Ningguang: The Shrewd Tianquan of the Liyue Qixing

Genshin Impact's hangout events are a fun way to get to know your characters better, like a dating sim with different routes based on your choices.

Ningguang is a 4-star Geo character from Liyue who wields a catalyst in battle. She is the Tianquan of the Liyue Qixing, a powerful member of the council that governs Liyue's trade. She is also the wealthiest woman in Teyvat.

Ningguang's influence reaches as far as her massive floating palace, the Jade Chamber, casts its shadow from the sky. When Ningguang shreds her notes and casts them out the window of the Jade Chamber, the people below scramble to fetch a piece of paper snow, aiming to hold a fraction of her business acumen. Anything Ningguang has touched can fetch a high price at auction, and people will spend millions to have dinner with her so they can seek her advice on new ventures. She guides the ebb and flow of Liyue's commerce with an expert hand and a sharp tongue.

Ningguang is thought to be a cold and calculating businesswoman, but she does have a softer side and a humble past. The children of Liyue Harbor look up to her like an older sister, and she is willing to sacrifice her most prized possessions if it means it will save the city where her fortune was built. Reciprocity, the act of giving back, is one of Ningguang's core values. She remembers what it was like to be poor, selling her family's wares along Yaoguang Shoal as a young girl, and catching fish when the profits weren't enough to feed everyone. Her rise to power was long and difficult, but Ningguang was hungry enough to fight for it, and she was clever enough to pick the right targets. Nowadays, Ningguang's favorite battles are over a game of Liyue Millenial, her own variant of chess, but she's still up for an adventure every now and then.

Lady Ningguang has invited you to the Jade Chamber to help her out for a day. What will you learn and what will you stand to gain? It all depends on your choices in this hangout event!

Be it simple price negotiation or a full-blown trade war, momentum and bargaining chips are but minor factors. To win, you need to be first to find out what cards your opponent is holding.
