Genshin Impact: Legend of the Shattered Halberd

Finding books can be a fascinating read, especially for those who love lore!

There are so many items in Genshin Impact, some items used to do nothing. Then the first major game update 1.1 released, a few of these items turned into precious Ascension level items, Starconch we're looking at you! Some items players can collect are books; these can be bought from shops for some lore into the game's world. However, sometimes you'll receive a quest that you need to find a series of books!

Genshin Impact Legend of the Shattered Halberd

To complete the quest Legend of the Shattered Halberd in Genshin Impact, players must locate six books of these novels to finish the quest. In doing so, you also earn the Divine Halberd Mocks the Heaven's achievement. This is a 4-Star rated achievement, so it's worthwhile getting!

To start this quest, head to Liyue Harbor, locate the Wanwen Bookhouse, and speak to Jifang there. This bookseller will sell the first, fourth, and fifth Legend of the Shattered Halberds books, which is incredibly handy. However, the three books will cost you 9000 Mora!

For the third installment of the series, head back to Liyue and talk to the Storyteller called Tea Master Liu Su, though the time has to be after 9 AM. He will then tell you a bunch of different stories; either read them and get immersed or click through them. Eventually, he'll tell you the right story, and he will give you the third book.

The sixth book can be received by following the Bookworm Swords questline you get from Xingqui at Adventure Rank 26. After you finish this entire quest, you'll receive the final book of the series as a reward.

The second volume can be found at Wuwang Hill in the Liyue region, just teleport to the fast-travel waypoint and head towards the couple at Pop's Teas, called Hauchu and Jianqiu, and on the table they are sitting at, the second book will be there. And with this final book, the achievement Divine Halberd Mocks the Heaven's will be unlocked!

Though if you want to listen to an audiobook series, head on over to KSLCross YouTube channel and give them a listen! Why not when in the Liyue region, try and level up the Reputation Level in Liyue to be award with some really cool items such as the Geo Resonance Stone, the Geo Treasure Compass the Adepti Seeker's Stove!

About the Author

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. For some reasons I can’t find the 2nd book around the area..those NPCs are not there !

    1. That is odd! Have you tried changing the time to every hour of the clock? That’s the only solution I can think of, but the only time-specific one I found was the storyteller!
