During the Poetic Genius Ingenium Adventure Mission in Honkai: Star Rail, you have the chance to obtain the Wordsmith or the Literary Novice Achievement.

By undertaking this Adventure Mission, you’ll receive generous rewards such as Stellar Jades, EXP, upgrading materials, and most importantly, the opportunity to secure the Wordsmith or Literary Novice Achievement.
