So, i have over 200 hours on my Suikoden V game. I have the guidebook, and know the game well.


Sadly, none of these have helped me in my quest to get Bastan. I go and get the Painting? from that dragon guy outside of Stormfist. I actually got about 20 of them a few times. I go to Haud, and get the ammpraised. Nothing happens. Then a friend tells me to just get one, and walk in and out of his store until eh initiates a convo. It's yet to happen.


What am I doing wrong!? I'm at the end, and have already spent about 40 hours throughout the game trying to get this guy.

Have you just talked to him with such a painting in your bag, but closed the window without appraising it? This should work...

Get ?paintings from the Revolving Bridge (or any other place you can get them). Any ?painting will do and you need only one. Go to talk to Bastan (don't appraise the ?paintings!) until he starts talking about the famous Ivanov painting. He will then ask to join you.

If he doesn't initiate the talk, exit the conversation window and try again. Note that is event occurs very rarely, i have spent many hours myself to get this guy. Though, others have rceruited him by talking to him only 4 times, for example.

Is there a time limit to when you can do this? If I missed the window....I am going to be so angry, my insides may implode.

If i am not mistaken you can only recruit upto the night before the Final War Battle at Sol Falena.

I am not too sure if you can recruit after that as i have always had everyone before then.

I've also read that you have to first see that scene with him, where an "artist" form Haud presents him his work and where Bastan praises it although he thinks it's crap. I don't know if there's a point in the game where the scene does not appear anymore, though...
It's best to see it when you first come to Haud, after the attack on Sol-Falena.
Then, continue the storyline and get the ?Painting at the Revolving Bridge, first time you can get some.
You can recruit Bastan anytime after you get your HQ until the night before the last battle, like Goldy said.
Just talk to him with the painting in your inventory, do not appraise anything. If the conversation window does not appear, quit talking without appraising the painting and start the conversation over again.
It can be annoyingly long. First time I played, it took me around 10 trials. But in the following playthough, I maybe had to talk to him 50 times to get the dialogue right!
Don't get discouraged too early!

Once I finally picked up the right painting, he noticed it right away! I guess I was just lucky.

Well, I missed the window then. All I have left to do is beat the boss (which I've done) Thanks for the help guys, I'll just get him the 3rd time around.

since there's no right paintings yes you were lucky to get it right away. usually it'll take three to four tries.

Does having only a single ? Painting increase the chances of triggering the conversation with Bastan? I recall having like a bunch of those paintings from the Revolving Bridge, and it took FOREVER to get him to talk. I had thought that I was in a non-recruiting period or something, but he eventually gave in.

i haven't tried it with one yet, but book says to do it after the revolving bridge since you get some many ? paintings. it may increase the chance of him giving in.

I think you can talk to him, then exit if the event doesn't occur and just try again. I think that's how I got him because I was lazy to get a bunch of paintings. Too much effort just for the appraiser.

I always do it with just one painting and it usually doesn't take very many tries, only about 4-5 on average.

I picked up Bastan right after I acquired the castle. It just takes some persistence.

Just talk to him with ANY painting in your inventory if the sales windo pops up instead just exit out of the window (NOT THE STORE) and keep talking to him on an off without having the painting apraised until he talks to you an joins.
