Diluc speaking to the Bartender Charles in his tavern, the Angel’s Share.


Venti’s plan to steal the Holy Lyre went off without a hitch. Well, almost when the Lyre was almost in your hands, a stranger stole it from under your noses. Your movements alerted the guards, forcing you to flee the Cathedral.

  1. Use the wind currents to get far away from the Cathedral
  2. Hide in the Tavern
  3. Hide on the second floor of the tavern
  4. Talk to Diluc

Use the wind currents to get far away from the Cathedral

This quest starts immediately after the cut scene, you’ll have 50 seconds to escape. What you’ll need to do, is use the wind currents to take you across Mondstadt. Jump over the balcony, into the wind currents, which’ll take you past the head of the large statue. Go through all the currents, and you shouldn’t have any problem. When you have done all of that, the currents should drop you outside the Angel’s Share Tavern

Hide in the Tavern

As you enter the tavern, you’ll be treated to a cut scene, Charles, the bartender of the tavern is having a chat with Diluc, Venti will interrupt them, asking for a seat at the least conspicuous table, will tell you that the second floor has fewer customers up there. Diluc will tell Charles to keep an eye on you as there’s something strange about Venti, and he’ll ask around about him.

Hide on the second floor of the tavern

Head up the spiral stairs, and take a seat at table in front of them for a scene, Two of the guards are asking Diluc if he’s seen two thieves around, he’ll ask what’s happened, and they’ll explain the situation about the Lyre. After thinking out loud, he covers for you, and sends the guards back outside.

Talk to Diluc

Go back down the stairs and speak with Diluc for another scene. Venti tries to order a drink before Diluc interrupts him, and demands answers, he’ll then tell you that he admires the courage it took to steal the Holy Lyre, and Paimon will tell him that it wasn’t you who stole it, and the real thieves are still out there. Venti will explain to him that you’re the one who helped the Knights, and he’ll tell you it’s a pity you joined the Knights, as it doesn’t look like he holds much respect for them.

Venti will tell you and Diluc a story. After the scene ends, Diluc will tell you that the wanted poster only depicts the thieve being blonde, which should make it fine for you, but he suggests Venti stays in the tavern, and that you should all meet up after the tavern closes. This’ll end the quest and reward you with the achievement “Knights and their Knotty Issues”.
