Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII side quest guide

Dying Wish

The Thunderclap Cap looks like a blue mushroom.

The second item for this quest is Mandragora Root, which you can buy from a South Station grocer.

Remember where you found the Carbuncle Doll? You can buy Shaolong Gui Shell from Seger nearby.

Ms. Chocobo Emporium looks like a tween version of Chocolina.

Who you get it from: Blythe, a woman sitting on the Gallery Steps where the Commercial District and The Residences meet.

When you can obtain the quest: Between 6AM and 10PM, after completing the first two side quests.

Rewards for completion: Tonberry’s Lantern, Max HP +80, Strength +8, Magic +4

Instructions for completion: Completing this mission involves collecting four items found by running around much of Luxerion. You will also need to spend 1000 gil. Begin by heading slightly south to alleys of The Warehouse District. There you’ll find the Thunderclap Cap, a blue mushroom. Then head further south to the shops near South Station. Look for the woman running one of the Groceries and buy a Mandragora Root. Then run to the East Marketplace and look for the merchant named Seger. Buy Shaolong Gui Shell from him. Finally, head back to the Commercial District and look for Chocobo Emporium, who looks like a younger, dirty blonde version of Chocolina. After speaking to her, hand over the three items you’ve collected. She’ll turn these items into Spectral Elixir, the item you have to give to Blythe.

    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.
