Greetings, Travelers! It’s a great honor for me and the entire dev team to walk you through Version 2.4 Fleeting Colors in Flight, the first update of 2022 coming on January 5. As New Year is also approaching in the world of Teyvat, we’d like to invite you to Liyue’s Lantern Rite. Join Shenhe, Yun Jin, and our old friends in rebuilding the Jade Chamber, and gain rich rewards including 10 Intertwined Fates and a free four-star Liyue character of your choice.
To add to the excitement, beneath the still waters around Watatsumi Island lies a new realm. Sealed away for thousands of years, the now-awakened Enkanomiya calls out for a hero.
Rebuild and Rejoice at Lantern Rite
As the biggest annual festival in Liyue, the Lantern Rite is a time for people to gather together to honor their heroes and embrace the future with their best wishes. On the day of the festival, the night sky of Liyue Harbor will be lit up with thousands of Xiao Lanterns released from every household, followed by a grand fireworks show.
The bustling streets of Liyue will once again be lined with a variety of vendors and stalls, bringing a host of new festivities to those celebrating the holiday. You can try your hand at making sparkling fireworks or participate in the popular lantern riddle-guessing event.
In addition to the grand celebrations, the Jade Chamber will also be given a new lease of life at this time. This magnificent airborne palace was destroyed to defeat the ancient god and sea monster Osial during the past Archon Quest. As Ningguang and many others are busy reconstructing the Jade Chamber, you can also pitch in to help retrieve lost items. Some can be salvaged with the Waverider, while others need to be retrieved from the Treasure Hoarders. You can hunt down elite Treasure Hoarders in their encampments, or intercept their transport balloons that are transferring supplies at sea.
Reconnect with the People in Liyue
Among those rebuilding the Jade Chamber, you will meet our new characters Shenhe and Yun Jin, as well as many old friends in Liyue. Some also get a new look with the upcoming update.
Often mistaken as an adeptus, our new five-star character Shenhe actually comes from a family of exorcists. However, Shenhe had been raised by Cloud Retainer as her disciple at an early age, and she does not understand the intricacies of human relations nor the ways of the world. In combat, Shenhe wields the power of Cryo and a polearm. She can summon a Talisman Spirit and become a strong support to boost the team’s damage. Both Shenhe’s Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst can help her party deal increased Cryo damage. With her Elemental Skill and Passive Talent, you can further choose to boost all nearby party members’ Elemental Skill and Burst damage, or their Normal, Plunging, and Charged Attack damage.
Our next new character Yun Jin is a four-star Geo polearm user, and she can be a strong support to those who favor Normal Attacks. Her Elemental Skill can shield
