The Golden Apple Archipelago is back for Genshin Impact’s Summertime Odyssey event, which runs from July 15, 2022, to August 24, 2022. Part of your summer island exploration involves completing a plethora of World Quests and puzzles, and by changing the mountain style after completing Xinyan’s Mirage, you can unlock even more content to enjoy in the Broken Isle.

How to unlock the Change Mountain Style feature in the Genshin Impact Golden Apple Archipelago

After completing The Golden Apple Vacation Returns! and unlocking the summer islands, you need to complete all three parts of Kazuha’s Mirage, As the Courtyard in Spring Once Appeared.

  • Part 1 (required)
  • Part 2 (required)
  • Part 3 (required)

Once that’s done, you’ll unlock the Event Quest called Blazin’ Trails!, which consists of two parts, but only the first part is required to unlock the Change Mountain Style function in the Broken Isle.

  • Part 1 (required)
  • Part 2 (optional)

After completing all the prerequisites above, you can interact with the drum on Xinyan’s island north of the Broken Isle.

Head to Xinyan’s island north of the Broken Isle through The Island’s Stirring Strings Waypoint. You’ll find a drum covered in thorns. Approach it and select Change Mountain Style to edit the topography of the Broken Isle.

The change is very subtle and not easily visible on the World Map, as only a single mountain will change. However, you’ll notice a difference in the mountain located to the left of the drum. Change Mountain Style will toggle between the short and tall mountains. This then unlocks a different set of puzzles, enemies, Challenges, Chests, and other forms of exploration! So, while exploring the Broken Isle, make sure to toggle between the two mountain styles to not miss anything.
