Genshin Impact uses chess pieces as common motifs, and you’ll find one example of this while exploring the giant chessboard at Safhe Shatranj. Missing pieces in the area can be filled in with chess pieces similar to the main locations in the Sumeru Desert region. Collecting all five can be used to unlock a global quest called Apocalypse Lost, as well as a giant chessboard puzzle.
All of these chess pieces can be collected from gorgeous chests while completing the Dirge of Bilqis quest chain and the follow-up quest Tadhla the Falcon. Check your inventory because you may already have it.
