- Drest has calmed down and is now willing to talk.
- Drest has been saving for years so that he can buy passage back to his homeland. However, he yet requires more funds to make his dream become reality. To that end, he asks that you bring him several jungle coeurl hides, which he can sell for a tidy sum. Hunt down and slay four of the beasts for their prized pelts.
- You have successfully skinned four jungle coeurls. Deliver their hides to Drest.
- The hermit confesses that he is an imperial deserter, though he himself is not Garlean. The Empire conquered his native lands, and he holds no ill will towards the people of Eorzea. Nevertheless, he had no choice but to come to Vylbrand, where he now toils in secret so that one day he might return home.
