In-Game Text


Head to Port Jeuno and talk to Guddal, who tells you that there are 2 ways to get the pass; pay 148,000 gil or give him 3 keys: Giddeus Chest Key, Ghelsba Chest Key, and Palborough Chest Key.

  • Giddeus Chest key from Yagudo Priest, Yagudo Votary, and Yagudo Theolgist in Giddeus.

  • Ghelsba Chest Key from Orcish Fighter, Orcish Serjeant, and Orcish Cursemaker in Yughott Grotto or Fort Ghelsba.

  • Palborough Chest Key from Old Quadav, Brass Quadav, and Copper Quadav in Palborough Mines.

Return to Guddal and give him the keys he gives you a Airship Pass to Kazham.

I got the keys but when i tried to give then to the guy in Jeuno he said nothing. my friend told me i didnt have the expansion installed. Which didnt amke sense to me seeing as ive installed it and registered it.

Anyhoo, if i get the keys before i install the Expansion (again) can i still do the quest?

Rank 5 pass?

is this airship pass the same as the rank 5 airship pass? Assume someone, for whatever odd reason, decided to pay 500,000 gil for the pass. Would he have a full rank 5 airship pass? Or does completing this quest only allow you to ride to kazham? I'm not very knowledgable about airships so I'm just curious.

The above post is incorrect, my LS leader just purchased the pass for 500k and can ride airship to everywhere EXCEPT Kazam.

True ^^

For the last time, there are two passes :

A) The Kazham airship pass, which allows acces to Kazham from Jeuno and back. 148k or the 3 keys.

B) The "standard" airship pass, which allows access from the starting cities to Jeuno and back. One pass gives you access to those three routes, but not kazham. Price : 500k, or get rank 5.

So far all i could find was the Palborough key which took me and a friend 4 hours to find 1 key. Thank god he already had it. I haven't yet gone into geshelba to even attempt that key since i have spent 2 hours trying to find the giddeus key which have so far failed. So this quest is frustrating as hell for me and i hate hearing all the.....i got it on the first monster i killed......stories.
Easy drop trick
# Feb 12 2004 at 11:42 PM Rating: Default
Ok, a trick I've found with these drops is to get a non-melee type (whm, blm, etc) to get in the final blow. The droprate is even higher if said non-melee does not have the key in his/her inventory. Either that, or a bunch of us just got lucky all the time.

Drop stats for various groups I was in to get the keys for myself and others that needed them (and I give my word of honor I am not lying):

Giddeus: 4 drops in 3 vots and 1 theo
Palborough: 1 Copper and 1 Brass for 1 drop
Ghelsba: 2 Cursemakers and 1 Fighter for 1 drop

It took me a total of 15 minutes (plus teleport/choc travel time--total of about 1.5 hours for all 3...maybe just 1 hour...not 100% sure) to get the keys. At the time I was a 25whm/9blm on server Diablos. Time of day was varied in all 3 cases, never at night. I got final hit on all the drops, but on 2 of the 3 non-drops, I did not get the final blow. One drop I used magic, but I assume that attack magic for a whm is also not normal (similar hypothesis for weapon attacks). I got the final blow using a weapon skill (seraph strike - not sure of the spelling). I might have just gotten a lucky streak, but each group complained about taking 4-5 hours for their drop when I got mine right away.

I hope this helps all of you who are doing this quest to get your keys as quickly as I did.

It has a higher chance of dropping if your melees don't have it because it's Rare/Ex, and if all your party needs it I think it'll be a higher chance to drop. There isn't a trick to coincidence.
Just to inform...

You can also get the Palborough Key from Mine Scorpions. I had a higher-level partner help me get my key, and after I did he stopped to kill a scorpion and another key dropped. I don't know the chance of dropping; we both had Treasure Hunter.

Does anyone know if or when FFXI will be able to be played with Game cards like SWG and other stuff.. Coz i aint 18 so i cant get a credit card.. and stuff thanx :D
RE: payment
# Mar 14 2004 at 6:01 PM Rating: Decent
Try opening a bank account with TCF or any other bank that will give you a visa or mastercard check/debit card you should be able to just use the card number (not your account number) and it will be registered as a credit card. As long as you have enough money in your account, you shouldn't have any problems.

Did this last night...
# Feb 05 2004 at 11:55 AM Rating: Decent
First orc in the list I saw dropped the key in the Grotto. Quadav's took a while (had two groups to fend off). Yagudos took a while...at least 40.

This was with a friend who was a lvl 41 RDM and subbed with a lvl 15 THF.

Got the keys easy
# Feb 05 2004 at 9:59 AM Rating: Default
HAHA only took me 6 of each to get them. I heard they drop better at night.

12 Orcs, 3 quadav, 50 freaking yagudo!

Soloed at 25mnk/12war. What a pain. No worse than the 10 straight hours I spent in Gusgen for a skull, however.

