Talk to Bernie again by choosing the Encounter option. He'll tell you a riddle and you must decipher it to prove your worth: “With the purest of heart, ascend to the top of the dragon.” So, where could a dragon be in planet Noah?

Luckily, it's not a live, fire-breathing dragon. Travel to the Hunter Base – just a little south of Bernie's location – and inspect the top of the huts. You'll see a big dragon skull, that is your objective. Climb on top of it using the grapple hook or jetpack and a new icon will appear, click it. After some quick praying, Bernie appears right in front of you, talk to him. This ends the Secret Art of Exploration Encounter.

Completed: Each new generation excels the last one. Bernie's treasure hunting era is over, but you may continue exploring the continent with his encouragement.

Chest Clue (require Lv. 2 and above lightsaber): Mountain top behind the Iron Throne of Lapholme Icefield.

Analysis: Talk with the former treasure hunter.
