Norg fame
# Feb 23 2009 at 11:20 AM Rating: Decent
Turn in 104 zinc ores to Talib. In port bastok f-6. I had done sam. quest and
quest for tonko ichi. But thats it in Norg. I was told the 104 zinc ores would do it. GL not cheap. had to pay 500 to 700 each. (lakshmi)
don't lower your just earned fame

many people have reported having to bring drastically different numbers of yag necklaces to achieve their desired fame. just be careful that you are not fighting yourself. make sure you have completed getting your fame in other cities first. or if you try to do the easy selbina quest "only the best" to raise fame in jueno, basty, and sandy and turn in boyahda moss it will lower your just earned norg fame. so make sure you are not raising your fame levels of different cities at the same time. get jueno done first.
Quest completion....?

Okay, here goes:

Norg Fame level: 4
Rice Ball price at Tenshodo in L. Jeuno: 153g

Yesterday: Triggered quest, went to ??? place in Sea Serpent Grotto, got cutscene with Gen or whoever(Ghost ninja?), obtained Key Item: Sea Serpent Statue, went back to Norg (via deathwarp), talked to Lasirean (Quest Giver), no cutscene, nothing received, didn't even acknowledge what i did. Zoned out and back in, still nothing.

Today: Checked with Lasirean again, nothing new, so went back to Giddeus, got 24 more necklaces, warped back to Norg, talked to Lasirean, still nothing. Just for the heck of it, zoned back out, came back in, still nothing. Checked fame level again, still level 4 fame. Turns out I ended up receiving Leviathan quest for SMN and tuning fork of water.

So, any ideas?

# Jul 03 2006 at 4:45 PM Rating: Decent
why does everyone seem to think that nin is a tank god? to be honest, theyre not that great. they cant keep hate, they take uber damage when their shadows are down, plus, to be one, u have to have huge sacks of gil... (On a side note, i was kicked from a pt today, because i didnt have /war. they said, and i quote, "I hate ppl who think that they have a choice, or that in MMOs theres room for creativity or originality.)

you should come to hades, just leveled from 14 to almost 16 in dunes without any spells. went like this.

Asker: <party> <do you need it?>

Me: <Utsusemi> <I have nothing to give you>

Asker: thats ok, we don't need a tank

next pt

Asker: <Party> <Do you need it?>

Me: <Utsusemi> <I have nothing to give you>

Asker: nin tanks aren't very good, we got a pld

so yea, sorry ninja's but we aren't gods of the battle filde. I don't play by the job rules, and not every pt will take me. But I"m not going to stop having fun just couse one group won't take me, I'll wait for the group that will and as you can see there are some that will. :3

I kinda agree with the Nin not being that great. (75 Pld 50 Nin here).

/war is a great subjob for all melee jobs. If you are a sub 60 Drk/Sam/Mnk/Pld/Nin/ you really need to have the job leveled. It's so annoying when playing with a Sam/Thf or a Drk/Thf and you try to SATA setup with a Thf/Nin and can't because the Sam/Thf has a level 4 Warrior subjob. If you don't have it adequetly leveled and you are a Melee, you are not doing your party any favors.
Balls and stone examining.

A few things i'd like to put out there.

1. As far as I know, fame will affect prices immediately, though how many are purchased on one day will only affect the price they are on the next game day. I did 6 necklace turn-ins, checked the price (158) which was the same price I'd been quoted after turning in 150 or so necklaces from several days earlier. On the same game day, I made 6 more turn-ins and and the zinc twice. then i checked the price before the game day was over and it dropped to 152, and it was then that i could get my quest. So you can use rice balls as a guage, just not over the course of several game days, I think.

2. Every time I was doing a turn in of necklaces, I'd talk to Nanaa at least once. Until my very last 6 turn-ins, she would say something about a stone she was examining. after my last set of turnins, she said something else. I don't remember exactly what, but it might just be a sign that you made a higher level of fame.

Read the Ninja job forum for more extensive fame guide for ninjitsu quests and the 'exact' formula.

I didn't get the quest for the scroll until I finished the two rusty armor ones and the Tonto scroll.
Number of Shadows?
# May 02 2006 at 11:49 PM Rating: Decent
How many shadows does this actually give you? From the description it sounds like only one; so I would guess that it's similar to Third Eye for SAM.

It gives you three shadows.
Utsu: Ni gives you 4, or 3 if you're /nin sub, with deliberately difference recast and cast times.

How shadows work, and how to blink tank, is covered in detail here, and elswhere in the ninja forums:

Just to throw everyone for a loop...

