Octopath Traveler 2 A Present for My Son Side Story

How to Finish ‘A Present for My Son’ in Octopath Traveler 2

There are times when Octopath Traveler 2 NPCs will be vague when it comes to what will complete their side stories. They’ll offer a vague idea of what they’re going through or what they want. But their profiles and request won’t be obvious. This is true of the Thoughtful Father in Winterbloom and his “A Present for My Son” Octopath Traveler 2 quest.

When you talk to the Thoughtful Father, he’ll only explain his son is going off to study to become a scholar. He wants to give his kid a gift. However, he doesn’t offer any idea of what you should possibly find for him.

Now, the “A Present for My Son” Octopath Traveler 2 side story took way longer for me than it should have, because I didn’t think to go to Cape Cold to check. (I figured the town was too small and not known for “scholar” characters.) However, on the far west side of town in a house is Retired Scholar with a Silver Quill in his inventory. Steal or buy it.

Head back to Winterbloom and give it to the Thoughtful Father. An event will trigger. You’ll then get 300 leaves, a Magic Nut (M), and a Refreshing Jam.

Octopath Traveler 2 is available for the Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC. A demo is available.
