Intervention Quests and Champion Jewels & Medals
Intervention Quests are accessed from the Girl's Teamroom in Nine Wood Hills. Each quest costs two Arma Gems, and you trade these with the Girl Who Forgot Her Name. You get Arma Gems from:
- Drops in various Boss battles
- Enemies in the EX Dungeons
- Completing Colosseum battles
There are a total of 41 Intervention Quests to complete. There is a chance that the Intervention Quest achievement won't unlock. If this is the case, just replay a couple of the beginning quests, and it should unlock.
Champion Jewels and Champion Medals
In addition to spending Arma Gems to complete Intervention Quests, you also need to purchase Champion Medals and Champion Jewels.
You unlock Medals during the course of the game, and you need to purchase them for 2 Arma Gems.
Champion Jewels are special Mirajewels that Reynn/Lann can equip. They allow you to take on the appearance of Champions when in Lilikin form. You can only equip one Champion Jewel at a time, and it must match the gender of the chosen character (or Reynn can't equip the Warrior of Light's Jewel, for example). They cost 2 Arma Gems as well.
