Venti's New Plan is the sixth part in the Teyvat storyline Archon Quests, Prologue, Act II: For a Tomorrow Without Tears.


  1. Talk to Venti
  2. Enter the Cathedral at night (18:00 – 06:00)
    • Enter the basement during the night by interacting with the staircase at the end of the Cathedral
  3. Infiltrate the basement and obtain the Holy Lyre der Himmel
    • This will involve a Stealth mission where the objective is to avoid being spotted by the NPCs.
    • To get through undetected, stay to the left side at all times. You can hide yourself between bookshelves and the center wall. To pass the first guard, you can stand at the pillar on the right until the guard passes then run for the wooden ladder.


(Talking to Venti)
Venti: It didn't work... I knew it.
Paimon: You "knew it"?
Venti: I just wanted to know how influential (Traveler) — the hotshot of the Knights of the Favonius — is.
Venti: You see, the best warrior should always be presented with the best sword, and yet here we are...
Venti: Does the story not make for a fitting ballad?
Paimon: So what are you trying to say? That we're not good enough?
Venti: No, that's not it. More of a commentary regarding Mondstadt's inability to see the warrior standing right before its very eyes.
Venti: Very well. Looks like borrowing it is not going to be possible. We're simply going to have to steal it.
Venti: Today we stand for free will! Any suggestions on just how we steal it?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg ...
Venti: Come now, speak up. That's what free will is for.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I don't want to steal anything!
Venti: Hahaha, look at you. Sidetracked from the start.
Venti: But seriously, you're more suitable for the job than I.
Venti: Aside from singing, I don't really have any other talents.
Venti: Besides, if I was caught, I'd have no one to right the grave injustice of my arrest.
Paimon: How can it be a "grave injustice" if you got caught stealing red-handed?
Venti: But things are different for (Traveler). You are the superstar of the Knights of Favonius. You have made contributions to Mondstadt.
Venti: Should you get caught, you would easily be able to talk your way out of it.
Venti: The guards here, it seems they're off duty throughout the night.
Venti: If we manage to seize this opportunity, it should be smooth sailing from here.
Paimon: Stop mentioning us getting caught!
Venti: (Traveler)... What do you say?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I'm sorry– Wait... Did you just say... you're Barbatos?
Venti: Ah, yes. Seems I did mention that...
Venti: Your point being?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg If you really are a god, then we can't simply abandon you.
Venti: Why does your decision hinge upon whether or not I am a god?
Paimon: Paimon'll fill you in on (Traveler)'s background story when we get the time...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg And if you're not a god, then I'll help Dvalin anyway.
Venti: Huh?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I will bring you the Holy Lyre der Himmel.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I don't want to see another separation.
(Talk to Venti again)
Venti: Don't be shy. Go.
(Attempt to enter the basement of Cathedral during daytime)
Otto: Man, this stinks. Having to stand around here all day long, having to guard this entrance. Hey! Don't move! You can't go down there!
Paimon: Seems we're gonna have to wait until nightfall to sneak in...

(In the basement, upon reaching the Holy Lyre, a Fatui Electro Cicin Mage steals it right before your eyes)
Paimon: Oh?
Paimon: Who're you!?
Paimon: She... disappeared!?
Knight of Favonius: Freeze!
Knight of Favonius: What are you doing here!?
Paimon: Oh no! Run!
(Outside the Cathedral, while running away)
Paimon: Oh nooooo...
Paimon: We're busted! Run!
Venti: What!? Follow me!
