A Better Engine Blade

To complete the first stage of the Better Engine Blade quest you simply need to find a Rusty Bit. These are very common items found on the floor, with the glowing blue icons. By the time I had this quest in my quest log I had already obtained 10 so you shouldn’t have a problem completing the quest as soon as it becomes available.

A Better Engine Blade II

For the next stage of the quest you need to find a Glass Gemstone. This rare item can be found in a number of places. The easiest place to find one is atop a well near the Lighthouse at Cape Caem. Check just outside the large house before you reach the Lighthouse.

A Better Engine Blade III

The final quest for the Ultima Blade requires a Sturdy Helixhorn. This is another simple item to find. Head to Old Lestallum and choose the The Last Spiracorn Hunt. Head to the location and attack the horn of the biggest enemies for the Stury Helixhorn.

    “This is another simple item to find.” Ha! I’ve done this hunt like 30 times with no drop. I see the horn fall off when I hit it but I never see a notification that I got it and can’t find it in my inventory. Should it be in “Treasures” if I got it?

    • Vincent M LaBarbera

      Oh. And if anyone is in the same boat as me. Park your car near the enemies and sleep in the hotel in the outpost. That was it’s really quick to do “Return to rest point” and “return to car.”

        you can also save and reload (works as well from many reports all over)… I personally got the food “mother and child” that gives 50% increased drop… that helps a LOT! (recipe is found in the big town up north ignis will comment upon seeing a mother and her child eat it)

      Had several tries too. I tried equipping the sword of wise amd it worked. Got it on the first try. Keep on warp attacking the horn until you get it. Works wonders for others too
