Tips and Strategies

This is a list of important things to do in the quest The Pauper Prince. Read on to find out which of them is crucial to proceeding.

  • In the beginning, Cindy will be giving you the Overworld Map, which will become a key tool for your survival. Refer to the map always when looking for magic sites (fire, thunder, ice) or when searching for a campsite.
  • Always choose to camp over staying at an Outpost or caravan camper, especially when you're short on gil to use on better things like weapons or items.
  • Sabertusks are always fast and like to circle around. Look to link up with your teammates when you find yourself cornered.
  • You'll also receive your first item from Cindy, but items are usually found on the ground in this location, as well as other outposts.

      Hi! Thank you for your question :)
      Noctis needs to sneak behind the Black Chocobo until Ignis distracts it. The player should keep the chocobo inside his field of view to see if it is looking around, if so, Noctis needs to duck (hold square). Keep on doing this while also moving towards the chocobo until Ignis distracts it. While it is distracted, pick up the glasses then run away before the timer ends.
