In-Game Text


Laisrean asks you to fetch an item for him in Sea Serpent Grotto. Make sure you have your Silver beastcoin, then enter the Sea Serpent Grotto from Yhutanga Jungle. Take every left you come to. Eventually you will get to an Ornamented Door. That means you're going the right way. Take a left when you get to the door. Continue down this path and take the next left you find. You will arrive at a room with a large puddle and a waterfall. Continue moving straight until you find an unmarked door. Examine this door until you get the message, "You see some silver shavings near the indent on this wall." Trade your silver beastcoin to open the door.

You will be greeted by some pugils when you open the door. Move forward without falling off of any ledges. When you arrive in the room at (H-8), hop off the ledge. Move through this path. You will get to a room identical to the one you just fell from. Keep going forward and you will arrive at the unmarked door to the treasure room. Examine the ??? to recieve the Sea Serpent Statue. Return to Laisrean with the item after the cutscene.

I don't know how many yagudo necklaces I have done but I know I have done 17 zinc ores, tonko and kurayami quest, NIN and SAM flag, riceballs are 155 for me but I still can't get the quest. It's very tough for someone like me (who has ADHD) to concentrate on farming one item over and over again, it's feeling more of a chore now. I am trying to activate the quest on my 37SAM but Laisrean keeps saying the same thing about finding items far and wide or some bullsh*t.

EDIT: Turned in about 28 more necklaces, can do it now

Just to clear a few things up.

It says here min level 1 this is wrong. SE must have changed this to keep RMT from doing this quest on level 1 characters.

I took a mule to level 30 using my anniversary ring just to do this quest.

First of all I had max fame in windy and no fame anywhere else on this mule.

I traded exactly 200 yag necklaces then headed to norg. After doing the rusty armor quests I was able to flag this.

I then changed to a level 1 job and followed the walk through to get to the room with the ???.

What I needed was 7 silent oils to get there and back.

When I returned I tried to finish the quest but all I got was some gibberish from the NPC. After trying 4 times I finally figured it out.

I changed back to the level 30 job and was able to finish the quest.

To sum it up you HAVE to be on something other then a level 1 job to flag this and to finish the quest. I can't say what level is needed but a level 30 can do it now.

Hope this helps

I have 4 fame from the avatar fights I did. The fame was hard to get but it's not anywhere near as hard as you all seem to think... I raised my windy fame first then traded necklaces. I took about 15k.

I'll try to solve the mystery to what fame is needed.
rice balls

My rice balls cost 150 should i be able to get quest?

What I can tell you is this in caps....MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE ON AT LEAST A LEVEL 30 JOB TO GET THIS QUEST. I bound in Norg and have been handing in 32 zinc ore in Bastok then blood porting back and trying for quest. After 144 Zinc Ore, 36 Yagudo Necklaces and Dok/Kur scroll quest I'm at Rank 5 fame, but on a level 1 job (the one I blood ported in on) was unable to get quest. Finally I checked the required fame level and it is Rank 4.


1) Be on your primary job
2) 144 Zink Ore (72,000 Gil) + 36 Yagudo Necklaces (18,000 Gil) + Dokumori (15,000 Gil) and Kurayami (5000 Gil) scroll quests = Rank 5 Fame (110,000 Total)

"Have you ever seen a human heart!? It looks like a fist wraped in blood!"
Finally Got It!

Turned in 40 yag necklaces and 101 zinc ore(first turn in of one ore, plus 25 turn-ins of 4 ore each)and finished the NIN flag quest before I even checked norg fame (aside from once before I started questing for fame)... and this was enough to get me the utsusemi quest :) I started from 0 norg fame and I am absolutely sure of this. I did NOT do any of the other scroll quests
before this one. Not sure if it matters, but I did join tenshodo via Tenshodo Invite before I got the quest. I used 9 silent oils throughout the duration of this quest, not including the initial trip to norg to get the quest in the first place. Thanks a lot for the map which was linked earlier in the thread by Nethesem :) The ONLY reason I got out was because of that map. I would have had to bloodport otherwise, and that would have de-leveled me. SOOOO glad to finally have this done. Thank you all for the very helpful tips, and for the walkthrough^^

This is no doubt one of the easiest quests ever, the only hard part is getting the fame.


First cast sneak on you(Entering form Yuhtunga Jungle), than hug the left wall until you see the silber beastcoin door. Examine it until it says the say exact same over and over.
NOTE: That it barley changes everytime.(posibley by just a ".")

Than you are going to want to hug the left wall the first drop off you see do not drop off of it. Keep going and you will see a drop off to the right, walk off of it. Than hug the right wall droping off no edges going north. enter the room and touch the ??? and you will get a CS.
remember to keep sneak on.

