Main Walkthrough

Location: The Hideaway (ship)
Petitioner: Josselin
Unlocked: Complete On Balance and begin Back to Their Origin
Reward: Model Airship, 30 Renown

There are two prerequisites you need to fulfil to begin this side quest:

  • First, you need to complete On Balance, a side quest from earlier in the game.
  • Second, you need to progress through Back to Their Origin, one of the final main quests in the game. It will have you speak to several NPCs in the Hideaway. Once you're done talking with Jill a bunch of new side quests will pop up, including Aiming High.
Head to the Atrium. Here you'll find the three kids from On Balance, and they're discussing Mid. Speak to Josselin and they will express their concerns over Mid, who seems absent and sad most of the time. They want Clive to check in on her.

Head down into Mid's Dungeon and you'll find her working at her desk. Apparently Mid isn't depressed at all - she's just busy trying to make her ship, the Enterprise, fly. She enlists Clive's help in getting it done. Head to the Mess and you'll find a Cursebreaker named Ronan standing at one of the tables, and he'll give you a hint for what you need to do.

You need two components to fulfil Mid's request:
  • First up is oil. Travel to the Auldhyl Docks, south of Martha's Rest, and check the boathouses near the Obelisk. The middle one has some Shipright's Tallow. Check the shack to the south of the boathouses to find more tallow.
  • Next is the shell of a Desert Tor. Fast Travel to the Fields of Corava (if you've been keeping up with your side quests you can use the Dravozd or Kretov Obelisks) and check in the north of the fields. There's a ruined village here called Uld Bidza, and the Desert Tor is idling out front of the buildings. It fights the same as any Adamantoise. Defeat it to receive an Adamantoise Shell, Sharp Fangs, and a Meteorite.
Take the tallow and the shell back to Mid in her dungeon. She appears to be missing one last piece for her prototype. Speak to Josselin again and he'll give you a Brass Cogwheel. Take it to Mid to trigger a cut scene, and complete the quest.
