All Driftwood locations in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

As you make your way through Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, you’re sure to discover that there are a wide variety of sidequests to undertake. One of these in the Junon region tasks you with tracking down and eventually working with a Wainright. This fellow asks you to fetch him some materials to aid in a job — Driftwood to be specific — and then sends you off with a map that may or may not look a bit confusing. Don’t worry, though — you won’t need his shoddy map when you use our guide below.

All Driftwood locations

To obtain the piece of Driftwood at each spot on the map, wait until your chocobo has a question mark above its head, then hold Up on the D-pad until the location is revealed. Ride your chocobo over to the revealed location and press Down on the D-Pad to dig up the Driftwood.

There are three pieces of Driftwood you need to find if you’d like to get a 3-star rating in the quest, which is worth doing since it will earn you extra rewards. When you’re ready to track down all three pieces, you can take a look at the photos below for the exact locations.

Driftwood No. 1

The first piece of Driftwood can be found in the northernmost area of the region.

Like the best RPGs, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth gets sidequests right
The mayor of Under Junon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Among its many highlights, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth makes simple sidequests a lot more engaging than I had expected. Take an early-game sidequest called When Words Won’t Do. On a surface level, it’s a simple escort mission where players must get a dog from Under Junon to Crow’s Nest unscathed. I did not initially have high hopes for this sidequest due to the poor reputation of escort missions; thankfully, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth defied that fate. To make this optional content more worthwhile, Square Enix gave it a strong narrative backbone.

When Words Won’t Do is actually a story about parents struggling to let go of their kids. Under Junon’s mayor sends players on this quest to help her son and unborn grandchild, and Barrett wonders if he’ll ever be able to let Marlene go during the mission. That’s thematically fitting for an escort mission where you can’t keep something out of your sight.

All Chocobo Gear in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Chocobo Gear

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth gives chocobos perhaps their biggest role in a mainline entry ever, as you'll be using them to traverse every region of the game. Not only do their special abilities help you navigate the world, but various pieces of gear that you can purchase for them can ensure they look good doing it. Even better, this gear aids your chocobo in races so that you stand a better chance at placing in the top spot. Here's all of the Chocobo Gear in the game and how you can round it up.
All Chocobo Gear and how to get it
Most Chocobo Gear can be purchased at tack shops, which are primarily located around chocobo stables. As you progress through the game, new pieces of gear will become available at any tack shop, so you won't need to backtrack to get fresh pieces. Keep in mind, however, that there are some pieces that can only be earned by competing in chocobo races at the Golden Saucer.

To purchase Chocobo Gear, you'll need golden plumes. These are primarily earned from finding and repairing chocobo stations throughout each region, though you'll also get one when catching new chocobos while progressing through the story.
