Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII Walkthrough

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Luxerion Canvas of Prayers Quests Guide

Luxerion, the first major area in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII includes a total of 13 Canvas of Prayers quests, you can complete if you wish to improve Lightning’s stats, and earn additional rewards such as adornments and Gil.

Most Canvas of Prayers quests in Luxerion don’t require specific items, but to complete you need various materials that can be obtained by killing the beasts within the city; thus, you should focus on them the moment you start the video game.

The Luxerion Canvas of Prayers Quests are unlocked gradually, and can be activated by talking to Chocolina near the North Station, or to the one in Luxerion’s South Station.

The following Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII guide reveals the complete list of Canvas of Prayers quests available in Luxerion, providing additional details on how to start them, and where you should look for the ingredients required for every Canvas of Prayers side-quest in the city.

Quest 1: Revenge Is Sweet


“Ooh, I hate those things, I really do! That loathsome Niblet took my boyfriend from me. If I could actually use a weapon, why, I swear I’d pay it ten-fold! Perhaps a kindly soul will hear my prayer and kill the Niblet for me…”

Quest Item: Niblet Hairball X 6

These monsters can be found everywhere in Luxerion, and you will also have to kill several during the main-quest named A Different Snow. Gather 6 hairballs and use them to complete the quest.

Quest 2: Inventive Seamstress


“I wonder if you’ve heard of the liquid glass that can be harvested from Meonektons. I think it would make a perfect coating for cloth – it would give the material a beautiful glossy sheen and make dirt and stains just fall away. I’d love to try it out. But how am I going to get a sample?”

Client: Seamstress Nell

Difficulty: 1/3

Quest Item: Liquid Glass X 3

Available: Day 1

Reward:  200 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Strength + 1, Magic + 1, Noonblue Butterfly

While playing the Souls Seeds side-quest you may encounter one of them in the Chaos Zone close to Baird. If not, you should look for them in The Warren area.

Quest 3: Gift Of Gratitude


“Oh God, please help me! A Rotten monster has torn a great big hole in my stuffed moogle, and now I need a strip of tattered leather to repair it. Can someone please help? You see, I made it as a gift. I am greatly indebted to a certain person, and this toy was meant to pay back some of their kindness.”

Client: Toy Maker

Difficulty: 1/3

Quest Item: Tattered Leather X 8

Available: Day 1

Reward:  120 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Magic + 1, Rangda Crest, Leyak Crest

The Gremlins are white; they look like owls and have grey wings. These beasts will attack you at night everywhere around the city.

Quest 4: A Song For God


“Oh, damn this lute! There’s no way I can compose a decent hymn on this thing. I’m so close to finding the perfect melody, but this cursed instrument thwarts me at every turn! Of course, if I had a big pile of demon spicules, things would be completely different. Then I could pick the perfect bone to carve out a new bridge for the lute. Gaunt bones are the best, but how am I to find any?”

Client: Pious Lutist

Difficulty: 1/3

Quest Item: Demon Spicules X 3

Available: Day 3

Reward:  180 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Strength + 1, Snowy Spirit Wings, Masquerade Mask

Quest 5: Slay The Machine


“You know the ensorcelled machine, right? Well, I think I’ve found a buyer for one of its components. If you can bring the beast down and salvage the part, I can cut you in on the profits. All you have to do is fight the Gertrude and bring me its motor coil. Whaddya say? We have a deal?”

Quest 6: Trapped


“Argh! Someone please help me! All these Niblets and Gremlins came pouring out of the Chaos and started chasing me all over the place. I wedged myself into this narrow cleft for safety, but they’re right outside the entrance and it doesn’t look they’re planning on moving! I’m going to starve to death in here if someone doesn’t do something, and soon!”

Client: Likoma

Quest 7: Grave of a Bounty Hunter


“My brother said he was going to get out of the bounty hunting trade, but what does he do but go and get himself killed by a Zomok! Him and practically everyone else in his band of reckless adventurers. There’s no bringing him back now. But at least, I wish I could kill that monster. Then I’d pluck a tuft of stormdragon down from its belly and place it on my brother’s tombstone.”

