To reach the next city, head in a north-westerly direction from Miasma Woods. If you’re reeling from the woodland creatures, you may want to set encounters to zero until you reach the next inn. Once you enter Florem, Land of Radiant Flowers, it becomes apparent that you’ve arrived at Ringabel’s dream town.
However it’s not all roses and sunshine here, as our gang soon discover… Agnes suggests they visit Florem’s Matriarch to learn about the realm’s current affairs. The Matriarch’s abode is located in the next area–head in a north-easterly direction, while in the city, and you’ll find it marked by an orange exclamation mark.
Inside, the Matriarch welcomes Agnes and company and speaks of her woes at Florem’s current, pitiful state. Worse of all, the vestal of water and Agnes’s dear friend, Olivia, has gone into hiding. Although the chances don’t look stellar, maybe the Temple of Water will offer some clues as to her whereabouts.
Trip Around Town
While you’re in the city, relax, check out the sights and stock up on items and new gear. Inside the Matriarch’s home, you can find a Tengu Yawn and Star Pendant if you inspect the back area and the area to the right. Outside the Matriarch’s, check the right side of the large stage up ahead to find a Lillith’s Kiss.
In the initial area; inspect the area left of the magic store to retrieve a Bomb Fragment. Inside the magic store itself you can buy Level 3 White Magic and Black Magic–grab a couple of these if you can afford them (prioritize Cura, Fira and Thundara). After you’ve checked your supplies (and, if you’re Ringabel, checked out all the ladies), exit Florem and travel west to the Temple of Water.
