Genius Invokation is a trading card game (TCG) based on a traditional game from Sumeru.

There are more than 200 cards divided into:

  • Characters
  • Talents
  • Weapons
  • Support (NPCs & Locations)
  • Artifact Cards
  • Event Cards

The cards will be available for free by defeating other Characters and NPCs in matches. The Character cards are the most important as they are the only ones to attack and receive DMG.

We can expect more cards to be released in future patches, as only 27 characters from the 58 in the roster of Genshin Impact are included in the first batch of Cards.

Genius Invokation will allow players to compete with other travelers in the first PvP mode in the game. However, these matches will not grant any reward.

New Weapons

We are receiving two new weapons in the next update. One is the Signature Weapon of Scaramouche and the second is a Free 4-star Sword as the reward of the main event.
