Part 34: Repine

Main Walkthrough

Cerulean Expanse - Enemies

  • Drone - 132 HP
  • Hoarsemech - 155 HP - Weak to Arcane, Blunt
  • Ronin Cowboy - 55 HP - Weak to Moon, Poison, Sun

After making a quick visit to Repine and checking out Sera├»'s home you'll be on your way to the Cerulean Expanse. A desert that stretches south, the Cerulean Expanse is nigh-impossible to explore unless you grab the Probe from Sera├»'s house. It will beep incessantly as you explore the desert, letting you know when you've found something important. Press the interact button to see what you've found. Once the drone stops beeping you'll know there's nothing else to find in your immediate area.

Head north from the entrance once you reach the desert. There are some Grains and Onions buried in the northwest that the Probe can help you dig up. Dig to the southeast and you'll uncover a pair of Ronin Cowboys, high-defence enemies that are nevertheless not a big deal to defeat if you use your Skills.

Check right in the middle of the sand and you'll dig up a circular device, heretofore called a 'compass disc' with a green dot. The green dot will point you to the exit you need to take on your current screen - in this case, to the east. You'll need to keep unearthing these devices to find your way through the Cerulean Expanse. If you accidentally take the wrong direction you'll head back to the first screen, and will need to begin your journey again.

In the southwest of the Cerulean Expanse's second screen you'll find a chest containing Wireplate Armor. Dig to the south of the northern exit and you'll find some Bones and Meat. In the east you'll find the next compass disc, which will point you towards the northeast.

Dig in the southeast of the third area and you'll unearth two Ronin Cowboys and a Hoarsemech, a returning enemy from the Derelict Factory. Dig a little ways to the right of the northern exit to discover the compass disc, which will point you southeast.

Look south of the northern exit in the fourth area and you'll find a nice crop of Potatoes. Dig near the southeastern exit to find a chest containing 25 gold. Dig up and to the right of the southern exit to find the compass disc, which will point you to the northern exit.

Look in the northwest of the fifth area to find some buried enemies, namely a Drone - another returning enemy - and a Ronin Cowboy. To the right of the northern exit are some buried Onions, and just south of the Onion plants is a buried chest that contains a Croustade. Buried between the southern and southeastern exits are a Drone, a Hoarsemech, and a Ronin Cowboy. Check right in the middle of the fifth area to find the compass disc, which will point you towards the northwest exit.

Dig south and a bit to the right of the northern exit in the sixth area and you'll hit a battle with two Horsemechs, a Ronin Cowboy, and a Drone. The compass disc for this area is near the southwestern exit, and it will point you southwest. Handy.


Check between the northern and northeastern exits in the seventh area and you'll find a bundle of Meat. Near the eastern exit but down a bit you'll find a bunch of Grains. Buried near the middle of the area are three Ronin Cowboys. In the northwest you'll unearth two more Ronin Cowboys and a Drone. Dig directly east of the western exit to find the compass disc, which will point you south.

Dig in the middle of the eighth area to pull up Meat, Grains, Potatoes, Bones, and Onions. The compass disc for this area is a little ways right of the food cache, and it will point you east. This will bring you to your next destination, the Lost Ones Hamlet. Finally.

Return Trip

At this point you no longer need to go through the Cerulean Expanse, and can walk straight through the location on the world map. That said, there's a reason to revisit this place. Assuming you've completed the events of the Lost Ones' Hamlet, return to Repine. There's a hood fellow here, and he will offer cryptic directions that will lead you along a secret route through Cerulean Expanse. The directions are as follows:

  • Entrance - Go south
  • Second area - Three drones in the middle; go southwest
  • Third area - Go southeast
  • Fourth area - Drone Hoarsemech, Ronin Cowboy in the south; go south
Follow these directions exactly (south, southwest, southeast, south) and you'll wind up in a small side area. It is a campsite that's absolutely lousy with ingredients, and there are four chests waiting. They contain an Obsidian Ingot, Adamantite Ore, Question Pack #7, and a Rainbow Conch. Not bad at all.
