    The story of guizhong and madame Ping is actually a reference to a Chinese legend: Buoya and Ziqi. In ancient China, the two were good friends. Buoya was good at playing the guzheng, and Ziqi was good at listening the sound of guzheng. When Buoya played the guzheng while thinking about mountains, Ziqi felt the majestic mountains from the sound of music; when Buoya played the guzheng thinking about flowing water, Ziqi felt the vast rivers. After Ziqi's death, Buoya never played the guzheng again, because he knew that no one could understand his music like Ziqi.
    This is a sad story, and I am happy that mihoyo has integrated such an ancient Chinese legend into the game, it is really connotative

    Poor Ping, I always thought she chose the guise of an elderly lady because she was weary and tried of fighting, but it's sad knowing now that she continues to mourn the death of her dear friend.

    We finally got to see Guizhong`s face!!!. Madame Ping`s past is so fitting and touching, Guizhong meant soooo much to her (rival and best buddy). What I love the most is that most of the fanbase got Guizhong`s character wrong, she wasnt some delicate flower but a badass inventor. She was fierce and stubborn, but also kind and friendly. RIP Guizhong, she is missed.

    Madame Ping and Guizhong being close friends really makes you realize why Madame Ping is such a positive person.
    Zhongli was corroded by time. Pain and suffering he saw and maybe even did gave him wisdom.
    Cloud Retainer was most likely hardy and stubborn, but she too became corroded over time, becoming more like stone, not revealing how she feels to anyone.
    Madame Ping always tried to see the beauty in things and loved her ways. But over time she realized everything is beautiful in its own right. Her wisdom is that she learned to cherish every moment.

      @W.T. Kemp He might be affected by SOMETHING akin to Erosion, but as far as we know his memory of the past is perfect - and that's nearly 6,000 years worth of time, whereas Azhdaha began to erode rather quickly post Archon war

      It's actually implied that Morax isn't affected by Erosion, but rather is running out of "memory space" in his mind. Out of almost all the gods, he is the oldest known entity we've actually interacted with in game aside from Azhdaha, who is a Vishap.

      Spirits, Adepti, Youkai and Aranara.
      TBH among the lore, Aranara seems to be the most abundant in the current regions.
      I'd wager there are more Youkais than Adepti: There are just more "godly" adepti, because the Alpha Adepti being Rex Lapis was literally endowing them with power and purpose (through contracts). This can be seen in the same manner as the Raijin youkai, Ei's companion, the Kitsune youkai, Yae has quite some power as well ( you can literally see she only really uses her catalyst and vision when using burst)
      You cansee that "normal" adepti are no different than most youkais: Yanfei is a dragon adepti - who isn't contracted to Rex Lapis- aside from minor adeptal arts, uses a vision for combat. and is almost no different from the youkais: Oni Itto, Tengou: Sara or Bake-Tanukis.
      But it seems spirits are the least active with only Venti and the Springvale fairy are the only confirmed sightings.

      @diluc simp Yes I'm not objective and I am admitedly bias because I hate how butchered Ei's character is to the core where her whole character had been wrapped into "Bohoo, woe is me, pity me I cant take this anymore"
      Again Zhongli did that killing and sealing because of the Archon aar circumstances, and saying that argument doesn't even apply to him too. Ei was the killing machine of her sister too, and the other archons had obviously done the same thing in one or more case.
      And as what others had been continously saying over the years, Zhongli did not sacrifice Liyue to test them, they put them in a test. Albeit an extreme test to see how capable the people of Liyue are and was watching in the sidelines and ready to interfere if things go awry.
      The most frustrating thing about Ei's character is they made her act and react like a God who had been living for a few years. Home girl is probably older than Venti and the way she dealt with her nation and her issues are just questionable.

