If you want to befriend the infamous Cat Burglar, then you'll have to give her something she likes.

Tenshodo rep didn't take nearly as long as I thought!
# Mar 03 2012 at 7:29 AM Rating: Decent
I just finished getting to level 4 tenshodo. I went 32 thief/nin with two swords, a warp scroll and otherwise naked, went around one-shotting everything in giddeus until I had 27 necklaces with a 28th in the queue (dropped all other loot.) Use the scroll (28th drops into inventory,) turn them in, lather rinse repeat. Was also grabbing them off the auction house as they appeared so I was turning in about 32 or 36 per trip. Took about 4 hours total. Thought 212 necklaces would take much longer!

Now on to Norg, I wants me Utsusemi!

I am a level 70 Thief.
I just completed the Thief AF Quest for Rogue's Bonnet. I received the bonnet and the quest is complete.
I am Bastokian, so I am definitely not on Windurst Mission 2-1.
I spoke with Nanaa Mihgo and her stoopid friend Cha Lebagta and then Nanaa Mihgo again.
What gives? Can anybody shed some light on the subject? I'm sitting on seriously about 100 Yag Necklaces here and I can't really move on with my life until I do something with them and I sure as shyters ain't gonna NPC them or Auction them off after all that hard working farming them! Any advice would help. :)

Time to do some fame upping!

Do the NIN and/or SAM quests give some Tenshodo fame to reduce the number of Bead Necklaces I need to farm?? Even a little extra helps... o.O
don't fight yourself

while there are differing numbers for the requirement of yagudo necklaces to acheive fame rank 4 for ninja scrolls. realize this, you must first build up fame in other areas. jueno particularly. why? many people try to raise their fame in each country at the same time. if you do the selbina quest "only the best" and trade Boyahda moss it will raise jeuno bastok and sandy fame but Lower norg fame. so be careful you may be raising and lowering your norg fame and working against yourself. i don't know if any norg quest will alter the other cities fame.

Well, about a year ago I did this quest to get the solo battle of leviathan, which I need level 2 fame, I traded in 56 necklaces, and I got level 2 fame. I am goin to try to get level 4 fame, and I am going to see if getting 112 more will get me to level 4 fame.
200 is right
# Sep 18 2007 at 7:44 AM Rating: Default
Just did it on a fresh mule to see how much. No other quests AT ALL, no missions, nothing, just yagudo necklaces. 200. Done. All scrolls and Leviathan fork offered.

i did some necklaces in , but i forgot to count them or how many times i did that quest , so now i need to do it all over AGAIN Counting from 0.

Well what i figured out is that this quest is the MOST BORING SLOWGA Quest EVEER !!!!!!!!!!!!!

and it is frustrating to do it

i did the math and most ppl say 220 or 250

ok 220 is divisible by 4

But 250 is not

So i figure out that it must Be 252 Neclaces = 63 Times this quest should be done ^-^; ALOT >.<

HOPEFULLY i am right and it works cuz i am running out of :

1st-TIME (NIN=11 almost 12)

2nd-Patience (GODDAMIT , i should have counted them all ^^;;;;)

3rd-Money (i got down from 100k that i did in 1 day to having 0 gil ^^;;; ops....)

4th-ppl to help me (Everyone is busy doing something else ;-;)

5th-I didn't sleep to do this quest and SO FAR I got 8 necklaces turn in and 14 Necklaces on my WAR32/NIN11

14/35 slots in my bag

it will be a long BORING QUEST >.<

Luckyly i have my wife and Friends to talk to

Wish me luck

And after it i will need to go to NORG with someone to grab the UTSUMI : ICHI QUEST (IT IS A HARD ONE IMO) do it (hopefully someone will help me ) and get it

Then i think i need to do another quest for those TOOL BAGS >.< TOO MUCH ><


And it is 4:36 in the morning ATM , i will go to sleep , and eat a Sandwish ^_^



I HATE THIS QUEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


stupid quest
# Aug 25 2007 at 8:50 AM Rating: Decent
this is stupid. this cant simply isnt as simple as it says it is.

i talked to nanaa and she gave me some letter to take to the tenshodo. so i did that, and came back and she says "see u in jeuno". i talked to her henchman, all she says is something useless about jeuno. there is no quest flagged and noone asks me for necklaces.

i am a tenshodo member and i have been to aht urghan. ive spoken to everyone i know that has done this quest and noone can tell me why i cant trade my necklaces.

any ideas?
stupid quest
# Aug 25 2007 at 6:47 PM Rating: Decent
to answer my own question, i had flagged the THF AF1 armor quest without realising. The Letter from the Tenshodo that nanaa gave me is a key item that i can't find on this site.

So if you have the same problem as me, you have to do the THF AF1 armor quest before you can trade your necklaces. You will only flag this quest if u talk to nanaa while a THF40+ (i believe - you certainly wont flag it as any other job), so watch out if u go farming your necklaces with a higher level thief.

