I need to buy Cornettes dangit! Get out of last place for once... I swear they have been in last place for months, every week.

It's Bastok. The entire time I was playing they were in last place most of the time on many servers, and while it made it to second sometimes, it was hardly ever in first... It made it really hard to get CP items, but that's how it was.

If you need Windurst fame, it might be better to do it the hard way than to wait weeks or months (depending on your server) for a chance to do it the "easy" way. Personally, I suggest farming quest items in Sarutbaruta. The Mandies ther drop three items that can be turned in for Mandragora-Mad (including Cornettes), the Rarabs drop letters for The Postman Always K.O.s Twice (the ones in East Sarutabaruta drop a different letter than the ones in the West). The Mandies there also drop buds for Teacher's Pet, but you'll need to farm bird feathers or buy them to turn in along with those. Finally, if you have the available inventory space, you can turn in Crawler Calculus for Creepy Crawlies.

If you have a lot of patience, I'd also suggest Something Fishy. It's a fast way to build Windurst fame, but you'll need a fishing pole and bait (preferably a Sabiki Rig), and it requires a lot of zoning or warping. It follows the same principle as killing Bubbly Bernie for fast Bastok fame, but it's much less of a headache.

Anyway, I hope this helps.

Bastok seems to go through bigger swings than Windy or Sandy, every few months Bastok gets its **** together and grabs first or second for 5-6 weeks then divebombs back into last until the next cycle comes along. Given some time Bastok will eventually crawl out of last, they always do, but the above poster's suggestions are likely to get you results before this happens. And if nothing else, you can do Windy quests for fame, I got to level 6 fame on quests alone.

Tell you this much though, even though Bastok is in last this week, they DID swing upwards in the past to take over Beadeaux S
