|Chapter 2-3||Saintsbridge||6,600 Leaves, Invigorating Nut, Resistant Nut|
The NPC for this Side Story can be found in the southern section of Saintsbridge, on the bridge towards the western side. He is worried that the water level is rising and it might never stop. To complete this, you will need either Alfyn or Cyrus. Exit Saintsbridge, to East Saintsbridge Traverse, and travel to the save point. From there, head south until you see a man standing by the river. Use Alfyn or Cyrus to Inquire/Scrutinize the Assiduous Scholar and obtain the Early Ice Thawing information, then return to the worried man to finish the quest.