Once you have done AF1 (reward is Marauder's knife - a nice DEX+/AGI+ dagger), you will be able to trade your necklaces again.

Hope this clears up questions about this, i have seen earlier posts asking the same question but with no response, so yeah. thats it.

Rice Balls...
# Aug 22 2007 at 11:04 AM Rating: Decent
I know this has been stated on threads related to Norg fame a buzillion times, but for people new to raising Norg fame: NO SPECIFIC RICE BALL PRICE IS A GAUGE FOR YOUR NORG FAME! All NPC prices are influenced by fame AND CHARISMA. So your rice ball price at Norg fame 4 for a level 10 galka warrior is going to be vastly different from say, a level 60 hume bard with the same amount of Norg fame.

My advice, if you're going for utsusemi, is this: Be patient, do your 180 necklaces, the zinc ore quest a couple times, do the lower-fame-required nin scroll quests(tonko, kurayami, etc...) and you should be fine.

Seriously, why would you bother going to jeuno to check your norg fame anyway if you're doing necklaces. That takes you halfway to norg anyway, and if you're still low on fame you have to turn around and go back to windy anyway. Just spend that wasted time farming more beads/zinc ore. You can never have too much fame.
finally norg fame 4
# Jul 27 2007 at 1:51 PM Rating: Decent
ok people. I finally finished this quest and got norg fame 4. The tables I see everywhere are dead wrong. It took me 220 necklaces to get my riceball price down to 152. I checked in norg when my price was 154 and I still had fame 3. So once your price is 152 you have norg fame 4. (Unsure about 153)
norg fame
# Jul 26 2007 at 1:20 PM Rating: Decent
ok i just did another run of 16 necklaces and checked my riceball price in jeuno, it was 160. According to everything i've read online 160 is the start of norg fame 4, so i went to norg to start the utsusemi quest and checked my fame just to be sure i was lvl 4. Apparently I was still only fame 3 and couldnt get the quest. So just to warn you all, those prices, in related to your norg fame, probably aren't right
yag necklaces
# Jul 26 2007 at 10:24 AM Rating: Decent
OK just started this quest today, and I've turned in 80 necklaces. The riceball price is 161. That means im 1 gil away from getting fame 4. So either I'm somehow lucky and it won't take me 200+ necklaces, or it takes alot more necklaces to get a higher fame.

...if that makes any sense.

Trouble with Nanaa Mihgo
# Oct 15 2006 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent
This is a huge load of crap! I talked to nanaa mihgo, and she keeps telling me to "Go to Jeuno Tenshodo headquarters".

I've been told I don't have to, and that everyone in my LS was never told to do this, and also that I DON'T need a tenshodo invite. And when I try to trade her four yagudo necklaces, NOTHING HAPPENS. Also, after talking to the two mithrans next to her, the two other crime-kitties, she STILL won't accept my necklaces, and says the same thing every time. I want to BEAT THE **** OUT OF HER

# Sep 15 2006 at 11:40 AM Rating: Decent
Read this thread and was very scared by people going on about how it takes far more that 200 necklaces. Well i kept an exact record of what i did:

Zinc ore quest in Bastok twice
Exactly 200 Yagudo Bead necklaces in Windurst
Ninja flag quest

These are the only things i did and it was enough to reduce the price of Riceballs in Neptune's Spire to 155gil (ie Tenshodo Fame 4).
It was enough fame to do all four ninja scroll quests (including Utsusemi of course) and receive the tuning fork of water.

My advice, do as many gobbiebag quests as you can, pick a high level melee job with thf sub and get to work! It took me about 6 hours to get the fame so it isnt as bad as some people make out!
Norg Fame
# Aug 07 2006 at 6:08 AM Rating: Decent
I want to make it VERY clear that it takes FAR more than 200 necklaces to achieve enough norg fame for Utsusemei: Ichi. I farmed them over a year ago, and it took WELL over 400, now, I'm helping my gf farm them and am keeping an EXACT track of them, and the price of rice balls at neptunes spire to see where it stands. As of right now, she has turned in EXACTLY 224, and rice balls are STILL 161gil each! thats WAY off from the goal still, so this will EASILY take more than 400 necklaces. I dont know if something has been changed on the game for calculating fame for norg, but if it has, it has been in effect for a very logn time, since I came up with the same numbers over a year ago. Anyway, I want to say, those of you who say 200 ARE COMPLETELY FULL OF BS, and are going off of hear-say! Go help a friend, and keep count, and you will see EXACTLY what I'm talking about. As for how to attain this RIDICULOUSLY long goal, I suggest havign your inv maxed out (60 slots) and go with as much pace open as possible, bring a friend, and BOTH sub thf for TRH, and you will accomplish the goal much sooner, but I still say it is RIDICULOUS to get well over 400 of these turned in JUST to OPEN UP the quest. I know some things in a game like this SHOULD be challenging, but THIS IS A GAME, and it's number one priority is to be FUN for the players!!! And hunting 400+ necklaces is NOT fun, it's mindless, boring, and repetitive, and SE should be ashamed of themselves to make building norg fame such a sickening chore!

