During the Strongholds tutorial, you will receive an explanation from Butler Adeline, after which you will be able to begin the Basics of the Strongholds Economy quest. After completing the quest, you can head over to the Lab button in the top left of your screen and click on the Merchant Contract: Trade Permit. Now hit the Research button. 

This will have you wait a few moments until the research is complete. Once it has done so, click on the completed research to be taken to a cutscene. This cutscene will explain how you enter contracts with trade merchants and the basics of the game's economy.

After the cutscene has been completed, you will now be able to trade with merchants. First, find the merchant located at the port on the map and interact with her. Once you do, you will see the option to trade an item (either Raid Seals or Victory Seals) for the Radiant Zagoras Crystal.

Note: It is possible for this quest to soft-lock, in which case you may find it challenging to acquire the Radiant Zagoras Crystals.

This happens when players don't go to the merchant first and use their items elsewhere, such that they don't have Victory seals to trade. Followingly, players won't have any items to trade for the Radiant Zagoras Crystal, leaving the quest incomplete. 

Fortunately, there is an NPC who will let you trade Raid Seals for more of these crystals, located near the travelling merchant. So if you didn't get them earlier and the merchant is gone or not selling them anymore, you can find one there.

These crystals are the reward for completing the quest and don't seem to have any other purpose in the game just yet. However, we suspect that they will soon be used as trade items like other crystals in the game. So, we encourage you to check back here soon for more information. 

And that's everything you need to know to acquire the Radiant Zagoras Crystals in Lost Ark. If you're interested in more Lost Ark content, please check out our dedicated Lost Ark section here for more guides and news.
