The passage of the quest “A thousand miles following the mysterious melody”
How to start a task
Before you can take it on, you will need to fulfill a number of conditions, namely:
- Achieve at least Adventure Rank 28. In a separate article, we gave some tips on how to increase it.
- Complete the Archon quest “The Approach of a New Star”, which is the third chapter of the first volume.
- Complete the Archons quest “The Wind Blows – The Cranes Return” and Ye Lan's Legends quest “The Calculating Gambit” from the Ghost Orchid quest chain (optional).
If all conditions are met, proceed with the quest and You can see the possible rewards from the event menu, which is called by the compass icon at the top of the screen (F5 key for the PC version of the game).
After fulfilling all the conditions or using the quick start option, a new mission of the same name will appear in the list of tasks, you can immediately put it on tracking to display the target marker.
Walk around Li Yue Port
To start the task, we follow the point marked with a marker and meet with Zhong Li in the harbor of Li Yue.
Funeral home consultant Wang Sheng will remind you of the upcoming sea lantern festival, and Paimon will be seduced by the ingredient he mentioned for a delicious new dish. This is how this little adventure begins.
Gather young bamboo shoots
Move to the southern teleport of Qingze Village – according to Zhong Li, this is where the most exquisite young bamboo shoots grow – and collect three pieces in grove east of the move point. Immediately after that, a cry for help will be heard…
Go to the place where the call for help came from
We move on to the marked area on the bridge on the mini-map. A miniature girl runs towards us. When approaching it, a cutscene starts, in which we meet Yao Yao and an unlucky wandering musician from Fontaine named Dvořák. He tells an unusual story, and the whole company decides to go to Gan Yu for advice.
Head to Li Yue Harbor
Use the nearest travel point to the quest marker at the north entrance of Li Yue and head straight for the gate.
Show Dvorak the harbor of Li Yue
We start a walk with our new acquaintance through the streets of the city. The first point of interest on the square is right in front of us, just run forward along the bridge. Here Dvořák meets a fellow musician he already knows, Xin Yan. During the conversation, everyone together decides to help the artist from Fontaine organize a small show in honor of the sea lantern festival.
< h3>Go to Yujing Terrace
Yujing Terrace is located in the upper part of the city and can be reached either by climbing the walls or by following the quest navigator – for example, in the PC version of the game, you can press the “V” key to show the closest path to the location of the target of the tracked quest. Having reached the place, we listen to the conversation of our company with Madame Pin.
Look for Gan Yu at Yujing Terrace
Continue along the terrace to the very end and, past the gate, climbing the steps of the jade palace.
The Moonsea Pavilion Chief Secretary will support Dvořák's initiative with some reservations, but it needs time to discuss.
Wait to meet at the same place in 2 hours
Using the dial icon in the main menu, we skip 2 hours and thus wait for the return of Gan Yu in the company of Ke Qing. While preparations are underway for the city festivities, the player will have the opportunity to help Dvorak in his personal search, for which he, among other things, visited Li Yue.
Go to the performance site
We descend to the port of Li Yue, either following the tracking line indicating the way, or we jump off and fly straight. Here Bai Wen catches up with us and asks us to investigate a mysterious incident on the coast.
Go to the place, oh which Bai Wen spoke
The place of interest to us is located near the statue of the Archon in the Cloudy Sea. After the teleportation, we immediately run to the west, where a view of a suspicious hut opens up on a ledge marked with a marker – Ye Lan meets the heroes there.
Look for clues
To assess the situation, you need to examine the door, the window and the pile of boxes. The screenshot below shows their location. Once this is done, there will be a small dialogue with Ye Lan. The girl will share her findings and the investigation will continue.
Follow Ye Lan and go to the Treasure Thieves' camp
Now just escort Ye Lan while the detective follows the trail. She does not go far ahead and it will be difficult to lose her. After finding the camp of treasure thieves, we simply move to the other side of the gorge.
Defeat the Treasure Thieves
Talking to the treasure thief starts a fight where the player can only use Ye Lan. Simple shots and her elemental skill will leave no chance for the enemy.
Defeat loosens his tongue, and he reveals all the cards. Satisfied, Ye Lan prefers to remain in the shadows and simply takes the enemy with her, giving him a few merciful hints.
Return to Bai Wen at Yujing Terrace
It will be convenient to return to the city through the teleport on the mountain Tianheng, from where you can glide straight to Bei Wen waiting at the gate of the jade palace.
Ning Guang will also come out to discuss preparations for the annual sea lantern festival. After the conversation ends, the quest ends successfully. The player is invited to expect new activities within the event or try out those already open.
