The girl’s name is Amber, and her duty as an Outrider is to escort you to Mondstadt. However, she has another task to attend to first, which is to clean out the hilichurls that have been wandering around outside the city.

Steps

  1. Defeat the nearby hilichurls
  2. Clear out the nearby hilichurl camp
  3. Talk to Amber
  4. Keep heading towards Mondstadt

Walkthrough

Before you rush towards the hilichurl camp, activate the nearby Waypoint to be rewarded with 5 Primogems and then methodically kill the hilichurls around the map marker. This is the perfect time to practise using Amber, especially her charged bow shot and to learn about the Pyro element in general. Enemies also have weak points which you can exploit to deal extra damage so try aiming for the head on the hilichurl and watch the damage numbers increase.

After you kill the hilichurl, Amber will explain she has been tasked with clearing out the nearby camp of hilichurls which can be found just up the hill nearby. Start by removing the crossbow hilichurl using Amber’s ranged attack and then switch to your Traveler to finish off the others, ideally mixing in some Elemental Bursts and attacks to deal greater damage. A new tutorial will explain about Elemental Reactions whereby two Elements combine and react. The combination of Anemo and Pyro results in the Swirl Elemental Reaction in this instance.

(1 of 2) If you charge Amber’s bow, you can cause the Pyro Elemental effect.

Once the hilichurls have been defeated, talk to Amber and then collect the Exquisite Chest rewards. You will receive your first Artifact, powerful accessories used to boost your characters’ stats, which the game will prompt you to equip in the Character screen. After you’ve equipped the Artifact, continue towards Mondstadt to complete the quest, but be sure to watch out for Lynn the Cook by the roadside along the way who has the quest The Art of Cooking.
