Southern Plains Quests & Major Events Walkthrough

There are no Clients for Quests that roam around in the area, but a few quests will require NieR to gather or harvest materials that can be located in the Southern Plains. 

Act II Quest

In Act II, NieR will hear of a large Shade terrorizing the Southern Plains, though this Shade will be hard to catch as it is said that it has a tendency to appear very rarely on cloudy days, and there is no set schedule to the random weather patterns. If the Shade is not present, NieR might have to exit the location and come back several times until it spawns.
