The passage of the quest “The only harmony for an irreplaceable soul”
How to start a task
The task “The Only Harmony for an Irreplaceable Soul” appears in the travel log after the end of the previous starting quest, which we already talked about a few days ago. If you haven't completed the first mission yet or are interested in the requirements to start the Sea Lantern Festival event, we recommend that you read this material first.
Wait for the appointed time (two days later at 08:00 – 10:00)
You may have noticed that in the previous step quest goal tracking does not mark where the quest started. In fact, the quest will begin in two in-game days, which can be “skipped” using the time rewind function from the main Paimon menu. It is acceptable to just wait for the agreed period while doing other activities.
Note: By the way, the full cycle of day and night in Genshin Impact takes 24 real minutes.
Talk with Gan Yu at Yujing Terrace
In the previous part of the story, we stopped at the search for the mysterious maiden from the legend told by Dvorak. It's time to visit Gan Yu, she is just waiting at the gate of the Jade Palace.
Go to Mount Aotsang
Together with Gan Yu we go to the monastery of the Keeper of the Clouds located on Mount Aotsang. The owner of this place and the route there should be familiar to the players from the main plot of the game and the tasks of the legends. The Li Yue west travel point of the same name allows you to glide straight to the mission's continuation location.
Swim to the middle of the pond
Surprisingly, the reclusive Adept has left her abode, so Paimon comes up with the idea to reproduce the events in practice from an ancient legend, into the mystery of the origin of which we are now trying to penetrate. The task is simple: swim across or go around the pond on land, find yourself in the marked area and wait for the performance that the best companion will play.
Follow Shen He to her training area
After a dialogue with Shen He and Xiao, we go down to the place marked on the map, where we observe a touching scene demonstrating how much the Adept’s pupil continues to differ from ordinary residents of Li Yue. At the end of the dialogue, the Guardian of the Clouds catches up with the company, leading the squad on the way to the next point.
Go to the specified location
The Abandoned Ruins travel point is ideal for continuing the journey. You can reach the objective of the quest step from it in a matter of seconds.
Here, the player will have a thorough conversation with the Guardian of the Clouds and an amazing cut-scene that touches on the history of the past and present of some of the characters you know. We will not reveal its essence, but we strongly advise you to leisurely enjoy this masterpiece yourself.
Talk to Madam Ping in Li Yue
Using the transfer point on Mount Tianheng, we descend directly to Madame Ping. She's waiting for us downstairs in the company of the Guardian of the Clouds. Talking to them reveals the secret of the Dvorak legend, and the player, along with Paimon, eagerly share their discoveries with him.
Please note: in some parts of this quest, you can linger after the dialogue and talk to the NPC again, listening to additional lines.
Talk to Dvorak
You can use the nearest teleporter, jump down and run to Dvorak waiting in the port, or you can fly through the air right at his feet, maneuvering between buildings on a glider, as we did. The artist seems to be too excited about the idea of holding a music festival, so he listens to the news rather detachedly.
Go to Wangsheng Ritual Bureau
Remembering how this festival adventure began, the heroes finally decide to visit Zhong Li and give him the ingredients for the soup obtained in the first task of this chain – “A Thousand Miles Following the Mysterious Melody”. The Wangsheng Ritual Bureau, of which Zhong Li is a nominal employee, can be difficult to find, so we advise you to simply follow the sign. On the desktop version of the game, the “V” key is used by default to display the route to the objective of the mission.
Go to Mount Hulao
It turns out that Zhong Li went to visit friends. You can find him on Mount Hulao, located southwest of the Cloud Keeper's retreat. We propose to use the point of movement indicated in the screenshot and fly over the reservoir. When approaching the Adepts, a dialogue will automatically start and Zhong Li will join.
Return to Li Yue
To return to the city, use the teleporter on the terrace near the northern entrance to Li Yue and run to the port, where a cutscene will immediately begin showing the beginning of the sea lantern festival: Dvorak is finally doing what he loves, and the heroes from Li Yue are watching the festival in an atmosphere characteristic of them characters. Some even get involved.
We hope that our guide helped you in completing the quest “The Only Harmony for an Irreplaceable Soul”. The quest turned out to be unusually atmospheric and beautiful, we are waiting for your impressions in the comments!
