During the event you will have to adjust 3 settings. Depending on the current customer cycle, distribute resources in such a way that the indicators reach the target values. In this case, the funds will increase.

The indicators can be corrected with the help of using available recourses.

If the funds invested in the direction exceed the recommended minimum, the player will continue to receive additional revenue.

After a certain number of cycles have been completed, it becomes possible to use shop stratagems. A description of their effects is presented in the “Shop stratagems” menu.

Charity and Creativity

After a certain number of Customer Flow Cycles, you will open Shop Assistants. You can choose the bonus you will provide to your friends between increasing one of Holistic Service, Product Quality or Business Efficiency by 30%. Once unlocked, you can choose between three random friends. Note: you have to wait for two Customer Flow Cycles before hiring any assistant in the same store, not just the same one.

As the shop develops, various useful functions will become available. Travelers can also face Emergencies and Unexpected Situations. After completing certain conditions there is a possibility of joining the owners of other shops, this will allow you to manage 3 shops at once.

In the Events Overview choose «Of Ballads and Brews», then choose «Event Details» and open «Charity and Creativity». Unlock the quest and head to Springvale and find Bernhard.

Charity and Creativity

Bernhard wants you to help him to rescue the charity event and to raise funds for disadvantaged children and elderly citizens. However, before opening a store it is necessary to collect the basic currency.


First of all, you need to order 50 crates of Fruits of the Festival using Mora from Bernhard. We recommend offering around 13,000 Mora.


After getting the receipt you need to check out the situation in other shops. On his way Traveler will meet Barbara who will want to help with shop promotion. Barbara promises to think about it a little more and talk to some other people about their marketing experience. After the dialogue the main menu of the event will open.


Before securing funds, depending on how the barter with Georg went, the basic currency may be different. If you agree on an amount from 2700-3000, then at the start there will be 4000+ funds.

Next, in the guide, we will show all the ways to receive funds so, if necessary, you can choose your own approach based on hints.

Before opening the shop, you need to secure enough funds using two methods:

  • By selling ingredients from your inventory to wine merchants
  • By completing purchase requests

The main goal is to receive basic currency in the amount of 32,000 of The Fairbrew Jelly.


To begin with, it is recommended to complete purchase requests, since later you can get the remaining amount of currency by selling ingredients.

Talk to Quqing and find out that she would like to order 65 cases of Mintberries in The Cat`s Tail Tavern. She also adds that she had gathered Fairbrew Jelly in advance, so there is no point in saving.

Go to the far side of the fair and find Dianу. In the barter, offer a price starting from 14,000.

If you choose the wrong option all the time, the transaction will still take place, but the final revenue will be 1,000 less.

Go back to the merchant from Liyue and inform her that the drinks have been ordered. As a reward, you can get 8,000 funds.

The total revenue for both orders will be 16,000.


Next are calculations of the total amount of The Fairbrew Jelly for all the ingredients and separately. You can sell all the resources to get more revenue, or exclusively to get a minimum currency. However, we recommend, if possible, selling all the ingredients so that there is an optimal amount to start with.

The first buyers of the shop “Favonian Goodies” are Mona and Fischl. The astrologer buys some products according to the recommendations from Paimon to prepare a treat for Fischl. After the girls leave, talk to the Knight of Favonius to start running your own shop.


Depending on the current amount of funds, allocate resources among 3 options:

  • Product Quality
  • Business Efficiency
  • Holistic Service

A total of 10 Customer Flow Cycles are available, during which the player will have to earn 80,000 funds to collect all the possible rewards.

Be careful in the spreading of resources. If you do not have time to make full revenue before the 10th level, when you try to enter the shop again, the inscription will appear: “There is no trading time left at this stage.” This means that it will not be possible to continue now, and a second attempt will appear only for the next stage in a few days.