1) Purhcase map of Giddeus from Windhurst.. it's in Windy Woods near the big tree, two mithra in some sort of hut.
2) To go Giddeus. Take the west path, then go to location H7... it's sort of an alcove on the west side.
3) Fall down the hidden hole at H7. You should fall into a lower level that sort of looks like the head of a snake.
4) Go south from here... you go back up... eventually you need to go to the big box to the south. Don't fall off the ridges.

I'm doing this as a 25Thf/12whm the whm sub is just to reduce downtime.. I normally would sub war for provoke and defense bonus. Anywayz, my hint is this.

When you get into the area looking for the key ask a higher level player that is farming in the area to help you. In return offer all the drops except the key. This has worked for me a couple of times. Of course, I have Treasure Hunter which makes more drops so this would sound more appealing coming from a THF, but I would imagine any good farmer would see this as beneficial (reduced down time, and double crystal drops)

Just thought I would put in my "drop stats" on this very lenghty subject.


Ghelsba key (actually gotten in the Grotto) dropped after 2 Fighters and 2 Cursemakers. Lucky day? They were the easiest to solo which leaves me to beleave that Orcs just suck in general. :)

Palsborough key dropped after 20+ Old, 15 Brass and 2 copper. I had to get help from the locals with this one. We had a theif, but it didn't seem to help with the drop rate. A group of 6 can tear through this dungeon easily. The problem is, there arn't a lot of quadavs to go around.

Giddeus key dropped after 2 Votarys. I guess luck was on my side that day. Good thing too, because they were the hardest out of all the creatures from the other cave. Not only do they cast magic, but they double hit and stun. They're like Dragoon/Red Mage/Ninjas.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 28 2004 at 2:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) why did you tell him, I was going to say that you need to hp back in jeuno and kill yourself every time he/she want to go back.

took about 20/25 quadavs to make one drop, ended up solo as my whm + war both got connection losses and died but was able to solo them as a 24/12 bm/rm taru, best place to kill them is up by the entrance to the burning circle so if things go wrong you can zone, only had to do it once while i was soloing but it was a nice safety net to have there

im having some problems with this quest. i got all the keys then i went to jueno and talked to guddan or whatever (the galka im supposed to trade the keys to) and he didnt do anything, so i tried talking to him... all he said was "this is the air rout to the island". traded it to him again... nothing... then i talked to EVERYBODY around in both rooms and some ppl outside, got nowhere... any ideas why i cant get the damn pass ppl??

RE: help!
# Jan 25 2004 at 3:18 AM Rating: Excellent
Had a friend with the same problem... Figured it out too. You need to register (just not install, but also Register) the expansion pack... (disk 4) You can register it from the same menu as you purchase more Content Id's... The bottom button before you actually enter the game. Hope it helps... =)
RE: help!
# Jan 24 2004 at 11:31 PM Rating: Decent
I have a friend having the same problem, anyone know how to fix this? 28rdm/14blm mithra was able to hand it in and get pass. 25thf/12mnk mithra was with her and got the same thing from the guy about the air route and couldn't hand in keys....if anyone can shed some light it would be great. Both of them are rank 2
RE: help!
# Jan 28 2004 at 11:30 AM Rating: Default
you need to register the Zilart expansion. Kazham is a new area from the expansion. No expansion registered, no entry to Kazham or Korroloka Tunnel in Bastok.
# Jan 23 2004 at 9:44 AM Rating: Default
if you know how to play I.E.:skill chain,provoke,pull then why are you letting the Newbs do the pulling?

as far as area efect spells your suposed to warn people when its dangerous.dont asume they know better!

as far as tanking is concerned ive watched level 40+ paladins suck at it and melee taru's be almost untouchable by mobs. tanking is a skill dont asume the armor is the be all end all.

the biggest problem with teams i see is not getting ready prior to pulling monsters,not getting a SC set,not having a voke order...
and worst of all ignoring a call to zone by your healer.
Rather fast
# Jan 21 2004 at 2:01 AM Rating: Decent
It took me 4 Quadavs, 7 Yagudos, and 5 Orcs to get the keys. :)
# Jan 20 2004 at 12:53 PM Rating: Default
oh, also this quest is not to allow you to beable to fly everywhere. you need to be rank 5 to beable to use all the other airships. But Kazham is very much worth it later on.

I would suggest having a high level thief in your party so the keys drop faster. I had a level 45 Thief help me and the keys dropped within 3 kills in each area.
the keys
# Jan 20 2004 at 12:50 PM Rating: Default
29 whm would be fun to solo. Especially the giddeus and grotto one's. Pal Mines is the easiest of the 3. Since they only have 2-3 Quadav's to a room. I'm sure you could solo that one. Best suggestion is level up to 30 before doing this quest. There's other good places to level up from 24-30 and once you get to 30 the weaker monsters won't agro you. It speeds it up quite nicely.

lv 40 paladin
lv 30 warrior
lv 11 thief
lv 10 ninja
lv 7 dragoon
lv 7 whm
