Where are the Rainbow Conches in Sea of Stars? Perhaps reminiscent of the Rainbow Shell in Chrono Trigger, Rainbow Conches are plentiful items you’ll find in yellow-and-blue chests or from completing small mini-quests for various NPCs. You’ll find at least one hidden in almost every area of the game. There are 60 total to find, many of which you’ll have to backtrack for, and about halfway through the game you’ll be able to trade them in for items to help you in your fight against the Fleshmancer. Both the rewards, which we’ve listed below, and where to find them may spoil some of the game for you, so we recommend searching for the ones you missed before you enter the final dungeon. Sea of Stars will make it clear that you’re nearing the end.
