After the adventure 3 years ago, Lent went on a journey to improve his skills in combat. When he visits the Royal Capital, he meets Ryza's team and gets invited to join the party once again. However, while he used to be very cheerful in the past, he now looks gloomy, unfriendly, and unenthusiastic.
Ryza's party will explore various ruins while they unravel the titular Lost Legends. These dungeon-like areas will house various sorts of puzzles to overcome, and will unlock new field actions for Ryza, such as the ability to ride monsters around the world. Koei Tecmo offers the following description of this ruins exploration.
Throughout Ryza’s adventure, her Exploration Diary will be pivotal when venturing throughout the various ruins, as it organizes all of the player’s discoveries, allowing them to form their own theories and solve every mystery they encounter. As they explore every inch of ruins and complete their Research List while collecting ‘Ruin Fragments’ and “Memory Fragments”, they will unlock clues which will then be stored in the diary. Uncovering clues can be challenging, but thanks to the incredibly useful ‘Compass of Recollection’, players will be able to evoke memories from the ruins that allows them to see the general location of where Ruin Fragments are located. By successfully piecing together the clues, the mysteries of the ruins will become clearer. By solving these puzzles, players will be able to unlock special alchemy recipes to aid them on their quest, along with helping Ryza grow.
