Lightning Returns Guide: Side Quest Checklist (Luxerion)

Can't find a side quest in Luxerion? Take a look at my checklist!

In this guide, I’ll give a basic checklist to the side quests in Luxerion. Some of these are completed just by progressing the story line. Many of the quests are time limited for availability, so always keep an eye on your clock.

The Checklist:

Here’s the checklist, but let me give a quick rundown of what you’ll see in the table. The first column shows quest name, difficulty (1, 2, or 3), and time of day as applicable. Second column is quest details, a short blip with general location of quest start and other useful information. Third column is turn ins, whether it’s an item or just talking to someone, this is what you need to complete the quest. The last column is rewards, everything obtained from completing the quest. There is an H, S, M, G, and I next to the specific Health, Strength, Magic, Gil, and Items rewarded.
