What Is Stardust?
According to the information you’re told in the game, Stardust is a miracle stone that will make one’s wishes come true if you collect them all. In total, there are 50 Stardust in The Legend of Dragoon. Essentially, Stardust is The Legend of Dragoon’s version of collectibles. They are hidden in seemingly random locations all throughout the different towns and kingdoms you visit.
Rewards for Collecting Stardust
The Stardust alone won’t actually do anything for you. Instead, you’ll eventually run into an NPC named Martel who is trying to collect them all. Her goal is to use the Stardust to heal her sick daughter. By giving certain amounts of Stardust to Martel throughout the game, you will receive the following rewards:
- 10 Stardust: Physical Ring (raises maximum HP by 50%)
- 20 Stardust: Amulet (doubles maximum MP)
- 30 Stardust: Wargod Sash (raises SP gain by 50%)
- 40 Stardust: Rainbow Earring (prevents all abnormal states)
- 50 Stardust: Vanishing Stone (banishes Faust’s apparition, allowing you access to an optional boss)
Luckily, Martel can be found in multiple locations across the game. You can find her in these places:
|City||Specific Location||When She Arrives||When She Leaves|
|Bale||In the house to the left of Lavitz' mother's house||When you first leave Bale after visiting King Albert and Lavitz' mother||Once you begin the Hero Competition|
|Fletz||In Kaffi's bar||After the second time you visit with Kaffi and a night passes||Once chapter three begins|
|Deningrad||To the left of the open area||After the Divine Dragon attacks the city|
|Rouge||Upper level of the village to the north||She will be here when you arrive|
