Final Fantasy Wiki

Just Flew In from the Graveyard is an Odd Job quest in Chapter 3, "Home Sweet Slum", in Final Fantasy VII Remake, taking place in the Sector 7 Slums. After Cloud Strife and Tifa Lockhart dealt with a drake attack in an abandoned factory in the Sector 7 Slums, the scrap dealer encouraged them to take a job from Gwen in the Pillar Plaza.


Head to Gwen in Pillar Plaza and talk to her, where she will ask Cloud to fight a drake in the Abandoned Talagger Factory in a warehouse on the eastern-most end. In order to do this, Cloud needs a security key first, which is obtained by smashing crates in the southwestern end of the factory area near the vending machine. Once done, use the door near the eastern end to access the warehouse where the drake is fought.

The target is a cerulean drake, a flying enemy. The best strategy against this enemy is to use spells, or punches from Tifa, and once floored by staggering or pressuring it, unleash Cloud's Braver, or one of Tifa's combos imbued with Unbridled Strength (Rise and Fall is often best) to deal most damage. After it is defeated, return to Gwen for the reward, a Star Bracelet.

Hard mode tips[]

The cerulean drake is more durable than before, and due to the MP restrictions in this mode, it is best to equip weapons increasing Cloud and Tifa's Magic Magic so as to maximize their spellcasting. Using Wind Materia Wind Materia and casting Aeroga Aeroga can deal significant damage to the drake and also pressure it, leaving it vulnerable to ground attacks.
