Desolate Land is a Heart-to-Heart in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It can be found on the road over the dried lake in Elysium on the Upper Level of the First Low Orbit Station. Viewing this Heart-to-Heart is required to unlock the fifth level of Floren's Lavender Drive Special.
Is this really Elysium?
No flowers, no trees, no grass. Just a barren plain of rocks and sand.
Look. I bet that was a beautiful lake once.
But there isn't even a drop of water left.
But there isn't any here.
This place is completely barren.
Some places have a drought now and again, but they still have a little hope. This place...
Maybe something CAN grow!
It may be too dry for seeds here, but...
At first, they probably won't last very long.
But as plants die, their remains fertilize the soil.
They'll be giving their goodness back to the next generations.
It'll take a while. But do it enough times...
and eventually this dead land can be restored to life!
I'm going to do it.
I'm going to bring back the vegetation!
When nature is destroyed, life and everything else is destroyed with it.
Don't people feel any shame when they see places like this?
All life comes from nature. All beings should live in harmony with it.
Why don't people treat it with the respect it deserves?
Why do they let it fall into this state? All life is precious, something to be cherished!
Mortals are part of nature, and I envy them for that. But it angers me to see them show no regard for it.
There are good humans out there, of course. Like you.
But mostly... I just don't understand them.
Well, it's early days. Maybe someday, humans and Blades will come to understand each other.
Maybe one day, Blades will understand humans, and humans will understand Blades.
Maybe we all just need a little more time to understand each other.
Maybe in time, mutual understanding and harmony will blossom... Wow, that's deep. I better write it down.
I actually feel like you understand me pretty well already.
That's why I feel like I can keep going even in the face of sadness.
Thank you for everything!
