Part 32: thing 2 Sidequests (2): Love and Compassion and also violence.
You are watching: Find the prototype trails in the sky
Welcome back. Last time, before heading off to the Jenis Academy to assist with the play, we acquired started on the veritable slew that sidequests sent out down our way. Theres a factor I stated slew, and also not small and also easily tackled amount though, so weve got more on the way.
First, weve got a bounty come take treatment of southern of Ruan.
Our target this time is a huge group that Helmet Crabs. Although they dont look like much, this is actually a pretty challenging fight. If youre fighting top top autopilot you can easily uncover yourself cornered unexpectedly. Hell, i dont need to talk around it, you deserve to watch that instead.
Heres their an initial (and many annoying) trick. They deserve to summon backup, and an ext importantly, they will summon backup. All. The. Fucking. Time.
When youve acquired a details amount of adversaries on the map, area of impacts spells room guaranteed to be efficient by sheer number of targets.
At the very least they would certainly be effective, if the Helmet Crabs didnt have a opportunity of resulting in Seal through their default attacks. Estelle is truly all staff, all the time now.
Joshua casts a brand-new spell, Chaos Brand, the just mirage aligned spell in the game. Unlike many status spells, i beg your pardon are damage + 20% possibility of status, Chaos Brand doesnt do any damage but inflicts confused so long so as they dont stand up to it.Ive personally never ever really offered it, so ns cant comment too lot on how reliable it is. Mine gut feeling is not very, however feel complimentary to correct me and call me bad at video clip games.
Anyway, Estelles switching end to Hurricane to deal damage.
So yeah, the Helmet Crabs reflect every Physical damage...
And the Mint Poms absorb EP. Are you beginning to see just how it all comes together? The main enemies can only be damaged through magic, and they summon backup which absorbs EP, and also can Seal her magic by attacking. Theyre basically minmaxed enemies. Its in reality a really clever setup; Im a pan of this fight.
Still, this fight can be done prior to Kloe joins. Kloe is usually a huge trump card, shes a near unlimited supply the EP and also heavy magical damage.
Anyway, things room going well. Were killing some Helmet Crabs, and keeping over water.
And climate a Mint Pom gets off a cast of Diamond Dust, kills Estelle and freezes Joshua. Freeze is a pretty crippling condition effect; instead of taking a rotate you take it damage, i m sorry is a much worse point to take.
Kloe: Takin names and also saving days.
And reviving, via Revive, a spell i m sorry revives. And also if i say revive anymore it wont sound like a real word.
And then Estelle dies again and Joshua it s okay swarmed.
It provides us a opportunity to use Kloes S-Craft though.
Radiant Plash (an archaic word for splash), is the almighty of all sandbagging techniques. That heals a sizeable amount of HP, cures all status effects and also revives every allies in a huge radius. (Estelle was just external it.) Furthermore, if supplied at 200CP, it increases Defense.
Radiant Plash turns the momentum in our favor, and we finally win.
The Zero shoot (X) is a terrific weapon because that Olivier, with roughly 2 times as plenty of strength as anybody elses weapons. Its just drawback is the Olivier is, yknow, at this time drunk in Rolent. That is actual use is to finish a sidequest, and although you might hold ~ above it until Olivier join again, that wont be front of the curve by then, and youll miss out on out top top a sidequest.Estelle died and Joshua is the end of EP, therefore were walking to keep heading southern to the Air-Letten checkpoint, i m sorry is both the website of a sidequest and complimentary healing, and Nials muse for damaging puns. (Im tho chapped about that.)
Lindsay: Dammit, what"s walk on?Bartholomew: Is the Royal military really walking to simply roll end for part bigwig?
What space they doing? by the looks of them, I"d to speak they"re simply ordinary travelers... However... However? but what?
I need to wonder why over there isn"t a single guard.
currently that you cite it... Possibly something huge is going on...? That, I perform not know... ...but i think we have to ask a guard as soon as we find one. Sounds an excellent to me.
