4 hours, 2 drops

Just adding my experience to the mix here...

My friends and I started this quest last weekend then went and spent just over 4 hours on the barge in Carpenter's Landing. We got 2 drops during that time. One was off an Ooze, the other was off a fished up Fishtrap. This is with TH (but no TH2).

Oozes only spawn at night. The one or two other mobs that spawned on each barge trip never dropped - pugils, crabs, normal flytraps.

Oozes only spawn at night.

They spawn during the day too. Just fought one at 11:20 on Firesday. (getting this drop is annoying)
Easy Drop

This quest makes me want to break things. >< Off and on, when I have nothing better to do, I go and ride the barge for an hour or two at a time, and I have yet to get the piece of wood. In probably 6+ hours of nothing but barge riding as 75 RDM/THF, killing everything that spawns, I think I've gotten a total of one or two flytrap leaves.
What is it for? Ah yes...

I got Garhada Teak Lumber from a Fishing trap (the first one)I caught while fishing. Was the first time ever I've been on that place. Didn't know what to do with it but luckily didn't throw it away either. Nice to see that it is a kinda of rewarding item.

Oh yeah, was a 32 RDM / 16 BLM when I found it. Had a little trouble killing the fishing trap but in the end it I killed it.

Another oh yeah, I caught the fishtrap with a composite rod and a sabiki rig.
Hard drop : X

1 Kill, 1 Drop. No thf sub.
TH Works

Don't waste your time on this quest unless you have at least Treasure Hunter 1 for a level 15 Thief. I tried this with my 43SAM/WAR and went back and forth on three seperate rides on the barge. No drops.

Only Mobs on the Barge drop Garhada Teak Lumber. Don't waste your time fighting pugils in Capeneter's landing.

I changed my SUB to THF, which is level 25. First Ooze on the Barge, killed it, lumber dropped.

That simple.

My friend Palidin 43PLD/21WAR tried doing this quest and he faught a pugil in Carpenters landing and it dropped. So I spent two hours in same area killing everything with no drop. So you really should try with a THF. Gonna try again sometime with my THF friend.

I got mine on the Barge ride from the South Landing to the Central Landing. You get to the South Landing from the Eastern Entrance to Carpenter's Landing from Jugner Forest. I killed a Greater Pugil for it.

This was kind of a pain, since I had to ride the barge a few times and every time it dropped me off at the Central Landing, I had to run back to the South Landing.

Having trouble with this.

I can't get any Teak to drop. I've killed things on the barge, near the Sandy zone, and on the Central Landing. (And man does it suck having to wait a half-hour if you miss a barge...)
What drops the lumber? I've made a fortune off of tiger fangs, stealing silver beastcoins, etc, but no Teak.

Really frustrating... -.-

I'm subbing THF, but either TH hasn't helped or I'm just incredibly unlucky. Both times on the barge I was the only one on it, and I killed everything that popped up, but no avail.

Any suggestions?

Had it drop today off a jelly on the barge going from South to Central. Was just me 54RDM/BLM and my friend a 41SAM/THF.

Somehow I doubt it is repeatable as you can then do the Hyper Active quest (providing you have enough fame I would guess).
hmmm airship quests...

Thats strange, a bunch of quests revolving around airship building. I'm not saying that we get to buy and pilot our own airships (although a linkshell owned airliner would be teh pwnxer) maybe whatever storyline promathia has is going to revolve more around airships and the likes.

Naming the airship after completing that quest just makes it appear on the airship you see in the intro cutscene to Chapter 5 CoP mission. ^.~

Well after the altimiter u get the naming quest and when you get the cutscene at the start of prominthia chapter5, if you have done this quest it will have the name you gave it on it in the cutscene kinda cool and geeky all at the same time^^

Reward is 2100, but no title....

However, zone out and come back and you will get another quest entitled Hyper Active. You are required to head to Delkfurts Tower and locate an adventurer sent by Cid to 'obtain' a Hyper Altimeter for the airship. The adventurer was captured going through customs and ordered to defeat a monster called Orna in Delkfurt's Tower.

Raibaht gives you a Molybdenum Box (key item) in which to smuggle the altimeter through Jeuno customs once the adventurer reveals its location to you.
Drops from..?

I found mine fishing at Carpenter's Landing with Insect Paste. I caught a monster called a "Fishtrap", and when I defeated it, the lumber dropped.

Anyone know how/where to get this? I would guess it's either a HQ or key item synth in woodworking... could also be some rare/ex drop but I think it's crafted because he says he needs large ammounts.
In a distant land, sink into the darkness...

It dropped from an ooze that spawned on the barge trip to the central landing. Rare/Ex. I haven't traded it in yet as I didn't know who to trade it to, but I'll head to Bastok and see what I get.

Carpenter's Landing ^^^

Well you have to be able to kill the mobs and they are high-teens to mid-20s, so I'd recommend a 30 at least so you don't die, a piece of rare/ex lumber isn't worth dying over, especially if it's just for a quest. I'm doing this as 50RNG and haven't had it drop yet, but all the mobs are one-shot bow kills for me. RNG f0r t3h w1n. :oP

Edited: I'm now RNG64 and it's 21 Feb 2007 and I finally got this >.< So many tries.

just got the lumber. took me 7 barge rides, and got it off a pugil on the barge at the beginning of the trip. i also fished at each stop for at least 2 hrs with no success on different days (real days). took me roughly 7 hrs to finish this quest.
