There are a number of hidden Easter Eggs all over Tevyat and in Genshin Impact in general, one of which being the lovable Unusual Hilichurl.
As someone who loves exploring around his world regularly in Genshin Impact, I often saw the Unusual Hilichurl and ran past it due to the fact that it does not aggro a player upon getting close to it.
The reality is that while the Unusual Hilichurl is not a mob that damages players upon sight, the Unusual Hilichurl is a mob that will deal damage if players initiate the battle.
Players can initiate battle with the Unusual Hilichurl by attacking it first.
WHAT DO YOU GET FOR KILLING THE UNUSUAL HILICHURL?
While players may not be impressed by the drops the Unusual Hilichurl provides simply upon defeating him, the reality is that he is going to be a mob you fight regularly for your Adventure Achievements, which I will cover shortly.
Simply for killing the Unusual Hilichurl, players will receive the following loot:
18 Adventure Experience
…WELL, THAT WAS STRANGE ACHIEVEMENT
The main reason a player will want to farm out their Unusual Hilichurl is due to the “…Well, That Was Strange” achievement which requires a certain amount of kills in order to get Primogems.
The “…Well That Was Strange” achievement can be found in the Challenger – Series II section of the Achievement log requiring players to acquire 3 tiers in order to complete successfully.
The following are the amount of kills a player must successfully complete in order to get these achievements and their rewards.
Kill the Unusual Hilichurl 1 time for 5 Primogems.
Kill the Unusual Hilichurl 20 time for 10 Primogems.
Kill the Unusual Hilichurl 50 time for 20 Primogems.
HOW OFTEN DOES THE UNUSUAL HILICHURL RESPAWN?
The Unusual Hilichurl has the possibility to respawn every 12 hours, meaning that a player can kill a maximum of 2 Unusual Hilichurls a day.
While this seems like a good respawn rate, the reality is that a player will have to spend a good portion of their grinding actually locating the Unusual Hilichurls as there are 16 different spawn points in their world.
8 spawn points are located in Mondstadt and 8 spawn points are located in Liyue.
Upon killing the Unusual Hilichurl the game will begin a 12-hour respawn time in order for players to kill the H
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T KILL AN UNUSUAL HILICHURL IMMEDIATELY?
There are many situations where a player will not have enough time to complete a task or are too focused on completing another task, leaving them to want to disregard another task in favour of the task they’re currently completing.
While there is no real negative to avoiding battling an Unusual Hilichurl that they discover, players will want to try to mark it in order to return within a 12-hour period as as soon as a player sights the Unusual Hilichurl it will start a timer upon discovery.
The discovery timer will last for 12-hours, similar to if a player kills the Hilichurl.
CAN YOU CO-OP THE UNUSUAL HILICHURL?
While there are a number of tasks that players cannot complete in Co-op, the reality is that players will be able to farm out the Unusual Hilichurl with friends in order to get their Achievement faster.
If players are hoping to farm the Unusual Hilichurl this way they will be able to farm out the two Unusual Hilichurls located in each of the worlds they travel to.
ALL UNUSUAL HILICHURL LOCATIONS
As mentioned there are currently 16 locations where the Unusual Hilichurl can be located, however, I can’t pretend that all of the locations have been compiled into one place on the web as it seems like the Genshin Impact team has been adding new locations which haven’t been updated on a number of blogs and resources.
The following are all the locations that have been discovered including some of the locations that I’ve personally discovered.
I will make sure that I update this post as more locations are discovered and added to the game.
I will also update these pictures to include the Unusual Hilichurl as I experience him in these areas as it can be difficult to take screenshots of him all the time.
LOCATIONS OF THE UNUSUAL HILICHURL IN MONDSTADT
The following are the 6 locations of the Unusual Hilichurl in Mondstadt:
When players head to the Statue of the Seven in the Stormterror’s Lair they can head to the southwest by the broken bridge.
Players will always be able to see a regular Hilichurl in this location, hidden behind the crates, though the Unusual Hilichurl will appear in front of the crates.
