The event-exclusive Golden Apple Archipelago is open to explore until Genshin Impact's 1.6 update run comes to an end around July 21, 2021. Although all kinds of minigames and activities will be released over the span of the next couple of weeks, you can start collecting conch shells for the Echoing Tales questline immediately. So what are you waiting for?
Act II of Midsummer Island Adventure, Summer Vacation: Proceed with Caution unlocks new areas and lots of new Echoing Conches to find. Get ready to sail all over the Golden Apple Archipelago!
