The Genshin Impact Version 2.1 livestream revealed several new events coming to the game. One of these, the Hyakunin Ikki Fighting Tournament, will see players creating teams of Genshin Impact characters to take on enemies under a time limit.
Genshin Impact developer miHoYo is known to incorporate different gameplay mechanics for its events. During the Genshin Impact 2.1 livestream, it revealed three small events: First, players will have the opportunity to catch legendary fish in the Lunar Realm event. Next, the Spectral Secrets event, similar to the previous Vishaps and Where to Find Them event, allows players to send characters on expeditions to obtain different rewards. The final event, Hyakunin Ikki, is a unique tournament where players can participate in team battles.
The Hyakunin Ikki Fighting Tournament will see players pair two characters together to form teams and defeat enemies. A total of six different teams is required for battle, so players will need to use 12 characters in total. Players can choose characters within their own account or use Trial characters provided during the event. The event will also feature exclusive Configure Skills, where allies can equip two Garyuu Arts to increase their performance.
Genshin Impact Hyakunin Ikki Tournament: Event Strategies & Rewards
Due to the limitation of having only two characters for each team, players should concentrate on pairing allies based on the Genshin Impact\’s best Elemental Reactions. They\’ll also need to focus in order to avoid staying on the field for too long, as characters will lose their buffs once they go over the time limit. During battle, players should switch through their teams by defeating enemies or using the Relay Ability system to counteract any one team\’s disadvantages. Additionally, switching teams and eliminating enemies in the Hyakunin Ikki Fighting Tournament contributes to a Fervor gauge. Obtaining specific amounts of Fervor grants additional bonuses for characters in combat.
As with many events in Genshin Impact, the Hyakunin Ikki Tournament will offer various different rewards. Players can obtain Primogems, Moras, Talent Materials, Hero\’s Wit to increase character levels, and Mystic Enhancement Ore to strengthen weapons. They will also have the opportunity to obtain an event-exclusive Namecard in commemoration.
The Hyakunin Ikki Fighting Tournament is expected to arrive in September, after Genshin Impact\’s 2.1 drops at the end of August. As miHoYo releases more events, it will be exciting to see what new mechanics it continues to introduce to the game.
