Ninja Quest Not FlaggingFollow

Hi everyone.

I've had an issue for the past day that's been driving me absolutely insane.

I can't get the Ninja Flag Quest to start. I've spoken to Ensetsu in Port Bastok, then Kaede. Since that didn't activate any cutscene, I tried every which combination of speaking to these NPCs that might activate the quest - but nothing. Ive spoken to Kagetora, than gone back to Ensetsu, but that hasn't changed their dialogue any.

The dialogue is as follows:
Ensetsu just says the standard: are you looking for something? There is nothing here you would want.... etc.
Kaede: Everyone is proud of Sis- so am i.. etc.
Kagetora: what does a tenderfoot like you want? Get out of here!

I have no quest active for it in my quest log. The steps I've taken so far have been to complete any active missions and quests, and I've done so. The only active quests remaining are:

Shady Business
The Gustaberg Tour
Eco-Warrior
Chocobo on the Loose!

As far as I know, none of these quests should get in the way.

As for me, I'm level a level 30WAR/15MNK Rank 2.

I'm pretty much out of ideas on how to get this quest to start. The only last thing I can think of is Fame - I've since traded a few stacks of Boyahda Moss to the old man in Selbina, but no change thus far.

I noticed some players had similar issues before, but couldn't find a resolution.

Please help! Thanks alot in advance!

Well according to wikipedia you should get a cutscene when you talk with Kaede, then go talk to Ensetsu.

You mentioned that you have war/mnk at level 30, but are you talking to these npc's as that job? If I recall right the responses you're getting are what you get before you're level 30, and most of the advanced job quests need you to be level 30 when you're talking to the npc's.

Also the quest doesn't technically start until you go Kaede - Kagetora - Ensetsu.

I am, which is partially what is so confusing about all this. To test to see if maybe the server just wasn't registering my job, I went and tried to start another Adv Job quest - Dark Knight. I got the quest and cutscene with no problem at all.

Which leads me to believe its definitely something on my end, but for the life of me I can't figure out what :(.

Hmmm. this might be an odd question, but are you a returning player? And if so are you playing on the trial version? I'm not sure if this has the Rise of the Zilart expansion or not, and double check if you registered this expansion if you had it.

I am, however I purchased the 2008 Vanadiel Collection and installed it on the 360. I've since updated my content IDs to show that I have the expansions, though I'm still on my free month.

I thought that might have been the problem too, but it doesn't explain why the Dark Knight quest would start and this won't. Thanks though =)

As for the talking to the npcs in that order, I tried that before, but for good measure I just did it again with no change. Confusing...

I paged a GM about it earlier, but they explained that things were functioning normally (as far as they're aware) and they can't tell me exactly why as it may be due to a quest or some such going on at the moment. They did point me in the direction of the Allakhazam forums though.

Edit: Had a friend with the same rank/quests/level as me come and check it out - he got the cutscene after talking to Kaede. It's odd, since we're almost exactly the same in everything - bastok fame included. The only difference is he has high Norg fame from trading the yagudo necklaces. Perhaps my lack of Norg fame is the culprit?

Hmmm. maybe because it deals with the tenshodo you need to be a tenshodo member?
Try turning in the tenshodo invite in jeuno and see if that makes a difference.

Even if this isn't the solution being a tenshodo member is still useful/required for some later quests and missions.

All I can think of it to make sure you're talking with the quest npc's on a lvl 30+ job..
other than that, very very odd indeed.

I'm gonna admit my shame on a past incident.

Check to make sure it's not already flagged

I spent 2 weeks trying to get fame enough for titan battle, years ago.. never noticed I had it flagged until someone pointed it out

I got glitched somehow on the SAM flag and could not get the CS from the NPC. A mentor suggested I try the bard. The bard gave me the CS I needed and everything proceeded normaly after that.
