Port Atraige is the first town that the player encounters in Wild Arms XF; it is located in the Kingdom of Elesius. Clarissa Arwin and Felius Arwin sail to this port town in pursuit of the criminal Rupert Dandridge who stole a special sword that was a family heirloom their mother used to carry with her. Upon arriving in the city Clarissa and Felius know very little about Elesius and this acts as their introduction to the kingdom.
Notable Establishments and Locations

This is a basic store run by the Merchant Olrof who is somewhat ambivalent about what it means to be a seller of weapons; he is assisted by a store-minder and a drifter named Connie. 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.

This is a synth shop run by a forger named Robb; at the beginning of the game Robb is ill and the shop is not accessible to the player. Their is also a mixing girl and a port worker under Robb's employ. 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 Port side Pub
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. At the beginning of the game Clarissa has no need to hire Drifters and the Drifters more than likely wouldn't follow her anyway; this option isn't accessible to the player until after Clarissa assumes the identity of Princess Alexia Lynn Elesius.
