Talk to him a few times, ask him Could you sing for me, please?. He will ask you if its a nice song, simple chose Yes, it was very nice he will then tell you he can help you to become a bard.
If you want to be a Bard, you have to bring him a flower. You cannot bring him any buyable flower except Witherless Rose which is sold 1) From a Trader near the east exit of Morroc (morocc,259,193) 2) From the Gift Merchant in a shop east of Lutie (xmas_in,169,34)
See the other possible flowers of choice listed above also.
Once you done that, he will tell you to bring a present from a talking snowman named Snowysnow in Lutie and also to become friend with the people there. All these means that you have to complete the Lutie Snowman Quest and come back. See Related quest section below for Lutie Snowman Quest Guide.
Requirements: You must be an Archer at job level 40 or higher in order to start the quest.
After you come back from Lutie, he will give you a singing test. All you have to do is pay attention to what he sing and 'sing' exactly as him when it is your turn. Remember to read carefully on the capitalization and punctuation.
Possible songs include:
A Merchant without money or equipment,
a Merchant that couldn't sell anything.
But he was too proud to beg.
So he gathered some money selling items.
At first he only sold Red Potions.
Some say he sold Sweet Potatoes, too.
All Gods never age.
The ever so beautiful Goddess Eden,
Beautiful and graceful Goddess Eden,
Odin's daughter-in-law and Bragi's wife.
Her sweet apples in her basket,
All thanks to her sweet apples.
There was a man
who was said to be immortal.
His name Jichfreid,
Son of the hero Jichmunt.
The evil giant Papner,
Turned into a dragon and ate him.
Louder, louder, louder.
Give strength to the warriors!
Shake the sky and roar through the land.
Make my heart pound again!
Let the castle walls ring.
This day will never come again!
Forever call the poets name.
My songs are his breath,
My mind is his will,
All wandering poets are his people,
And all praise shall go to him.
After you pass, you have two options. You can choose to change into a Bard right away. Or you can decide to get a present from him.
If you choose to get a present, you have to bring him some trunks. Read the next part for the possible presents made from each type of trunks.
