  • Ollier is in dire need of an adventurer's assistance.
※This quest is available for a limited time only.
  • Ollier and his fellow attendants have been hard at work spreading the word across the realm of all the Gold Saucer has to offer, but it seems there is a rub─one of his colleagues has lost his confidence entirely, and the man refuses to admit that there is a problem. Ollier would have you inquire with the poor man as an impartial third party, and begs that you accompany him to Limsa Lominsa, where the individual in question is currently on assignment.
※Please note that you will be unable to complete this quest after the seasonal event has ended. For details, please check the Lodestone.
  • Speaking to Ollier upon your arrival in Limsa Lominsa, you learn that the dispirited colleague of whom he spoke is none other than Senor Sabotender─the Gold Saucer's star mascot and mood-maker. Whatever could be responsible for his uncharacteristic lack of motivation? All you can do is speak to the succulent staff member and inquire for yourself.
  • You inquire with Senor Sabotender in hopes of gleaning the reason behind his recent malaise, but receive only a knowing gaze and beckoning arm in response. It would appear the Gold Saucer's mascot would prefer to discuss the matter out of the earshot of any potential eavesdroppers.
  • As you survey your surroundings in search of Senor Sabotender, you are greeted instead by one Nanaphon─the young thespian inside the succulent green suit. The lad explains that while he has traveled with his colleagues here to Limsa in hopes of spreading the word about the Gold Saucer, he has found himself unable to sufficiently express the full extent of its wonders, as he has been sworn to a vow of silence so as to conceal Senor Sabotender's true identity. He rejoices when you offer to be his voice, and promises to share his finely honed sales pitch that you may contribute to the promotional effort.
  • Fully enlightened by Nanaphon as to all the Saucer has to offer, you are now prepared to share the joy of Eorzea's foremost entertainment destination with the denizens of the city. You stride towards the Aftcastle ready to join Senor Sabotenor in your effort to reel in a host of new paying customers.
  • At the Aftcastle, you are rejoined by Nanaphon, who once again has donned his Senor Sabotender suit and sealed his lips tight. Exchanging a determined glance with your succulent friend, you prepare to go forth into the city and give the sales pitch of your life.
  • Through your earnest efforts, the residents of Limsa Lominsa now are well versed in the vast array of wonders that await them at the Manderville Gold Saucer. You prepare to reconvene with Senor Sabotender, in the hopes that your spiny companion is satisfied with your achievements.
  • Though he speaks not a word, Senor Sabotender's intent gaze makes it clear that he is deeply appreciative of all you have done to help make his mission a success. Ollier, as well, arrives on the scene, announcing that all staff have been summoned back to the Saucer at once. Your work in Limsa Lominsa done, you are free to join them in the return voyage.
  • Back at the Saucer, Ollier expresses his profound gratitude for having won over a plethora of new patrons for the establishment─some of whom it would seem have already made the trip. Senor Sabotender, for his part, welcomes the new guests in his inimitable style. Accepting a small token of thanks from the Saucer staff, you take your leave, satisfied that you have done right by your friends─smooth-skinned and prickly alike.

Wait...I know you! You're the case-cracking adventurer who came to our aid in the past! It's me, Ollier! Gold Saucer attendant and de facto investigator, at your service.


...Though truth be told, it's your services that we really need─if you can spare the time, that is. What do you say?


Pardon me, my good sir. My name is Ollier, and I am employed as an attendant at the Manderville Gold Saucer. Could I perhaps trouble you for a moment of your time?


Truth be told, we are in desperate need of a capable adventurer to assist us in a task of the utmost import. Might you perchance be willing to offer your aid?


As you may have realized, we are currently in the midst of the Make It Rain Campaign, a yearly festival during which we hold a number of exclusive, limited-time events.


Though you may be surprised to hear it, there are still those who have yet to experience all the wonders the Saucer has to offer. Thus have we─the staff of the Saucer─decided to take our show into town and spread the word.


However, there has been one troubling development. Ever since we began this little campaign, one of my colleagues has been visibly out of sorts. Normally, he's the most cheerful of all of us, so let it suffice to say that we're deeply concerned.

My colleagues and I have tried to look into the matter ourselves, but I fear the man is too proud for his own good, and refuses to admit anything is the matter. And so, I thought, perhaps an accomplished sleuth like yourself might succeed where we have failed. So...what do you say?

Thank you, good sir! Your generous offer is most appreciated.


The man in question is currently on assignment in Limsa Lominsa. I will be heading there myself shortly after this─let us rendezvous by the Aftcastle as soon as you are able.

Quest Accepted
...Oh, but I've gotten ahead of myself. If you've yet to visit the Gold Saucer, you'll be needing a ticket for admission. In that case, I recommend you try speaking with that young man over there. He's been gloating endlessly of his winnings, and seems to be in the mood to share his good fortune.
System
In order to continue this quest, you must first complete the quest “It Could Happen to You,” which can be undertaken at level 15.
Quest Accepted

Ah, there you are!


Majestic, isn't it? Of all the displays we painstakingly erected, this may be one that best showcases the Saucer's myriad refined delights.


As for the fellow I mentioned... Ah, that's him right over there.
It keeps spinning in circles... Do you think it's quite all right?
All I know is it's making me dizzy just looking at it. Hey, you! Can't you do anything else!?
Look, you've angered it! Or perhaps that was some manner of impromptu dance performance...

In any case, I can't say that I'm terribly keen to see what it does next. Not when we have a table waiting for us at the Bismarck!


So long, spiny whatever-you-are.
System
The bystanders having departed, Senor Sabotender slumps his shoulders in visible dismay.
He's been like this ever since he got here. What say you? Will you speak with Senor Sabotender for me and see if you can ascertain what ails him?

