Return to Liyue Harbor and find Childe

Teleport to the upper Liyue Waypoint, and head south, then west up the red stairs all the way to the top to the Northland Bank, and speak to Childe waiting outside of it for a scene. He’ll ask how your journey to Jueyun Karst was, you’ll tell him, and he’ll have some information for you in return. The Qixing, who are the current protectors of Liyue are keeping the Exuvia (Geo Archons vessel) locked up, and if the Qixing can’t rule Liyue properly, then by contract, the adeptis can take over that rulership. Once the scene ends, you’ll be rewarded with the achievement “Of the Land Amidst Monoliths”, and the quest, and chapter will end.
