From alla. Hope it's legit. Not sure I like coffer keys being one of the items. Everyone and their uncle is going to be out searching for them if that's the case.

New Lower Jeuno Dialog .... Note the bolded parts

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Um... What was I saying, again?≺NewLine≻Oh, yeah...the Empire of Aht Urhgan. You want t' see the Near East, don't you? I can see it in your eyes.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
How does Aht Urhgan sound to you?≺NewLine≻≺Selection Dialog≻I want to go!≺NewLine≻Psh, not interested.≺NewLine≻ ≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Heheh, I appreciate your honesty.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Is 'at so? That's all I 'ave to say to you then, so get out o' here.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Well, aren't you clever? But once is enough. Seriously.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Anyway, that's enough batting aroun' the bush for now. Let's dig straight in t' the juicy details, shall we?≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
You know the ships at Mhaura used t' transport prospective mercenaries to the Near East? If you want t' climb aboard one o' those vessels, you 'ave got to go through none other than the Tenshodo here.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

We received a request from the Empire 'erself. Getting those ships t' port was a royal pain. We finally managed t' bargain a cheap price on some rickety old vessels, and...≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

And you don't care. Sorry abou' that. A man's got to vent sometimes.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Anyway, you should know by now how things work around 'ere. If you want something, you 'ave to bring me something I want, first.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

If you aren't in the mood t' scavenge up what I want, you can always cough up gil instead. O' course, that would be quickest.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

Let's make this explanation brief, shall we?≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
You see, prices are a mite different in the Near East. Something that sells for a gil a dozen here might be a luxury item in Aht Urhgan.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Jumping straigh' to the point, now.≺NewLine≻I want you t' bring me some common items from this side o' Vana'diel, and I'll give you the ≺Marker: 1A00≻ in exchange.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
The more you bring me, the better. I 'ave put together a few lists if you'd like to take a look. I will leave it t' you which to bring me.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

Ah yes, and there is gil, too. Righto.≺NewLine≻You can buy your way out if you choose.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
If you decide t' go the gil route, I will need ≺Numeric Parameter 0≻ gil up front. That's nothing for adventurers nowadays, righ'? You can also consider it your price o' failure, heheh.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

So what'll it be?≺NewLine≻I'll read the list now, so decide which set is in your budget and make a note o' what you need.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

What'll it be?≺NewLine≻≺Selection Dialog≻Beginner list.≺NewLine≻Intermediate list.≺NewLine≻Advanced list.≺NewLine≻Pay the ≺Numeric Parameter 0≻ gil.≺NewLine≻Please explain again.≺NewLine≻Let me think about it.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

It's going t' take you some work if you want to go to Aht Urhgan, but you cannot get there through anyone but us.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Heh heh heh...≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
The advanced list, eh? A superb choice. The items on this list are few, so they should fit nicely in your bag, but they are quite difficult t' come by.≺NewLine≻You can choose from the following:≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

One coffer key from a beastman stronghold--Davoi, Beadeaux, Castle Oztroja, the Temple of Uggalepih, the Den of Rancor, the Quicksand Caves, or the Sea Serpent Grotto.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
A “testimony.” Those ancient scraps of papyrus seem t' be quite popular with collectors these days. I don't know all the details, but apparently there's a testimony for any o' the jobs an adventurer can be. Anyway, I just need one.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Your last option is t' bring me chips from Pso'Xja.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

I'll need a set o' those, though. You'll 'ave to bring me ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 0≻, ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 1≻, and ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 2≻, all three.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

That's it for the advanced list.≺NewLine≻You can bring me any one o' the above requests, but if you decide t' bring Pso'Xja chips, I'll need 'em in a set o' three.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Intermediate, eh?≺NewLine≻This one is quite a bother.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

