I Am Setsuna shining spots locations: Flonien Territories

We show you how to hunt down every last one of those pesky shining spots that are so easy to miss in all the snow!

Much like with Chrono Trigger, the classic-style JRPG I Am Setsuna has its fair share of hidden objects to find.

Each section of the world map has a selection of shining points that reveal Materials such as food recipe items or other odds and ends. They are semi-secret however, requiring a keen eye and ear to find. 

Below we cover all the shining spots found in the Flonien Territories (the segment of the game after leaving Nive but before reaching the Northern Frontier).

Each spot is presented in the order you should find them, rather than the order they are listed in the Snow Chronicles menu. For instance, the Snow Chronicles lists the Purikka Cobbler as the first shining spot, but you'll actually come across four others first, while the Antique Bronze Timepiece (the second one you will see) is at the end of the list for no apparent reason.

Most of these can be spotted if you get near them in a town or dungeon, but the shining spots on the world map are nearly impossible to see against the snowy background. You'll only notice the world map spots when you walk directly over them and hear the piano note change.
