There’s one you missed I think
I havnt been able to figure it out I’m gonna try describe were it is, on the map the teleport waypoint all the way right from mt.Aocang. Then on this crescent shaped pice of land to the left of it (looks like a crescent from the map) there’s a puzzle with 4 contraptions. I’ve tried every element to get them to unlock the chest but nothing is working!!

those are geo lanturns (if thats what theyre actually called). you need to break some rocks, which should give you a floating rock that unlocks the mechanism once you get close to the "lanturn machines" with them. the rocks that you need to break are the black ones with a light emanating from the centre of the rock (they almost look like iron orn). theyre all nearby the mechanism area.
damn still got lots from this guide. but sad no tassel at all. did i really got the whole 5 refinement in the beginning or what. fml.

The crevice, as of 1.3 update is unaccessible. Shame I didn't get the treasure...

It is absolutely accessible! Just takes like an hour of climbing into a tiny hole until you finally glitch the game out enough to get in. The chest is very much still there. If you need a more detailed explanation of how to get in I'd look it up cause i dont have any pictures to show you unfortunately

It’s like a relay thing. There’s a rock that has sparkles and you have to stand on that. Then next it transfers to a dead branch and you stand on there again. Until you reach the one near the tree.
thank yoou
