On FFXI wiki it says it takes 27.1 stacks of La Theine Cabbage to get to rank 2 fame.

This is incorrect I traded exactly 30 stacks and am still level 1 fame.

Which fame are you talkin' about?

Only applies to Bastok, Sandy, and Jeuno fame and excludes Windy!
Which city?

I have been doing the fame increase for Sandy. What I have discovered that for every 30 stacks of La Theine Cabbage that I trade I go up 1 fame level for sandy. It isn't too expensive to do considering you get most of your gil back. but it is very time consuming. I did it with my level 18 BLM so I could warp back to sandy when done trading. I did it with no armor or weapons, or anything else in inventory. So I could cary 30 stacks of cabbage. I rented a chocobo for the trip to selbina then warped back to sandy. Also as my fame went up the cabbage got cheaper. I hope this helps someone else.

P.S. dont buy the cabbage at the AH, buy it from grocer. The AH is way overpriced.

so how many boyahda moss stacks does it take 2 reach lvl 2 jueno fame?
millioncorn from NPC
# Dec 26 2006 at 4:58 PM Rating: Decent
rubahah in whitegate(f-9) sells the corn for 48 gil apiece, trading in 3 pieces gives 120 back, with a loss of 24x4 gil per stack, or 96 gil per stack. if you trade 50 stacks (as said above to be more than enough fame for avatar fights) thats a whopping 4800 gil loss to pay for max fame.

max fame with millioncorn
# Oct 26 2006 at 6:50 PM Rating: Good
so far from what ive been reading, people are trading in alot of the moss, and ive figured out that you can max you fame in sandy bastok and jeuno with one run *if your turning in moss* and it would take alittle more than 25 stacks, but this is just an estimate. with 25 stacks of moss you hear the fame noise 300 times which would mean that if you had zero fame in sandy or bastok and hearing that noise 300 times indeed maxed your fame, it would take 75 stacks of millioncorn to equal the 300 turn-in's, roughly 3 trips if you dont have gobbiebags done. if you buy from the vendor for 50 gil a corn it'll cost you 45,000 gil to buy it all without the money you get back from him, but with the money you get back you'll only spend 9k gil! which is pretty amazing if this does indeed max your fame, now all i need is hardcore proof so if someone wants to try this, be my guest and please post your fame after the turn-in's but im going to be trying this sometime soon so if nobody try's it before i do, ill post the results i get. well that pretty much sums up most of what ppl have been posting about so now ya dont have to read this whole forum to figure out whatcha need XD enjoy

20 stacks get you level 7 fame in Sandy. So I think you esitmate is correct. A little about 25.

I got a yield of 23 Millicorn Ears from gardening. Planted a bag of grain seeds on a ceramic pot and fed a wind cristal on firesday. Hope this helps

Can your fame level actually drop? For example, if i am a Hero (lvl 9 Fame) in Sandy and Bastok, and i do some quest tht lowwers fame in some odd way, will my fame lvls actually drop a level?
# Sep 11 2006 at 4:30 AM Rating: Decent
Okay, i seem to be having a problem with this quest so i'd like to find out wether i've done something wrong. I've traded many of the mentioned items to Melyon, yet i've not noticed any increase in fame for Bastok/Sandy at all. Does this quest still work or does the fame increase only work when you're not doing any missions currently?
26 stacks of millioncorn
# Aug 25 2006 at 6:15 PM Rating: Decent
I was doing this quest to get enough fame in Bastok to get the Mean Machine quest for the warp scroll. I loaded up on 26 stacks of million corn (currently 0 Bastok fame), after trading them all I am now level 4 Bastok fame. Needless to say this is a great quest for fame building and I also made a slight profit. I recommend trading 3 millioncorns instead of paying 10k or more for a stack of boyahda moss or buying the stacks of La Theine Cabbages. I haven't checked what it did for me in Jeuno, but I am from Sandy and was level 2 fame when I get back to check my fame there I'll repost.
Norg Quests

Okay, I finally got off my butt and got my Norg fame leveled. And I have all of the quests I'll bother with (except for the WS and AF quests)flagged. My question is, if they are flagged, and I do this quest (and my Norg fame is lowered from level 4), will I still be able to finish all of these flagged quests later on when I need the items. I really don't feel like actually doing all of them until I need them. =/

My guess is that I would be able to finish them and get my items, but I don't know. Would the quest unflagg(word?)? Or would the NPCs just act like the quest isn't even flagged? That'd be a bunch of BS....

24 stacks of cabbage
4 stacks of moss (because they are 15k a stack on midgard...)
8 stacks of corn.
Before I did this, all my fame levels were at 0 (except windurst but windy doesn't count anyway)

Jeuno - 4
Sandoria - 3
Bastok - 4

71 Stacks of Millicorn
Rank 1 ~> Rank 6 in Jeuno approximately.
# Jul 10 2006 at 5:27 PM Rating: Decent
This quest is really helpful. It's slow going with the millicorn, but overall it's getting the job done.

I'm just glad quests like this are around so newer players can try and catch up to friends that have been playing for a while.

You have to be careful with this quest. I just finished up getting enough yag necklaces to do the utsusemi quest in norg, and then I did about 10 stacks of moss. Little did I know that this quest LOWERS Norg fame, and it dropped it down to about level 2 norg fame. The Moss will lower your fame, Corn does not, and I'm not sure if cabbage does or not, can anyone confirm?

That's because you increase Jeuno's fame. If you try to increase jeuno's fame while you have norg's fame, it will reduce your norg's fame. Best way is max out jeuno's fame, then do norg's fame later.
