If you head to the valkines, you'll find a floating star. Do not examine it yet since this will bring you to an optional boss fight against Gloandrake. Its a LV82 dragon that's an incarnation of the wind Valkines. And yes, there are two others found in the Water and Fire valkines respectively.

Head to the next room and check the shining object in the rubble to the left to get the request item: Ship Model.

(The Mystery Seed)
Turn over the ship model to the maid in the Lhant Manor for Asbel to get his costume title Honorary Knight.

Check the skit when you go to the savepoint in the inn. (Just Between Us Guys)
Oswell Family Vault
In shuttle mode, scan the narrow valley south of Oul Raye (X: 2.836, Y: -308.583) to find this area. After landing, you'll have to defeat the vault's guardian. It should be a very easy battle at this point so just defeat it with ease. After the scene, Hubert will earn his Scion of Oswell title.
It's time to loot the place. To the west, you'll find chests containing Panacea Bottle x2 and Eleth Bottle EX. Down to the east you'll find Peach Gel x2 and Life Bottle x3. Enter the vault next.

Check the savepoint inside the inn for a skit (The Smell Test)
You may complete some of the requests here as well. (Check the sidequests section for the complete walkthrough of completing each quests)
You can now create two new plushies for Lara. If you've been following the walkthrough, then you should have given her six before reaching this point. The other plushies location are found below as well:
Moji-kun Plushie – Barona, beside the bar

Go to the savepoint for a skit (Two Birds)

Activate the first two valves then continue to the right. Make your way down and grab 555 eleth units from the chest along the way. Exit to B11 then go around to the backdoor again.
Grab the Hazardous Liquid from the chest to the right then continue to B12. Open the chest to the left to get a Venomous Needle. There's also a hidden chest to beside that chest. Open it to get the Book of Expansion. From there, you can just take the main elevator to return to the entrance.
Fendel Glacier Ruins
Head to the second savepoint deep inside the dungeon for a skit. (Music Makers)
Continue to the boss room. The floating star there will allow you to challenge the third and strongest of the valkines dragons. Forbrawyvern is a LV121 (moderate) fire dragon with around 495K HP. If you're struggling keeping yourself alive in this battle, it may be a good idea to try challenging it a little later.
Defeating it will award you with Bahamut's Tear and Fybrowyvern's Cryas.
There's an opening to the left. Enter it and find an Arcane Bottle from the chest by taking the right path when you reach the fork. Continue to the left path to find another split in the road. Take the path to the left to find an Elixir. Continue forth for another split. Go to the left to find some gald inside.

You can find this hidden location in these coordinates (X: -367.196, Y: -159.583)
Check the starfish plushies to the right for a discovery (No. 77 Sunscreen Rangers) and skit. (The Beach Brigade) Talk to the receptionist to the left and choose to use the pool. Watch the following scenes. After that, Cheria will earn her Alluring Temptress title.

