Lantern Rite Festival kicked off a few hours ago, Genshin Impacts’ newest event for Xiao. This event seems to have some of the most content that any event has had to offer, with there being two new mini-game options, a bunch of new quests, and a 3-stage event shop.
The quests are relatively easy with the tasks you need to do, they also teach you the basic mechanics for the new mini-games that are available. The payers favorite part of this festival is that it cost 0 RESIN to part-take in this event.
Which is perfect so that it doesn’t interrupt your grinding for artifacts, which takes forever trying to get decent ones, we can address that in a different article.
Lantern Rite Festival Quest
This new event last from February 10th, to the beginning of March.
The first few quest teaches you the mechanics of the festival, running around creating lanterns, and giving them to people as invitations, then turning around and using the extra lanterns to teach you the basics of each new mini-games.
The final quest could lead up to you inviting Xiao to come to the festival with the traveler, which if that is the case it would make all romantic anime fans swoon. Due to Xiao’s large fan base already It would be a good selling point to push for pulling the main banner character while he’s still around.
The Lantern Rite Festival introduces: Theater Mechanic, the newest mini-game in Genshin Impact. It makes for a really fun tower defense game. In this mode you are set to build towers and defend a portal from all the in game mobs that run towards it.
The mobs will ignore the player and b-line straight for the exit, which makes players have to build towers to stop and kill them before a certain number can reaches the exit.
A key feature is that players can not do damage during this event to mobs, though they can apply a crowd control to hold them in place and or stop them from getting to the end. Characters like Sucrose and Jean shine in this game mode, with the sheer amount of crowd control can single handedly hold a lane.
Theater Mechanic Strat
My personal favorite way to build the tower defense is using a 6 piece set of 2-hydro towers, 2-cryo towers, 1 electric tower and 1 recovery mark tower.
The whole set up of this is to keep mobs permanently frozen so that they will die by the electro tower in the recover mark, to gain the max amount of points you can from the recovery mark. The picture demonstrated above is a good showing on what it looks like.
This strategy also works really well for early game because of how flexible starting off can be, each of the towers have really good synergy.
This is one of the best shops we have had during an event. The sheer amount of items you can receive from participating in an event is astronomical. It is upgrade ascension material heaven.
Which comes at a perfect time, with a lot of players running out of materials after the release of Ganyu, Zhongli, and now Xiao; players really need some time to restock on basic the materials.
It also allows for players to purchase all the rewards in the 3-tier shop. The higher levels unlocking as the event progresses.
