Quest Walkthrough

Morris, the client from whom you will receive the side-quest named Play It for Me is located in the central area of Yusnaan.

If you enter Yusnaan for the first time after Day 1, and between the required hours, open your map and from Yusnaan Station, move south, crossing the Glutton’s Quarter. Next, move east and then south and you will traverse Central Avenue, reaching a large Cactuar Statue.

West from the Cactuar Statue you will see a ramp that leads to Armor Alley and in the middle of the ramp, on a box, the quest-giver, Morris. Morris is a boy wearing pink pants, and a green crown on his head. He plays a trumpet, and when you approach him you will start the side-quest.

For this quest you will receive an item named Musical Treasure Sphere Key, and your objective is to use it to open the three hidden musical spheres.

Unlike the spheres you have found while playing the Suspicious Spheres quest in Luxerion, the musical spheres emit sounds. In other words you can hear them if you are close enough. Even so, if you don’t know their locations, the musical spheres can be hard to find, and you will waste a lot of time looking for them. In order to get them faster activate the Chronostasis ability and follow the order below.

For the first sphere, retrace your steps back to the Cactuar Statue. While facing the ramp east from the Cactuar Statue, on your right side, at the bottom of the ramp, is a red ladder.

Climb it and open the sphere behind the red boxes to get the Nostalgic Score: Refrain. From your current location, head west to the Champion’s Quarter and you will see a large cage SE from the General Store near The Slaughterhouse.

Go around the fence and look for the second musical sphere behind three red crates. Inside you will find the Nostalgic Score: Chorus.

For the third musical sphere, go north to the Yusnaan Station. Open your map and north from the General Store (blue maker) you will see a small entrance similar to a triangle. It is a dead end and inside, behind more red boxes is the third sphere which contains Nostalgic Score: Coda.

You will have to jump over the crates to see it. With the three Nostalgic Scores in your hand, head back to Morris to complete Play It For Me and get all associated rewards.
