Genshin Impact's sprawling land of Teyvat is covered in floating mechanisms known as time trial challenges that reward players with Achievements once a certain number of challenges have been completed. As more new areas are released, the total number of time trials further increases! Read on to find the locations of all 410 time trial challenges in Genshin Impact.
In total, I found 17 total time trial locations in Mondstadt, 16 in Dragonspine, 45 scattered across Liyue, 20 in the Chasm, 80 in Inazuma, 18 in Enkanomiya, and 157 in Sumeru (whew!), and 47 in Fontaine. Luckily, you can choose to complete these trials in co-op to make the process a little easier.
