In-Game Text


First you need a damp scroll. This can be under the Other -> Miscellaneous section of the Auction House, or can be fished up in Sea Serpent's Grotto. Once you have the scroll, talk to Shivivi, and she will tell you that the scroll is some "new fangled ninjutsu" they made, but it needs dipped in the spring at Horlais Peak to be readable. Head to Horlais Peak and trade te scroll to the ??? in the middle of the spring for your reward: Scroll: Jubaku: Ichi, the level 30 ninjutsu paralyze scroll.

The ???
# Apr 16 2008 at 3:06 PM Rating: Decent
As it says trade the Damp Scroll to the ??? in Horlais Peak, I must submit a correction to that.

I just did this and there is no ??? there, you trade the Damp Scroll to the "Hot Springs".

The reason I bring this up, is that there is a blank spot you can highlight there as well. And thought I'd clear it up for those that are doing this quest in the future.
Once you finish the quest, you can't fish the scroll up agai

After extensive testing, I'm almost completely certain that it is IMPOSSIBLE to re-fish this scroll up on a character that's already finished the quest. I spent about 25 frustrating minutes wrestling with pantalm kelp, cobalt jellyfish, and "1 gil" catches on my main.

Exasperated, I handed my fishing gear to my mule (who I was really doing the quest for), cast "Sneak" on her, and let her try. She caught the damn thing on her cast.

Reviewing the comments below (almost everyone that hasn't done the quest gets it within 2 - 8 casts, while people that HAVE done it never see the thing again), I believe the conclusion is a safe one.

Soooo ... don't buy the scroll, nor the finished product. It's easy to fish up ... so long as your character hasn't done the quest.

Hmm after trading the scroll to the spring. I talked to the "Hot Springs" again and received water for Curilla's Bottle. After reading the description of the key item, it belongs to General Curilla. Anyone know what this is for?

in the Chateau in Sandoria, she must have given you the bottle, you just dont remember, tall elvaan, red hair covering one eye, white armour, one of the rooms (cant remember if its right or left of the entrance).

Just a note - there are two Horlais Peaks zones - one for the BCNM and one for this quest (and something else...)

The one you want for this quest is SOUTH...

musta missed that somewhere.

Heres an easy guide to obtain the scroll. Chances are that if youve allready gotten other scrolls you have the fame required to do this one. But just incase, you need
1. Fame lvl 4.
2. You must have A damp scroll (otherwise that dumbass shivivi wont tell you anything other than,how ninjas are cool). In my server there was no Damp Scrolls available in any AH. So I went and fished it. Willow Fishing Rod + LittleWorms. Fishing skill 0.
"You have a bad feeling about this one. Michimeow caught a damp scroll!" - First try in J-12 of Sea Serpent Grotto. Monsters there Con EP to a 52.
3. Talk to shivivi with the scroll in your inventory, and he'll tell you some long story.
4. Go to Horlais Peak and trade to a ??? (For those who dont know, heres the path. Sandoria > West Ronfaure > Ghelsba Outpost > Yuhgott Grotto > Horlais Peak. )
5. And once you trade it should turn to your scroll of Jubaku! congratulations on following my 5 step guide. Rate up if it helped!

I decided to do this scroll for my ninja since it was 750k on our server.

Job: 52Rdm/Blm
Gear: Full fishing gear, SH fishing rod, Little worms for bait.
Fishing Skill: 11

Upon entering the Sea serpent grotto you can take every left until you come into a room with a small pond (J-12). I used sneak since everything conned EP+ to me.

I left my Home point in jeuno. Since it was silly to set my HP anywhere else as I was going to do the same amount of running or airship riding regardless of where my HP was.

First cast: Something caught the hook! You're fairly sure you don't have enough skill to reel this one in.

I reel it in: Allula caught a Damp Scroll!

Warped to jeuno caught the next ship to kazham. I then logged off since I have to go to work now.

The rest of this quest is extremely easy. Talk to Shivivi Warp back to Jeuno. Catch the airship out to Sandy. Run to the hotsprings and get the scroll of Jubaku: Ichi.

I'll even be doing this quest 3 more times for mules in order to help get the price of this scroll down from 750k to 500k. Inflation sucks!

unless you already have lures to use buy lugworms off of the taru in norg, the same one that sells earth spirit pact. i got my damp scroll on the 5th catch, alot cheaper than losing lures!
easy as pie

well i did all my "ichi" nin scrolls, (besides utsusemi and tonko), in one day and just had my HP in Norg. So when i did this one i bought the damp scroll in jeuno for 20k and warped back then started quest. Grabbed choco, took the 2 airships, choco'ed again, and just ran the rest of the way and was set. Total time wasn't even a half hour. Pretty simple. Enjoy fellow adventurers, may the path of the NIN lead you to many victorious battles. 8D

Dont buy Shrimp Lures
# Sep 30 2005 at 11:08 PM Rating: Decent
I spent well over 40k trying to fish one of these up (fishing skill 0) and I eventually met a very kind JP player who sold me one she caught for 10k.

Lost 3 Shrimp lures in the process though -.-;;

180k for Jubaku: Ichi in jeuno AH on Garuda. Took me all of 3 tries to get it. First try i lost to whatever got my line. Second try i fished up a pug, cake walk. Third try i get the scroll. To sell or not to sell...... well i guess i really can't if I plan on subbing Nin to my War. like i said before, 180k on Garuda, but there's never any in stock. If i sell i culd make my own price.......

After days of looking in the AH for a damp scroll and finding nothing, I took it as a signal to break down and get a Composite Rod and 2 Shrimp Lures (one broke while fishing in Norg). After helping a WHM find the right door to complete the Utsusemi: Ichi quest, I decided to go to the lake under the bridge and fish.

After 4 tries and some harrowing moments trying to keep Sneak on (why does this spell break down when you need it most?), I finally got the Damp Scroll and Warped back to Norg before the Sahagins got any ideas of how to make Elvaan fish food.

Now it's off to the safer confines of Horlais' Peak.

I've done this quest on my main already and sold it like a fool. Now that i'm starting ninja, i decided to redo all the ninja scroll quests on my mule. My question is: Can i start this quest on my mule, send the scroll to my main to trade to the ??? in Horlais Peak, send the scroll back to my mule and finish the quest? Or do i need to drag my mule all the way back to Horlais Peak to trade the scroll then make my way back to Norg to finish the quest? Thnx in advance for any help ^^

no, it has to be on the person who triggered the quest.

The damp scroll doesn't change when you activate the quest. It's just required to be in your pack when you start it.
