Tip #1: If you skipped doing any quests in this zone at all, do the Sealegs one. No really. Ghostcrawler is REALLY FAR DOWN IN THE WATER.
Tip #2: Failing tip number 1, bring those Nagrand Cherries in your bank that you kept for some reason not even you can explain.
If you fail to do one of those two things, you may end up felling quite silly if you spot the spirit beast but then have to go back and do the quest real quick in order to NOT DROWN.
No, I’m not speaking from personal experience, why are you looking at me like that?
