The Gift - How To Flag
# Aug 30 2007 at 9:41 AM Rating: Decent
I can confirm that The Sand Charm (http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/quests.html?fquest=234) is required to flag this quest (The Gift).

I am a fisherman on a new character, and wanted access to Zaldon gutting my fish. Therefore I started this quest line, having done no other Selbina or Mhaura quests. I could not get The Gift, so I followed the advice below and went to Mhaura to do The Sand Charm. Upon completing it, The Gift and subsequently The Real Gift were accessible.

I've never done the Rycharde quests in Mhaura and I flagged this still.

Edit: I had the Sand Charm done beforehand so I can't say if you do/don't need it. ><

I believe Jeolt is correct. I had completed the Under the Sea quest and tried for over a week to get this one. As soon as I had accepted the Sand Charm quest Oswald gave me this quest. Assuming I need to complete the Sand Charm quest now to get the last Oswald quest.

I am a hero in Selbinia, Juno, and Sandoria. I am at least level six fame in Bastok and Windhurst.

I have done ALL the quests for Richarde and his father. I have done the Fat Greedie Quest for the ring. I have done the second job quest. I have done six of the monument quests for the mayor. I have done the Rolandberry 881 quest for Vuntar. I have done the Romeo five onion weapon quest. I have done Melyon's millioncorn feed quest about 30 times.

Why can't I get this quest?

I've gotten this quest, and I only turned in 15 clay tablets. I have completed all the Rycharde quests, The Rescue, and of course the first Oswald quest; and I got this quest while doing the last Rycharde quest (figured I'd talk to Oswald while I was already in Selbina talking to Valgier).

how the heck do i get this? i did the first one, done 2 of the chefs ones(right now he says he has nothing more for me to do, and turned in 20 stacks of cabbages(thats 48 turn ins total) i don't think my fame is the problem... maybe it is....

i cant figure out what to do!!!!
Can't get this quest!

I've done the "Under the Sea" quest, yet he just tells me that he won't be stupid enough to drop the ring again". I've done the first two food quests for Richard in Mhuara, and HE won't give me any more, either. Is there a timer on either of these, like the next ones can't be done within a certain time frame of the first one or two? Thanks in advance!

Do the Rycharde quests in Mhaura.

How do I obtain this quest? I've finished under the sea but he won't give me the second one and I've done the turn in La Theine cabbage quest in Selbina about a hundred times to gain fame there so I don't think that's a problem.
where is he?
# Dec 10 2003 at 4:55 PM Rating: Default
is this the guy hiding behind the shop and above the home point?
RE: where is he?

RE: where is he?

No that's a completely different quest, "Test My Mettle". Oswald is in a room inside the tavern beyond the NPCs selling armor and equip. From the tavern's entrance, make a left into another room to find him. He's wearing a cap. There's also the title changer NPC in there with him.
