5 charges ya?
# Dec 01 2008 at 1:08 AM Rating: Decent
Mine had 5 charges but is there any way to get it recharged other than droping it and redoing the quest, maybe any storage NPC's that would take this belt?

ok what people are saying, that what they say marks who you send is BS... If Militant Gale is the guard then you send Miledo, if Gentle Tiger is the guard send luto... ive been trying this quest for the last 2 hours and have been getting very pissed cause everyones instructions have been saying the same thing and i kept getting caught untill i figured this out. It does seem true however that when the lead guard is unaccompanied by the taru-taru then the clever thing you say is random so dont listen to people who say pick "waiting for a friend" because you have to take a qild guess 50% chance of getting it right.

Did this last night took me 2 hours,,, i messed up alot because of a frenzy SWEET belt tho
# Apr 29 2006 at 1:11 PM Rating: Default
OK, to make something clear: you must activate 8 switches (using some more than once). I got the belt on the 2nd try because on the first try I didn't understand that I would use the 3 actual switches more than once.

Other than that the other posts that tell what answers to give worked just fine for me. Also, the Taru friar mentioned swapping something out of the Lucky Charm, but I had it all they way through the end. FWIW I only had the Main Guard + Taru friar in 2 of my switch scenes so maybe at 3 or 4 he does in fact take it.

Lucky Charm
# Mar 29 2006 at 7:44 AM Rating: Default
I did this quest, and about the third tim I realized why the lucky charm wouldn't work after so long. If you watch carefully, that taru in the scenes after you use it starts talking about it. After the third use (Maybe 4, I forget) after the CS with him, in the chat log it says he swaps something in the charm or something of that nature. After that, I'm pretty sure the charm isn't that useful and you're probably better off saying something smart. Not sure though, I never had to pick the last option because I finished it before it was used all up and I realized this.
"use item"
# Mar 28 2006 at 6:44 AM Rating: Default
How do you "use " the item on the lead guard when you're in the CS? only gives me the normal options of luto, miledo, or say sometging witty.
# Mar 28 2006 at 6:49 AM Rating: Default
NVM, as I post this, I realize there are more options if ya scroll down.........hmmmm.
# Mar 26 2006 at 9:30 AM Rating: Default
Well, on my fourth attempt now. This quest is bs. The clues are wrong. For instance, one clue 3,4,5 are the same, and 3, 7, 8 are med. Should be 2,7,8....figured that out. But cant get around the lead guard.

Just another SE attempt to make the game a time sink. One more try, if I don't get it, Then I'm not attempting it again.

The Goddess Temple is on the ground floor of Bastok Metalworks, between the elevators. You'll see a narrow hall leading down. It's not so much a 'temple' but more of a small shrine.
Fame Req?
# Mar 22 2006 at 2:21 PM Rating: Default
Can someone specify the Level of Fame necessary to activate the quest?
RE: Fame Req?
# Apr 10 2006 at 9:59 AM Rating: Default
not sure, best thing to do is talk ao all people in bastok, open as many quests as you can complete 10-20 and you should have enought fame, or just fish rusty buckets, and trade them to the man next to bastok AH, for fame, sorry can't remember his name.
Lucky Charm?
# Mar 22 2006 at 11:13 AM Rating: Default
After reading this thread yesterday at work I came home and tried it. Got up to the 3rd deactivation and the second time I came up on the lead gaurdsman and used the "Lucky Charm"...I squeezed it tightly and nothing happend and the taru was caught. So I would guess the "Lucky Charm" is not 100%. Just a heads up...
don't choose the harp
# Mar 21 2006 at 4:35 PM Rating: Good
Did this & got the belt. Thanks for the great instructtions. My gf did it & chose the harp & got a prism powder as her reward. lol :-/

I just did this quest. It took about 10-15 min to complete. Perim's posts are correct and I followed them as best I could to get the belt. However, I would like to add that you will likely need to have the Chameleon Capers NPC quest completed to acquire this quest, because it involves Miledo(Taru from Chameleon Capers).

Edit: Quoted wrong name for walkthu poster ><

You definitely do not have to have Chameleon capers done for this quest. I did it without doing it.

you do not need to have Chameleon Capers open for this quest. I have done this quest for the past 5 Conquest Tallys and I only opened and completed Chameleon Capers last night.

