Treasure Sphere Locations (Archylte Steppe)

IMPORTANT NOTE: The treasure spheres containing the charms on the Archylte Steppe can mostly be reached without a Chocobo, but are guarded by powerful monsters. It's unlikely you'll be able to claim these accessories during your first visit to the Archylte Steppe.

  • Fire Charm: The southwestern section of the Archylte Steppe, the Western Benchland has a large area to the south. Check the westernmost part of this subsection for a treasure sphere.
  • Ice Charm: The southwestern section of the Archylte Steppe, the Western Benchland has a large area to the south. The Ice Charm is slightly west of the center of this subsection.
  • Lightning Charm: This treasure sphere can be found just after crossing into the Western Benchland from the Central Expanse.
  • Water Charm: After completing Mark Mission 12, a new area will become available south of the Central Expanse. Follow it all the way to the end to claim a Water Charm.
  • Wind Charm: Look in the northeast region of the Archylte Steppe's Central Expanse.
  • Earth Charm: The northeast section of the Archylte Steppe, the Eastern Tors, hides this treasure sphere at its easternmost edge.

Treasure Sphere Locations (Other)

  • Ice Charm: After defeating Hecatoncheir in Mah'Habara, continue along the main path. You'll soon come across a treasure sphere containing an Ice Charm.
  • Water Charm: If your party is tough enough to defeat the Ceratosaurs in Sulyya Springs' Subterranean Lake, examine the edge of the water to cause two islands to emerge. One contains the Water Charm, but is guarded by powerful monsters you may not be able to defeat on your first visit to the area.

Treasure Sphere Locations

  • Whistlewind Scarf: In Chapter 9, the perspective shifts between two parties. After the second segment with Sazh and Vanille ends and you're back to Lightning and company, immediately turn around and check the far wall of the room for a treasure sphere.
  • Whistlewind Scarf: The treasure sphere sits at the southernmost point of Yaschas Massif, in the farthest chamber of the Paddraean Archaeopolis.
  • Speed Sash: Starting in the Central Expanse area of the Archylte Steppe, head west until you cross into the Western Benchlands. Turn north until you find yourself in the Eastern Tors, and continue north into a small secluded area that contains a Speed Sash.
  • Collector Catalog: After defeating Dahaka in Taejin's Tower, a Menhirrim will activate granting you access to the seventh floor. Go there to find a Collector's Catalog along the main path.
  • Champion's Badge: In the Siren's Park area of Chapter 12, turn around just before leaving for Leviathan Plaza. Take the left-hand path, then take your first right and follow the path to the end to claim the Champion's Badge.
  • Collector Catalog: After completing Mark Mission 30, a new area will become available to explore past Aggra's Pasture in the Archylte Steppe. You'll need a Chocobo to get there. Once you arrive in the Haerii Archaeopolis, stick to the right-hand wall until you come upon a treasure sphere. Open it to get a Collector Catalog.