Quest 8: Revenge Has Teeth


“Damn! I want revenge on the monster that slew my pal, but this sword couldn’t cut through toilet paper, let alone monster hide. I asked the forge to sharpen the blade, but they tell me they need chipped fangs from Gorgonopsids, and lots of them. What am I gonna do?”

Client: Sellsword Ramdall

Quest 9: Mythical Badge


“In the past, the Order issued twelve badges of merit to private citizens who made large donations to the church. What I am most interested in is the mythical 13th badge issued by the high priestess herself. Could it really exist? Has it been issued to another contributor – by mistake, perhaps?”

One of them on top of the stairs that lead to the entrance of the South Train Station, the second one in the plaza in front of the North Station, and the third one in the Residences area.

If you take a closer look you should see several clerics near every statue; however, to get the Proof of Legendary Title you have to find a specific cleric who gathers donations. He patrols from the South Station to the Residences, and then to the North Station.

He also has a dialogue box above his head and he wears a golden mask and a grey coat. You don’t have to talk to all clerics, but instead you need to find the one collecting money.

When you do, talk to him several times, and always pay what he asks, until he gives you the Proof of Legendary Title.

Quest 10: Enchanted Brush


“We have commissioned a group of devout artists to restore one of the Order’s most treasured murals. But to undertake the task, they must have fine enchanted brushes. Alas, this requires demon spicules from Gaunts and stormdragon down from the belly of a Zomok – not items that are easily procured!”

Quest Item: Demon Spicule X 10, Stormdragon Down X 8

Available: After you complete Quest 4: A Song for God and Quest 7: Grave of a Bounty Hunter

Guide:  The north-western area known as Sinner’s Corner is where you will find Gaunts and Zomoks.

Get the 10 Demon Spicules and 8 Stormdragon Downs from them.

Quest 11: Puppeteer’s Lament


“Woe is me! Or more to the point, woe is my favorite marionette, for I have run out of the special lubricating oil I need to keep his joints moving smoothly. Normal oil simply will not do. No, no, he must have the best. The best, I say! Which means quality machine oil of the kind used on Dreadnoughts.”

Client: Puppeteer Urma

Difficulty: 2/3

Quest Item: Quality Machine Oil X 1

Available: Starting Day 5

Reward:  700 Gil, Maximum HP + 20, Strength + 2, Magic + 1, Blue Propeller Adornment, Shooting Star Adornment

Guide:  In Sinner’s Corner you may also run into several Dreadnaughts that spawn randomly. They are large robots, vulnerable to ice-based attacks and almost invulnerable to Fire.

These are rare creatures and you should try to take them down the moment you see them spawn.

After you get the Quality Machine Oil, continue to kill 5 more because you will need 5 additional units of oil for the next quest.

Quest 12: Heretics’ Beasts


“Those Etro fanatics have used dark sorcery to summon Dreadnoughts and Meonektons and are trying to use them to menace their foes. Although the heretics do not have full control of the monsters, they are still a terrible threat. Can you send them back to Chaos whence they were summoned?”

Client: Grand Inquisitor

Difficulty: 3/3

After you kill 5, travel to The Warren and look for Meonektons; however these beasts also appear in other regions.

Quest 13: Night Patrol


“So I’ve been hearing talk about a lady warrior who’s handy with a blade. I’m not such a slouch myself – maybe she’s up for a little challenge? In this day and age, there’s no sense fighting each other, not when there are so many monsters to hunt. What I suggest is that we have a competition to see who can bag the most Gorgonopsids and Gertrudes.”

Client: Captain Deliah

Difficulty: 3/3

Quest Item: Chipped Fang X 10, Motor Oil X 15

Available: After you complete Quest 5: Slay the Machine and Quest 8: Revenge Has Teeth
