How to locate the Cactuar Rocks in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Each of the Protorelic pieces is hidden within reactors in the Corel Region. Opening these reactors requires you to locate a Cactuar Rock using a Cactuar Statue. To do this, you must first locate a reactor. Once there, pick up the Cactuar Statue next to the reactor’s entrance.

Holding up on the D-Pad will make Cloud raise the Cactuar Statue aloft, revealing a beam of light that points in the direction of the Cactuar Rock. Follow this light beam to where the rock is for each of these Phenomenon Intel mini-quests. Once the rock has been found, interact with it to gain the ability to open the reactor door using Cactuar magic to break the wards.

To complete this minigame, you will use either Yuffie or Aerith to defeat different types of Cactuar. In order to rack up more points, you will need to defeat these creatures quickly using their weaknesses. The weaknesses are as follows:

  • Magituars – Hit them with magic attacks
  • Gladiatuars – Hit them with physical attacks
  • Lightuars – Use the Luminous Ward
  • Darktuars – Use the Shadow Ward

There are other types of Cactuar as well such as the rainbow Cactuars which grant you more time and Gold Cactuar which are worth more points. As long as you collect enough points for the lowest rank within the time limit, you will complete this world intel.

Returning to Kid G

After completing the first two Protorelic challenges, you will be told by Kid G that he needs to set up the other trials. Unfortunately, this will take some time and you won’t be able to return to complete these tasks until chapter 12. In the meantime, you can always complete combat assignments, excavation intel, fiend intel, Moogle intel, and more.

That is everything you need to know about the Corel Protorelic. Be sure to also check out our Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth tips and tricks to help you out around the world. You can also check out how to steal the Tonberry King’s Crown in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.
