Enter the arena to fight the final round
Head into the center of the arena to get a scene with Beidou, she’ll introduce the finalists to the crowd, but when she gets to your opponent, he’s nowhere to be found. Beidou will say that the match has to be postponed if he doesn’t get here soon. Kazuha feels something is awry, and suggests checking on the prize.
Go check the box containing the Vision
Go to Zhuhan, and check the box on the table, and it appears it’s been stolen. Kazuha tells you that there’s no need to worry, “even the craftiest sleight of hand does not escape nature’s watchful gaze” he says. Apparently, the theft has only just happened, and the thief is nearby, he’ll then ask you to come with him.
Follow Kazuha to track down the Vision
Heal up if needed, and head over to Zhuhan to start the next round, the semi-finals!
Go to the wind current location
Head over to the wind current, which can be found at the north of the island and jump into it, this’ll start the challenge “Ride the wind to proceed onward”. Follow the wind accelerators on to the small island.
Proceed to the small island ahead and search for clues
When you land, follow the path to the west, on your way, you’ll face a Fatui Pyro Agent, these have a few moves you need to be wary off:
Invisibility: He can go completely invisible for several seconds, making it, so he can’t be attacked by ranged attacks or any other skills which require a target. Using Elemental Skills which provide an elemental status to him will put a blue outline around his silhouette.
Spinning Knife Guard: This skill will make three blades rotate around him, dealing Pyro damage to anyone it touches, standing away from him when he does this to avoid being hit.
Charge attack: Whilst invisible, he will dash towards and slash at you for major damage, stay on the move and dodge to avoid this or take him out of his invisibility.
Confirm the clues with Kazuha
Continue west until you get to the beach, interact with the golden glow to activate another wind current.
Continue the pursuit
Once again, jump on the wind current for another challenge, follow the wind accelerators to the next island.
Defeat the Treasure Hoarders blocking the way
When you land, head around the corner of the mountain, and you’ll have a battle against one Treasure Hoarder Scout, one Treasure Hoarder Marksman, and one Treasure Hoarder Cryo Potioneer, these aren’t that tough, but focus on the Potioneer as they can be quite frustrating, knocking you down if their potions hit you.
Talk to the Treasure Hoarder who stole the Vision
With the Treasure Hoarders defeated, you’ll find your thief waiting by a pool of water, as you get closer to him, you’ll get a scene. He’ll ask how you kept up with him, he even had a boat prepared in advance, Kazuha explains that no boat could match the speed of the wind, and that although he’s skilled at concealing himself from a crowd, he knows little about hiding himself from nature’s gaze. Furthermore, Kazuha notices that the Vision wouldn’t work on the thief.
Paimon realizes that this thief was meant to be your opponent in the final, the thief explains he was trying to win the tournament legitimately but when he saw you in the tournament, he knew he had no chance, so he decided to steal the prize instead. After you tell him to hand over the Vision, Kazuha tells the thief what becomes of thieves according to the laws of the sea. This results in a battle with you.
Defeat the Treasure Hoarder
Fei fights similar to Raptor, a Treasure Hoarder you fought in Act I: Outrider Style, he fights similar to a marksman, and can jump away when you get close, if he goes uninterrupted, he’ll fire bolts of Pyro at you. The strategy of this battle is to close the distance, and keep attacking him with melee attacks, and he’ll go down in no time. After the fight ends, it appears Kazuha has no intention of punishing him, and was using it as a test to see if he would get the Vision. Paimon will ask him about what’s the deal with the Vision and Kazuha will explain it to you.
Return to the Guyun Stone Forest arena
After the scene ends, teleport back to the Guyun Forest waypoint, and head to the arena. When you get there, it appears Beidou is nowhere to be found, and Zhuhan will explain that she was summoned by Ningguang. Kazuha will tell Zhuhan what transpired and declare you the champion, he’ll then go on to tell you that Beidou will keep her word, but it’ll take some time for the Alcor to get fitted for the journey, and you’ll be told when it’s ready. This’ll end the prologue for now.
