Xenoblade Chronicles 3

A Difficult Transition

Vincent Lau

This is a guide for the “A Difficult Transition” standard quest in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. How to convince Fox from doing something rash.

How to Start the “A Difficult Transition” Quest

(1 of 2) Gather the two Info Fragments, then Discuss them at a rest area.

You can begin the “A Difficult Transition” Quest when Chapter 4 rolls in. It may also be necessary to complete other Colony 9 Quests first, such as Lean Times in Colony 9.

When you’re back at Colony 9, look for two Info Fragments related to “Colony 9 Food Issues”.

Info Fragment Locations in Colony 9

Info Fragment Map Marker Location
Colony 9 Food Issues (1) Map Marker Colony 9 Assembly Square
Colony 9 Food Issues (2) Map Marker Opposite the Colony 9 Barracks

After gathering both fragments, Discuss these at a rest area, such as the Colony 9 Barracks or Canteen. This will begin the quest.

How to Complete the “A Difficult Transition” Quest

(1 of 4) First, get some intel from Camilla.

Step 1. Speak to Camilla at Colony 9

To begin with, pay a visit to Camilla, who runs the Colony 9 Commissary. She’ll mention being worried about Fox.

Step 2: Speak to Fox at Colony 9

Next, check in on Fox and his group, located a short distance south from the Colony 9 Canteen. Turns out Fox is elsewhere–and likely somewhere dangerous.

Step 3: Catch up with Fox at Gura Flava Lowlands

Fast-travel to the Gura Flava Camp, then head north towards the slope that leads to Melnath’s Shoulder. Near the bend, you’ll find Fox. Now, you must carefully choose your words. When prompted, pick the following for the best result:

  1. “What are you doing here?”
  2. “This is a dangerous place.”
  3. “…to help Camilla out?”

In any case, Fox will wisely turn back and this quest will end. But Colony 9’s troubles are still far from over.
