Quest Tips
The Sommelier The Brigand Boss at the Thieves’ Shrine drops Ram Wine. Otherwise, it’s not terribly hard to find.
The Grand Duke of Dairy Pegasus Cheese can be gotten from the War Room in Desaix’s Fortress or from the “Taken Treasure: Desaix’s Vault” sub-quest.
Sweet Treats Flour and Butter can be found in the Priory, Honey from the Temple of Mila. Otherwise, just smash barrels etc. in dungeons until you find them.
A Dried Delicacy Dried Shieldfish can be found at Novis Greatport.
A Fishy Request Just complete the “Ethereal Fishing Line” sub-quest. If you somehow lose the Gossamer Hair before completing that quest, you can find Dagon Fillets during the post-game.
The Dram of the Gods Duma Moss can be found next to the Mila Idol in later dungeons. Bonewalker Oil is occasionally dropped by regular Bonewalkers (3% chance), Gargoyle Ear from Gargoyles with Eerie Screech (5% chance). Refer to “Do You Ear What I Ear?” for locations of the latter.
A Few Gears Short Please check this page for the location of all 9 Cogs. It also helps if you keep a checklist.
It’s Oil Right Certain Bonewalkers in the first area of the Sylvan Shrine are guaranteed to drop Bonewalker Oil. Otherwise it’s a 3% chance from early Bonewalkers. If you’re sneaky, you can save your game before handing over oil and soft-resetting (press L, R and START) if the reward is rubbish.
Corraling Coral Cut down all the grass and break all the boxes etc. in the first area of the Seabound Shrine. There’s also a single Coral Fragment in Zofia Harbor.
A Bargain Bauble You should have enough Silver Marks by now; if not, consider trading in some unwanted items at the Smithy in the Forest Village.
The Merchant of Death A painful quest without the Astral Temple or Inner Sanctum DLC. There is a Steel Lance in Zofia Castle (don’t pick it up as Alm; or send to Celica via a Peddler), another in Desaix’s Fortress (send via Peddler) and one last one at the Desert Stronghold. You can also evolve the Iron Lance from the Dragon Shrine. For the last one, you can send over Clive’s Steel Lance (thus using up most of your Peddlers). By the way, any Steel Lances you give to Alessio are equipped by Slayde and the Rigelian Barons in the Last Bastion.
Secret Menu Mana Herbs are always found next to a Mila Idol, so this should be easy so long as you remember to pick them up (and you don’t eat them).
The Unbreakable Shield There are exactly 4 Dragon Scales in the main story: from the Temple of Mila, randomly from the “It’s Oil Right” sub-quest, dropped by Dolth at Dolth Keep and dropped by an Arcanist in Archanea Seaway 4.
One Man’s Trash… The enemy Entombed holding the Lima Armlet is located near the western treasure chest. It hits like a truck and its allies aren’t pushovers either, so be prepared. Ranged options (such as Mages, Archers and the Lightning Sword) are good.
A Dazzling Delicacy As mentioned earlier, Duma Moss can be found next to the Mila Idol in later dungeons. You only get a limited number of them this way, so keep this in mind.
The Clumsy Cleric Once Act 4 begins, you can continue down the stairs in the dungeon-like area past the Control Room. At the very end, you’ll find the Silver Platter–and Nomah wandering around lost.
A Royal Requiem The enemies you must face are waiting near the western treasure chest again. If you’re still near the beginning of Act 3, they can prove to be extremely dangerous. Make sure to save your game before challenging them, in case they’re too strong. If you have access to Seraphim (via Mage Faye or a Saint), it will make short work of the Guardian.
The Wages of Sin Just keep beating up the Brigands in the Thieves’ Shrine. Watch out that a powerful Dracul can spawn near the treasure chest and, if you’re on Act 3 or later, a Garuda in the middle of the three Brigands. Keep your eyes on the bottom screen map in case you see a big enemy indicator.
Peace for the Departed Similar to the above, just keep repeating Novis Cemetery a few times. If you’ve completed Act 2, enemies will stop spawning; in which case, you will have to beat the game first.
Do You Ear What I Ear? Gargoyle Ears only drop from Gargoyles or Deathgoyles with the Eerie Screech skill (5% chance). These appear alongside the bosses of Duma Tower Areas 2 and 4. They also occasionally spawn at Mire Boneyard, Duma Tower (Areas 2 and 4), Duma Temple (Areas 4-6 and 12; refer to this map) and Thabes Labyrinth (B3, B7 and B9).
Taken Treasure: Desaix’s Vault The Rion Shield is sitting in the Desert Stronghold. Which means you need to send it to Alm via a Peddler. Or wait until you’ve completed the game.
Taken Treasure: Grieth’s Vault The Fugue Shield is gathering dust in Grieth’s Citadel.
Goylenapped You will find the kidnapped girl near the Mila Idol.
The Prisoner’s Whereabouts After accepting the quest, head for the dungeon cell in the north-west corner of the Sylvan Shrine’s first area. In the far corner is some writing on the wall. Once you’ve read the writing, you can find the kidnapped merchant in one of the dungeon cells in Nuibaba’s Abode.
In Search of a Son After accepting the quest, you can find A Son’s Journal near the treasure chest in the far north-west corner of the Dragon Shrine. Once you’ve handed over the journal, exit the village and return to receive your reward.
Memories of a Father Having spoken to the Young Traveler, there’s a chance of a Revenant with a Red Tricorn spawning in the Mountain Graveyard. If you’ve completed Act 3, enemies will stop spawning; in which case, you will have to beat the game first.
Craving Cute The rewards you get from the girl are completely random, so try not to give her anything valuable. Easiest way is to farm a bunch of Coral Fragments from the first area of the Seabound Shrine. Like with “It’s Oil Right”, you can save and soft-reset if she gives you junk.
Mythic Medicine Just complete “Secret Menu”. You can even repeat that sub-quest if you somehow used up or got rid of the Medicinal Syrup.
Chopped! There’s a Splitting Axe in the Desert Stronghold. Or you can totally give him a Devil Axe from Grieth’s Citadel.
The Stolen Icon After the Lumberjack mentions his Duma Carving has been stolen, a Revenant with the Duma Carving will randomly spawn in the Mountain Graveyard. Like before, spawns stop after completing Act 3 and before completing the game.
The Famished Fisherman The fisherman is picky and only accepts foods that are “Meaty”. In other words, only Sausage, Ham, Dried Meat or Raw Meat. Barth drops Dried Meat; otherwise, there’s plenty to pick from.
Ethereal Fishing Line The Duma’s Apostle in the Fear Mountain Shrine‘s battle trial is guaranteed to drop Gossamer Hair. You will of course need to send it over with a Peddler–or wait until you’ve beaten the game. Given the timing, the latter is probably more preferable.
Faraway Frontiers If your units are struggling to fend off the pirates and other seaworthy invaders, consider training your units at the Secret Shrine etc. A couple of Dread Fighter to Villager loops will make the post-game a piece of cake.
