Go stamp hunting!
Get all the stamps for Arawn's stamp sheet from guards all over Bastok.


Talk to Arawn at (J-10) of Bastok Markets to begin this quest. Arawn will give you a blank stamp sheet so you can help him collect stamps. There are seven guards throughout Bastok that you must talk to in order to complete this quest.

Bastok Markets

Bastok Mines
  • Deadly Spider: (G-8), on the second level of the Depot.
  • Tall Mountain: (J-7), near the Alchemist Guild, guarding the off-limits area.
Bastok Metalworks
  • Romualdo: (K-9), at the Southern Cannonry, near the President's Office.
  • Elayne: (G-8), in the temple down the stairs between the elevators.
Port Bastok
  • Ehrhard: (G-5), standing on the northeast corner outside of Warehouse #1.
  • Latifah: (J-8), north of the drawbridge.

After collecting all seven stamps, speak to Arawn again to complete the quest and receive a Leather Gorget.

I've never ever heard of anyone getting an Iron Sword from this quest. Ever. Times a bajillion. Why would an iron ingot make this so? Unless...

Kid: "Thanks for the stamps! Oh look! An iron ingot! I like those! But I hate iron swords, so you can have mine!"

Back when I made wax swords for alchemy, I was hoping there was someone like that for wax swords and gil...

Man: "Boy, do I love wax swords! But I hate gil. So I'll give you 50,000 gil for each wax sword you give me! KSDFJDSKFSDFDSFLKJF."

I can dream.

Anyways, this is a good quest for anyone new to Bastok, since it lets you learn the layout of the city.

The Ingot thing must be a hoax.. nothing happened for me. I'm not buying his story. Rate him down plz.
# Feb 28 2004 at 12:14 AM Rating: Default
You must get all stamps then talk to him again. He will give you your leather gorget. If he does not talk you missed some. Retrace your self shouldn't take long.

I did not have the ingot in possesion to start, but added it when I finished and only got a gorget. You may need it to start and finish this quest with the better reward.

Iron Ingot needed?!
# Feb 07 2004 at 7:15 AM Rating: Default
so is it been confirmed that in order to acquire "Iron Sword" as the reward for this quest you need "Iron Ingot" in possession?!
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 23 2004 at 3:31 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I think the problem is that you're purchasing a Silver ingot and not an Iron Ingot.

I also can't finish this quest. I have all the stamps and have talked to the kid. =/
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 30 2003 at 3:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Thank your for WASTING MY TIME(whoever said u get an iron sword on this quest!!)

that silver ingot
# Nov 22 2003 at 4:09 PM Rating: Default
so...do we really need the silver ingot? or not?
mmmm... Gorget
# Nov 22 2003 at 4:35 AM Rating: Default
This stupid quest does work fine, and if you have no ingots to speak of in your inventory you get that lousy gorget garbage... that much is for sure and that works without incidence.
Can't Find...

I can't find Ehrhard. I'm in Warehouse 2 and 1 in the basement and noone is named that. Is he somewhere else or does he come in at only a certain time?

He's not there at certain times (from my experience with this quest,) I'm not sure what the times are. Just come back later if he isn't there.

I found no discussion of a silver ingot in any of the quest messages - did not buy one (no money) - and did not get the sword.

ive completed it, i think having the silver ignot, reason being is becuse when i completed it i had no such item in possesion, in possesion will grant you the gift of iron sword, that is after youv'e completed it. tall is in the same zone as deadly spider. he is behind a armorsmith i believe. there is a flight of stairs leading downward behind teh smith. that stair way will lead to a long hall way, allie, go down the allie pressing tap auto locating nearest npc and you should find him near the end.

I carefully did every guard... and only received a leather gorget. I could not find anything in the quest prompts about a "Silver Igot".... Where is that requirement set?

I don't have one - can't afford one.

# Nov 07 2003 at 11:34 AM Rating: Default
You don't have them all.
