This is the tricky part of Mysterious Islands: Journey to Unknown quest. After talking to Jean, players are asked to meet Jean, Barbara, Klee and Venti at Mondstadt square in-between 12:00 to 18:00 of the next day.

If your current time is less than 12:00 then setting the clock between 12:00 to 18:00 will not let you progress the quest. Since you are asked to meet the next day, you have to fast forward to next day by using in-game clock from Paimon’s Menu.

The devices that the quest talks about is nothing but the portable teleport waypoints scattered on three islands. Once you have lighted them up by interacting with them, you have to return to the first Island where Dvalin left you, “the Pudding Isle“.

8. Go to high ground to ascertain the situation
