Rescue two merchants form captivity. They should be somewhere in the Quadav camp in Beadeaux.


Thunder Hawk wants you to rescue two merchants who were kidnapped by Quadavs. They are being held at the jail in Beadeaux. To get into the jail cell, you first need to get a Quadav Charm. This drops from De'Vyu Headhunter.

Once you get the item, take it to the jail door at I-8. This triggers a cut scene. Return to Thunder Hawk with what you learned. He will reward you with 3,000 Gil and a Map of Ranguemont Pass.

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 07 2004 at 6:17 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Salbina's fame is tied to all the quests in the game. i.e. Bastok fame, Windhurst fame, San O'doria fame, add to selbina fame

Selbina & Rabao fame are linked to Bastok and San
They're the average of the two nations.

You are half right... Rabao fame (like the Rabao AH) is linked with Sandy ONLY... Selbina fame, however, is linked with Sandy and Bastok. Bastok fame (and AH) are linked to Norg.

This is not correct. I have lvl 9 fame in Bastok, but only lvl 5 fame in Sandy, yet I have lvl 9 fame in Rabao.

Maybe it's just the higher of the two?

Actually I read somewhere that Selbina and Rabao are tied together for fame.

Selbina Fame = Rabao Fame, the fame is checked in Rabao

Mhuara Fame = Windurst Fame
RE: This much fame

This is partially correct, except that Windhurst fame has nothing to do with Selbina fame.
How much Fame..?

First: get yourself nakid
Second: go to whichever country is in control of Zulkheim (dunes) Fill up entire inventory with la theine cabbage
teleport or outpost warp and get to selbina. trade the cabbage in stacks of 5 to the guy next to the sheep. He's not too far into selbina. Do this probably 15-18 times and you'll have hero fame in sandy bastok rabao selbina, and maybe even jeuno. Only suggestion: do this BEFORE you do tenshodo fame as this will lower tenshodo fame. This is probably the best quest in game just because it adds fame to so many places, and you will lose very little, maybe 1-2k per run total not including prices to warp/choco/etc. good luck!

Dustbucket is correct. Just north of where Dev'Yu Headhunter spawns is a gate. You go through that gate into the "Third" area of Beadeaux (if you have the map, you'll see what I mean). Just north of the gate is a trench. Drop over the lip into that trench and immediately do a 180. Behind you will be the door to the jail.

Extra Info: Make SURE you sneak/silent oil. Quadev's detect by sound, and so to the Big Jaw Pugils that are in that trench. Also, once you are over that lip into the trench, make sure you have a way out (I suggest a level 40 blm pal with warp II, or a scroll of instant warp from conquest points).

according tothe killing ifrit site ( http://www.killingifrit.com/page.php?id=111 ) the jail is at i-8, once square further north, sneak potion/silent oils/sneak spell are obviously a must

in case you didn't already notice the item required is quadav charm, not quadav jufu/bufu

Can anyone explain the location of the prison at I-9? I did some scouting but couldn't find it, and the quadavs there were all tough for me at lvl 43, so i didn't want to risk aggroing them on my pt camping the NM.
I'll go back later with sneak potions, but would like some feedback on the jail loc.

Does "Quadav Bufu" really exist? Killed this guy many times for the Mission 10 quest, and all he's dropped are crystals, Beadaeux Chest Keys, and the Quadav Charms (rare/ex, for Mission)
RE: Item?
# Feb 13 2004 at 2:59 PM Rating: Default
Does the charm get used up when you open the door? I want to get it for mission 10, but does this mean after that, I need to get a second one to do this mission?
RE: Item?
# Jan 30 2004 at 1:24 PM Rating: Decent
if you read the message on the gate of the entrance... it says something like the charm is the key...
RE: Item?

It may not start dropping until after you've talked to the quest guy. Some things need to be activated by the quest before they drop/work.

Anyone know where Thunder Hawk is at? I ran around Selbina but still can't find him.

He is in front of the Mayor's house.

The level requirement is not 45, I got this quest at level 29 or so. You just need enough fame.
RE: Req.
# Dec 16 2003 at 10:45 AM Rating: Default
True, but the level of the NM mob is 45 so I doubt you'd be able to finish this quest untill aprox level 45
RE: Req.
# Sep 29 2004 at 5:47 AM Rating: Good
Soloing an NM thats the same level as you is impossible. COnsider this: a Level 45 is Even Match to a Level 45 character, and Even Matches are NOT soloable unless a RDM or BST. an NM's are much tougher and stronger than their level, so it makes him even tougher than a 45.
RE: Req.

I've soloed this guy twice as a level 45 thf/nin. With Utsusemi: Ichi and Bloody Bolts I didn't even use any food/drink or my 2-hour. I can solo most EM mobs if I don't link and keep the fight 1 on 1. I can even solo some T mobs. You just have to know what you're doing.

Show me a RDM that can solo and EM past level 30, and I'll quit this game... I've never been able to solo an EM after level 10... just cuz you can cure, doesn't make up for the extreme lack of damage you do. I think a RNG could solo and EM... so maybe you just made a spelling error.
RE: Req.

My brother is a 35 whm and he can solo decents or even matches if he's careful. He has his divine magic healing enfeebling and club skills capped. Really you can solo with every job as long as you know what your doing and don't neglect your skills. The only reason people don't solo with whm is they lose all offensive capabilities in their party by only curing and resting during battle.

I am a level 67 Rdm on the Cerberus server, and I have no problems soloing easy prey, decent challenge, or even match mobs. Tough mobs are difficult though, but I can usually manage it if I'm careful. I sub Whm, and I have fairly decent gear, including the Wize Wizard's Anelace. It's not too hard to solo if I keep myself buffed, it just takes a while

I have seen RDMs 41+ solo T and VT, you are correct in saying that a lvl 10 till lvl 30 RDM have problems surviving soloing EM, but they are talking about a lvl 45 mob so a lvl 45 RDM with capped sword should con EM to, at lvl 33 u get phalanx, at 34 u get stoneskin. So at 34 a RDM with blink, stoneskin, phalanx, aquaviel+ the right enspell should be able to solo EM again. and at lvl 41 with Refresh and Convert Ive seen friends solo VT(Extremly slow I might Add)
RE: Req.
# Jul 03 2005 at 3:47 AM Rating: Decent
Even slower than Rdm but just as effective Blm are also awsome soloers.

With capped Enfeebling magic and a dark staff, Blm can: bind, nuke, sleep, rest, untill the end of time and take down IT. Though typicly for safty and sanaty I dont do anything stronger than tough.

Yeah the mobs in this game are hard but if you got skill the following jobs in my experience are awsome solo artists, Blm Rdm Smn Bst Nin. Also De'vyu Headhunter is a chump id say maybe = to a lv 40 mob non NM by how hard he was hitting my taru self.

Yeah, I got it at level 21 here. But I won't be completing this quest anytime soon. =]
