It has been a while since you struck an agreement with Beidou to go to Inazuma together. You decide to check on how things are progressing…


  1. Talk to Katheryne in Liyue Harbor
  2. Board the Alcor and find Beidou
  3. Talk to Beidou

Talk to Katheryne in Liyue Harbor

The quest starts off with you needing to speak to Katheryne in Liyue. Open your map, and teleport to the lower Liyue Waypoint, then head east, along the path, to the Adventurer’s Guild, and speak to Katheryne. You’ll tell her that you’ll be travelling to Inazuma, and that you can’t take any more commissions for a while. You’ll be interrupted by Sea Drake. He’ll tell you that Captain Beidou has sent for you, and they’re read to weigh anchor as soon as you’re aboard the ship. Katheryne will make a little joke about her being at multiple Adventurer’s Guilds whilst the Sea Drake will tell you that the Alcor is anchored off of Guyun Stone Forest.

Board the Alcor and find Beidou

Teleport to the Domain of Guyun, head east, and climb the mountain to your right. Once on top, glide towards the ship, and aim for the first oar. Climb the oar towards the rope on the ship, and climb up. When you’re aboard the Alcor, head to the southern end of the ship, and speak to Beidou.

(1 of 3) From the Domain of Guyun, head east and climb the mountain

Talk to Beidou

Beidou will joke about you being late, then you’ll get an animated cut scene. When the scene ends, you’ll be in Inazuma, and you and the Captain will be greeted by Thoma. Beidou will try to introduce you, but apparently your reputation precedes itself, she’ll tell you that Thoma is the fixer around Ritou, and he’ll tell you to get registered at the border checkpoint. After the scene ends, so will the quest, with the next one starting immediately.
