Item Quantity Reward

  1. You can trade any size stack (of at least three) of Millioncorn to Melyon and he'll only take 3.
  2. The following macro can be used to trade the Moss while directly facing Melyon:
    /item "Boyahda Moss" <t>

    This macro will only work with Boyahda Moss because it is not possible to trade more than one item at a time via a macro.


Trading Time[edit]

It takes approximately 5 seconds per trade when using the Boyahda Moss macro and going through the NPC chat prompts as quickly as possible; mostly due to Melyon having extended pauses between chat lines. At maximum speed with all 25 stacks of moss in Inventory, this quest will take approximately 1500 seconds (25 minutes) to reach Reputation 9.

Trade Requirements[edit]

The chart below is out of date. SE has dropped the number of items needed to reach 9 Fame.

The following table gives the minimum number of trades required to achieve a given reputation level.

  • The values may be inaccurate.
  • Please update the table with the known (confirmed) minimum when testing with a single type of item.
