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.

Chocobo Quest, prerequisite?

Considering what is said at the end of the chocobo quest and the way this quest plays itself out, it makes me strongly suspect that the Chocobo's Wounds quest is a prerequisite for this.

The way to be certain is if someone tries this quest before they do Chocobo's Wounds, but that never seems to happen during the natural course of things for some odd reason...

Would anyone care to test this?

EDIT: Changed entire post because the way I worded it last time sounded really dumb.

i walked up to that location using a level 1 red mage job :) i started up during nighttime and finished 5 minutes later

when u stand right on TOP of the krakens cave, u can allready select him AND the flowers
so select te flowers and take a walk down the path while keeping the flowers selected, then stop at the corner, coordinate where your target is :P and take a run for it lol,
keep pushing enter as u walk to the flowers, and once the cutscene starts, ur safe to finish the quest and as soon as its done, you get a free ride home :)

tried and tested by 2 people from my linkshell, is no problem at all to do :)
Before you get the quest ?

Contrary to popular belief, you don't actually get the night flowers that Dietmund requests from you. >.< The chocobo he had once mistreated digs it up for him.

**When I approached the area, the Kraken was NOT there. Back in older days, I remember seeing beastmasters taming the Kraken. ^^ I think it's becoming a popular fad. ***
Not too bad..

Just did this fairly easily. After running to the spot where the Kraken was, I waited till 22:00 then popped a silent oil and walked right up to the flowers. Kraken didnt even look at me - when I was done I attacked the Kraken for a quick ride home.

would i be able to do this if i got the quest at level 30 died and went to level 29, would i still be able to complete it?
RE: 30-29
# Feb 21 2004 at 7:07 PM Rating: Decent
yes, if you accepted the quest you could finish it, whether your lvl 30 or lvl 1 (a lvl 1 thf can use perfect dodge and grab the flowers easily ^^ )

i was so lucky when i did this quest. it only took me a couple of minutes to do. there was a PLD in AF at the top of the path fishing. He just proceded to go down and kill the Kraken for me. how lucky am i?! in Phoenix you could always find a high level JP player fishing at Qufim.
RE: lucky
# Apr 14 2004 at 3:59 PM Rating: Decent
I think that applies to most Worlds however. It seems there are always high lvl players in qufim fishing, when i went to go do bst, there was a lvl 75 ranger fishing. Kraken poped he said "Watch this" and bang. i dont think i've ever seen anyone do so much dmg in one shot.
Kraken, blah

Lvl 44 GLK Drk/THF, kraken=easy prey...heh, yeah right. Started off with Abs-Vit. Came down to the wire. SoulEater+BloodWeapon helped alot midway through battle. Be very careful if you plan to take this guy alone.

The flowers started glowing for me at about 21:50-21:55. I ran up and proceeded to get my *** kicked by the Kracken. Ding! The Kracken wins round one! Came back and arrived at about 3:00 and the folowers were still glowing, this time I got the cutscene, and after it was over at 4:00-4:15 and I was laying dead beside them, they were still glowing. Ah, they just stopped glowing as I was typing lol. End time is 5:35 ^^

I switched to a level 1 thief to do this quest, but it would seem 2 hour is on the same timer for all your jobs. So when I arrived at the cliff, still had 5 minutes left to go, and it would have taken another day (It was 1:50 am, gametime). With nothing to lose, I crept around the corner until I could target the glowing flowers with tab, and just ran straight at the kracken, spamming enter. Right as it turned and aggroed, I got in range and the cutscene started. Smacked me for about 268 right after the cutscene and sent me on back home with a minimum of fuss.

Mission accomplished, total time, 8 minutes.

Think I showed up at like 1:15 and picked the flowers while sneaked. Sneak didn't even fade. I think I had started this quest some time before by accident just talking to ppl while waiting on my choco.
kraken prob, but ok!
# Jan 21 2004 at 1:58 AM Rating: Default
kraken wasn't there at first so it spawned on me after cut seen, then i got owned, but i suckered that kraken cuz i got the flowers already and took the death express home. some day i'll be using kraken as a pet...someday

This quest has a really nice story line. I'm not sure what the title granted is, but the quest is called Save My Son. When you finish it, you also get and complete Path of the Beast Master after talking to Brutus.

U can ask Dietmund with a lvl that's lower then lvl30 first since he will still complains about the chocobo stable.. but you have to be a lvl 30 or above to talk to the girl at chocobo stable at upper Jeuno otherwise the cutscene wont' start..

As for the flower.. if someone kills for you, it last for a whole game day I think.. since someone killed it for me around 5:00 and I still didn't see that kraken spawn when I got the flower...

As for the flower, it's around 21:45 then u can get it. The way to know is the flower will start to glow.. that means u can get the flower..

then u can go back and finish the quest and get the beast whistle with ur lvl 1 char too.. it does not matter at that time..

So what I did was

Lvl 1 thf talk to dietmund At G-11 in lower jeuno which is above the chocobo stable in that area(accidentally forgot to change)
lvl 32 whm talk to the chocobo stalbe girl at upper jeuno
Lvl 32 whm talk to diemund again
lvl 1 thf get the flower at 21:45
lvl 1 hf talk to dietmund's son and get the quest done :)

Oh yeah.. and its G-11 at lower jeuno.. not D-11

The following is from my experience;

Talk to Dietmund (G-11 Lower Jueno "Merchants House" *above choco stable*) and he will basically shrug you off. Then go to the Choco Stables in Upper Jueno and talk to the *Shannto* (the exact name escapes me, its a little kid in a blue dress directly across from Brutus) You will get a cut-scene which informs you that Dietmund's son is ill, THEN go to Dietmund again and he will ask you for "flowers in Qufim" that "only bloom at night" (flowers bloom from 22:00 untill ??? *if anyone knows the latest time, please post that)

my advice for getting the flowers have been stated, use sneak, and if you dont have it use a thief with perfect dodge/flee (or just Suicide a lvl 1-3 Thief).

hope that helps anyone who may still be confused.

thanks to Sirdonis for pointing out going to the Choco Stables in U.Jueno, no one else seemed to mention it, so I thought Id get it higher on the Comments.

Im ontop of the folower right now wating for night.. at lvl 1WM (since my thf is lvl10 so i dont want to loose xp with thf) So i hope i dont have to talk to anyone else =/

i was frustrated not being able to find Dietmund's house. There's a merchants house with 3 kids inside that give you a quest about some cooking pot.

CLOSER TO THE CHOCOBO STABLE there is a merchant's house up the stairs. this is Dietmund's.

Title given: Animal Trainer

I nabbed the flowers as a lvl 1 THF using perfect dodge. Right after I grabbed them, some high leveled player came along and pulled the kraken out of the area in front of the flowers. I don't know if he killed the kraken or not, since it never returned. It wasn't there the following night either, making it exceptionally easy for my partner and another guy to get the flowers.

What is the Beast Whistle good for? it is for like lvl 24 or something.

Also, I think I read that you should use invisible somewhere... you can't.
help please

I went and clicked on the flowers and died to the kraken... and all it said was "the withered flowers seem unable to bloom".

I have done the part with dietmud and also the cutscene in Ujeuno at the chocobo stables. can anyone help me please if they are familiar with this set of circumstances?

RE: help please
# Dec 26 2003 at 5:50 PM Rating: Decent
