Chests in Genshin Impact are objects that can be found around the world of Teyvat and as rewards for completing certain domains.

Opening chests usually rewards the player with Primogems, Adventure EXP, Sigils, Mora, and a random assortment of Weapons, Artifacts, and Character EXP Materials. There are also Achievements that are granted upon opening a certain number of chests within a region.

Treasure Compass gadgets can be used to search for chests within their respective regions, with some exceptions. (For example, Anemo Treasure Compasses cannot be used within the Dragonspine region.) The blueprints for these gadgets are obtained as a reward for reaching Reputation level 6 in Mondstadt and Liyue and level 9 in Inazuma.

Types of Chests

There are five types of chests: Common, Exquisite, Precious, Luxurious and Remarkable.

They can reward various items, including Primogem Primogems, Adventure EXP Adventure EXP, Mora Mora, Anemo Sigil Sigils, Character EXP Materials, Weapon Enhancement Materials, Weapons, and Artifacts. For more information, see the Chest Rewards section.

Additionally, some chests are hidden and have to be dug up from the ground. These are marked with either a shovel or some other sign. Treasure Hoarders are also an indicator of a hidden chest. When walking near their location, the option to "Dig" will appear, and then the chest will appear.

Some chests are encased in Dendro Vines, which have to be burned with Pyro to access. Others are encased in rocks, which have to be destroyed (e.g. via Claymore, Geo, or Plunging Attacks) to access.

The following notable chests have at least one fixed reward.

Additional Information

  • Certain daily commissions will despawn chests. The chests will then spawn back when re-exploring the area.[1]
  • All chests are present in Teyvat the moment the game starts.
  • Certain chests will disappear and reappear on certain days.
  • Some common chests are covered in rock or thorns, which require Heavy attacks (from Claymore hits, Geo attacks or explosive abilities) and Pyro attacks respectively to become accessible.

Discovering Hidden Chests

While many chests are exposed, and can be located through the usage of a Treasure Compass, certain chests will be hidden from the player and must be revealed through various methods.

  • Guiding Seelie
  • Killing monsters
  • Time Trials and challenges
  • Popping floating Anemo Slimes
  • Popping Bloatty Floatties
  • Standing on specific spots
  • Digging at specific spots (often marked with a shovel or a sign)
  • Picking up Carrots from the ground in Mondstadt
  • Lighting torches, campfires, etc.
  • Activating Windmill Mechanisms and Elemental Monuments
  • Creating Geo constructs in certain locations and on top of Pressure Plates
  • Destroying piled rock monuments
  • Destroying pillars of rocks in Liyue
  • Using Pyro or Anemo to clear away piles of dirt (leaves)/Dendro elements
  • Defeating disguised Whopperflowers
  • The 10 large ambers found on Mt. Hulao can all spawn 1 chest each. They appear to spawn randomly, so players must return to the location once the ambers reset.

Achievements Counters

Within the game's achievements, some of them contain information on the amount of chests opened by region. The highest known numbers for those achievements are: 523 in Mondstadt, 1134 in Liyue, 234 in Dragonspine, 731 in Inazuma, 185 in Enkanomiya and 248 in The Chasm/The Chasm: Underground Mines. The chests counted on the counters are only those found in the open world in Teyvat. Chests that can be found in temporary quest locations, such as the Cathedral in Venti's New Plan, or in Domains are not counted for the chest opening Achievements.

Bugs

Over the course of updates, many bugs were found and fixed regarding chest counters:

  • Before the 1.1 update, some chests encrusted with ice, rock or vines did not count towards the counters. Those who collected chests at this time have affected Liyue counters, with values ​​between 1055/1117 (excluding chest values ​​obtained from events).
  • Before the 1.2 Update, some chests were randomly counted in both regions, Mondstadt and Liyue, causing an inconsistency in the count between the values ​​discovered by the players. This happened between the Bishui Plain and Windwail Highland regions. Whoever collected all the chests at this time have their counters between 518/1117 and 521/1114 (excluding chest values ​​obtained from events). It is not possible to get the maximum values ​​of chests in Mondstadt and Liyue counters at the same time due to this bug.
  • There are still some chests from one region that count for another (Liyue chests that count for Mondstadt), And some chests that don't count for any region. However, doing all chests routes will guarantee the current count of exploration chests values.

Current Count

Today the counters have their respective values ​​for each region:[2]

HoYoLAB Chests

It is possible to track the amount of Chests collected during the game through HoYoverse's official forum: HoYoLAB. These are the highest values of each type of chests found until this moment. 3,671 unique Chests counted to HoYoverse's official forum.

Type Luxurious Chest Precious Chest Exquisite Chest Common Chest Remarkable
Amount 139 369 1318 1799 46

It is important to remember that:

  • Chest count in the forum includes all Chests in the game, be they from open world Teyvat, from World Quests, Domains and limited duration Events.
  • The Chests of some domains cannot be collected after the quest that grants access to this domain is completed.
  • There are some profiles with values above 139 Luxurious Chests. This is due to a bug in Bennett's hangout mission, where you can repeat the mission as many times as you like and the counter will count each time you open the Luxurious Chest. (This bug is already fixed and the Luxurious Chest no longer counts in HoYoLAB.)[12]

Time Limited Chests

Some chests are available for a certain time limit within the game. After this time, they could no longer be collected. These chests counted towards HoYoLAB records in its Summary section.

Investigation Points

Investigation points can be found throughout villages, Treasure Hoarder encampments, and in other places throughout the world attached to objects such as barrels or abandoned carts.

They drop low value items, including a small amount of Mora Mora and relevant items (for example, barrels often drop Cooking Ingredients, while Treasure Hoarder caches drop low-value Artifacts). Unlike chests, investigation points will respawn, tied to the server reset time.

While not technically chests, these investigation points do trigger the healing effect of the Adventurer Artifact Set, and therefore bear mention here.
