What responsibility would that be?
- I'm supposed to assist with the resonance crystal ritual, but...
- I have doubts. I look around, and I see so much confidence, so much strength in the face of this calamity—and here I am, afraid of failing. Afraid I'm not good enough. There's so much riding on this.

- You're amazing. Truly inspiring. Please, continue!
- After completing the challenge
- Thanks for the encouragement, Commander. This is important...and I can't give up. Not now. I'll head back to the docks in a bit. Now if I can just remember where I put that practice crystal...
- Good luck.
- Only one song is necessary to complete the challenge.
- You aren't required to learn the songs beforehand — it's possible to figure out the entire song through trial and error — but if you wish you can learn them from the Zephyrite Harmonizers related to the Rally the Pact soldiers, corsairs, and Zephyrites renown heart.
