List of sidequests in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

In Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Alm and Celica will encounter people in villages or dungeons that request things of them; typically the retrieval and return of a particular item.

The following is a list of sidequests, their tasks, and their rewards, that appear in Shadows of Valentia. New quests become available every Act with the exception of Act 5.
