How To Find Smelly Shoes In Ni No Kuni 2?

This guide will tell you How to Find Smelly Shoes in Ni no Kuni 2 and walk you through The Sweet Stink of Success side quest.

One interesting side quest of Ni no Kuni 2 is Morgan’s request in Side Quest 117: The Sweet Stink of Success, which requires you to find “Smelly Shoes.” To begin the quest, you must head to Evermore Castle and accept Morgan’s request to find her a pair of footwear. These shoes have a stinky modifier that does not have any offensive or defensive power but is crucial to completing the quest and obtaining the reward.

This guide will tell you how to find these reeking shoes in Ni no Kuni 2 and help you locate them. Without any further ado, let’s get started.

Finding the Shoes in Grotto

The best place to get Stinky Shoes is from the first Dreamer’s Door in Grotto. You must travel to Auntie Martha’s cottage; you will find the Grotto next to her cottage.

Enter the Grotty Grotto and head toward the maze. You will find the shoes in multiple places, and they spawn very rarely here, so you need to farm this place multiple times to get the item. Before you begin, ensure you don’t have Rare Equipment selected in Tactic Tweaker settings, as Stinky Shoes down spawn as rare equipment. Kill all the enemies you encounter, as they will drop chests, and you will find yourself in one of the red chests.

Purchasing from Vendor

You can also purchase the item from a dog merchant in the Grotty Grotto Maze. However, tracking him down can be difficult, as he can spawn in many possible locations. Once you find him, you can purchase the stinky shoes from him for 260 Gold.

If you missed the merchant in Dreamer’s Maze, you can find him in Sublime Shrine Maze at level 8 and get a variant of stinky shoes from him for 970 Gold. Another location of the Merchant is guaranteed in the Sundown Forest Dream Maze.

Killing the Main Boss of Dreamer’s Maze

The final way of getting your hands on the shoes is by killing the main boss of the Dreamer’s Room. You will find the boss on the final floor of the maze. Though he has heavy attacks, he will be on a lower level than your character, so taking him out is easy.

Sundown Woods Maze

Use the Dreamer’s Door to get to Sundown Woods, another possible location to find the smelly shoes. Once you’re on level 2 of the maze, you will find the item locked up in either of the blue chests.

Side Quest 117: The Sweet Stink of Success Rewards

Once you’ve found the smelly shoes, use the compass to find the next maze door to exit in Ni No Kuni 2. Return to Morgan and give her the shoes to claim your prize. You will earn 4150 Exp, 46,000 Gliders, and Improving/Determined Gaudy Galoshes.
