"I'm a traveling merchant! I've got plenty of rare items at reasonable prices, so come on by anytime you want!"
―Yue, Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon

Yue (ユエ, Yue) is a bachelorette in Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.

Profile

Personality

Yue is a traveling merchant, she is sharp-witted, but still warm and friendly. She is independent, but like Mana, she constantly tends to remind that you should buy something from her store. She loves her work as a merchant, but enjoys her time in town visiting the friends she's made more than she likes the wilderness travel. Despite how frequently she travels through rough terrain, Yue cares about her appearance, and is especially proud of her kimono, which stands out from Norad's local fashion.

Appearance

Yue has fair complexion with blue eyes and long, straight black hair. She wears a red flower on the right side with angel wings hanging on it. Her appearance is Japanese-based, and she wears a short-cut, pale blue kimono with purple and red detailing and long, ribbon-tied stockings.

Relationships

Yue speaks often of the close friendships she's made on the road with people who open their homes to her, but she doesn't seem to have many close friends in Alvarna. Yue stands by herself at festivals, and always camps outside a dungeon at night rather than staying at the Eagle Inn or in one of the characters' houses. She does visit with the villagers though. She has conversed about Julia and knows about her tastes in fashion, and she taught Mana some recipes from her homeland.

Yue the "back-up wife" for rival marriages. If Kyle marries a girl who has a rival, Yue will marry the rival instead. For instance, if Kyle marries Julia, Max will marry Yue instead. This allows all of the new 2nd Generation characters to be present regardless of who Kyle marries.

Marriage

YueSwapTicket.png
Yue Swap Ticket
CURIO
A ticket that can be swapped for a prize at Yue's store. Apparently, it is very unique.*

Yue's proposal item is the Yue Swap Ticket. It can be obtained by raising Yue's LP to 10 and completing all her requests. Yue has no special condition to raise her LP; talking to her, giving her gifts, and the other methods for love and friendship will work.

Story

During the first generation, Yue's role is as a travelling merchant who visits Alvarna to sell her wares. She gets more chances to chat with Kyle as he starts to explore the dungeons where she spends her mornings and evenings. Like Rosalind, Yue doesn't have any particular struggle that Kyle needs to help her with. She is happy and proud of her life as a travelling merchant.

In the second generation, Yue will continue to sell her wares but will also sell furnishings for the school, such as the Forge and kitchen appliances. Moreover, if Kyle married a bachelorette who would have otherwise gotten married to a rival, then she will fill in for her and marry him, sticking around in town rather than continguing to wander.

Yue's Shop

Yue has various exclusive items for sale if you can track her down.

First generation

Yue sells birthday items in the first generation. The order of her inventory matches the order of villagers in the Relationships status screen. You can also check which birthday gift a character prefers on their character page. Yue also sells her own birthday gift - Cabbage Cakes.

Second Generation

"Welcome! Come in!
I've got lots of treasures you won't find anywhere else! Have a look around.
"
―Yue

In the second generation, her stock is updated, and she starts to sell upgrades for the school in addition to the birthday gifts. What is available varies from day to day. You must have expanded the school by adding a Workshop in order to purchase any of Yue's additions. Kitchen appliances also require the purchase of Kitchen first.

*If you buy the Large Kitchen first before you buy the Small Kitchen, and you select to buy the Small Kitchen, Yue replies by saying "If you have a Large Kitchen, you don't need a small one." Thus, it might be a better idea to save up for the Large Kitchen, to avoid spending more G to upgrade the Small Kitchen to a Large Kitchen in the future.

Gifts

Yue is exteremly easy to please with gifts. She likes most coloured grasses and almost every foraged item except for branches, rocks and some herbs. Her favorite gift is Aquamarine, a common jewel in Trieste Forest.

Schedule

During festivals, Yue is in Alvarna - Pond. The rest of the week she moves between different dungeons in the mornings, but always goes to Trieste Forest at night.

  • Mondays: Trieste Forest
  • Tuesdays: Blessia Island
  • Wednesdays: Messhina Valley
  • Thursdays: Padova Mountains
  • Fridays: Trieste Forest

She appears in town at 9:00 AM most days.

In the second generation, her schedule only changes if she is married. In that case, she spends weekdays before 9:00 AM and after 8:00 PM at her spouse's home instead of travelling to a dungeon. If Kyle married Mana or Alicia, then Yue's schedule is the same as the first generation.

Trivia

  • On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 PM, Yue leaves her dungeon location, but does not appear anywhere else. Presumably, she traveled to some other town.
  • Yue always spends the night at a dungeon entrance, even though Alvarna has an Inn.
  • Since Yue hangs out in dungeons, she knows Aaron/Aria is exploring them long before Cammy does, but you never have to ask Yue to keep it a secret because Yue ain't no snitch.