Air-Letten really does have some pretty scenery. Unfortunately, i think the fight it out just can be here, which could sour the prettiest that scenery. the is no the kind to perform so, once he has made decision on something. In light of that, I think he"ll be continuing to be here.Hahn: Hmm... Ns see. Then we"ll have to wait because that the bracers come arrive prior to we deserve to do something more. I"m afraid so. If that"s all, then, ns shall take it my leave.Hahn: Wish united state luck.
ns think I understand that guy...
Hahn: Oh, it"s you! You"re bracers, aren"t you? give thanks to Aidios you"re here. The name"s Sergeant Hahn. It"s nice to meet you. I"m Estelle, bracer in training. And I"m Joshua...also in training. The bulletin board said that a traveler was resulting in trouble...?Hahn: Yes, I"m fear so. Us do have actually an unsavory character... And dealing through him is proving many difficult. Execute you think you might be may be to help us out?Of course! i dont see any kind of reason why managing the Duke could be unpleasant. This might change when i actually view the Duke. Sure. Why not?Hahn: thank you. You"ll it is in doing united state a big favor. Okay, let me fill you in on the details...
Hahn: They"re the victims of this current tiny issue. The traveler in concern is right now in the dining hall. In the dining hall...?Hahn: Yes, we"re hoping the food will persuade him... Because that the benefits of the others here.Persuade him...? Okay, just who is this difficult traveler?Hahn: Well, to be honest...
Bartholomew room you just going come let this sort of bullying walk unchallenged?Lindsay: The Royal military is claimed to it is in on the side of the citizens, right? If so, then execute something around this!Hahn: Now, host on, every one of you...
i understand. Just please, take it a step ba-- Joshua! are you okay?!
I"m... I"m fine... Because that now, I want you 2 to examine on the dining hall! O-okay... We will. Come on, let"s go. ...All right.Sorry Josh, youre ~ above your very own here!
Caesar: If friend reserve all the rooms and also the dining hall, what will I phone call the other guests? Why can"t you see where I"m comes from? her Excellency, ns feel I must agree through him. Maybe we need to return come Ruan, as initially planned? Quiet, Phillip! I prefer it here. particularly since it has such a lovely watch of Air-Letten"s waterfall.Caesar: But, sir...
Its favor Indiana Jones and snakes other than the battle each other is slightly slimier. And not at all slim
You"re that self-centered fight it out guy native before!
Kientz: Well, well...If it isn"t the bracers. You"re late. We"ve been waiting for you. Don"t call me... THAT"S her troublesome traveler?Kientz: carry out you see anyone rather here? *sigh* Fine. It"s no wonder we known the man who was talk to the commander.Kientz: The fight it out there states he intends to remain here. The insists he has to rent all the rooms as well as the dining hall. He really is as selfish together selfish gets, isn"t he?
oh dear... The is a troublesome fellow.Kientz: aristocracy or not, what does he mean us come do? do everyone else go camping? ...And that"s whereby you come in, hopefully. Have the right to you do something to help? Ideally, convince him to go back to Ruan. (Or give him a small nudge end the falls...)Murder is generally extra, however this one? This onell it is in on the house. You desire ME to carry out it?!Also i like exactly how the method these currently are set up renders it seem prefer Estelle is reacting to the nudge over the falls part.Kientz: Isn"t tactical negotiation component of your job? We"re simply soldiers, girlfriend know. Us train through guns and swords, and negotiating with a sword have the right to be somewhat...messy. A-and what provides you think I"m any type of different? I"m an excellent at hitting stuff, no talking!
They usually teach that stuff to someone with a knack for it... (Joshua"s the guy with the silver- tongue, no me...) however Estelle...we can"t simply stand by when this is going on... Hmm...Kientz: Please? also if you can"t to convince him with words, there"s always your staff...Kientz yes, really wants united state to pains the Duke. Hes alright in mine book. *grumble* Okay, okay... Argh...I hate this kinda stuff.Kientz: Well, ns have confidence in you, at least. permit me give it come you straight: you have the right to have every the belief in the world, however I don"t. So, don"t gain your hopes up. I"m certain you"ll do fine. W-well...thanks because that that. Okay...here goes nothing!
