This quest which can be picked up at level 75 starts with General Dilios, who is standing on a side platform of the Keucereus Alliance Base.
Dilios is one of the most famous among the great generals at the base of the Keucereus Alliance. If you want to join the war of conquest he is waging against the Seed of Destruction and the Seed of Infinity, you must prove to him your strength and determination. The first step in doing this is to demonstrate your ability to fly. For this purpose go talk to Engineer Lekon and obtain from him a certificate that confirms your flying skills.
You will find Engineer Lekon near the fountain in the central part of the base. Tell him "I want to fly" (the middle link).
When you have completed the quest, Lekon will issue you a certificate.
Return with Lekon's Certificate to General Dilios. After the General has assured himself of the authenticity of the document, he will tell you to go see Local Products Manager Cochran and listen to the further information he has for you.
Cochran is standing just on the other side of the fountain from Lekon.
The Local Products Manager will give you detailed information about the special items that can be found in the Seed strongholds: Imperfect Soulstones in the Seed of Infinity and Dragon Rider's Totems in the Seed of Destruction. (about the seeds read more at the guides section).
For every 5 Imperfect Soulstones you bring him he will give you 1 Purified Soulstone, for every 5 Dragon Rider's Totems you get 1 Dragon Rider's Talisman. Read carefully what Cochran says so that you can better make plans what items to collect next.
Basically your mission is to destroy any monsters you can find in the Seed strongholds and collect their Totems and the Soulstones they carry. Hunting soldiers of the Dragon Horse Army in the Seed of Destruction, it took 1 hour 30 minutes to acquire 7 Totems. The way to an Icarus weapon is a long one and at times it can make you despair.
When the time you can spend in the instanced dungeons of the Seed strongholds is up, return to Cochran at the base of the Keucereus Alliance. He will exchange 5 Totems agaist a Dragon Rider's Talisman or 5 Imperfect Soulstones against a Purified one.
With those Talismans and Purified Soulstones you can then buy recipes and parts for all nine Icarus weapons as well as lvl II Soul of Dynasty, which is needed to make the better variety of class-specific S80 armor, and lvl 81 Spellbooks.In the screenshot one recipe for a pair of Icarus Hand fist weapons requires 400 Soulstones and 2000 Talismans (10,000 Totems!)
