Quests Available After Reaching Hidden Machina Village

Food Delivery
Client Rewards Affinity
Natalia 7800G, 5500 EXP, Gemini Boots None

Once you have reached Hidden Village you will be able to receive this quest from Natalia. She will ask you to deliver food to Theo who is at the base of Digit 2. The base is found southwest of the Digit 2 Landmark. You will have to climb down a tall wall to reach the small platform that Theo and Zakort can be found on. Once you have spoken to Theo, he will give you a Deep-Sea Fish to return to Natalia as a gift. Return to Natalia to complete the quest.


For My Loved One...
Client Rewards Affinity
Zarkort 10000G, 7600 EXP, Alcyone Bottoms None

After you have picked up Food Delivery and spoken to Theo, you will be able to access this quest from Zarkort, who is sat right next to Theo. He will ask you to collect Tears of the Sky from Distant Fingertip. Distant Fingertip is a Secret Area on the Fallen Arm and it can be reached by climbing up Digit 2. A word of warning though: the climb to the Secret Area is quite long so you'll be wall climbing and walking up ramps for a short while. To obtain the Tears of the Sky it must also be thunderstorming, which is a slightly rarer weather condition than just rain. If you reach the top of the fingertip whilst it is sunny, beware of the level 90 unique monster, Wicked Sallos who will attack you on sight. Fortunately, he does disappear in rain and thunderstorm conditions, so he won't pose an issue to grabbing the Tears of the Sky. If you're having issues getting the thunderstorm conditions naturally, then you may want to take the time to use the Change Time function in the Main Menu. You can fast forward time in regular intervals until you obtain the thunderstorm weather. Once you finally have the Tears of the Sky, head back to Zarkort to complete the mission.

The Distant Fingertip is quite the climb up from Digit 2!

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Zarkort's next quest, To My Loved One....


To My Loved One...
Client Rewards Affinity
Zarkort 13600G, 10000 EXP, Alcyone Top None

This quest is available immediately after you have completed For My Loved One.... Zarkort will ask you to take the Tear of the Sky to Bozatrok who is at the Machina Refuge in Mechonis Field. Although you can pick this quest up as soon as you have completed For My Loved One..., you cannot complete this quest until you have reached Mechonis Field in the Main Story quest. The Machina Refuge is a Secret Area that can only be reached via the slide from the top of the Fourth Floor near the Patella Exhaust. You will have to land on the second platform from the top, and then walk north before climbing up into a hidden room. Bozatrok will be in there, alongside some other Machina troops. Once you speak to her, you will complete the quest.

Machina Refuge is a Secret Area in Mechonis Field.

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Bozatrok's quest, Best Boots.


I want to be a Homs!
Client Rewards Affinity
Rakzet 12000G, 8200 EXP, Gemini Gauntlets None

To access this quest, you must have Natalia registered on the affinity chart. Rakzet has told you that he wants to be a Homs! He has asked that you collect some items for him so that he can do so.

Material | Dropped by | Location 3 Poisonous Coral | Collectable | Fallen Arm 2 Silver Lexos Hearts | Sesna Lexos | Mechonis Wound (Valak Mountain) 3 Pretty Flamii Legs | Kukukoro Flamii | Wreckage Beach (Fallen Arm)

Once you have picked up all the materials required, head back to Rakzet to complete the quest.

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Rakzet's next quest, Powerless.


Powerless
Client Rewards Affinity
Rakzet Fallen Arm (Junks) 06:00 - 06:00

After you have completed I want to be a Homs!, you should be able to activate this quest from Rakzet. He will ask you to protect the village by defeating some enemies! You must defear 4 Prado Upas and 4 Aura Antols, which can both be found in the 5th Pulse Zone. Then, after defeating them, you'll need to fight 4 M35 Prototypes and 4 Lampo Ponios, which can both be found near Digit 1 Crevasse and the Giant Mechon Debris landmark. Ponios can only be found during the day though. Once you have defeated all the required enemies, head back to Rakzet to complete the quest.

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Rakzet's next quest, Power Up!.


Power Up!
Client Rewards Affinity
Rakzet 14500, 10500 EXP, Sleek Oil, Sleek Trunks 2✰

Once you have completed Powerless and reached 2✰ affinity with Hidden Village residents, you will be able to pick this quest up from Rakzet. He wants to be able to protect the village himself, so he has asked you to fetch him 5 Silver Antol Fibres that are dropped by Antols across Fallen Arm. The quest objective specifies that the drop is "very rare", which is a bit discomforting, however, there are a fair few Antols around 5th Pulse Zone. They'll all likely be a few levels lower than you as well, so farming won't be too tedious. You can fast travel to landmarks to respawn and reset enemies so you will have an endless supply of Antols to farm until you have the 5 Silver Antol Fibres. There are also an abundance of Antol near Digit 1, southwest of the Giant Mechon Debris. You should be wary trying to defeat these Antols, as they are protected by a level 80 unique monster, Powerful Eligos. You will probably have a faster and easier time farming near the 5th Pulse Zone. You could also trade for Silver Antol Fibre from Shilx if you have a 3✰ affinity with Hidden Village. Reaching 3✰ affinity is far easier in the Hidden Village than the larger areas like Colony 9 and Frontier Village so it shouldn't take you too long to reach it if you do most of the side quests available to you. Once you have the required materials, return to Rakzet to complete the quest.


