I’ve just defeated the eighth gym and Nora called me to go to Gaea town but I don’t have the Climbing Boots. Am I supposed to have the Climbing Boots or is there another way into Gaea town?
go to amphirite
im pretty sure im wrong but try it
Yep, after the 8th gym go to Amphitrite. You should see Jaern fighting a cultist in the south part of the city
She didn’t say to go to Gaea town: she said she was on her way there, but she saw Jaern in Amphitrite city fighting a damned cultist, so you have to go there.
Sometimes it better to not skip dialogue because it does direct you.
