How to beat procuring peculiar tomes in Octopath Traveler 2
Finding these books is not easy, but it is definitely worth the effort. You can obtain two of the books relatively easily, but you’ll need to be at least level 35 to access a locked area for the third book.
Let’s now discuss where to find each of these tomes.
- Dispatches from Beastling Island: The merchant in Beastling Village sells, steals, or gives away this book. You can find the merchant in the town where you first met Ochette.
- From the Far Reaches of Hell: Inside the only guarded house in Crackridge (Wildlands) lies this tome. The house is in the southeast part of the area below a ladder. You will need to use any Path Action that can knock a person out in order to retrieve the tome.
- The Curious Legend of the Great Wall: A southern Stormhail Snows archeologist holds this book. You can find the archeologist near the save point beside the mountain pass entrance, by fast traveling to Stormhail. The archeologist is available both day and night, so be sure to take the tome with whoever has the ability to snag an item for you.
Once you have procured all three books, return them to the Unusual Tome Specialist to receive your reward. Finishing this quest will also unlock another one called From the Far Reaches of Hell, which can be obtained from Al the “traveler” located in the southeast part of the library.
