This is a guide for Chapter 4 of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, covering the Odd Cliffside Way in the Pentelas Region.
Where to go in Old Cliffside Way
The Old Cliffside Way is a short path connecting the Great Cotte Falls with High Maktha Wildwood. When you first arrive here, the party will gaze upon Keves Castle in the distance. You’ll then witness a cutscene from within Keves Castle itself, showcasing their latest weapon of mass destruction.
When you regain control, make your way east along the path. Avoid going too close to the edge of the path, because there’s nothing down below; if you fall off, there aren’t any nearby landmarks for you to respawn. After a short while, you’ll arrive at the next story marker, near where there’s some water on the ground.
The gang will rest up at the Old Way Camp, which will be your first fast-travel spot since the previous camp. Now you can be more reckless if you want.
Once you’re ready, continue east up the steps near the campsite. Next, take a left and go through the gap to enter the building. From here, pass through the narrow corridor ahead, then proceed east through the wider corridor. At the end, you’ll emerge in a fairly open, square-shaped room.
Turn left and head for the north-west corner, where the pool is. Afterwards, turn right and approach the north-east corner, where the next story marker and the exit of this room is. Just before the story marker, turn right; head towards the south-east corner, then loot the nearby container. Now double back and trigger the story marker.
