Reef Nebulae are enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles. They are members of the Nebula family, and can be found at level 43 in many places at Valak Mountain. They drop Snow Elements, two of which are needed for Colony 6 Reconstruction.


Reef Nebulae appear all the way down the mountain. One can be found by exiting the Sealed Tower and turning right. Four Reef Nebulae can be found at Nofol Tower.

Additionally a group of them can be found with Vague Barbas near Nagul Waterfall. This group can be located by starting at Zokhed Pass, heading north down the mountain, bearing east up hill, then crossing the natural bridge to the southwest, and finally continuing south to an oval-shaped area southeast of Nagul Waterfall.
