Find Clues to Locate the Hylotl Artifact is a quest which Esther gives after Ceremonial Hunting Caverns have been completed and Nuru has returned to the Ark.

For this quest players need to scan a number of Hylotl themed objects which can be found in dungeons or villages. Hylotl settlements are most likely to be found underwater on ocean planets as these planets contain only Hylotl dungeons & villages.

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 Grand Pagoda Library mission.

Quest Text

"We should start work on finding the Hylotl artifact now. Search around temperate stars, and hunt for clues on planets with vast tracts of ocean, where the Hylotl reside both above and below the waves. Come back here when your search is complete; and look after yourself."

Completion Text

"That was the last clue we needed to find the Hylotl artifact. Wonderful work, 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 image is hand made and obviously depicts a building of cultural importance..."
20 "The Hylotl protect and preserve knowledge like the most precious treasure... Books are their most precious commodity, could their artifact be stored amongst a repository of tomes?."
20 "This Library is modelled in exquisite detail - a palace of knowledge! Perhaps their artifact is housed in a place such as this."
20 "This aquarium has a model island on top of it! How curious."
20 "This music box plays an ancient tune... It's a commemorative object, I will research what its origins are."

Other Objects

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