Archon Quests tell the main story of the Traveler and Paimon as they travel the world of Teyvat in search of the Traveler's Lost Sibling. Players need to reach a certain Adventure Rank (AR) to unlock each Act in this storyline.

The difficulty of enemies in Archon Quests as well as the level of trial characters (up to 90) is calculated based on current World Level.

Teyvat Storyline

We had no time to say goodbye, so let's not call it that.

Traveler, Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview[1]

The war has already begun. It is just a continuation of past battles. The gods goad us on with the promise of their seven treasures. Rewards for the worthy. The doorway to divinity. Yet buried in the depths of this world lies smoldering remains, a warning to those that dare trespass. "That throne in the sky is not reserved for you." But mortal arrogation never stops. None will escape the flames. See for yourself.

In the perpetual meantime of a sheltered eternity, most are content to live, and not to dream. But in the hidden corners where the gods' gaze does not fall, there are those who dream of dreaming. Some say a few are chosen and the rest are dregs, but I say we humans have our humanity. We will defy this world with a power from beyond.
