How to complete the runaways quest in Octopath Traveler 2 

The Runaways is a quest that is available to all players who have completed Hikari’s path. The important thing is going to Oresrush in the Wildlands and find the Ranch Owner. But the quest comes with its own set of unique challenges that will test your ability.

To start the Runaways quest, make your way to Ku, which is Hikari’s hometown in the Hinoenuma region. The quest giver is a woman named Horse Lender, who is at the horse stable next to the weapon shop. Speak with her and you will learn that she has lost two horses. She will enlist your help to find them.

As mentioned, once the quest has been accepted, you will need to find the Ranch Owner in Oresrush. You must interact with him and choose to Guide, Allure, Hire, or Befriend him to add him to your party. Then, you can return to the Horse Lender and introduce her to the Ranch Owner. 

The Ranch Owner will offer the Horse Lender a position at his stable. He will also allow her to keep her horses in the stable once they return to her. With the conclusion of the cutscene, you will complete the quest. Your rewards are 20,000 Leaves and a Light Nut (M).
