Main Walkthrough

A tiny settlement on the outskirts of the nation of Ku, Ryu is little more than a glorified campsite. All of the necessities for travel are within arms' reach, and you probably won't spend more than a few minutes here while passing through the region. Ryu is nevertheless a good place to stop early in the game if you want to stock up before heading north or east.

Ryu is the starting point of Hikari, once you've completed the first chapter of his story. You cannot move back to the kingdom of Ku from here. If you chose another character as your party leader you can recruit Hikari in Ryu, though you'll need to help him defeat some mercenaries first.

  • A short walk north of the tavern is the inn. It is also humble.
  • There are item and weapon shops on the east side of Ryu. The Provisioner has the usual spread of items, and some decent ingredients for Castti to put to use. The Armorer is primarily geared towards suiting up Hikari, though Partitio, whom you will recruit in a nearby town, can also make use of this gear.
  • Ryu's sole treasure chest is beside the Armorer's tent. It contains an Empowering Lychee.
