In Genshin Impact’s Golden Apple Archipelago, “They Who Hear the Sea” is one of the six world quests you can find around the islands. In our Genshin Impact guide, we’ll walk you through how to unlock the quest, find the treasure, and the code you need to open the chest.

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 world quest, you’ll need to find a specific Echoing Conch on Twinning Isle.

After you find the conch, you’ll be directed to a small island within the Twinning Isle area, where a Hilichurl is digging. Defeat the Hilichurl and interact with the area, which will prompt you to dig. A treasure chest will appear.

You must enter the correct code to open this chest. What number do you wish to enter in the first position?

Paimon will say some stuff about not knowing how to open it when you interact with it. Interact with it again and input the code numbers 5, 2, 1, and 4, to open the chest. You’ll get mora, EXP, and most importantly, 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. Who Wields the Wild Wind?
  5. The Winding Homeward Way
