Legend of Mana Faerie%: Faeries’ Light (The Spirits’ Light)

This is part of a first-playthrough guide using the Faerie story arc. It covers both the original PSX version and the 2021 HD remaster, though some place and item names differ slightly in the latter. You can find an overview of the Faerie% path here.

The Quick Version

Place the Tome of Magic Artifact you got from the previous quest, then go to Lumina and make your way to the lampmaker’s shop in Morning Moon Alley. Hear about her troubles and help centaur Gilbert sell some lamps to the locals. Return to Gilbert with the proceeds, then visit Monique’s shop and talk to her again after some brief cutscenes. At the end of the quest, you’ll get the Trembling Spoon Artifact.

The Details (May Contain Spoilers)

This quest was originally titled “Faeries’ Light” but is called “The Spirits’ Light” in the HD remaster, perhaps to avoid confusion with the Faeries who live in the Jungle (and whose own extensive story arc we are following in the rest of this guide).

Monique’s lamp shop, Limelight, is in the northeast corner of Morning Moon Alley. To get there, go to Bright Moon Alley (the eastern of the two nodes on the Lumina town map) and head northeast. If you found the gem shop, you are close: exit the shop and head directly east to get to Morning Moon Alley.

The only folks in Lumina who buy lamps are the Dudbears, the teddy-bear guys in green caps. To learn their language, speak with the bartender in the tavern at the west end of town. Figuring out the Dudbear conversations is (IMO) a fun little puzzle, and you can’t really screw them up: if you make one of the bears mad (“Gak!”), just run back to the bartender and redo the language lesson to reset their dialogue options. If you get stuck, though, or just don’t want to bother, here are the “winning” dialogue choices for each bear:

Upper Floor of Tavern

  • Dud! (No)
  • Dub! (Yes)
  • Dub! (Yes)
  • Dada Dadda? (lit. “Please lamp?”)

Ground Floor of Tavern

  • Dub! (Yes) the first three times, then
  • Dada Dadda? (offer to sell lamp)

Bright Moon Alley

  • Dud! (No)
  • Dud! (No)
  • Dub! (Yes)
  • Dada Dadda? (offer to sell lamp)


Does it matter what I say to Gilbert when he asks me to help sell the lamps?

Nope! If you turn him down or offer to buy the lamps outright, he’ll still foist them off on you and the quest will continue as though you agreed to sell them.
