Windtrace can actually be played either with random players or with friends
The Windtrace multiplayer Event is back in Genshin Impact 2.4 for a new rerun, here’s how you can make “private rooms” to play with your friends instead of random players.
What’s Windtrace in Genshin Impact?
Windtrace is a hide-and-seek Event you can play in Genshin Impact with four players. Three players act as the Rebels who need to hide, while one player is the Hunter. Each player has specific Skills to hide or to localize the others. You can select and change your Skills at the beginning of each round.
In the lore, Windtrace is a society game based on the rebellion of the commoners against the nobles in the history of Mondstadt.

How to play Windtrace with your friends
In order to play with your friends, you first need to join their World or ask them to join yours. Open the main menu, go to the Co-Op Mode menu, and then change your World Permissions to Join After Approval. Now wait for your friends to join, or join their own World.
Note that if you can’t access the Co-Op Mode menu, it means you have an ongoing Quest you need to complete first. The game should tell you which Quest it is when trying to access the menu.
If you start Windtrace without being in the same World as your friends, auto match will activate and you will only be able to play with random players.
Once your three friends and yourself are in the same World, you can start playing Windtrace by talking to the NPC called Gygax right near the Teleport Waypoint in Mondstadt. Keep in mind only players above Adventurer Rank 20 can access Windtrace.
Lastly, note that you can only get rewards when playing with random players. This is a typical cheating countermeasure to avoid rigged matches with friends letting each other win. As a side note, miHoYo confirmed that this time Mona and Ayaka’s special Sprinting Talents won’t activate in Windtrace.