Beastmen 'ave been a real plague t' the Near East as of late. Not that we haven't been having problems here, too.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
But anyway, the situation 'as driven up the demand for beastman spoils.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
I want you t' bring me ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 0≻, ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 1≻, and ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 2≻.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
The beastmen have been using those t' relay orders. I require all three.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
That's all for the intermediate list.≺NewLine≻It may sound simple, but those items are scattered all about the strongholds and are rather difficult t' get a hold of.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
You say you want t' go to Aht Urhgan, but you're too big o' a coward to face a challenge, eh? That attitude will get you nowhere in the Empire, I tell you. Ah well, it's all the same t' me, as long as I make a profit.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
This will be more like running errands, but there are a lot o' things for you to collect on this list.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
There are a lot o' curious items here. I need you to bring me ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 0≻, ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 1≻, and ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 2≻.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Wait, there's more. I also require ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 3≻ and ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 4≻.≺NewLine≻...Oh, and one last thing--≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 5≻. Hand me these six items at one time, and I will be satisfied.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Hoho!≺NewLine≻So this high and mighty adventurer refuses t' be reduced to running errands!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Ah, sorry abou' that.≺Marker: 7F3601≻≺NewLine≻I'm not picking on you, so don't get your feathers in a ruffle.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
So you are going t' pay me ≺Numeric Parameter 0≻ gil. Is that correct?≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
You won't receive the permit immediately, you know. Are you okay with that?≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Pay ≺Numeric Parameter 0≻ gil for the permit?≺NewLine≻≺Selection Dialog≻On second thought, no.≺NewLine≻Yes.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
You're not going t' regret this later, are you?≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Be honest.≺NewLine≻≺Selection Dialog≻Now that you mention it...≺NewLine≻Regret? I know the word not!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Blimey! You've only got ≺Numeric Parameter 6≻ gil?≺Marker: 7F3602≻≺NewLine≻Come back when your pockets are a little heavier!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Congratulations, ≺Marker: 7F855B≻sir/ma'am], we have a deal!≺NewLine≻Come back tomorrow and I will give you the ≺Marker: 1A00≻.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
And don't you worry, because the Tenshodo is true t' its word!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
該ou pay Faursel ≺Numeric Parameter 0≻ gil!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Exactly what I asked for!≺NewLine≻Congratulations, ≺Marker: 7F855B≻sir/ma'am], we have a deal!≺NewLine≻Come back tomorrow and I will give you the ≺Marker: 1A00≻.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
And don't you worry, because the Tenshodo is true t' its word!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
What's done is done. Sorry, but I'm not giving any refunds.≺NewLine≻Come back tomorrow and I will give you the ≺Marker: 1A00≻.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Good day t' you.≺NewLine≻You can 'ave your ≺Marker: 1A00≻ now!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
With this, you can ride t' the Near East from the port at Mhaura.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
I 'ave got t' tell you up front, though, that the high seas are a dangerous place. I can't guarantee your safety, so travel at your own risk.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
If I were you, I'd be praying for the ship t' simply stay afloat.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Heh heh heh...≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
With ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Marker: 1A00≻, you can ride t' the Near East from the port at Mhaura.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Good day t' you.≺NewLine≻I 'ave got your ≺Marker: 1A00≻ here. Unfortunately, I cannot hand it t' you just yet.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Righto. Here goes nothing.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Being o' the Tenshodo, I couldn't accept such an exorbitant price for a simple permit without including some type o' extra service.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Can you hear me, anyway...?≺NewLine≻Well, when you open your eyes, you're in for a surprise. Heheh.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
Ah, it's you again.≺NewLine≻Did you make it t' Aht Urhgan in one piece? Sorry for catching you by surprise earlier.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
I'm not sure if you know this or not, but Aht Urhgan has a pact forbidding airships from flying over their nation.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
O' course, we found a way around that, and dropped you into that ginormous forest from the sky. The Tenshodo'll always give you your money's worth.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
We didn't want anyone else t' know about that route, so we had t' bail you out from midair and keep the operation secret. Sorry, but it was the only way.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

--------------------------------------------------

Ok, heres the lowdown, theres obviously a selection menu with a beginner, intermediate, advanced list of items .... or the gil way out (much like airships and Khazam)

Advanced List: (choose any one item)

- Beastman Stronghold Coffer Keys:
--- Davoi
--- Beadeaux
--- Castle Oztroja
--- Temple of Uggalepih
--- Den of Rancor
--- Quicksand Caves
--- Sea Serpent Grotto.

- A Testimony

- Pso'xja Chips


Intermediate List: (3 items needed)

But anyway, the situation 'as driven up the demand for beastman spoils.

The beastmen have been using those t' relay orders. I require all three.

-Appears to be 3 Garrison Items. Probably the 3 Strongholds

Beginner List: (6 items needed)

Hand me these six items at one time, and I will be satisfied

- No way of knowing until its in game

Gil

- Unknown Amount

Well, there you have it folks, 4 ways to do this quest (technically more, the "advanced" route has some options) and a whole day to do it. I imagine the primary three strongholds are gonna be PACKED tomorrow. But I'm sure plenty will go the the outlands bases too. I expect Pso'xja to be ther least travelled road, but I'm sure some people will venture there to escape the severe lack of mobs that will be populating other places. I think I'm gonna go to the Grotto myself. I've barely fought any Sahagin ever so I need a change of scenery.


Edit: Modified after considering BlainesTaru's and nosajx's posts below. Looks like all 4 routes make you wait a day, but since it says day in the dialog, that should mean a game day. So, looks like you can prepare the items tomorrow or wait to see how big of a hole SE just drilled into your wallet if you want to be on the boat ~1 hour after ToAU is up.

Judging from this, I would think getting a testimony would be the easiest way, since there are so many different places and monsters to kill for one, and, in my experience, drop faster than keys.

The files that hold the data in FFXI. It's the files like "16.DAT" you see whenever you update.

I think the test would be the best way to go. It seems when ever a big group of us go you we get atleast 10 of the ones we don't want. Razz
