Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII side quest guide

A Final Cure

Here’s where you can find Cardesia in Jagd Village

The Rafflesia have the goods you need, specifically slug sweets

Remember that Chocoborels are mushrooms that only appear during daytime

Here’s where you can find the Crimm Mushroom. Note that it closely resembles the other mushrooms in the game

Be sure to wait until night for the Luminous Mushrooms to appear

Who you get it from: Cardesia in Jagd Village.

When you can obtain the quest: After starting Main Quest 3-1 and between 8AM and 10PM.

Rewards for completion: 1600 gil, Suspicious Mushroom x1, Toxic Mushroom x1, Max HP +80, Magic +12

Instructions for completion: This is one of a number of ingredient shopping list missions in The Wildlands. The first concoction she’s wants to make requires 6 Slug Sweets (obtained from Rafflesia beasts) and 8 Chocoborels (available between 6AM and 6PM), both of which can be found in Jagd Woods.

After you hand over the ingredients to Cardesia, start another conversation with her and ask about the Crimm Mushroom. This will trigger the next quest, which requires 4 more Chocoborels, 4 Luminous Mushrooms, and 1 Crumm Mushroom. Like the Chocoborels, the Luminous Mushrooms are found in Jagd Woods, but only available between 6PM and 6AM. The Crimm Mushroom can be found in Moogle Village, which you hopefully picked up during your Moogle quests. Complete the quest by handing over these ingredients to Cardesia.

    if you do decide to try to complete this quest, be careful. I had the unfortunate luck of only fighting anubys for all 30 tokens for i had eradicated both the niblets and gremlins. so be careful about making some enemies extinct. it will come to haunt you later in the game.

    after getting my starlit spice stolen a few times if found that if one of the enemy bots is in the area(turning the map screen red where ronan is) the cats were gone. I climbed the ladder just before leaving the warren, was on top of the ledge, the bot below me, jumped down and just walked up to ronan. Hope it works for someone else.

    If you're still stuck on this, I figured it out. You have to go there at night. If you've already completed Noel's story, then this is the only other way. I'm trying my best not to rely on guides, but I know FF for being a hellishly hard game. I like it, but sometimes, we all need a little help. Personally, I want an easier way to get in and out of the Warren...and a faster way around towns.
