Remaining Days

Day 9

Hope’s gift today is the Heartstealer garb which is a very nice garb with handy auto-abilities. Return to Luxerion and advance/complete Buried Passion and The Angel’s Tears . You can also open all highways via the Canvas of Prayers "Roadworks" quests. See the section in the guide for more details. These highways offer consistent access to the large-scale enemies for each region so if you are planning to exterminate them for the Last One or farm them, this is a good solution.

Day 9 is your final opportunity to farm Level 2 abilities from monsters (or rarely Level 1 abilities) that you wish to Level Boost. You will need a good number of them and some abilities will become invaluable in the final couple of days. The following table details how many you need and which enemies drop them:

**Lv 2 Ability** **Amount Needed** **Dropped By...**
Attack 6 Gorgonopsid (Dead Dunes), Rafflesia (Jagd Woods)
Beat Down 4 Desdemona (when staggered, Yusnaan Industrial Area)
Heavy Slash 6 Gorgonopsid (Dead Dunes), Anubys (exterior areas from 16:00 - 18:00)
Blitz 5 Reaver (highways)
Flamestrike 5 Zaltys, Dreadnought (highways)
Froststrike 5 Miniflan (Wildlands, Grasslands)
Sparkstrike 5 Vali (Wildlands)
Galestrike 5 Dryad (Jagd Woods, Rocky Crag)
Heat Blitz 5 Dreadnought (highways)
Electric Blitz 5 Hanuman (Wildlands)
Aero Blitz 5 Zomok (highways)
Ruin 5 Meonekton (exterior areas from 04:00 - 06:00)
Fire 5 Gremlin (common), Ectopudding (Eremite Plains, Temple of the Goddess)
Fira 7 Zaltys (highways)
