How to complete the Bonds of Melody Quest in the Genshin Impact Of Ballads and Brews event
Bonds of Melody is a simple quest that only involves speaking to various Monstadt characters. After unlocking the Bonds of Melody quest, fast-forward your in-game time by two days (two rotations), and end at any time between 8:00 to 10:00. Then head to Springvale to meet Razor, Klee, and Bennett. After speaking with them, a merchant named Marcel will ask you to check on his cart.
Follow the quest marker or head straight ahead to find a group of Hilichurls attacking a cart. During this part, you can use Razor as a trial character. Defeat the Hilichurls and head to the glowing spot to prompt dialogue with Rosaria, who will give Razor an ingredient for his wine. After speaking with her, head to the Knights of Favonius Headquarters to meet Lisa and Kaeya. And once that’s done, proceed by heading inside the Dawn Winery with Kaeya to ask Diluc for a barrel to make Razor’s wine. After the dinner scene, exit the Dawn Winery to complete the Event Quest.
