Hilichurls are among the many enemies Genshin Impact players come across on their way to completing quests. While the normal Hilichurls are not hard to defeat, the Unusual Hilichurls are something more energy and time-consuming to take down.

Those who want to either avoid or see this creature with their own eyes will want to know about Genshin Impact Unusual Hilichurl locations. Besides, learning how to defeat them will also clear the way when you are in the middle of exploring the vast map.

What Are Genshin Impact Unusual Hilichurls?

Since Genshin Impact 1.1 update, players have seen some exotic-looking Hilichurls around. The Unusual Hilichurls, whose names do not pop up in Elemental Vision, carry suitcases around and are actually non-aggressive. They only attack when the players damage them first.

They are even featured in Genshin Impact memes due to their special behaviors compared to other beasts.

When attacked, the critters are titled “Unusual Hilichurl” with the "Menace of the Mansion" subtitle. Strangely enough, these creatures toss weaponized Primogems at the player with other odd attacks:

  • Cabbages and Primogems as Damage Projectiles (Ranged).
  • Homu Doll Toss (Ranged).
  • Suitcase Knock Back (Melee).

Along with the different antics and appearances, they also have more buffed powers. These strange Hilichurls cannot be petrified or frozen.

These Hilichurls may not be hostile at all if you don't provoke them.

Genshin Impact Unusual Hilichurls is inspired by a fictional character based on miHoYos founder, Liu Wei. These characters also throw leafy greens as a reference to the mascot of Honkai Impact 3rd. In fact, the yellow Homu doll is also a throwback to one of the gaming company’s previous titles.

Defeating the Unusual Hilichurls in Genshin Impact will earn you 233 Mora, from 1 to 3 Cabbages, and 18 Adventure Experiences. However, you can gain achievements and a number of Primogems to boot if you can kill several of them.

Genshin Impact Unusual Hilichurl Locations And Times

These strange Hilichurls can spawn in 16 locations in total at any time of the day. While many thought they would spawn at specific spots on a timer, this seems not to be the case.

Currently, there are 8 possible Unusual Hilichurl locations in Liyue and 8 more in the storied and historic city of Mondstadt. When players have found one and taken it down, another will appear in one of the remaining 15 locations.

However, when the second Hilichurl has been beaten up into ashes, there is a 12-hour cooldown until the next Hilichurl spawns. There is just one Unusual Hilichurl at any given time in any world. Although you can farm them in the co-op mode, you are limited to 10 kills each day and still get drops.

How To Defeat Unusual Hilichurl

Searching for Unusual Hilichurls is already the hardest part. Defeating them is not that of a problem. Use these tips to kill them:

1. Fight directly

They are not hostile naturally and will only combat when triggered. Therefore, sneaking up on them like other opponents is not necessary.

2. Use high damage characters

As they often roll out some ranged attacks, attacking from a distance will not keep you safe. Make use of any available high damage characters (Diluc, Hu Tao, Venti, Xiao…) and wail away on them.

High damage characters are recommended to beat these goblins.

3. Defeat comrades

The seemingly only problem that arises is that Unusual Hilichurls have health regeneration power. Therefore, defeat their comrades first and it will be easier to take it down.

Be careful of the surroundings as a lot of places that this beast is situated are close to high cliffs.

Getting the "Achievement …Well That Was Strange"

After killing one of these Genshin Impact Genshin Impact will offer you the completed achievement “…Well That Was Strange”, giving 5 Primogems for your efforts.

Keeping on and defeat the masked creatures will level this achievement up and offers you another 10 Primogems for 20 defeated and 20 Primogems for 50 killed. Cabbage, despite being the ingredients for some of the best Genshin Impact food, is not worth the efforts of hunting down and fighting these critters. However, the Free-mogems and the achievements may just be.
