Meet with Albedo

Meet up with Albedo’s who is at the entrance to Dragonspine, just past the Adventure Camp and speak to him, as you approach him, you’ll receive a cut scene.

Head partway up the mountain

Follow the path south, past the Frostbearing Tree and then west to a campsite which will trigger another scene

Defeat the attacking hilichurls

You will now have to defeat a group of Hilichurls, this group consists of two Cryo Shooters and two Hilichurl Fighters, a combination of Pyro and Electro and Hydro will make this easier. Once these have been defeated, you’ll get another cut scene.

These are especially weak to Pyro.

Follow the footprints to tail the hilichurl

You’ll now need to follow the footprints of the Hilichurl which stole Albedo’s CampsiteCampsite Book, if you look carefully at the floor, you’ll see little white arrows showing where the footprints are, follow them east and then south, under the fallen tree and pastthe campsite, as you approach the campsite, there will be three Hilichurls that spawn, deal with them and continue south, you’ll get another cut scene after a short while.

Destroy the Anemo Amber

After the scene ends, you’ll be tasked with destroying the Ameno Amber, this is a smallish green node with the Anemo symbol engraved on its surface, this can be destroyed with a simple weapon attack and it will create a gust of Anemo energy allowing you to glide.

(1 of 2) Attack the Anemo Amber with any weapon

Attack the Anemo Amber with any weapon (left), as soon as the Amber is attacked, the challenge will start. (right)

Use the wind current to catch up to the Hilichurl

This will start a challenge that gives you 90 seconds to get to the target location, glide south, on top of the ledge that leads to Starglow Cavern, go into the cave and drop/glide south and towards the bottom and exit at the other end, once outside, head west, and then southwest to complete the challenge.

Activate the device and lure the hilichurls out

Interact with the device to start the challenge which requires you to defeat enemies whilst following the Seelie.

Keep near the Seelie to prevent your Seering Cold status from getting too high.

Defeat all opponents and retrieve the sketchbook

You’ll have to defeat seven enemies that consists of two Cryo Hilichurl Grenadiers, one Cryo Samachurl and one Cryo Abyss Mage. After you’ve defeated a few, another two Cryo Shooters will spawn as well as a Ice Shieldwall Mitachurls.

Try to take out the Samachurl first, followed by the Abyss Mage and the Grenadiers last, do this by utilizing Pyro and Electro to full effect, once the other enemies spawn, take out the Shooters first (or keep dodging to avoid them) and then take down the Mitachurl, these can be tough, so use a Geo shield uses like Zhongli to help negate its damage output.

Return to the campsite and look for Albedo

Head back to Albedo’s Campsite and speak to him, after a cut scene, the quest will end and the Event will be unlocked.

Raiders Amidst Snow Mist Event - Act 3

(1 of 3) Go to your map to find the current location of the Draconic Pilgrimage

This event is called the Draconic Pilgrimage and it’s basically what you did at the end of the last quest. You will go to a red marker icon around Dragonspine and interact with it to start a challenge, this will have you following a Seelie whilst you defeat the enemies, which in turn will reward you with a new currency called Warm Essence, you can use this in the Event Shop to purchase a variety of items but most importantly, the Festering Dragon Marrow, this is a refinement material specifically for the Festering Sword and will increase its power. The challenge appears at different locations in Dragonspine which you can see when you go to your map.
