As you collect these conches, you may be wondering what to do with them. I had this question for ages during my playthrough, but after reaching Lake Docarria, I got my answer.

Once you reach this area in the story, you will meet a young girl in the town called Mirna. This collector will dish out rewards to players depending on how many Rainbow Conches they have acquired. These include Accessories to equip, as well as Building Plans which are used in Mirth, a location you unlock in the story.

Additionally, they play a part in the story and later game, but to avoid spoilers we won’t detail that here. Just know it’s worth going out of your way to find them.

The rewards you get from the Rainbow Conches are listed below. We will update this section once we unlock more of the rewards.
