Rice Bals {{No thanks.}}
# Jul 01 2009 at 5:20 AM Rating: Decent
Though rice balls are a good indicator that can save time running bak and forth from Norg, they suck! I had mine at 155gil, went to Norg, couldn't get quest, so I talked to the guy who can indicate the rank from what he tells you, and I was 2 ranks away. So.....
Rice Bals {{No thanks.}}

Just to clear a few things up.

It says the quest is a min level 1 this is wrong. SE must have changed this to keep RMT from doing this quest on level 1 characters.

I took a mule to level 30 using my anniversary ring just to do this quest.

First of all I had max fame in windy and no fame anywhere else on this mule.

I traded exactly 200 yag necklaces then headed to norg. After doing the rusty armor quests I was able to flag this.

I then changed to a level 1 job and followed the walk through to get to the room with the ???.

What I needed was 7 silent oils to get there and back.

When I returned I tried to finish the quest but all I got was some gibberish from the NPC. After trying 4 times I finally figured it out.

I changed back to the level 30 job and was able to finish the quest.

To sum it up you HAVE to be on something other then a level 1 job to flag this and to finish the quest. I can't say what level is needed but a level 30 can do it now.

Hope this helps
got it

yag necklaces
# Jul 24 2007 at 12:48 AM Rating: Decent
just to clarify.

only quests i had done for norg were SAM flag quest and NIN flag quest.

traded exactly 200 necklaces to the npc and rice balls were at 154.

i hadn't done any zinc ore quests or anything.

hope this clears it up

Nanaa Mihgo is who I believe you trade the Yagudo Necklaces to. POS <J - 3>
# May 30 2007 at 9:48 AM Rating: Decent
it took me 2 Norg quests and aproximately 120 yag necklaces to go from Fame 3 to Fame 4. that's by far the biggest part.

Good luck.. and I hope you have patience, you'll need it.

After the anti-RMT changes last year the 'read me' said there is now a level requirement on this and many other scroll quests which were being exploited by RMT.

What is that level for this one now?

after obtaining 203 yag necklaces i went to norg and tried to get quest and was not able to. i started out will no fame in norg. i checked my fame after the 203 and told me if i keep up the good work people will start recognized me. well after i picked up what pride i had leaft i went back and obtained 24 more yag necklaces and turned them in. i went back to norg and was able to complete the quest. so with 227 necklace and started with 0 fame i was able to get quest. now i am a proud owner of Utsusemi Ichi.
fame and what i did
# May 03 2007 at 2:32 AM Rating: Decent
During inflation time I decided to get fame for my mule to sell the scrolls for gil but I've gotten lazy. Well, I decided to do them now, turned in zinc ores(forgot how many) and 12 yagudo necklaces only. Did the quest in sandy where you give 3 packages to the npcs. Checked the price of riceballs, and it was 161 gil. I hoped to have enough fame and headed to norg. I did the rusty leggings + subligar + turned in 4 eastern potteries + tonko:ichi quest. That unlocked Utsusemi ichi and all the other level 4 fame quest.
# Apr 23 2007 at 4:03 AM Rating: Decent
I turned in exactly 200 Yagudo Necklaces. I have kept track of them all. Rice balls were at 156. I went to Norg (for the first time ever) and completed, lvl 20 Leviathan fight, Tonko: Ichi, and Utsuemi: Ichi. Guarenteed that you can get this by turning in 200 necklaces. Never tested any of the other quests, but I will this week.
# Jan 22 2007 at 9:24 AM Rating: Decent
the rice balls where 153 when i done coz when they where 155 it wouldnt let me and i traded in 140or150 necklaces, 3 NIN scrolls and i got the quest some how =)

"Well if it isn' [Name]. Hear yer name lots 'round these parts lately. Why, I remembers when you was nothin' but a measly insect. Thanks t'me advice, you're doin' quite well here in Norg. "

This is for lvl 4 fame, acording to online.

Yet i cant get jubaku, utsu or tonko.

My rice ballw as at 153

I really dont get this any ideas.?

whats all this about rice balls? i have no idea what it has to do with this
Fame Check
# Jan 09 2007 at 3:37 PM Rating: Decent
A less accurate way, but easier than a trip to Norg is to check the price of rice balls from the Tenshindo merchant NPC in Jeuno.
200 neckies
# Nov 09 2006 at 9:34 PM Rating: Decent
i farmed 200 exactly and got quest so it definetly different for everyone, probably depends on the price of rice balls in neptunes squire and your luck
server:asura hope this helps

ok yea whats more worth your time to get this scroll? trading in like 200-400 necklaces (whatever the number really is), or just doing all the regular quests insted of doing the same one over and over again to make you not only get the scroll..but make yourself go completly insane. i need to know what works better.