      @Going East you just lack the ability to be objective. I love both of the characters and don't see that as a bad thing. They both have their flaws. And Zhongli was described to have a heart of stone and he used to kill gods. Gods who probably had their own people who needed those gods. Ei wasn't having a tantrum. She was grieving all her friends and sister. Don't be immature. Not to mention Zhongli risked Liyue drowning to see if they're capable of living without Rex Lapis

    As a Zhongli simp and a Guizhong stan, I am so, so happy that we have FINALLY seen Guizhong and gotten to know a little about what she was like. Getting news that this cutscene existed yesterday made my day, and I was super excited to watch it in-game. It's obvious that Guizhong was dearly beloved by all the adepti, especially Madame Ping and Zhongli. I will continue to make regular visits to her flower overlooking the harbor in her honor. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into the story of the Liyue adepti, it's one of my favorites in the whole game.

      @Sundalo Sketch Hey there! Sorry for the late reply! The glaze lily is close to the Guizhong Ballista. Go to the teleport waypoint just north of Mt. Tianheng, then make your way south until you reach what looks like a broken land bridge. There’s a ledge that overlooks the harbor, and growing on it is a single glaze lily. I dunno if it’s canonically related to Guizhong…but it’s placement makes it seem likely. I hope you can find it!

    I've been eager to see Guizhong in game for forever, and SHE'S HEREEEEE!! She's so stinkin' cute, and she's the bubbly and bratty girl I always envisioned her to be, too! 😭💙💙 And, I also LOVE all the little details in her design: how her sleeves look like there's stardust inside, and the tails of her dress disintegrate into dust; how her hair clip looks like a repurposed mechanical part, like a clock hand, and how some of the details in her outfit resemble Zhongli's. 🥺💙💙 Also, the alternate design's for Cloud Retainer, Madame Ping, and Zhongli!!! THEY ALL LOOK SO. DAMN. GOOD!! 😍😍😍
    Designs aside though, the illustrations and animations were absolutely stunning, and the story was so bittersweet. 🥺💙 You can tell how loved Guizhong was by everyone, and how hard her loss hit them all. 💔
    I wonder if they'll ever tell her story from Zhongli's perspective, though! Besides animating their meeting and their time together, I'm REALLY curious what the yaksha were doing at the end, when she died??? Containing the destruction her death would've caused??? 🤔 How, exactly, did she even die???
    Anyhow, Genshin just keeps getting better and better, and I'm really excited to see what they have in store for us next! 😆💙💙
    P.S. Mihoyo, I'm begging you to PLEASE make Zhongli's old archon attire an option to wear in-game. Consider it promotion for the anime!! 😭🙏

    There's inconsistent about this scene and the Memory of Dust story, although it can be explained in simple way.
    Zhongli was there indeed. Yes he's late but he still there at Guizhong last moment. She finally give him the memory of dust along with some of her last words. At this time, Zhongli probably also summoned the 4 General Yakshas so they can seal Guizhong's archon residue (I mean, that is Yakshas job after all), while the Yakshas seal it, Cloud Retainer and Streetward Rambler arrived at the scene, only saw her lifeless body.
    Honestly, we need more of Zhongli and Guizhong story...

      @Silverfan96 It's not really retconning it, it's just presenting it from a different perspective. Morax and Guizhong were clearly immensely important to each other, we know that from the Memory of Dust and the fact that they were the two founders of the Guili Assembly. Morax was the one who witnessed her final moments, all the others came too late.
      But this event isn't about Morax, it's about Ping. So the story we're told is presented from the angle of her friendship and mourning.

      This was cloud retainer’s perspective of guizhong and rambler’s history and relationship, which was likely why rex lapis is always blank-faced.

Rex lapis was probably already there when cloud retainer and mdm ping arrived.

I was not expecting a lore drop about the adepti and I was not expecting Guizhong to be the most adorable girl i've ever seen in genshin. It actually made me extra sad that we'll never get to meet her after hearing her story and how close she was with madame ping and how she was the friend that brought all the adepti together. Also madame ping and cloud retainers human form are so pretty, hope we see them in game. I guess the Xiao venti thing is happening in the last part of the quest. Can't wait. What a twist!

      @Ian She wanted to take the form of an old woman but adepti don't age that way. If she had the motivation to become active again or take up the spear I could easily see her choosing to change back. After all, it isn't like even the Adepti can't change their minds. Hell, we have had literal gods change their minds. Saying Madam Ping never would is like saying Ei never should have or Xiao should have never changed his mindset after the events in the depths of the Chasm. It is quite possible they will never make her playable or even give her a youthful model in game but at the same time, they very easily have left themselves the freedom to do so if Hoyoverse decides to. Saying she won't be playable is about as baseless as saying she will be. It could go either way.

