Sidequests are optional quests in Final Fantasy XV. They can involve many different types of objectives. They often provide rewards in EXP, items, weapons or accessories. Completing sidequests yields achievements and trophies, the best one being Weaving a Tapestry after 80 completed quests.

ToursEdit

Tours are short sidequests involving unique moments with Noctis and an ally. When resting at a specific camp, an ally will ask for Noctis's help the following day, and if accepting it, Noctis will help them the next day upon waking. Tours involve a simple task, often following on screen prompts, and reward the party with 20 AP.

Liege of the LakeCleigneCamp in Capitis Haven20 AP

If the player camps at the haven near Vesperpool with a full party, Gladiolus will ask for him and Noctis to go fishing for the legendary Liege of the Lake in the Vesperpool the next morning. Complying triggers a quest for the fish. The tour is completed once the player catches the Liege; quitting fishing puts them back at camp, but the tour can be restarted at any time by camping at the same haven again. It is possible to catch the Liege outside of the tour when fishing at the same spot.

Vesperpool-Tour-Complete-FFXV

The tour at the lake completed.

The "Liege of the Lake" is one of the toughest fish to catch. It is a hidden fish (not marked on the radar while fishing) lurking in the top left corner of the fishing area. It can be caught with the 10,000 Needles Gold Cactuar lure that can be bought at the shop at the same fishing spot. It will appear regardless of weather. It will struggle almost all the time when caught. It is best to use the best fishing line, an upgraded rod and reel, and to have Fishing Level 7 or above. The player should continually tilt the analog stick the way the fish swims, and looking at the fish itself rather than the button prompt can be a better method, although this is not so easily seen if it is raining. The player must be patient and only reel in when the fish is not struggling (the controller doesn't vibrate). Tapping the reel in button can work better than holding it, to save line. Because the fish struggles so much, there are only short windows for reeling.

Catching the fish yields the Big Blaze Bahamut lure, which is special as it will return even if the line snaps.

The Fishing Naturally quest requests Noctis to catch a Cherrycomb Trout. Navyth, the quest-giver, is located west from Lestallum; following the road to the west, the player will cross the river. Navyth will be fishing near in the vicinity of the Mynbrum Haven campground.

Cherrycomb Trout will appear as a yellow dot on the radar. Suitable lures include: Whiskers: Crystal, and Knife T. Tonberry.

For completing the quest the player will get 2,000 EXP and the Butterfly Edge (150 defense) rod.

Navyth's ChallengeEdit

NameLocationUnlockReward

The next quests requires for Noctis to catch the rare a rare fish Vesper Gar. Navyth is found at the Vesperpool, in the northwestern part of the map. Vesper Gar has a long, thin body, and is marked with a blue mark on the mini map. After casting the line the player should pay attention to the fish below the surface and look for the Vesper Gar. Suitable lures include: Stinker: Malboro, Stinker: Malbodoom, and Ranker Tonberry.

For completing the quest the player will get 3,000 EXP and the Invincible Iron Giant lure that sinks when reeled in and floats when tension is released.

The quest completed.

Navyth's last quest at Galdin Quay has Noctis catch the "Devil of the Cygillan" (Murk Grouper). Navyth is found on the beach. It is best to be at least level 7 in fishing. The fish won't be visible on the minimap, but it can be found on the spot nearest to Navyth during daytime by casting the line to the middle of the fishing area, or a little to the right. If the player spots a giant fishing lurking under the surface, they have found it.

Suitable lures are the ones that sink, but an especially good fit is the Burrower: Abyss Worm. It will be a tough battle to reel in the fish, as it will struggle a lot (water is splashing and the controller vibrates). The player must not reel when the fish struggles, but there might only be short windows for reeling as the fish fights back most of the time. Tapping the reel button tends to work better than holding against fish that struggle a lot. Because the fish is so big, it wears down the line fast, and thus the player needs good technique and equipment to catch the fish.

Completing the quest yields 5000 EXP along with the Tranquility rod (290 defense).

MenacesEdit

Once chapter 15 is reached and four optional dungeons Balouve Mines, Crestholm Channels, Daurell Caverns and Costlemark Tower are completed, these sidequests can be commenced by speaking to Ezma at the Meldacio Hunter HQ. She will grant Noctis the key to breaking many seals found within dungeons which lead to rooms underground filled with powerful monsters and a large boss at the end. While they do not offer EXP on their own, the dungeon's rooms itself often contain many useful items, accessories and weapons (among the strongest in the game), while the enemies yield substantial EXP rewards.

Each dungeon features several sections with random rewards and enemies. There are times in which camps are available, and times in which the paths branch out three possible directions, of which only one is correct and will progress the party further into the dungeon.
