This is a guide for the Unsolved Riddle Standard Quest in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
How to Start the Unsolved Riddle Standard Quest
The trigger to start this quest is located in the southwestern corner of the City, but if you try to go there from the actual main portion, you will find a locked gate keeping you out. In order to get into this little area, you will need to head to the northwestern corner of the City and climb the ladder there. Once you reach the top, just follow the path to the south, until you eventually reach Ribelly Plaza.
How to Complete the Unsolved Riddle Standard Quest
It seems that the little kids are going on a treasure hunt and they want your help. The clues will lead to three boxes, which are all in the City, or rather, each one of you will get a single clue. Your clue is “At the base of 15 lights,” which is just as it sounds. Once you regain control, there will be a number of markers related to this quest, all but one leading to dead ends and a wrong answer. The locked door that prevented you from directly reaching Ribelly Plaza can be opened from inside, so you don’t have to keep coming from the indirect route.
The one marker you want is located above the Michiba Canteen, but at first glance, it’s unclear how to get up there. On the western side of the building, you can go behind it to find a ladder, leading to the roof, where you can drop down to the light source and obtain the Cross-Stamped Box. Return to the Ribelly Plaza and you will receive some more clues, leading to another little treasure hunt. You will also learn the answer to this little riddle, as you need to head to the Residential Quarter. This is located above the gathering of magnifying glasses on the south end of the City. Walk through the open doorway, then enter the marked door for another cutscene, as well as one final clue to this whole treasure hunt.
Gigi already seems to know the answer to this clue, as it’s the person who started this whole thing, and the “tribute” is a Torpedo Wrap. Just east of the Serene Square landmark is the Torpedo Wrapsmith, so purchase one from him and it’s time to find this “Founder.” The person is located above the Michiba Canteen, so climb the ladder like earlier and approach the door for one final scene.
