• Talk to Soraya
SorayaSoraya: Mt. Tianheng... Skybracer... Hmm...
Soraya: Ah, I'm currently researching the history and legends of Lantern Rite.Soraya: I've heard that this year's Mingxiao Lantern is modeled after an adeptus named Skybracer.Soraya: From what legends I've been able to gather, this adeptus also fought alongside Rex Lapis for a time.Soraya: The exact times and the enemies they faced have differed from text to ancient text...Soraya: But all the sources concur that Skybracer has already passed on, and it has been stated that this adeptus once held Mt. Tianheng up with their own antlers.Soraya: That's why I came to Mt. Tianheng to see for myself, thinking that if I got lucky, I might find something...Soraya: But as it turns out, Mt. Tianheng is crawling with monsters. After ascertaining the site for my investigations, I found it to be so full of monsters as to be impassable...Soraya: Traveler, if you're willing, could you help me investigate and take some soil samples?
Soraya: Well, that's what we'd say at the Academia, but what we really mean is some soil from the area in question.Soraya: Local legends hold that Skybracer held Mt. Tianheng up with their own antlers...Soraya: From an academic perspective, it stands to reason that the ground here might have an unusual composition.Soraya: So please, help me go there and retrieve a soil sample.
• Retrieve the Soil Sample
SorayaSoraya: Antlers... Mt. Tianheng... Hmm, if this is real...
• Report back to Soraya
SorayaSoraya: Have you brought the sample back with you?
Soraya: Thank you very much. Let me have a look.Soraya: ...Hmm, there seems to be nothing special about the soil here.
Soraya: The legends say that Skybracer used their strong antlers to protect Liyue Harbor by preventing Mt. Tianheng from collapsing.Soraya: I thought that I could at least find some fragments of those antlers...Soraya: As I thought, legends are just that, legends... Or has so much time passed since that battle that all traces of it have long since vanished?Soraya: Still, getting a soil sample is, in and of itself, not a bad result...Soraya: Traveler, could you accompany me for a while longer? I'd like to head upwards, it shouldn't be too far.
Soraya: This time... I want to get to a vantage point from which I can overlook Mt. Tianheng and study its terrain.Soraya: The tales say that Rex Lapis and many adepti took part in that battle, and very nearly caused Mt. Tianheng to collapse.Soraya: If the battle truly was that fierce, then perhaps we might be able to deduce something from the terrain.

• Talk to Soraya
SorayaSoraya: We're finally here... That journey would have been tough enough even without those monsters...Soraya: Hmm... There doesn't seem to be anything special about the terrain here...Soraya: Huh? What's this in the tree... Oh, it's a Xiao Lantern...Soraya: Why would there be a Xiao Lantern here? Did someone come here to pay their respects to the deceased adeptus?Soraya: There's something written here...Soraya: "May all the world be at peace."
Soraya: Indeed. But this wish... How should I put it... It seems a little too magnificent. This seems neither like a wish, nor a way of paying respects.Soraya: It seems more like a wish that one of those adepti of legend might make.Soraya: I wonder, who would write such a wish onto a Xiao Lantern? How strange...Soraya: Regardless, it seems that at least someone remembered to put a Xiao Lantern up here. That adeptus should be quite pleased.Soraya: Thank you for accompanying me all this way. I'd like to stay here and do a bit more research...Soraya: Ah, yes. This is for you. Consider it thanks for your help.Soraya: *sigh* Liyue has so many legends, and yet my research has seen no progress made at all...
