How to start the quest
If you have fulfilled all the conditions in advance to take part in the event – and we described them in the event guide – the quest will automatically appear in your quest log. If some optional conditions have not been met, you can start the quest using the “Quick Start” function.
Go to Mondstadt
Go towards the city gates of Mondstadt. Here you will meet Eichendorff and Lennard discussing their losses in some card competitions.
You can find Diona near the entrance to the Cat's Tail Tavern. This is also where you will see Kirara, a Neko Courier from Inazuma, for the first time. The only thing Diona knows about the card tournament is that it was organized by the Adventurer's Guild, and she will send you to the tavern owner for other information.
< h3>Ask Margarita
A woman is standing by the fountain, next to the alchemy workbench and the Good Hunter restaurant.
As it turns out, the tournament is called “Sacred Summon King's Grand Prix” and you're already too late to apply. However, you still have the opportunity to take part in unofficial duels.
After the conversation, Charlotte, a Steam Bird journalist from Fontaine, will approach you. She will tell you that she saw the Card Thief stealing the opponent's cards. However, now she is busy with other things: she needs to give the award to the author of their magazine column.
The correspondent will lead you to Mona's house. It turns out that she writes articles for the “Conversations about Astrology” column.
< h3>Go to the venue
The final venue is a little southeast of the Ordo Favonius headquarters.
On the way, Charlotte will notice two suspicious individuals and will fall behind you. At this time, you will meet Keia, the finalist of the tournament, who will have a fight with Timmy.
Talk to Charlotte
The girl is standing at the stairs and eavesdrops on a suspicious conversation. Soon one of the unknowns runs away.
< h3>Follow the suspicious person
The man runs towards the side gate of Mondstadt.
Turn left when you exit the city.
Defeat the Treasure Thieves who attacked the Unknown. He will introduce himself as Adrian and tell that a certain collector bought cheap card shirts from him for a triple price, after which he was going to go to Li Yue.
< h3>Return to the venue
Speak to Kaya, who lost to Timmy in the final.
Charlotte is going to Li Yue to continue her investigation, but first, the cavalry captain will suggest that you look around and walk around kiosks. This completes the quest.
For this quest, you will receive 40 Primogems, 100 Summon Coupons, 20,000 Mora, and 2 Hero Experience Books. In addition, you will unlock access to various event challenges.
