Villager Requests

Raising your Chemistry level with villagers, and proceeding through the story of the game, will require you to complete requests. For the individual villagers, you'll learn more about what the person's goals are when they ask for your help. The items that the person will want you to retrieve will be produced by your farming efforts, caught while fishing, excavated while mining, or collected by chopping trees.

screen shot

You can see the full list of your accepted requests by pressing the X Button on your Nintendo 3DS and then selecting the Requests button. You'll find a list of All active requests, a list of your story-based requests, a list of individual requests (which are listed below), and a list of requests that you have completed. Press the Y Button after you have selected a requests to see the info about the items that you have been requested to retrieve. You cannot cancel a request once you have accepted it.

The person cannot be walking around in the desert land when you want to give them the item for their request. The villagers must be in Skytree Village, either inside their house or walking around town.

If you have higher quality items that can be used to meet the criteria for the request (e.g., you have Great Marguerite for a request for Marguerite), you will be asked if you want to use that item when you go to turn in the request. If you select "no," then you will need to move that item to your farm storage so the game will use the normal-quality item instead.

When you are working on a request, when you see the prompt that reads "Your request progress has been updated," press the X Button to quickly launch the information about the request without having to open the X Button Menu.

Each villager and magical deity (except the Harvest Sprites) have a series of requests that become more challenging as you complete each one. Marriage candidates have up to 8 unique requests and normal villagers have 5 unique requests. After you complete their unique requests, the people will give you repeatable requests themed to the season that you received the request in (spring, summer, fall, or winter).

Request #5 will not become available until after you have restored the seventh Skytree.
