Mission Orders

You are to join a surprise attack on the Quadav stronghold in Beadeaux.
See Iron Eater in the President's Office for details.


Note: You may have to trade up to one stack of crystals to a gate guard before this mission is offered.

Speak to any Bastokan Gate Guard to accept this mission. After accepting the mission, you will be sent to Iron Eater at (J-8) of the Metalworks, who guards the door to the President's Office. Volker will instruct you to help the Iron Musketeers with an attack on the Quadav stronghold of Beadeaux, which is located at the southeast exit of the Pashhow Marshlands. Your task in Beadeaux is to exterminate 20 Copper Quadavs. Each kill will count for everyone in the alliance, so teaming up will not slow your progress down.

After defeating 20 Copper Quadavs, zone out of Beadeaux to get a cutscene to finish this mission.

Note: If you warp, escape, or die to get out of Beadeaux, you must return to Beadeaux and zone out to get the cutscene to finish the mission.


To read the transcripts for this mission, see The Four Musketeers Spoilers page.

Plenty of Copper Quadavs near the entrance areas of Beadeaux. Along with Old Quadavs and Brass Quadavs. Some Pugils there too. All aggro but were not difficult when duoing as WAR23 and BLM23.
Easy if you know how

I soloed this with my lv 34 red mage subbed with a lv 15 monk if you want my advice stay near the entrance and attract copper quadavs with spells then kill them off one by one. do not go up above as powerful quadavs lie in wait there everything on the ground is usually to weak to be worthwhile you'll find a couple of coppers that are easy pray

is there any way to see how many quadav you have killed so far or do you just have to keep count in your head?

Bastok = ****
Quadav = Jews.

Poor Quadavs
The best part of Final Fantasy XI is its rich storyline. It separates this game from other MMORPGs. I chose to give my character a storyline that goes along with the game's storyline. I find that this is a more fun way to play the game. Playing the game just to fight in the endgame and collect elite equipment is very boring and is totally missing the main objective of the game, which is to guide your character through the storyline which is to save the world.
Anyone new like me?

31mnk/15war this quest is cake. I enjoyed it tho. It doesnt look like anyones posted on these rank quests in a long time, If anyone is new and and just got a late start on this game like myself, hit me up. Im down for ANYTHING.
ONLY Copper Quadavs.

I got this mission and headed to Beadeaux. I counted and killed the first 20 Quadav that I saw and returned to Iron Eater to find that I hadn't completed the mission yet. I went over the guide in the guide book and...okay, ONLY killing COPPER QUADAVS count for the mission. I had to go all the way back and kill some more. By the way, if you kill some Coppers, exit, and return to kill more, the number of mobs that you've obliterated will still count.

Ok, I just got back from Beudasojfa w/e and killed the 20 coppers and got the cut scene. I'm standing inside metal works and I can't complete this mission. I talked to both the gate gaurds, Naji and Malduc, then Iron Eater and it hasn't done anything. I even went to the I.M. signet guy and talked to him, but still nothing. The mission help says to just talk to the gate gaurd and then Iron Eater to complete the quest. BUT I ALREADY DID!!?!!?!? Can someone plz help me, althogh i think i'm talking to no one. >_<

Just completed this one in a party of two with a 22WHM/11BLM(me) and a 22WAR/10THF. Pretty straight forward, We were getting a pretty consistent 60-80 exp per kill to boot.

There's no need to go very far into the zone, beyond the second gate the coppers will spawn, it's a matter of picking the ones you want from back behind the gate and avoiding aggro from quadavs and pugil, shouldn't be a problem really just be patient.
I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don’t let anybody tell you different.
Getting thiq mission

For all those who don't see this mission on their list @cleadus just donate some crystals to the I.M. guy at the gate, if your points bar is filled like 3/10 to 4/10 the mission will become available

How do I start this mission?
# Apr 26 2005 at 10:40 PM Rating: Decent
Okay....I am seriously gettin pissed off. I have tried starting this mission by going to Iron Eater and he says that the Presidents Room is for higher level adventurers. I go to Cleades and he only offers me the Wading Beast and Fetchism. I have also traveled back to Windy to speak with the consulate just to make sure I did not miss anything on the previous mission. I have also traveled to Beadeaux thinking it might start when I enter the area I have no clue on how to start this mission. Can you please help?
RE: How do I start this mission?
# Jun 21 2005 at 10:12 AM Rating: Decent
you must be rank 3, this is not to go to rank 3. finish those two missions, feed the gaurds some crystals if you're low on rank points, and do the other two missions.
RE: How do I start this mission?
# May 01 2005 at 12:13 PM Rating: Decent
Have you donate some Crystals to get enough Ranking points?

I'm doing this mission with my 25/11 MNK/THF. I have to pull the quadav to the starting gate with the goblin and watch for the aggros. I can take them one on one but if they link, I have to zone. But yes, it can be done solo if you play your cards right.
