Earnest's Solitude is a quest in Xenoblade Chronicles. It can be received from Earnest in the Refugee Camp on Bionis' Leg. It is the third and final quest in a series of three quests given by Earnest, and involves placing flowers on the grave of Earnest's friend by Kasharpa Falls. If Sharla is in the active party, she will comment.

"The darkness in Earnest is gone. No more dishonest antics from him!"

Sharla: "I do. I can see it in your eyes. I can't be a hundred percent sure. But it feels like you're telling the truth this time."
Earnest: "Really? Ya believe me? Hmm... What's this? I'm feeling a bit guilty."
Sharla: "Don't be like that. I'm sure you had reasons for lying when you did. But I believe what you're saying now."
