This time we’re taking a look at the quest A Night Time Visitor, which has you gathering two broken broadswords. You’ll likely need to play a mission several times before you can gather them and turn in the quest.
Generally, you can use the collection records option – visible from the Start menu – to find which age items can be collected in (you have to be in the guild hall to see it). The problem is, if you’ve never scavenged the item before the records menu is useless. Worse yet, your Tenko will not be able to collect items on a scavenger run that you haven’t previously found in the world. In other words, you need to actually pick up a broken broadsword before you can take advantage of those perks.
Once you pick up a single broken broadsword during a mission your Tenko should then be able to find them in the correct age.
The broken broadswords can be found in the Age of Grace. There are a lot of different missions that take place in the Age of Grace, but the first time you’ll encounter it in single player is chapter 1. I recommend playing the Floating Skulls mission which has you slaying ten Blazing Souls. You can play either the single player version of the mission or you can play online – in single or multiplayer.
That being said, any mission that takes place in the Age of Grace will do. Broken broadswords are a level 3 material so they should be pretty easy to find.
