want Norg fame or a patient farmer/miner. But please don't buy Gil, you are making the game bad for all honest players.
Good luck

I'm trying to finish my collection of maps that are sold by NPC's, and i know the map of norg is given when you start the ZM's, my question is, is there any other NPC that sells maps for other places here in norg?

I just newly joined the Tenshodo and I checked my riceball price straight away. They cost 166 gil each (but I assume it's 166.5 because they don't round prices up.
If the riceball price is 166.5 and I need it to be 155.0 (or 154.5 to be safe) then based on intervals I need to do this quest 23-24 times which would end up being 92-96 zinc ores.



Just something I decided to share..

this is an odd question and one that as far as I could tell has not been asked. The other night when I was in Norg (only my 3rd trip there) I noticed there is a chocobo renter in norg. This struck me as a lil odd considering birds won't enter SSG so I was wondering when you rent a bird in norg where do you get spit out??. My guess would be you start from the waterfall tunnel but I didn't wanna waste the gil just to find out lol

Your guess is correct, Telal. If you talk to the NPC that gives you the choco he'll tell you about a tunnel that leads out to Yuhtunga Jungle that the choco goes through. Never see the tunnel, though. Once your rent a choco it automaticcaly starts in Yuhtunga.

To be safe, i gave 150 yagudo necklaces to guy in windy and then gave abwt 50 zinc ores to guy in bastok to get riceball price down to 152g....i heard the giving 4 zincs to the guy lowers the price of riceballs by 0.5g - this is proven.
riceball prices
# Dec 12 2004 at 6:47 PM Rating: Decent
well i read this form and nowhere did somone ask/answer this question.

What is the price for rice balls from the girl in lower jeuno to be able to do the utsumi(sp?) quest?

i thought it would be VARRY helpful to all the people whos going to be a nin, rather then count how maney beads/zink ores u turn in

well im 60% shure the price is 155.....but that oter 40% is still pritty commanding.

Thank You. ^_^

I got the quest for Utsusemi:Ichi when rice balls were 155.

However, I've heard that some people still can't get it at 155, so there must be gradations of Norg fame that we can't completely see in the rice ball price. So if you get it down to 154 you should be in the clear, but it would be worth the trip to Norg to check if you've got it down to 155.
RE: riceball prices
# Dec 18 2004 at 4:35 PM Rating: Decent
See my probelm was i went to norg when my price was 156 and couldn't get it so i spent 12k doin the Zinc ore quest then got every quest. My price went down below 155 then and i got it, so in my experience i'd wait to 154 or so to go so you dont get mad like i did!

the boat is the pirate ship that sometimes attacks the ferry. A few of the npcs in Norg talk about using a special summoning technique to spawn the undead that attacks the ferry.

Its not that hard to get out of the jungle.... all you do is follow your compass north, it'll turn east or west at times, but when it does head in the north direction again. i know 2 different ways out of there! and if you spent that long to where your choco died!?!?! let me think... my choco takes me from Bastok to East Sarau. if your wondering the jungle that long u need to learn to read a compass.

Norg Fame is linked to 1) the Tenshodo Corporation (one base is in Port Bastok the other in Lower Jeuno) 2) the Brugaire Consortium (in Port Sandoria, theres an NPC by the name of Fontoumant and also another NPC named Portaure but u need rank 5 for airship pass when ur doing quest for Portaure) 3) Nanaa Mihgo (in Windhurt Woods)

Norg fame is linked to Tenshodofame. You can do these various quests in various cities, and they will give you tenshodo fame. There is a Tenshodo Base in Bastok that will give you a quest or two. There is one or two in Windurst, also. I'm not entirely sure on San d'Oria.

(Norg) fame is its own thing. It's not linked to any city, or Other Areas, or Outlands. (Norg) fame is (Norg) fame.

(Hmmm.) Not having to go through (Sea Serpent Grotto), eh? Sounds like a good deal to me =). I've heard that in Chains of Promathia, there will be a Ferry from (Mhaura) to (Norg), that will be great for my Ninja subjob.

Odds are they'd put it from the Tenshodo H.Q. to Norg. You've probably seen the NPC to the right of the merchants (Coming into the HQ) that blocks off a ramp where they recieve their shipments.

so far all that's known about the ship is it leaves Norg at the same time the Ferry from mhaura to selbina leaves. it's supposedly the pirates ship which attacks the ferry since norg is the pirates hideout. thats the only logical explanation i can give

Go to the Tenshodo building in Lower Jeuno, it's between mog house and AH. Talk to the girl at the desk, and select the secret menu option.

She should send you with a form to the Bastok branch (in Port Bastok.)
You can also buy a Tenshodo Invite on AH, I guess.

Anyway, to boost Tenshodo/Norg fame, go the Bastok branch, and bring lots of zinc ore. LOTS of zinc ore.... When the other guy there give you the Silence of the Rams quest, you know you are doing it right.
Moogles and such
# Jun 23 2004 at 11:37 AM Rating: Decent
Is there a Moogle in Norg that can change your job for you? I'm trying to get Leviathin for my summoner but obviously can't get to Norg at level 20. I was thinking that I would use my 30 RDM and use sneak+deodorize+invis to get there. But if there's no moogle there to change my job back to summoner to get Leviathin then I'm basically screwed for now.
RE: Moogles and such
# Jul 02 2004 at 3:50 AM Rating: Excellent
Yes, there are 3 Nomad Moogles stationed at G-7 within Norg. Also, you only need Sneak when traveling through this little portion of Sea Serpent Grotto on your way to Norg.

And in case anyone needs some directions...

Ride a Chocobo from Kazham down to the Grotto's entrance (F-11 Yuhtunga Jungle behind a small waterfall in the Hidden Valley) enter (you will be at M-3), cast Sneak or use Silent Oil, then follow the right-hand wall to H-6. There is a secret "door" there (on the right-hand side) it is easy to miss because it looks exactly like the rest of the wall, enter and head North to Norg (Norg's entrance is at F-3).

Here is a nice map of Sea Serpent Grotto...


Good Luck all ^_^

The easiest way I found to raise fame was to run yagudo necklaces to windurst over and over and over again. There are other ways to do it but this was good farming too. ^^
If you need fame for the Utsusemi quest you can check the price of rice balls in the tenshodo in Lower Jeuno (next to AH)... The price was 153 when I went to Norg and got the quest.
Happy farming! :P

# May 17 2004 at 2:29 PM Rating: Decent
Everyone has rpobally noticed this but,
The ship that leaves Norg looks like the pirate ship that attacks the ferry between selbina and mhaura.That would make sense since Norg is a pirate hideout....hmm..... ^^

This map is not included with the Sea Serpent Grotto map that you get from the chest. Instead, you get this map at the completion of the first of the Zilart missions, where you are instructed to go to Norg.
