High Bear (I-8) is researching the pollution in Beadeaux. He needs you to go there and get some Corrupted Dirt (H-9, on the higher level) and bring it back to him to study. Wait until it starts to rain and then go to the lower level of Beadeaux and look for the ???. Click on it and bring the air back to High Bear.

I just did this quest (along with the curse collector quest). It was easy after a little waiting around for rain (which wore off right when i got to the stacks >.< lol). I'm thinking the ??? could spawn anywhere around that little island the stacks are on.

If it helps at all, here's a pic of the map where I found mine:

After a lot of running around, I found the ??? there also.

I tried to do this quest (in my current log) this weekend, with a printed version of the quest description itself and the first (the one below this) post. was in bedeaux for 3 days, went and checked the listed areas when it was raining, no ??? in either of the locations listed. On either the upper part or on the lower section of the area.

Anybody got any ideas to help me finis this??

Ive got level 9 bastok fame.

I just wanted to post on my experience with this quest real quick in case anyone is having trouble finding it. I followed "anonymous'" directions on how to get to the area and they were right on the money, so I would suggest using those. However, the ??? was not near/under the bridge at H-9. Mine was actually past the other bridge and located at G-10. So, if you are having trouble finding the ??? at the bridge near H-9 then go through the other bridge (you can't miss it) and check around G-10. Also, make sure you wait for it to rain or you won't find it.
I would also suggest that you do the "Curse Collector" quest at this time since both the Afflictor (curse) and The mute are right there as well. Zon Fobun in Bastok Markets gives this quest.

Check out the Bastokan Fame Guide to see what level fame you are. "Oh, you're _______" is level 3 fame...

You need level 4 fame or higher in Bastok to receive this quest. This is the level where Falco tells you, "Quite a few people are talking about the things you've done for Bastok. People are starting to talk about you. Keep on doing whatever you're doing!"
Here's the location!

First, grab a map of Beadeaux, cast sneak on yourself (get it cast on you, etc.) and head to H-7 where you will see a cave entrance, head down there.

You will then have to pass through the Afflictor which will temporarily curse you; your target is F-8. Walk up this spiral path at F-8.

Look for two giant smoke stacks (as the quest describes). Go under the bridge near them and at G-9 will be your ??? target to get the dirt.

Incredibly easy, just keep sneak on and rest if need be after passing through the Afflictor.

Okay I took my friend to complete this quest today and it seems there is another location, H-9, in the same area though. Again, just look for the giant smoke stacks.

I just did this, and the dirt for me was in H-9, south side of the smoke stacks.

Having difficulties as well. I tried to initiate it with a DRG18, with around 30 Bastok fame, Rank 3, and currently on the Beadeaux mission, and didn't receive it...
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 11 2003 at 8:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Maybe it's based on level? At level 20, I did not get this quest after doing more than 20 Bastok quests
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 10 2003 at 10:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You need a lot more than 5 fame for this. After doing 25 bastokan quests, he still doesnt offer it to me...
RE: Err...
# Apr 06 2004 at 5:15 AM Rating: Decent
LVL 5 fame does not mean 5 completed quests. Number of completed quests is by no means a measure of fame, since certain quests give you more fame than others, some are repeatable, etc
Actual Title

Actual Title for this quest is: Beadeaux Smog.

I was able to obtain quest with L5 fame. Never tried to get it before though.

L2 fame isn't enough.

I was finally able to get this quest when Flaco says
"Quite a few people are talking about the things you've done for Bastok."
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 25 2003 at 2:45 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I think you need some Fame to do this Quest. Because I didnt get it.
