This year’s Lantern Rite is almost upon us, and with it comes a slew of quests and rewards. If you played during last year’s Lantern Rite, some of these quests and prizes will be familiar to you. And if they are, you know this is an exciting time to be a Genshin Impact player!

When does the Lantern Rite begin?

Genshin Impact’s Lantern Rite will begin on January 25th, 2022. Alongside the new event, two new Character Event Wish banners will become available, with Ganyu and Zhongli both rerunning. The Weapon Event Wish banner will also see some returning 5-star weapons, Amos’ Bow and Vortex Vanquisher.

Fleeting Colours in Flight

During this new event quest, players must complete challenge quests to obtain various currencies. These currencies can be used to redeem different rewards, including one free 4-star Liyue character of your choice. If you choose to redeem a character you already have, you’ll receive a Constellation for them. If you choose a character you have at C6, you will receive 5 Masterless Starglitter.

During the event, if you complete all the conditions for “The Moon’s Comely Brow,” you will obtain Ningguang’s new skin “Orchid’s Evening Gown” for free. It’s a gorgeous navy blue dress that players won’t want to miss out on. However, if you do miss out on receiving it, worry not! It will become available for purchase (yes, with real money) after the event is over, just like Barbara’s skin.

This event will begin on January 25th, 2022. To begin the event quest, you must be Adventure Rank 28 or above. You must also have completed the Archon Quest “Chapter I: Act III – A New Star Approaches” and Archon Quest Interlude Chapter: Act I – “The Crane Returns on the Wind.”

May Fortune Find You

This is a daily login event. Each day, players can acquire various goodies such as precious Intertwined Fates, Mora, Hero’s Wit and Mystic Enhancement Ore. In total, players will receive 10 Intertwined Fates, which is enough for one 10 pull on the Character Event Wish banner – and one guaranteed 4-star character or weapon. This event will begin on January 25th, 2022.

Overall, much like last year, this upcoming Lantern Rite is absolutely filled to the brim with content. The rewards are plentiful, and you’re sure to be kept busy with the different quests. The wait is not long now!