Hey... Uh, sophisticated seeing friend here. Whereby you go, trouble follows, huh? Hmm? Who room you talk to, Phillip? (Okay, gotta begin this off right...)
fuckthatcameoutwrong. Hey there, Duke-guy! ...Harrumph. Girlfriend really must have an ext respect once addressing your future king, young lady. Hmph...but no matter. What perform you want? I came to pick you up. Choose me up? i don"t remind ordering someone to perform so. And also where did you take trip from?
The mayors estate. He asked for me to come here. Hmph, i see. The was many courteous the him. Ive currently decided to stay here, at Air-Letten. Yet the dinner party in ~ the legacy is starting soon. I heard that everyone is wait for the arrival of the future king... Ah, in that case, lock will continue to wait indefinitely. I"m tired of dinner parties. I have no intention of going. If I remain here, I gain a lovely see of the waterfall, and also that is far much more interesting. Ha ha ha... Such room the refined tastes of the nobility. B-but... Isn"t this place a tiny low-class because that the future king to be continuing to be at? ns don"t even think they offer fine dining here... Hmm... Well, that much is true. Then, if only for the services of appropriate accommodation... ...Phillip! Y-yes, sir? You space to arrange for lodging as shortly as possible. Notify the hotel in Ruan to provide the bed as far as the checkpoint. And also have them ready their finest chef v the best ingredients for my arrival. H-huh?! and then, have actually the soldiers collection about cleaning the dining hall. Her Excellency, probably that is walking a trifle far... Silence, Phillip! together the following king, I will have appropriate lodging! together is my right, can I add
Oh, reduced the crap already.Messing up the dialogue choices gives united state the failure variation of this sidequest, which is pretty cursed entertaining. More so than the effective version, i m sorry is actually pretty great too. I...BEG your pardon! I"ve been every nice and also courteous, and also you still act prefer a spoiled brat! If friend didn"t have actually Phillip around, you"d probably simply starve! (*sigh* common Estelle... I wonder if this is yes, really her idea that "nice and also courteous"...) Grrrr... Girlfriend insolent whelp! You! Soldiers! What execute you think you"re doing? rush up and arrest this brat! The just one who needs arresting here...
This is a perfect moment.
*sigh* ns guess it really doesn"t matter. Come, Phillip. Allow us go back to Ruan. Yes, sir! together you wish, sir...
and thank you. I am merely glad the the battle each other was not hurt in any type of way.Im no
That would be thanks to this young lady here. She reflexes space remarkable. I"m not details I would have actually been able to hold ago like that...Phillip looks at Kloe together he states this.Duke Dunan: Phillip! What space you doing?! If you"ll please pardon me. Phew... Finally. *sigh* He"s finally gone...
Kientz: She had actually that stick of hers aimed full tilt appropriate at his noggin! i so assumed she to be gonna carry out it! If you might have just seen it...! and also after all that, it took just one girl to work out it.Hahn: Hmm... I see. I have some concerns about resorting come such... Bombastic methods... However I mean no real injury was done.Caesar: that was prefer you subdued a criminal, near enough. I"m really ashamed the myself... We"re sorry.Hahn: No, no. None of this would have happened, were it not for the duke"s selfishness. Girlfriend did just what friend felt was necessary. I execute hope that you"ll try more DIPLOMATIC habits in the future, though. *gulp* I"ll try my best. Many thanks for stopping me, Kloe. It"s no trouble at all. I don"t provide of violence... Yet the duke"s habits was completely reprehensible.Hahn: maybe there were other way available, however you did assist the various other guests. And also for that, we space truly grateful. thank you...err, you"re welcome. Hee hee... All right! hear you say that makes me feeling a small better. Ns swear, friend can"t continue to be upset for more than 3 seconds. yet I guess: v that"s what provides you who you are. *giggle*Hahn: Well, give thanks to you again for your aid today. Might you be equally as established in your future duties. Yep. Take it care. Well, then... If you"ll pardon us.That was pretty fun, however we deserve to do better. Time leap GO!
Greetings, her Excellency. I"m below to collect you. Collection me? i don"t recall ordering someone to execute so. And also where did you take trip from?
