Find where the Goblins bury their junk.
Orlando is a collector. One man's junk is another's treasure. In this case, the junk dug up by Chocobos is treasure to Orlando.
Bring him a stack of 8 items for a reward as shown in the following chart:
All of these items are dug up by Chocobos (give the Chocobo a Gysahl Green to get him to dig). Some also drop off of random mobs. Remember to give them to him in stacks of 8.

This quest IS repeatable and can be repeated without zoning. Once you talk to him and trade the stack of 8 he pays you, then talk to him again and he will ask you again if you found anything. Once your done talking to him again trade another 8, and so on and so forth. I farm silver beastmen coins on my THF in Giddeus all the time and save everyone, then I come here on my mules and get easy Windy fame. (I don't know how much fame is per stack of 8 or how many stacks for each fame level, I just trade in a lot at once :D )
Also, I have found what is target as "Goblin's Footprint" all over Vanadiel in overlooked spots with the tab key. The one that is almost always there is just outside the gate leading from Windwurst Woods to E. Sara. Right when you clear the arch, take an immediate right, and its down along the wall a little, keep pressing tab. Another is right when you first enter the King's Tomb, take an immediate left, and hit tab. Nothing happens when you click on it. Anyone know what thise are for?
I'm can't remember what I did once(==>-->-->},
but i did or said something or dug or something to the 'goblin's footprint' right outside E. Sara gate, and he popped up, talked to me a little, then disappeared back into the ground. He said something about leaving him alone and not telling anyone. Anyway, has anyone done this before and know how to do it again, or know what goblin footprints are for in the game. I'd like to know, so please tell.
And yes, I had a couple of brews, but I did not make up or exagerate any of this story.
However, I'm still not a hundred percent sure about the chocobo digging thing, where to dig to get stuff, if there is anything to target, to show that something is buried.
Or better yet, trade it a single gil.
As for digging there is no targets or anything like that, you jsut run around digging. However at times you will get an odd msg on your screen which relates to something, read about it here http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=24&mid=1103310098619404023&num=3
Typing this up, I have never actually tried digging in the same spot twice, but I doubt he plants more then one item... will have to try that tonight anyways:).
I can say that I have not leveled my chocobo digging by following him around, but I have only dug up 3 items from him (it took about 20 minutes and I got bored considering the little amount of gil you get unless you get the random lucky gold beastcoin).
So far I have seen a goblin digger in every area that a chocobo can visit... and only in areas that a choco can visit. It appears that the little Moogle/choco/goblin contest that happened last winter was atually a way to promote the chocobo digging, which, it really seems to have done (at least on Carbuncle). I would recommend (like every other choco-digger out there:) to go with about 10 stacks, follow the goblin digger, and just dig as you go. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to run back to a town or safe area if you are in a zone above your level.
Oh, and one final note: The area you dig in has a distinct level for digging. If you dig in an area above your level, you will consistantly fail (ussually alot more then in a lower area). I personally went through over 1k stacks of greens to find this out, only to go at lvl 2 to the dunes and La thiene to get items every third or forth dig... However, getting a a couple 3k or a single 10k item is not bad... slow, and not too practicle, but great if you are waiting for a party:).
One last quick side note on this, I would recommend subbing ranger until you get familiar with the digger that are you tracking, they can be a pain to locate since their pattern pretty much spans the maps.
Oh, and if you see someone tracking a digger on a chocobo, don't kill him, that's just rude... They don't drop anything spectacular, and they are on par with the other gobs in the zone (e.g. if you are in a lvl 5-10 zone, the digger will be lvl 5-10, if you are in a 20-30 zone, they will be around lvl 20-30). Just find a different gob and respect the diggers. It can take up to 15 mins for one to respawn, and they will respawn randomly on their path (as far as I have been able to tell).
Is he asking for a stack of each items or just a stack of any of them list above?
Please let me know.
First you rent a chocobo from any stables and ride it to a zone where goblin diggers spawn, it easier to find them if you have the widescan ability of ranger or beastmaster but you can run across them easily enough. Follow the goblin digger, it will eventually stop and jump up and down, this is where you should dig because the goblin has just burried something.
I have seen the goblin diggers do this five times two of them I was not on a chocobo and once I did not get to see him close up when I dug. The items that I have gotten were 1 goblin cup and one fishbones.
If you dig in the same spot again you will not find another item, I can not confirm if you will get the same item from another dig in the same area when the goblin buries something again.
caz i m lvl 18, and Orlando just ignores me
