Village Proper - When you appear, go up the ramp northwest from the scorched gate. Rotate the camera so that you can look over the stone fence and spot a treasure cube resting above some crates. Toss Mog over to recover the ‘How Things Were’ Gate Seal which enables Time Reversal in AF300 Oerba.

Now go to the big tree in the middle of the map and stand next to a mailbox northwest of the tree. Look on the lower ledge at the northeast corner of the nearby house to spot another treasure cube - toss Mog at it to recover the ‘Flight’ Gate Seal (unlocks Time Reversal in AF400 Academia).

Location of the ‘How Things Were’ Gate Seal (look at the top of the boxes on the left) (left). Location of ‘Flight’ Gate Seal (near moogle’s location) (right).

And now for the blasted spacetime distortions.

a) The spacetime distortion southeast from the scorched gate has 3 rounds of Crystal Bonds. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Sparkling Runestone (01/09) + 500CP !

b) The spacetime distortion west from the scorched gate (below the remains of the big sign) has 5 rounds of Crystal Bonds. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Thrilling Milestone (02/09) + 500CP !

c)The spacetime distortion north from the big tree has 4 rounds of Crystal Bonds. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Dewy Bloodstone (03/09) + 500CP !

d) The spacetime distortion west from the big tree has 2 rounds of Hands of Time. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Spinning Moonstone (04/09) + 500CP ! Afterwards go downstairs to the north and once you’re at the bottom of the stairs, Mog’s bobble lights up. Press R1 near his position to reveal a spacetime distortion.

e) A concealed spacetime distortion at the bottom of the stairs around the northwest house has 2 rounds of Hands of Time. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Lovely Starstone (05/09) + 500CP !

f) The spacetime distortion just above the stairs leading to the beach has 2 rounds of Tile Trials. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Astonishing Limestone (06/09) + 500CP ! Completing six spacetime distortions causes a new spacetime distortion to appear in front of the crystal gate (which you couldn’t access in the first place). Go downstairs to The Ashensand’s beach and Mog’s bobble will light up. Press R1 near his position to reveal a spacetime distortion.

g) A concealed spacetime distortion at the bottom of the stairs near the beach has 3 rounds of Tile Trials. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Bubbly Stone (07/09) + 500CP !

h) A spacetime distortion near the crystal gate has 3 rounds of Hands of Time. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Scorching Firestone (08/09) + 500CP ! Completing this spacetime distortion allows you to use the crystal gate, but it has also spawned another spacetime distortion south from your position in The Ashensand.

i) The spacetime distortion at the south end of the map has 5 rounds of Crystal Bonds. Your reward is AF300 OERBA FRAGMENT - Mossy Rosetta Stone (09/09) + 500CP !

Activate the crystal gate by expending your last Wild Artefact - it unlocks AF400 Oerba .
