Where to find the Aranyaka Mysterious Clipboard buried chests in Genshin Impact

Where to find each buried chest in the Mysterious Clipboard

After starting and quickly completing the world quest “Static Views” in Genshin Impact, you’ll be entrusted with a Mysterious Clipboard within your Aranyaka quest item. You’ll need to find several buried chests around Sumeru to get a heap of treasure as well as complete “Static Views, Part 2.”

If you haven’t unlocked the Mysterious Clipboard yet, you can do so after completing “The World of Aranara” world quest at the mailbox below.

We recommend completely finishing all of the “Aranyaka” world quest before digging these up, as many of them will be in areas locked by this quest progression.

Below we list out all the locations with map markers, but if you’re stuck, make sure to reference the Aranyaka quest item to look at the drawing hints included, too.


Aranyaka buried chest #10

We’re actually going to start with treasure #10, because it’s not technically in Sumeru, and you may already have it if you were going hard in The Chasm. It’s in this lush cavern in The Chasm, which we marked the entrance to above. You will need this chest to complete the quest, so we recommend getting it out of the way first.

The version of Vanarana you need to be in is the version without the Aranara. You can swap which version of Vanarana you’re in by playing the harp at the small statue around the corner from the Statue of the Seven. (You will have done this at least once before to even have this quest.)


Aranyaka buried chest #2

This chest, for some reason, clipped through the weather-changing mechanism for us.


Aranyaka buried chest #3

This chest is underground. Teleporting to the Teleport Waypoint right above the star on the map will take you almost directly to it.

This chest is underground under the large rooted tree. You entered this cave previously to complete the “Starry Night Chapter” world quest.

Aranyaka buried chest #7

This chest is in a cavern you can enter by going southeast of Vimara Village. You entered this cave previously to do the “Vimana Agama” world quest.


Aranyaka buried chest #8

This is another cavern you needed to enter in order to complete “Vimana Agama.” If you teleport to the Teleport Waypoint to the right of the star marked above, it should take you almost directly in front of where the chest is.

The last “chest” is here, but it’s not really a chest.

If you haven’t been here yet, you’ll need to enter from the path that goes into the cliffs southeast of the star on the above map. You’ll also need to clear away Withering in this cave.

If you’ve already done this, you can teleport straight to the Teleport Waypoint below the star to head here quickly.

Once you’re here, the seed from the #10 chest will start shaking, and you’ll need to play the directed song on the Vintage Lyre gadget. Once you do, you can enter the cave, a cutscene will play, and “Static Views, Part 2” will complete.

You’ll be in a room with tons of treasure chests, but sadly, you probably won’t be able to open most of them. In order to open every chest in this room, you’ll need to find and help every single Aranara in Sumeru. It’s a daunting task, but if you’re up to the challenge, we recommend using a map tracking tool like the Genshin Impact Interactive Map.
