The 3.0 update for Genshin Impact brought with it new characters, locales, and achievements – and players have already discovered one of the new hidden achievements.
“The Lengthy Reunion” is a secret achievement that, while simple, will take up quite a bit of your time. The achievement description simply says “Follow the Sumpter Beast that has lost its owner until it finishes its journey.” It doesn’t tell you where the Sumpter Beast is though, which is where I come in.
The large and lost lad in question can be found near the Statue of the Seven close toYazadaha Pool. It’ll be found just walking along the path, minding its business, and considering its size – it’ll be difficult to miss. Once you’ve found the Sumpter Beast, all you need to do is follow it. Easy enough right? Well yes… in theory.
This achievement will test both your clicking finger and your patience as this Sumpter Beast will be taking its sweet time getting to where it needs to go. Players are looking at about 10 minutes of following the beast while engaging with all manner of enemies. If that wasn’t enough, you also have to avoid killing the Sumpter Beast itself. Doing so will reset any progress you’ve made to that point – for obvious reasons.
Assuming you’ve followed the Sumpter Beast without killing it or dying, you’ll arrive at an Eremite camp. You did it! All that’s left now is to kill everyone in the camp, and you’ll get yourself a nice Exquisite Chest along with the achievement and a heavy conscience. You came for an achievement and left with the knowledge that you’ve bonded with this creature only to slaughter its original owners, taking their loot for yourself. I hope you’re happy.
That’s all there is to it. It’s not a difficult achievement, but if you’re prone to wandering off and exploring, it may prove mildly annoying. Best of luck regardless!
Have fun exploring the rest of Sumeru, and stay tuned to SQUAD for more Genshin Impact news and guides!
