As with your previous trip here, the main feature are the treasures found all throughout the Thunder Plains in easy-to-spot chests. The only exception is the Samurai’s Honor Grid.

For that, begin by speaking with the Al Bhed kneeling near the southern lightning rod in the southern Plains. Basically, you will have to approach a lightning rod (green square on the map) and examine it with X. You then have to press a certain button sequence thirty times, with three mess-ups allowed - you must also not take too long to complete the sequence. The sequence varies from tower to tower, but the general idea depends on the character - for Yuna, you must memorize a pattern; for Rikku, you must press the buttons that are displayed; and for Paine, you must enter the falling buttons. The only exception is one of the final towers for Yuna in which you press the buttons in the reverse order that you are given.

Speak to the man kneeling down here to initiate the quest (left). Yuna, Rikku and Paine all have unique input methods of calibrating so choose whichever one you find easiest (right).

Go and speak with the Al Bhed in the Travel Agency when you’re done and you will earn the Samurai’s Honor Garment Grid . (You don’t have to complete all ten - just finish five and attempt all of them once.) Also note that getting all ten calibrations will help you get a Ribbon in Chapter 5!