Fixing a Broken Door
Client Rewards Affinity
Rizaka 11500G, 8500 EXP, Phys Def Down IV None

To access this quest, you must have Eleqa registered on the Hidden Village affinity chart. Rizaka's door is very old and broken, she has asked you to collect the required materials to fix it. She needs 5 Digital Filaments and 2 Dated Frames dropped by M56 Prototypes. Digital Filaments are a common collectable found across the Fallen Arm. Dated Frames are a bit of an uncommon drop, but M56 Prototypes are found in abundance around Digital One Crevasse and north east of the Connecting Bridge landmark, so farming won't be too tedious. Once you have all of the materials collected, head back to Rizaka to complete the quest.

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Rizaka's second quest, The Wilted Flower


The Wilted Flower
Client Rewards Affinity
Rizaka 12300G, 9000 EXP, Lightning Attack IV, Mechonis Key 1✰

After you have completed a few other side quests from Hidden Village residents to raise affinity, and have completed Fixing a Broken Door, you will be able to pick up this quest from Rizaka. She will ask you to help her water her wilted flowers. She needs you to fetch Pure Water, which can be found at Zakt Spring south of the Wreckage Beach landmark. Return to Rizaka with the water and she will tell you that she also needs 5 Electric Upa Tears from Prado Upas on the Fallen Arm. They can be found specifically in the 5th Pulse Zone south of the Ulna Passage landmark. In the same area there will also be a level 57 Unique Upa-type monster called Affluent Beleth. It is advised that you do try to defeat it as it will 100% drop Electric Upa Tears, and the drop is slightly rarer from normal Prado Upas. Once you have 5 Electric Upa Tears, head back to Rizaka to complete the quest.

The Affluent Beleth is surrounded by lots of Prado Upas.


Mysterious Noises
Client Rewards Affinity
Prox 9200G, 5300 EXP, Eleos Drones None

Save the Machina!
Client Rewards Affinity
Voltak 10500G, 6500 EXP, Gemini Gear None

You may accept this quest as soon as you have spoken to Linada and gone inside the Junks. He will ask you to collect 5 lots of Krabble Back Moss from Oros Krabble on the Fallen Arm. Oros Krabble are found in abundance on the beach surrounding the Wreckage Beach landmark. The Krabble Back Moss is a bit of a rare drop so you will likely have to farm the Oros Krabble for a short while to get 5 of the required material. Once you have 5 of the Krabble Back Moss, head back to Voltak in Junks to complete the quest.

You must complete this quest in order to unlock Voltak's next quest, Eliminate the Threat.


Eliminate the Threat
Client Rewards Affinity
Voltak 10500G, 6500 EXP, Gemini Gear None

After you've completed Save the Machina!, Voltak will ask you to defeat the Broken Mechon. It can be found around Digit 1 Crevasse on the Fallen Arm. Don't be fooled by its deceptive name, this broken little Mechon can still put up a good fight! Be careful not to aggro the M56 Prototype units around the area as well, otherwise you might have an even harder fight. Once completed, head back to Voltak to complete the quest.

The Broken Mechon is a quest exclusive Mechon enemy.


Protect the Village
Client Rewards Affinity
Eleqa 11000G, 7200 EXP, Strength Down V, Weapon Power IV 1✰

Eleqa has asked you to help protect the village by defeating 3 M85 Meteor Artillery units on the Fallen Arm. They can be commonly found around the Connecting Bridge landmark. Take care when defeating these enemies, as it is likely that there will be numerous other Mechon enemies joining in, making it a harder fight. Once you have defeated 3 of the M85 Meteor Artillery Units, head back to Eleqa to complete the quest.

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Eleqa's next quest, Stop the Mechon Rampage!

There are a lot of this type of enemy around the Connecting Bridge landmark and Digit 1 Crevasse so it shouldn't take you to long to defeat 10 of them. You can fast travel to Giant Mechon Debris landmark repeatedly in order to respawn the units in that area, making farming far faster. Once you have defeated all 10, return to Eleqa to complete the quest.

It is advised that you complete this quest because you are rewarded an Armour record book for Shulk's Monado Art.


Therapy
Client Rewards Affinity
Eleqa 8000G, 5000 EXP, Ether Def Down IV 2✰

Once you have defeated the Evil Bathin, head back to Xekit to complete the quest.
