"I am Lobivia's mother.
"Lobivia was supposed to head north from the Oasis with his friends."
"But I haven't heard a thing from him since."
"Oh, I suppose Lobivia's always had a bit of wanderlust."
"He's probably off wasting time in some good-for-nothing place this very
moment." "Call it motherly instinct."
one, and ever-beautiful Oasis of Bikanel!
"She says she's Toumeya's mother."
"Toumeya always dreamed of seeing waters vaster than our little
Oasis. And now he's finally getting his wish."

and more water than can be imagined."
"I can't wait to hear the tales he'll have to tell."

"According to his mother, Lobeira loves getting into cramped spaces."
"He left with only one thing in mind: finding the most comfortable box
"He finally found a most splendid treasure chest in the home of a sphere
"How long it's been since I heard from him, I can hardly say..."
"Oh, my careless little Lobeira."
"I've told you a thousand times to be careful of boxes with locks on them."

and check one of the rooms here. You'll find him in a treasure chest.

Plains' Thunder! To easily find him, start from Macalania Woods and exit to
the south. You'll be in Thunder Plains near the waiting shed. Go a little east
and you'll see him near a cactuar stone.
"I am Chiapa's
"He says he's going to meet up with some friends."
"The meeting point? It's some secret place high, high, high up somewhere
he can take in town and the woods."
Mount Gagazet.... Woods... Kilika Woods... Town... Kilika Town... There's no
high place in Kilika! Not so fast! From Kilika Town... go pass the bridge in
the woods, then turn to right. While walking... you'll find a tree lying over
the water. Press O and you'll climb it...
"I've gotten word from Erio."
"His message read: Two brothers, my friends, to a spring went we, I get
to see snow... what rhymes with we?"
"He may never listen to his parents, but I can't help but love my sweet
I'm 100% sure. He's in Gagazet. See the clue? Two brothers...spring... snow.
He's not in the hot spring!!! You missed the word "went". That means
they were there before. Where is he now? From the top, go down the mountain
until you reach Mt. Gagazet -Prominence. It's the place south of the area with
pillars. You'll see him sitting in the snow near the cliff.
"I am Bartschalla's mother."
"My daughter simply adores money."
"She left the desert in search of a 'man of means' - whatever that is."
"It turns out our 'man of means' isn't quite what you'd expect, hoho! Managed
to save up quite a bundle."

"I hate to admit, but my Frailea can be a bit of a handful."
"He's really a very nice boy who just wants to be around friends."
"But he always seems to be falling in with the wrong crowd."
"I'm worried he may not even be traveling at all."
Once done with
all nine gatekeeper, then talk to Marnela about the last gatekeeper.
Mission Time! Who'd have thought the last cactuar would be so close?
Use the help of the nine gatekeepers you've already tracked down to bring that
Objective: Find the tenth gatekeeper.
The dungeon is pretty simple so there no major problem there.
The good thing
is you don't have to defeat all 10 gatekeepers to gain the 'Covenant
of Growth Garment Grid' which will give you double EXP and AP. All you need
is to beat the last gatekeeper, Frailea and you'll receive the Garment Grid.
If you did not get him in the first try, you can still visit all 10 Gatekeepers
at the Cactuar Nation once you beat Angra Mainyu.
