No topic is too sensitive for Hu Tao - certainly not matters of life and death - and even though some of her points make sense, you find them somewhat difficult to stomach. Then, when you voice your doubts about her approach, she tells you that she has long since moved on from business development to her next objective: finding someone called Big G.

Friendships, Wishes, and Regrets

Genshin Impact - Friendships Wishes and Regrets

Meng tells you that Big G is his childhood friend, who died by misadventure. Filled with regret and worry, Meng believes that due to a supernatural turn of events, Big G has become an evil spirit. Luocheng, another superstitious person who believes in ghost stories just like Meng, visits the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor seeking an exorcism.

Similar to Xiao, Hu Tao's skill will decrease her HP whenever you use it, so having a healer in your party is highly recommended.

How to Get Out of the Loop in the Domain

One part of the domain will having you looping a certain area.

In order to end the loop, take the blue orb but don't place it in one of the stone lanterns yet, instead go ahead and follow the path with the spider blocking the way. Keep going until you make it back to the room with two lanterns and you will find that another blue orb has appeared.

Place the orb that you're carrying into one of the stone lanterns and pick up the new blue orb and place it into the second stone lantern.
