Survey Site: Yaoguang Shoal | Genshin Impact: Shadow of the Ancients Event

This guide shows the walkthrough of the Yaoguang Shoal Survey Site for Shadow of the Ancients Event: Phase 1. Click here to check the walkthrough of all 4 Survey Areas. In the survey sites, you will find an exquisite chest, a challenge, and a Conduction Component Quest Item.

How Ayesha’s Chaos Prospector Work

As you enter the survey area, the “Start Challenge” prompt will appear. Now equip Ayesha’s Chaos Prospector Gadget as shown in the picture below.
Note: The event gadget can be used only within the event area

On usage, Ayesha’s Chaos prospector is placed in front of you and it will survey an area in a specific radius around itself. If it discovers any survey targets within the area of effect (AoE), it will mark its location with a glowing light as shown in the picture below. If the survey target is not within the Prospector’s AoE, a beam of light emitting from the gadget (see picture below) will indicate the direction in which you need to place the next Prospector. You can use a maximum of three Prospectors at once. If you place a fourth prospector, the first survey device you placed will be automatically retrieved.
