While Shin Megami Tensei V does have its fair share of complex sidequests, it also features many simple ones that do not require much time to complete. And this is not a bad thing at all, considering you can get some additional EXP points and nice rewards for only a minimal amount of work and effort.
Among these simple sidequests is the Stones of Malice sidequest. Here’s everything you need to know to complete it as quickly as possible.
How to Complete the Stones of Malice Sidequest in Shin Megami Tensei V
The Stones of Malice sidequest can be started by speaking with the Zhen that can be found to the north of the Sukiyabashi Leyline Fount in the Chiyoda ward. You can find the demon’s exact location on the map below.
The Zhen will ask you to bring two Poison Gems. These items can be easily found as enemy drops, or by digging up items indicated by a Quest Navigator or by opening Treasure Boxes. If you don’t use items much during fights, it is extremely likely you will already have more than two of them in your inventory.
Once you have the required items, speak with Zhen again to hand them over and complete the quest. You will receive a Dispel Charm and 10,000 EXP points as reward. From now on, you can get one Dispel Charm every time you bring the demon two Poison Gems as well.
