Big Friendly Friend

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on how to complete the standard quest, Big Friendly Fiend in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

How to Start Big Friendly Friend

This quest can be obtained by first overhearing info about Yuzet and then discussing it at the rest spot in Colony 30 Canteen. Following the discussion, you’ll need to talk to Yuzet, who can be found in the Colony 30 Maintenance Bay landmark in Colony 30. You’ll need to have first liberated Colony 30 and unlocked Valdi as a party member before being able to speak to Yuzet. From there, you’ll then have to give over specified materials to a nopon called Repapa, who’s found nearby Yuzet.

Start Big Friendly Friend by speaking to Yuzet.

How to Complete a Big Friendly Fiend

Below, you’ll find information on each of the different builds you can provide materials for to complete this quest. There’s a progress bar atop the page and this gets filled by completing material lists. The different builds give different % progress completion and surprisingly, you can actually complete the same builds multiple times to fill the progress bar!

In fact, it’s definitely advised that you focus your efforts on the easily collectible materials over those that’d be found in harder to reach places. For example, the Stinger Jagplate and the Splendor Stinger are both easy to complete. Stinger Piles, which are required for both, can be found in the immediate area outside Colony 30 and you can continue to fast travel to force materials to respawn. It’d be advised you go for x2 Stinger Jagplate builds (2x10% progress completion) and x2 Splendor Stinger (2x40%) to fill the bar.

Stinger Piles can be found really easily!

Splendorshell are rare but pretty easy to find if you scout out the river in Millick Field in the Aetia region. You’ll be able to get x4 reasonably quickly.

Then for the Stinger Jagplate build, you can find Jagron Fossils commonly near Magglia Lake and the surrounding area. Plate Pathos can be found quite easily around the Aetia region, specifically south of Colony 9 and along the river in Millick Meadows!

Splendorshell and Plate Pathos can be found along the river in Millick Meadows.

Once you’ve reached 100% progress bar completion, you’ll finish up this specific quest. However, you’ll still have to fill out material lists for Repapa to continue building things for Valdi and the colony!

For this quest, however, you’ll earn the following:
