Only one person can do this quest per in game day. Zauko needs someone to help light the Streetlamps along the shoreline. You have to light all 12 lamps after 21:00 and before 1 in the morning to finish the quest.

This quest can be received and completed between 18:05 and 1:00 the next day. Upon second completion, Zauko gives the Key Item "Lamp Lighter's Membership Card".

Dont waste your time redoing this quest to gain fame, redo the Selbina quest "Only the Best" instead. It gives Bastok, Sandy and Jeuno fame.
Set HP in Sandy, buy cabbage at Raimbroy's Groceries (fill up your inventory), chocobo to Selbina, trade and warp back. Rinse and repeat.
Question about key item.

After all those post I cannot belive noone asked. After you do it successfuly he gives you the key item but says you can give it back. Has anyonr ever tried giving it back to him? I may try tonight.....

I was surfing the net the other day over FFIX sites and found one that showed the fame quests in each city but I have forgotten which website it was. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have seen a link on a website that shows all the fame quests for the different cities. I was wondering if anyone had any idea what website this might be since I have the worst memory.
Fame 2?
# Apr 13 2006 at 8:32 PM Rating: Decent
I did this quest 4 times and went from 0 to 1 in fame. Now I have done this quest about 12 times and still stuck at fame 1. Anyone know how many you have to do to get to fame 2? I should have just done the moss turn in.
Decreasing Fame?
# Apr 10 2006 at 11:38 AM Rating: Decent
I have done this quest more times than I have killed a Mandragora....Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration. But, I have taken my fame almost to Hero status with this, and I have noticed that after my long stint in Jeuno, I can no longer get the airship quests from the other nations Airship Travel Agency. You know the one, take the wallet, and find the missing passenger. I have also been denied other quests that have minimal fame requirements, and my fame used to be very high in all nations but San D'Oria.

Can anyone confirm that this Quest reduces fame in other nations?
insanely easy

First time I ever did it, I got the quest at 18:05, and finished at 19:21. I'm going for a new record next time. :P Though I imagine a 73+ BRD or a 25+ THF would kick my butt.

All the lamps are on the right side of the walkway through lower jeuno as you head towards rolanberry. Don't forget that before you go down the stairway, there is a lamp past the stairs on the ledge. There's another one behind you as you come back up the stairs again on the ledge behind you.

EDIT: Did it again, finished 19:12. >:D

EDIT: Started facing the first streetlamp and targeting Zauko. Made tons of mistakes but did a few things better, such as quicken the start of the quest. 19:07. Next time I do this quest, I think I can do sub-19... so long as the damn 2nd streetlamp isn't surrounded by people. >_> Speed runs are fun! XD

EDIT: I've done this 5-6 times now (I'm losing track), and on my best run yet where I think I did everything really well, I only managed 19:02. That IS under an hour as the quest starts at 18:05, but still not finishing before 19:00. Pretty much the only main factor now is lag from having so many people crowd the Jeuno AH.

If you do the quest more than once you can get the key item that tells you when he needs help. It's cheap Jeuno fame, but there's certainly better ways to get your Jeuno fame up. :P

With the last big update, you don't have to wait for 21:00 to come around to start lighting the lamps. You can actually start after you get the quest open.

Alright, I've done this quest a couple times, but an LS member does it at every chance he gets. He loves announcing it in the LS. Lol.

You can obtain the quest just after 18:00 by talking to Zauko, but you can't start lighting lamps til 21:00.

Now I'm laughing my @ss off because my buddy has done it so many times that Zauko has actually given him a key item that informs you when the lights need lit. Lol! I'm guessing you hafta do the quest a certain number of times before he gives you this.

Anyone know how to get the new key item that informs you if he needs a helper for this quest?
...I assume its simple but I can't update yet so I don't know... >.<
RE: torch
# Oct 27 2005 at 12:20 AM Rating: Decent
Just do the quest twice and Zauko offers to give you the key item. It is called "Lamp Lighter's membership card".

Also I will confirm after the update you do not have to wait until 2100 to start lighting lamps. You can do it after he gives it to you.

I can second that the exact starting time is at 18:05 :) I tried it at 18:00, nothing... 18:03, nothing... 18:05, "Darkness falls soon, bla bla bla"

Exact Time
# Sep 08 2004 at 4:03 AM Rating: Excellent
Done with quest about 10 times now whilst waiting for party in Jeuno..

The Exact starting time is passed 18:05 and if someone else gets it. It wont activate.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 19 2004 at 12:05 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i think this quest was removed in a recent patch as now an NPC walks around lighting all the streetlights

I was wondering around wasting time to get my Choco (Chicken) license when I happen to talk to Zauko. It was about 20:30 and he gave me the quest. The lamps are all right there, go to them and click on them. An option pops up and you activate them. Anyways, I lit them all except one which happened to be right next to Zauko. Did it all in about 1:10 game time. Spoke to Zauko (22:10) Quest complete and he said I gained experience. What does mean exp for leveling or exp for ranking? I figured for ranking. I am gonna repeat it to see if I can do it faster. Oh yes, I did get my Chicken License, bonfide Bronco Chicken Rider...hmmm that should be my title...

Well, I've done this quest twice now. The third time though, when I started lighting the torches, my stupic computer desides to disconnect... I quickly reconnect, light another torch, and then BOOM! Computer disconnects again! By this time I am swearring... I get back on, to see I have about 30 mins game time to light the last 6 torches(man I wish i had flee). So I start rushing, then it hits 1:00 JUST as I target the last torch and go to push enter, too late... /cry

Okay, here's the deal. By at least 16:00 you should be able to snag this quest if no one else has. You can't start LIGHTING the lamps til 9 o'clock (that's 21:00 in game-time). You have plenty of time (until 1:00, or 4 game hours) to run thru Lower Jeuno sticking to the right-hand wall and lighting all 12 lamps. So you have to wait around a bit from 16:00-21:00 because it isn't dark enough yet to light the lamps. If you get the quest, just stand in front of that first one by Zauko and start clicking on it around 21:00. Then run down, light 'em all, and talk to him again.

Interesting note: the first time I did this quest, I DIDN'T get the Torchbearer title. I still had my "Pickpocket Pincher" title from the last quest I'd done, which was in San D'oria. The second time I did the quest, I did get the "Torchbearer" title. Very strange.
RE: :(
# May 14 2004 at 2:17 AM Rating: Decent
nope, from 18:00 you can get the quest, and then indeed you cant light the streetlights till 21:00

If you forget to light the streetlights (i forgot it at least 4 times after getting the quest lol) he'll tell you he's disappointed in you the next time you talk to him.

Dunno if that last part affects your fame or not :(
