Where to start FFXV Secret Quest

First off, you’ll need to complete the main story and get the Flying Regalia upgrade. If you haven’t done it so far, you can find all the information needed in our How to get FFXV Regalia Type-F Guide.

The next stop is Lestallum. Make sure it’s night. Head to the eastern part of the city, just north of the Restaurant (Tozus Counter), east of the Arms Vendor (Culless Munitions) and the Shop (Moatte’s Odds ‘n’ Ends). You’ll find a set of stairs in this part of the city, going up.

On one side of the stairs are rocks, and on the other is a house. This is where you’ll find a window you can interact with. You’ll see the “Listen” interaction option. Use the appropriate button to start it. This action starts the secret quest – Stealing the Past.

Secret Quest Rewards

Stay alert, because you’ll get more than the 50 000 exp promised in the quest. The first step is to head to the Rock of Ravatogh. From there fly off with the Regalia. The goal is to land on a landing strip in the mountains. This exact spot would be extremely difficult to find if it weren’t marked on the map. If you take a look at the map, north from the Rock of Ravatogh, you’ll see a bright yellow straight line. This is where you have to land. If you are still having problems, we’ve made a separate guide about it.

Once you successfully land, head north. After four groups of enemies, you’ll get to the marked area. Head east from here. Find a gap between the rocks. Follow this path. Soon enough, you’ll get to the man-made structure. This is the entrance to the secret dungeon Pitioss.

Go up the two sets of stairs, jump over a small gap. After the first strong turn right, you’ll see an item on the ground. This is the Magitek Core – the main quest reward. As you pick it up, the quest will end.

Magitek Core is an important upgrade material for the Drillbreaker machinery weapon. It is the main ingredient in the “A Better Drillbreaker Quest”.