Are you feeling all right?


How goes the campaign?


Give me a spin, will you?
System
Senor Sabotender strikes a pose, but speaks no words. It's unclear if your message reached him...
Senor Sabotender rushed off to the west. Perhaps he wishes to speak with you in a more secluded location?
I'd give anything to see Senor Sabotender in his usual high spirits again...

My apologies for dragging you all the way over here.

Trying to lift my spirits with a jest, are you? I appreciate the sentiment, but I fear I'm not really in the mood...


Surely you jest? Everyone knows it's a Lalafell in a costume. The name'sNanaphon, and I happen to be that Lalafell.


You saw that just now, didn't you? I did my damnedest to convey the sheer splendor of the Gold Saucer with my usual grandiose gestures, but my audience was clearly unimpressed.


Alas, my gyrations and undulations are merely perplexing poses without the spectacles of the Saucer itself! Would that I could explain in my own words all that they are missing out on!


Why don't I, then? Is it not obvious? Because we don't want to reveal to future patrons that Senor Sabotender isn't a real sabotender! ...Not until we've secured their patronage, at the very least.


Whilst donning my costume, I am forbidden from uttering even a single word!


Such is my plight, you see...


At this rate, I will be forced to depart this place having succeeded at nothing but causing quizzical looks and utter confusion. I simply want to join my colleagues in spreading word of the Saucer's splendors across the realm!

What will you say?

I could explain it for you.


...And that's where I come in! Somehow.

What's this? You'd be willing to assist us in our cause!?


What a kind and generous soul you have, my adventuring friend! Why, your sheer magnanimity brings a tear to my eye...


...More than a few tears, even. But what am I doing here crying? I must prepare to welcome you to our little troupe. Pray let me know whenever you are ready!
I'd give anything to see Senor Sabotender in his usual high spirits again...

Ready for your first task? Excellent. Before that, however, allow me to give you an overview of our promotional campaign.


We began with a survey asking for people's impressions of the Gold Saucer. Reviewing the responses, we noted that the vast majority of patrons cited the attractions as one of the venue's main selling points.


While it is true that our attractions are a highlight, there is─as you are well aware─so much more to the Saucer! So we got to thinking about how best to go about informing the world of our lesser-known delights.


I came up with four main features of the Saucer that I hope to promote to people. Which shall I explain first?
Manual : Insert the correct Q & A's below into a table

What will you say?

The allure of the Cactpot!


How easy it is to get there!


The Saucer's best-kept secret!


The lavish costumes of the staff!


Nothing.

Ah, indeed! Whether it's the Mini Cactpot─which casual players can enjoy as many as three times a day─or the lucrative Jumbo Cactpot─available once per week─both offer Gold Saucer patrons a chance to test their luck and reap lavish prizes!


Easy to enter and with incredible fortunes for the taking, the Mini and Jumbo Cactpots are among the most popular ways to rack up MGP─which can then be exchanged for a host of alluring prizes. Dream big and enter the Cactpot today─only at the Manderville Gold Saucer!


Tell me about it! Though the Saucer may seem far away to many─being located at the edge of the Sagolii Desert─did you know that airship passage is available entirely free of charge from all of Eorzea's major cities?


And though the wonders that await you in the Saucer's halls are the main attraction, I'll have you know that the journey via airship is a singular delight in its own right. So why not invite that special someone to soar through the skies on the way to the realm's premiere leisure destination? The Manderville Gold Saucer─only a coin's toss away!


Oho! Clearly I stand before a man of discerning taste. While the Saucer offers no end of games and attractions, refined patrons such as yourself are known to enjoy slipping away to our full-service bar for a refreshing libation or two.


That's right! We've assembled the realm's best barkeeps to prepare a plethora of potables sure to wet your whistle and put you in the mood to marvel at the Saucer's many wonders. Do be sure to stop by!


Ah─a keen eye for fashion, I see. Then you're sure to appreciate the unique costumes and couture worn by our staff─a wardrobe prepared by the sultanate's most esteemed tailors to meet the demanding aesthetic sensibilities of our owner, the incomparable Godbert Manderville.


Be sure to bring something to cover your eyes─the sheer gorgeousness of these ornate outfits is likely to blind you if you do not! Yes, that's right─the Manderville Gold Saucer is a veritable gallery of the most glamorous garb our civilization has ever seen!


...Well? How did that sound? I daresay I've done a remarkable job of distilling the essence of the Saucer's appeal into concise verbiage. Simply remember all of that verbatim, and you'll be ready to help us spread the word of the Saucer wherever you go.


And with that, I do believe it's time for us to get this show on the road. Allow me to see to my preparations, and we can convene at the Aftcastle when we both are ready. Good? Good.

Ah! Clearly, you are an individual of discerning tastes. Right this way, my good sir...

As you can see, business is booming. I'm pleased to say that we've even welcomed quite a few new guests from Limsa Lominsa.


Clearly, the efforts of my colleagues have paid off in more ways than one─and they could not have done it without you. Master Roland will doubtless be thrilled.


Would that we could continue our promotion efforts afield for a while longer... But I fear that we need every able-bodied attendant here at home to deal with the ever-burgeoning crowds.


That's your cue, Senor Sabotender! Let's give our guests a warm welcome─Gold Saucer-style!


In any event, I thank you. Not only have you helped us to expand our clientele, but─as you can see with your own eyes─Senor Sabotender is back to his typical energetic self.


As his colleague and his friend, I cannot begin to express my gratitude.


I can, however, offer you this as a small token of our thanks. Till our paths cross again, may fortune smile upon you at the Saucer!
