Need to find a quest item in Lightning Returns? Racing against the clock? Here's our guide to the Canvas of Prayers quests in the Wildlands.

Gatekeeper's Curiosity

Difficulty:1 Star
Items:12 x Slug Sweet
Available:Day 5
Rewards:120 Gil, Medic Guard's Badge, Max HP +10, Strength +1

Difficulty:2 Stars
Client:Bounty Hunter Gahl
Items:2 x Green Monster Moss
Available:Day 3
Rewards:800 Gil, Black Chocobo Figurine, Purple Chocobo Figurine, Max HP +20, Strength +2, Magic +1

The only way to get your hands on the Green Monster Moss required for this quest is to kill the Chocobo Eater. The best place to go hunting for this creature is the Eremite Plains, although be prepared for a tougher fight than you had in your first encounter with the beast. We recommend finishing up as many Wildlands quests as possible before tackling these fights. Every extra little stat boost helps here.

Hunting The Hunter
