|Quest:||Seat of the Heart|
|Description:||"Elly has a personal request."|
To unlock this 1 player quest on Blue Burst, you must complete the following prerequisites on the same difficulty mode (Normal, Hard, Very Hard, Ultimate) that you plan to play Seat of the Heart on.
1. Complete up to Government Quest 8-1. That means taht you need to beat 7-5.
2. Make an online Episode 2 game and load the quest from under the VR section.Gamecube/XBox:
The Seat of the Heart can be found under the VR quest section at the Hunters Guild (Episode 1 or 2 game rooms). But before you can select this quest from the VR section, you must first complete a set of offline prerequisites.
Keep in mind that you must complete the following prerequisites on the same difficulty mode (Normal, Hard, Very Hard, Ultimate) that you plan to play Seat of the Heart on.
Offline prerequisites for this quest include the following:
1. Successfully complete VR Temple (Alpha & Beta) on Episode 2.
Do your best to protect the NPC and don't let them die.You have to keep them alive. If they die the quest will end. Some enemies have the ability to kill the NPC in one hit. Do not rely on the NPC's to help you.
Dying without a scape will also end the quest. There are many enviromental traps new and exclusive to this new quest. There are pillars or lights, fiery of explosions, luminous trails and different forms of lightning (one shocks, and one freezes). This all adds to the difficulty of the quest.
This quest is broken up into two halves. After you journey through Spaceship, you will have to defeat Gol Dragon. You will complete the first half of the quest at this point and be able to save.
This is a difficult quest, it is recommended that you are able to easily defeat the EP2 CCA level and beat the CCA area boss offline alone. Once you can easily do that, you are safe to attempt the online quest at the same difficulty level. Note that enemies are tougher online than they are offline. The NPC's that you will have to fight are also very difficult, especially on Ult mode.
You can get Elly or Kireek to join you in the fight. If you told Sue your name
in the Dr Osto's Reseach quest offline, completed the Sue
route/subplot and you have beaten Knowing One's Heart, you will have Kireek
joining your team.
If you follow a preset number of steps while playing the offline Hunters Guild quests, you can acquire a rare shield called the Ragol Ring during Seat of the Heart. Follow the below steps to acquire the ring.
1. Successfully complete VR Temple - CCA (including defeating the Gal Gryphon).
2. Complete the following Hunters Guild quests offline on the same difficulty you plan to play Seat of the Heart on:
Note: The following events for each quest can only be completed the first time the quest is played. You cannot go back to a quest after previously completing it and activate the Sue/Bernie Subplot conversations. You must initiate the Sue/Bernie Subplot conversations the FIRST time you play the quest or you won't be able to get the Ragol Ring.
The Quests below require no steps aside from simply completing them. They do not have any required Sue/Bernie conversations to engage in.
The Quests below require that you talk with either Sue, Bernie, or both. Make sure to speak with them several times after they finish their initial conversation to make sure they have nothing left to say. You must make sure to do this or you may loose out on acquiring the Ragol Ring.
Dr. Osto's Research
Waterfall of Tears
3. Play Seat of the Heart on the same difficulty mode that you completed the Sue/Bernie Subplot.
4. Various times during the quest, you will need to answer a series of questions correctly in order to move on. The answers to the questions are as follows:
5. Sure and Kireek will appear after you release the lock to the gate leading
to the Control Tower only if you completed the Sue/Bernie Subplot correctly. After
the brief conversation between the four, you and Kireek will be free to enter
the Control Tower.
6. Destroy only the correct computers/switches and complete the Control Tower.
( It's not necessary to defeat Epsilon). Refer to the maps below.
7. The end of the mission takes place in the Seaside area. Once you regain
consciousness, travel down the beach till you find Elly. Once you get close enough
to her location, an automatic conversation will start up between her and you.
If you followed the above steps correctly, she'll reward you with the Ragol Ring.
To do damage to Epsilon, wait for the 4 shields/parts to move away from the center core. Then inflict damage to the center core. Trying to hurt him while the shields are not away from the core will not damage him.
