With there being a lot to experience in Genshin Impact, players will often find various chests spread throughout the land. Many of these chests are filled with valuable items including rare artifacts that will help players throughout their journeys.
What some players may not know is that many of these chests have the ability to respawn. The length it takes for chests to respawn in Genshin Impact depends on the chest\’s rarity, meaning players should mark down the locations of rarer chests so they don\’t forget them down the line.
The only type of chest that won\’t respawn are precious chests. These have a wooden appearance with gold metal trimmings around the sides, so players have no reason to mark them.
The chests found in Genshin Impact with the ability to respawn are common chests, exquisite chests, and luxurious chests, with each being more rare than the last. As mentioned before, the rarer the chest, the longer it will take to respawn. Players can also use these respawning chests to get more Adventure Experience and rank up.
Common chests are the easiest to find in both the overworld and in dungeons. They are mostly made of wood with a rounded top, and are held together with common metal. When opening them, they can provide zero-to-two Primogems, 20 Adventure Experience, one-to-three Sigils, a random amount of Mora, and random weapons, artifacts, or Character EXP boosters. They will respawn randomly in the overworld after 4:00 a.m. server time.
Exquisite chests are a bit rarer and will likely require players to perform some kind of action before opening them. They are also made of wood, but have a squared top. These chests have mostly the same rewards as a common chest, but will also provide two-to-five Primogems, 20-to-30 Adventure Experience, and three-to-four Sigils. They also seem to have the same respawn patterns as common chests.
Finally, luxurious chests are some of the rarest players can find. They are white in color with golden trimming, and after players open them they will provide the usual chest rewards with the differences being 10-to-40 Primogems, 30-to-60 Adventure Experience, and four-to-ten Sigils. They have a chance to respawn after at least three weeks have passed in real time. Because of this, these chests are the best to mark on the map so players to reap these rarer rewards more often.
Genshin Impact is available now on Mobile, PC, and PS4, and is in development for Switch.
