How to complete the A Thousand Miles for an Enigmatic Tune Lantern Rite quest

Take a walk around Liyue Harbor

Upon starting the quest, head to Liyue Harbor through the eastern Teleport Waypoint. Walk a few steps forward to meet up with Zhongli. After a conversation with him, you will be prompted to collect Nascent Bamboo Shoots.

Obtain the “Nascent Bamboo Shoots” (3/3)

Follow the quest marker to the southeast of Qingce Village. Collect three Nascent Bamboo Shoots. The area is filled with both normal and Nascent Bamboo Shoots, so make sure to get the right ones! When you are done, a voice calling for help will resound around the area.

Go to the one calling for help

Head to the highlighted area in the mini-map, toward the stone bridge on top of a waterfall. Meet up with the frantic Yaoyao midway. You will engage in a dialogue with her and a musician from Fontaine named Dvorak.

Show Dvorak around Liyue Harbor

You will be prompted to return to Liyue Harbor. You must enter from the road leading to the northern wharf, where the main entrance to the city lies. Once there, you need to show Dvorak around the city. Simply cross the bridge until you reach the glowing spot, but go a little slowly to make sure that Dvorak is still following you.

Head to Yujing Terrace

After the conversation with Xinyan, follow the quest marker to the Yujing Terrace—the northwestern part of the Harbor. You will meet up with Madame Ping, and then go a little south to meet up with Ganyu.

Stay put and wait for two hours & head to the performance venue

Open the Paimon menu and click on the Time icon on the bottom left. Fast-forward by two hours or more to proceed with the quest. Once that’s done, you will engage in dialogue with the NPCs again, and you will be asked to head to the performance venue. It is located at the eastern wharf. Approach the glowing spot to proceed.

Go to the place Baiwen mentioned & investigate clues (3/3)

Follow the quest marker to the southeast of Luhua Pool, where you will encounter Yelan, who is investigating the same case as you. She will ask you to look for clues. Interact with the three objects with an arrow pointing at them: the crate and two windows on the house to the left. Talk to Yelan after to report your findings.

Follow Yelan & Defeat the Treasure Hoarders

Next, you need to follow Yelan around. Don’t go too far away or the quest might bug out. If you are having issues with this segment, consider relogging to reset the segment and try again. She will stop twice to investigate the trails on the ground. Once she has found the Treasure Hoarder’s camp, you will engage in battle against one of them using a trial Yelan.

Head to Yujing Terrace to report back to Baiwen

Head to the south of Liyue Harbor to speak with Baiwen and report your findings. Ningguang will also make an appearance for a short greeting. Once that’s done, the quest will be complete, and you can begin participating in the Lantern Rite festivities.
