Discuss Unlocked Topics at Rest Spots

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 - Discuss Topics

Once you reach Colony 4 during the events of Chapter 3, you will unlock the in-game Investigation feature. This will allow you to focus on certain conversations happening inside liberated colonies by pressing ZR. Listening to conversations will unlock Topics that you can discuss at any Rest Spot in the game.

While discussions are usually for unlocking Side Quests, some Topics will simply reward Bonus EXP. Make sure to periodically check and discuss gathered information whenever you stop at Rest Spots.
