The Valley is a location in Breath of Fire IV.

Role in Breath of Fire IVEdit

The Valley is, in reality, a sandflier graveyard, full of wrecked sandfliers. Ryu and Nina come here to find sandflier parts so the Sarai blackmarket can repair them into working order. This is so Nina can return to Cray to repair their own sandflier, which got damaged by Sa Ryong at the start of the game. In the depths of the valley lives an old man with his dog. He can loan both shovels and his dog for 25 Zenny each. The dog is able to sniff out anything that is buried in the sand, while the shovel is used to dig it out. However with each use, regardless if something is successfully dug up or not, the shovel weakens, making it more prone to breaking, thus several attempts may be needed in order to unearth all the items. Renting both the dog and shovel may be costly at this point in the game, but doing so helps minimize the amount of wasted attempts to dig up the parts and items. Once the sandflier parts are dug up, Ryu and Nina can return to Sarai, thereby ending this area's portion of the story.

Later in the game, the player can return to this area if they want to dig up various scrap parts that can be crafted into armor for Ershin by the blacksmith in Mt. Glom, though one will generally only find things like Iron Scraps and Glass Shards. However, it's not a guarantee that the minigame will produce new items every time, so one needs to be careful in how much time is spent here, though by that point in the game, the player will have amassed a large amount of Zenny, so the cost won't be an issue.
