Before completing the quest:
Sir Leon: If you wish to assist in my quest... I will not turn down your help.
Sir Leon: Come, <Character>, let's go discuss what needs to be done.
After completing the quest:
Sir Leon: If you wish to assist in telling Crest of our quest to rescue her... I will not refuse your help.
*Leon, the character and a Pactogonal knight are standing in a back room of the inn. Leon starts talking*
Leon: Listen <Character>, you may have seen the tower looming over the horizon. The Rose have been constructing it ever since Alteon sided with them.
Leon: The tower was heavily guarded, but lately I've scouted less and less soldiers, despite it being near completion.
<Character>: What does it do?
*Leon looks at a diagram of the building*
Leon: According to these plans I acquired before leaving Swordhaven, atop the tower lies an Oculus.
Leon: This device is meant to focus a source of magical energy and use it to locate magical creatures and artifacts so they can be captured.
<Character>: Then we must destroy it!
Leon: It may not be simple, but yes. We must... interrupt the source of the focus, then find a way to disable it.
Leon: The guards that remain seem preoccupied, so now is our best time to strike.
Knight: Leon, what about Cr..
Leon: I'll deal with that.
Leon: <Character>, just make sure to take out the guards.
<Character>: Got it!
Leon: Then we're ready. Let's go.
Get inside the tower then fight your way to the top.
*In one of the tower's corridors, Leon and the character bump into two terrified Rose Soldiers who are running towards the exit*
Rose Soldier: The Oculus, it's overloading!!!
Rose Soldier: Run!!!
*The whole building trembles. The corridor ends a few steps ahead of the heroes, and turns into an outlandish blue magical landscape*
Leon: We must get to the top <Character>! I HAVE TO SAVE HER BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!
Keep fighting your way to the top. This time your enemies are not Rose soldiers, but Mana Elementals.
*Once you reach the top, you find a hovering girl who looks like the landscape surrounding her - blue, golden and dotted with stars*
Leon: CREST!! What have they done to you!
*Crest looks at the two, raises her hand and speaks*
ManaCrest: I sense Magic.
Fight ManaCrest and two of her Mana Elementals, either in normal mode or in extreme mode.
*Once defeated, Crest returns to her normal self*
Leon: You're safe now Crest.
<Character>: They were using you? Focusing your energy?
Crest: Not anymore, thanks to the two of you.
Leon: She can explain things later, but we need to leave.
Loot Shop - opens the Mana Weapons DC shop.
Completion of this quest will also unlock the quests A New Discovery and Gorillaphant Warfare, however, chronologically, it is recommended to complete the quests Oculus Shards through Tournament of Champions Part 2 before continuing with The Shears' story.
