You can find the quest at Cetus Island, Navia. The quest is given by Melo, standing beside Slayer at the center of the island. You must fast-travel to Cetus Island and head toward the center; the game usually marks quests on the map once you are near, but for this one, you must be very close to Melo’s location. When you find Melo, talk to him and start the quest.

When the quest starts, you will need to go to Banges Black Market and ask Hopkins for a language chip. Hopkins will make a deal and ask for three firecores. If you have them already, hand them over to Hopkins. If not, you can go to the area east of the black market, and you will get some there. You need to break the firey red ores and loot them from inside.

After you give Hopkins the firecores, he will trick you into getting something more valuable for the language chip. Go to Cetus Island and tell Melo about the situation. After that, ask Claire for a language chip and return to Melo’s location. He won’t be there, and you will again need to head to the black market to find Melo.

Head to the black market and exchange Clair’s chip for a language chip with Hopkins. Go to Cetus Island and talk to Claire. She will tell you that Melo’s language malfunction is fixed. Doing so will complete the quest, and you will get XP points and two SSR Colossus Arm shards.