THE WOLF OF THE NORTH’S ARENA
When doing your weeklies it’s always a good idea to check around to locate the Unusual Hilichurl while heading to Andrus.
The Unusual Hilichurl should not be difficult to locate as he is standing on the right side of the entrance of the arena walls, though it seems he can sometimes appear on the left of the arena as well, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled.
No matter which side he appears on, he will always be standing on the upper area of the entrance.
I truthfully always go to this location on a daily basis as it’s a great resource for Wolfhook which will help you ascend characters like Razor.
Realistically even if you don’t need Wolfhooks, this is a great area to farm chests and simply kill mobs to farm up some resources.
To the west of the Anemo Hypostasis, by the Shrine is another location for the Unusual Hilichurl.
Players will not be regularly visiting this area unless they are grinding up some Hurricane Seeds for their Anemo Characters, though they can regularly swing by this area to see if there are any chests in the area.
Players will want to begin their journey at the Statue of the Seven located in Windrise and will want to make their way to the base of the Oak Tree.
Often the Unusual Hilichurl will be located on the left-hand base of the giant Oak Tree sleeping, though because this location is so close to the Statue of the Seven it should be easy for players to check it out on a daily basis.
Honestly I usually make rounds here on a regular basis simply because of the Windwheel Aster that’s so easily accessible as that’s going to be a much needed resource for ascending characters.
When taking the Waypoint by the Dadupa Gorge, players can head to the cliff just north of the Cemetary of the Swords where they will locate the Unusual Hilichurl sleeping.
The Cape Oath location is a bit of an unusual location for the Unusual Hilichurl as it’s not really next to any resources a player needs to be farming, meaning that a player will only want to head there if they cannot locate the Unusual Hilichurl anywhere else.
The Cape Oath location is in the area where players can see across the water and enjoy the view of the sea from the peak of the cliff.
I usually don’t visit this area unless I haven’t found the Unusual Hilichurl in other locations due to it’s disparity in resources.
LOCATIONS OF THE UNUSUAL HILICHURL IN LIYUE
The following are the 8 locations of the Unusual Hilichurl in Liyue:
This was actually the first location I found the Unusual Hilichurl as it was a location where you could farm out a number of Liyue specific resources and is one of the easier locations to spot the Unusual Hilichurl.
Players must head to Qingce Village where the Unusual Hilichurl will be sitting on one of the walls.
Although this location isn’t the most beneficial anymore, as the Battle Pass reward for farming Liyue Specialties is no longer active, this is an area that’s very easy to get to, making it quick and painless to do.
Just East of the Stone Gate waypoint is a Hilichurl, requiring players to climb up the cliff to actually find it.
Players will want to make sure that they do not jump up the cliff as doing so will deplete the majority of their stamina risking them to fall down the cliff, though if players find a route to rest on they may be able to do it using this method.
Players will need to face the direction of the treehouse to the North in order to locate the Unusual Hilichurl.
When headed to the Unusual Hilichurl in Mingyun Village, players will have to head to the domain in the Mingyun Village and head Southwest.
Down here players will need to climb some of the cliffs as the Hillichurl will be facing the islands.
When it comes to the Unusual Hilichurl located in Qingyun Peak players will be able to see this Hilichurl from a number of locations.
Players can either head to the Statue of the Seven and begin travelling north or can head to the waypoint and head to the West.
The unusual Hilichurl is located on the Spiral Patterned rocks.
When searching for the Unusual Hilichurl in Cuijue Slope, players must take the Waypoint that takes them to this area.
Here players will have to head to the pillars by the ground close to the tomb in order to find the Unusual Hilichurl.
In Tianqiu Valley, players can take the waypoint and head to the West of this area to find a broken platform.
It’s over here that players will be able to locate the Unusual Hilichurl.
NORTH OF LIYUE HARBOR
Players will be able to locate this Unusual Hilichul by heading to the south of the Guili Planes and locating the a cliff that overlooks the sea and Liyue Harbour.
It is here that the Unusual Hilichurl will be.
Players must head to Lingju Pass entrance in order to locate this Unusual Hilichurl.
Players will have to head to the south to find a plateau where the Hilichurl will be sleeping.
