Mira and the Elderly Guard’s Next Chapter is a side quest in Octopath Traveler 2 that you can take on after you complete Throné’s story. To initiate this quest, talk to the Elderly Guard near the entrance of Wellgrove, Leaflands. It appears Mira has taken off, and he needs your help finding her.

    Recruit the Elderly Guard

    When speaking to the Elderly Guard, he mentions that Mira mentioned a gondola before she left. This is a clue as to where to go next. However, you’ll need to take the Elderly Guard with you, so use a Path Action to recruit him.

    Once recruited, it’s time to head out to this gondola.

    Where to Find Mira

    The next step in this quest is to visit the Guide near the Ropeway, which is located in the Deserted Highroad. It doesn’t matter which way you come from, so you can fast-travel to either Lostseed or New Delsta, though the former is the quicker route.

    The Guide will mention that he saw a little girl not too long ago. This is Mira, so agree to ride the ropeway toward Lostseed. Regardless of which side you come from, the cutscene takes place from the New Delsta side of the ropeway.

    Walk up the stairs and past the save point. You’ll see a girl walking up the next flight of stairs. Follow her, and climb up the ladder in the tower. At the top, you’ll find Mira, and a heartwarming cutscene will take place.
