Genshin Impact 2.4 marks the return of what is probably the best event in the short story of miHoYo's gacha game. The Lantern Rite event celebrates the Chinese New Year with a festival full of lights, food, and gifts.
The main celebration takes place in Liyue. Data miners indicate that one of the favorite features of last year's Genshin Impact Lantern Rite is back - Travelers will obtain a 4-star free star for free!
Here is everything we know so far about the Genshin Impact Fleeting Colors in Light event.
Genshin Impact 2.4 is going live on January 5, 2022. However, players will most likely have to wait a month for the Lantern Rite to hit the game, as the Chinese New Year celebration starts in February.
According to data miners, Fleeting Colors in Light is the name of the Genshin Impact 2.4 Lantern Rite event, and it will be divided into 4 sections:
- Smelting fireworks
- Waverider mini-games and mob camps in Guyun Stone Forest
- An event similar to Golden Apple Archipielago
- Wondrous Shadows
- Mini-games similar to Dragon Spine Special Training
- Boss domain with a 3-head hydra
- Combat challenge against a boss that looks like Osial
There will be three types of currencies used in the Afterglow Market: Firework Coins, Hydra Emblem, and another yet to be determined.
Stand by Me 2.0
Stand by Me was an event in the Lantern Rite event of Genshin Impact 1.3. During this event, travelers could acquire one of the 4-stars Liyue Characters.
To obtain this free character, players have to collect enough Festive Fever.
For Fleeting Colors in Light, players can redeem one of the 4-star Liyue characters in exchange for 1000 Firework Coins & 1000 Hydra Boss Coins.
For those not familiar with Genshin Impact Roster, these are all 4-star Liyue characters:
- Ningguang (Geo)
- Xiangling (Pyro)
- Yanfei (Pyro)
- Xingqiu (Hydro)
- Xinyan (Pyro)
- Chongyun (Cryo)
- Beidou (Electro)
According to leaks, Yun Jin, the upcoming 4-star Geo Polearm user, will also be part of the pool of characters that players can obtain. Travelers can increase the number of constellations of their favorite character or get an entirely new character.
Besides one 4-star free Liyue character, Genshin Impact 2.4 is releasing two new skins:
- Ningguang's skin (Orchid's Evening Gown) - Free
- Keqing's skin (Opulent Splendor) - Genesis Crystals
