What are Golden Cicada Shells Used for in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty

Wo Long Golden Cicada shells are of no use to you in the game. However, there is a particular character who would like to collect them. You’ll find this character in the hidden village. He will be standing on the rooftop of a big tower-like house. The one below which you’ve found your first Golden Cicada Shell. Use the vines around the tower to climb to the top. Just like all other dwellers of the village, this one is named Hermit of Tianzhu as well. Check out our images below so that you know who’s the guy.

Once you find him, speak to him. He’ll explain that he wants them because he is “after the secrets of immortality”. He’s collecting these golden-glowing cicadas to “transcend death”. And whenever you bring them to him, he’ll give you “something valuable” in return. In total, there are 20 of these scattered across various levels. Read on to learn where to find all 20 of them. Of course, there will be spoilers.
