In-Game Text


You need to complete the "Teacher's Pet" quest and have Fame Lvl 3 before you can obtain this quest.

The students' answer sheets from their recent written exam have been stolen. The School of Magic urgently requests that you track down the answer sheets and return them.

Talk to Tauwawa in the same room as Fuepepe. She mentions an advanced student, Chomoro-Kyotoro was waiting to meet Ms.Fuepepe but disappeared so doesn't know if the student met with the teacher.

Chomoro-Kyotoro will be found on top of the Aurastery in class. (K6) Others in class mention his nervousness.

The item needed is a 'RARE' item called Test Answers; description: a pile of test answer sheets.

You get Test Answers from killing Wendigoes inside the secret room of the 3 mages. That room is inside the Inner Horutoto Ruins and you need a Red Mage, Black Mage, and a White Mage to stand on the symbols outside the secret door.

As for the reward, it is a scroll of Aspir.

You take the answer sheets to Fuepepe who tells you to take them to the principal (Koru-Moru) in Walls. He tells you to return to Fuepepe and also gives you a key-item for Chomoro-Kyotoro.

When you speak with Fuepepe you recieve a scroll of Aspir (25BLM/20DRK).

wow.....ok. the aspir knife sucks, and only drains MP once every million hits. besides that, i doubt you will use this knife forever, while you can use the SPELL aspir until 75. sorry to burst your bubble =)

Hi everyone!

A little note to everyone who is like "wtf, sardines for hours, still cant get the quest!!!!".

Please note that the quest giver for the prerequisite quest "A teachers pet" is Moreno-Toeno, the quest giver for Aspir Quest (this quest) is Fuepepe (yeah, same room, same table, but another NPC).

Just know this because i did sardines myself and wondered why i could not get the quest while i allready had the fame needed for it (fame checked at the NPC in waters).

Long Story short: Talk to Fuepepe for Aspir quest, not Moreno-Toeno

Hey dude :)

It's Lvl 3 FAME... that's why I can't get it too lol. I guess do the bastore fish quest or do the cornette quest a bunch.
# Oct 14 2005 at 5:38 PM Rating: Decent
i dont think anyone knows what prerequisites you need to activate this quest i have 0 windy fame, and completed teacher's pet with blm main, zoned to west sarutabaruta came back and still cant get the quest flag...so does anyone really know? 150k is pretty expensive...
Fun for the whole.. Linkshell?
# Sep 23 2005 at 1:20 AM Rating: Decent
Alright.. on my way to do Mission 3-2, as a level 29 WHM, with Windy Fame lv 4, I got the test answers, without even looking. My buddy and I actually got agroed by so many Wendigos on the way there and back that two test answers dropped, so we both managed to get the scroll.
Having done the Teacher's Pet quest long ago, a little trip around Windy was all it took.
(And what a trip it was.. that Koru-Moru is really something XD)
Obtained: Aspir Scroll.
I can't decide whether to use it, or sell it XD
It goes for 150k on Asura's Windy AH, but I'm sure it's even more in Jeuno...
Fun times

I remember the first time I had anything to do with this quest... I was a level 7 rdm pulled in by some random people cause they needed someone to stand on the rdm circle. Got the test answers, and sold them for 7k not too much but pretty good for a level 7 redmage. When I'm level 50 I think I'll level blm up and do this quest again. Aspir sounds like a good complement to refresh.
just buy from AH
# Sep 13 2005 at 8:48 PM Rating: Decent
you can just buy the damn test answers on the AH. dont waste your time trying to find these damn wendigos and trying to get a drop.
Problem starting the quest

I wanted Aspir today and decided to quest for it since the price is ridiculous on Seraph @ 170k.

I couldn't get the quest activated so i completed the "Let sleeping dogs lie" quest that I already had activated.

After completing that quest I immediately went to see Fuepepe and he would not give me the quest. I was frustrated at this point, cause I just hate having to run around in this huge Windurst land >.> So i warped out(HP was set in Windurst to save travel time). Sadly sitting in my moghouse I decided to run back out to Fuepepe and see if the evil taru would miraculously give me the quest...and he did!!

So.. if you're having problems getting this quest started you should try completing the above mentioned quest and zoning out of Windurst Waters before seeing Fuepepe.

hope this helps, good luck.

I dunno whats the best way, I just remember trading a crap load of crawler calculus' to that one mithra by the dhalmel farm in Windurst Woods. I have like rank 6-7 fame in windy, but i've also done many many quest...
# Sep 12 2005 at 1:28 AM Rating: Decent
I am DRK20 and I was attempting to get aspir sice apparently you need fame level 3 what is the easiest way to get fame in windurst you can't do that Bastore sardine thing. The person you give it to will only accept one. So what is the best way to get fame for this quest?
RE: What?!
# Nov 01 2005 at 7:47 AM Rating: Default
Actually you can do this, you have to zone out and zone back in. I have Hero fame in Windy from this quest and I used warp to teleport to the homepoint, and it still took me a few hours
Did you know?
# Sep 11 2005 at 6:52 PM Rating: Decent
You know you can just buy a rolanberry and trade it to Kupipi (I think) she's in Heaven's Tower where you buy the world passes at. But anyways you trade it to her and it gives a cutscene and she gives you the portal key to open up those doors so you don't need to do the mission or drag along a blm whm and rdm. Good Luck!

i just want to get in the ruins
# Aug 23 2005 at 1:32 AM Rating: Decent
I've had this quest for two months, and I haven't bought the answers because on Asura they are rediculously priced. so I need to get into the ruins. Can you get the charm to open the door with out having the 3 mages... I heard you could if you traded a rollanberry to a taru in heaven's tower.
RE: i just want to get in the ruins

I believe the charm is open only to Windurst residents that have completed a mission that requires you go through the three mage door. So at a minimum you must go through the door once with three mages.

Not so. I didn't go into the three mage gate until I had my pass:).

To get it you must have completed 2-2. It is a skippable mission... so if you skipped 2-2, go back and do it (This is Windurst 2-2)...

Once completed trade a rolanberry to Ropipi? In the Giant tree, and she will give you an item that opens the 3 mage gate. If you give her the rolanberry before completing the quest, she will just be happy. However, once you complete the mission you do not need to trade her another one... Just talk to her, and she will give you the item.

It took me QUITE a while to figure out. In order to initiate the quest you must be set to main job Black Mage.

    My fame is lvl 3, did 22 quests in windy, i'm lvl 16 and did teacher's pet first, i DIDNT do "Let sleeping dogs lie" so that quest has nothing to do with this, the person who said they're 100% sure obviously ISNT 100% sure. My fame was lvl 3 for a while tho, but i didnt check in with the teacher till after i hit 16 so you can probably get it earlier with enough fame.
    Best Way to get fame
    # Jul 17 2005 at 4:48 PM Rating: Decent
    Imo, the best way to get fame for this quest is to make a mule in Bastok, go to Harmodios' Music Shop and buy 40 cornettes, then mail them to your character in Windurst, trading them in for the quest "Mandragora Mad." You don't have to be quite rich to buy these cornettes, they are about 247 gil each with no fame.
    Fame? How much?
    # Jul 15 2005 at 1:28 PM Rating: Decent
    just courious what lvl of fame i need activate this quest. I don't wanna waste time and money on raising it too high.

    thx for ne replies

    That is a legend, unfortunately. The only way to open the Mage Gate of the Horutoto Ruins by yourself is to complete Windurst Mission #3-2 for the Portal Charm (http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?fitem=5479).
