Hurdle is the second part in the Teyvat storyline Archon Quests, Prologue, Act III: Song of the Dragon and Freedom.


  1. Go to the entrance of Stormterror's Lair
  2. Defeat the assailants
  3. Disperse the wind barrier


(Outside the barrier of the Stormterror's Lair)
Paimon: It's a storm barrier!
Paimon: It looks so dangerous...
Venti: Let me at it.
Venti: Although this wooden lyre is all I have...
Venti: I don't need the lyre to break through this kind of storm barri— Ah, wait, what is that?
(A group of hilichurls attack you)
Jean: Enemy attack! Prepare yourselves!
Venti: The stage will need to be cleared before I can begin my performance.
Venti: Generally speaking such chores are not the concerns of the performer himself...
Jean: Wait. What's going on? Something's not right.
Jean: There shouldn't be any hilichurl camps in the vicinity of Stormterror's Lair...
(After defeating the hilichurls)
Venti: Ahh...
Venti: The hilichurls usually do not venture into areas with high elemental concentrations.
Venti: It puts a heavy burden on their bodies.
Diluc: The Abyss Order must be manipulating them behind the scenes, yet they shouldn't have been able to determine that we would come.
Diluc: They're presumably spreading their forces to halt our plans.
Venti: Without further ado...
Venti: I suppose I can play faster if my only audience is the wind.
(Venti disperses the wind barrier by playing the lyre)
Paimon: It actually opened! You're not entirely useless, Tone-Deaf Bard!
Jean: This is it. We are now entering Stormterror's Lair.
Jean: Watch yourselves. Let's move.
