1. GETTING NINJA

Ninja is an advanced job that you can get when you reach lvl 30.
To be able to change your job to Ninja you need to do a special
quest

Ayame and Kaede Quest

Quest starts in Bastok Port. Talk to Ensetsu (I-5) and he sends
you on a loop that goes from Kaede (daughter near Ensetsu - next
room) to Kagetora (F-6, Warehouse I) and back to Ensetsu who will ask
you for a favor.

You need to bring him a strangely shaped coral from Korroloka Tunnel
(Bastok Mines -> Zeruhn Mines -> Korroloka Tunnel). You need to get
to position K-8 on the map where you will find "???".

When you touch it, three named mobs - "Korroloka Leeches" will appear.
They are very tough so bring a high lvl player to help you (2 x lvl30
+ lvl 55 WHM will do). When you kill them - click the "???" again to
receive a coral. Bring it back to Ensetsu - he will send you to Norg.
Talk to Ryoma and get a katana from him. Go back to Ensetsu and talk
to him.

You can now become Ninja.
