  1. You also get a second Ancestral Light by finishing the side quest for the monkey Kii in Silent Woods. He’ll want you to bring a dead branch from his ancestral tree to someone who knows plants. When you come back to him second time around saying that you can’t help his dead tree, he gives you the last seed which you will then have to give to the little beaver who you go to to plant seeds, and he’ll plant a new Ancestral Tree in the Wellspring Glades, near the Spirit Well. Using that Ancestral Tree will grant you the Ancestral Light.
