Under Xiao’s guidance, you prepare to use adepti arts to recover the Sigil of Permission and warn the false adeptus of his evil ways. You will confront the false adeptus in a dream and teach him a lesson…

Go to the southern face of Mt. Tianheng / Collect Items need for the Ritual

Upon completing Act 1: The Purging of Evil, fast travel to the south of Mt. Tianheng to find a gentleman named Pervases standing by a destroyed building. After the conversation has come to a close, pick up the censer which is on the right of the building, then collect a lamp from the side of the building. Now walk along the bottom edge of the orange circle to find the remaining six.

(1 of 3) Collect Censer

After collecting the Censer and Seven-Star Lamps, speak with Pervases again, then go to the fast travel located to the northwest of Dawn Winery to find three Mist Flowers bunched up by the water.

Head to the Yaksha Statues after Nightfall / Punish the false adeptus’ spirit

With all the items needed, return to the location marked on your map, then forward the time to around 19-20. Speak with Xiao to learn more about the ritual, then approach it and meditate with Paimon before bringing out Amber and shooting arrows at the blue points on the statues.

(1 of 2) Use any bow character to shoot the statues

Use any bow character to shoot the statues (left), then defeat Starsnatcher. (right)

After the conversation with Starsnatcher has concluded, you’ll begin a battle against him. All you’ll need to do here is keep your attacks to prevent him from attacking you, then once his HP is around 40% he’ll surrender and another scene will play out. Finally, go to Wangshu Inn and speak with both Verr Goldet and Xiao to bring Act 1 to a close.
