Tales of Arise Bibliophile guide: How to find all 5 books for Tigrina

This lady loves books.

Who has time to read books while saving the world? Tigrina, the librarian in Autelina Palace in Tales of Arise asks you to find five books during your quest. These items also happen to be the weapons used by Rinwell. It’ll take you almost the entire game to complete all of Tigrina’s requels, but it’s well worth the ordeal.

Completing the quest is the only way for you to get the Pancake recipe, which grants you an Ore Up L effect. After eating Pancakes, you will extract more materials from mineral deposits. It’s a must-have food item if you’re looking to craft powerful weapons and accessories later in the game.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bibliophile sidequest.

How do you start the Tales of Arise Bibliophile quest?

You can first obtain the Bibliophile quest by walking through the library found on the first floor of Autelina Palace in Menancia. You’ll need to have reached the point in the story where Lord Dohalim has joined your party.

There will be a librarian in a green dress standing by a bookshelf. That’s Tigrina. Speak to her to begin the quest. You’ll obtain small rewards every step of the way.
