Like the previous quest, “Joy Above the Clouds” in Genshin Impact Windblume’s Breath requires changing the in-game time to an hour between 8:00 and 12:00 after logging in. Of course, if you perform other activities before starting the quest, the correct time should arrive eventually, and Paimon will notify you.

Sucrose and Collei can be found at the mailbox next to the alchemy crafting bench near the Mondstadt City plaza. However, the mailbox has now been replaced with a Clue Board containing all the letters of those you discussed the festival’s prophecy with.

Take a look at the Clue Board and read the letters

The next objective of “Joy Above the Clouds” in Genshin Impact Windblume’s Breath involves reading the letters other characters wrote for Sucrose’s research. Remember that you do not have to read every letter to progress. For instance, we only checked CynoTighnari, and Sucrose before moving on.

After you’ve read several letters, talk again with Sucrose, after which the rest of the team will assemble at the fountain to embark on the search for the Lantern of Utmost Joy.

After talking with Klee’s mother and learning about the disbanded group of Hexenzirkel mages, you must now return to Mondstadt City. The wind currents will still be present for your descent, but we recommend simply fast traveling back to town to save time. After a heartfelt conclusion with Sucrose and Collei’s ultimate discovery, the Windblume’s Breath Event’s “Joy Above the Clouds” will conclude, and you will receive your quest rewards in Genshin Impact.
