Treasure Hoarders are one of the common enemy types in Genshin Impact. Nevertheless, they drop Treasure Hoarder Insignias that are essential for character and weapon ascension and leveling up talents. All of which are critical to progress in the game.
There are different types of Treasure Hoarders that you will encounter during your travels. Close combat ones, Tanky ones, Shovel ones, and more. Unless your World Level is way ahead of your character progression you shouldn’t have any problems defeating them.
Upon death, the Treasure Hoarders may drop following items:
Treasure Hoarder Insignia
Silver Raven Insignia (Level 40+)
Golden Raven Insignia (Level 60+)
If you are unlucky with drops, you can also craft the higher-class Insignias on the Alchemy table. The crafting ratio is 3:1, thus to craft one Golden Insignia, you will require 3 Silver Insignias.
The easiest way to find treasure hoarders
Treasure Hoarders are mostly located in Liyue, so if you are in the beginning of the storyline in Mondstadt you will barely encounter any.
There are different ways to find the Treasure Hoarders, but the best one and the most unused one will be the Adventurers Handbook. Many adventurers forget about it after they complete all the chapters and collect all the rewards. But the Adventurers Handbook contains all the information about the Domains, Monsters, Commissions, and rewards.
After opening your handbook, jump to the Enemies tab and scroll all the way down to the bottom. The Treasure Hoarders are always at the end of the list. Click navigate and it will mark the location of the Treasure Hoarder group on your map. As soon as you clear it, the map will automatically redirect you to a new location.
Other methods to find treasure hoarders
A few other ways to find Treasure Hoarders that Adventurers use are by using interactive maps like this one. Or just remembering the locations by hard. The featured locations for Treasure Hoarders are:
East of Luhua Pool in Liyue
Between Mt. Tianheng and Lingju Pass in Liyue
South of Mt. Tianheng in Liyue
Last method that I used to use myself is to farm Ley Line Blossoms. Blossoms have random enemies including Treasure Hoarders and those will spawn regardless of the Blossom’s location. So if you in need of some Mora or Character EXP this might also a good way to get extra Insignias.
