In-Game Text


After completing the Quadav's Curse. Ronan will plead with you to "find a way to get his son out of that shell.." You speak with Mine Konte ( A Mithra in the port area, and she will tell you she's itchy, with her is another npc Tarutaru Panana who will discuss shell bugs, and it making Quadav armor itchy.) You will need 3 Shell bugs. They can be purchased in the Weapons/Ammo section of the auction house, or found in Beudeaux, East of the marshlands, on Copper or Bronze or Old Quadavs (mobs are about 20-30th level). Give Ronan the 3 Shell Bugs, he will tell you to come back later. Zone out of the Port area, and back in, and he will reward you with a Monk Headgear.

Monk Headgear vs Cotton Headgear (cross posted to Monk Headg
# Jul 24 2004 at 9:12 AM Rating: Default
I'm a Monk, level 29 (30 soon, hopefully)

I just recieved this in the "Out of One's Shell" Quest in Port Bastok.

Currently, I'm wearing Cotton Headgear (which has a +9 DEF). (In Fact, Here's all of my equipment).

Would I benefit from using the Monk Headgear over the Cotton Headgear? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you =^.^=

i got this quest earlier then lvl 20, probably around 13/14. the 20 min is for the area the shellbugs are, not hte quest itself.
worth it?

I haven't done this quest b/c the shell bugs were selling at auction for ~500gil and monk's headgear was selling for ~400. Unless you get the bugs off of quadavs, I would avoid this quest and the 1100 gil loss.
