How to complete Rare Love Part 1 Quest in Hongkai Star Rail?
After accepting the quest, visit Clara at Svarog Base in the Robort Settlement Area and ask her about the problem. She will tell you how a thief started stealing machine parts in their area, which the wanderers worked hard on. The thief was not discovered until a patrol passed by.
You will be tasked with investigating the situation in the vagrant camp. Interrogate the witness to find out that the thief’s weapon was metal.
Continue along the path and look for more clues in the marked area, which will lead you to a rogue automaton spider. To prevent it from running away, engage in battle with the robot. It should be easy to take him out with any Wind or Lightning character on the Hongkai Star Rail.
The automaton Spidey stops working and Clara decides to repair it. Meanwhile, you’ll be teleported to Svarog’s mansion to listen to their conversation about how to fix the robot.
Now, take the elevator to the Machine Graveyard and talk to the robot named Toby. This will lead you to the body of an automaton direwolf, then an automaton beetle, where you’ll learn about both of their features.
After picking up the second machine, deliver it to Clara in Svarog’s base. Once the repair is complete, it will show signs of trouble, which will fade after you defeat it in battle, ending the companion quest.
