LEAVES: Players will be searching for dry leaf piles

The second quest of Act I: Ode to Flower and Cloud is titled Those Hard-to-Reach Places and has players cleaning up piles of dry leaves on top of houses.

After completing the first quest, Ode to Flower and Cloud, players can head right over to Aramis to kick off Those Hard-to-Reach Places.

He is located on the eastern side of Mondstadt plaza at the bottom of the cathedral stairs.

Here is the basic flow of the quest:

  1. Talk to Aramin in the Mondstadt plaza
  2. Find the three areas, one by one, marked on the map below and use Anemo abilities to blow away leaf piles
    1. The first area will have three piles to clear
    2. The second area will have four piles to clear
    3. The third area will have three piles to clear
  3. Find the cat (just a bit north on the city walls of the last set of leaf piles)
  4. Return to Aramin

LEAVES: Follow the numbers in order

This is a pretty straightforward quest and takes only around five to ten minutes to complete.

Gliding from a high place to get to the various rooftops tends to be easier than climbing walls, and if players have Venti they can use his Elemental Skill to easily boost themselves up higher.

Players should make sure to have a character with Anemo abilities in their party, as they will be needed to clear the leaves off rooftops.


After talking to Aramin the final time, players will be rewarded for the quest and move on to the next.
