How to collect Shiny Flotsam in Genshin Impact

There’s a lot of new content in Genshin Impact Version 1.6, so it can be a bit to wrap your head around. The main attraction is the Midsummer Island Adventure event, which features two different types of currency: Shiny Flotsam and Mini “Harpastum.” If you’re curious, Shiny Flotsam is shells brought in by the tide that shine gorgeously, filled with the breath of the sea. You can exchange these for treasures during the event, but how do you get them? Here’s how to collect Shiny Flotsam in Genshin Impact so that you can complete those event tasks.

How to collect Shiny Flotsam in Genshin Impact

To collect Shiny Flotsam in Genshin Impact, enter the Golden Apple Archipelago zone. Open the map and navigate to one of the event icons. You will need to destroy the floating towers and eliminate all of the hilichurls in the given area to get a 200 Shiny Flotsam reward.

So, hop in the Waverider and navigate to any of the locations found on your map. Use your ship’s cannons to eliminate any floating structures. Not everything is destructible, though. You cannot destroy some of the platforms the hilichurls stand on, so you’ll have to hop out and work your way up to their level to fight them in that case. Luckily, there’s usually a wind current you can use to glide up to their height reasonably quickly.

If you are looking to complete the event challenges fully, you will need 2000 Shiny Flotsam for part one. That means you will need to clear ten of these zones in total to be able to claim all of the event rewards. There you have it. That’s how to collect Shiny Flotsam in Genshin Impact. You’re now ready to complete the Midsummer Island Adventure event and claim your free rewards.
