Social talk ChatEdit

First meeting
  • Qiwa SQ01 001
    Hey there. I'm Qiwa, the smallest of the Hulu brothers...there are seven of us, so it'll probably take you a while to get used to it, haha.
  • Social talk I've been around and the fishing around Portia is just the best. So many spots to go fishing, and the fish are oh so tasty!
  • Qiwa ED 001
    There are a plenty of rules for fishing! Each type of fish will swim in it's own preferred area, and you'll need different bait to attract them - things like that. Oh, and of course the fishing rod is also very important! Any rod can hook a fish, but only a good rod can bring it in.

If asked before ordering, Qiwa will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Qiwa will just give little hints. In the event that Qiwa does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Qiwa gives. It is recommended to order each of those dishes from different courses, ex. ordering one Appetizer, Meat, Vegetable, Dessert, and Drink course each, rather than five Desserts.

Such visits will earn the player relationship points each time, with the amount dependent upon the relic.
