You have temporarily lost Nahida’s help, but according to the message she left behind, you will meet someone in the desert who can help you get out of the woods. To foil the nefarious plot between the Akademiya and the Fatui, you set off on another journey.


  1. Head to Caravan Ribat.
  2. Go with Alhaitham.
  3. Speak with Alhaitham.
  4. Head to Aaru Village.
  5. Leave the village chief’s house.
  6. Beat the Rifthounds.
  7. Speak with Cyno.
  8. Speak with Candace.
  9. Go back to the village chief’s house.

Into the Desert

Teleport to Caravan Ribat. You will run into Alhaitham here. After speaking with him, follow him for a bit and then teleport to Aaru Village. Here, you will meet Cyno and Candice for the first time and watch a lengthy cutscene before you head into the village chief’s house to settle the group’s differences.

Once all the characters have their feeling sorted out, leave the house and proceed to the location marked on your map. Once here, two waves of Rifthounds will spawn. Make quick work of them so that you can speak to Cyno again and then Candace. At this point, you will then head back to the chief’s house, where you will begin Act 4 of the Sumeru Archon Quest.

After exiting the scene, you will go into a cutscene where Nahida is attacked. After this, you will be reunited with Tighnari and told to head to Caravan Ribat right outside the Sumeru desert. This will trigger the final mission of this act, The Four at Loggerheads to trigger.
