Three locations will be provided in Liyue Harbor where you have to buy up all the Cor Lapis to stop Gentry Maocai.
One of them is Ivanovich near the dock.
Another is Bolai who is one floor below Ivanovich.
The last person is Changshun who is located near the antique shop.
Once you’re done with Liyue Harbor, go to the Chasm to buy up the unsold Cor Lapis.

After you’re done, go back to Chang the Ninth in Qingce Village.

Justice Is Its Own Reward
We now move to the last sub-quest.
