In Octopath Traveler 2, there are Scent of Commerce quests Partitio can undertake, and the one in Winterbloom involves bringing three musicians to Audley to add a gramophone to every tavern. However, you aren’t given any hints as to where these three NPCs may be. Unless you were playing close attention as you visited different towns in the game, you might have even passed them by without notice.
Here are the three musicians you’ll need to have Partitio bring to Winterbloom for that Octopath Traveler 2 Scent of Commerce tavern gramophone quest. In each case, immediately bring them to Audley’s mansion at the east side of town to have him record their performance. Note that if you use someone other than Partitio to get the NPC in your party, you’ll need to have Partitio and that person in the party at once when going to speak to Audley.
- Guitarist: When you walk into Crackridge during the day, you’ll see the Guitarist at the entrance to town. Now, you can have someone like Temenos guide him or you can do like I did and wait until he goes to his home in the evening and have Partitio hire him for 2,000 leaves.
- Piano-Playing Cleric: When you visit Flamechurch, head to the chapel where Temenos started his journey. During the day, there will be a cleric NPC at the piano. Have Temenos guide them, then go back to Winterbloom.
- Violinist: In Canalbrine’s tavern during the day, there will be a traveling violinist on the first floor. Use Temenos’ guide path action, then go talk to Audley.
Once all three musicians made their recordings, Audley and Partitio will talk. The final product will be dubbed the “gramophone.” You’ll then be able to get records from shops and people to play on it, adding a jukebox function to the game. The three records you’ll get from completing the Octopath Traveler 2 Scent of Commerce Winterbloom route tavern gramophone quest are “Cait’s Theme ~Piano Version~,” “Cait’s Theme ~Guitar Version~,” and “Cait’s Theme ~Violin Version~.”