What is the nessarcary price for rice. Ive spent a week doing Norg quests finished a smuggle run noticed rice was 160 which i have read and heard servearal times so i was delighted. I get to norg and find im still fame 3. So a friend lends me some money to buy some rusty subligear (only 1 in norg i didnt do) i did it and was still fame 3. Im on the point of checking PC outta window. I needed Utsuemi for WAR/NIN for a promy in 2 days and a static 2moz can some1 plz tell me what the rice price is.

Grrr. >< why do things always happen to me ><
What I did
# Aug 29 2006 at 8:15 AM Rating: Decent
I found getting Norg fame to be incredibly easy. Zinc Ore was much faster than Yagudo necklaces (I hate having to run all the way to Mithra Grove in windy to trade necklaces), and having some gil to spare is always a good thing. I didn't spend hours trying to get this, I just did little bits at a time over a few days. Could have done it all in one hit but it would have been quite boring. When I started my rice balls were 169, got them down to 158, although supposedly you only need 160 to get this quest. Anyway, just got the quest started and off to do it with my 62 whm.
# Aug 15 2006 at 6:07 PM Rating: Decent
Ok I just got done doing this quest last night and just so everyone will know I started with absolutely no Norg fame. I traded exactly 231 yagudo bead necklaces. (I know 231 is an odd #) I went to Norg and got the Utsusemi quest unlocked. So if you just want it for that one quest no need to trade 400. But I'm sure 400 will get you higher fame and be worth it in the long run. Hope this helps ^^
what a retard

MrBuff...you are a freakin ******...

I love seeing people get so pissed off because they cant do something that other people/players can do. Just because it takes YOU 400 Yag Necks, doesn't mean everyone is full of BS. I've turned in maybe 90 or 100 necklaces by now and the price of the rice balls is at 160. I'm not saying that just because I said it, it makes it true. Almost everyone who is doing the Yag Necklaces to get Norg fame would/should agree with me that this information is correct.

Norg Fame
# Aug 07 2006 at 6:12 AM Rating: Decent
I want to make it VERY clear that it takes FAR more than 200 necklaces to achieve enough norg fame for Utsusemei: Ichi. I farmed them over a year ago, and it took WELL over 400, now, I'm helping my gf farm them and am keeping an EXACT track of them, and the price of rice balls at neptunes spire to see where it stands. As of right now, she has turned in EXACTLY 224, and rice balls are STILL 161gil each! thats WAY off from the goal still, so this will EASILY take more than 400 necklaces. I dont know if something has been changed on the game for calculating fame for norg, but if it has, it has been in effect for a very logn time, since I came up with the same numbers over a year ago. Anyway, I want to say, those of you who say 200 ARE COMPLETELY FULL OF BS, and are going off of hear-say! Go help a friend, and keep count, and you will see EXACTLY what I'm talking about. As for how to attain this RIDICULOUSLY long goal, I suggest havign your inv maxed out (60 slots) and go with as much pace open as possible, bring a friend, and BOTH sub thf for TRH, and you will accomplish the goal much sooner, but I still say it is RIDICULOUS to get well over 400 of these turned in JUST to OPEN UP the quest. I know some things in a game like this SHOULD be challenging, but THIS IS A GAME, and it's number one priority is to be FUN for the players!!! And hunting 400+ necklaces is NOT fun, it's mindless, boring, and repetitive, and SE should be ashamed of themselves to make building norg fame such a sickening chore!
Norg Fame

Hey MrBuff

Just a few things, Have you done the quests to unlock SAM and NIN? have you done any other quests in norg at all?

I've done the quest recently and it only took me <250 necklaces to get the price of the rice ball's down.
But then again, I've unlocked SAM and NIN already, and done my SAM AF before starting the quest for utsusemi: ichi.

It terms of square enix making the game frustrating by making you farm yag necklaces, the repetitive quests in this game give you close to no extra fame, which is y you need to do them so many times.
The thing is, SE make them that way because they want you to do the real quests, i.e. the challenging ones in norg in order to get fame, not take the cheap and easy way out by trading little items in excessively. That said, i still traded my necklaces in and got my fame ^^

If you dont like the trading necklaces thing, try to do the norg quests if ure up for the challenge. It'll be a lot more fun and its wat SE intended ^^

no lex I think SEs plan is to have people sit on their asses for 24 hours a day to grow fat because they have no life and want to do things the hard way not the simple done way. That is extremely awesome you want to do things the hard way but there are people in the world that have jobs, lives, family that don't have time to sit on their asses and gain weight playing a game that takes HOURS to get **** done. Oh wait maybe you do not have one and thats why you love 20 hour quests. This quest by the way is pretty easy but find the easy way out there are little cheats in this quest that can help you make it faster. Or be like lex and do the long way and gain 400 pounds from eating fatty foods sitting on your *** for many hours. The end
