Make your way to Arrowhand and find Marallo. He is stood on a raised platform near a fire pit. Speak to him to begin the Errand. He'll tell you about a cache of Greenshine that's guarded by machines, and says it's your reward for your actions against Regalla.

You'll need to fly to a mountain southwest of Arrowhand. You can also fly a little further south to find a Horus; if you do this, you can pick up an Energy Cell, and then drop it onto the machines at the Greenshine site, which will make the encounter a bit easier.

Once you reach the mountaintop, there will be a group of machines, including Longlegs, Widemaws, and Clamberjaws. Drop the Energy Cell on top of them if you have it. After defeating the machines, you will need to look for a Metal Flower, which is sat in the northern part of the area. Hitting the Metal Flower a few times will summon a Dreadwing, which you will need to defeat before you can continue.

Once it's down, return to the Metal Flower and clear it. Below is a small cave with 1 Greenshine Fragment and 1 Greenshine Slab inside. After picking these up, the Errand is complete.
