I've looked around for the fountain that i am supposed to fetch the water for master makoto (second part of becoming a monk quest) to no avail.
 
Anyone know what zone this fountain is from and how it is to be done?

Its in StarCrest.  I had to do it 4 times.  I walk everywhere, and make sure you walk AND tap the button forward at places like gates, doors, etc.  Especially the dojo steps.
 
I also zoned in gate to gate as soon as possible, I didn't get very close to them.
 
Good luck.

Hmm I happen to get it on first try after reading this i am not sure how. I musta been extremely lucky.When i first got the pale i was just running. When i started to run down the stairs to the bell it said something like you almost tipped the pale but managed to keep the water in. From there on i just nudge the foward button where i would take about three steps at a time. Never had a problem after that. When i had it done i just assumed you couldnt spill it because i ran dam near from the fountain to the bells guess not.

I must have done something right in a previous life.. I got the bucket and went down to take the boat back to Baubleshire and fell in the water.  Didn't see any messages so kept on.. fell into the river in Baubleshire got out and continued on.. walked right up to the master and he told me good job.. (you fall in alot while playing EQ drunk)

I think the secret to this quest is patience. I don't think there is any trick other than to keep trying and trying until you get it. I don't know if there is any set amount of times you must attempt it, but most people seem to get it on their 5th try or so.

I did this on the first try. The trick is 'Patience' pure and simple. When you get the pail of water switch to walk mode and walk all the way to the dojo. You must switch back to walk mode everytime you zone because the game defaults back to run mode. When you get to the zone exit doors/bell you must nudge your way to just within reach of being able to zone. Let me say that again...When you get to the zone exit doors you must nudge your way to just within reach of being able to zone and zone from there. Also when you walk up or down stairs you will have to nudge forward to prevent spilling the water especially on the dojo stairs.
 
Hope this helps :smileyhappy:

I was able to zip through the Down Below without any problems at full speed.  Had to go through twice because of that stupid plank on the stairs.

two questions:1) do you need a bucket? I went to the fountain right click on it and highlighted some message about a bucket of water, and that was it. I dont see a bucket, my quest doesnt say return to master or anything. How do you know if you are doing it?2) is this quest just for munks?I dont want to be a munk I want to be a bruiser, did I click on the wrong thing some where down the line? It seems like I am about to become a munk.

i just ran the whole time, to the fountain, and back, going through the down below, made it on first try with no message at all, i was prepared to have to walk to not spill it or somethin, but never got any messages, i thought that they just didnt have the option of spilling it in the game, but guess it is,lol, must have just got real lucky

Another easy way to do the quest, even with runspeed, is to go through SQ, to NQ, to Elddar.You get an almost spill the water when approching the gate to SQ, but nothing in NQ, and then the step in Elddar.Back in beta, if you had tried to go to the bells, you would fall every time, and I know I kept dropping it when trying to do the Down Below route.

Easy solution to the step at the dojo.  Go to the front left corner by the rock and jump up to the main platform.  I took the Starcrest --> S Qeynos --> N Qeynos --> Eldarr route and ran the whole way.  Only message I got was at the gate from Starcrest to SQ.  Hope this helps.

I ran the entire way and took the most direct route I could find: Starcrest --> Baubleshire --> Eldarr Grove.  I spilled the water a couple times on the steps down to the mariner's bell, but that's it.  It took me maybe 10 minutes tops to finish the entire thing.  I think it's all just luck of the draw.
 
Edited to add: I also tried walking down the stairs to the mariner's bell a couple times and still spilled the water.  Then I just went back to running and it worked after a couple tries.
