What is the Collectopaedia?


The Collectopaedia is an encyclopaedia of sorts in Xenoblade Chronicles that allows you to log collectables from each area for rewards. As you pick up items from collection points, you will come across a variety of items known as collectables that are different from regular materials used for side quests or sold at vendors. Try and collect them all for beneficial gems or gear that will help you in your journey across the Bionis and Mechonis!

How to Complete the Other Collectopaedia

The final page of the Collectopaedia known as Other consists of Collectables that can only be obtained through trading with NPCs throughout the game. However, not only do you need to trade with NPCs, you must also meet the required affinity rating for each area by completing side quests. Once you have met these requirements you will be able to trade with the NPC and obtain the Collectable provided you have a Collectable of equal value, as these can get pretty expensive.

We are currently gathering information for how to complete the Other Collectopaedia, so keep checking back here!
