When you come down from the Celsius into Macalania, a mission will begin rather quickly. It seems that some fiends are attacking the Travel Agency near the lake, so, before you come, be very prepared ! You will fight six consecutive battles with no healing in-between. (You can opt to Flee between battles, but you have only a few seconds to choose before the game defaults to the next fight.) After finishing the six fights (they’re just against random-encounter enemies, nothing serious), you’ll get a Berserker Dressphere , the Pride of the Sword Garment Grid , and an Al Bhed Primer ’.

As you leave the lakefront, pick up the X-Potion from the chest. If you paid off O’aka’s debt back in Chapters 1 & 2 (which means you got him aboard the ship in Chapter 1 or 2), enter the Travel Agency after O’aka enters it, then try leaving for another scene. Assuming that this happened, the shop is closed for Chapters 3 and 4, but reopens in Chapter 5. (It will reopen in Chapter 5 regardless of what you did. However, depending on how this was done, the quality of items supplied will change.)

Now, head into Macalania Woods, then return to the Lake to have Shinra install a CommSphere if it didn’t already happen. As you enter the woods in the Lake Road area, exit off to the northeast to one of the springs. There, you’ll see some musicians; speak with each of the trio and something appears. Examine it with X to get the Howling Wind Garment Grid . Return to the Lake Road area and use the exit off to the southeast to go to an area, then go south one more to find the area with the Gold Bracer chest. Continue south one more area to the southern entrance of the Woods; the second of Shinra’s CommSpheres will be installed here. Go north an area and you’ll easily find the NulFrost Ring chest as you go along.

You can choose to Fight or Flee (left) for the consecutive fights but there really is no point running away. In the woods, speak to the three musicians then the Spherimorph (right) to get the Garment Grid.

That about sums it up for Macalania.
