Upon completing the main quest "Correcting Mistakes" in Final Fantasy 16, players will gain access to Alliance Reports. These can be activated by speaking with the locked Lank Carrier at the Fat Chocobo diner in the Kida hideout. These special reports provide players with a list of all currently available side quests, including one called "Dying on the Vine."
"Dying on the Vine" is a relatively simple side quest that takes place in the Lostwing area of Sanbreque. It involves helping one of Quinton's workers who has encountered some problems in the vineyards. To complete the task, Clive and his friends must deal with the pests, after which they will receive a fairly decent reward for their efforts.
How to Complete Dying on the Vine in Final Fantasy 16
Players of Final Fantasy 16 will have the ability to initiate a side quest "Dying on the Vine" by conversing with Emil, who can be located in the wine cellars of one of the many buildings in Lostvinge. He will explain that a group of malevolent rodents are consuming all of his grapes and that he will be in significant trouble with Quinten if he cannot find a way to save his harvest. Naturally, he will implore Clive to undertake this task on his behalf.
If players agree, their primary task will be to eradicate the insects that have infested the stacks of Golthand. They can reach there on foot from the basement, but thanks to the game's quick loading, it will be much faster to use the fast travel feature to the obelisks of the Orabel Valley. Upon arrival, players will discover the aforementioned winemaking wasps swarming around and must destroy them using any available means. As is often the case with insects, fire can be incredibly effective, so players should make use of the aeonic abilities of Ifrit or Phoenix if necessary.
Once players are done with the wasps, they can quickly return to the Obelisk of the Lost Wing, and then make their way back to the wine cellar to speak with Emil. As one might expect, he is delighted that Clive was there to save him and offers a rather decent reward as a token of gratitude. Players will receive 16 experience points, ten sharp fangs, and one black blood, which can be sold to any merchant for 400 gil.
Final Fantasy 16 is now available exclusively on PlayStation 5.