Check the shining object in the middle of the tube floater to the left of the water slide to get the Inner Tube attachment.
Exit back to the lobby and approach the floating star for a sub-event. You'll now have the option to search your character swimsuits over Strahta.
View the skit in the savepoint (Midnight Ramblers)
Check the counter behind the item shop to find Cheria's swimsuit. Purchase it for 100,000 gald to recover it. Cheria will acquire her Seaside Angel title.
Also, you can challenge the Carter in the eastern part of the town to get new items and titles, as long as you have collected more Magic Carta cards. There is really no shortcut way of winning other than practicing. One effective tip is to remember a unique keyword for each character card you have in your possession and of course, remembering their faces. It may take a few tries but it is doable.
Normal Mode – Race to 200 points
Winning but the opponent has a score (1st time) = Book of Cuisine
Winning flawlessly = Sophie's Great Pirate title
Hard Mode – Race to 300 points
The challenge in this level is that several cards are on top of each other and you have to carefully but quickly select them without accidentally selecting the cards above them. This is a bit frustrating, especially when the opponent AI doesn't make this mistake. Also it pays to hover your cursor to the bottom cards so you can identify it beforehand.
Winning but the opponent has a score (1st time) = Nature's Scarf, Carta Shark title for Pascal, Busybody title for Cheria, skit (A Winning Combination)
Winning flawlessly = Cheria's Magical Bee title
If you talked to Justin in North Yu Liberte Port, you'll find him near the inn. Talk to him to receive Carbon Rod.
Talk to the man near the entrance to retrieve Malik's Swimsuit. He'll get his Lifeguard title
Head to the savepoint for a skit. (What Goes Thump in the Night)
Head to the savepoint for a skit. (The Troll Still Burns)
Check the vase to the right of the item shop to find Asbel's swimsuit. (Vest-Dressed title)
Inside the Rockgagong
Head to the southeast portion of the dungeon to find a Felonfake enemy. Defeat it to get Hubert's swimsuit (Six-Eyes)
If you haven't done it yet, it will be a good time to attempt and steal the Rockgagong Fur from no other than the Rockgagong itself. You have a 25% chance to steal it. First, you have to prepare. Asbel, Sophie and Pascal have moves that has a chance to steal. I'll suggest using Sophie since you can just spam her B-Arte, Sword Assault. The following titles and books will also help:
Sophie's Pilferator title (Steal probability up) – Mastering it will boost the effects
Book of Finesse (Doubles the odds of stealing items) – Acquired from the password-protected chest in Zavhert
Book of Serendipity (Doubles the odds of gaining items you haven't acquired yet) – Inside a chest in Fendel Research Laboratory
Basically what you want is to steal the fur and run away as fast as you can. Take note that taking a direct hit from the rockgagong's attacks will result to an instant death. When you see it raising its arms, hold your guard and continue attacking. After getting the fur, you have to escape. Do this by running outward the battle area's blue ring until you see the escape gauge.
Steal and Run
Strahta Desert Ruins
Head to the savepoint for a skit (Evenly Matched)
Go to the valkines and check the chest behind it to find the request item: Liquisilk Fabric
There's a floating start in front of the valkines where you can fight an optional boss, the dragon called Duplewyrm. This is a LV104 dragon (moderate) / LV95 (normal) so unless you're near that level, I suggest avoiding fighting this boss for now. If you're able to defeat it in battle, you'll receive Dragonbone Darts for Cheria and Duplewyrm's Cryas.
Dragon of the Water Cryas
Go to the underground ruins and go to the southwest and fight an enemy called Torch Elemental. This looks like an ordinary fire elemental so just engage them and defeat them until you recover Sophie's swimsuit. (Beach Kitty title)
Exit from Oul Raye then take the path to the right to reach this new area. You should be able to handle the enemies now though you should still be careful since they still hit hard. Follow the straight path and you should find a chest to the left. Open it for a Mastery Tonic C. Further along the road, there's another chest containing some gald.
Continue along the path and you'll encounter some Blast Helmites. Defeat two waves of them to obtain the request item: Abandoned Cargo and Pascal's Free Spirit costume title.
Grab the Arcane Bottle from the chest near the turtlez merchant then save your game. Check the green slot on the large entrance then insert the Amarcian Key you acquired earlier in the Balthus Citadel.
Go downstairs and enter the first room north. Examine the panel to power the place up. Before entering the room to the right and routing the power, go downstairs to the left and approach the savepoint for a skit. (A Show of Gratitude)
Engage the Pooka Helmet north and defeat it to finally get Pascal's swimsuit title. (Deep Sea Diver) Enter the room north and approach the rotating object ahead for a skit. (That Old Familiar Feeling) Open the chest to get Life Bottle x3.
Backtrack to the stairs and enter the room to the right. There are two doors here so route the power so it reaches both doors to the right. If you route the power to an empty square, it could make an item or enemy appear. In this room, routing the power to the two squares nearest to the doors will reveal two chests containing an Eleth Bottle EX and Crystal Seashell. Enter any doors to the right.
Rotate the switch to route the power to the unpowered conduit and exit to the next door. This time, you'll be in another room with more switches. This “puzzle” is rather very simple so I won't be spoon-feeding you the details. Let's start on the right side of the room. Check the image below to know where the chest is located (the other squares contain enemies) and how it should be routed. Open the chest in the middle for 900 units of eleth.
On the left side, open the chest for Grape Gel x3. Continue south once both powers are routed.
Before taking the stairs, continue to the right to find a chest containing some gald. Go downstairs and follow the path until you reach a door. Exit to the west and you'll be in another large room with a similar setup. The square to the northeast has an enemy while the one in the middle right contains an All-Divide. The chest to the middle left contains a Clear Core and the lower left square contains an Elixir.
