(Talk to Amber)
Amber: This is it. One of the deserted temples of The Four Winds.
Amber: These temples have been left to waste for years now. The people of Mondstadt almost never come here.
Amber: There's a chance there's a monster nest or a hilichurl camp inside.
Amber: Even Stormterror has given up on its own temple.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg "Stormterror...?"
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Wait, did you just say "its own temple...?"
Amber: ...Yes.
Amber: I also find it hard to accept, but... Stormterror was once one of The Four Winds.
Paimon: Ehhhh!?
Amber: Wait... Did you just feel that?
Amber: The wind here... Something's off...
Amber: Let's go in and take a look, (Traveler). Be careful, the dragon's power is disturbing this area.
(Talk to Amber again)
Amber: Everyone in Mondstadt is still getting blown about by the storm...
Amber: Every second we waste is a mark against the name of Favonius. Let's get in that temple, stat!

(Approach the door)
Amber: You can use that console to open the door.
(Enter the next room)
Amber: Wow! I can see so far into the temple!
(After defeating a hilichurl)
Amber: Oh no! A horn!
Amber: The fighting must have got them riled up.
Amber: Well, good thing I've prepared my secret weapon: Explosive Puppet "Baron Bunny"!
(Enter the next room)
Amber: Are those explosive barrels over there?
Amber: Well... One shot should be able to blow them up!
(Approach the chasm)
Amber: It's so high... Seems like there's something up there.
Paimon: But how do we get across?
Paimon: Isn't this... a Pyro Monument?
Paimon: If we hit it with a powerful Pyro attack, we might trigger it!
(Reaching the end)
Amber: Dragon's breath! Is that where the power is coming from?
Amber: Great, let's smash it!
(After destroying Stormterror's crystal)
Amber: Phew, I'm tired.
Amber: But, at least this way we've helped Jean out.
Amber: In the past, we were at least able to defend the city and keep it safe.
Amber: This, of course, is mostly thanks to Jean.
Amber: But now with Stormterror directly attacking the city itself...
Amber: "The winds change, so too should our tactics."
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Sounds deep.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Did you come up with it?
Amber: It's what Lisa likes to say.
Amber: Speaking of which, The Four Winds we were discussing earlier...
Amber: If you want to learn more about our history, you can ask Lisa.
Amber: ...I'm not saying I don't know our history! It's just...
Amber: I mean... A librarian is supposed to be more knowledgeable than an Outrider, right?
