Genshin Impact’s lengthy “Aranyaka” quest has an unguided portion called “Children of the Forest” in the second part, sending you off to “adventure with Aranara” around the map, but you may not know where to go to complete this part of the quest.
In order to proceed in Aranyaka: Part 2 (Dream Nursery), you’ll need to complete the following world quests:
- “Agnihotra Sutra,” AKA the quest that gives you the “Kusava” gadget and allows you to fix Dendro pillars
- “Varuna Gatha”
- “Vimana Agama”
- “An Unwavering Culinary Dream”
- “Sproutling Seedlings”
- “The Rhythm that Leads to the Gloomy Path”
- “The Rhythm that Nurtures the Sprout”
- “The Rhythm that Reveals the Beastly Trail”
Those last three quests will appear as subquests in your journal, and you can be guided to their locations using the in-game navigation. The others will not be marked.
To help you out, we’ve marked the starting locations of the other quests below. Note that some of these quests are long, so it might take a bit of time to clear them all. Once you do, “Children of the Forest” will automatically complete and you’ll be able to move on to the next step.
Agnihotra Sutra world quest location
This quest temporarily gives you the “Kusava” fruit gadget, which allows you to fix broken Dendro pillars. It also drains the cavern near the NPCs in the image above, allowing it to become fully explorable.
Varuna Gatha world quest location
This quest takes you down underground to a grand sapling that allows you to change the weather in a specific area.
Vimana Agama world quest location
This quest sends you into the sprawling robot cavern in Devantaka Mountain.
An Unwavering Culinary Dream world quest location
This quest sends you after many Aranara who provide you with special cooking recipes for completing their quests.
Sproutling Seedlings world quest location
This quest auto-completes once you talk to Aranakula. It involves growing Viparyas, the iridescent flowers around the sprout town.
