Poliasha is a town in Wild Arms XF that is being bullied by the Martial Guard when Clarrisa first encounters it. Many of the townspeople have been taken prisoner and Clarissa must eventually embark on a prison-break. After the success of the prison-break Poliasha comes under attack from the Martial Guard and Clarissa and friends must defend it while not allowing any of the townspeople to be killed in the battle. It is here that Clarissa assumes the identity of Princes Alexia Lynn Elesius for the first time.
Notable Establishments and Locations
A basic item store run by an old man named Brown. In Wild Arms XF the items that are available in a store are limited by how many Item Scopes are in the party's possession, how many Job Classes are available to the player, and overall story progression.
The Drifter's Anchor
This is a synth shop run by a forger named Muehlen; he is away when the player first reaches the city and the store is not accessible to the player until later. At Synth shops players can create stronger weapons, Shields, armors, and items with items they have found in their searches. What items can be made is dependant on how many Item Scopes are in their possession.
The Blue Oyster Lodge
This inn is run by the independent minded Ellen and is a mandatory story visit. Here Labyrinthia fills in Clarissa on a number of important issues and Ellen herself informs them about the dubious state of security in Poliasha. At bars in Wild Arms XF the player can hire Drifters, name them, choose their class, and then use them in battle or send them off on item searches. After saving the town from the Martial Guard Clarissa finds an abundant supply of Drifters eager to join their fallen princess in battle.
Townspeople and Drifters are known to hang out in this plaza and offer background information on the kingdom of Elesius.
