The latest edition of the "Magic Paradise Weekly," which features the exclusive report on "Where the Cat Burglar Hides her Kitty," has been stolen. The editor asks that you help retrieve it.


Talk to Naiko-Paneiko to start this quest, then head to Mhaura and take the boat to Selbina. Bring along a sturdy fishing pole and some Lugworms, Crayfish Balls, or a Sabiki Rig (or you can buy bait on the boat). Catch Ocean Crabs and kill them until one drops a Bronze Box.

Bring this back to Naiko-Paneiko to complete the quest and claim your reward.

if you have the bronze box in your inventory the quest will not start i had this problem alot i would have the item on me and the NPC will not give the quest just dump it in your mog storage, locker, safe, satchal then try again this item has been in my mog storage for 3 years(earth) now never found out what it was used for til i read this page i never threw it away because of the (rare)(ex) icon in the discription


the discription sounds like a dirty joke

"where the cat burglar hides her kitty"

I found this box fishin one day, so i looked it up and decided to do these quest. I had the box on me when i started both of them.
Easy for me, atleast.

LOL, i must be lucky. After reading all the comments about how hard this is (supposed) to be, I almost feel like a complete jerk. I got the Bronze Box after one catch aboard the boat, and I didn't even know about this quest!

Also, for some odd reason, she won't accept the bronze box and i can't start this quest. Maybe its because I just now finished the Headline quest and have to wait a bit?

A good level?

What level is recommended to attempt this quest?
Approximately what level are the crabs? Is this doable at level 30 without getting creamed by another enemy? As far as I understand, there are many high level enemies aboard the ship.

TIA. :-)

A good level?

Box Drop

My LS went Pirate hunting and about 4 of our members were fishing (11 total as we were in Alliance). Every member pretty much got a Bronze Box drop. Seemed like every 2-3 crabs draooped one.

Does it matter what rod you use? Is a bamboo rod ok?? As I was trying for 2 hours and still got nothing, but bastore sardines and qu's all the time and a pugil once. And I've been using lugworms as bait. killed a few crabs on deck, but got nothing *sigh

When I found my box, I was using just the basic Tarutaru Rod and Minnows that they sell on the ship. I don't think the drop is based on the rod/bait you use, just a matter of luck. Hope you were able to finally get it!

i found the box from a crab that was already on the boat i believe but it might have been someone elses catch
i suck

This is VERY easy!
Did about 3 trips with only lv 1 fishing, and mithran rod, lugworm....

Got first drop from pop - five dropped by 3rd trip - I was looking for sand charm so this was an added bonus! ;)

Lucky was in pt after sea horror popped (twice ><) - we got one each in the end...

Best drop rate came from sea crab pops btw....no need to even fish
easy! / lucky!

Getting Box

This box was a pain for me to get. I did around 15 trips on the boat, killed as many crabs as I could and fished the whole time. I finally got one dropped off a crab I fished up and killed.

Just a FYI - it might take a while for you to get this but keep trying...
# Dec 21 2004 at 8:20 PM Rating: Decent
I got mine with a sabiki rig and a glass fiber rod!

So hard probably

This quest is gonna be so hard if you can barely catch the mobs that drop the box.
RE: So hard probably
# Oct 30 2004 at 6:04 PM Rating: Decent
I have found that I average a box dropping crab every 2-3 boat trips. I fished up a few for me and a couple of friends last night. Comp. Rod + Sabiki lure. fishing lvl 27 (though this shouldn't matter much as I said in my last post)

Even if you arn't much for fishing, they will also spawn randomly on deck. Fishing them up is just much faster.
Rod and Bait
# Oct 02 2004 at 6:39 AM Rating: Decent
What type of rod and bait do you have to use to fish up the crabs?
RE: Rod and Bait
# Oct 30 2004 at 6:00 PM Rating: Decent
Like all monsters you fish up the bait and rod you use don't really matter. I used a composite fishing rod and a sabiki lure. The only reason I chose that bait was that it can be purchased on the boat and I use that rod for everything (until I get lu shang's).

I caught my crab&the box on the way FROM Selbina TO Mhaura, so either direction is ok.

Naiko-Paneiko will be rather upset when he finds out the catburglar overwrote the story with "The key is in the cardian's stomach"

I wonder if this means you can open de door by whacking cardians until one drops the key...
