If the quest has not been activated, speak to Devola at the Village Tavern and ask her about this quest to begin.

Devola: "Seems like there's a traveler in Seafront who's searching for something. Why don't you see what she wants?"


  • Speak with the woman at the Seafront docks with the orange sash. 

The woman is a jeweler by trade and she is in search of a precious gem known as the Mermaid Tear. It is one of her family's most precious heirlooms. She believes it is located somewhere in Seafront

  • Ask around the resident's of Seafront

A lady seated at a fountain in a purple sash will mention the Lighthouse Lady knew about precious stones.  


  • Search the lighthouse for clues

NieR will find a 50-year-old letter, and a letter that will say ."... I am enclosing the Mermaid Tear with my next letter. It is the only thing I have found in this world that can hope to compare to your beauty."

A second letter says 'My dearest, I fear I cannot send the Mermaid Tear at this time. I hope you can forgive me for this terrible slight."

The second letter appears to be sent from within Seafront. 


  • Speak to the Postman, and investigate the Post Office
