Quest Visions. We mentioned earlier about the collectibles that can be found all over the game world and are represented as blue dots on the ground as you explore. Collectibles can be used for completing quests, using in the collectopedia( We will detail this later), as well as for trading and selling.
A neat feature in Xenoblade is that on occasion when you come across a new collectible, you might get a vision that you will need the collectible later for a quest. Sometimes visions will even let you know how many of the collectible you are going to need for the quest. This lets you know to hold on to the collectible instead of using it for other reasons.
