In Genshin Impact, The Cycle of a Thousand Wonders is a quest in the Mirage world of Veluriam, during which you have to find three treasures by using Idia's clues and solving several puzzles. You also have to choose a place where you will bury your own treasure. If you're having trouble accepting and completing this quest, check out our guide.
Walking a Thousand Wonders quest
How to start the quest
First of all, you will need to complete the main storyline of the temporary region by completing the quest chain “The Story of a Dream and a Beginning!”. Then move to the teleporter in the Theater of Dreamers (teleporting to any Veluria Mirage location is probably fine) and wait until Paimon speaks to you – she will offer to chat with Idia.
Oceanid can be found in the northern part of the town in the Garden of Silver Vessels. The girl will stand behind the counter of one of the shops. She will tell you about the treasures that can be found in this amazing dungeon.
Find the location of the first treasure
Go south from your current location. Along the way, you will see a clue that will point to the location of the treasure. In short, you will need to sit next to a lamppost.
So, get to a small wooden platform near the river, on which there are tables and chairs. Here you will get a new task: “Find the light of the lamp” and “seat at the table”. To complete it, simply sit at any of the tables so that a regular chest appears nearby – open it and return to Idia.
Find the location of the second treasure
After talking to Idia, you will receive a second clue. So, move to the central teleport of the city, and then jump off the cliff and glide down in a southeast direction to the Chuh-Chukh.
Get into the transport and drive to the previously blocked cave on the south side of the location. When you get to the right place, go deep into the dungeon, and you will find a puzzle with a preprint here. Before entering 2D, move the crate shown in the screenshot below to the right.
Move to the preprint, then go right, climb onto the previously moved box and climb up to the second floor. Then stand on the lift and use it to get to the third level. There, run to the right and enter the portal. The whole process is shown in the gif below.
< p>Once in the next location, jump down, run to the right and stand on the moving platform, but don't ride it all the way to the top – instead, jump off it halfway to reach the chest on the right. You can now return to the elevator and go up to the upper tier, where the exit from the preprint is located. The entire path is shown in the gif below.
< p>Once out of 2D, go to the quest marker, open the rich chest, and return to Idia to tell her of your progress.
Locate Treasure 3 (Hydro Eidolons)
Examine the third clue – it points to the central node of the region. Travel to the town's central teleporter and then approach the three Hydro Eidolons next to the blue orb.
First Hydro Eidolon
The droplets will immediately disappear and you will need to find them. Fortunately, their approximate location will be shown on the map. You can search for water balloons in any order. So, pass by the blue orb, climb onto the root of the tree, and use the four-leaf symbols to get to the floating island, where the first drop is waiting for you.
When you get close to the ball, it will turn into a plant – interact with it, and then destroy the three fluttering tomatoes from the onion. Two will be behind you, and the third will be in front. Then click on the Hydro Eidolon again, asking it to return to its starting point.
Second Hydro Eidolon
Go back to the orb and now follow the path to the top, where you will immediately find a second water ball. When you get close to him, start following him upstairs, and then jump off the ledge down and keep going down. Next, climb onto the ledge on the right and go to the area with the preprint.
Jump down from the wooden platform and glide to the island with trees. Approach the Hydro Eidolon and ask him to return to his starting point.
Third Hydro Eidolon
Move back upstairs and go forward again to the floating island where you found the first droplet. After climbing it, take a good look around to find a four-leaf symbol in the distance next to a tree – lean towards it and you will see a water ball surrounded by molds on a wooden platform below.
Deal with the enemies, then ask the eidolon to return to his original position. Also return to the blue sphere, which will be removed by droplets. As a result, the four-leaf symbol you need will appear.
Climb up following the water balloons and use the quatrefoils to climb to the top of the tree. Now wait until the booth pulls up to you, and sit in it. When it reaches the desired level, use the four-leaf symbols and fly to the floating island in the distance.
Interact with the three markers on the edges of the island, then dig up a deluxe chest in its center. Inside it, you will find the Cycle of a Thousand Wonders Memorabilia III. Return to Idia and tell her about your find.
Where to hide your own treasure
During a conversation with Idia, she will offer you to bury your own memento somewhere in Veluriam Mirage. You can choose one of three locations:
- Somewhere above, in the Garden of Silver Vessels?
- Let's hide the treasure by the lake.
- Shall we hide it at the entrance to Mirage Velurium?
You can choose any option, as it will only affect the place where you have to go. The reward and ending of the quest will not change. For example, if you choose the first option, then you just have to teleport to the central teleporter and hide the treasure to the left of it.
Again, you can choose any item. This task will come to an end. By the way, nearby you can find a Mysterious pocket watch in the form of mora. Unfortunately, their purpose is still unknown. As a reward for completing the quest, you will receive 100 adventure points, 10 thousand mora and 20 primogems.
