Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action adventure game that has taken the gaming community by storm. MiHoYo, the publisher, has just come out with a new 1.3 update titled “All That Glitters” that runs through February 28, 2021. From new characters to fun primogem events, let’s take a look at what this new update has in store for us Genshin Impact lovers.
Xiao, a 5-star Anemo character, is now playable in the new update. To get Xiao on your team you have to win him from a wish on his special event character banner titled “Invitation to Mundane Life”. Right now through February 17,2021, his banner wish drop rate is greatly increased, making it easier to obtain him through the gacha system. If you need an Anemo element on your team build, right now is the time to try and pull Xiao before the banner ends.
Lantern Rite Festival:
The Lantern Rite Festival Even started on February 10, 2021 and lasts till the 17th. It’s first important to note that player’s must have a AR above 23 to unlock and complete Xiao’s quest. After this has been completed, the Lantern Rite Festival events will become available. During the Lantern Rite Festival, the player will have to complete three phases of events that occur over its duration. Once the challenge has been fully completed, the player gets an amazing prize of being able to claim a 4-star Liyue character of their choice. There are also special market rewards that occur during this event for Xiao that can be found here.
As excited as we are for the new character and special weapons made available during this update, none of it can be obtained without primogems. The life of a Genshin Impact player is just trying to find the best way to get primogems fast so we can make more wishes on the gacha banners. Luckily I got you covered today with an easy way to earn primogems rewards.
