10 places to find the Unusual Hilichurl Wei in Genshin Impact

Ten Weis to find the unusual Hilichurl

Genshin Impact is this fall's biggest free-to-play game, and it just introduced update 1.1, its largest expansion yet. One of the most exciting new additions is an enemy named after the company’s CEO Liu Wei that grants players some enticing rewards.

Hilichurls are one of the most common enemy types in the game, and they somewhat resemble run-of-the-mill goblins. Wei’s “Unusual” variant will reward the player with Primogems if you defeat him, which is just enough to make him a worthwhile method to farm the elusive currency.

Here are 10 places you can find Wei and claim your bounty in Genshin Impact.

How do you spot Wei, the Unusual Hilichurl?

You can find Wei in one of the following 10 spots. His markings will be distinct from other Hilichurls. His mask will have unique characters on it. He'll also often spawn alone whereas Hilichurls usually travel in packs. Wei seems to rotate between these 10 spawn points, so you'll have to visit each one to find him with certainty.

You can farm him to earn achievements, thus quickly earning Primogems in the process.

Though he attacks you with Primogems, these cannot be reused for purchases. Kill Wei quickly to move onto the next spawn point.

All 10 locations were found using a mix of player reports from Reddit and Taka G.G, and they're marked in the following maps by the thin white circle that represents the in-game cursor.
