Rather than repeat myself on each page for these quests, see the talk page for Supply Stocking. Since the same basic info and tricks for speeding things up or getting more XP applies to all of these, I'm applying the same info (with edits appropriate for individual quests) to all versions of the quests given by the Madria Varas .

Ship Out IS still required to do this quest!Edit
Meant to mention it earlier, but there was a note on the page that said Ship Out was not a prereq. for this quest. I can confirm that the note was incorrect, after doing all of Madria Varas's quests on at least two max level tradeskill characters in the past week.

- That can't be correct, because I have never done the quest ship out and I have completed this quest (and the other 3 Madras Varas quests for that matter also).
- It could be that there is a faction requirement to obtain the quests (because you get a lot of faction for doing ship out), but there are other ways to get far seas supply faction than doing the quest ship out or the Madras quests. Jado818 (talk) 13:37, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
- Actually, you're right Jado. I had this NPC mixed up with the Kaisha Swifteasel, who gives the unlimited repeatable writs; those are definitely locked out until Ship Out is complete. It was 3 or 4 am my time when I headed up there with the new characters to start running through these. Thanks for catching it. Do you have any way to check if there's a general faction requirement for Madria Varas and her quests? All of my alts are level 32 tradeskill at the minimum (gotta have the leaper). I could roll and run a baby alt up there, but if you have one to test it with, that'd be fab. Yasuewho (talk) 22:46, January 29, 2014 (UTC)Yasuewho
- I was able to get the quest on a character that had never earned any Far Seas supply faction at all so there is no faction requirement. That was the only thing I could think of as a reason you might not have been able to get the quest without doing Ship Out. I'm gonna remove the faction note.

I think that it's only tied to level after the check I did tonight on a level 1 with zero tradeskill and a check with a couple of alts around sixty. I would expect the minimum is still fifty, since that's what it was when they first added these. 220.127.116.11 07:44, February 2, 2014 (UTC)Yasuewho
