With many side quests exploring the back story of many NPC’s, there is a lot for the players to explore in Nier Replicant. At a point in the game, players will have to choose between 2 quests – Talk to Popola or Check on Yonah in Nier Replicant. Both the side quests are important so let’s see which one you should select and how will it affect your game.
Talk to Popola or Check on Yohana in Nier Replicant?
Although you get options, the choice doesn’t matter much. No matter which one do you select it won’t make much of a difference on your game in the long run. If you go to talk to Yonah you get to know that her health is deteriorating as her disease is progressing. You go to Popola in search of some medicine, where she tells you about the Shaman. The Shaman is a fish that can be caught at the seafront. As per Popola, the liver of the fish has some nutritional component that can suppress any pain. After talking to her you go on your way to get the Shaman.
If you go to Popola first she will ask you to go to the Junk heap to finish a bunch of quests. These quests will help you get some gold and upgrade your weapons. Once you come back to Popola after finishing the quests, she informs you that Yonah is looking for you. This takes you to the start of the other quest where you get to know about her sickness.
While both of these end up sending you to the beginning of the other. It doesn’t matter much which one you decide to do first. The only difference is that whichever quest you do first decides what will you upgrade, your fishing skills or your weapons.
That’s all for this guide on which to choose – Talk to Popola or Check on Yonah in Nier Replicant. Do check out the linked article to know how to complete the fragile delivery quest in Nier Replicant.
