Here’s everything we know about each event in Genshin Impact 3.5:

Genshin Impact Windblume Breath Event

You can visit our Windblume’s Breath Challenges and Rewards hub for more details.

Windblume’s Breath begins Friday, March 3 and ends Monday, March 20. You must be at least Adventure Rank 18 and have completed the Prologue, Act 3 ‘Song of the Dragon and Freedom’ Archon Quest to participate.

Windblume’s Breath will be the main event taking place during Phase 1 of patch 3.5, and will feature many mini-events as part of this romantic Mondstadt festival.

Collei, Tighnari, and Cyno travel to Mondstadt from Sumeru, with Collei being the most prominent character in the event’s story.

As for the Windblume festival activities, there will be three mini-games:

  • Floral Search
  • breeze ballads
  • happy snapshots

Floral Pursuit is a time trial minigame where you must collect balloons to increase your score while avoiding obstacles. There are multiple areas for each challenge and you progress to each new area by traveling through a festive floral ring. You can play Floral Pursuit alone or in cooperative mode.

Ballads of Breeze is a standard rhythm minigame where you earn points by accurately playing each song. This time you can choose from three instruments, altering the sound of each song as you play it.

Breezy Snapshots is another photography challenge. As usual, you must travel to the correct location and fulfill the task requirements, then take a photo with your camera to get rewards.

All the rewards you can get from the Windblume’s Breath event include:

  • A free 4-star Claymore (mailed flower)

We return to The Chasm in Liyue for the Vibro-Crystal check, where we will have to combine crystals to obtain benefits for two group lineups to face combat challenges. Don’t worry if you don’t have two high-level teams, as there will also be test characters to choose from.

Genshin Impact Mushroom Mechanicus Event

The Fungus Mechanicus event continues the story of Fungi introducing Layla to Sumeru, but this time the mechanics are completely different.

Instead of training your mushrooms and taking them to fight regularly in arenas, you must take charge of them by launching attacks from a bird’s eye view, like in a real-time strategy game. You will still be able to use each mushroom’s special abilities, but it will be from a different perspective.

Bongo-Head and Twirly Whirly also make a triumphant return, but we’ll have to wait and see if Layla also returns for the event.

The rewards you can get from the Fungus Mechanicus event include:

  • Primogems
  • Blackberry
  • Mystical Enhancement Ore
  • Weapon Ascension Materials
  • Character EXP Materials
  • Sanctifying Anointing

You must have at least Adventure Rank 20 to create condiments and Adventure Rank 28 in addition to completing the ‘Idle Teapot Talk’ world quest to be able to cook the corresponding dishes and invite the character to try them.

This returning event takes a trip to Sumeru!

For Spices from the West: Northerly Search, you must participate in a mini-game where you add the correct ingredients in the correct order to overcome challenges. You only have a limited number of tries before you fail, so you have to be quick and pay close attention to the instructions.

Once you’ve made a seasoning, you can add it to your own dishes, creating “fragrant” meals and enhancing them. You can give these dishes to characters in Serenitea Pot to increase their Companion EXP. You will receive a different response from different characters, depending on the dish you give them.

The rewards you can get from this Western Spice event include:

  • Primogems
  • Blackberry
  • Mystical Enhancement Ore
  • Character EXP Materials
  • Materials to level up talent
