Quest mode is the main story scenario of the game. It follows the adventures of Sara, Lippy, and the Savior (player) as they travel the land in search of Seeds of Ruin to prevent them from wreaking havoc among the land of Liafyse. The Savior actually meets Sara and Lippy as an amnesiac with no recollection of his/her past besides his/her name. The Savior agrees to use his/her unique stonecanting ability to fight with Sara and Lippy for good and search for Caesar, Sara's older brother, who appears to have been heavily influenced by a Seed of Ruin.
Quest scenarios are divided into Chapters (listed below) containing various Areas which have a number of stages to complete. You must complete each section in order to continue on to the next. A hero stone is obtained for every first clear of a stage, and another stone, is given when an area is completed. Some areas also give bonus rewards such as Hero Units, Guardian Tickets, Masterwork Weapons, and various Keys.
Note that a Blacksmith Rezo in any element can appear in any stage to drop a Masterwork Weapon. Similarly, a Special Lesser Pan may appear (neutral element) and drop Lavender, Sage, or Rosemary. He will be replaced by a Mimic in Part 5 and onward. Guardian Summon Tickets may also drop in various quantities regardless of what enemies are fought. The chances of these events increase with quest difficulty level, and the special enemies can appear in place of any enemy wave except a boss.