  • Silver Beastcoin
  • is all that is needed.

  • Mythril Beastcoin
  • is not needed.

    I got this quest with 84 Zinc ores, 8 yag necklaces, SAM quest and Tonko: Ichi quest. Rice balls are 155 for me.
    Easy when high level ;)
    # Feb 02 2008 at 6:13 AM Rating: Decent
    Didn't qualify for this when rice balls were 160 ( which I thought was the bottom bracket for level 4 fame), I did two more norg quests, still not enough, so went all the way back to windhurst and handed in another 28 yag necklaces, brining rice balls down to 156. Was then offered the quest.

    Just to clarify, you DO NOT need a mythril beastcoin for this, but I highly recommend having this map (http://www.ffxi-atlas.com/maps/sea_serpent_grotto/general/) to hand, so you can find your way back. Use the one-way A link between maps to go round the Silver door on your return path.

    Take note that you have to click on the unmarked Silver Door repeatedly before it will say 'found traces of silver', and then you can trade the silver beastcoin.

    Also note that contrary to what Laisrean tells you, it's a fair way into the cave, and you will encounter Sea Monks that were EP-- to me as a 65 SAM. That being said, I walked right on through with no aggro.

    Fame Switch
    # Dec 03 2007 at 3:20 AM Rating: Decent
    I believe they did switch it to 6, considering 6 is also the needed fame for the "Tuning fork" to fight Leviathan. Which I just obtained after working my **** off constantly for yagudo necklaces.. never again! x_x
    # Aug 10 2007 at 6:18 PM Rating: Decent
    I don't know why but my fame is only lvl 3 in Norg but the price of my rice ball is at 156, can anybody tell me why?
    # Jul 29 2007 at 1:00 PM Rating: Decent
    By the way pheonix server i did 44 yagudo bead necklaces and 88 zinc ores and i got the utsusemi: ichi quest and tonko: ichi
    # Jul 19 2007 at 7:02 AM Rating: Decent
    Once you get the fame, doing the actual quest is easy. Chainspell posted a nie map/guide link in another thread:


    With this map, I was able to do this quest as a level 1 rdm with silent oils and prism powders. The prism powders were probably unneccessary too, since most, if not all of the mobs, aggro to sound in this area.

    208 Necklaces Not Enough
    # Jun 05 2007 at 3:05 PM Rating: Default
    I kept a count on my new character, 208 Necklaces got me level 3 fame which was not enough for Utsusemi, after trading 10 Rusty Subligar and completing that one quest I now had level 4 fame and enough to do the Utsusemi quest.
    208 Necklaces Not Enough

    O_o ... I did exactly 208 yag on lakshmi server and it was enough. The only quest i had done before is NIN and SAM flag quest

    i've done this quest about 8 times now, i can do it with no map easily, of course my first time was kind of a pain but i got through it.

    I have an account with my g/f's 75blm and i've had about 10 char's on it, then my account with my thf, i always use my thf to farm the necklaces, never tried it the zinc ore route, anyways you need to trade roughly 170-180 necklaces, you start with dokumori, and Kurayami quests which are done by trading 10 rusty legging and 10 rusty subligars which should give you enough fame to do tonko quest, you go to storage room, get box, turn in quest, should be enough for hojo quest, go to jungle, find ???, turn in quest, then jubaku quest will be unlocked, go buy damp scroll, head to horlais, dip in water, turn in quest, then finally utsusemi ichi will be unlocked.

    first 5 or 6 times i did it at really low lvls, i don't remember what lvl, now you need to be lvl 10 i think but i've done it 3 times since update all with lvl 20 just cuz i wanted to use chocobo for hojo ichi.

    I was able to flag this quest at lvl 10. So the cap is either lvl 10, or maybe a lvl below 10. I didnt try to flag it earlier than 10.

    As there are a LOT of posts on this thread, I didn't read them all so I don't know if this has been mentioned ot not. When I got to the Treasure Room for the cut scene, there was a Shahagin with a long name hiding behind some boxes there (as well as one Sea Bonze, but was too weak to my 68 WHM). I tried to click on it, but no matter how close I got, I would keep getting the "Target out of range" message. When I found the ???, the Shahagin was mentioned in the cut scene, so I think it's just part of the quest and doesn't aggro or anything. The Bonze should be avoided as best you can if you're within aggro level, and it's kind of cramped in that room so you have to be careful.

    And contrary to popular belief, raising my norg fame did NOT lower my fame anywhere else. I have hero fame in Bastok, and I checked again after I got level 4 fame in Norg, and it hadn't changed. I believe there is an exception to the rule, though. I read about a smuggling quest that does lower fame elsewhere, but the name escapes me and I hope someone else can chime in and confirm that.
