December 1, 2021

Here are some tips to help you defeat the Fellflower in the new Rise of the Fellflower challenge in Shadows Amidst Snowstorms, the latest Genshin Impact Event.

First, note that you’ll need to have completed the first quest of the Event, The Snowy Past, before acceding to this part. Be sure to check our dedicated guide if you need help.

Next, you’ll need to have completed the second story quest, which is just a succession of dialogues and cutscenes. So you shouldn’t need any particular help.

How to defeat the Fellflower in Genshin Impact Shadows Amidst Snowstorms Rise of the Fellflower

Destroying the Arcane Fruits

The Fellflower has as Shield you first need to destroy in order to be able to deal damage to it. You can destroy its shield faster by destroying the Arcane Fruits it summons. They will be displayed on your map with golden icons (like main objectives).

Beware of floating Arcane Fruits

Note that floating Arcane Fruits can also spawn. So it’s best to bring a ranged character with you. If you’re finding the fight too difficult, Barbara is perfect for this job as she’ll be able to hit those floating Arcane Fruits besides healing your party.

Picking up Arcane Essences dropped by the Fellflower

During the fight, the Fellflower will regularly drop Arcane Essences around itself. You need to pick them up (like how you pick any other item) or else it will use the Essences to regenerate its Shield. When the Arcane Essences drop, it’s best to focus on picking these up and to stop your offensive.

Arcane Essence

However, it’s important to note that picking Arcane Essence will make your characters gradually lose HP. Just like Corrosion inflicted by RIfthounds, this ignores your Shield. Moreover, this is an Event Challenge, so the game will switch to Co-op mode, meaning you can’t pause the game. I suggest equipping the quick heal Gadget and be sure to eat your buff effect foods before the fight.

Achievments and rewards in the Genshin Impact Rise of the Fellflower Sub-Event


As far as I noticed, the Fellflower and its Arcane Fruits only summons two Cryo Slimes at most per run. Though there might be more spawning if you wait. In any case, this means you’ll need to fight the boss at least two times to get all the Event achievements.

Besides “Defeat 4 monsters created by the Arcane Fruits” all of these are achievements that you’ll unlock naturally as you repeat the fight.
