Type Description
Main Quest

Only a single Mothercrystal remains in Storm — Drake's Tail, in the Crystalline Dominion. Clive and Jill set out to breach the borders of the Dominion and infiltrate its capital, Twinside — now the besieged seat of the Holy Empire of Sanbreque.

Onward: Walkthrough

Onward begins immediately after you fast travel to Laetny's Cleft at the end of the last quest.

Proceed through the path. After crossing the bridge, you'll encounter some enemies, so watch out for them. Continue through the gorge, fighting any enemies on the way to the marker. When you get there, watch the cutscene.

Continue down the path towards Boklad. The area ahead is quite large, and open for exploration. When you're ready, head for the marked location. When you arrive, watch the cutscene.

You'll next need to search the market for Goetz who, fortunately, is very close by. Speak to him. After that, head to the Crimson Caravans, which has a red chocobo sign. Once you're there, watch the cutscene. This will trigger a sub-quest called To Catch a Thief. You'll need to do this next, so click the link for the lowdown.
