Kurando claims that every time the airship flies over Rolanberry, a horrible beast appears. The best he is referring to is a Silk Caterpiller. It spawns when airship passes around K-7. (Be careful, it links with Berry Grab, and there are Evil Weapons around. Level 30 will read it Even Match.) Kill the beast and return the Silkworm Egg it drops to Kurando so he may validate his fear of flying to others.

Can this quest be repeated
Easy Kill
# Jan 06 2007 at 8:03 PM Rating: Decent
I just soloed this as a lvl 31 BLU/ NIN. Killed it in about 35 sec with only 50 hp lost. I definitely could of taken it out at lvl27 or 28. Very easy kill.

Im a lvl50 THF and i just killed the NM for this quest, got drop, but when i go talk to this guy all he says is "Do i like airships? are you crazy? they're a menace". and if i trade to him he says nothing. can somebody give me info on how to get this quest??
Edit: i have little or no fame in bastok could that be the reason??

also if you guys want to talk about killing the mob do it on the page about the nm not the one about the quest it gets things cluttered.

Yes, that is going to be the reason 90% of the time you can't get a quest. I'm afraid I dont know just how much fame IS needed though, unfortunately.

This mob might be lvl 30 but I doubt it.

Safe kill as rng30 or nin30

Found it in the SE corner of H-7. When you find the solitary tree, it's just nw of that, still in the H-7 corner.

Couldn't get any easier. Battle went something like this...
Freeze: 757 dmg
Weapon: 26 dmg
ShockSpikes: 6 dmg

I'd say it's health is right around 784-789.

Easy as a 51BLM/WHM.

For some reason everytime i try and start the quest it won't allow me too. and i check my quest and i haven't started let alone completed it. I have the egg. Could someone please advise
RE: starting the quest

Not to be smart or anything but you ARE level 30 right? Or atleast, the job you're maining at the time you try and get the quest? I had a L73 BLM help me get the egg (One cast of Blizaga III was more than enough to take it out) only to realize that as a 22BLM I couldn't get my much desired kerchief yet.

Killed as a 25 Drk/Nin.

Had to 2hr it, and use a hi potion i had on me.

Well, I just solo'd it WHM40/BLM20.

Cast Stoneskin, Blink, Aquaveil & Blaze Spikes and has protect/shell on.

I bound it, got in a Dia II, Banish II and Blizard before bind wore off, I melee'd and cast Banish > Blizard to take him down.

It was incredibly easy and droped (I think it drops all the time but I'm not sure).

Just killed the Silk Caterpiller twice in a row. As said, it is very easy to find it. Lower right corner of K-7. I did it at night, and during the day. Didn't see the airship, but saw spawn easily both times. Did it as 50 RDM/25 WHM. Barely damaged me before Stoneskin first time, using other spells to beat it down; left me at 676/804 second time (didn't use anything besides Protect II and Shell II) and I fought it only with sword, besides the initial Fire II to get it's attention. Took it out in seconds and got egg both times. No exp at this level though it read "Impossible to gauge". It tried to poison me but it didn't work either time. I didn't see any of the Berry Grubs mentioned at all. My fame was 3 or 4 when I got the quest. I'm from Sandy, so had to get fame for other quest (Mainly to get Teleport-Dem scroll: AH prices for tele scrolls are completely rediculous especially since I am soloing the quests very easily with no problems with my 50 RDM). My WHM is 35, so I figured I'd get tele scroll quests because to poor to by from AH and logged this quest to get fame. Wasn't needed for fame, but doing it now since in Rolanberry area. Easy quest to do if higher level. If you need fame, good one for it.
nice drop
# Dec 19 2004 at 8:03 AM Rating: Decent
the spawns easy to find, and the drop is common, did this twice with a LS friend, 20k for him, item for me.

I just got this quest at Fame lvl 3. The caterpiller was easy to kill too.

I'm having the same problems as some others here. I can't get the quest, he just says, "Do I like airships? Are you crazy!? They're a menace!" and that's it, nothing else. I TRIED trading it to him, but that didn't do anything either. So, I slapped him a few times, then tried talking to him again, no good. Then I poked him a couple times, that didn't work. So, I gave up and left him to rot in Port Bastok.

Kurando Location Correction
# Jul 12 2004 at 9:33 PM Rating: Decent
Technically, Kurando is at (H-7) not (H-6). He's next to the "Harbor Way" S wall, down the stairs at H-6.

I was able to get this quest as a lvl 17 war with lvl 4 or 5 fame in Bastok.

The min level needed to initiate the quest is NOT 30.

I am currently lvl 22 and waiting for a high level friend to come help me kill the caterpillar.
RE: Min level
# Oct 17 2005 at 10:58 AM Rating: Decent
notice how your waiting for a high level... cause you can't complete the quest without atleast a lvl 30... hence the level requirment of 30.

Just because it says min level, doesn't mean that you have to be that level to initiate the quest. Just means that it's prefered.
