Speak with Michea in the Bastok Market at F-10, She will ask you to create a copper ingot for her.

You can either buy one at the Auction House or synthesize one yourself using a fire crystal (dropped off creatures outside in Gustaberg and 4 copper ores).

The latter part takes patience and practice so if you do not have that I suggest just buying one from the Auction House.

Return the Copper Ingot to her and receive your reward of 180 Gil.

Well i have fame 4 in basty but i think that a better way to build up fame is by doing selbina quest, talking about other thing how can you get that signature image that piko and other char have?
mythril ignot

I'm doing some quick quests to build fame in my mules so I can sell some of the scrolls I can get, like Warp in Bastok. I had some ingots so I decided to trade them to her. But there is a key to this.

In between trades, you MUST ZONE before you recieve the quest again.

That's all. Just zone into Gustaberg then come back and do it again. Similar to the sardine quest in Windy. Otherwise, it builds fame fairly fast. :)

Repeat for fame, gil

You can repeat this quest (and the silver ingot quest) at random. Just go talk to her, and if she gives you the quest, give her a copper ingot. 180 gil is a very slight loss if you buy the copper at the goldsmith (9-18 gil per chunk). If she wants your silver, that's even better; silver sells for 1900 or so at AH (Titan) but she'll buy them for 2200. And it's fame.

So it's not as repeatable as Zeruhn Soot or some of the others, but it doesn't cost as much either, especially if you are in the goldsmith guild.

Because your craft skills aren't perfect. Till you lvl them up high enough, you fail quite a bit.

And i believe no matter how high you are there is always a slight chance of failure.
how do i synthesize?
# Dec 05 2003 at 6:54 PM Rating: Default
After i've got 4 copper and 1cristal, then tried to synthesize, but it didn't work. why is that?
to synthesize, do i have to be a member of guild?
RE: how do i synthesize?
# Mar 16 2006 at 9:07 PM Rating: Decent
It will do nothing if:

You are using the wrong crystal or
You are not a member of the Goldsmithing Guild.

If you are synthing and it fails, then that's normal. But since it's a LVL 3 synth and you haven't done Goldsmithing, then you shouldn't see too many breakages.
Silver Ingot

I returned to here a while after I finished this quest, and she gave me another quest. This time she wants a Silver Ingot. I have not returned one too her yet. Does anyone know what she gives you?

Michea will give upgraded quests occasionally, asking for, instead of a Copper Ingot, a Silver Ingot or Mythril Ingot.

The reward scales up appropriately.

I went and bought a copper ingot at the auction house, but the quest doesnt complete when I talk to her. What up? She just says something about how the guild wont let her in or something.

You trade the ingot to her to complete the quest. Target her (click once) bring up you menu and choose trade. Put the ingot in the first slot and hit 'Ok'. She should then acknowledge that you've completed the quest and give you your reward.
she ask me for Silver Ingo
# Nov 09 2003 at 1:49 PM Rating: Default
After I handin Copper Ingot couple of times(actually I had done 2 times so far). She asked me for Silver Ingot not Copper. Im lvl 11 now. Guess this quest will upgrade when you're high lvl.

Learn to read. Michea is located in the house ABOVE THE ARMOR STORE IN BASTOK MARKETS. Use the stairs on the side of the store to get there. Thank you, drive through.

when you become a goldsmith, one of the npcs claim that a copper ingot is

1x chunk of copper ore
6x copper nuggets
1x fire crystal

Where do copper nuggets come from, and does the recipe listed here work?
RE: question
# Mar 17 2006 at 8:43 PM Rating: Decent
Most likely from mining but I ahve seen other nuggets been made via gardening... Search for Copper Nugget and you may find the way to get them.

I haven't found any Copper Nuggets yet, but I suspect that you get them from Mining, instead of killing monsters.

It didn't surprise me when I saw different recipes for the same item... it makes sense.

Note that you can get different recipes if you talk to the same people repeatedly... they'll give you recipes that you have a reasonable chance of succeeding at.

Where is Michea? I cant seem to find him/her..
RE: Where
# Feb 15 2004 at 11:23 PM Rating: Default
She is upstairs, above one of the shops in square F-10 (look on your map). The stairways are in between the shops - I think she's above the 2nd shop (or middle shop...).