As for the Fame requirement I dont know. My current Bastok fame is around lvl6 but I would expect lvl 3/4 fame to open this quest if not lvl1.

As for the location of the ??? it is in the Goddess temple which is the small room between the 2 elevators in Bastok Metalworks.

I did this last night, however the order that I got for the swiches was incorrect, The Galka in the eatery told me that third swich was both the largest and medium and no one told me what the second swich was, I eventually figured it out and there was a mistake where as I got the information for the third swich twice so one was the second swich. Got my belt no problem after that.

this is a form of easy money, skeleton keys are currently 18k each on Carbuncle so you can make an EASY 90k per conquest tally ^^

Quest: Bait and Switch
Location: Bastok Metal works
Starting NPC: Salim
Rewards: Key Ring Belt: “THF 20, Def: 2 Steal+1 Dex+1 '5/5 charges Skeleton Key'”, various smaller items.
Repeatable?: Yes, after Conquest Tally on Sundays

Information: Talk to Salim on the 2nd floor of the Bastok Metal Works, he will tell you to shoo away a friar in the Goddess Temple on 1st floor. Examine the ??? to get a cut-scene Luto will appear and reveal that the friar is a friend in disguise. Salim is taking bribes from a merchant and Luto (being a good upstanding citizen) wants to rob him for all he's got ^^. The ??? is a trap placed on the stash, during the CS you are asked to help, select yes. After that you will be offered a choice of items to help you with the guards that are places at the switches (guards appear in a CS by examining the switches)

Items you can select from Miledo:
Scope - detect plain clothes guards.
Bard's Harp - recall someone's past in song.
Lead Guardsmen ID - Identifies you as Lead Guardsman
Lucky Charm - Handy in a pinch.
Snares - place them and see what happens (haven’t used yet)
Pocket Watch - (haven’t used yet)
??? - You're not ready for this yet (the ??? isn’t a typo it's called that)(haven’t used yet) (theory: use the 6 other items to be able to use this)

NPCs that reveal switch order:
Helmut (outside Black Smiths guild)
Darha (Outside Black Smith's Guild)
Hungry Wolf (Eatery)
Folzen (gives a little info, Outside Black Smith's Guild)
The switch order changes each time you do the quest and the number of switches differs with the item chosen. The switches will not reset if you get caught but they will reset if you flick the wrong switch, causing you to start the sequence again.
The switches are located at:
Medium - near the entrance zone to the Metal works
Small - Inside the Cermet Refinery, under some shelves
Large - By the Black Smith's Guild near “Dark Clouds”

Some clues given are "Hardest to find: Small" and "Hardest to activate: Large" Also should you get caught (after 3rd capture you have to start over by talking to Salim) to free the caught member of the group talk Ferghus in the Eatery. Then talk to the boy Galka called Folzen, he will say he found the cell key but Salim scares him... the member not captured will automatically release the caught member.
If the Key Ring Belt is what you’re after then choose the lucky charm to receive it. Choosing the Lucky Charm will also cause the Lead Guardsman to appear. Using the Lucky Charm on the Lead Guardsman will cause him to leave.

If you don’t want to solve the problem yourself then send Luto or Miledo to do the job. If the guard is bored and wants to go for “a drink or two…or three” then send Miledo to get rid of the guard.

If the guard is saying he wants to catch a thief send Luto to lure him away.

this item is not rechargeable if you run out of carges then repeat the quest (repeatable after conquest tally on Sunday)

I'm just glad that they have it for use only as a thf lol. I would hate to see someone trying to use their belt as another job only to find out that they have to have thf as main. Also, to help success rate (this is rumored) INT helps out alot. Hence the reason why THF af add INT. Also if your thinking of taking thf to at least 60 to the af gear save this belt. You can solo your coffers as a thf/whm or /rdm and just pick them. Thats what I did, but I just used regular thf tools but I hear Skeleton Keys have a little bit of a better success rate.

I just got it and, what in the world does a "Skeleton Key" do
RE: uh
# Mar 19 2006 at 10:56 AM Rating: Good
A skeleton key is used to open chests/coffers instead of getting the actual key for it. Sometimes it will be a trap though, so be prepared whenever you use it.