      @tomato ganyu demon well I never said Guili is cannon just stated why ppl supported it so immensely so. Let's face it. Mihoyo rarely makes straight ships even with implications. That's why u see alot of Gay shippers not in this game but Honkai and others as well. But Genshin tends to be a bit chill and much larger in mainstream. And Homos are still a minority of the entire populace so they just can't risk with making strong implications afterall they r a Chinese company where Homophobia is quite at large. Maybe that's why they might give a bit more bread crumbs on straighter side of things cause after all they are the majority of the populace but as I said before they will never make any ships cannon. But I'm tired of these ppl fighting over these things. Just as straight shippers got to acknowledge Gay shippers and not hate on them for no reason cause who the fuk cares who ships who. But gay shippers also got to acknowledge Genshin is immensely large compared to their other games where Gay ships dominate quite explicitly but not here. So either of them can't go calling each other out. Just my two cents.

      @tomato ganyu demon yeah, people do. Especially on twitter, mostly those who don't like straight ships. And it's true there's homophobia in this fandom. But tbh, there's people who hate ships just because they're gay/lesbian and there's people who hate ships just because they're straight. Both are weird and immature and I hate all the discourse. And I can't stand the homophobia. But in this case, I think Guili would be popular and accepted no matter what the genders. They have so much content and not many characters have that kind of connection

      Actually, Zhongli's name 钟离 is a rare Chinese dual surname. It mostly appears in some Chinese novels (martial arts novels etc). People don't usually use these characters separately when it comes to naming someone since it's a surname. But to answer your question, yes, the Mandarin 钟 means 'bell' in Chinese and 离 means 'parting', 'separate'. In conclusion, his name can be perceived as 'the chime of parting'.

      @Johannes Eure it was an extremely early leak, long before Shenhe came out, a bunch of character models got leaked, Hu Tao, Rosaria, Yunjin, Sayu, Yaoyao, Mimi (Kokomi), and lastly Shenhe, back then Shenhe had a fairly different design, and was said to be a claymore user, and people were speculating that Shenhe was actually Cloud Retainer in human form because of the similar aesthetic between the two, but after a while, Shenhe completely disappeared from that list of characters, allegedly she was way too similar to Chongyun in playstyle, and many believed the character was scrapped altogether
      So eventually one by one, each character on the list came out, Mimi was completely redesigned into Kokomi, which some people today consider a tragic loss because they preferred the old design, but then out of nowhere, Hoyoverse suddenly officially revealed Shenhe as the next upcoming character along with Yunjin, turns out she wasn't scrapped like people thought, but she did go through a slight redesign and was shifted to be a polearm user instead of claymore, even after her official reveal though, the theory that she was Cloud Retainer persisted until later trailers eventually revealed their master and disciple relationship

    Not gonna lie this is probably my favorite animated story. Especially since it gives so much insight onto so many things. Besides characters and narrative this provides so much introspective into life, music and rememberance.

    This cutscene was so good! Now I'm hoping that the anime will follow these characters and tell this story somewhat.

    One of the best character background story in the game so far. This years' lantern rite really invoked the baby within me. Still can't believe this game is free.

      @Chris if they stop releasing characters. They will loose income interest from the player base. It is impossible

      @FunPlayer 05 True, you don’t need every character, nor do you in all probability even care for getting every character. I simply stated that 99.9% of players that are FTP have absolutely no chance of getting every character in the game, much less constellations.

    1:43 Can we please talk about how the 5 general Yakshas are there in the scene where Guizhong was turned to dust? In what looks like sealing arrays??? That means that Xiao has prob met and known her. And prob ended having to suppress her karma like the rest of the corrupted gods. Also, doing some quick research, Liyue was established after Guili Assembly was overrun, killing Guizhong. This was about 3700 years ago according to Ganyu and Geo Archon himself. Xiao is often said to be over 2000 years old on the web, but can we take this as confirmation that he is more than 3700 years old? And Zhongli calls him young 😅
