Inside the City Hall, Speak to Sanhua
Speak to Sanhua

When you are waiting inside the City Hall, you will meet Sanhua. Jinhsi is not at the City Hall, but you will receive some items she left for you (Fruit, Leaf, Small Device, and Candy). It looks like by finding out the meaning of the Tokens, you will get the answers you are looking for.

Also, it seems that you will be able to meet Jinhsi if you solve the puzzle within 3 days.

Join up with Yangyang & Chixia

Find Tacet Discord in Simulated Training Ground
Meet Tacet Discord

To gather combat data, Rover will enter a Simulated Training Ground and you will start a Combat Test. You complete it without any problems but when you try to leave, you lose contact with the real world and are suddenly attacked by an unknown Tacet Discord.

Return to the Real World & Investigate the Tokens
Return to the real World

Right before you are attacked by the Tacet Discord, you return to the real world. The exact reasons are unknown, but they think Rover somehow affected the system. But since they didn't find anything wrong with Rover's body, you go back to the Token's investigation.

Get Test Results back on Sundial
Get Results for Sundial

You will get the test results from Mortefi about the Sundial. It looks like there is something inside it and they also found that it is missing some parts.

You gather the missing pieces in the Academy and have Mortefi put them together for you.

Listen to Reports on Tokens
Speak to Baizhi

You receive the reports on the Mangosteen, Leaf, and Candy from Baizhi. They found out that the Candy is actually an oral vaccine. The expiration date was 20 years ago, so they think it might be a vaccine for a plague that happened 20 years ago.

Receive Sundial from Mortefi

They fixed the Sundial and you receive it from Mortefi. Find out the correct time and direction and turn the needle to solve the puzzle.

Search the Database about the Sugar Pearl
Database for Sugar Pearl

To further investigate the Candy, you start investigating the archives of the Academy. It looks like on the "Wei" shelf, there are documents on the candy type vaccine. While you are looking into it, you find out that there was a Resonator that is similar to Rover a long time ago.

Rover will Investigate on the Tokens
Rover will Investigate

Rover takes another look at all the clues. It looks like the "Wei" shelf that had the Candy files is the key to unlock the Sundial puzzle.

You discuss this with Yangyang to see what Jinhsi is trying to tell them. By investigating the other Tokens, you will get more hints on solving the Sundial's puzzle.

Someone is Watching Rover from Afar
Sanhua watching from above

Join up with Chixia to talk about what happened. Then you see 2 mysterious figures and Sanhua watching over them...

Character Introduction



The bodyguard of Jinzhou's Magistrate, known for having an icy personality. Once regarded as the Asura of Calamity, Sanhua is now a taciturn guardian. She has learned to maintain inner calmness amidst the chaotic frequencies, and the things that once frightened her now fuel her determination.



A skilled expert in Applied Tacetite Study and a member of the Academy's Department of Safety, possesses the unique ability to transform his accumulated frustration into fiery flames. From a burning wrath that consumes all, the red dragon shall descend.


4 Tokens

MangosteenMangosteenJinhsi's Token I. An ordinary fruit that somehow bears a striking resemblance to the old model of Tacetite Grenade. This is not an indigenous species, as its growth conditions don't agree with the climate of Jinzhou. It's imported by water via the Gunchao Port located in the South.
LeafLeaf affected by "Waveworn"Jinhsi's Token II. A purple leaf with traces of dual Tacet Discord frequencies. The asynchronous fluctuations of the frequencies caused them to cancel each other out and rendered them hard to track. Could it be that there were actually two separate Tacet Fields surrounding the tree where this leaf originated from?
SundialThe Unlocked SundialJinhsi's Token III. An unlocked Sundial-shaped puzzle box. The direction and time symbols on its disks have been rearranged. However, you have already obtained the key information given by the Jinzhou Magistrate. Now, it appears to be an ordinary small sundial. Only upon closer inspection can you see a faint light source at the tip and the shadow of the needle is distorted, almost like a hushed whisper.
Sugar PearlSugar PearlJinhsi's Token IV. A sweet oral vaccine, reminiscent of candy for children in Jinzhou, symbolizes their triumph over the epidemic.

The items from Jinhsi. By understanding the meaning of the tokens, Rover may find out what Jinhsi is trying to tell them. Rover will work with Yangyang and Chixia to solve the Token's puzzles.
