Main Walkthrough

A sandy, somewhat run-down town filled with people who weren't wanted elsewhere, Sai is a stop along the road to the southwestern areas of the western continent. As with most towns there's plenty to see and do here before you move on, and a few of your characters have storyline business in Sai.

You'll most likely reach Sai by heading South from Canabrine Bridge. Follow this route to the Western Conning Creek Coast, then head west until you hit the Southern Sai Sands. Sai is in the north of this final route.


Sai's Armorer, Inn, and Tavern are all right near the entrance to town. The Provisioner, however, is over in the East District.

Of perhaps greatest importance to the average visitor is the dojo in the north of Sai. Speak to its master and he will give you a Warrior License. This allows you to change characters other than Hikari into Warriors as a Secondary Job. You can receive two additional licenses from him by mastering the Job with two characters.


  • On the west side of Sai you'll find the exit to the Sandflow Pass. This is a Danger Level 16 area that's part of Castti's second chapter, and it remains inaccessible until you begin her story.
  • On the east side of the East District you'll find steps leading to Dragonridge, a Danger Level 34 combat area. Don't enter this place prematurely, as the enemies here are much stronger than anything found in the fields south of Sai.


  • There are barricades beside the entrance of Sai. Slip between the one on your left and you can walk west to find a chest containing an Inspiriting Plum (M).
  • Next to the Tavern is a slope up to a house. Beside the house is a chest containing a Wind Soulstone (M).
  • Look atop the orphanage-esque building on the west side of the East District. A chest containing an Herb of Revival is sitting on the roof.
  • There's a Caretaker blocking a door in the north of the East District. If you find a way around him - which can be a bit tough for characters less than level 30 or so - you'll find chests containing a Tattered Dress and Tattered Shoes in the room at his back. There's also a Dancer's Journal that sounds like it could mean something to Agnea.
  • In the north of the East District are two chests that you can't reach when you first travel to Sai. If you speak to the nearby Master Carpenter and complete his Side Story he'll repair the building, allowing you to get at the chests. The one to the left of the Master Carpenter contains a Battle Hatchet, while the one up the stairs contains a Refined Sword.

NPCs - Day (Sai)

  • The Townsperson by the entrance of town carries a Feather Mantle, a Silver Shield, and an Olive of Life (M). Inspect him to learn Easier Inquiries, which will make chatting up the rest of the folks in Sai easier. He knows Ultimate Crescent Sweep and is incredibly powerful, so fight him at your own peril.

  • The Elderly Man in front of the Armorer carries a Healing Grape (M) and a Curious Antique. He knows the Pray Skill.

  • Inside the dojo you'll find a Former Disciple. He's carrying a Giant's Blade, an Imperial Helm, and an Energizing Pomegranate (L). He knows the Rend Earth Skill. He's also incredibly tough, and if you try to Mug him he'll probably wipe the floor with you at a low level. Remember this guy for much, much later in the game if you want to fight, hire, or rob him.
  • The two people in the Tavern whom you haven't seen already are carrying a Bottle of Befuddling Dust, a Shadow Soulstone (M), a Foget-Me-Do, and a Light Coin Pouch. The Soldier knows Discount at the Inn, while the Townsperson charges a lot for... absolutely no knowledge of value. The Soldier knows the Skill Rage Slash, while the Townsperson knows Rally Troops.
  • There are two Soldiers on the road leading towards the East District. They're carrying a Great Blade, a Crested Greatshield, a Champion's Garb, a Strong Axe, a Skull Helm, and a Tough Nut (M). The Soldier on the left knows of New Equipment for Sale if you ply him for info. The guy on the left knows Improved Offense, while the guy on the right knows Steel Defenses. Both are quite tough, and not worth fighting until you are a fairly high level.
