It’s time for some Summer fun. Genshin Impact has slowed the main story, replacing it with an update that includes some summertime goofin’. By “summertime goofin’ ” I’m of course referring to that you can collect 32 items called Echoing Conches in a limited-time area called the Golden Apple Archipelago. If you can find at least 24 Echoing Conches you’ll unlock a summer-themed skin for Barbara. Isn’t completing a tedious collectible task quintessentially summer?
Here’s how you can find every Echoing Conch in Genshin Impact.
But first: What are your favorite games and platforms of 2021, and what future releases are you most excited about? Take our poll!
How to find an Echoing Conch in Genshin Impact
If you’re looking high and low for an Echoing Conch without an ounce of luck, you just might not know what to spot. Echoing Conches can be spotted in two ways:
- Similar to Occuli, Echoing Conches will appear on your minimap when you’re close to one
- You can also find them by looking through the world. Echoing Conches emit a little glow when you’re close to them.
There are 32 total echoing Conches to collect in Genshin Impact. You can currently only collect a mere 28 Echoing Conches, meaning it’s enough to unlock your Summertime Sea Barbara skin, but not enough to finish.
Where to find every Echoing Conch in Genshin Impact
If you’re looking for every single darn Echoing Conch, look no further. We have a map featuring the first five below:
- Echoing Conch Collection IV: “My Hero” (1): You’ll find it on Pudding Isle’s peak.
- Echoing Conch Collection VII: Island Bygones (6): You’ll find it behind some wooden crates to the north of Pudding Isle’s Teleport Waypoint.
- Echoing Conch Collection I: Songs of a Distant Home (3): This can be found east of the Teleportation Waypoint by gliding downward. The Echoing Conch will be next to a tree.
- Echoing Conch Collection I: Songs of a Distant Home (4): On the peak of Twinning Isle’s southern section.
- Echoing Conch Collection VII: Island Bygones (7): This can be found by sailing Northwest of the Teleportation Waypoint on Broken Isle.
For the further additions of Echoing Conches, you can watch this handy guide below:
If you, an eager collector who found the first five Echoing Conches, this will take you through all the new additions, making it a cinch to obtain the new skin. If you don’t feel like collecting all 32 Echoing Conches, you’ll be able to purchase Barbara’s skin for 1600 Genisis Crystals starting in the patch following 1.6.
When will more Echoing Conch shells be added?
Additional Echoing Conches will be added as Version 1.6 continues. More are expected to be made available with each Act of Midsummer Island Adventure. Here are the dates for every upcoming Midsummer Island Adventure Act:
- Act II will arrive on June 11 at 4 a.m. Eastern.
- Act III will arrive on June 14 at 4 a.m. Eastern.
- Act IV will arrive on June 17 at 4 a.m. Eastern
You’ll be able to search the area for Echoing Conches throughout Version 1.6. Feel free to take your time collecting all of them.