This an option is a freebie. The mayor"s estate. That asked because that me come come here. Ahh... Ns see. That is rather admirable that him. But I have no desire to go back to Ruan ~ above this evening. I"ve currently decided to stay here, at Air-Letten. (Okay, dual or nothing... Gotta change his mind, however make the feel choose it"s his idea...)
This is probably the hardest choice; fortunately Estelle offers you a pretty great hint. You really intend to continue to be at this junky old place? i mean, look at around. I don"t think this place deserves the service of the following king. Hmph. Friend declare things I already know to be true. Ns never thought this place to it is in worthy of mine presence. That is, however, occasionally amazing to live together the typical folk do...briefly. Well, I gain that... Yet I don"t think they even have a high-class cook here. No to mention...I"ll gambling it"s no even very sanitary.
Im sorry buddy. Friend cant do an omelette there is no hurting the feel of a couple of chefs. You...think so? Yes, now that you bring it to my attention, the place DOES watch a little bit on the filthy side. Hmm... I suppose I just cannot stay at such a place. (Aaaand now for the sales pitch!)
This ones additionally pretty tough, because we dont quite know what Estelle is going for with the 2nd choice. The formal conversation is your best clue that choice two is the method to go. Her Excellency, by your foot... Hmm? What around my foot? ...There"s a substantial cockroach.
Y-Yes, sir! Wh-where"s the roach? where is it?! Hurry! hurry up and kill it!!
*sigh* Surely, sir, you can expect no far better from the typical peasantry. Why, I"d wager they also have monsters infesting the--
EEEEEEK! E-enough! Phillip! We"re leaving! Yes, sir! as you wish, sir...
Think naught of it.
Still, it to be unexpected. I didn"t know you had actually it in you come be the sneaky.
Ha. Friend never recognize what I"m qualified of, once the instance calls for it. To it is in honest, I simply tried to channel Joshua. Ha ha. It certainly seemed favor that come me. Yeah...and if not, I"d never have been able to lie with a straight confront like that.
Kientz: Ha ha ha... Well, lies come in all shades. Girlfriend did the to assist others, for this reason I"m sure that Aidios will certainly forgive you for it. Yes, we greatly appreciate it. Might you be same as established in your future duties. Yep. Take it care. Well, then...if you"ll forgive us.
Suck the Henry Kissinger, we room the true masters of diplomacy.
And v that, we have the right to go onward to higher things. Near where we battled the Helmet Crabs we find the Sapphirl Tower. Unlike the Esmelas and the Amberl Towers, there yes, really isnt anything official to perform here. Theres no sidequest or anything, its totally a bonus dungeon. A such, to keep these sidequest updates from going top top forever, were going come go with this fast.
Its pretty and also blue and has some an ext Helmet Crabs inside, back none space as strong as the ones combated for the bounty.
Like always, there space some chests guarded by Robber Trappers (my shameful secret is that i didnt acquire that name till I started this LP.) They quiet self-destruct, therefore dont assault up close. Usage magic.
The voices in my lid stated youd return.Now Joshua and also Estelle deserve to have matching outfits!
You come back! i knew girlfriend would!Army Boots have actually three an ext points the defense and one an ext point of move then ours old, store-bought boots. As is the regulation with sneakers, Estelle has first dibs.
Hey, close mine lid! What, to be you born in a barn?!There have actually been rumors...Anyway, the Flamberge is a pretty powerful weapon for Kloe, providing +50 str (20 more than her old weapon). Its solid enough the Kloe is our hardest hitter. From a statistics standpoint, the is. Joshua and double Strike will certainly still do more damage.
The roof. Its acquired a nice check out of the ocean.
Thats not how it works. Us take treasure. Someone else inserts treasure. Not certain who.
Range 1 increases the reliable radius of area of result spells. This is quite useful, specifically for Kloe, since La Tear(a) has a pretty small radius. I dont finish up equipping it for a while though, since for some factor I thought it enhanced the spreading distance that spells. And Ive never had actually a difficulty with that, so ns figured it to be worthless. Of course, the reason I never had actually a trouble with the is because spells have infinite range. Whoops.
Its empty! Treachery!
