Finding the quest
To start the quest, teleport to the Narrows and then head to the library where you will find a Sinshade named Ema. Interact with her and at first, she’ll tell you to leave since she won’t allow anyone to borrow books from the library at this point. She will then explain that since it is her last day in Byakuyakoku, she’s stressed because she can’t bring all of the books to the surface. Even so, she at least wants to carry five of them with her. However, since the books she wants to bring aren’t in the library, she’s a bit stressed and that’s where you come in.
Since you are exploring Enkanomiya, Ema will give you the task of finding the five books. It wouldn’t be so hard if the game’s navigation didn’t give up on you immediately. But fear not, we’ve found the books and all you have to do is follow the guide below.
Before the Sun and Moon
To find the book, Before the Sun and Moon, you need to finish the world quest Antigonus. To do so, you’ll have to find it near the Dainichi Mikoshi. Thankfully, since there are no puzzles in this quest, as long as you follow the guide linked above, you should finish it without any worries.
The Serpent and Drakes of Tokoyokoku
This book is easy to find. All you have to do is teleport to Inazuma City and then head down to the Yae Publishing House. From there, interact with Kuroda and buy the book.
In the Light, Beneath the Shadow
To find the book, In the Light, Beneath the Shadow, teleport to the central waypoint in the Dainichi Mikoshi. Switch to Evernight mode and then head down south until you see a deactivated Ruin Guard in front of a wall along with explosive barrels. Hit the barrels and fight the Ruin Guard. Once that is done, a secret passage will be revealed.
Head on inside and hit the Triangular Mechanism. This will make one of the walls move. Now, go outside and head straight down south towards a Sun and Moon mechanism. Use it to switch to Whitenight and then head back to the puzzle room. Hit the next Triangular Mechanism and a room will be revealed inside which you’ll find an Exquisite Chest.
Go back to the Sun and Moon mechanism to switch to Evernight. Then go back to the secret room where you’ll find a Key Sigil on the wall. Activate it and a pattern will be revealed.
Note down the pattern and then head to the phase gate room in Serpent’s Heart. Go through the doors in the given pattern and a common chest will appear. Inside, you’ll find your book.
Hydrological Studies in Byakuyakoku
To find this book, you’ll have to first complete the world quest Date’s Challenge. This includes solving two puzzles created by the Sinshade named Date. Once you do so (follow the linked guide), you’ll get access to his secret room within which you’ll find the book.
Bathysmal Vishap Experimental Records
Bathysmal Vishap Experimental Records can be found in the Vishap Research Lab, an island that isn’t marked on the map. To get the book, you’ll have to finish the world quest Tricolour File which includes solving a puzzle and fighting a Bathysmal Vishap.
Returning the books
Once you have all the books, go back to the library and show them to Ema. She will ask you to return them to their shelves and when you do that, a picture frame will turn into a gate of sorts. When you pass through it, you’ll be able to collect the books from their shelves. You’ll also be able to get a Luxurious Chest in this part of the library as well as Key Sigil and a Seelie.
With this, the world quest, Collection of Dragons and Snakes will end.
For finishing this world quest, you’ll receive 20 Primogems, 25,000 Mora and you’ll unlock the Wonders of the World achievement If Tokoyo Ookami Knew of This…
