The Spare Cardian you jokingly taught a silly salutation to has grown up .... and is unable to forget that greeting. Now that he's a full-grown Cardian, you better find him and undo what you taught him ... otherwise, he'll remain a walking joke.
This quest cannot be flagged if you have Windurst Mission 9-2 open.

I wish I had read the anonymous post who wisely bulleted all the required steps of this quest before I set out to Buburimu... /slap <me>
I can verify that regional control has absolute diddly squat b/c I belong to "Lastok", at least how it is on Unicorn... -_- And I have seen the cardian there even when it's beastmen-controlled. I remember running to him for assistance when I was there as a low-lvl being aggrod by all the gobs there & he didn't help me. ; ; And no other NPCs are there, only when it is controlled by a region.
Bottom line, don't head out to Buburimu until you've set the greeting (been yelled at by NPC), & waited a real day or fame allows to actually start the quest. At least it was a chocobo, and I had warp to bring me back to windy. :D
As always, if you're on Unicorn and need my help with anything, just send a /tell! /smile :>
I can now confirm that you have to wait one real day - or until midnight Japan time to receive the quest after setting the wrong greeting to the spare cardian. Then I headed out to talk to Five of Spades in Buburimu. I was worried at first that I messed it up & was expecting more to his response. All he said was something to the effect of "Are you telling Five that his greeting is wrong, but that's the first greeting Five ever learned, and that can't be right!" But I returned to the taru & it was completed. Hope that helps! Happy questing :>

Kororo won't say crap to me but that she is newy around here and some other taru bs. Anyhow, I figure I will just wait some more, but if anybody knows what's up let me know, I really need the Scentless Armlets from the proceeding quest to fight avatars.
Thanks in Advance.

One note: you DO NOT have to talk to every cardian, only all the blanks in the Manustery (there are like ten, it's easy)...one will ask for a greeting (I think you need to talk to them all twice to get this, not sure), you choose one (I chose "WASSUP!!!" or something like that), talk to Kororo who yells at you not to teach the cardians anything, then you go away for a few hours real time, come back and talk to Kororo again.
I don't know about the cardian and region control, I haven't checked that out yet.

I have 31 completed quests when I got the quest, the fame guy in the tavern says "he hears people talking about me over dinner." Otherwise, the only things I did were teach the cardian a greeting, and then come back and check Kororo each day until he gave me the quest. Took about 3 RL days for me.
I've talked to everyone near Kororo, outside or inside the cardian workshop. The taru dude who gave me first cardian quest just says "This is the manustery blah blah blah" neither of them will give me another cardian quest.
Guess what? He gave me the quest.
So for everyone whose checking out how to get this quest. Talk to every cardian in windurst. Talk to Kororo. Teach the Spare cardian next to him any incorrect greeting. Then talk to him 1 more time. And DO NOT talk to him again for like 2-4 real life days while you go do something else with your char.
I started to do so, got through all those in Windurst Woods, then just got too peeved at all the running around. I went back to the Tarutaru NPC and he gave me the quest immediately.
SO I can't guarantee you WHICH cardians you must speak to, however, I can assure you that it is NOT "every cardian in town".
.Have the original cardian quest finished
.Talk to Koporu and then make sure you teach the caridan the imcorrect greeting, Koporu will yell at you.
.Come back a long time later and talk to Kopuru and he will blame you for mssing up his cardian
.You are sent to the outpost at the penninsula to fix this problem
.Report back to koporu.
Everything fter my second step is definitely correct. i did eachj of those as i have it written here.
Hope this helps!!
I talked to Kopuro-Popuro over and over, i have over 21 Windy quests done as well as ~7 repeaters done. He never said anything about Kororo (who btw is in the North Half of the Manustery, the part that Kopuro-Popuro is NOT in).
Kororo tells you, when you talk to him, that Spare One can learn a new greeting. So, you talk to spare One and teach him any phrase you like of the 3 you can pick, then if you talk to Kororo again he says that no one thinks he is ready to make Cardians.
I didn't have the quest at this point so i zoned out and back in and went to Kororo again. He still said that no one thinks he is ready to help make Cardians... still no quest.
I don't know if i have to wait a full day, or if Windy needs to control Buru Penninsula. As of right now on Midgardsormr the entire region of Kolshushu (Tahrongi/Bubu/Shakhrami/Mhaura,/Onzozo) are all under beastman control so that -might- be why the quest isn't initiating.
You can check conquest status under Region Info on the pulldown menu, just move the cursor around and highlight the squares to see who controls what.
By the way countries quests and fame rates are completely separated, I have somewhat medium fame in Windurst but somewhat low in Bastok.
Maybe you don't have to have control the place to complet the quest, but you do to start it? Since american release windurst in Midgard hasn't controlled the bumu. ANd it's not looking like it be any time soon, beastmen have like a bar of 80% there.
This game IS realistic during some quests. You have to give the Cardian time to run away from home. ^^
Our windurst in leviathan doesn't have control of the area but I was still able to do it. Good to combine with the overnight delivery quest because getting there is kinda tough at low levels.
Is this somethign that requires alot of faction with Windhurst?
Spoke to two NPCs next to Home Point on other side of building.
Then spoke to Apururu behind the counter in the building and then Kororo.
Then talk to spare One to teach the improper greeting.
Updated to add: I was able to finish the quest. The Five of Spades is unrepentant in his greeting (I too taught him WASSSSSSSSSUUUP? I think it's important for NPCs to keep up with pop culture :) ), but it did not matter that Windurst wasn't in control of the region.
