There are weapons and artifacts to grind for, abilities and character combinations to master, and a range of bosses to defeat.

With so much to see and do it can feel overwhelming. That's why we've got you covered with a huge and ever-increasing range of guides to help you get the most out of Genshin Impact.

Eligibility Requirements

Vultar Volans Chapter

  • Alhaitham's Story Quest

  • Permanent

  • N/A

  • 3 x Story Keys

All event end dates are inclusive and events will end at server reset time at the end of the specified day.

You can now 'quick start' and still do events without completing the eligibility quests, although you still need to meet the Adventure Rank requirements. However, you will likely meet characters without context and may need to clear other quests if they include the same characters. All events have a range of standard rewards including Primogems, Mora, Crowns of Insight, Hero's Wit, and Enhancement Ore. Many also offer talent books and other ascension materials usually only found in domains.
