This guide will show you how to finish the Lighthouse Restoration side story, as well as how to reach Stormhail City in Octopath Traveler 2.
How to complete the Lighthouse Restoration side story in Octopath Traveler 2
To begin, talk to the person standing in front of the lighthouse in Canalbrine to obtain the “Lighthouse Restoration” side story. Then, add Partitio to your party, board your boat from New Delsta Harbor: Anchorage, and head north. There’s a small island directly above it called, appropriately enough, Lighthouse Island.
Now, if you have people in your party who aren’t in Party, you can see that the Island Lighthouse Keeper has an Aelmorite Reflector in his inventory. But you can’t steal it or rob it if you’re with Throne or Osvald. Also, you can’t finish the quest by taking this person to the lighthouse keeper in Canalbrine. You need to have Partitio buy it for 1,500 leaves, which is easy because the chest on that island has 12,000 leaves in it.
After purchasing the reflector, you can return to the lighthouse to finish this side story. You’ll receive 12,000 leaves as well as a Lighthouse Keeper’s Bandana and a Tough Nut (L).
How to get to Stormhail city
To reach this city, head to Western Montwise Pass, which can be reached by traveling one map left from Montwise, then far left until you reach a save point. From there, head north up the long flight of stairs.
Alternatively, you can travel there from Flamechurch. Continue straight through Eastern Flamechurch Pass until you reach Borderfall. Keep straight until you reach Western Montwise Pass, then turn north.
At the top of the stairs, you will eventually see a man standing in your way. He’ll challenge you to a fight. Bring your best fighter and punch him in the face. He has 6 Strength, so make sure your duelist can handle that. He is weak against Sword, Darkness, and one other physical weapon (staff, dagger, or bow). He has somewhere around 15,000 HP.
Once you’ve defeated him, you’ll be able to enter Northern Montwise Pass, which we’ll need to pass through to get to Stormhail. Fortunately, only one true path exists. All of the other branching paths lead to a few loot chests.
You will be in Southern Stormhail Snows when you exit the cavern. You’re almost there; just take the stairs to the left. But first, talk to the man on the right. You will receive an Attack on Titan reference as well as a chance to obtain the quest item, The Curious Legend of the Great Wall!
With that, you’ll be able to finish the Lighthouse Restoration side story and reach Stormhail city in Octopath Traveler 2.
