Aurum Alley’s Hustle And Bustle Event Mechanics

Within Aurum Alley’s Hustle and Bustle event, there will be several distinct types of gameplay for you to tackle.

Inventory Arrangement

In this part of the event, you’ll step into the role of an adept inventory manager, responsible for strategically arranging a variety of goods in shipments. Your objective is to optimize the placement of these goods in each shipment, maximizing value and thereby increasing your overall earnings.

Your main focus will be on the General Orders mini-game, which is your primary revenue stream for raising funds. Here, you follow customer requests, efficiently arranging items like blocks, vases, and materials. Many orders even allow extra space for unlisted items, offering you a chance to boost revenue further.

Strategy is key; a well-planned item layout ensures maximum profitability. If you find yourself stuck, a hint feature, activated by clicking on Mingxi’s face, provides a final arrangement image to guide you.

If you’re struggling, start with large items like boxes and desks as your foundation, then stack smaller items on top. Make use of mats; they can lay flat on boxes without disrupting your arrangement or taking up space. Sometimes, they may even open up new placement opportunities.

Logistics Planning

In this part of the event, your task is to create efficient routes to move goods from newly partnered stores to the dock. As you bring more local businesses on board, you’ll be challenged to come up with increasingly creative routes. Furthermore, special scoring thresholds are outlined, and reaching these grants you rewards and additional furnishings for you to use for General Orders and Custom Orders.

You may also come across special boost zones on the map, which can help facilitate reaching the scoring thresholds. By using a clever mix of these boost zones and some smart planning, you’ll be able to optimize your routes like a true professional.

Be strategic with special boost zones; they’re valuable but not always needed for top scores. Don’t assume every boost zone must be used; assess whether changing your route to acquire a boost will improve your performance.

Store Index

Located within the event’s user interface, the Store Index is your go-to hub for tracking and understanding your partnerships with local businesses in Aurum Alley. Each merchant listing provides a snippet of lore, giving you a glimpse into their role and offerings within the game world.

By checking the Store Index, you can also accumulate Prosperity Certificates, which can be used for unlocking rewards in the Guild Benefits tab.

Guild Benefits

Guild Benefits is a reward system accessible from the event menu in Honkai: Star Rail’s Aurum Alley Hustle and Bustle Event. Earn Prosperity Tickets through successful gameplay and partnerships with local businesses, and submit them here to unlock lucrative in-game rewards such as Stellar Jades, Tracks of Destiny, Supplies Material Boxes containing Trace Materials, and even a Star Rail Pass, to name a few.

Access this feature via the left-hand menu, either when speaking to Mingxi or through the Events Tab.

While some event-specific rewards will expire, all Guild Benefits rewards are permanent and can be accessed indefinitely.

Streetside Events

During the event, keep an eye out for specially marked Cycranes, or characters with a Cycrane icon above them. These are Streetside Events, in which you will perform various duties to assist the locals, like solving puzzles or fighting off Cloud Knights.

They will unlock valuable score-boosting buffs for you in Logistics Planning upon completion. If you’re falling short of a perfect score, these interactions offer the extra buffs needed to tip the scales in your favor.

Aurum Alley Debates

For those looking to tackle more than logistics in Aurum Alley, the event features an engaging Debate Mode. In this mode, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in dynamic conversations with various NPCs, each designed to test your deductive reasoning as you collect essential pieces of evidence and key clues.

During this game mode, players will have two options: “Continue Questioning” to dig deeper or “Present Evidence” to make a key point. Success in these Debates hinges on strategic timing and presenting the right evidence at the right time.

For those struggling, here’s how you can come out on top every time:

The old Aurum Alley achieved a commercial miracle that has not yet been replicated. It did so by following my way of doing things.

”Best night market on the Luofu”? With the IPC’s funding pouring in, hundreds of commercial centers will sprout. Why would people come to Aurum Alley when they have so many other options? Nobody cares about that title anymore.