You it seems to be ~ to be laboring under the hope that something else will certainly magically show up in this north chest. Allow me quash that for you right now.This chest doesnt just dish the end delicious chicken, it likewise dishes the end harsh truths.(Hot Fried Chicken restores 700Hp and cures seal.)
So, when do you setup on giving me my stuff back?Again, not how this works.
Never equip Scent. It has actually some good elemental values (x3 Wind, x2 Space), but it reasons enemies to charge at friend as soon as they spawn. Its very obnoxious.With that done, weve plunder the entire place. Moving on!
Hey, thats a point we did.Karl: I"ve shed a prototype, and you could run across it there. Im planning to go earlier to Zeiss very soon. Please, hurry... Hey, do you think... Is this the prototype gun?Handed end Zero shot (X).Karl: Whoa...! H-how...?! just how did you get your hand on this? A monster near the Sapphirl Tower had it. It more than likely wanted it because that the septium mechanism.Karl: In Aidios" name, say thanks to you so much! Ohhh...I don"t have actually the words! I could give you every a substantial hug and also a kiss!
Ack... I-I"m okay! A-as am I... No, but thank you.So polite.Karl: also the manly girl with pigtails turned me down... *sniffle* Is the prototype really the important?Karl: many certainly. It"s being proactively worked on at the Zeiss main Lab. It"s not ready for publicly sale and distribution yet. Wow, it have to be really effective, then.Karl: are you interested in weaponry? Ha, i guess that"s a stupid question. Together bracers, of course you"d be interested in them. Well, then, let me offer you this quartz together a token of my appreciation. I"m certain it have to come in handy.Received attack 2 Quartz.Attack 2 increases Strength by 10% and also reduces Defense by 10%. That goes straight on Estelle replacing attack 1. I"m sorry, yet we can"t expropriate something this nice...Like hell we cant.Karl: Oh, please. It"s the the very least I can do. And of course, the guild will certainly pay friend for your time and effort, together well. In mira, i hope!Karl: Certainly. You needn"t worry. Right from the main Lab"s coffers to her wallets! I just meant, instead of hugs and kisses...Karl: It"s fairly all right. Friend should just accept your reward in ~ times prefer these. Again, give thanks to you because that what you"ve done today. I"m sure you"ll hear from me again, must anything else come up.And another one bites the dust. Were almost there...
Tobias: Oh, this is about the maintenance Kit, no? her timing is exemplary! will you be able to make the delivery post haste?Hastily is the only method we perform things. Im no sure how to carry out something postily.Tobias: Well, then... This brick of a thing is all yours! Brick...of a thing?Tobias: are you daft? I"m informing you it"s heavy! Very, really heavy! Here-- feel for yourself!Received maintenance Kit. Tobias: you okay v it? No bone fractures forming, to your knowledge? It"s filled to the brim through replacement parts and every device you deserve to imagine for replacing an orbment light of that size. It"s no huge deal in ~ all. I"m more powerful than i look, believe me! We just need to lug this to the lighthouse, right?Tobias: Indeed. To Vogt, the lighthouse keeper. He"s expecting it. Its contents are rather valuable, so you re welcome be as cautious as you can. Tobias: ...I quiet can"t believe it. Together responsibility! together strength! such grace! Ah, youth! Uh...what?Tobias: Jean called me around you two, but seeing for myself just exactly how peppy you are lifts my spirits to the sky. Peppy? No, no, we"re just...uh... Professional?Tobias: You"re young, that"s what friend are! and naturally, ns was concerned entrusting other so an useful to perhaps reckless youths...but I problem no more! Hmph... We may be young, yet that doesn"t automatically mean we"re reckless!Tobias: Oh...no, no! You"ve gained it all wrong! I just meant that ns wasn"t sure exactly how old male Vogt would certainly take it. Ahh, yeah, that"s a great point.Tobias: What, you know Vogt? Yeah, we helped him out once he remained in a bit of a pickle. Let"s...just leave it at that, yeah.Tobias: Ha ha ha. He leave the door open again? either way, you understand what I"m talking about, the seems! Just try to understand where he"s comes from. Gift a lighthouse goalkeeper is lonely work, so a tiny eccentricity is to be expected. The lighthouse is an essential for ships to be able to navigate safely... For this reason the keeper"s work is a very big responsibility. Gotcha. So, really crucial work.Tobias: as soon as he was a fisherman, he offered to under plenty of drinks at Lavantar. Currently that he lives at the lighthouse, though, he hardly ever gets a opportunity to have actually his favorite drink. It"s pretty sad. I"d really choose to walk ahead with obtaining him what he wants, but...Tobias: ...well, I"ve probably said as well much. Either way, don"t allow the old man"s unpleasantness obtain to you, okay? Okay, got it. Is over there anything else prior to we go?Tobias: nothing in particular. As soon as you"re done, I"d like you to return here. Take care, and I"ll see you later.We can head straight for the lighthouse, yet last time Vogt provided us a the majority of grief about LOVE and COMPASSION, and damn it! Were walking to display him weve obtained what it takes, and hell have actually a mancrush top top Estelle instead of Cassius.
