During Genshin Impact Version 2.6’s \”Hues of the Violet Garden\” event, players can get 4-star Hydro user Xingqiu for free. Genshin Impact\’s Xingqiu is widely considered to be one of the strongest 4-star characters in the game, especially in the Sub-DPS role. Players will need to take part in the Irodori Festival’s mini-events, to complete all of the \”Friendship in Writing\” requirements. Once a player has met all of the \”Friendship in Writing\” criteria, they can invite Xingqiu to join their team. There are some restrictions, however, including multiple pre-requisite Story Quests and a required Adventure Rank of 30 or above.
Genshin Impact’s Irodori Festival comprises four gameplay modes which will be unlocked periodically throughout the event. Players will have to complete the corresponding act of the \”True Tales of the Violet Garden\” quest before they can participate in the event\’s mini-games. \”The Moon and Stars Inscribe\” sees players gain inspiration for poetry. \”Theater Mechanicus\” is Genshin Impact\’s take on tower defense, a recurring mini-game where players use elemental mechanisms to defeat enemies. \”Clash of Lone Blades\” grants the Traveler an all-new Parry mechanic. Lastly, \”The Floral Courtyard\” puts players\’ floristry skills to the test, creating floral arrangements around a theme.
There are some pre-requisites Genshin Impact players must meet before they can participate in the \”Hues of the Violet Garden\” event. Firstly, players must be Adventure Rank 30 or above so, unfortunately, newer Genshin Impact players may not be eligible to participate. Additionally, players must have already completed the \”Ritou Escape Plan\” part of the Archon Quest: \”Chapter II: Act I – The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia\”. Players who have completed all of Sangonomiya Kokomi, Ayato, and Raiden Shogun’s Story Quests will get the best experience out of the event, however, completing these Story Quests beforehand isn’t mandatory.
How To Unlock Xingqiu For Free In Genshin Impact 2.6
Genshin Impact players will have to participate in all of the Irodori Festival’s mini-games in order to unlock Xingqiu. Each of the “Friendship in Writing” criteria required to unlock Xingqiu can be achieved by participating in one of the Hues of the Violet Garden’s four mini-events:
Complete the “parting”-themed poemObtain a score of 1,500 in Springtide Advent: Show of ForceAchieve victory in “Versus the Mightiest Warrior!” on Serious difficulty or higherComplete the fourth “floral theme”
After participating in the Irodori Festival’s mini-events and completing all of the “Friendship in Writing” criteria, Genshin Impact players will finally be able to invite Xingqiu to join their team. It\’s worth noting that Xingqiu can only be redeemed this way once, so players cannot obtain him multiple times using the same method. The \”Hues of the Violet Garden\” event ends on April 25, so Genshin Impact players who want to get Xingqiu for free during the event will need to meet the eligibility criteria, and complete all of the “Friendship in Writing” criteria, before then.
