Dietmund is at G-11, in the house right above the chocobo stables. He will come out when you open the merchant's door and ask you to bring him some night flowers. Then go to the the Upper Jeuno Chocobo Stables and talk to Shallot.

To get the flowers, you need to go to Qufim Isle and look for a path down the cliff at location F-8 (you can't get flower while invis). Wait for nightfall (22:00) and then walk down the path and look for the glowing nightflowers. The flowers is guarded by a Kraken; no worries, have Sneak casted on yourself or use a Silent Oil and you will be perfectly safe. Click on the flower and it will trigger a cut scene. After the cutscene, go talk to the sick kid at his house, then go talk to Brutus at the Chocobo house in Upper Jeuno and you will be flagged to be able to change jobs to Beastmaster. If you go back to where you first spoke to Dietmund, his now healthy son will give you a Beast Whistle and 2100 gil. After you receive the money and whistle you may go to Brutus (Upper Jeuno, G-7 at the Chocobo Stables) and speak to him.

The story of this quest follows on from the Chocobo quest so I think it is a prerequisite that you have finished it.

I just did this quest as 48WHM/24BLM. I put sneak on and went and sat happily under the Kraken, it was Easy Prey to me. It didn't aggro and at 22:00 the flowers glowed, got the cut scene and no problems whatsoever! :)
no quest trigger

so im waiting out of sight from the kraken, ready to throw on some silent oil and dash into the flowers, when a higher lvl(54ish i think) rdm comes down, aslo doing the quest, asks if i mind if she killed it. she buffs up, and attacks it. i dont think it took any damage from her, and it sure missed alot. it did do a rather nasty AOE attack tht got me killed(i went down as a lvl2 rdm to avoid losing exp from anything dumb happening). so it may not be the best idea to go as a lvl one job, just buy some silent oil(or craft it, it makes a tidy little profitt).

Has anyone tried binding Kraken?? Lvl 38 blm, so if bind takes should be simple, just bind and warp. Cake.
easy quest (if you have high level)

I walked in with my lvl 50 thief and walked out. No aggro from the beast at all

Now you might now have a high level to do the quest, but if you do and you want to unlock a quest this is one of the easiest ones

Just remember to visit at night, and maybe kill some ghosts to help out those poor Qufim tourists ;)
Its really easy trust me!!

Umm... Krakens (like all Sea Monk-type mobs) detect by sound, so running up when it has its back turned is not gonna help any. :P

well..see, his point isn't that the kraken wont see you, but that the krakenw ill see you but you'll be in a cutscene.

He'll kill you when you finish your movie, but what do you care? You're level 1, lose no EXP, adn will pop back in Jeuno where you need to be to finish up.

and, nice icon, lol =P

You get 2 titles from this 2 part quest.
First part is done when you go back and talk to the kid and get your reward(Whistle+Gil) and the title "Life Saver".
Second part is when you talk to Brutus and get BST and the "Animal Trainer" title.

Check the edge of f8 along the coast that faces out to the sea.. there is a path there that goes down to a cave... and if i can find it anyone can. If your a whm just sneak/invis and what not down there.. after 22:00 hrs and click on the flowers.

Lvl 1 bst was the most fun first lvl in the history of the game! Oooh that mandy I charmed, the fun we had. Played tag, ran in circles, hide and go seek, he had short legs so sometimes i lost him, but then i'd see him coming on the horizon... it's so sweet to have a devoted pet, keeps you from being lonely!!!

I took a pic of my first little pet and meeeeeee


IT WAS SO FUN!!!! I really want a beetle pet, but a mandy is pretty hilarious.

ps thanks to Cpt****** who slayed the cave beast for me and everyone else who came there, crying and trembling in fear

/cheer !!!

I was waiting to go down and run past kraken when a lvl 55 bard offered to kill kraken for me. I gladly excepted :). So he invites me to his pt and we kill it together. After its dead i touch the flowers, get scene and finish quest.
Just Run

Dont make this any harder than it is im a lvl 30 war i just walked down there no oil sneak or anything. The kraken is so slow once he aggro u just run. I went down there pretty much walked through the kraken he hits me once then i hit flowers and cutscene started then after cutscene i just ran 15 seconds later he was eating my dirt and to far away to hit me.

Well, you really should stay at Qufin and stick with it until level 25, as I always see it as being bad to rush.

However, if you are really disliking Qufin you can try the Kazham Jungles, however, I'm going to assume you don't have the keys yet and those can be a pain in the *** to find.

I should warn you though, the Jungles are certainly no more better than Qufin as you will be seeing trained Goblin Smithys in your nightmares.

Man, this quest was a litle hairy for me. I did this as a lvl 30 WAR/NIN with full cnt. armor on. I went down to the cave, kraken was there, hit defender, got the cut seen really quick, then ran all the way back to jeuno with a kraken on my tail. I picked up a banshe and a wight running back, and i barely made it with 96 HP left

The Exact Time To Touch The Flower
# Sep 10 2004 at 2:05 PM Rating: Decent
Guys this is real simple, not sure if anyone posted the exact time, but make sure you go to touch the flower at exactly 22:00 on out till whatever daytime is, anything before 22:00 and it hasn't fully bloomed yet. Cave isn't huge to enter, it's about the exact size of the kraken itself. So, sneak or silent oil, walk in just a little at 22:00 on out, grab that flower, get the cutscene, run out...hard part is over.

There were about 8 of us from my LS that did this all at once. Several people were not getting the cutscene. This may sound REALLY pathetic, but be sure you are IN RANGE!!!!

I had to be nearly standing on top of the flower to start the cutscene. Nobody was getting a "target out of range" message either.

Just one of those goofy things ;)

This is the easiest quest I have done so far. Just used sneak with my 30 RDM and got the flower and headed back to Jueno. I think the whole quest from start to finish took maybe 10 minutes (I started the quest @ 2145 Van'diel time).