Once you have routed the power to two doors, enter the door to the north first. Use the savepoint here if you want, then loot the Hourglass from the chest. For now route the colored lines so that they'll merge and create a purple line. Route the purple line to power up the door.
Enter the corridor then enter any of the doors to the left. Here's you'll find a larger version of the colored panel puzzle you encountered a few moments ago. In this room, you'll have to direct the colored lines so they'll pass through all panels with the corresponding color. If two colors pass through the same node, it will create a new color. All panels must be lit and the door powered up before it can be opened. The puzzle's pretty easy. Still, the solution is provided in the video below. Don't forget to deliberately pass the lines in the empty squares to make the two chests to the northeast and middle left appear. Open them for 1 Gald (Yes, seriously) and the Book of Solitude. Continue to the newly opened door.
First colored puzzle
Examine the artifact in the corner for a new discovery and skit. (No. 76 Heat Ray Cannon B) (Patching the Cracks) You can take the portal to warp to the entrance and restock. Otherwise, just backtrack to the savepoint then back to the large room. Take the door to the south this time.
Enter the next room to the right and you'll find three doors with colored conduits. Enter through any of the rooms to find a larger and intimidating version of the colored puzzle room you encountered earlier.
In this room, you'll have to direct the colored lines so they'll pass through all panels with the corresponding color. If two colors pass through the same node, it will create a new color. In the areas with eleth lines of three colors, a single line can contain two colors maximum. If three colors pass through the same line, all lines will be reset and you'll have to start over. You may check the video below to learn what colored lines should pass to what switch and panel.
Second colored puzzle
After the door opens, defeat the enemy guarding the two chests and loot them for a Mastery Tonic EX and Hero Staff. You can now use the portal to return to the entrance.
Shuttle Crash Site
You'll find this in this coordinates (X: -381.555, Y: 129.488)
Approach the crash site for a skit. (Belated Apologies)
Go to the right of the crash site and you should find a hidden chest in the far end. Open it for Sophie's Silver Vestments.
Equip your best armor and damage reducing titles before checking out the floating star. You have to attack this humanoid until you deplete its HP. Once its HP is drained and it becomes a “?”, brace yourselves and guard against its explosion. If the explosion kills you even when you're guarding, you'll need to come back later when you're a bit stronger or when you have better equipment. Or you can simply set the difficulty to easy mode and guard once it raises its Nova barrier. Take note that it can still kill you if the explosion caught you off guard.
After the battle, you'll obtain the request item: Proof of Another World.
The dungeon's layout is now different from before. From the shuttle, go to the right, then enter the room to the southeast to find a red chest. Open it to get a Book of Audacity.
Enter the hole then go left twice. You'll find a chest to the south containing Rare Tunic. Examine the floating star for an event. You'll obtain the request item: Data Recorder. Sophie will gain her Version 6.1 title.
Continue to the left and you should find a savepoint. Open the chest to the northwest to get a Drop Bottle. Other than those changes, the rest of the dungeon is pretty much the same so you can now leave.
Skit by the savepoint (Target Practice)
Humanoid Research Center
There's a skit in the savepoint outside the laboratory in B4 (Just Between Us Gals).
Continue to B2 and before you reach the laboratory room, there should be a path going up. Take that and follow it as it turns to the right. Enter the room you'll find and you should see the floating star.
This will only become available after getting the memory core during a sub-event in Telos Astue (you can trigger it before leaving using the shuttle for the first time) Now you'll have to collect the necessary materials. You'll need two each of the following:
Soaring Crystal (Pretty Feather Torn Page)
Overgrown Crystal (Anonymous Seed Torn Page)
Formless Crystal (Hazardous Liquid Rare Metal)
Hyperdense Crystal (Dangerous Liquid Lump of Clay)
Artificial Crystal (Working Gear Rare Metal)
Moist Crystal (Water of Absolution Common Metal)
Here's the general list of the base materials needed:
Torn Page = Harvested from Discovery No. 33 Daunting Book in Sable Izolle
Rare Metal = Harvested from Discovery No. 63 Mechanical Scrapyard in Snowshroud Ruins
Lump of Clay = Harvested from Discovery No. 70 Unsettling Garden in Region 66, Fodra
Common Metal = Random pick-up item. Once you got it, you can reproduce it by using the eleth mixer.
Water of Absolution = Discovery No. 11 inside Barona's Sanctuary
Pretty Feather – Drops by Desert Eagles in Strahta Desert West, Harpies in Fendel Borderlands
Anonymous Seed = These can be stolen from Filifolia Cacti and rare drops from Mandragora.
Hazardous Liquid = Common drops of Red Slimes and Mega Stars inside the Rockgagong, or rare drops by ropers in the Wallbridge Ruins.
Dangerous Liquid = Common drops by Equitoids and Veritoids in Bathus Citadel
Examine the floating star again once you have the materials. Mecha-Sophie will be born and Pascal will get her Brainiac title.
Skit at the savepooint near the boss room (A Desolate World)
Enter the boss room and examine the floating star there. You'll get the request item: Drill and Malik's Model Soldier title.
If you're able to feed all the hungry cats you came across, you'll be able to access this secret place by talking to the last cat that will appear in Lhant before heading for Ghardia Shaft. From hereon, you can access this by talking to any cat you have fed before. In case you lost track, here are the cats' locations:

Head to this location to get the Katz Decoder. In case this location doesn't bring up anything even after scanning it, you need to visit the Katz Korner at least once and talk to the old man there to get the coordinates. This will allow you to communicate with any Katz especially those tending the shops in the Katz Korner. You'll also get a Katz Klothez armor. Loot Milk x3 from the chest before leaving.

Riot Peak Guardian
After the battle, you'll also get the Victor's Badge and unlock a new skit as well. (Cry Babies)
The Riot Peak Master Class will become available as well. In this mode, you'll fight without items and players will be swapped per round. When you reach the top floor, you'll be fighting Veigue again but on a one-on-one battle.
