The Wild Escape quest sets you off on your way to elude guards who have caught you in your attempt to obtain the Holy Lyre.
Although it was not you who was able to steal the Holy Lyre, you were the one who was left behind at the crime scene.
Now that the guards are on your tail, you will need to make a run for it and find a place to hide until the coast is clear.
How To Get Wild Escape Quest?
The Wild Escape quest begins immediately after you have completed the Venti’s New Plan quest, which continues from the part where you were found by guards. This is the seventh quest in Prologue Act II – For a Tomorrow Without Tears and involves you gliding away and running away from your pursuers.
Wild Escape Quest Objectives
1) Escape the Cathedral
The guards are hot on your trail and you will need to make a quick escape from them, leaving the cathedral as quickly as possible.
This requires that you jump out and start gliding through the wind currents to head towards the waypoint marking your escape.
2) Use the Wind Currents to Get Far Away from the Cathedral
As you are gliding through the air, there will be a timer that will cause you to become caught if it runs out before you reach the marked area.
You can simply glide your way towards the waypoint or use the wind currents to get there faster before the timer runs out.
Once you are near the waypoint, it will be marking the entrance of a nearby tavern which is where you will need to hide.
Approach the entrance and interact to go inside so that you can proceed with hiding there from the guards who are after you.
3) Hide in the Tavern
A cutscene will begin once you enter the tavern where you will see Diluc with Venti asking for a less conspicuous table.
Diluc will suggest the second floor but will be a bit intrigued by why he wishes to be in a more secluded area.
4) Hide on the Second Floor of the Tavern
After the cutscene, you will need to head up to the second floor and once you reach the area, another cutscene will play.
Guards will rush in and ask Diluc if he has seen you but to your surprise, he diverts them away from where he knows you hide.
5) Talk to Diluc
Once the guards have left the tavern, head over to Diluc to talk to him and this will once again start another cutscene.
During the dialogue, Diluc will question why you attempted to steal the Holy Lyre and Venti will tell him with song.
It seems that after all the information that has been shared as Venti was performing, Diluc has become interested and might just help out.
Wild Escape Rewards
After you have completed the Wild Escape quest, you will receive Adventure EXP, Character EXP, Mora, and other rewards.
The rewards come in the following amounts:
- 250 Adventure EXP
- 2850 Character EXP
- 2750 Mora
Additionally, you will receive:
- 5 Fine Enhancement Ore
Completing this quest will also unlock the Knights and Their Knotty Issues achievement.
You were able to escape the guards who were pursuing you and it turns out they do not have much of a description to fit you, making it safe to freely roam Mondstadt.
Diluc was rather quite interested in the whole story and after learning about what was going on, he decided to help out.
It looks like Venti may have to stay in the tavern for now but you should be able to continue figuring out what became of the Holy Lyre.
