Part 1: The Carline Canopy
Miounne has a new chat option called "Whispers in the Wood". This is a continuation of your previous adventure in Souls Gone Wild. After a brief cutscene with the two mysterious adventurers you met earlier, Yda and Papalymo, you are informed that your mask for the purification ritual (which will remove your woodsin) is ready, and that you should head over to The Oak Atrium to try it on.
Part 2: The Oak Atrium
The Oak Atrium is the Carpenters' Guild in Gridania. Once you arrive, speak with A'naidjaa. A cutscene will commence in which Zezekuta will let you know that your mask is ready and ask you to try it on. After you try it on, Fye will burst in and some more dialog commences. After Zezekuta learns what you heard from the moogle, he asks you to go outside and speak with Fye. You then enter an instance.
Head left after you exit the guild and walk down the deck until you reach the corner. Go left again around that corner and you will encounter Fye having a conversation with a moody punk named Khrimm.
After that exchange, speak to Fye, and she will ask you to find out something for her.
After your cutscene with Fye, head back to the entrance to the guild for a cutscene with Yda, Papalymo, and Zezekuta.
After all of this, you should see your NPC Linkshell glowing. Answer it to speak with Miounne.
Part 3: Greatloam Growery
Approach the Greatloam Growery and watch the cutscene. Brother E-Sumi will ask you to find pearl clover fruits to lure the moogles out of hiding and marks it on your map.
The Black Shroud
Leave through the White Wolf Gate and head towards Camp Emerald Moss. Once you get far enough along, you will encounter a Pudgy Moogle in a cutscene. After this you enter an instance.
Approach the Pudgy Moogle to trigger another cutscene.
After this, you leave the instance. Time to head back to the Greatloam Growery. Once you arrive back at the growery, speak with Opyltyl for a cutscene.
Use your NPC linkpearl to speak to Miounne.
Part 4: The Quiver's Hold
At the Quiver's Hold, speak with Nonolato.
Approach the training area for a cutscene.
Your NPC linkshell has started glowing again. Use it to speak to Miounne.
Upon arrival, speak with Miounne and select the "Whispers in the Wood" option. She informs you that you are probably better off training than chasing after Dunstan in the Twelvewood. She lets you know that the archers sometimes take on recruits for their missions, and suggests you head out with them. In the mean time you are given 15,000 gil and Whispers in the Wood is now complete!
When you head out into the Black Shroud and you encounter the moogle at the stump, do NOT teleport out. Walk out of the zone to get a proper end to this stage of the quest.
Gridanian culture holds a special place for those to whom the elementals of the forest entrust a task─oft calling them the beckoned. But young Khrimm refuses to believe such nonsense. Papalymo and Yda have gone to the Oak Atrium in hopes of finding Khrimm and speaking to him. You, too, must visit the Carpenters' Guild to see about the crafting of the mask you are to wear at the purification rites.
Zezekuta of the carpenters has showed you the mask you are to wear in the purification rite, explaining that the woodsin which clings to a soul is transferred to the mask by the power and magic of the dances. He warns of the danger of a mask breaking should the woodsin be too great for it to bear. Your conversation is interrupted by the entrance of a young girl named Fye, who is searching for Khrimm. You still bear a message from the moogle to deliver to Fye. Go to the Acorn Orchard just outside and see that she hears it.
You find Khrimm and Fye speaking to one another in the Acorn Orchard, and overhear talk of Fye's elder brother Dunstan and his tragic fate of being turned into a wildling. Fye claims that she is making a new mask for her brother, refusing to give up hope of cleansing him of his woodsin. Khrimm, however, claims to no longer even believe in the existence of the elementals, and the conversation ends with his leaving. Go and speak to Fye, and deliver the moogle's message.
Fye is shocked to hear the moogle's claims that the mask is not broken, having thought it to be the sole reason her brother and Khrimm's parents were turned into wildings. She asks you to speak to the moogles again if you can, and ask if there is any hope of freeing the soul of a wilding from the forest's clutches. Return to the Oak Atrium and see if there is anything Zezekuta can tell you of Fye, Khrimm, or their families.
Arriving at the Oak Atrium, you find Papalymo and Yda speaking with Zezekuta, and learn that Dunstan and Khrimm's parents both stirred the greenwrath of the elementals in the course of battling the Garleans. Zezekuta still holds your mask in anticipation of the purification rites, and assures you that your cleansing should pose no problems. Contact Miounne yet again by linkpearl, and see what she has to say.
Miounne informs you that Brother E-Sumi-Yan of the conjurers has returned to town to oversee the purification rites, and can be found at the Greatloam Growery. He asks that all those partaking in the rites come and see him.
At the Greatloam Growery, Brother E-Sumi-Yan seems concerned over young Fye. To aid in her wish to find a way to save a wildling, he teaches you where in the forest you may find -- a known favorite of the moogles, and your best chance of attracting one near enough to speak to it.
You locate one of Brother E-Sumi-Yan spoke of, which quickly attracts the attention of a moogle. In return for the delectable, the moogle agrees to ask the elementals themselves if a wildling soul can be returned from the wood. Wander around nearby until the moogle is finished conversing with the elementals.
You follow the sound of an axe, and at its source find Khrimm chopping at a tree in his attempt to prove that the elementals do not exist. He claims to have seen Fye's brother and his parents in the forest, and that they were not wildlings. It is this that has caused him to cease to believe in the elementals. The moogle entrusts you with yet another message for Fye─this time from the elementals. They ask that she stop wandering the forest. Return to the Greatloam Growery and see the message delivered.
You report all to Fufucha, and have come to be regarded as one of those beckoned by the forest─a fact evidenced by the elemental's entrusting you with a message. Fufucha hurries to take word of this to the conjurers. See to it Miounne learns of your newfound prestige, as well.
Miounne informs you that archers from the Gods' Quiver have visited the Carline Canopy asking after you. Visit the Quiver's Hold and see what business they have with you.
Nonolato of the Archers' Guild directs you to enter the halls of the Quiver's Hold and speak with the commanding officers.
You come upon Brother OAppPesi of the conjurers and Bowlord Lewin of the archers, and learn that it was indeed Fye's brother Dunstan who brought down the Hedge. Dunstan was once one of the lancers, but was later exiled from Gridania, and is now thought to be searching for his sister. Bowlord Lewin requests that you lend your strength in hunting down Dunstan and protecting the forest. Speak to Miounne and see if she has any advice on the matter.
Miounne has asked that you come and see her at the Carline Canopy. Make your way there to see what she wants.
