Final Fantasy XV has launched and it is one of the better open world single player RPGs to show up this year. With strong main story and dozens of hours you can spend doing side quests it occupies players for a very long time. Having AI controlled companions and group combat mechanics it gives the impression as if you are playing MMORPG game.
Our sister website GosuNoob spent hundreds of hours in the game and created over 100 guides that will help you go through FF 15 easier. There are things ranging from finding upgrade materials for your weapons, to lists of all the dungeons in the game and walkthroughs for some of them. There are also secret areas, maps of various collectibles, as well as end game content explanations. There are rarely single player games into which we put this much effort and FF 15 is one of those special ones.
Rusted Bit, Glass Gemstone, sturdy Helix horn – A Better Engine Blade
Fairly early in the game Cid at Hammerhead offers to upgrade one of your starter weapons and all he requires are some materials. Cid is a recurring character in the Final Fantasy series. Each game has the story and game world reset anew, but some things keep reappearing, and Cid is one of those FF peculiarities. The side quest he gives you is called A Better Engine Blade and has three versions of it, each upgrading your Engine Blade to the next level. He asks you to get the Rusted Bit first, and it is a common treasure item found in several places in EOS (we have screenshots and map locations for a lot). Glass gemstone is the next upgrade item needed, and it is very rarely found, but with our help you’ll be able to get them easily. Final upgrade component is a tough on and it is called Sturdy Helixhorn. You will need to hunt a particular animal’s drop and the guide tells you where and how.
Scraps of Mystery and other side quests in FFXV
Beside the main story quest (which is as good as you’d expect from a Final Fantasy game) you have a plethora of side quests in the open world to keep you occupied and help you level up. There are dog tags to collect from fallen hunters, helping strangers fix their cars along the road or help a jeweler collect precious stones all over the lands. However, two quests in particular present a big difficulty and require a lot of time to complete. First of these is called Scraps of Mystery and it is one of the most mysterious adventures in FF 15 that has 14 steps to it! It took dozens of hours to find all the starting points and Sylvester’s Map Pieces to complete it. To help you avoid all this trouble we compiled a guide with maps showing locations of all 14 Mystery map and Scrap locations in Final Fantasy XV. Second one is the Professor’s Protege Quest that requires you to hunt red, yellow and rainbow frogs near bodies of water. Finding these is time consuming and if you need help our guide is the perfect thing to help you skip the tedious searching.
I hope any of you playing Final Fantasy XV will find our guides helpful and will check out our collection of 100 FFXV guides that will hopefully make this great game even more enjoyable.
We have some exciting news for all the RPG fans out there. As many of you know a new, massive, open world RPG game is coming out in less then two weeks – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It promises to be one of the largest single player RPG games on the market and from everything we’ve seen from the footage released so far it will be a real treat to RPG fans all over the world. Our sister website GosuNoob.com has decided to celebrate the upcoming release by giving away pre-order keys of the game to two lucky winners in their Witcher 3 Giveaway! All you have to do is enter your email and you have a chance to win, with additional entries earned through following their social network pages. In case you haven’t yet pre-ordered the game or are curious as to what it is going to be like head on over to gosunoob.com and enter the giveaway.
We, here at MMORPG Life, also decided to create a Witcher 3 dedicated website called Witcher 3 Life. Yes, Witcher 3 is a single player game, but with having loads of quests, huge open world, RPG lore based in Slavic folklore, abilities, crafting and all the other hallmark features of MMORPGs we believe it deserves a place in our network of websites. Bookmark the website because you can expect to see all the stuff you got used to seeing on all other MMORPG Life websites (from tools to database information and guides).
It has been quite a while since we updated GW2 Life. There are many excuses that we could make for this, but when Season 2 started and a whole new zone got added we figured there is no excuse for not returning to the game and checking out the new content. New zone is called Dry Top and you can reach it via a portal in western Brisban Wildlands. There are 19 new Points of interest, 4 skill points and 5 vistas to be discovered in this zone. We found locations of all of them and added the map of Dry Top along with guides on how to find each and every POI, vista and skill point (as you should be used to by now from our website). We also added locations and screenshot guides for various events found in the zone that help towards the Dry Top achievements. You can reach the new pages through the Interactive Maps menu drop down up on top of the website or by clicking here. There is a Jumping Puzzle in the new zone as well and we are working on the guide for it. You can expect to see it up on the website shortly.
New level 80 area called Southsun Cove has been released onto Guild Wars 2 players and we are enjoying in the exploration of the new content. Along the way we are doing what we’re best known for and that is filling in the map of Southsun Cove with POIs, Waypoints, Events and all that other good stuff we are used to doing with Guild Wars 2 lands. You can find the Southsun Cove map here, but keep in mind that this is work in progress and that more things will be added to the map as we find them and upload them.
You should also know that there are two new jumping puzzles in Southsun Cove and we have already produced a screenshots guide to one of them – Skipping Stones Jumping Puzzle. We’re doing the second one as we’ll update this post as we publish it on the site.
Guild Wars 2 launched and with it our website went into full gear. We’ve seen tens of thousands of visitors rush to our guides and interactive maps and more are coming every day. We initially managed to gather some information during the open beta weekends. We prepared and completed as much as we could in that short time period. With the launch we are now able to level our characters and gather information from all over Tyria. We are trying to add one new map each day.
Yesterday we added Lornar’s Pass and today I am proud to announce that Field of Ruin interactive map is live and full of information.
Three ranger pets have also had images added to them and locations updated.
We’ve also added jumping puzzle guides to the interactive maps as special POIs. We have screenshot guides for about 10 puzzles and are working on adding more and you can now see which jumping puzzles each zone has by visiting that zone’s interactive map. Unfortunately, during this process we managed to break something. Some of the maps have been missing lists of things available on the map, underneath the map itself. I wanted to let everyone know that we fixed this bug and now all the map and POI pages should be working the way they were intended to. Thank you all for visiting GW2 Life and feel free to leave any and all feedback either in the comments section bellow or through our Contact us form.
