Find Clues to Locate the Avian Artifact is a quest which Esther gives after the Grand Pagoda Library has been completed and Koichi has returned to the Ark.
For this quest players need to scan a number of Avian themed objects which can be found in dungeons or villages. Avian settlements are most likely to be found on jungle planets.
Only specific objects provide progress points toward quest completion when scanned. To complete the quest players must earn 50 inspection points. There are a number of key objects, which award 20 points each, these will trigger a radio message from Esther. Each settlement or village should have at least one key object placed somewhere within it. Additionally, speaking with any Avian has a small chance of awarding you with 4 points. Completing this quest may require players visit a number of different planets.
After earning 50 points Esther will summon the player to return to turn in. Completing this quest is a prerequisite to unlock the Avian mission.
The key objects for this quest are as follows. When each is scanned Esther will report about it with a radio message.
Each of these objects counts for 20 points toward the 50 required for quest completion, and each can only be scanned for credit once.
A variety of other Avian themed objects can be scanned for smaller amounts of points toward quest completion.
