There’s something else to do before departing. Depending on whom you received your Enthusiasm from, one more person should be left with some of it. Check both south and north Ding Dong Dell for a glowing green dot and talk to that person to get a bit of Enthusiasm for the road (with the ‘Take Heart’ spell, as you know by now).
Before continuing on with the story, we also have one more chest that we can open now that we couldn’t earlier, and we need to tell Old Father Oak our progress, so from the World Map, make your way to the far north and re-enter The Deep Dark Wood.
First off, go ahead and make your way all the way north to Old Father Oak, who will give you [MILK CHOCOLATE x5] to reward your growing familiars.
Now is an excellent time to give your familiars some treats. The Milk Chocolate bars will increase their attack, and by now you should have plenty of other treats for both Mite and Thumbelemur. You don’t have to spend all your treats at once (and probably can’t anyway), but it’s worth your while to at least give them some of it.
Head back to the fork and go northeast, following the path for a long while until you come to the fork just after jumping over the rocks in the stream. To your southwest is that blue chest that we had to skip earlier, so make your way up to it now and choose ‘Spring Lock’ from your Spell Menu to open it and obtain a [CREAMY FLAN].
That’s all you can do here right now, so let’s get back to the story. Make your way back to the entrance and head out to the World Map. Our destination is the Golden Grove to the far southwest of the map, so make the long trek there.
