Location: Oculus Tower, The Shears -> Up -> Right -> 2 Up Right -> Into the building -> Left -> Up, Search for Refugees, Desolation Ruins, Shear Destruction
Crest: Not anymore, thanks to the two of you.
- What happened?
Crest: They planned to use me... my magic for the Oculus construct.
Crest: It didn't go as they planned, I was overloaded with power.
Crest: I could feel myself losing control, sensing the magic surrounding me but I was helpless to respond.
Crest: I fear for what may have resulted had you and Leon not been there to save me.
- Why you, Crest?
Crest: I have a lot of untapped power inside me. Leon discovered this during our time in Swordhaven, but the Rose also found out.
Crest: He would teach me how to focus my magic, even after we left due to his exile.
Crest: I've learnt much during our travels but there is always more to be found. Magic seems so boundless, so open.
Crest: It's a beautiful thought, but not everyone sees it that way.
Crest: Because of me.
Crest: He always doubted the Rose, but when they tried to capture me...
Crest: He intervened, felling all who came after me. Not even the King's guard could get past him.
Crest: Exile was the only solution that would not lead to further harm upon them.
Crest: Sometimes he misses the Kingdom, but so much has changed... It is not the same home we cherished.
- Oculus Shard
Crest: We can't allow more mages to be harmed by this technology. They need to be destroyed.
Crest: Although...If we can recover a working Oculus it could prove useful in saving mages from the Rose.
Search for Refugees
Crest: Lets go find some mages to save!
Crest: And who would lead them?
Crest: Then find your strength, you need to show them that the Rose CAN be defeated. There must be a way.
Crest: Aye, our scouts have shown that they have been reoccupying the tower since our last encounter.
Crest: Aye, our scouts have found that the Rose has begun reoccupying the tower since our last encounter.
Crest: From the looks of it, they are trying to get it operational again, but with a more... stable... mana source.
