Genshin Impact Sounds From Afar Weinlesefest Event Quest guide

Upon initiating the Sounds From Afar Event Quest, you'll be asked to speak to Katheryne in Monstadt. Kaeya will appear to invite you to head to the Knights of Favonius Headquarters to listen to Mika deliver a letter from Grand Master Varka. After listening to his speech, head to Jean's office to speak with her and Lisa. You'll be informed that the Grand Master left a little box connected to Razor's parents.

Follow the quest marker to Springvale, then use Elemental Sight to follow the purple Electro traces, which will lead you to Razor's location. After speaking with Razor and Draff, head back to the Knights of Favonius Headquarters to speak with Lisa.

Once that's done, you need to change the in-game time to two days later (two rotations), then fast forward to anytime between 8:00 to 10:00. Then, teleport to Springvale where the Weinlesefest is taking place. After listening to Jean, speak with Venti to complete the Event Quest.
