In Code Vein, both humans and revenants roam the world. Most of the NPCs in the game only appear in various locations whenever you’ve activated all the Mistles of a location and have completed its main quest or defeated the boss. Make it a habit that whenever you do complete a location to revisit that explored area for these quest givers to appear and to encounter someone new. It is also recommended that you try to complete all the locations before reaching the final location Gaol of the Stagnant Blood so that all the NPCs will appear in the various locations and it’ll be easier for you to find them whenever you take their requests.
A Unique Material Quest Guide
Third Request: A Unique Material
Location: Outer Crossroads – Ruined City Underground
For Shang’s third quest, you’ll have to clear out and defeat the bosses of the Cathedral of the Sacred Blood. Once you’ve managed to complete the location, teleport back to the Outer Crossroads Mistle at the Ruined City Underground and speak to Shang, he’ll provide you with a task to find an item for him in the depths and he also gives you 1x Map: Swirling Flood. Once you’ve obtained the map, head back to Home Base and speak to Davis to access the Depths: Swirling Flood. Again, you can take the opportunity to try and complete the depths or if you’re not ready yet, you can just follow the marked location of the item where you’ll find 1x Unique Materials. Once you’ve acquired the item, head back to Shang’s location and give him the item – he’ll reward you with 1x Condensed Loss Shard (S) for delivering the item.
