Routes, exploration and breeding guide

Genshin Impact grabs players’ attention with its beautiful open-world landscapes and endless exploration. Unfortunately, this feature is both a blessing and a nightmare. While players can explore every corner of Teyvat, finding specific items or materials will be a challenge due to the size of the nation.

To solve this problem, Genshin Impact players can use the official interactive map to facilitate the game. Not only can players create routes to farm essential materials, but they can also check which treasure chests they missed and which puzzles they left behind.


How can players access the official Genshin Impact interactive map?

Almost everything in Genshin Impact was marked on the interactive map from enemies, materials, puzzles, and even an easter egg. Additionally, the list can be filtered by each nation: Mondstadt, Liyue, Dragonspine, Inazuma.

It is also clearly divided by types using various symbols, so users won’t have problems searching for specific items. Just choose the items you’re looking for, and the interactive map will show you where they are.

Here are the sections divided in the interactive map of Teyvat:

  1. Waypoints
  2. Oculi
  3. Open World Chests
  4. Local specialties
  5. Enemies (common)
  6. Enemies (Elite)
  7. Enemies (Bosses)
  8. Deep Sanctuary
  9. Brain teaser
  10. Guide
  11. Fishing
  12. Materials
  13. Ores
  14. Enemies (Easter Egg)

One of the unique features of Genshin Impact’s Teyvat interactive map is how they allow users to create routes by connecting pins on the map. By creating a route, you will not walk through the area. Follow the instructions below to create a route:

  1. Choose the materials you want to research (Starconch, Anemoculus, Geo Sigil, etc.)
  2. Click Create Route in the upper left corner.
  3. Connect the pins. Left-click the pin to draw a route, right-click to remove the previous pin, and double-click to complete the route.
  4. Enter the route name and click the Confirm button.
  5. You can then access the route by opening “My Pins”.

Exploring Genshin Impact has never been so easy and satisfying with the interactive map. Besides checking where the specific locations of the items are, you can also hide the pin after picking up the item.

For example, if you choose to show common chests in Genshin Impact, the interactive map will show the location of each chest in each region. Additionally, some Pins may come with images submitted by other players.

You can then travel to the area marked on the map in Genshin Impact to retrieve the treasure chest. Once you’ve claimed it, you can return to the interactive map to hide the pin. You can use this tool to track your exploration and collection progress.

You can also refer to Teyvat’s interactive map to farm local delicacies in Genshin Impact. It logs each material location and displays pins using item images. The map can reveal multiple materials at once. However, the map will be cluttered and you may not see the area accurately with other pins obstructing your view. It is therefore recommended to choose only two or three elements at a time.

Of course, this is not limited to local specialties. You can also check the locations of every fish, ore, and even wood in Genshin Impact. Then, use the route technique mentioned above to create a route and make farming easier.


Using the map on mobile devices

You can open Teyvat interactive map on HoYoLAB app from your mobile device. Although the interface differs slightly from the website to accommodate the small screen, the functions are all the same.

To see all Pins, tap the filter icon in the top right corner. After choosing the materials you want to include on the map, press Collapse to close the Filter tab. Similar to the website version, you can hide any pins you want after interacting with them. So, the difference between using the mobile version and the web version is only in the screen size and the interface.


Teyvat’s interactive map is a great addition to the HoYoLAB page, and players won’t regret using it. The interactive map makes exploration in Genshin Impact more efficient as users can search for specific items, uncover missing puzzles, and cultivate local delicacies.
