How do I take part in the Genshin Impact Lost Riches event?

Unfortunately, you need to be at adventure level 30 to take part in the Lost Riches event that allows you to uncover the special treasures. Upon completing the ritou escape plan quest, you can start the Lost Riches event, doing so gives you a Genshin Impact Mini Seelie – a fairy-type creature – that leads you to different lost items, including the special treasures.

Where is the first Genshin Impact special treasure?

The first special treasure is waiting for you on Narukami Island, or, more specifically, Araumi – check out our Genshin Impact Araumi guide for more information on the area, including how to solve various puzzles.

Once in the area, follow a Seelie as it leads you to the location of the first special treasure. Upon arriving there, you need to solve a puzzle. Fortunately, it isn’t taxing and is fairly straightforward to solve – despite being slightly different for each player. There are some tablets on the ground that need highlighting. However, this must be done in a certain order – keep an eye out for some clues if you find yourself struggling.

More specifically, head to the clues section of your handbook and look at the map. This will show you blue squares corresponding to the tablets on the floor. Now all you need to do is follow the order on the map to light them up in the correct order.

Where is Genshin Impact special treasure 2?

To find the second special treasure, you must travel to Fort Mumei, a sub-area just off the coast from Yashiori Island. When you arrive, head towards the ruins, this is where the second special treasure is waiting for you. Of course, there’s a puzzle to complete before it can be yours. However, it’s the same process as the previous treasure, simply light up the slabs in a specific order.

Remember, there are clues nearby if you’re struggling, and visiting the clues section of your handbook is also a saving grace when in a tough spot.