That"s right. We have actually to deliver something to Mr. Vogt, the lighthouse keeper.Primo: Is that so? i figured together much, indigenous the watch of the bag. The old man went come the lighthouse a long time ago. Ns guess he"s still doing okay... He supplied to come in below a lot, right?Primo: He"s a fisherman. The loves his drink and he loves come gamble. He particularly loves a good Azelia Rose, i beg your pardon is a cocktail made v fruit juice. He"s missed approximately this place... We"d love to view him again, but he never ever comes under to have a drink. It"s a rough task he has. Yeah...sounds like it.Primo: Oh, right... So, if it"s no trouble, would certainly you mind bringing that one? One what?Primo: Why, one of those cocktails, seeing together you"re heading to the lighthouse an" all. I"m no making a formal inquiry or anything. If it gets to it is in a pain to carry, you deserve to just intake it the end on the way. So, basically just dropping off supplies, right? No, ns don"t watch it being an issue. You"re together a gentleman. Ha ha...indeed, the is.Primo: Great! simply take it to the old man.Received
Vogt: Huh? Aren"t ya them youngsters from before...? Tee hee. It"s to be a while due to the fact that we to be last increase this way. and also today, we"re right here on one more job. A request came in to the Bracer Guild, so we"re right here to provide this maintain Kit. Right here ya go. It"s a small heavy, though, so be mindful lifting it!Handed over maintenance Kit.Vogt: Yep, everything"s right here all right. I evaluate ya bringin" this all the method over here. Oh, no worries. It"s our job, after all! Uh, on one more note, we actually have something else because that you.Vogt: Ohh? right here you are, sir. It was entrusted come our care by Primo, from Lavantar.Handed end Azelia Rose. Vogt: Oh, my, my, my! It"s Azelia Rose! I offered to drink this all the moment while munching on anchovy dishes.
Handed over Spicy Anchovy.Vogt: Ohh! OHHHH!! You"ve even lugged me some munchies come go with it! What kind bracers ya are! Man, this bring away me back. Exactly how are Primo and the others? space they law well? you bet! They"re all worried around you, too, Gramps. Work must be tough, therefore take care of yourself, okay? Don"t overexert those old bones of yours!Vogt: I...uh...won"t? Well, blunt or no, say thanks to ya because that the concern. I value that even an ext than anchovies! ...So walk this typical you"re startin" to understand what it means to own a caring soul? Uh...nope! no really! I"m no good with those touchy- feely concepts, ns guess.Vogt: Well, I assumed ya go a fine project today. O" course, you could always do better. Oh, that reminds me... Wait ideal there because that a moment, if ya would.Vogt: I have something for ya. Something i once offered a long, lengthy time ago... I"d be pleased as plum if you"d accept these for bringing all of these things out right here for me.

The job-related Helmet is one accessory that increases Defense by 3.Received Gladiator Headband.You only acquire the Gladiator Headband if you bring both the Azelia Rose and also the Anchovy. It increases CP recovery by 10%, i beg your pardon is really useful. Especially since there arent many good accesories. Whoa, awesome! Thanks! You certain we have the right to have these?Vogt: Absolutely! Not prefer I"ll be setup sail because that wild, exotic lands again anytime soon! ...Anyway, say thanks to ya because that bringing this stuff every the means up here.
