Where to find the item ancient cog in Octopath Traveler 2

The first thing you need to do is to find Arkar. Make your way head south to Eastern New Delsta Highroad, find a lake, and then head north along the path next to the lake until you reach a bridge. Cross the bridge and find the large wooden house where Arkar resides. 

Ancient Cog is one of the items you need to unlock the skill Anker’s Coil. The other items required are Scrap Metal and Natural Magnetite. You can obtain Scrap Metal from a Factory Worker standing in front of the house down from the Factory in the Industrial District of Clockbank. To obtain Natural Magnetite, go to the Unfinished Tunnel in the Southern Crackridge Wilds, fight an Overseer blocking entry, and follow a winding path through the mine to find a red chest.

Out of the three items, Ancient Cog can be difficult to find because it is unobtainable at certain times. To get it, go to Rouge Island and locate the house near the Tavern, down the steps. Change the time to night since the NPC holding the Ancient Cog won’t appear during the day. Then, go inside and find the Factory Worker with a brown ponytail, standing next to the table. Use an item-stealing skill on the NPC to obtain Ancient Cog.
