Krosse City

Claude and Rena will arrive at Krosse City late at night, so head to the marker for now to go rest at the inn.

On the next day, you can check on the map to see your next objective. You can go around the city first and check the shops for anything that you fancy to get, then you can head towards the objective.

Along the way, you’ll pass by a person with three eyes as a limited time event. The interaction is short, but we’ll be seeing the same guy later one.

Krosse Castle

Once you arrive at the Krosse Castle, go to the receptionist to the left side. After talking to the receptionist, you’ll see a lot more markers pop up. You can talk to all of these marked people (talking to all of them is not required0, and you can also take the time to head towards the west corridor to reach the armory where you can get a Leather Helmet and a Wooden Shield.

Head to the staircase and you can inspect the Unique Spot – Portrait of Prince Clauzer to get 100 EXP and Portrait A. Head towards the room to the left to find a chest containing 400 Fol.

To progress, head to the top of the stairs and talk to the guards so that they can let you in. You’ll then be talking to the King of Krosse who recognizes Rena. You can then ask him more information about the Sorcery Globe. After the talk, you will then be given a Travel Permit to continue on to your journey, and 600 Fol.

Head back out into the city and to the city center to see another cutscene. Here you’ll meet Celine Jules, one of the characters that you can recruit, arguing with someone who is accusing her for stealing. After taking care of the argument, Celine later reveals that she’s a treasure enthusiast and have heard about the two getting a special permission from the king.

Celine then offers her help since she has a map that she plans to follow to seek a treasure and she thinks that having the two around will help her greatly. You’ll then get the Treasure Map that she has, as well has have Celine herself join your party.

Afterwards, you’ll learn more about Item Creation and Specialties, as well as Guild Missions.

It’s best to check out the Guild at the west side of the town and accept some Guild Missions to get some additional SP and strengthen your characters for the journey ahead.

Krosse City – Private Actions

Now that we have Celine as a guest member for now, it’s best to check up on the available Private Actions that are available. These Private Actions are available and can be triggered in some, if not all of the towns, cities, and special locations that you have visited, so make sure to check them via the fast travel system from time to time.
