This is the permanent addition to the game introduced by the Invitation Of Windblume: Version 1.4 in Genshin Impact. Though miHoYo plans to integrate new characters into the game’s roster for a time being, you can hang out with Barbara, Noelle, Chongyun, and Bennett. There is a Heartbeat Value Meter that will reflect your progress in the event; if the meter drops, you are on the verge of failing the quest.
To participate in the event, you must achieve certain missions in the game to hit a specific Adventure rank. To begin, you must conclude the Archon Quest “Prologue: Act III – Song of the Dragon and Freedom,” which is the last quest in the “Mondstadt arc” at the start of the game.
