Starting Location: Rat Problem
Find the wererats and kill them
Mark the quest on your map and head north. Go up some stairs, into the interior of a rounded room with a green floor, and go straight ahead and duck under a pipe to come out into an open area. Kill the wererats, which are low-level and simple fodder.
Return to Item Store Owner, talk to him
After killing the wererats, run back to the Item Store and speak to the owner.
Go back to rat area and kill doomrats
Then, go back through the pipe to the outdoor area and three doomrats will have appeared. They’re slightly tougher than the previous rodent foes but should still pose little trouble at this stage.
Return to Item Store Owner
After killing them, the game gives you the option of returning to the Item Store automatically, or you can walk yourself if you wish. Either way, he will give you 5 hi-potions, restore your HP and MP and offer you a discount on some shop items.
This finishes the Rat Problem side quest in Final Fantasy VII Remake.
