Main Walkthrough

The starting point of Temenos, Flamechurch is the hub of religious activity in Octopath Traveler II. Home of the Sacred Flame and the order that sprang up around it, Flamechurch is a must-visit location for a number of different chapters, and will remain important throughout the game's plot. 

Flamechurch is located in the west of the Crestlands, and is easily reachable from New Delsta and Cape Cold if you plan to recruit Temenos early on. It is divided into two areas, the town and the cathedral, and this article will explore both locations.
