Quest Walkthrough

If you completed Healing An Angel main-quest following our walkthrough, it means that you also finished Saving An Angel, and you know Sarala, the girl who helped you feed the Chocobo.

If not, you should know that Sarala has a farm close to the location where Dr. Gysahl cured your Chocobo. Sarala has red hair, a brown top and a yellow skirt. She also wears glasses. If you talk to her, you will activate A Father’s Request.

Once you talk to her, you will find out that Sarala’s father went to the woods to look for fertilizer and never came back. His daughter is worried about him and she sends Lightning to find out what happened to him.

Your first goal is to cross The Grassland and move west towards The Jagd Woods. Follow the southern path through the forest and when you reach the first clearance, head north and take the smaller path that leads to Jagd Village.

On the said path you should find a strange character wearing pink glasses. He has a ponytail, and a brown jacket with blue sleeves.

The NPC named Wandering Man will soon inform you that you can’t find Sarala’s father, Cole, because he is dead. The Wandering Man, on the other hand, sends you to find and deliver what Cole couldn’t, which means that you have to find some Forest Fertilizer.

According to the Wandering Man, the location of the Forest Fertilizer is marked by a red shovel. From your current location, turn around, and head back. Move NE in the first larger area on your map, and look for the shovel and the Forest Fertilizer near a large tree.

Take the Forest Fertilizer back to the Wandering Man, and he will send you back to Sarala. When you give the remaining fertilizer to Sarala, you will complete the quest.

Note: Talk to Sarala again and she will give you several Vegetable Seeds and a place to plant them. If you wait 6 hours and if you find more Forest Fertilizer, you can harvest Gysahl Greens and feed them to your Chocobo.
