In-Game Text


To begin this quest, you must have set foot in Riverne - Site #B01. This requires you to beat Diabolos, return to Jeuno for cut scenes and go through the necessary cut scenes in Tavnazian Safehold in order to gain access to Riverne - Site #B01. See the last cut scene at the Riverne entrance and step into the level capped area of Riverne - Site #B01. Once you've done this, you can speak to Rouva and she will ask you for a rare spice called Rivernewort, which can only be found in Riverne - Site #B01.

As a side note, the key item for this quest is on the path to the Monarch Linn BC for PM 4-2. If you have the opportunity to pick this quest up before going to do that mission, do so as you can easily complete them both at the same time.

Return to Riverne and enter Site #B01. This area is capped at level 50. Everything aggros here except Lesser Rocs, so have oils & powders handy. To get to the key item, you will need a Giant Scale, which is dropped from all of the wyverns in both halves of Cape Riverne. Once you've gone through the only displacement on the first island (which is filled with non-aggroing Lesser Rocs), you'll have convenient access to Pyrodrakes, which read as even match to tough at level 50. They drop giant scales fairly regularly, and it's certainly the simplest place in Riverne - Site #B01 to get scales.

Once you have your scale, you'll want to make your way to the northeast corner of G-8. It's best recommended you get a map (see the quest called "Go! Go! Gobmuffin!"), but if you don't have one, you can hug the left wall and you will (eventually) get there. Be careful of hippogryphs, which have true sight and Core-type mobs, which aggro to magic. Once you get to D-8, however, the first displacement you will see will NOT be unstable, and this is not the displacement you want. Keep heading northeast from that displacement and you will find an Unstable Displacement. Upon trading the scale to the displacement, it will flare for a brief period of time (~10-20 seconds), and move through it.

You will come out at G-7. Head northwest across this island (again, watch for hippogryphs and bombs) and take the other displacement at F-6 (it should be the only one on the island). Head through and you will be on another island. Head southwest and hug the left wall. At E-7, you will see a ???. Click on it to get the key item: Rivernewort. You'll need to be careful, as there are sometimes wyverns on near the ??? and cores in the area which are magic-aggro.

Once you have the key item, Escape and return to Rouva for your reward – an XP scroll. This quest can be repeated once every conquest week.

Once you have completed this quest and Promathia Mission 4-2, you will have access to the quest "Secrets of Ovens Lost" once you have set foot in Sacrarium.

Friend and I did this at site A01, the ??? is on the same island as the entrance to Monarch Linn so you might as well ENM at the same time.

I am almost positive that you don't need to be on 4-2 to flag this quest.

You can also get the Rivernewort key item in A01, as well as B01. I'm pretty sure I had this flagged before I had 4-2 flagged, but maybe you just need to have beaten Diabolos on 3-5?

The ??? for the Rivernewort in A01 is either on the island that has the displacement for Monarch Linn, or the island right before it.

I can confirm that you don't need to be on 4-2 to flag this. I was able to get this quest even before I had defeated Diabolos (not sure if 3-5 had to be at least started, though).

I can confirm this as well: I got this quest while flagged for 3-5.
