  • Though Tataru has been forced to abandon her pursuit of a new profession, she would not see her brief sabbatical end without accomplishing something of note. Accordingly, she asks that you accompany her to Costa del Sol-- though for what purpose she does not say.
  • Once more, you find Tataru dressed appropriately for the occasion-- her goal this time being the procurement of pearls from clams native to Bloodshore. The endeavor is not without risk, however, as the clams are a favorite food of certain dangerous creatures. Follow Tataru to the sands below and see if she requires any assistance.
  • Fortune smiles on the young woman, as she soon uncovers a clam. While she works to remove the pearl within, stand watch for any creatures that might do her harm.
  • A ravenous serpent sets its sights on your friend and her prize, but you promptly slay it. Happily, Tataru appears to have completed her task-- let her know that you have too.
  • Tataru reveals her intent to use the blood pearls she has harvested to fashion charms for her fellow Scions. In this way, she hopes to ensure that they will always come home. Having accomplished her task, she makes for Limsa Lominsa, where F'lhaminn awaits, and bids you return to Minfilia at the Rising Stones.
  • After listening to your account, Minfilia concludes that despite Tataru's failure to become an arcanist, she nevertheless benefited from the experience. With the benefit of hindsight, she suspects that the receptionist would have managed on her own... but is grateful that you indulged her request even so.

<sigh> As fetching as these garments are, I fear I shall never don them again...
But I can't go back to the Rising Stones without something to show for my time away.
Wait―I know what I can do! That is, if you don't mind accompanying me for a little longer?
Wonderful! Then to Costa del Sol we will go! It's a bit of a gamble, but I'm confident it will pay off!
Yes, this is it! This is where the man at the Drowning Wench told me to look!
There is a certain variety of clam which can be harvested this time of year in Bloodshore―one which produces the most marvelous pearls!
However, these clams are also coveted by certain wild creatures―and since I fared rather poorly in battle last time... Ahem. Let us be off!
What fortune, I've already found one! Would you be so kind as to keep watch while I work? This should only take a moment...
Well fought, [Name], well fought! I knew I was right to ask you to come.
As for me, I have my prize: a bounty of blood pearls!
So named for their reddish hue, they were treasured as wards against dark magicks in ancient times.
I thought I might make charms for everyone... so that no matter where they go, they will always come home.
It's sort of the power to defend myself and other a way. Right, well, I mustn't keep F'lhaminn waiting! There's work to be done―and lots of it!
We're to secure provisions for the Scions in the Lominsan markets. She may have an eye for quality, but I have a nose for bargains!
Will you be heading back to the Rising Stones? If so, pray convey my apologies to the Antecedent, and tell her that she needn't worry about me.
Farewell, [Name], and thank you for everything!
Hmm, that sounded rather final, didn't it? How about...until we meet again!
Welcome home, [Name]. I gather you found Tataru in Limsa Lominsa?
My, it sounds as though she had quite an adventure. And while it did not end as she had hoped, I suspect that it will prove to be a valuable experience.
I daresay she could have managed without our intervention. Even so, I appreciate you indulging my request.
