Who Wields the Wild Wind?
Greetings Travelers! Today we’re going to be looking at a guide for the small sidequest called “Who Wields the Wild Wind?”, a short but sweet quest with a wonderful little gift at the end. So let’s get going!
To start the quest, you’ll need to head over to the north-eastern-most cluster of islands.
First, you’ll notice a chest with a red shield over it, not too unlike the Violent Wind Barriers you might’ve seen for the last Act’s challenge. Much like before, you’ll need to be finding some Samachurls to dispose of before the barrier drops. There’ll be three in total, each one perched high above on the nearby mountains. You only need to climb one in its entirety as the other two are connected via wooden bridges. That said, the easiest to climb for myself was the one to the northeast, as there are vines that can help you climb up.
Once at the top, you’ll need to get to the center to prompt a Hydro Samachurl and two Hydro Slimes to spawn in.
Deal with them. Then you’ll need to then defeat a spawning wave of two Cryo Archer Hilichurls and three Shield Hilichurls. Don’t forget to collect the Common Treasure Chest in the middle.
Go to the middle mountain, where you’ll now need to defeat a group of two Shield Hilichurls, a Pyro Archer Hilichurl, and an Anemo Samachurl. With those dead, another cutscene will play, showing the shield cracking even more.
There won’t be any other enemies on this mountain, so grab your Common Chest and head off to the next mountain.
Go to the southwestern mountain, where you’ll need to eliminate a Cryo Samachurl and two Shield Hilichurls.
Defeat them, then you’ll see a quick cutscene showing the shield completely shattering, and the bad weather around the area will lift. When that ends, you’ll have two normal Hilichurl Archers, a Shield Mitachurl, and two Cryo Archer Hilichurl. There will also be an Exquisite Chest you can loot once the enemies are dead.
Finally, it’s time to claim your reward! After you take down a Stonehide Lawachurl, of course. It’s just going to be that one Lawachurl, and then the Luxurious Chest is ready for you to loot!
That’s all for Genshin Impact’s “Who Wields The Wild Wind” sidequest. There’ll be plenty more coming up here in the future, so stay tuned for the latest in Genshin Impact news and guides! This is Cory from HPP, signing off!
