Summertime Odyssey

Players face many difficulties and challenges in Summertime Odyssey, which happens on a secret island archipelago. As a result of a successful performance, players are awarded Iridescent Flotsam that the players may trade for Primogems and other items in the event shop.

Resonating Visions

Like the Midsummer Island Activity, Resonating Visions has a lot of similarity to it. The players need to locate Echoing Conch shells, each with a unique snippet of information about the archipelago. After getting Echoing Conchs, you will receive a new Fischl costume, Hero’s Wit, Primogems, and other items.

Evermotion Mechanical Painting

During this contest, your task is to place mechanical parts on a board to ensure that the components work appropriately after combining them. Tasks become more challenging as the number of boards you must prepare increases later. Besides the standard Primogems, resources, and Hero’s Wit, the players can obtain a fresh piece of furniture by finishing the task.

Reminiscent Regiment

Reminiscent Regiment (a co-op event) also occurs in the upcoming update. If you and your partner have to survive, you need to fight your way to protect your boat from obstacles and beat your adversaries. If you want your ship to run continuously, you must also gather the energy coins required for its movement.

Hidden Strife

In the Dawn Winery, Diluc is partnered with the Traveler to face various perils that have sprung up along the way. This event is comparable to Phantom Flow because it has multiple battle goals. Play efficiently, and you’ll get special abilities for the upcoming encounter.

Complete this event, and you’ll be able to wear Diluc’s new five-star costume, which contains a particular impact on Diluc. Please note that this outfit can only be purchased through the in-game shop.
