Recommended Level: 15

The second chapter of Ochette's tale splits in two directions, and if you want to take the lower level path first you'll need to head to Conning Creek. Despite being a seaside town with a little harbor Conning Creek is not a port, and to reach it from Toto'haha you'll need to sail to Canalbrine, on the western continent. Travel west to the Canalbrine Bridge, then south to Western Conning Creek Coast. Conning Creek is to the east of here.

Assuming Ochette is in the party when you arrive you'll be prompted to begin her second chapter right away. If you'd rather put it off you can trigger the chapter by visiting the local Tavern, speaking to the Tavern Keeper, and choosing Hear a Tale. The Tavern is northeast of the entrance to Conning Creek.

Ochette will fangirl all over Conning Creek's seafood, then begin the search for Cateracta, creature of legend. After an encounter with a confused vendor she'll hear something down at the harbor. Follow the northern path from Conning Creek's entrance, then head east along the beach. Ochette will ID the island off the coast as the source of the sound. A woman named Alpione will stop Ochette from checking it out, however.

Switch to day and Provoke Alpione to fight her. You can use Ochette's companion to target Alpione's weaknesses and chew through her without too much trouble. You'll receive an Invigorating Nut (M) for defeating Alpione. Head east across the dock and you'll find a point where you can debark, sailing north to the island. Check by the cave...

... to, uh, find Cateracta. Whoopsie. Alpione, a little calmer now that she understands the situation, will bid Ochette follow her into the cavern.

Alpione will be standing within sight as you enter this seaside cave, though you'll need to wind your way through it to reach her. There's a save point to the north, and if you take a right before you reach it you'll find a chest containing an Empowering Lychee (M) off to the side. Carry on north past the save point, following the torches.

There's a bridge up ahead. If you take the northbound path to the right of the slope to the bridge you'll find a hidden passage at the far end. It will bring you to a chest containing a Rabbit Shield. Cross the bridge and you'll see a chest on an upper ledge, which you can reach by heading west of the torch path and around a rock pillar. The chest contains a Healing Grape Bunch.

Head south and down the stairs ahead. On your left when you reach the bottom is a chest containing 6,000 leaves. To the right you'll arrive at Alpione's campfire, and she will explain what happened to Cateracta. She'll then point you north, where an egg sits by itself. Approach the egg to gain a new little companion for Ochette. Chapter complete!

From this point on Ochette will receive a new, permanent Provoke command in Acta, her serpentine charge. Acta is similar to Ochette's first companion in that it is always available, doesn't take up room in Ochette's roster of monsters, and can't be Prepared. Acta is not terribly useful at this point in the game, but... perhaps that will change some day.
