The Toraimarai Canal is a complex labyrinth found in the depths of the Horutoto Ruins. The canals extend beneath the Federation of Windurst similar to a vast sewer system. The creatures in this canal are very powerful compared to the other areas near Windurst. Early in the labyrinth, monsters include crabs, bats and leeches. Later on, adventurers face skeletons, scorpions and other deadly monsters.

The Canal

Getting access to this place was more annoying than getting access to sky. Although some of the scenery is pretty cool. Was hoping to do some DRG or BST exping down here someday. :)
Until we meet again... stay gold. *bang*

Did this quest as a level 56 BST with only rank 3. Leveled my fame some and did all the the Rhinostery quests. I did not need to do the "Say it with Flowers Quest". I did go to the NPC though first, just never completed it.

Once I got the blue ribbon, they kept giving me the Water quest over again. I did it a 2nd time and talked to NPC, zone then received a cutscene and the certificate.

All of this was a major pain and seemed to take forever. Lots of running around.
Don't need Rank 6
# Dec 30 2005 at 6:41 AM Rating: Decent
I just want to point out that Rank 6 is definitely NOT needed to get this quest. I just it and I'm still Rank 5. These quests must be purely fame related. When I read the comment about needing Rank 6 I was dismayed... as I wanted access to the canal to level my 60 BST. Good job I went ahead and tried for the quest anyway.

H-3 of Wind Walls, Behind (and below) the House of the Hero. You'll need to stay to the south side of the main path to go down UNDER the bridge and passed the Chip selling Goblin.

Just to make it alittle easier, I already did the research for you. Here's step by step the quests required on how to get entrance to the canal.

Receiving Windurst Walls Access to Toraimarai Canal
Food for Thought
Realm: Windurst Max Level: 75
Start Area: Windurst Waters Grants Gil: 1000

Kerutoto (Rhinostery, Windurst Waters) asks you to buy food for himself and two busy researchers (Ohbiru-Dohbiru & Kenapa-Keppa). Make sure actually talk to the other two to get their orders:
· Kerutoto needs a Grilled Hare. This is made via trade skills or bought at the Culinarian Guild. Reward = 440 Gil.
· Kenapa-Keppa needs a Boiled Egg. You can buy this from the restaurant in Windurst Waters. reward = 120 Gil, or make it yourself: Fire Crystal + Bird Egg + Distilled Water

Prerequisates: · Food for Thought· Say It With Flowers Items Granted: · Power Gi
Last Updated: Fri Dec 19 15:47:36 2003
Talk to Kenapa-Keppa over and over until he starts to repeate himself. He will eventualy give you this quest. Go to Mhaura and look for Kotan-Puritan. She appears at night near the ticket booth. She will give you some luggage to take back. You then have to make it back to Windurst Waters before dawn. This is hard to do without having a way to teleport. Talk to Kenapa again for your reward.
Water Way to Go
Realm: Windurst Min Level: 1
Start Area: Windurst Waters Max Level: 75
Start NPC: Ohbiru-Dohbiru (J - 9) Grants Gil: 900
Type: General Rating: 3.33
Max Party: Last Updated: Fri Dec 19 15:47:36 2003
Related Areas: · Giddeus
Ohbiru-Dohbiru is in the Rhinostary. He asks you to go to Giddeus and get him some water from the spring there. Take the container he gives you to Giddeus to either of the springs (E-12 and K-12) and fill it up and bring it back for your reward.
Blue Ribbon Blues
Realm: Windurst Max Level: 75
Start Area: Windurst Woods Grants Gil: 3600
Start NPC: Roberta (I - 13) Rating: 2.20
Type: General Items Required: · Purple Ribbon
Related Areas: · Eldieme Necropolis Title Obtained: Ghostie Buster
Related Mobs: · Kerutoto (J - 8) · Lich C Magnus Items Granted: · Blue Ribbon
Min Level: 1 Last Updated: Thu Aug 12 12:02:57 2004
To get this quest you have to have completed the Rhinostery quests mentioned in one of the posts below. You talk to Roberta in Nchaa's Good Goods store and she'll give you the questand the Purple Ribbon. After that you take the ribbon to Kerutoto in the Rhinostery in Windurst Waters. He gives you 3600 gil for it and tells you he will investigate it. After a short time (I don't know how long exactly after I gave it to him I went and did some other things for a while, but it should only be a few hours at the most, probably less) he will finish his investigation. Anyway, he then gives you the purple ribbon back and once you have it you can then trade it to the Hume Bones in The Eldeime Necropolis. This will spawn the Lich C Magnus. He's pretty easy, I've seen RDM's solo him around 60 (as long as you can stun or silence him when he casts AM). I had 3 people around 60 when I did it and he went down pretty easily. After he's dead click on the bones and you will receive a blue ribbon. After that go back to Kerutoto to complete the quest
Toraimarai Turmoil
Realm: Windurst Max Level: 75
Start Area: Windurst Waters Grants Gil: 4500
Start NPC: Ohbiru-Dohbiru (J - 9) Rating: 2.25
Type: General Items Required: · Starmite Shell
Related Areas: · Toraimarai Canal Items Granted: · Rhinostery Certificate
Min Level: 1 Last Updated: Thu Sep 2 19:00:29 2004
Ohbiru-Dohbiru needs some starmite shells. These can be obtained by killing starmites in the Toraimarai Canal. Ohbiru-Dohbiru also tells you that you will receive 4,500 gil for every 3 starmite shells that you bring him as a reward.

