With every new Genshin Impact update, HoYoverse adds a bunch of new events and quests that players can complete to receive rewards like Primogems, Hero’s Wit, Mora and more. One of them is The Lotus Eater Quest which takes place in Serpent’s Heart in Enkonomiya.
Travellers need to have Adventure Rank 30 or more, and they can find this quest in the “Quest section” of the game. In addition to this, you will first have to unlock it by completing Chapter II: Act III - Omnipresence Over Mortals and The Entrance to Tokoyo quests and play through ''The Subterranean Trials of Drake and Serpent'. Once you do it, you can follow the guide below to complete The Lotus Eater quest.
Genshin Impact: How to complete The Lotus Eater quest
Firstly, you need to travel to the Enkanomiya, set time to Evernight state, and head to a cave at the Northwestern part of Serpent’s Heart. After that, you need to fight with the Ruin Sentinal, guarding the Alter Pattern there and then interact with the wall to make the hidden messages appear. Then you need to head back to the Alter, and the pattern on the Alter will be similar to the one on the wall in the cave.
The patterns that appear will have small dots below them, and if you look around the alter, its doors will also have the same patterns. You will need to enter through the door in a sequence of the pattern in ascending order, and once you do this, you will unlock the Lotus Eater Quest.
After unlocking the alter, an afterimage will appear to talk to you and ask you to find his identity. In order to do this, you need to look for an Ancient Tablet Stone that will be outside the Alter.
Read the given information on the Tablet about the afterimage and return to the afterimage to confirm his name, i.e. Spartacus. Once done, Spartacus will ask you to find the hidden children at Tokoyo Reisen.
Move to the location marked on the map; however, make sure to switch to the Whitenight Phase. Once you reach the quest area, you should be able to see three Triangular Mechanisms with lanterns attached to them that you will have to place in a correct position.
To adjust the lamp, hit the centre and the leftmost triangle twice and the right-most triangle once. A door will open in front of you; head inside and switch to the Evernight Phase using the Whitenight/Evernight Mechanism inside.
After that, go to the underground floor, where you will find an afterimage. Start a conversation with it and select the second option, “After the sun, the darkness starts…” when it says, “Leave. You shouldn’t be here.”
Now go to the marked location on the map, i.e. the Tokoyo Reise, to obtain the Water of Lethe. After that, go to the top of the Dragonbone flower on The Serpent’s Bowels island and water the Dragonbone flower using the Water of Lethe.
Now you need to wait for the flower to condense, and meanwhile, you can begin doing some other quest as it will take time. After the condensation is done, head back to the top of the Dragonbone flower to collect Dragonbone Orb and complete the Lotus Eater quest.
