i was level 36 when I was only helping some friends kill the 20 copper quadavs.. well we had a lot of higher level players and someone was killing one of the quadav's from the upper level. I engaged.. was behind it and hit steal expecting if i got anything, it would have been a silver beastcoin.

Instead I got the quadav stew on my first try. I didn't even know what it was at the time. I'm just glad I don't have to keep trying to steal and zoning over and over.
Nice dagger ^^

Sorry but I had to post this, I had read that at level 40 I could start the THF AF1, so I decided to read up on it.Did not sound like it was to difficult so I had a few hours to kill last night and did it. I was on my way to Sandy to OP to Valkurm and talk the to Galka, but then I remembered that he was gonna ask fo rthe damn stew, might as well get that first, so I warped off the airship back to jeuno and switched to THF40/NIN20, grabbed a bird and headed to Beaudeu. When I got there I pulled one with a bloody bolt, Missed, it cast Firega on me taking out my shadows, tried sleep bolts, missed every single shot I tried, lol my cross bow is like 30 so Not worth the 60K I dropped on 3 sets of bloody and sleep bolts, ( I was planning on being there a while and wanted to be prepared) So after about 3 failed attempts, on the forth attempt, it linked about 4 other quadaves, then is Binded me >.<. Luckely it did ot stick and wore before the gang could get a hit in. I slapped flee and began to hall *** to the zone, but why waste a good chance to Jack this Zircon Quadav I think it was, so I ran straight into the Group of Quadavs, (MAn my Evasion kicks *** ^^) ran upto the Zircon and hit Steal, then I saw the beautiful text, Duel obtains Quadav Strew. so I am 1/4. I tried the {Flee} then running upto them as they were csating but I had no success, maybe cause I did not get straight behind them. I STOLE IT WHILE FACE TO FACE BTW ^^ Yessser I am to lucky

/ra <t>
>>>>>> Run like hell up to it Use steal then run back to the zone.

My simple message to you all is this "Do not engage when you try to steal the stew!"

I tried for a long time to get this both solo and with a friend. After about 10 or more unsuccessful steal attempts I was ++ frustrated. For some reason I tried to steal one time but had not actually engaged in the fight.

Fastforward 1 year. I had quit and restarted from scratch. Walk into bedeaux solo as 40 thf. Ask a friend for help to occupy this thing while I steal from it without engaging it. While waiting for him to show up I decide to pull one with ranged attack which, as you know, does not engaged the mob. I hit him with a bolt then a bloody bolt to get some HP back, then a sleep bolt - still not 'engaged' in the battle. While he is sleeping I steal from him ... 1/1 on this character!

Good Luck!

Stew from Zircon Quadav

Just got mine.

Went two trips, as PLD64/THF32. First time I went 0/6 trying different ways like front, back, engaged, disengaged, etc.

Second trip I went 1/5.

Got it from a Silver Quadav, disengaged, from behind. However, I think it's just luck of the draw. Just keep at it.

This puts my AGI and DEX at +21 each, so I'm happy.

dagger whack crack attack!

This knife... is the best knife a thf can have until about lvl 50-55
Intelligence Plays a role.

I went to Bedeaux as lvl 75blm/thf and stole the stew on the first try from a zircon quadav. When you go to steal the stew be sure to equip INT gear or go as a job with and already high INT rating.
the stew in 2 tries

grr... I hate you all. Currently 0/25+ that's including sleeping them and stealing from behind. Been here for over 2 hours /cry


thanks haniblecter read your post after posting mine, walked in, seen a Bronze in range on the ledge, walked over, used steal and got it on the first attempt.

your probably better off waiting until one walks onto the metal steps

I must be crazy lucky. Was in Beaduex farming Quadav Helms, killing oozes, and occassionally killing the few easy prey Quadavs as a 50 WAR/THF. Stole when one of these were at a sliver of life (from the front) and got the stew.

I might just keep this in the event I do take THF up to 40 (currently at 26).

Got the stew by accident, strangely. I was doing Bastok mission 3-1 with the 20 coppers and a garnet and zircon linked from the top tier. I died but vowed revenge. Went to kill the zircon after hiking back and decided to steal a coin from him, turned out to be the stew. Was kinda disappointed at first but after hearing how hard this supposedly is, I'm relieved. ^^

Pretty much same story here, was hunting a NM in the area and happened to try to steal a silver beastcoin, got a stew. A friend I was with at the time promptly informed me what it was for. I was happy :)

Quick note to those asking about how worthwhile this knife is:
1. you need your af knife before you can do any af quests or get coffers (though you prolly already knew that)
2. it's not the damage on this knife that's the most important, but the dex and agi +, higher dex = better sa damage, and higher ta = better sa damage.
The dex and agi are the much higher benefit off this item, so use a damage knife (assuming you're thf/nin) in your main and af dagger in off hand to get bonus.
By the way, I suggest looking at the thief job forum about the guids to sa and ta and how dex and agi affect both, it's got some good info for theifs that either have it or dont.
