How to listen to Zhiyi and Linlang chat in Yelan’s Story Quest – Genshin Impact Calculated Gambit

Don't get caught!

The Umbrabilis Orchis Chapter: Act I - Calculated Gambit is Yelan's Story Quest, which covers the candidate selection process for the next Tianshu of the Liyue Qixing. The Story Quest is divided into three parts, the second of which is called Candidature Analysis. It requires you to sneak up on Zhiyi and Linlang chatting in the North Wharf of Liyue Harbor. If you get caught, you need to start trailing them all over again. Here's a breakdown of how you can remain unnoticed the entire time.

Once the trailing segment starts, run to the left and crouch behind the red wagon by clicking on the Normal Attack button. Reference the image above for the exact position you can take to not get caught. Once Linlang and Zhiyi start moving, remain crouched and dash as you move to the next position.

Move to the right and crouch beside the big red pot, then wait for Zhiyi and Linlang's dialogue. When they start moving again, adjust your position while remaining crouched by using the dash button.

Move slightly forward and crouch behind the crates with a chest on top. Zhiyi and Linlang will continue to speak. Wait for them to part ways, then use the Normal Attack to switch to a standing position and chase after Zhiyi. This will prompt the Story Quest to continue with Yelan's dialogue.
