This three-phase, four-day Honkai: Star Rail quest tree unlocks after reaching Trailblaze level 34 or higher . Players also need to complete A Gallant Dragon, His Distant Ocean , the second part of the Trailblaze quest, Topclouded Towerthrust. The quest tree itself can end in two distinct ways, skipping a short section in favor of a decisive action.

Spotting the green apothecary’s bag

The first part of Todd’s questline involves recovering two Compendiums of Remedies from the Alchemical Commission. The pioneers are automatically brought back to Todd, then asked to find a component from a mara-stricken creature. They can acquire one after fighting a disguised disciple of Sanctus Medicus at the Alchemical Commission.

  • Acquire the quest from Todd in Central Starskiff Haven
  • Teleport to the Healers’ Market in the Alchemical Commission and talk to Yuluo near the Dragon Tree
  • Retrieve the unfortunate healer’s book from a tree near the marked stairs
  • Break the vase and take the Compendium of Remedies in a courtyard
  • Talk to Todd and then teleport to the Healers’ Market
  • Find and talk to the learned alchemist

After activating the mission by talking to Todd in Central Starskiff Haven, the Trailblazers should teleport to the Healer’s Market in the Alchemy Commission. They need to talk to the NPC, Yuluo, who can be found next to the Dragon Tree in the middle of the market.

Find the learned alchemist
