How to Solve the Octopath Traveler 2 ‘Pilgrim Protection’ Side Story

Side stories can pop up frequently as you complete chapters and journey around Octopath Traveler’s world. Some are incredibly straightforward. However, others can be much easier or even require a certain person around. For example, the Octopath Traveler 2 Pilgrim Protection side story is best tackled when Throne is around to help collect the Sacred Flame Candles.

In order to complete this quest, you need three Sacred Flame Candles. If Throne is in your party, this is easy enough to complete. When it is daytime you can steal these from the two clerics at the small church in Flamechurch and one cleric at Flamechurch: Cathedral. (In Flamechurch proper, one inside the church has one and one outside has the other.

Now, there’s an 80% chance of success when trying to steal the Sacred Flame Candles needed to complete Pilgrim Protection in Octopath Traveler. When Throne was at level 14 and in my party, she passed the checks all three times and took them with no trouble. However, you do get a “grace” period of five failures before your reputation drops in a town.

Once you get all three Sacred Flame Candles, return to the elder outside the church in Flamechurch to complete the Octopath Traveler Pilgrim Protection side story. In return, you’ll get 5,000 leaves, a Fortifying Nut, and a Tough Nut.
