Genshin Impact: Shadow of the Ancients event guide – Ayesha’s Chaos Prospector and Investigative Survey locations
The Shadow of the Ancients event in Genshin Impact will be available if you meet certain requirements: reach Adventure Rank 30 and complete Act 1 of the Inazuma Archon quest. You should see a quest called “Journey to Tsurumi,” and you’ll have to speak with Katheryne in the Inazuma Adventurer’s Guild.
Next, use the fast travel point south of Wakukau Shoal to find an arena with a Ruin Grader. After taking it out, it’ll suddenly replenish its HP. Report your findings to Katheryne and talk to a man named Hosseini in Ritou. You’ll then receive a new gadget in Genshin Impact called Ayesha’s Chaos Prospector. When you open the event panel, you’ll notice that we’re currently at Stage 1: Investigative Surveys. Four locations can be visited, and we’ll tackle these in the next sections.
