|Chapter 4||Marsalim||11,000 Leaves, Alluring Ribbon|
In the square of Marsalim, you will find an Old Aristocrat, who has seen and done a lot of things in his life. Despite this, he is yearning for something more. There are two solutions for this Side Story, although only one seems to be viable. The first solution will have you fighting Swordsman Yuri, who is standing next to the old man. He has a strength of ten, so he is definitely a challenging battle. He is capable of dealing 400+ damage with normal attacks at 750+ defense, with other skills dealing four times as much. To add on to this, Stunning Strike has a chance of inflicting Unconscious, which is a big deal.
The easier solution for this quest involves going to Grandport. Once you arrive, look for the Passionate Peddler in front of the Provisioner, who has something called the Tales from a Faraway Land on his person. Using either Tressa or Therion, Steal/Purchase the item from the peddler, then bring it back to the Old Aristocrat to finish.
