How to complete the Archon Quest Empty Abode

This page is designed to help you progress through the main story quest, known as Archon Quests in Genshin Impact. This specific page will guide you where you need to go, and who you need to talk to.

The Traveler reaching the top of Stormterror’s Lair.


Assailed by many enemies, you realize that this road will not be an easy one. The way into Stormterror’s Lair is strewn with obstacles, and so you must proceed with caution to find a path along the ruined walls.

  1. Go towards Stormterror’s Lair
  2. Enter the tower
  3. Find a way through the wind barrier
  4. Go to the upcurrent
  5. Look for a way to the top of the tower

Go towards Stormterror’s Lair

Head up the stairs, and follow the path forward, and follow the dilapidated wall onto the bridge. Head across the bridge to where the objective marker is, and you’ll get a scene. It appears you can’t get through this way, and Paimon will notice a giant hole in the roof. The camera will pan up, and show you the hole she’s talking about, and Venti will mention using the wind current to reach it.

Enter the tower

Head up the stairs to your northeast, and follow it around. You’ll come into contact with some Hilichurls, defeat, or run past them, and climb the next set of stairs, until you reach the top. You’ll see the wind current that Venti was speaking about, head over to it.

Find a way through the wind barrier

You can either burn the thorns with Pyro, or use the wind current to fly over them, either way head west. You’ll see some more enemies whilst making your way around, once again fight or run past them, and continue up the next flight of stairs, by either burning the thorns with Pyro, or walking around, and climbing up.

Go to the upcurrent

Head south, and climb the wall in front of you, then climb the wall that comes after, until you reach the locked Statue of the Seven, interact with it, and this’ll unlock the statue, as well as unlocking the map of the area.

Look for a way to the top of the tower

Paimon will point out the wind current to you, jump on it, and glide over to the east, on to the circular platform, and open up the Exquisite Chest. Follow the path around, then go up the makeshift ramp. Head past the immobile Ruin guard, and continue around to the next up current, jump on it, and glide southwest, on to the next platform, and you’ll get a scene. Venti will point out that you can’t proceed any further, because the ruins seem to be guarded by ancient seals. Diluc will mention that the white object nearby, is a light actuator, if he’s not mistaken, and that if you reintegrate all the parts, you should be able to get it working. Jean will tell you that you should put the last part back and see if it works. With that the quest will end.
