I was running around Bastok trying to get some fame with random quests, when I met this little Galka and accidentally got the quest. Well I didn't give much attention to the fact that I needed a Mythril Sallet, but I was running just a few corners away and saw a Galka player with his Bazaar up. I have a problem with always looking in people's Bazaars just for fun. Anyways, I looked in his and he had a Mythril Sallet for 50k o_O

I went to ask him about it, and let him know that it was for a quest, but said that I don't have nearly 50k, so thanked him and went to ran away. He /said to me "You can borrow it if you want for the quest." I was like O_O!!!

So he followed me to the little Galka, traded me the helm, and I did the quest and promptly gave it back. I'm really glad that he was a trusting character, and knowing that I, myself, am a trustworthy person, cause it was an EASY finish to a quest that could most likely be REALLY annoying later down the road.

There still are some good people in this world. I don't advise trusting just anyone, but all I know is this Galka player really helped me out a ton. Good people. :)

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong thing, but... I'm trying to buy the Sallet from Brunhilde (the armor shop in Markets) and he wants 56k for it @[email protected] Shops are usually MUCH cheaper than the AH, so I'm confused. I have rank 5 or 6 fame :/

Edit: I just checked the AH and it's going for roughy 40k. Wtf?

When you do this quest, you trade Detzo the sallet, and a cutscene begins. You will have it back by the time the cutscene is over. I purchased the sallet at the AH for 8500 gil (which was a terrible mistake...I meant to bid 7500), and now I have put it back up at the AH. The Wolf Gorget is pretty much worthless, at least at the Bastok AH. It only sells for 500 gil. Try and find someone who will let you borrow their sallet, and just give it right back to them after the cutscene.

How to initiate

do you need fame for this quest? Same question as above... he just asks me if I've seen Gumdah... Maybe I need to talk to him??? Location?

I had 30 quests done and he wouldn't give it to me, until I did the Drachenfall quest.

This quest has no relation to the Drachenfall quest. I have completed this quest (Rivals) and have yet to do Drachenfall.

This quest definately requires a certain degree of fame. I was rank 3 fame when I did this quest.

This quest requires MAD fame... when you talk to him a cut scene starts where he asks for gumbha... so if you dont get a cut scene you dont have enough fame yet... altho i did with 29 bastokian quests i have some repeats as well (and 30+ both in SanD and Windy even if not applicable).

I dont know if theres a fame restriction. I dont have much fame (19-25 quests, several repeated) in Bastok and I got it.

I did it right after I did the DRK flag quest, which involves Gumbah too... so maybe you have to talk to him before you talk to Detzo? Just a guess.

There IS a fame restriction. It wouldn't give me the quest (asking me if I had seen Gumbah) until I got level 3.

Borrow?

Detzo is in Bastok Mines, on the lower level of Ore Street, at (I-6).

A Mythril Sallet goes for about 11,000 on auction. He does give it back to you. The Wolf Gorget goes for about 300 on auction, or 600 in stores.

What I want to know is, is there a way to get the Mythril Sallet without buying it on auction? Usually buying the item(s) required for a quest on auction is considered the short way to do it... If you can get it otherwise, this would be a quest with a pretty nice payoff (for once).
where
