This is a guide for Chapter 2 of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, covering Eagus Wilderness in the Fornis Region.
Upon reaching the Fornis Region, you’ll begin at the northernmost part of the Eagus Wilderness. There are two paths the group can take, but they ultimately decide to go east.
From the entrance, head forward (south) until the area widen out. There should be a giant pillar in front; take a left here (east). Go around the mound until you reach the south, where Menno Arch–the next landmark–is.
By the way, if you go west from the beginning, you’ll reach Elaice Highway. However, the party will stop you from going there–and even if you could, it’s swarming with high level foes.
Standard Quest: Collapsed Traderpon
Anyway, at Menno Arch, there’s a Nopon who needs your help: Panepane. They need food items that have a sufficient amount of moisture. Eligible items include:
For each item you give, it will raise the progress bar along the top, by the value listed on the right. The rarer the item, the bigger the increase. Once it hits 100%, you’ll complete this quest. At this stage, you may want to conserve the rarer items and hand in the more common ones that you’ve got aplenty.
Afterwards, Panepane will make his way to the Hillside Ferronis Hulk, when he’s ready.

Towards the Oasis
From Menno’s Arch, you still have a long road ahead of you. If you head south, then south-east, you’ll reach Galghour’s Menhir. Past that is a sandy slope that you cannot traverse, which leads to Dannagh Desert. To progress, you need to go west from Menno’s Arch, towards the Wall of the Great Hand.
After admiring/exploring the great hand, continue south-east until the area widens out again. Now for the final stretch. Cut a path west-south-west towards the next destination. Not far from there, you’ll trigger an amusing cutscene. Then it’s not too far until you reach the actual destination: the oasis.
