For Materials for a Mixer you will need to collect 2 Generic Shafts from Mechon M64 units and 2 Generic Blades from Mechon M53 units. These can be found across the Bionis' Leg, and with any luck, you may have already picked up enough to complete this quest without having to go back. If not, then just head back out to Bionis' Leg and find some Mechon. There's quite a few near Maguel Road and the Raguel Bridge - South landmark. Once you have the parts, the Materials for a Mixer quest will be completed. Head over to the Weapon Dev. Lab in Colony 9 to use the materials to make the mixer for Rono.

Leku's Food Crisis
Client Rewards Affinity
Leku 3200G, 800 EXP, Chill Defence IV None

Leku tells you that his little sister, Kilaki is eating too much! He asks you to collect him 10 Peachy Leg Joints to help stop him getting into debt. They are dropped by Deinos, which can be found in abundance between the Waypoint Beacon and the Twisted Tree Gate. Peachy Leg Joints aren't a frequent drop though, so you might want to also trade for some of the items, so you don't have to spend ages farming Deinos. You can trade for Peachy Leg Joints with both Bana and Npa at 1✰ affinity. Once you have collected 10 Peachy Leg Joints, head back to Leku to complete the quest.

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Leku's second quest, Hunt for a Patron.

Client Rewards Affinity

Lupa is the cleverest Nopon and she can be found at the Archaeology Centre from 18:00 to 06:00. Modamo is the strongest Nopon, and he can be found on the Archaeology Level from 18:00 to 06:00. Pepa is the cutest Nopon and she can be found near the Chief's Residence from 06:00 to 18:00. Once you have spoken to all of them, head back to Leku to complete the quest.

Client Rewards Affinity
Kilaki 4300G, 1100 EXP, Poison Defence IV, Kilaki's Note 1✰

Once you have helped out Leku, Kilaki will then give you a quest to fetch her 2 Tasty Ansel Wings so she can become Heropon. These can be obtained by defeating Ansels in Makna Forest. Alternatively, you could trade for some with Bana at 2✰ affinity. When you have the items, head back to Kilaki to complete the quest.

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Leku's third quest, Beat Kilaki to it!


Beat Kilaki to it!
Client Rewards Affinity
Leku 5500G, 1500 EXP, Panther Gloves 2✰

After you have completed Kilaki's quest, Leku tells you she's gone to fight a big monster in Makna Forest. Leku asks you to beat her to the monster and defeat it before she gets there so she isn't hurt. The Unique monster, Obsessive Galgaron can be found in Hode Lair, which is a hidden, underground cave just south of Precipice Bridge. You can also only enter Hode Lair when you have activated this quest, since you need Kilaki's Note (the reward from Kilaki's quest) to unlock the wooden gates to the path that leads to Hode Lair. The wooden gate is slightly tricky to find, but essentially it is just south of the quest marker, down a wooded pathway. You will see two Orluga-type enemies flanking the gate. You will have to defeat them if they spot you, since they aggro on sight. Once defeated, head down the tunnel to the lair. The fight ahead is quite tough, as there are a lot of enemies as well as Obsessive Galgaron.

You can tactically control who you aggro! If you stay at the entrance to the lair and attack one of the non-unique Orluga enemies that flank the entrance then, if you're lucky, none of the other enemies there will go aggro and join the fight. You can do the same to the other non-unique Orluga enemy. And then, you can also defeat the several Hode enemies in the center of the lair. This tactic is all about positioning, make sure you're as far away from the other enemies as possible when you initiate fights. Once all the smaller enemies are killed, you can then focus on Obsessive Galgaron. This is guaranteed to be an easier fight than running straight for Obsessive Galgaron, as that aggros everyone. Once you have defeated the Unique enemy, head back to Leku in Frontier Village to complete the quest.

The gate is just south of the given quest markeryou can only unlock the wooden gate when you have Kilaki's Note

This quest must be completed in order to unlock Leku's fourth quest, Popularity Premonition.


Popularity Premonition
Client Rewards Affinity
Leku 11000G, 2800 EXP, Shell Boots 2✰

After dealing with all of his sister's issues, Leku now wants to focus on himself! When he tells you he wants a wifeypon, Shulk has a vision showing both Pepa and Lupa are interested in Leku. He asks you to choose one of the ladies for him, since he cannot decide. This quest has two endings, depending on which girl you choose.

  • Speak to Pepa (Route A) - if you choose to speak to Pepa, she will ask you to collect 3 tasty Vang Wings from Vangs in Makna Forest. She can be found near the Chief's Residence between 06:00 and 15:00. You can find a few Teneb Vangs flying around the cave tunnels headed towards Divine Sanctuary. You might have to farm for quite a bit since the drop is quite rare, but this is easily done by just fast travelling back to the Divine Sanctuary landmark until you have the items. Once collected, head back to Pepa to complete the quest. The result of this route will be that Leku marries Pepa.

  • Speak to Lupa (Route B) - if you choose to speak to Lupa, she will ask you to collect 2 portions of Royal Apis Nectar from Apis in Makna Forest. There are a lot of Apis-type enemies across Makna Forest, but an easy place to head to would be Agni Tablet landmark since there's several lower level Klanis Apis and Petra Apis in that area. The Royal Apis Nectar appears to be a more common drop so it shouldn't take you too long to collect 2 portions. Head back to Lupa to complete the quest. The result of this route will be that Leku marries Lupa.

The Master's Successor
Client Rewards Affinity
Dobadoba 7500G, 2400 EXP, Debuff Resist II 2✰

To activate this quest, you must have completed both Secret Innovation and Secret Ingredient Hunt, and also have an affinity of 2✰ in Central Bionis. Dobadoba has announced that he wants someone else to take over Pollen Works. He has asked you to choose between either Cherri or Gadada to be his successor. Firstly, you will need to talk to Gadada about his passions for the Pollen industry, then return to Dobadoba. After you've spoken to Dobadoba again, he will ask you to talk to Cherri about her ambitions. Head back to Dobadoba for a final time and he will ask you to make a decision about who should be his successor.

The two routes lead to two mutually exclusive quests that can be received later in the game.

  • Choose Gadada (Route A) - If you choose Gadada as successor, then you will have the opportunity later in the game to activate the quest Safer Energy from Gadada.

  • Choose Cherri (Route B) - If you choose Cherri as successor, then you will have the opportunity later in the game to activate the quest Distilling Active Ingredients from Cherri.


Disinsectization
Client Rewards Affinity
Rasha 3200G, 900 EXP, Mist Gel, Mist Cream, Mist Sandals 1✰

Rasha has asked you to defeat 5 Makna Elucas in Yellow Flower Grove in Makna Forest because Cherri hates bugs. Although it specifies Yellow Flower Grove, defeating any Makna Elucas in Makna Forest will be fine. They are fairly common across the region so you won't have too much of an issue finding them. Once you've defeated 5 of them, head to Cherri in the Pollen Works area to tell her the bugs are gone. Then, return to Rasha to complete the quest.

If you have Dobadoba's quest, Pollen Orb Ingredients, activated then you can complete both quests at once by killing the Makna Elucas in Yellow Flower Grove in order to collect the pollen.
