Adoring Candice; however, has specific requirements that must be met in order to get all corresponding rewards; therefore, the following walkthrough reveals all steps you have to follow if you wish to complete it.
Before starting the quest, you have to finish A Solitary Patron, by defeating Snow, and you also have to complete Adoring Adornments, by showing Candice 55 adornments.
When both quests are completed, you must be in Augur’s Quarter at 7 PM to find Tomesso, your client.
Description: “The baton twirler Candice is the talk of the Augur’s Quarter. Everyone knows her now, but her biggest fan remains Tomesso. He wants to confess his love by giving Candice a present, but the shop is always sold out. Tomesso is a busy young man, but maybe Lightning can go to the shop in his stead and buy the special adornment.”
Difficulty: 2/3 Requirements: Complete main-quest 2-3: A Solitary Patron, and side-quest: Adoring Adornment. Start at 7 PM and finish before 3 AM
Rewards: 1400 Gil, Maximum HP + 80, Strength + 8, Magic + 4, Heart Glasses Adornment, Onion Knight’s Helm Adornment
If you have met all requirements listed above, travel to Augur’s Quarter in the southern Yusnaan, but before reaching the main gate, at the bottom of the stairs, look for a man wearing a black jacket and a black cap.
Tomesso is located on the right side of the stairs leading to Augur’s Quarter. Talk to him and he will tell you that he loves Candice.
Since Candice can be impressed only by those who have adornments, Tomesso asks Lightning to find a special pair of glasses, so he can give them to Candice. The Gift Glasses are not easy to find and they are also expensive.
Make sure you have 4000 Gil to spare; otherwise, you can’t complete Adoring Candice.
If you have the money, go to Armor Alley, west of Cactuar Statue, at 3 PM sharp. Look for a cart on the street and approach the vendor.
Note: You will find the merchant only between 3 PM and 5 PM.
When you talk to the seller agree to buy the Gift Glasses, and go back to Tomesso in Augur’s Quarter.
Note: Tomesso spawns at 7 PM and disappears at 3 AM.
Give Tomesso the glasses so he can talk to Candice, and watch the cutscene that ends the quest.
