Genshin Impact 1.4 Developer Update Notes
We hope you all had a great time exploring and participating in Liyue Harbor’s Lantern Rite. As the chill of winter in Teivat begins to fade away, giving way to spring, we would like to share an inside look at the traditional annual festival in Mondsstadt – the Windblume festival. As the beauty of spring fills the city, we hope that everyone will join the people of Mondsstadt in a heartfelt celebration of freedom and life.
All travelers who have reached Adventure Rank 20 or higher and have completed the Archon’s Song of the Dragon and Freedom quest will be invited to join in a heartfelt celebration of the Windy Slogan Festival. Throughout the festival, there will be many mini-games with many awards and prizes. Players will even have a special opportunity to spend time with Barbara, Noel, Bennett and Cheongyun, with the ability to relive different endings and memories depending on your choices and interactions with each character.
A time for special memories
As swirling dandelions fill the warm spring air, the people of Mondstadt come together to celebrate the Windblume festival. The history of the festival dates back to the liberation of Mondstadt two thousand six hundred years ago.
However, as the traditions of the Windblume Festival have been passed down from generation to generation, the festival has gradually evolved into a cultural celebration of romance and passion. Couples and birds in love will seize this opportunity as a chance to have a good time together, and the locals of Mondstadt often recommend Cape Oath as the perfect place to confess their feelings and make romantic vows. During this time of love and freedom, travelers will also have a unique opportunity to spend a special time with Barbara, Noel, Bennett and Chongyun. Player choices and interactions with characters can lead to different endings, with each actual ending rewarding players with a Video Meeting Memories artwork.
Holiday Challenges await
In preparation for this year’s celebration, the Knights of Favonius and the Adventurer’s Guild have put together the most festive mini-games the city has ever seen, with a variety of activities that await travelers and locals alike in Mondstadt. Most Windblume minigames will support both single-player and co-op, so whether you play alone, with a group of friends, or with this special person, the games are sure to leave fun and lasting memories. for all that participate.
The Knights of Favonius hosted three main mini-games this year: Bullseye Balloons, Floral Freefall, and Ballads of Breeze. Each mini-game will have four different difficulty levels to test your archery, gliding and ballad skills. After completing mini-games, players will receive rewards and a certain number of tickets for the holiday tour (rewards for mini-games can only be obtained once in single player mode). Tickets for the Holiday Tour can be redeemed in the Event Store for Abundant Talent Leveling Materials and two new exclusive gadgets: the Windblume Commemorative Balloon and the Windsong Lyre.
If you’re looking for a more challenging challenge, then you can try Strange Wonderland, a special domain recently opened and refurbished by the Adventurers’ Guild as a festival event. Unlike other event minigames, Wonderland of Kind is a series of challenges that require the mind and strength of even the most seasoned adventurer. Upon entering the Land of Strange Wonders, players will be faced with three random challenge scenarios. Based on their performance in Randomized Challenges, players will receive buffs to use in the final boss fight. Upon completing Strange Wonderland, players will receive Unusual Collaboration Coupons that can be exchanged for Weapon Ascension Materials and the new Ode to Windy 4-Star Bow.
All this and much more awaits players in version 1.4. We will give you the opportunity to explore and discover everything that the Windblume Festival has to offer.
Continue your journey with Dineslife and Rosary
In addition to all the events in the upcoming update, the Wanderer will also continue his story, continuing his investigation of the Order of the Abyss with Dainsleaf “Keeper of the Branches”. As the story unfolds, players will find themselves in a completely new domain, where they will discover the desecrated Statue of Seven and meet a powerful new enemy – the Herald of the Abyss. Finally, players will begin uncovering the secrets of Teivat’s first ruin guard in Stormterror’s Lair.
In version 1.4 we will be adding Thorny Benevolence Rosary as a new 4-star playable character. The Rosary is the sister of the Church of Favonia that players may have already met during their adventures with Albedo in Dragonthorn. Possessing cryovision, Rosaria is a powerful polearm wielder with the elemental skill that allows her to instantly move behind an enemy’s back, penetrating and slashing them to deal cryo damage. Her Elemental Burst allows her to attack with a powerful blow, dealing massive cryo damage and summoning an ice spear that continuously deals cryo damage to nearby enemies.
Last but not least, we would like to share some of the adjustments and optimizations coming in version 1.4 that will allow travelers to experience a more fun and enjoyable journey. First, since the original resin limit was previously increased from 120 to 160, the 1.4 update will allow travelers to have up to five condensed resins in their inventory. In addition, the new version will provide travelers with the option to downgrade their world tier to better suit their needs in solo and co-op modes.
