Survival Wisdom Quest Walkthrough

Once you complete the Lying in Rust Trailblaze quest, you’ll receive a message from Sampo asking for your help in a life-or-death situation. Head into the Great Mine via the Navigate function on the mission to meet up with Sampo. 

Where to Find the Lost Mining Tools

The first part of the Survival Wisdom mission involves finding two misplaced mining tools. The Thermal-Powered Mechanical Mining Pick can be found right near Sampo, between him and the Space Anchor. You’ll see other mining tools set aside. Search there to find it.

The Customized Pink Safety Helmet can be found by winding your way through the mine. You’ll eventually encounter a Vagrant that you can’t ambush. And they’re actually using the helmet. Defeat the Vagrant to obtain it. 

With both items in hand, head back to Sampo to retrieve your treasure map. After a brief exchange, you’ll be able to set off in search of your reward. 

Finding the First Hidden Treasure 

The spot for this treasure is a wee bit hard to discern. You’ll want to head to the Overlook Space Anchor, then head north. You’ll come across a Vagrant camp, and you’ll either have to sneak near the first tent or defeat the closer Vagrants. This camp is before the elevator switch; if you’re past that, you’ve gone too far.

Once you get to the closest side of the tent, you’ll see a glimmer you can investigate. Do so to get an Anti-Dust Mask, which happens to be the last missing mining tool for Sampo. Head back to Sampo to demand the real treasure map. 

The Real Treasure Map Treasure Location

After you have the real map in hand, head back to the Vagrant camp. To speed things up, and avoid additional battles, I just teleported back and forth between the two locations. Make your way through the camp and continue west until you come across a Formidable foe.

You’ll need to get through the Formidable foe to gain access to the area. The enemies consist of robots with shielding skills, as well as Vagrants who can buff. There are two waves, with the second wave consisting of three robots and two Vagrants. 

After defeating them, continue down the path, past the tents, until you see a glimmer near the wall. Investigating the area will reveal a treasure chest that contains Relics, among other items. Finding the chest completes the mission and earns you the Greed Psychology achievement. For other quest help, best character builds, or how weaknesses work, check out our Honkai Star Rail guides
