UsesBlow it before the final battle to bring your wagon before you. Can also be used as an item in battle
LocationBaron’s Folly

You’ll find the Baron’s Bugle inside the Baron’s Folly, upon reaching Azimuth Island. This item is optional but will make the final battle much easier for you.

Preparations

  • Have the air balloon.  You’ll need it to reach Azimuth Island. You can get this air transport after you defeat Estark and take the Gas Canister to the inventor in Riverton.
  • Be at least level 30. Azimuth Island has some tough enemies, so you’ll need to be prepared even if you’re just walking outside the town. After reaching Zenithia you should be around this level already.

Reaching Azimuth

After you defeat Estark and find the Gas Canister, take it to Riverton and give it to the inventor, rest at the inn after that and on the next day he’ll have an air balloon for you. With this new way of transport you can reach every place in the game’s world.

Now that you can travel anywhere, you can finally visit the island in the center of the world map. Just go there on the air balloon and land in the middle, you’ll land to the west of Azimuth Town.

Finding the Baron’s Bugle

Rest in Azimuth Town and buy some gear if needed, and then exit town. Head east from there and go around the mountains, circling them through the southern side. Past the lake you’ll find a shrine inside a tiny desert, get inside.

Inside this shrine, walk up and step on the elevator, making it go down to the basement floor. Now go to the right side of the room and climb the stairs, go to the opposite side and climb the stairs again, until you reach the last floor.

From here step on the pit where the elevator used to be and you’ll fall on the elevator roof, allowing you to walk over it. Walk south and go down the stairs you’ll see there to get into a small room with a chest. The Baron’s Bugle is inside.

The Baron’s Bugle is yours! With this item you’ll be able to use your wagon in the last dungeon of this chapter, allowing you to change your line-up and swap party members even during the final battle. This will be a huge help to defeat Psaro the Manslayer, as his fight is many stages long.

This item can also be used as an item in any battle; you’ll summon a stampede of horses that will do light damage to all monsters on the screen. It can be useful for characters like Ragnar, who have no AOE attacks, but other characters probably have stronger spells that do the same thing.
