Scarletite Summary

How To Find Scarletite

I will provide a list of Notorious Marks and side quests you must participate in to obtain Scarletite. The hunts will challenge you, but with the correct use of Clive’s abilities and skills, you can eliminate them.

A few hunts in FF16 grant you a rare crafting item. Hunts are magical beasts that you find across the world map. The ones that drop Scarletite are Dozmare the Griffin, Fastitocalon, The Ten of Clubs, and Holy Trumpitour.

1. Hot Water Side Quest

“Hot Water” is a side quest that players can activate while completing the “Riddle of the Sands” main story quest. During the main mission, players will be asked to complete a mini-activity, “Follow the Crystals.” After you are done with it, the side quest will activate. 

Completing the side quest will grant you the Scarletite you seek.

Here are a few steps you must follow to get through the side quest easily.

  1. Start the quest by talking to Xaver in Dalimill Inn of the Dhalmekian Republic
  2. Visit the Baths inside the Inn to find the NPC.
  3. You will be advised to defeat a few Bomb Monsters at Doeznov Terraces.
  4. The location is marked on the map. You may use it to get there.
  5. After killing them all, return to Xaver at the same location.
  6. Interacting with him will give you the mission rewards, in which you will find 1x Scarletite.

  1. Find the Griffin inside Norvent Valley close to the Lostwing. 
  2. This hunt is also part of the side quest “Blacksmith Blues.”
  3. The griffin has three main attacks that will be used frequently against you. 
  4. A Lunging Attack executes when the hunt leaves the ground without immediate animations.
  5. The hunt will cast a Wind Spell if air flows beneath him. I strongly recommend getting out of the radius if you do not want to lose progress.
  6. Nobel Dive’s attack is in action, with Dozmare circling mid-air to release an energy ring.
  7. Dodge these attacks to defeat him and collect your single piece of Scarletite.

  8. If you leave this fight alive, you will receive two pieces of Scarletite for crafting.
