The Professor’s Protege – Griffon
Unlock Condition: Complete The Professor’s Protege – Myrlwood Firefly
Reward: 12,000 EXP, Safety Bit x1
Speak to Sania at Coernix Station – Cauthess in Duscae. She’ll ask you to slay a Griffon. You’ll first need to accept the Ruler of the Brave Skies hunting quest from Lestallum’s marketplace tipster. Then, head to the monster’s lair to the northwest of Coernix Station – Cauthess. Be sure to bring along a Greatsword and Fire magic since the Griffon is weak to these. You can rest up at the nearby haven and have a cooked meal to buff your party. It is also advised that you create a manual save. The Griffon will drop multiple items and the quest item you need will not also be obtained. You can reload your manual save or go back to the Lestallum tipster to report the hunt, then restart the quest.
When engaging the Griffon, be ready to defend and parry when it starts to fly around the battle zone. When it lands, take advantage of the opportunity to unleash attacks at will. Using the Star of the Rogue is also effective thanks to its homing effect.
After you’ve obtained the quest item, return to Sania,
