For the Children of the Past Quest Guide

Follow Arama into "Old Vanarana"

Genshin - Arama
Explore the uncharted location of "Old Vanarana" with Arama. The area is highly dangerous due to the constant effects of The Withering, so you'll need to stay inside Arama's protective circle at all times to prevent the Decay debuff from accumulating!

How to Clear Decay

Go to Search for the Inscriptions

Genshin - Finding the Inscriptions with Arama
You will need to find all three Inscriptions of Remembrance runes inside huts in Old Vanarana while being guided by Arama. Arama will lead you to all locations, so just stay inside its protective barrier while fending off the enemies on your way to these Inscriptions!

All Inscriptions of Remembrance

Go to the Seal with Arama

Genshin - Go to the Seal with Arama
While still being guided by Arama, head deep into Old Vanarana inside a hole in the tree trunk. You'll encounter a barrier like the one above, but Arama will take care of it for you. Drop down the hole and continue forward to the sand room.

Try to Destroy the Tumor of the Withering

Genshin - Destroy the Tumor with Arama

Once you're in the sand room, remember to open the Teleport Waypoint nearby for easy access! Defeat the Ruin Guard and go to the Tumor of the Withering.

This time, you'll find no Withering Branches in sight, so you won't be able to clear it. Instead, just wait for Paimon's dialogue to end, and Arama will destroy it for you! What a helpful companion Arama is!

Burn the Seven Stone Pillar Seals

Genshin - Pyro Attacks to the Seal

Hit all green pillars with Pyro to burn the seals. You can find four of the seals in the main room, while the other three are locked behind a flower that can be opened with the Rhythm of the Beastly Trails.

Seven Seals Locations
Behind a sunken Ruin Guard to the right of Arama.
In-between two deactivated Ruin Guards.
By the Candle of Life brazier closest to the entrance.
On the edge of the room behind Arama.
Play the Rhythm of the Beastly Trail on the flower, and the path will open to the fifth seal.
Just ahead of the fifth seal, guarded by a Fungi.
Remove the vines by activating the Dendrograna with Rhythm of the Sprouts. Afterwards, hit all floating green rings in sequence. The seventh seal is found after removing the vines.

How to Try to Lift the Seal

Defeat the Ruin Machine

Genshin - Defeat the Ruin Machine
When looking for a way down, you'll encounter this Ruin Grader in the sand. Attempt to defeat the Ruin Grader twice in a row, although you won't be able to destroy it. Again, your ever-helpful companion Arama will defeat it for you after a certain time!

Use the Candle of Light Braziers

Genshin - Use the Candle of Light Braziers
As Arama will be stationed behind, you will need to take care of your Decay levels by yourself with the Dendro braziers. Because these protective areas will deactivate after a certain time, you must only light one brazier at a time.

Investigate the Area

After dropping down and talking to Arama, look for all glowing interactable objects in the underground area to advance the quest.

All Investigate the Area Objects
Mural 1 Mural 2
Mural 3 Mural 4
Mural 5 Chair
Aranara House Pool
Baggage and Books

Leave Aramuhukunda's home

Genshin - Leave Aramuhukunda
Return to Arama, then go out the newly revealed path. Go to the deepest part of the cave to complete the quest. Get ready, as you'll need to prepare for the next quest!
