  • Head to Gravell and find a Boy with a bizarre item called “STuFfeD ToY” in his inventory. During the daytime, he hangs out in town, but at night he hangs out by a cliff to the left of Gravell proper. Once night falls, you will have to wait about two minutes for the Boy to reach your desired location.

  • Next, fight the Shadow Boy. You do not have to defeat him, thankfully, but you do have to break his 15 shields. Luckily, he’s weak to Staff attacks, which Temenos can use. He’s also weak to Lightning, so making Temenos a Scholar is a great option for this fight. The Shadow Boy has an insta-kill attack, so you only have about four turns to do this!
  • Upon breaking your opponent, you’ll notice a glowing blue object near the tree. Congratulation—you’ve got the Sunshadow Staff!
