​QUEST NAME: Tip of the Spear
QUEST GIVER: Jessica
DATE: 6/10 – Saturday

GUIDE:

This one is actually really easy despite the fact that your having to use Jessica on a one-on-one against Rean. The most simple and easiest method to win this is to use Earth Pulse to keep yourself healed, Piercing Blitz (this should lower Rean’s defence), then after that just keep spamming him with Cold Nail (this should freeze Rean and make him miss a turn). If you keep doing this and all in this order you should be fine!

Thus inspect and talk to all of the little green marks on the map in order to collect the necessary fees, now once you have finished speaking to the final one, another boat will appear and its obvious that this boat is rather big.
Up on talking to this owner you will realise something is wrong as he is only paying for a semi-big boat whilst his boat should be classed as big instead. Now in order to get the maximum amount of rewards for this you will need to speak to the nearby Sailors BEFORE reporting back to Eston

The shell can be found on the Auros Coastal Road on the actual beach, now once you have picked up the shell here you can report back to the client HOWEVER, in order to get the maximum amount of rewards you will need to continue searching for even more shells. If you look around after collecting the first shell you should now see yet more shiny objects, thus go around and pick all of these objects up until you see a scene where Ash finds a shell. Once Ash finds his shell you can then report back and end the quest

After inspecting the Theatre you could report back to Gaspar HOWEVER, in order to get the maximum amount of rewards for this one you will want to instead report back to McEnroe’s Pawn Shop.

As you are now free to explore West Languedoc Canyon Road, I suggest you do so. You will find the missing brother marked with a red marker on the map.
