While most of the towns in Trials of Mana are easy enough to find, the lost hamlet of Pedda can be tricky to locate due to it not being visible on the map and only appearing at certain times of day. Fortunately, we’ve done the leg work and are here with a guide on how to find Pedda in Trials of Mana.
How to Find Pedda in Trials of Mana
Though Trials of Mana will show you exactly where Pedda is during part of the main quest, it won’t show you exactly where it is on the map after this point.
This is because the town technically doesn’t exist in the same timeline as the one you’re playing in. You’ll need to travel back in time to visit the town when it was still standing, and you can only do this by going to the Jungle of Visions at night.
To do this, sleep at any inn in the game until Shade Time, use a Dream Reed item to swap the time of day instantly or wait until the day cycle progresses naturally. Once you’ve done this, summon Flammie with the Flammie Drum item, and then travel to the Jungle of Visions dungeon marker on the lower left corner of the map.
Once you’ve landed, head straight forward and you’ll find yourself in Pedda during a time when it still stood.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
So, to recap here’s how to find Pedda in Trials of Mana:
- Change the time of day to night, or Shade Time
This can be done by resting at an inn, using a Dream Reed or waiting until the Day cycle progresses naturally.
- Summon Flammie with the Flammie Drum item
With her, you can fly to the Jungle of Visions location in the bottom left corner of the map.
- Land in the Jungle of Visions and head directly forward
After you do, you’ll be in Pedda during a time when it was still standing.
As for why you’d want to go to Pedda in Trials of Mana, it mostly boils down to the gear available for purchase.
You can buy some powerful dragon-based weapons from Pedda’s weapons shop for a high price, and they’ll serve you well even against the secret bosses in the post-game. Likewise, the Armor Shop has gear that’ll keep you well-guarded both in the end-game and post-game, though they too will come at a high price.
Granted, none of this gear will be as powerful stat-wise as the gear you can get from planting rare Item Seeds, but they do come with the benefit of not requiring RNG to get them.
