How To Solve ‘The Mysterious Pair’ Sub-Quest in Tales of Arise
Before starting ‘The Mysterious Pair’, you will need to complete ‘A Healer and Her Patients’. You will receive this quest automatically as you progress through the main story and arrive in Menancia, Overseer Hill. Once you finish ‘A Healer and Her Patients’, you will need to travel to Niez. The Wonder Bard, one of the patients you helped in the previous quest, is the NPC that will give you this next sub-quest. Speak to the Wonder Bard, and he will tell you to retrieve an instrument. He will provide you with three riddles, or “Wonder texts”:
- Just beyond the hovels in a land shrouded by sand and stone.
- The northernmost reaches of a wasteland to the north of an abandoned village.
- It lies dormant at the back of a narrow road to the west, whereupon an ancient tower stands.
The instrument is located in Iglia Wastes, Calaglia. It is in the northernmost part of the area. There will be sparkles near some bushes that you can interact with. Search this area, and you will find the Iron Pipe instrument. Return to Wonder Bard with the Iron Pipe to complete the quest. You will receive the Iron Pipe, Quivering Candles, 2300 Gald and 15 SP as a reward. Congratulations! You have solved the riddles and completed the ‘The Mysterious Pair’ sub-quest in Tales of Arise.
