How to do the Honkai: Star Rail Underground Treasure Hunt

Ancient ruins from before the Eternal Freeze are emerging once more, revealing hidden treasures and ancient relics. These valuable findings are buried deep within, awaiting the arrival of courageous and adventurous treasure hunters.

Once the event begins, a new ruin will be unlocked each day, totaling five ruins in all. Every ruin will offer two exploration modes: “Surface Exploration” and “Deep Exploration.” Completing the Surface Exploration for a ruin will unlock the Deep Exploration for that specific ruin. Throughout the event, explorers can venture into the ruins, achieving various levels of exploration progress to claim Treasure Hunt Rewards.

Treasure hunters can navigate the ruins by using stamina, uncovering items, supplies, and even encountering formidable adversaries. The ruins hold a mix of rewards and challenges, providing ample excitement for those seeking valuable discoveries.

Surface Exploration

Surface Exploration invites adventurers to plunge into the outer layers of the ruins, revealing introductory treasures that shed light on the ancient history encapsulated within the stage. This mode presents a harmonious blend of rewards and challenges, creating a well-rounded experience that primes individuals for the subsequent, more profound phases of exploration.

Deep Exploration

The uncharted depths of Deep Exploration excite treasure hunters to the very heart of the ruins, where the resources of unparalleled rewards are tempered by heightened risks. In this mode, one unearths the most coveted relics and treasures, yet achieving such riches requires strategic foresight and a landscape teeming with formidable enemies and intricate exploration.

The event comprises 5 stages, with one stage unlocked daily, starting from the event’s first day. In total, it takes 5 days to unlock all stages. Within each stage, two types of exploration exist, Surface Exploration as the initial stage, and Deep Exploration, which is somewhat more challenging than the previous mode.

Jing Yuan, Kafka, and Serval are strong contenders due to the prevalence of robot enemies; Lightning abilities alleviate challenges effectively. Furthermore, this setup enhances the Damage over Time (DoT) output of trial characters Kafka and Luka.

Surface Exploration consists of 8 levels, whereas Deep Exploration encompasses 6 levels. Despite the differing levels, both modes share the objective of uncovering treasures, including keycards, on each floor. The ultimate goal for both modes is to defeat the final boss on the last floor and thus complete the stage. Here are some key things to note when exploring the Ancient Ruins alongside some tips when clearing the stages:
