Main Walkthrough

Prerequisites: Max out Rue's level 2 friendship

Reward: None

Unlocks: Rue level 3 friendship, A Floral Gift

Still interested in making nice with Rue? You'll need to go through the process of filling her friendship bar again once you've reached the second level. Rue tends to stay still a lot in places all over Moonbury, and she doesn't have any completely predictable haunts besides her house. Moonbury Park is perhaps the place you're most likely to find her, though in the end it's best to just whistle up your dog and have it track her down for you.

Once you've maxed out the second level of friendship with Rue she'll post a notice on Moonbury's Bulletin Boards. It appears that Rue's green thumb is eager to get going again, and she wants more help. You can pitch in by joining Rue at her home, in the southwest of Moonbury, from 7:00 to 15:00 on any day of the week.

Rue wants to grow some red flowers - shockingly, it's her favorite color - but the Farmhouse doesn't have any red seeds in stock. You'll need to go out into the wilds of Moonbury Island and procure some Red Orchid Seeds to satisfy Rue's demands. To do this you'll need to have access to Glaze Iceberg, which requires completing the quest Fixing the Cable Car. 

There are three Red Orchid Seeds spread throughout Glaze Iceberg that you need to collect. They're just barely poking out of the snow. You'll find them in the following locations:
  • Just south of Glaze Grotto, along the northbound path from the cable car
  • Just east of Glaze Grotto, near some Roses
  • Further east of Glaze Grotto, between two rocks and north of a tree
Collect all three and take them back to Rue. She'll thank you for the help, plant the seeds, and promise to call you back once they've bloomed. This will unlock the third level of friendship with Rue, and put you in striking distance of a romance with her. The next quest in her storyline, A Floral Gift, will push you even closer to a relationship.
