Where to Get the Lost Lights Quest

In the Cynbel Sea, on the first screen upon entering fly (swim?) as fat left and as high up as you can, and you'll find a lost elemental. He wants to go home, but needs help to get there. He and Igniculus summon his elemental friends, but they are scattered around Lemuria. Surprise, surprise - he wants you to do the legwork and find them!

Each elemental will be hanging out at the sign / shrine's you've likely been noticing since way back in the Mahthildis Forest. At each, you'll now encounter an elemental. Speak to them and they'll head for our tired glowy friend in the sea. Here's where they are:

2 in the Forest

Mahthildis Forest: One near the sign in the Tree of Thorns in Mahthildis Forest. 

The Old Monastery: One at the sign just outside the exit to the monastery - fly down and left after exiting. 

2 in the Plains

Windwheels: The fastest way to reach the sign in the Windwheels is to fast travel to Bolmus Populi. Just outside the town of Bolmus Populi past the smoking girl you'll find the sign.

Bolmus Populi: Go to the entrance of the Moon Temple, then fly straight down past two fire reapers and to the right. Expect some left wind gusts to contend with. (Thanks TheWhistlerr!)

2 at Sea

Cynbel Sea: If this one were any closer to the quest giver, they'd be holding hands. He's in the same cavern, fly left and down from the Elemental quest giver, to the sign.

Piscean Village: One just outside the Piscean Village on the right as you move to enter the Cynbel Sea.

Redeeming the Lost Lights Quest

Head back to the Elemental in the Cynbel Sea for a short interaction and your reward.

    The one that's near the Tree is to the left of the tree, travel to the Capilli Village and travel left from there, after about 10 seconds you'll find it on the ground at the entrance/exit of the tree :)

    This video helped me when I got stuck - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UopHvVXRnaQ

    It says to go far LEFT when it should say RIGHT. Also, it shouod say "when you enter cynbel sea THROUGH PISCEAN VILLAGE" cause when you look at the map, piscean is in cynbel sea. Was a bit confusing.
  • AztekLord21
    Thanks for the tip, just wanted to point out that you say to go LEFT, when you actually have to go RIGHT. It was kindy of confusing until I figured it out. :P
  • TheWhistlerr
    The one in the plains (bolmus populi) isn't completely correct. It gets you halfway to where you want to be. You go to where the entrance of the moon temple & go straight down past 2 fire grim reapers & to the right. The wind gust will blow you left a little bit fair warning.

    I am sorry to say....................I still can not find the firefly in the"Mahthildis Forest"........would you mind telling more details about it?? I like this game very much........though I am in China...with...poor English........playing games with dictionary is not very .....easy at all.......
  • TheWhistlerr
    I found it by starting at the altar, and going left. It's to the left of the Tree of Thorns. Just keep an eye out for it.

    Mahthildis Forest: One near the sign in the Tree of Thorns in Mahthildis Forest.

    should be re located to the hill beneath the temple, found this problem and stuck me for a while

    Hope it helps to everyone

    Hi Wayne, just double checking before I update the guide with your details - wouldn't that put the Tree of Thorns Elemental at the location for the one near the Old Monastery?

    Thanks for helping out! I wrote this after completing the quest instead of during it, so my details were a bit fuzzy. I'm grateful everyone's pitching in to make the locations clearer :)
  • jack_4620
    I'm having a hard time finding the elemental you reference in the tree of thorns can you be more specific please?
  • TheWhistlerr
    I think I found it to the left of the tree. If you enter from the forest, keep going left
  • Seibei4211
    Ok, the reason the 6th elemental is hard to find is because the quest is kind of lying to you. The other one in the "plains" is really more in the Cliffs area. Go to the Temple of the Moon, then fly straight down for a little bit until you see the elemental kind of to your right. It's below the area with the two red fire grim reaper guys.

    Hi Seibei! Thanks for adding clarification for everyone. We want to add your notes to the guide, which elemental location are you describing - the Windwheels location?
  • Alex _8305
    Hey guys. Found the last one I believe. Go to Bolmus Populi, go right and travel with the giant to that sky city. Fly up through the gap near where you meet the jester and the firefly is on your right around there.
  • BlackStar300
    Got it! Thanks Alex!!!!
  • BlackStar300
    Same, I am missing one as well. I thought this guide would help me find it as it is the only guide up, but I'm missing the one in the plains. As I've gotten the 2 sea ones and the 2 forest ones. Only plain one I have is the one by the populi. =/
  • Austin_8535
    I think you marked two places for the same elemental because I followed ur guide and I only have five I'm missing one from the plains
  • Justin_1812
    I guess I mustn't look well... I have five of them and still missing the one in the ''Tree of the Thorns'' area.. Can't seem to find it! Can you be more specific..?
  • TheWhistlerr
    I think I found it to the left of the tree. When you enter from the forest, just keep going left
  • BlackStar300
    Thank you so much I been having so much trouble with back tracking. Spent 5 hours since I got the quest and I can't move on til I find it!!! Thx a million