Very good advice. But it's a little differant for some people, because they might have done other quests, Like the zinc ores in Bastok, beforehand, anf may have a smidgen more fame then people who start fresh.

I've been checking the amount of Necklaces it took for me and a few friends each to do the quest, and it came out to roughly 250's for about 3 of my friends, and I. Sometimes reaching into the 270's for another few friends.

Just a thought, but that's what I found. :)
Norg Fame
# Aug 10 2006 at 7:51 AM Rating: Decent
You sure? I kept track of the numeber I farmed and I did 200 excatly and had the riceballs down to 153 which I believe is Fame 5 according to ffxi.cannotlinkto.

When I did it I had a assistant and we cleared the invent out and most of the Yag population but we did it in a night. Yes it's boring, repetitive but in the end if you plan to use thief it's worth it
# Jul 13 2006 at 7:27 AM Rating: Decent
...Yagudo Piper casts Knights Minne...-mumble- -mumble- Armann obtains a circlet..what -shakes- oh it was just a dream...

still traumatized by farming these as you can see but great way to get Norg fame.
I farmed these for hours and hours as a 59 WHM, subbed blm and set HP in windy, went naked and just with staff. First started rounding them up and AoEing them but that's no good, best way is to attack solo. Also nice to help people with their Giddeus key for their Kahzam quest while your there in exchange for the yag necks.
anyways finally got Leviathan quest so I can get Fenrir and got Tonko and Utsemi quests for some money for Raise II and Reraise II. yep thats my experience, Good luck, also if you turn them in for Norg fame do them 4 at a time.
Lose Fame?

RE: Lose Fame?
# Apr 24 2006 at 7:27 PM Rating: Decent
No i personally did this quest to get around lvl 2 or 3 fame so i could go solo Leviathan at 20 capped smn fight so no you dont lose fame i started with 0 when i did it dont ask about how many necklaces it took just for those.... *still has dreams about the damned black birds*

Have fun and good luck just dont let giddeous consume you....

you need 217 necklaces to get the utsusemi scroll easiest and cheapest way to do this is get some friends to help u and go to Giddeus to farm these, you could prolly get the amount u need in about 4 hours or so, but ya its worth it u can either use the scroll or sell it for 1.5mil i think its goin for right now on Seraph then it will also let you get the tuning fork of Water for leviathan but if u hav time farm these necklaces to get it out of the way, its better then buyin them

Hope that helps..
for Scrolls
# Aug 07 2006 at 6:07 AM Rating: Decent
You are COMPLETELY wrong!!! First fo all, 217 isnt even a number divisible by 4, so you cant even turn in that number, so you are full of BS! secondly, we are @224 right now, and the price of rice balls is 161g, NOT EVEN CLOSE to complete... I'm SO sick of this myth of "around 200 necklaces" for geniuses who are too lazy to count, and have someone their ls or friends do it all for them...
RE: for Scrolls
# Mar 29 2006 at 3:33 AM Rating: Excellent
This is probably a stupid question, but, if the necklaces must be turned in 4 at a time, how do you get 217? (forgive me I feel like bein a smartass right now)

200 yagudo necklaces => Scroll of Utsusemi: Ichi.
Utsusemi: Ichi = 1 mil+ (+10k for questing yag necklaces)

Yagudo necklace = 1,000 gil in AH.

1,000 * 200 = 200,000.

1,000,000 > 200,000.

Yeah, I did the math. Painfully obvious that you have no idea what you're doing.

I have found that roughly 200 necklaces will open the utsusemi quest, and should also get you the leviathan quest. I currently have thf AF quest and the rock one open with her and can still turn in yag necklaces for fame (just did so about 5 min ago). Just trade her 4 necklaces and she will give you 200gil and a touch of fame, no need to talk to her before hand. When I talk to her she asks about one of the other quest but will accept yag necklaces if I just trade them to her.

I als assume that the person that said the whole bit about 200x200=40,000 is talking about gil return. Check your math, you get 200gil for 4 necklaces s the return would be 1/4 of what you said. You get 10,000gil off of 200 necklaces rather than 40,000.
RE: Lots of bad info here...
# Dec 16 2005 at 2:08 PM Rating: Good
It takes more than 200. I farmed up 200 necklaces exactly and sent them to my mule. Got Kazham keys and headed down to Norg with oils/powders. I had enough fame to unlock Tonko, Kurayami, and Dokumori, but not Utsusemi. Even after doing those three, still not enough fame.

Well, I'd just assume that your mule didn't have any fame to begin with in windurst (I can't imagine why you'd want to do that on a mule, except to get another utsusemi ichi scroll). 200 yagudo necklaces is the rough estimate for a charater who has done an average amount of quests in windurst already, and probably has some fame.

Sure, to go from nothing to enough fame for Utsusemi isn't 200 necklaces, but nobody ever really starts from 0 when they do this quest.
