Chapter 8 - Seaworthy

Verinas Outpost - Ravatogh

To the Verinas Outpost

When you’re ready to get questing, get in the Regalia and set your destination for Verinas Mart - Ravatogh, which is down the road west of the Rachsia Bridge Fishing Spot. Along the way you’ll pass The Maidenwater Parking Spot and the Lambath Haven Campground, which is north of the road.

If you stop and rest at the latter you’ll be pestered in the morning by Gladio, who wants you to help him gather flowers for Iris. D’aww… how can you turn that down? You need merely venture into the rocky hills to the north-west to secure the flowers Gladiolus wants for an easy 20 AP.

After the Lambath Haven Campground you’ll pass by the Ravatoghan Trail Parking Spot, but all in all, the trip to the Verinas Mart - Ravatogh should be pretty uneventful.

Note: (Photo Op: Volcano): As usual, Prompto might beg you for a photographic diversion as you approach the Verinas Station - Ravatogh. Oblige him for a bit of experience.

Objective Reward
For indulging Prompto EXP 300

Verinas Outpost - Ravatogh

When you reach the Verinas Outpost - Ravatogh you’ll find that it’s a fairly ordinary outpost, complete with the obligatory Rent-a-Chocobo station, a Caravan for your sleeping needs and a few shops. The Culless Munition - Ravatogh branch doesn’t sell much more than Aranea’s imperials in Vesperpool:

Culless Munitions - Ravatogh

Items Price
Ice Brand 1,500 Gil
Hardedge 1,500 Gil
Ice Spear 1,500 Gil
Assassin's Daggers 1,500 Gil
Rebellion 1,500 Gil
Thunder Shield 1,500 Gil
Flame Shield 1,500 Gil
Carbon Bangle 2,000 Gil
Heliodore Bracelet 2,000 Gil
Talisman 800 Gil
Knight's Anklet 2,500 Gil
Bulletproof Vest 2,000 Gil

But it’s worth stopping by the Erupto Eats Restaurant for intel, including the location of The Rock of Ravatogh dungeon and the Owlyss Haven Campground within. You can also buy the Smoked Dualhorn Shank meal (4,800 Gil) for some handy buffs and some inspiration for the "Smoked Behemoth" recipe. Shame that Ignis has to use Behemoth Tenderloin to get the same effect… Finally, of course, check out the local hunts, which may be worth doing, since they’re all in the Ravatogh area.

Hunts - Verinas Outpost - Ravatogh

Hunt Name Hunt Level Rank (Stars)
Deadly Extermination 37 ***
Vernias Mart Under Threat 38 ***
Red Lightning of Ravatogh 44 ***
Pointiest Pins in the Volcano 47 ***
*Feathered Giant of the Firesmoke 67 ****
*Only available after completing "The Perfect Cup".

Note: The hunt "Deadly Extermination" will pit you against three Soldier Wasps and three Killer Wasps, which can drop Barbed Scythes , the item you need to upgrade the Plunderers daggers you can get from Tony. You can also pick up the "Verinas Mart Under Threat" hunt to tackle some Wyverns, which will forfeit Wyvern Wings when they die, an item Sania will be asking for soon enough. You’ll likely get both of these components by just running through Ravatogh, though, so you don’t really need to take on these hunts to get them - it’s just another option to find these foes at a fixed location.

The Smoked Dualhorn Shank will give you some nice combat buffs and teach Ignis a new recipe (left). Taking on the hunt "Deadly Extermination" will allow you ot get some Barbed Scythes (right).

Finally, there’s the Verinas Mart, which gives this outpost its name. If you want to keep the Regalia spick and span and have way more Gil than sense you can buy the Reinforced Fiberglass Coating for a hefty 8,000 Gil. For a much more modest you can add the Final Fantasy XII OST by buying Memories of FFXII . You also shouldn’t neglect to pick up the Key Item Iron Shelf Recipes, Vol. 6 , which teaches Ignis the "Sweet Saltwater Crustacean Curry" recipe.

Verinas Mart - Ravatogh (Items)

The Professors Protégé - Wyvern

Once you’re done shopping head north-west past a watch tower and adjacent water tower to find Sania, who naturally wants you to pester some indigenous creatures… for science! This time she’s got her eyes set on some Wyvern Wings, which are commonly dropped by Wyverns. These flying pests infest the Rock of Ravatogh dungeon, and it’s improbable that you won’t obtain one at some point when you explore the volcano… or beforehand, if you complete the "Verinas Mart Under Threat" hunt. You’ll be reminded when you explore the Rock of Ravatogh, but the quest reward is listed below, for when you get around to bringing your grisly trophy back to Sania.

Objective Reward
For giving Sania a Wyvern Wing EXP 8,000 / Earth Pendant

Now, for a bit of loot. There’s a variety of loot spots around, but most of them contain trivial treasure, so let’s focus on somewhat more noteworthy items. From Sania head east and search near a large lightpost to find a loot spot (Warm Uppers). Return to Sania and continue north-west to find two hot springs. Along the western shore of the further (north-western) pool you’ll find a second loot spot (Ruby Bracelet). On the eastern coast of the south-eastern pool you can find a third loot spot (Fire Crest).

Sania will be waiting at the Verinas Station - Ravatogh, eager to impose another quest on you (left). Seek out Saphyrtails to appease the Culless Munitions vendor in Lestallum (right).

Sting Your Praises

One last bit of business is left before you head into the Rock of Ravatogh, a long overdue quest from the Culless Munitions - Lestallum vendor. From the Verinas Outpost head north-east to find a group of Saphyrtails, which are higher-level versions of Reapertails. Exterminate them, gather their Scorpion Stingers, then return to the weapons merchant at your leisure to finish this quest and earn another discount at this store… which is of rather dubious benefit by now.

Objective Reward
For harvesting a Scorpion Stinger EXP 4,000
