Genshin Impact Arataki Itto story quest guide: Taurus Iracundus Act 1 – Rise Up, Golden Soul
To get started with Taurus Iracundus Act 1 in Genshin Impact, just go to the Adventurer’s Guild in Inazuma City and talk to Katheryne. Three NPCs will be marked in the city, so speak to them to learn more about the gang leader.
There’s a nice cinematic here telling you about the legend of the onis. The blue oni sacrificed his own needs just so the red oni (Itto’s ancestor) could be part of human society.
Next, make your way north of the Formation Estate domain in Yashiori Island and follow the tracks. You’ll spot Arataki Itto in a clearing.
Press left-click to crouch and hold “E” to throw beans at him. This will lead to a cutscene. After that, just follow the marked locations on the minimap until you can collect an Onikabuto.
Eventually, you’ll go to Nazuchi Beach. You’ll find some Nobushi samurai bandits here. Itto will notice a blue oni descendant named Takuya, who then runs off.
The Tenryou Commission guards will arrive, too. You can control Itto here as a trial character, so you can test his abilities against the soldiers. When you’re done with the fight, the Arataki Gang members will allow you to escape.
Follow the footprints on the ground until you reach a cave. This mini-domain is the bandit hideout. Just follow the corridors and markers, defeating foes and activating switches. Eventually, you’ll activate a switch that raises the bridge even higher. You can glide to reach that.
Note: Even if you already own Itto, you don’t need to add him to your active party when you enter the domain. This allows him to act as a fifth character.
Once you reach the top floor, you’ll battle several souped-up Nobushi. After eliminating them, Takuya will have a change of heart and decide to sacrifice himself. Itto’s having none of that, and he opts to rescue him. Don’t worry since they’re both safe.
You can revisit the grandma north of Formation Estate to see the closing cinematic. This completes Act 1 of Arataki Itto’s story quest in Genshin Impact.
