Troublesome Work Objectives

Quest Objectives
  • Find Lisa in the Library
  • Talk to Lisa
  • Talk to Marjorie about returning the library book
  • Pick a souvenir for Lisa
  • Talk to Sara about returning the library book
  • Order a dish Lisa would like
  • Sit down and dine with Lisa

Head to the library in the Knights of Favonius’ headquarters and speak with Lisa.
Go with Lisa to the Souvenir Shop and speak with Marjorie. Choose a gift for Lisa.
Tips: After choosing an item, you will get a comment from Lisa or the Shop NPCs on the choice, and have to confirm or choose again.

If you are seeing question marks for some choices, you can find the missing options by talking to nearby NPCs related to the store, or choose the available options and change your mind to unlock more dialogue options.
The best choice for Lisa is ultimately the Old Ragged Scroll. Pick your gift then head to the nearby restaurant to confront Sara.
4 You'll now be tasked with choosing a dish that Lisa likes. Speaking to Sara again reveals Lisa has a taste for vegetarian options. Pick the Radish Veggie Soup and sit down.
Make your way to the city gates and speak with Donna about the final book. Donna sells flowers so you know the drill.
After a few choices, Donna will recommend you speak with Flora, the shop owner. Flora is only around during the day so change the time if necessary. She will reveal the final choice, the Cecilia.
Choose your flower and get ready to search for a lost book! Use your Elemental Sight to search for traces of elemental energy and wrap up the first part of this quest.

Lost Book

Many people forget to return the library books they've borrowed, leaving Lisa no choice but to chase them and retrieve the books. Marjorie and Sara have agreed to return the books they've borrowed as soon as possible, but Donna's seems to have been stolen. You decide to track the missing book down by following the trail left by an elemental marking Lisa made on it.

Lost Book Objectives

Quest Objectives
  • Search for elemental marks
  • Find out which way the elemental marks lead
  • Enter the book thief's hiding place
  • Defeat the assailants
  • Defeat the Abyss Order assailant
  • Search for the hidden book
  • Talk to Lisa
  • Take the Teyvat Travel Guide


Continuing from the previous quest, make your way out of Mondstadt and search for more elemental traces. The first set is just across the bridge leaving the city.
Follow the trail to the north and up the cliffside near a Hilichurl camp. The next trace can be found near the Teleport Waypoint west of Thousand Winds Temple.
You will now be following a trail of magic. Keep your Elemental Sight up and follow it to your next destination, the culprit's base.
Lisa will deal with the magical barrier so head into the Abyss Mage's Stronghold.
5 Return to the library once you clear the Domain and speak to Lisa again.
Take the Teyvat Travel Guide off the shelf to complete this quest.
