There’s a typo on one of the job bulletins in Tales of Xillia 2, and I think it’s important that I point it out so that I can save some other people a lot of confusion.
One of the requests you can get asks you to fetch an item called “Floresta” Wine. As the paw print icon next to its name on the job info indicates, you can only obtain the icon by using Kitty Dispatch.
Problem is, they give you the wrong area to go to. The bulletin directs you to go to Sapstrath Highroad, but in reality, the wine can only be found in Sapstrath Seahaven.
I didn’t realize this at first, so I sent the cats to the highroad several, SEVERAL times before I finally realized that something was up. I even kept sending them after I had already gotten the “Complete!” notification, wondering if it was a secret item that wasn’t listed or something.
Before I even realized the cat icon was there, I also searched all over the highroad personally for it. Fighting monsters, trying to steal from them, picking up shiny stuff and bags… You name it. But, nonetheless, that chat with Elize and Teepo that you sometimes get when you have a job requiring Kitty Dispatch objects popped up, so I knew that my efforts were in vain.
Finally, I tried the Seahaven on a whim. Sure enough, the very first time that the cats came back from there…… They brought the wine with them!
I don’t know if this applies to every instance where you are asked for the wine, or just this one I happened upon. I also don’t know if this mistake was present in the Japanese version, or if it was an error introduced by the localization. But, what I do know is that there’s a typo, and it needs to be made known so that there’s less confused people running around.
In hindsight this should have been painfully obvious, because why would a bottle of wine be out in the fields? But, well, people litter, yanno? And besides, I wasn’t about to distrust the game when it TELLS me where something explicitly is, but it looks like I’ll have to be more skeptical from now on.
Ahhh, I see they didn’t fix this in the localization. Yeah, this error was also in the Japanese version. Going by that, there should be two others that are like this and they all involve the Sapstrath/Sharilton area. I didn’t notice what was up until a job saying to defeat Basilisks in Sharilton came up, since…there aren’t monsters in Sharilton. Nope, gotta go to the Sapstrath Deepwood for that. ^-^;
