Find Clues to Locate the Glitch Artifact is a quest which Esther gives after the Miniknog Stronghold has been completed and Lana has returned to the Ark.

For this quest players need to scan a number of Glitch themed objects which can be found in dungeons or villages. Glitch settlements are most likely to be found on volcanic 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. 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 Glitch mission.

Quest Text

"Now we need to find the Glitch artifact. Glitch tend to reside on planets with a lot of volcanic activity (they seem to find them vaguely comforting). Volcanic planets occur around fiery stars. Best to search there for clues. I know the Glitch are a little offbeat, but don't underestimate them: look after yourself dear."

Completion Text

"That last clue has confirmed the location of the Glitch artifact! Excellent. Congratulations dear."

Key Objects

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.

Object Pts Radio Message
20 "This statuette... I've seen this individual before! Was it in a book somewhere? I'll investigate..."
20 "This chess table is curious - the pieces are all hand-carved, made by a skilled individual. The design is somewhat idiosyncratic. I wonder what its provenance is."
20 "The text you just scanned mentions a treasure repository - a keep that stores a cache of valuable items. Could it hold something of as much worth as the artifact?"
20 "Heraldry is important among the Glitch. The sigil on this banner is unique, and I believe it may indirectly relate to the artifact. I will research its origins."
20 "The letter on this desk mentions a figure of great notoriety amongst the Glitch. Amongst other things, he is a proprietor of many riches..."

Other Objects

A variety of other Glitch themed objects can be scanned for smaller amounts of points toward quest completion.
