In Honkai: Star Rail The Whirlwind of Stars, the Epiphany Comes is a exploration mission and part of the Sky Journey chain on a star raft” in which you will have to hunt down Kafka using Deetina, and then catch up and defeat her. If you have any difficulties completing the tasks, then study our guide.
The passage of the quest “Whirlpool of stars, insight is coming”
How to start the task
It starts automatically immediately after completing the previous quest in the line called “The Hound Chasing the Fox”, so no additional action is required.
How to find clues related to Kafka
Three yellow areas will appear on your map, in which you will need to look for clues indicating the location of Kafka. Move to the first area and activate the dog sensing system. You will find a weapon shard on the ground near the building to the right.
Move to the next area, clearing the monsters along the way. After descending, approach the vase and inspect it for an unexploded grenade.
Go forward to the third zone after eliminating another group of enemies. Near the platform and another vase you can find the third clue – a jade tag.
Once you've found all the clues, you'll now be able to track down Kafka. To do this, approach the quest marker ahead and take the elevator down.
How to track down Kafka with Deetin
After descending, move to the next search area. You can fight the monsters or just bypass them. When you get to the right area, deal with two groups of enemies so that they do not interfere with you.
Next, activate the dog skill and you will see a purple trail. A new search area will appear on the map – move there. Cross the bridge and go down. A new cut-scene will begin, in which you will discover Kafka.
Then the battle with the level 45 cloud knights will begin. Their vulnerabilities are shown in the picture below. They don't have much health, so you'll have to defeat them quickly.
How to catch up with Kafka and get to the other side of the gate
Having dealt with the enemies, run forward, following the sign. Deal with a group of enemies at the bottom, and then climb the stairs to the top. Kafka will close doors right in front of you.
Interact with the controller to the right of the door, then select the “move right” option to create a bridge for yourself leading to the other half of the room.
When you reach the other side, press the second console and select the “shift right” option to open a new path below. Before you go down, you can open the regular chest upstairs. Go to the quest marker and deal with the enemies on the upper platform.
You will again need to catch up with the criminal. Move forward and then turn left and go up the stairs.
How to find another way to pursue Kafka
Go forward and deal with the enemies patrolling here. Then interact with the controller and click on the “move left” option, clearing your way to the right.
Go ahead and go up the stairs on the right. Before this, be sure to activate the spatial anchor and heal. We also advise you to set up a squad, as soon you will have to fight Kafka.
How to defeat Kafka
First of all, we note that this level 45 boss is vulnerable to physical and wind damage, so we advise you to even take Dan Heng to a paid team. In general, the following budget unit can deal with this enemy: Pathfinder (physical), Dan Heng, March 7 and Natasha.
Kafka has an extremely dangerous skill that allows her to confuse your characters, causing them to attack not enemies, but their allies. For this reason, you need to take as many heroes as possible that can quickly break her tenacity, preventing her from using this skill. You can also remove the debuff with Natasha's or Bailu's abilities.
First, we advise you to deal with ordinary mobs that came along with Kafka in order to reduce the damage received. After that, you can focus all your attacks on the boss. You should also add at least one shield and/or healer to your squad to increase the team's survivability.
After dealing with the enemies, watch a long cutscene that introduces you to High Seer Fu Xuan.
Go to the square and find the envoy
When the dialogue ends, go forward to the quest marker. Then move to the square and stand right in the center of the marked area. Monsters will suddenly appear and Baylu will try to stop them. Mara will start fighting level 44 soldiers.
After dealing with the enemies, talk to Bailu. Next, you will need to find Fu Xuan's envoy. To do this, talk to 2 men: Guanda and Sunyan. After that, Dahao will speak to you. Chat with him and this will complete the task.
You will be rewarded with 800 exploration experience, 3 purified ethers, a new music track, and 3 traveler's guides. Plus, access to the side quest “Cloud crossing” and the next task in the chain “Poison boils, promises immortality” will open.
