Genshin Impact guide: A Trip Through Fog and Wind world quest walkthrough

Genshin Impact has a new world quest, “A Trip Through Fog and Wind,” in the Golden Apple Archipelago. It can be hard to unlock. In our guide and walkthrough, we’ll explain how to unlock the quest, navigate the waters, and find your loot.

In Genshin Impact’s Golden Apple Archipelago, there are many world quests, including the “Who Wields the Wild Wind?,” which is hidden away a little bit. In our Genshin Impact guide, we’ll walk you through how to unlock the world quest and complete it.

The Golden Apple Archipelago is a limited time area for patch 1.6, and it won’t be available after July 20, according to an in-game countdown. Make sure you complete your world quests and grab your loot before then.

To unlock the “Who Wields the Wild Wind?” world quest, head to the island in the northwest of your map. The quest should activate when you arrive in the area and approach the treasure with a red barrier.

Terra Nil is the video game version of ‘nature is healing’

Terra Nil is a chill “reverse city-builder” that’s a marvel to play. Ghibli-inspired graphics and animations spark joy while players solve simple puzzles. Our time with an early demo was well spent, but can its systems support more complex play?

To break the barrier, climb the three mountains and take out the enemies at the top. After you beat the monsters on top of each, a short cutscene will play, showing the red barrier weakening until it’s eventually broken.

After beating all three swarms of enemies, you’ll be able to open the treasure chest and complete the quest, earning yourself EXP, Mora, and Primogems.

The Golden Apple Archipelago has five other world quests that reward Primogems and other goodies:

  1. The Other Side of Isle and Sea
  2. From Outer Lands
  3. A Trip Through Fog and Wind
  4. The Winding Homeward Way
  5. They Who Hear the Sea
