The Guide to Complete ‘Where The Light Wanes’ Quest
When you start this Lantern Rite Tale, you have to go to the central staircase which is located in Liyue Harbor. In this location, the thing that you have to do is to meet an NPC named Hongyu. You can find him standing about halfway up the stairs on duty. When you meet Hongyu, you have to speak to him to learn that he is now suffering from a headache. This headache involves discovering some trashed Xiao Lanterns in the city. So, your task here is to find those three Xiao Lenterns.
Finding Xiao Lantern 1
If you have spoken to Hongyu, then you will see a marker which appears on your map at Mt. Tianheng. You have to make your way there. There are two ways to go there. If you want to arrive there quickly, you can use the teleport waypoint nearby. If you are a new player, it may not be activated yet which means that you cannot use it. If so, you can take an alternative way by taking the southern path which leads out of Liyue Harbor and then climb the stairs and ladders which can be found in between the 2 large statues. Then, when you arrive in the location, there will be a lantern in a tree. You have to climb the tree to the lantern and collect it.
Finding Xiao Lantern 2
Next, you have to find the second Xiao lantern. Where is it? You are able to find it directly west of the first broken lantern’ s location. So, it is still in the same region. To reach the second location of the Xiao lantern, you can glide over there from the first lantern’s location. This thing can be done if you do not have the teleport waypoint nearby. The waypoint is on top of the hill to the right of a dungeon called ‘Domain of the Wayward Path’. After you arrive at the top of this hill, then you can glide across to the hill on the other side of the ravine. In the location, there will be some Hilichurl monsters, so you have to beat the enemies and collect the second Xiao lantern.
Finding Xiao Lantern 3
How about the third Xiao lantern? You are able to find it in the Jueyun Karts area. This is an area north of the second lantern. The distance of this area is far, so you can use a waypoint to save a lot of time. If you have never visited this area yet, you may be able to find it quicker to warp to the Wangshu Inn and go east. It is because the location is closer. You can find the lantern on the east side of the two bridges and it can be viewed on the map. In this location, there will also be enemies that you have to defeat. After defeating the enemies, then you must speak to Flash-Fist Ling and then get the broken lanter.
Going Back to Hongyu
If you have collected the three Xiao lanterns, then you have to go back to Hongyu. You have to go to Liyue Harbor and then meet him to tell that you have collected the Xiao lanterns. Then, you will complete the mission and you will receive Primogems, Festive Fever and Mora.
