The Mimi Tomo event recently began in Genshin Impact, offering players a chance to earn primogems and furnishing blueprints. The event requires players to converse with friendly Hilichurls in their own language, in order to find the Unusual Hilichurl. Here's how to do it.

The event lasts from May 27, 2021, 10:00 am to June 6, 2021, 03:59 am (server time). You'll need to be Adventure Rank 20 or above to begin the event.

First, speak to Katheryne. She'll inform you that recently, a HIlichurl leader known as the "Unusual Hilichurl" has been causing some trouble. Your task is to track him down and defeat him. Next, follow the quest to find Hilichurlian scholar Ella Musk, who will assist you on your mission.

For the first seven days of the event, a new Sighting Location will be unlocked each day. Click on the Sighting Location in the event page, and then select "Go to investigate." You'll need to look for friendly Hilichurls who are willing to speak with you in the area marked on your map. With the help of Ella Musk, you can converse with the Hilichurls and ask them about their leader's whereabouts.

Each Hilichurl you encounter will first ask you for a favor. This will be either giving them an item, or heading to a location on the map to battle some enemies for them. When asking for an item, the Hilichurl will give you a phrase in Hilichurlian, and it is up to you to figure out the meaning of the phrase using your Handy Handbook of Hilichurlian. If you get stuck, try checking out our guides on terms like "Celi lata" and "Lata Boya Satta."

The first HIlichurl you talk to will always point you to a second Hilichurl that has the information you want. Repeat the process, and the second Hilichurl will give you a location where the Unusual Hilichurl spawns, as well as a term for the time of day when he'll spawn. Here are what the terms mean:

  • Aba mosi dada: 6:00 am to 12:00 pm
  • Unta mosi dada: 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
  • Mosi aba nunu: 6:00 pm to 12:00 am
  • Unta nunu: 12:00 am to 6:00 am

Head to the location on your map, wait till the designated time, and you'll find the Unusual Hilichurl. Now it's time to fight. The Unusual Hilichurl will be much stronger than your average Hilichurl, and he'll summon friends to come help him fight. He himself doesn't have any particularly strong attacks, though, so focus on him and you'll be done in no time.

After defeating the Unusual Hilichurl, you'll be rewarded with primogems, a furnishing blueprint for your Serenitea pot, and items like Hero's Wits and Mora. Head to the next Sighting Location to continue your journey.
