Diary Entry 32: Side Quests

 

Side Quest 1: The Last D Unit and the Light Wing Dragon

Our first side quest was to return to Uru, to acquire the last D Unit. We found it near the Sunken Southern Ruins cave, hanging from a mushroom-like relic. Once we acquired D Unit 05, my dragon transformed into the Light Wing dragon. He seemed more powerful than ever before! With the power of all his multiple forms combined, the dragon was certainly a force to be reckoned with.

I have written down the Locations of the D Units for my own reference.

D-Unit Locations:

D Unit 01: We found the First D Unit above the Excavation Site, inside the secret cave that lead to Conana's Nest.

D Unit 02: We found the second D Unit in the Valley, preferably, Canyon Deep Gulch.

D Unit 03: We found the third D Unit in the Garil Desert, found at the Worm Lair.

D Unit 04: We found the fourth D Unit in the Garil Desert at the Blue Ruins.

D Unit 05: We found the fifth D Unit at Uru, in the Sunken Southern Ruins.

D Unit 06: We found the sixth D Unit at Uru, in Deep North.

D Unit 07: We found the seventh D Unit in the Underground Ruins of Uru, B2F North.

D Unit 08: We found the eighth D Unit at the Underground Ruins of Uru, B4F.

D Unit 09: We found the ninth D Unit in the Forest of Zoah, inside the Forest of Zoah.

D Unit 10: We found the tenth D Unit in the Forest of Zoah, also inside the Forest of Zoah.

D Unit 11: We found the eleventh D Unit in the Tower, 14F North.

D Unit 12: We found the twelfth D Unit in the Tower, 14F North.

 

Side Quest 2: The Sunken Ship in the Garil Desert

My Dragon had grown considerably strong. His laser rank was now at level 6, so we went back to the Garil Desert to try and destroy the ancient ship, that was buried in the sand. The dragon succeeded, and proceeded to enter the ship. At the end of the sunken ship's passage, we acquired an ancient technique called "Plasma Swarm."

 

Side Quest 3: Dragon Pup Item Retrieval

Now that the dragon pup had full trust in me, he was a big help in acquiring items for the dragon and I. Back at the "Above Excavation Site," we played a game of dragon pup fetch. As we flew throughout the area, the little guy flew high into the sky, looking for items. We flew ahead of him, to leave him to his search, and returned shortly after. The dragon locked-on to him and acquired the item he had found. The dragon pup found multiple items. Here is the list of items he found:

1. Elixir Medis X 1
2.
Berserk Minor X 1
3.
Dual Blast Chip X 1
4.
Flash Chip X 1
5.
Dinys Chip X 1
6.
Elixir Maxis X 1
7.
Berserk Medis X 1
8.
Shield Chip X 1
9.
Gem Stone X 1
10.
Relic-Shoes X 1
11.
Full Elixir X 1
12.
Berserk Maxis X 1
13.
Recover X 1
14.
Power Chip X 1
15.
Coolia's Dung X 1
16.
Ambrosia X 1
17.
Armor Chip X 1
18.
Speed Chip X 1
19.
Relic-Shoes X 1
20.
Macran Jewel X 1

Unfortunately, after the dragon pup acquired these items from the "Above Excavation Site," he couldn't get any more items from places such as: the Valley, the Garil Desert, Uru, or the Forest of Zoah. But the twenty items he did get, helped us out greatly.

 

Side Quest 4: Destroying the Albertson Fans at Excavation Site # 4

We decided to return to Excavation site # 4, to have ourselves a little fun. To test out the dragon's new laser level, we destroyed all of the gigantic fans. It was a blast! Strangely, we also received items from these fans.

 

Side Quest 5: Azel's Reflection of the Past

I decided to bring Azel to the Excavation Site, where Craymen found her, one last time. When we arrived, she quickly ran ahead of me. She stood there reflecting on the past. She said before Craymen woke her, she saw many places with Atolm, but never walked the land. She was also still afraid of the Tower, but said she couldn't be afraid forever. She needed to know what truly happened, and we would surely find the answer.

 

Side Quest 6: Kou's Offer

I decided to return to the caravan to say good-bye to everyone, and to check up on Fei and Eknak. Eknak was as lively as ever, completely recovered from Meccania Fever. His father An'jou, had found an airship that had recently crashed. Feelings of fear began to cross my mind, as I realized it was Bezer's ship. That fear turned to sadness, as I learned from Kou, that Bezer didn't survive the crash. Upon talking to Kou for a while, she eventually made a most striking offer. She asked me if I would like to take Fei's hand in marriage! I was speechless! I didn't know what to say. She asked me to think it over. Maybe I would choose to settle down, after my journey had ended. Before leaving, Fei told me she would be waiting for me.

Side Quest 7: The Villatuya Fruit and the Battles Against the Golia Hunter and Golia Tracker

We returned to the Forest of Zoah, and discovered a Villatuya plant. It looked similar to the Kuo plants, we had found in the Garil Desert. The plant was found to the far north. It was bright blue and gave off a strange yellow fruit. The dragon ate this fruit right away, and while performing a role, his speed increased to an even greater extent. After getting the Villatuya fruit, we were ambushed by creatures called Golia Hunters, and Golia Trackers. The Golia Tracker attacked us while flying near the three Naga Cocoons, found around the lower portion of the area. The Golia Hunter attacked us while flying past a patch of vegetation, located to the center of the three Naga Cocoons. These creatures nearly took our lives and I'm glad to be standing here today, to tell my story.

 

Final Side Quest: The Legendary Blue Dragon: Solowing

Inside the Forest of Zoah, the dragon was able to enter that strange locked door. This door lead us to a place called the Red Ruins. Directly in front of us, was the shrine Rhagg and Perez were talking about, back at the Seekers' Stronghold. We activated four rotating artifacts surrounding the gigantic central shrine, that in turn, opened corresponding doors. We first entered the southern door, to find a white relic. We proceeded to destroy it.

Next, we entered the eastern door, and destroyed another white relic. Destroying this relic, caused a giant, central, white ruin, to rise upward. We passed through this ruin only to find it brought us to the Garil Desert, at night. The desert was silent and peaceful. There was nothing more to see, so we went back to the Red Ruins.

This time, we explored the northwestern chamber. Found within this chamber, was an empty pedestal. I placed the dragon crest we had received from inside Shellcoof on this pedestal, and to my amazement, the baby dragon pup merged with the crest and my dragon! This turned my dragon into the legendary blue dragon, Solowing! My dragon's voice echoed, "Now my soul is complete, my name is Lagi."

With all of our side quests completed, we departed for the Tower. We would have to face Sestren in the final battle, to free mankind from the will of the Ancients. Sestren would now have to face Winged Death!
