"I've not heard any word from Donovan of late. He has always been regular in his correspondence. Until now..." —Bale


Back with Bale is a side story in Octopath Traveler. It is activated by speaking with captain Bale inside the westernmost building in Wellspring, right by the entrance to Western Wellspring Sands.

Travel to Goldshore Cathedral in Goldshore. Use the Inquire/Scrutinize Path Action to glean Donovan's Condition from Bishop Donovan, standing in the nave of the church.

The story ends once Donovan's Condition is shared with Bale.

Bale learned how his friend Donovan was faring and vowed to one day set out on a journey of his own.

Trivia[]

  • Bishop Donovan appears only after completing Ophilia's Chapter 4.
  • Bale appears for the first time after finishing Olberic's Chapter 3 and has the information about a hidden item (Heavy Coin Pouch). However, upon completion of Olberic's Chapter 4 he is temporarily removed from the game and reappears only after both final chapters of Olberic and Ophilia are cleared. Once Bale becomes the client for the side story, his information about the hidden item can no longer be gleaned.
