What is/where can I find the small, sealish looking thing for the Marspin recipe? I have the feeling I’ve seen one at some point but can’t figure where and it’s bugging me.

I’m assuming you mean Narpike. They can be found southeast of Finam, on the shore.

Narpike is southeast of Finam on the shores of the lake there.

Edit: we posted nearly at the same time.
