|**Assorted Flowers** | **Sopheria Seeds** | Life Bottle x2|
|Holding the Line|
Watch the scene when you return to town and then head to the Lhant manor for another scene. Grab the Assorted Flowers from the sparkling spot in the manor gardens and then head to Asbel’s room and take a nap for another scene. Now head to the study for more scenes and then you can finally head toward the Border Fortress.
Before you leave you should make sure each of your characters has some protection from Poison. You can also Dualize the Common Metal and Water of Absolution to create Moist Crystal and then dualize the crystal with an Iron Sword to make the much more powerful Katana.
Note: Common Metal, as you will find out, is in multiple different recipes and I suggest you use at least 1 mixer slot to duplicate this item.
By now you should also have a ton of Shard’s to experiment with. They all add bonus’ to your gear somehow and are replaceable, so there is no need to worry about screwing something up.
Enter North Lhant Road and follow the path until you get a scene and then backtrack to Lhant Hill’s entrance for the Holding the Line skit. Now continue toward the new area of North Lhant Road, where the Turtlez waits, and head down to the beach for a chest with Life Bottle x2 in the corner.
You can now zone into the Seaside Cavern near the Turtlez.
