Genshin Impact is known for its intricate quests and captivating storyline. Among its myriad of adventures, the Aranyaka questline stands out for its complexity and hidden challenges. One such challenge within this questline involves uncovering the bad guys hiding in Vimara Village, a task that has left many players scratching their heads. In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to unveil the culprits and successfully complete the Woodland Encounter Chapter in Genshin Impact.

The Aranyaka Quest and the Road to Vimara Village

Before you can embark on the journey to expose the bad guys in Vimara Village, there are some prerequisites to fulfill. You must have already saved Rana in the Dream Nursery Chapter. While you don't need to complete Chapters 3, 4, and 5, it's essential to finish Chapter 2, "Dream Nursery," which can be quite lengthy. You can check your progress by looking for a green checkmark on the number in the Aranayka gadget.

The Investigation Begins

  1. Locate Alphonso: Your quest begins when you teleport to Vimara Village and head south until you encounter Alphonso in front of his house. When you engage in conversation with him, you'll be faced with multiple dialogue choices. To navigate this successfully, choose the responses:

    • Sudabeh

    • Kavus

Note: Your choices here will not affect the storyline's outcome; they merely determine the flow of the conversation.

  1. The Interrogation: After the initial conversation, you'll be moved to another location to continue the interrogation. At this point, you have two options:

    • Allow Alphonso to leave the village without a confrontation.

    • Engage in a battle against Alphonso.

  2. If you choose to let Alphonso go, you'll need to teleport to the Statue of the Seven in Old Vanarana and proceed east until you find an item on the ground, surrounded by Rifthound Whelps. Investigate the item to reveal a note and complete the Woodland Encounter Chapter.

  3. The Conclusion: Regardless of your choice in the previous step, the Woodland Encounter Chapter will be completed once you check the note in Old Vanarana. Look for a green checkmark in the Aranayka gadget to confirm your progress.

The Rewards

While the Aranyaka questline in Genshin Impact may appear daunting, the effort is rewarded with treasure chests and Primogems at each step. These valuable rewards make discovering the bad guys in Vimara Village and completing the Woodland Encounter Chapter a worthwhile endeavor for dedicated players.
