WAVERIDER: The quest ends with an introduction to the Waverider

As soon as players log into Genshin Impact 1.6, they will be greeted with the first quest of the Midsummer Island Adventure event, having them find Klee at the Knights of Favonius HQ in Mondstadt.

Once players talk to Klee, they will need to talk to three marked people around Mondstadt and then talk to Lisa in the Library in the Knights of Favonius HQ.

The story will then guide them to Jean's office, where after a brief conversation, they will need to wait until the next day and meet Jean and Barbara in the Cathedral plaza.

Players will then need to find Venti in Windrise, after which they will find themselves on the shores of the Golden Apple Archipelago, where they must board the Waverider to find and activate three teleport waypoints.

To find the waypoints, players must sail across the waters, using beacons to find their way from waypoint to waypoint.

Once a waypoint is found, players must disembark the Waverider, activate the waypoint, and board the Waverider to find the next.

When all three Waypoints are activated, players can teleport to the first island they arrived on to complete the quest.

Midsummer Island Adventure Rewards

Upon completing the Mysterious Islands: Journey to the Unknown quest, players will be rewarded with:

  • 60 Primogems
  • 3 Heroes Wit
  • 30,000 Mora
