There will be some stronger enemies that will give a slight advantage in leveling up plus a couple of chests found. Afterward, head to Elena’s pod but will notice that she is missing some parts.

Fast travel to Larcasse Weald and return to the pod that Raymond was in. Another fight will begin as you approach it. then, collect the parts inside the pod and warp back to Elena’s pod.

Suddenly, Living Armors and Puppet Masters will arrive and try to block your path on returning back to Elena. Defeat them and reapproach the pod. But, an unexpected encounter will occur as a man with horns appears and challenges you. Defeat first his minions and then deal with him. Be wary as he possesses ice attacks and his melee attacks pack a punch. Use Midas as much as possible to let him take potshots while he tries to hit you. Once all is done, Elena will join the team and will lead off to the next mission.

Rescuing the Ydas Crew: Laeticia Path

In Laeticia’s path, players will need to head to Larcette Village and ask around about a comet that came crashing down.
