When you enter Macalania, go along the path to the Hypello. Speak with him, telling him “ Sure, why not? “, then go to the second of the spring areas. From the entrance area with the Save Sphere, that’s north three and northeast one more area. Speak with Bayra there and you’ll need to track down a musical troupe.

The remaining two members of the troupe (Donga and Pukutak) have run off somewhere, taking the form of butterflies. In this area, you should easily find two of the rings. Go back to the previous area, then go southeast another. As you go along this path, you’ll see a third ring of butterflies; you’ll fight a forced battle on the way. Continue south for another forced battle and you’ll eventually end up at the Woods’ entrance.

Use the Save Sphere, then go east an area, south one, and southeast one more; grab the ring here and you’ll be teleported back to Bayra. Don’t speak with him, though! Go back to the Lake Road area and go southwest from there; you’ll find the final butterflies in this area. Jump over the gap nearby, then go up the incline and, once near the ring, jump through the butterflies. Backtrack to Bayra and speak with him to end the mission. You’ll end up receiving the Haste Bangle , as well as setting up a Garment Grid to obtain later on in Chapter 3.

Choose “ No “ after this to not leave Macalania so you can still do things. Speak with Tromell, as mentioned at the start of the section, if you don’t have the Full Throttle Special Dressphere and the Unerring Path Grid. Also return to the Hypello you spoke to near the start and you’ll get a Bitter Farewell Garment Grid and - only if applicable - the Minerva’s Plate accessory.

You can find rings of butterflies scattered around Macalania Woods. Approach them to find the lost musicians.

Finally, don’t forget the Silver Bracer north of the entrance area, and the Icy Gleam in the area beyond there; they’re pretty easy to spot. Continue north two more areas to the Lake Road, then go northwest and along to the front of the Travel Agency (brrr) to find two Hi-Potions . If you ended up not getting O’aka back here in Chapter 1, see Chapter 1 - Macalania for details, you can still spot and follow him here. Also feel free to shop in the Macalania Travel Agency’s shop, but nothing has changed in terms of merchandise.
