Lightning Returns: FF13 – Luxerion Canvas of Prayers, monster locations

There are plenty of bonus Canvas of Prayers quests in Lightning Returns. Here's our guide to completing every last one in Luxerion.

After speaking to the Chocobo Girl in Luxerion, you'll gain access to a quest system known as the Canvas of Prayers. While the rewards aren't quite as meaty as those you'll receive from working your way through the main and side quests of the game, they're very handy for their minor stat boosts. You'll notice that many of these quests share the same item requirement, so wherever possible try to keep all the quests you can in the log, and keep killing monsters until you've satisfied all requirements.
