Question about Chests

15 posts in this topic

So I've already started the game and been playing for awhile, I saw no missables so I didn't read into the trophies much.

 

However I just noticed the chest trophies and map tracking (done by hand). What I want to ask is... Can I ignore the map and still get this done with relative ease (and time of course)? I know the compass got introduced but I'm unsure how helpful it is. Like if I get down to only needing a handful more chests am I still going to be slamming my head against the wall even with the compass?

 

Thank you!

The chests aren't a problem, even without tracking, unless you despise exploring.

 

There are hundreds of extras in the two main areas. Dragonspine is different, as it is much smaller, but again I had no issues.

I have no issues exploring, I think my concern is running into a situation where I'm spending like an hour looking for that one chest I need and losing my mind over it.

 

But your post makes it seem like that won't be the case(?).

No, you'll be fine. I never used the treasure compass. I know someone who did though and I think it helped him quite a bit as he was not a huge fan of the exploration.

Common chests respawn over time, and there are some good chest farming routes. You should get the chests naturally, but if somehow you dont, you can just use one of those respawning chest routes to track down your final few.

They don't respawn.

Yeah that's the concerning part. But if you got it done without using a map, or even the compass... Then it can't be that bad. I appreciate your responses!

They definitely do, the basic brown ones. I’ve seen chests appear in spots there weren’t any before and the new ones never give any primogems - normally a common chest gives 2 each, but these new ones always give 0. It’s most noticable on the mountain in Litue full of Cor Lapis - there are giant orange crystals there that can sometimes spawn a chest when you break them, and those respawn. It’s not the same crystal each time, and sometimes its none at all, but I’ve definitely obtained chests by breaking crystals I’d already broken beforehand.

 

common are the only type that respawn though, and not in the exact same spots.

New chests will appear in the world as you level up in AR, I believe. It was hotly debated on launch because MiHoYo never really clarified anything. It has been proven, chests absolutely do not respawn after you have opened them.

 

Those giant Cor Lapis' do occasionally contain chests, but there is a limited number that spawn in them. If you go there every day you will eventually notice that you will stop getting them.

I was under the impression they do respawn, ive had chests in the same location, which i know you get more each world tier, but if a chest doesnt give primo gems is a respawn, there are just hundreds of spawn locations like a halo 3 forge map

You will be fine, I finished the entire area without ever using the map - and still had about 80 chests that I've missed (some in plain sight). If you take your time and enjoy the game - you will most likely get all of them, and if not, then you will be really close and will be able to clean up the rest via a region compass.

That being said, I did start using the map for another region...needless to say, the whole experience is tainted by having to constantly mark things manually. No map is the way.

I played this game since launch and did have trouble with both chest trophies. I was like 150 away from Liyue and 100 off from Monstadt for a long time. Finally sat down and grinded it out using the compass. Was quite the pain.

It's hard to say if using a map is key or not, since you're talking about hundreds and hundreds of chests. Marking them all off would be such a grind, but perhaps long term it would save you time as you'd never have to use that blasted compass with it's terrible 30 second cool down.

Homestly its not a huge deal. Chest are everywhere. I never use a map for them. However i do use the treassure compass gadget. If you zoom out all the way on the map it will say how much % you've explored in specific regions of the nation. If you simply go to one with a low%, look around properly and use your compass you will have no issue. There is no situation in which you are looking over an hour for 1 chest. I honestly think i never looked over 5 minutes for a single chest myself. And even that barely happens. This is while using the compass though. I would say doing thse trophies with no compass, even with a map is a chore.but the compasses are easy to get and you only need to craft them once so i would say you are fine.

As a warning- Inazuma is different. The chests there are mostly tied to puzzles , etc. while the other two areas are not
