  1. Return to Mondstadt
  2. Return to the Knights of Favonius headquarters with Jean

Return to Mondstadt

Head east of the Knights of Favonius Headquarters, and you’ll get a scene, it appears Jean is speaking to a woman wearing a mask, Paimon suggest you wait until she’s finished speaking. By overhearing them speak, you’ll find out that the masked woman, is Anastasia, a Fatui Diplomat. It appears she’s not happy with the way the Knights are dealing with the Stormterror threat, and if the Knights are unable to deal with it promptly, then the Fatui will gladly take their place.

As the scene ends, another will take place, this time with you and Paimon. She’ll thank you for your help with the elemental flow, and let you know that the aftermath of Stormterror’s last attack is settled for now. She’ll explain to you that the problems with the Fatui are getting out of hand, and she’ll tell you a bit about them. Furthermore, she’ll then go on to say that it’s best spoken about in private.

Return to the Knights of Favonius headquarters with Jean

Head west to the Knights of Favonius Headquarters, and enter the building. Jean’s room is the first door on your left, enter it, and she’ll be talking to Lisa about an ominous crystal, which seems embedded with some kind of power, she’ll ask Lisa to analyze it. Lisa will tell Jean that she needs more time to come up with an analysis, and she’ll take a look in the library’s restricted section. She’ll get nearer to it, and it’ll give her a little spark, which she thinks is weird as it doesn’t react to you, even though you have elemental abilities too. She’ll tell Jean to leave it in your capable hands. Jean will ask one more favor of you, to accept the title of Honorary Knight, and her thanks. The scene will end, as will the quest, rewarding you with the achievement “Knighthood Excellence”.
