I am slowly progressing through the game on my Nintendo 3DS and I have finally caught up to where I was. I remembered when I saw the Telethia that this was where I had to quit and restart the entire game because I was just way too under-leveled.
So now, I have spent time doing most of the side quests and leveling up the characters and giving them the best equipment that I have. I also made sure that they read arts manuals so I could unlock the intermediate arts. This post will highlight my progress since my last Xenoblade Chronicles post.
This area is so pretty! I can only describe it as ethereal and recommend you search for pictures of it! It’s also full of some tough bosses. I had to fight some of them in order to progress to Makna forest and I struggled with them a bit, but after doing more side quests I finally got better and defeating them!
I mainly helped out some stray Nopon in the area. They’re really cute.
It’s a forest that is separated by cliffs so you have to walk on narrow bridges, I do not recommend looking down! I also helped Nopon here, but I mainly helped the ones in Frontier village out!
One thing I do not like it a giant dinosaur that’s almost 100 and I am barely 40 so I run when I see it!
I also met Melia here and some guy that looks just like Shulk named Alvis. Melia is a mage in the game and she is so far determined to help her people with the Telethia. Alvis briefly taught a technique and then disappeared so I cannot really say much more about him yet.
This is a Nopon village inside of a tree! I love it and it looks like such a nice place to live! There are bridges that help the village grow upwards inside the tree. It also has a beautiful clear lake at the bottom of the first level.
The Nopon need so much help, but because of them I have leveled up quickly from doing all of their side quests along Frontier Village and Makna Forest
I am slowly rebuilding Colony 6 and I love helping the people rebuild their city! I struggled at first helping them move because the enemies guarding the bridge were tough and there were multiple enemy types to defeat.
Now I can physically build the colony and invite people into the colony. It is currently almost completely level 2. I cannot make it fully level 2 yet because I need some rare materials.
I do love the reconstruction process because you can physically see the town being rebuilt. It starts out as a pile of rubble, but towns and shops pop up as you increase Colony 6’s level.
Leone Telethia Boss
This boss has two stages! Both times I was doing really well. I was able to strategize my moves to take down it’s health. It was so much easier this time! I did feel bad that the Telethia could not be tamed, but at least Melia was able to avenge her guard’s deaths.
Making Progress is So Rewarding!
I am really excited to see all new scenes after the Telethia boss. I am currently at Eryth sea and Alcamoth. Eryth sea is gorgeous with floating islands and the clear sea. Alcamoth is breathtaking. It is a large palace with clear seas and the colors are mainly white which makes it look ethereal as well. This game does a fantastic job of making these unique locations that do look like they are from another world! It really helps with immersion!
Name a game that you had a tough time progressing through!
