Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Buried Passion Walkthrough

Another Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII side-quest that must be discovered in Luxerion is Buried Passion, a quest that will require your presence in Luxerion for more than one day.

Buried Passion can be played the moment you complete Hunter In Light And Shadow, but only after 10 AM.

Similar to the side-quest named The Angel’s Tears, to finish Buried Passion you have to talk to your client several days in a row, because he has a story to tell.

Unlike The Angel’s Tears; however, in Buried Passion you also have to find a Quill Penn which is a key item hidden in the city.

The following walkthrough explains how to start Buried Passion, and where to find the Quill Pen.

Quest Walkthrough

Buried Passion is an accessible side-quest, especially if you have completed The Things She’s Lost, early in the game; however the first step is to find your client, named Armand.

According to the description above, Armand is located on Saint’s Hill, but he will spawn only after 10 AM, and only after you finish Hunter In Light And Shadow.

From the Commercial District, head west to enter the large area known as the Residences. Continue to move west and on the left side of the main alley you should see a guard post.

It is the same guard post near which you have found Clock #9 (Like Clockwork side-quest).

While facing the guard, on the left side of the post, in a dark corner is a NPC wearing a pair of rimmed glasses. It is Armand and he is your client.

The first step is to talk to him and hear the story he wants to share. Unfortunately he won’t tell the whole story during a single dialogue, and you will be asked to return later. Make sure that you wait for a day to pass, and visit Armand again.

As he continues his story, at some point he will ask you to find an item for him, which is a Quill Pen. The Quill Pen is not easy to find, if you don’t know where to look exactly, because it is well hidden. If you completed The Thing’s She’s Lost, you will have to return to the area where you found the Carbuncle Doll. In other words travel to the Marketplace located east of North Station Plaza.

If you skipped The Thing’s She’s Lost, open you map and notice the alley which connects the North Station and Old Town. When you get close to the Forge, on the right side you will see a vendor named Serge. Near him you have found the Carbuncle Doll.

Across the small alley is a Sorcery Shop, and in the corner of the shop you will see several red crates. Smash the crates to find the Quill Pen.

Now, go back to Armand so he can finish his story and give him the Quill Pen to claim your rewards.
