Starting Location: Just Flew In from the Graveyard
Find the Watch Security Key Location
Head back to the Abandoned Talagger Factory where we slayed the drakes in the previous side quest, Nuisance in the Factory. The watch security key is in a fixed crate to the west of the factory. See its exact location below:
In the large hall where you fight two Gorgers, don’t go up the stairs but instead go to the far end of this room and hold to open the shutter door. This reveals some crates hidden behind the shutter door. Slice up the crates with to find the Watch Security Location inside. When you pick it up, Tifa will comment “That they key?”.
Open the locked door and slay the Cerulean Drake
Head east, into the room where you killed a group of drakes in the previous quest “Nuisance in the Factory“. There you can open the locked door with the watch security key (interact with green door panel). Behind it you find the Cerulean Drake miniboss. It is weak to Wind Magic. Use Aero spell if you have (reward from doing battle intel repot #2 for Chadley) and hit it with your most powerful attacks to stagger it. Remember you can switch between Cloud and Tifa to unleash their Spells in quick succession, thus quickly driving up the Cerulean Drake’s stagger bar. Should you run low on health, use Cure Spell or a Potion.
Return to Gwen
Once Cerulean Drake is defeated, you get a popup to return to Gwen (quest giver) immediately. Talk to her and she’ll give you a Star Bangle armor piece whilst replenishing your HP and MP.
This finishes Just Flew In from the Graveyard side quest in Final Fantasy VII Remake.
