How to start the quest
If you have not yet opened the dailies system in Sumeru, then the first thing you will need to do is complete the world quest called ” Adventure takes courage! Then select the Dendro Region as the desired quest drop area in the Adventurer's Handbook.
Now you just need to wait for the desired mission to drop – this can happen both the next day and a month later. When this finally happens, move to the teleporter south of Vimara village, and then drop down in a southerly direction. On the road you will find a researcher named Fargani – chat with him. He'll want to know why the sky isn't falling to the ground, and to do that, he needs more data that you can help him gather.
This quest has three options. We will look at each of them, as it directly affects the achievement.
Fargani will note that he found the perfect place to collect information, but various monsters roam near it, so he will ask you to deal with them. A marked area will appear on the map, located on the nearest hill. Head there – there you can encounter one of the following groups of enemies:
- Two Ruin Crushers.
- Two Hilichurls and one Fire Ax Mitachurl.
- Four Molders.
After dealing with the monsters, talk to the explorer again, who will also go up the hill. He will thank you and this will complete the task, and you will receive the standard reward, which includes 10 source stones.
Talk to Fargani again, who will be waiting for you in another place (southeast of the village). You will need to place 3 beacons in certain places. You can put them in any order. The first step is to climb the cliff on the right side – use the four-leaf symbols for this.
After climbing up, place the first beacon right next to the shack next to the desert deserters (you don't have to fight them).
Now go around the hut on the left side and place the second beacon near the wooden platform. Then go to the back of the house and install the last device. Then go downstairs and chat with the scientist to complete the quest.
Beacon Collection Option
Chat with Fargani in the same place as in the previous version of the assignment. He will report that the beacons have received the necessary data, so they can be collected – for this you will need to climb the mountain again (most likely, this version of the daily opens only after completing the previous one).
Climb the rock again using the four-leaf symbols. Upstairs, you can encounter one of the following groups of enemies:
- Cryo and Electro Void Mages.
- Hydro and Pyro Void Mages.
- Two Hilichurls and one fire ax mitachurl.
After dealing with the enemies, collect the devices placed around the hut. Just in case, we have shown their location in the screenshots below. Return to the researcher again and tell him about the monsters. This will complete the quest and give you the standard reward.
How to unlock the “Heaven is High and the Earth…” achievement
To get this trophy, you must you will need to complete all 3 versions of the quest, that is, fight monsters, install beacons, and then collect them. You will end up having to complete this quest at least three times.
However, many Players claim to have been able to unlock this trophy after just completing the quest, with all of them dropping the monster-slaying version near the destination. Most of them report having fought molders. Perhaps this is a bug that allows you to quickly open the achievement.
