Xiao Becomes Playable – New Featured Gacha Banners With Xiao and Keqing

Xiao will be obtainable in Version 1.3. Xiao is an Anemo and Polearm user, voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Kirito in Sword Art Online). In English, Xiao is voiced by Laila Berzins, who funnily also voiced a SAO character, Fanatio in the Alicization arc. Xiao can most notably use his plunging attack without taking fall damage. The higher he attacks from, the bigger the Plunging Attack DMG. When triggering his Elemental Burst, Xiao constantly looses HP but all his attacks turn into Anemo damage and are greatly amplified.

The new Xiao gacha banner will start on February 3, and a Keqing gacha banner will start on February 17. Note that Keqing is already obtainable in the permanent Standard banner. This is the first time we’ll get a featured limited banner for an already obtainable Five star character.

Lantern Rite And Smaller Events Coming in Version 1.3

A list of all the smaller events which will happen through Version 1.3 of Genshin Impact, All That Glitters, was published. During the Lantern Rite period, players will be able to get 10 Interwined Fates via daily login. Overall, completing the events will grant you over 1600 Primogems, materials including a Crown of Insight, and the four star Liyue character of your choice. Players will first need to complete the Xiao Character Quest before being able to participate in the Lantern Rite events.

The Lantern Rite will be divided into three stages. With more quests and rewards unlocking each time you progress through the next stage. The Xiao Market will have new goods at each stage too. The Xiao Market uses special event currency, Peace Talismans, obtainable in Theater Mechanicus.

Theater Mechanicus

One of the new events available with the Lantern Rite is Theater Mechanicus, a tower-defense like minigame. You can also play it in online co-op multiplayer. Theater Mechanicus gameplay was showcased at the 22:22 mark of the English stream:

Photo Event – Five Flushes of Fortune

One of the Lantern Rite’s smaller events is the Five Flushes of Fortune event.  First, players will obtain the Kurious Kamera from NPC Ji Tong in the Lantern Rite area. Next, we’ll be asked to take photos of objects of a specific color each day, like a certain plant. We’ll have ten chances a day to take photos. The first rewards of this event are random photos, each with a color. If you complete a set with five different colors, you can exchange them for rewards, including Primogems. You’ll be able to exchange photos with friends if you lack a certain color to complete your set.

New Event – Ley Line Overflow – Double Rewards From Ley Line Blossoms

During a certain period, three times a day, we’ll get double rewards from Blossom of Wealth (Mora) and Blossom of Revelation (EXP tickets). Note that the screenshot is a placeholder, the event is unlikely to actually last thirty days.
