How to Handle Honkai: Star Rail’s ‘From Xianzhou with Love’
Honkai: Star Rail Adventure Missions can sometimes ask us to help influence the ending. In “To the Faint Star,” we need to decide whether to tell the truth or a lie. The same happens in another questline called “From Xianzhou with Love.” It involves a members-only Foxian Beauty Chat. You’re tasked with aiding Asta in helping a Herta Space Station researcher enamored with a possible scam artist called Daiqing. Along the way, you’ll need to find an “in” to talk to her “manager,” try to lure her into scamming you, and then deciding what to do with the person behind the persona once you hit the end. There are a lot of steps to “From Xianzhou with Love” in Honkai: Star Rail, so here’s how it all goes.
Editor’s note: There will be spoilers for the Honkai: Star Rail mission “From Xianzhou with Love”below.
First, you’ll talk with both Asta and Wen Furui to get a better grasp of the situation on Herta Space Station. It will end with you heading to the Xianzhou Luofu to deliver the item Wen Furui’s Gift and investigate the Foxian Beauty Diaqing.
Once you get to the Central Starskiff Haven, you’ll need to try and find your Daiqing contact. This is one of those highlighted spaces where you’ll have to find and talk to three folks. In each case, you’re supposed to say the keyphrase, “Acquaintance from the mortal coil, luxurious gifts from beyond.” The three people to speak to here all have a name over their heads, making them easy to identify when you’re near them. You want to talk to the Passerby Hunk, and Sociable Foxian Man.
Here are screenshots I took showing what each one looks like and where they are in the area.
You won’t find your contact. Wen Furui will text you with a new location to visit. Go there and you’ll find Qingque. She’s looking for Daiqing too, as one of the people she plays Mahjong with got sucked in by this “Foxian Beauty Chat” too. The two of you decide to use Wen Furui’s gift and a cycrane delivery to track Daiqing down. This sends you to Cloudford. Chasing it down leads you to the person’s “manager.” You’re given a “premium membership.”
It’s time to head back to Asta at Herta Space Station. She allows you to use some of her money so Daiqing can “scam” you. Daiqing offers to sell you some of her grandfather’s tea. You can opt to transfer 50,000,000 or 200,000,000. (I went for the latter, as it was more comical.) You’ll be blocked, and an alt account called Qingster will offer to give you the money back if you go to Cloudford.
You then need to head back there to where the “manager” for Daiqing was before. Qingque will be there with her friend. The two of you will then go to confront Qingster. When you do, two “Cloud Knights” will be there to arrest you, but they’re clearly frauds. Fight them, and you’ll find Qingster and learn the truth. This also means getting a chance to expose the scammer.
Now, I chose the option of forcing Daiqing to be turned in to the authorities. I got the “Cyberfraud” achievement as a result. At which point, he was forced to make restitution to the people he wronged. I did check in with a friend who chose to make Daiqing reveal his identity, which resulted in them getting a different achievement (Tootsie), but a similar outcome of Wen Furui transferring to Xianzhou Luofu.
Regardless of which option you choose, you get an achievement (worth 5 Stellar Jades) and the quest reward of 2 Traveler’s Guides, 25 Strales, 40 Stellar Jades, 250 Trailblaze EXP, and 15,000 Credits.
Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.
