MiHoYo has announced the Lost Riches event which will be a big part of the rollout of update 1.2, and adds tons of new content. The new Genshin Impact Lost Riches event is kicking off soon. The event will run for most of the month, and pretty much any active player can take part. When does the event end? The gameplay portion will run from January 8, 2021 at 10 AM to January 18, 2021 at 4 AM. The deals in the in-game shop will run from January 8, 2021 at 10 AM to January 22, 2021 at 4 AM.
To take part, you need to have reached Adventure Rank 20 or above and have completed the quest in Prologue: Act I, “The Outlander Who Caught the Wind”. Once that’s done you’re ready to begin when the even does. Now, let’s talk about what to expect.
When you trigger the event by talking to the right NPC, you will get a special Treasure Book along with a special gadget called Treasure-Seeking Seelie, these are key to the event. The Mini Seelie: Dayflower, Mini Seelie: Rosé, or Mini Seelie: Curcuma will seemingly be given to players at random, which will offer a different gear choice for each player. You can also trade the event currency to get all three.
The Treasure-Seeking Seelie will guide you through various quest locations during the Genshin Impact Lost Riches event. You will have to follow the guide around and find Iron Coins around the game world. You can trade these in for Primogems and other rewards when you get enough.
Iron Coin Rewards
Here are each of the item bundles you can buy during the event:
- 100 Primogems – 80 Iron Coins
- 10x Hero’s Wit – 8 Iron Coins
- 20x Mystic Enhancement Core – 8 Iron Coins
- 10,000 Mora – 8 Iron Coins
- Mini Seelie – Dayflower, Rose, and Curcuma – 280 Iron Coins each
Lastly, don’t forget that the Lost Riches event only lasts until January 18. However, you can exchange for any iron coins you’ve amassed until January 22.
You may only exchange for a Mini Seelie companion after finding the treasure in all 14 locations, so get hunting.