Got all quests except Utsusemi (of course, the only one I really want...) and Hojo with the price of rice balls sitting at 163g. Traded in 112 yag necklaces; never done the zinc quest or the sneaking-past-customs quest.

And to unlock Jubaku you must have a Damp Scroll in your possession. You can have all the fame you want, you won't get the quest unless you have that. ^^

I am trying to do the quest for Utsu, and friends of mine have told me that I should only need to farm about 200 yag necklaces...

I've turned in about 224 and Laisrean only talks about the odd things that remind him of the diverse world.

I have very little or no fame in bastok (if that matters.) I have done the Ninja flag quest but thats about it for Norg related stuff.

Where can I check the riceball price? and what else might i have to do?
NIN quests
# Jul 08 2005 at 11:33 AM Rating: Decent
Ok to sum up:
Zinc Ore = 0.5g - from Rice Ball price.
Yagudo Necklace = 0.25 - from Rice Ball Price.
Airship Smuggling = 0.75 - from Rice Ball Price.

Utsusemi Ichi can be obtained at 159g each.
BUT you need to have done Tonko, Kurayama, Dokumori, Jabaku, Hojo...

(This is how i did mine, couldnt get quest until i had all others, Checked Rice Ball price before ending Utsusemi Quest (159g)

Personally i think the Zinc Ore quest is by far the most worth-while, loads of fame for minimum effort, all worms around the world drop zinc ores, with TH1 they can drop more than 1 a time so i farmed them in korroloka tunnel.
I wouldnt try doing the Airship Smuggling quest from San d'oria because you can have your Airship Boarding License revoked for 24 hours RL (which absolutely sucks unless you aren't intending on partying in the next 24 hours) but you can try take the risk if you want, the quest is pretty much random on getting through customs (arrivals entrance door) without getting caught. but you will need rank 5 or 500k to burn (Airship Pass sold in Lower Jeuno Map stall for 500.000 gil)

happy hunting guys!

P.S: FYI to my lv60DRK some of the mobs down in sea serpent's grotto up to the ??? for utsusemi quest appear as easy prey (non agro) so if your below that, silent oils are a good thing to have, especialy seeing as 3 Sea Bonze's (lv47-50) pop in the ??? room.

Fame In Norg
# Jun 18 2005 at 7:04 PM Rating: Decent
Let me state for the record that in order to get the Tonko quest, Riceball price should be in the 158-157 area, for Utsusemi quest, get it to 152 just to be sure, b/c when i went @ 153, it still wasn't enough, so I had to do the "Like shining Leggings" quest there in Norg, Not fun or cheap. Yag necklaces are the best, i did 104 yag necklaces and around 28-32 or so Zinc ores.

For the Utsusemi quest, please remember to get your Pots of Sneak Oil. I used 4 and barely got by, save yourself the trouble and get 5 just in case... the Sahagins down there show you no mercy

I would also like to state for the record that Ninja job is NOT CHEAP, I repeat, NOT CHEAP! If you plan on leveling this one, be ready to pay up for powders like "Uchitake" and "Kawahori-Ogi" both running for 15k-20k here in Hades.

Other than that, Enjoi... ^_^

handed in 176 or so yagudo bead necklaces, became a tenshodo member and had lvl 3 norg fame.
did the rusty subligar, rusty leegings and tonko ichi quests and still had lvl 3 fame. Checked the rice ball price and it was at 153 at this time. Went to bastok handed in 9 zincs (1 for the first time)and killed the leeches in korrolaka tunnel for nin quest. Went to norg and had enough fame to do the quest. Did it then went to bastok to finish up the nin quest.
# Apr 30 2005 at 10:56 PM Rating: Decent
Ok people, I had absolutely no fame in Bastok or Norg. I needed the Ninja scrolls so I can level Ninja. I started the quest "Shady Business". With absolutely no fame in Norg, you will have to do the quest 25 times to get the Tonko: Ichi quest. You will have to do it 5 more times to get the Utsusemi: Ichi quest. All in all, you must do the quest 30 times to get both quests. I hope this helps^^
fame in norg
# Apr 17 2005 at 10:17 AM Rating: Decent
fame in norg is directly connected to bastok fame. i have maxed out my fame in bastok and when it came time to do the yag necklaces or the zinc quest i did about 40 necklaces and the zinc quest once. i had enough fame to do the tonko quest ... after that i had enough to do uts. and so on. hope that helps
RE: fame in norg
# Aug 18 2005 at 12:57 AM Rating: Decent
I can't see how this can be accurate. I got my fame level in all cities to at least level 4 in order to do the Teleport quests. Windy is 5, Bastok is 4, Sandy is 8. However, I have no Norg fame. The guy had no clue who I was.
