This is a guide for the Alexandria’s Birthday Standard Quest in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
How to Start the Alexandria’s Birthday Standard Quest
Make sure you have finished Alexandria’s Ascension Quest, Inescapable Past, before you try to get this quest. Once you have, go to Colony Iota to seek out two pieces of Info from the residents there. One of the pieces will be by the Canteen, while the other will be southeast of the Colony Iota Base Entrance landmark. This will get you the Alexandria’s Birthday Info, so discuss it to begin the actual quest.
How to Complete the Alexandria’s Birthday Standard Quest
The party discusses Alexandria’s birthday, and how she uses a fake one. Alexandria decides to have a chat with Chickadee about the whole situation, only she can’t get a hold of her, meaning you will have to track her down. You will need to speak with some NPCs around the colony to gain some clues about Chickadee’s whereabouts.
- Rhyza (Found in the back of the colony, on northern end)
- Sequoia (Inside tent in colony)
- Colony Iota Soldier (Just south of the northern gate)
- Chelle (In Torus Hollow, at the Hidden Stash)
After speaking to all four NPCs, you will receive the Chickadee’s Location Info, so discuss it at a rest spot and Alexandria will finally chime in about a possible location where Chickadee could be found. She says there’s a rare flower that grows on Yunnae’s Rise, so that will be your destination. If you’ve never been there, it’s the area to the north of the Purus Palecolumn landmark. Note that there will be a marker just east of that landmark, which you must trigger to witness a short scene that shows Chickadee’s location.
It’s best to start from the Visura Parkland Camp, go south a little bit, then make the U-turn to head north. Go through Ag’s Talon, and you will eventually reach some vines to climb, allowing you to reach Yunnae’s Rise. Continue south until you reach the edge of the area, which is where you will find Chickadee being harassed by some Feris. They are level 52 and there’s three of them, but they are really nothing more than normal enemies. After rescuing Chickadee, there will be one final scene.
