The latest Genshin Impact update features two new characters, Dehya and Mika, as well as the return of the Windblume Festival.
Dehya is a five star Pyro Claymore user. She was a longtime cast member active throughout the Sumeru storyline. Dehya can place Fiery Sanctum fields that deal AoE Pyro damage when enemies take damage. She also reduces damage to other characters in the party by taking it on herself. Activating her elemental explosion will cause her to enter the Flaming Lioness state, where she can deal additional fire damage with her fists.
Mika is a four-star Cryo Polearm user. He also wields a crossbow and thus can attack enemies from a distance. Other party members will benefit from increased offensive weapons when around Mika. His elemental skill will also deal more physical damage to other party members. Its spontaneous burst heals other party members and grants the Eagle Feather condition, allowing party members to gain health from performing normal attacks.
Windblume Festival includes a variety of mini-games such as photo challenges, rhythm games and timed challenges. Participating in the festival will earn you the exclusive four-star Claymore, the Mailed Flower. You can also participate in battles through the Vibro-Crystal Verification competition. Combine transmitter crystals with receiver crystals to create an effect that you can use in a special battle. With the right strategy, you can easily defeat enemies and earn rewards.
In other updates, a limited TCG Genius Invocation mode called Heated Battle Mode is now available. Each completed Archon quest will grant you an additional Intertwined Fate. Prime Gaming members will receive Wings of the Starlit Feast when you link your Prime account to Genshin Impact.
