The Shining Pond is a Secret Area in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is located in Satorl Marsh, west of the Dark Swamp. One of Cheryl's son's items needed to complete Mementos of a Lost Son can be found here. It is also important for A Mysterious Delicacy. The path starts in the Dark Swamp area, between the west edge of the poison bog and the ether deposit. Poison damage is inevitable when crossing the pond. However, the poison damage is less serious than the damage taken when walking in the Poison Swamp area.