What I discovered is you don't need to complete the last quest (Toraimarai Turmoil), just start it to gain access to the Toraimarai area.

IBHalliwell - Looking forward to doing all these quests.

You can get this quest as a Rank 5

These are precursor quests to Toraimoi Turmoil:

Food for Thought
Overnight Delivery
Water Way to Go
Blue Ribbon Blues

If the quest "Say it With Flowers" is either open in your quest log or you did not talk to all Rhinostery personnel when you cleared it, you will have to finish it before you are given "Blue Ribbon Blues". This may mean redoing entire quest.

I know

For all you trying to figure it out, i just did

If ohbiru keeps giving you the water way to go quest after blue ribbon blues, you need to get rank 6

So prerequisites to Toramairai Turmoil quest are pass Blue Ribbon Blues and be rank 6

... i passed blue ribbon blues as rank5 and couldn't get quest so there u go
One way there...

After completing the "Blue Ribbon Blues" quest I talked to Ohbiru-Dohbiru again and got the Rhinostery Certificate to enter the Canal from Windhurst Walls

The Entrance to the Canal is located to the right of the House of the Hero in Windhurst Walls. There is a small path leading to the right of the house, this is where you need to go.

You have to do some quests before hand for the rhinostry (I think) in windurst waters SOUTH before you get the key item needed to enter this gate. Also for the quest before hand you have to kill lich c magnus in the necro...

there are liches at least right in front of the door to Full Moon Fountain. Whether or not they drop papyrus though, I can't say. I heard they don't.

I got a quest that gave me a key item allowing access through the cardian-guarded door in windhurst walls.
To get that quest you must finish the Blue Ribbon Blues quest (by Kerutoto?) and then talk to Ohbiru-dubiro (sp?) in Windhurst Waters

# Jan 14 2004 at 6:44 PM Rating: Default
There is also a door guarded by a Cardian that I think goes to the canal in Windurst Walls. You have to walk around one of the islands, under a bridge and whatnot to get to it. It's locked, but I bet there is some way into it (or out? might be exit-only).
to find it...
# Jan 14 2004 at 5:03 PM Rating: Default
To get to the canal, you must first go past the three mage door (complete windy m8 adn give the girl a rollanberry to get the key or you always need all three mages). Past that door is an entrance. unless you're level 45+ though, you'll get smacked. The bats you see when you enter aggro and aren't very nice. Jet Stream. ><

To get the map, you have to complete 4 or 5 of rycharde's quests (teh cook) and he'll give it to you.

Yes, but you weren't *in* the Toraimai Canal, you were still in the ruins. The bats there are lvl 44+, and believe me, you were not soloing those.

On the lower Windurst Walls map between the Magic Reserve and the 'posh neighborhood', there is a label for Toraimarai Gate. I have been unable to find where this gate is. I wonder if it is the building to the left of the Federal Maic Reserve because I cannot open the door (You may need to complete a quest in order to get to Toraimarai?).

The Magic Reserve is in Windurst _Waters_ south, not Walls... Walls is only one map.

I think it's an area in the cave complex under the Horutoto ruins.
