  • Chora-Zoi is excited to begin improvements on the splendorous tools.
※Changing classes or jobs will prevent progress during this quest.
  • Chora-Zoi has been looking over Grenoldt's plans to improve the base splendorous tool, and could not be more excited to begin the process. Before augmenting anything, however, there is the small matter of preparing suitable trade goods...which can then be exchanged for the rare and expensive components procured by the Boutique of Splendors. This, according to Grenoldt, is to be your job. Once you are done trading wares to Quinnana, Chora-Zoi will be waiting to take charge of both materials and tool for the next step of this splendorous endeavor.
※Please note that you may not proceed with a class or job that is different from when you accepted this quest.
  • You entrust the splendorous tool and rare materials to Chora-Zoi, and, under Grenoldt's watchful eye, she succeeds in effecting the desired improvements. The already masterful piece feels somehow more natural in your hand─a testament to the young artisan's consummate skill. With the first stage complete, you look forward to how the next stage of improvements will transform your tool of the trade.

Keen to help us make another splendorous tool?

Master Grenoldt was just showing me the plans he drew up for augmenting the tool he gave you...


...And the concept is nothing short of incredible! It lays out, step by step, how we can gradually evolve a functionally complete instrument to an even higher level of perfection!
Aye, ye've grasped the idea just from lookin' at me diagrams. With instincts like that, I'd say yer ready to put hammer to anvil!
I am...? I mean, yes, sir! R-Ready and willing!

First things first, we get our supplies sorted out. The Boutique has promised to acquire the materials we need, but uncommon wares demand uncommon payment.


So I'm volunteerin' yer services, Forename. Yer job is to come up with quality trade goods for barter, an' I want ye to do that by usin' the tool we're tryin' to improve.


The more a skilled tradesman puts it to work, the more we can see what bits need shorin' up─an' the better we can judge if our planned improvements are on the right track.
Come to think of it, I should be shoring up my forging technique... I wouldn't want to ruin any of those rare materials!
Aye, that's the mindset to have, lass. Dignity and dedication─that'll be our motto from now on. To work, then!

Ahem, right, so... For this particular project, the plans call for a supply of splendorous botanist's components and splendorous earth shards.

Oh, and as we discussed earlier, it's very important that you craft the trade goods using the base splendorous tool so we can gauge the best path for its augmentation!

Quest Accepted
System

To craft the necessary trade goods, open the Crafting Log, followed by Special Recipes from within the requisite crafting discipline. Next, select Sidequests, then lastly Splendorous Tools to locate applicable recipes.


Please note that select crafting materials can be purchased with scrips, and that you must have your splendorous tool equipped when crafting.

The trade goods in question can be found in the Splendorous Tools section of the Gathering Log.


Please note that you must have your splendorous tool equipped when gathering.

Catching fish suitable for use as trade goods requires the use of specialized bait balls. This bait can be obtained from Quinnana in exchange for scrips.


Furthermore, please note that you must have your splendorous tool equipped when fishing.

When making your final delivery to Chora-Zoi, the tool to be upgraded should be placed in your inventory or Armoury Chest, and not equipped.

Summat confusin' ye? Just make sure to use the base splendorous tool to prepare the trade goods for barter.


Deliver said goods to Quinnana, an' she'll exchange them for the rare materials we need. Once ye've got enough, drop the lot on Chora-Zoi so's she can get on with the improvements. Simple, eh?

That's quite a pile of components you have there! If you could just sort of...drop them into my arms here. Oh, and the tool, of course!


So many precious materials... I'll do my best to make the most of them!
Aye, Mistress Mowen an' Forename have done their part─time for us to do ours.
To the Facet of Forging we go! If you don't mind waiting, this shouldn't take too terribly long!
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
I think I'm getting the hang of this! With every new tool I improve, I feel like I'm improving myself along the way!

All finished! I was a bit nervous handling those rare components...


...But I just followed Master Grenoldt's diagrams and I think I was able to make some definite improvements!
She's got a good eye an' a steady hand, Forename. I reckon ye'll be pleased with how it turned out.
May I present to you the augmented splendorous <tool>! Go on─hold it up for the world to see!
