The newest event in Genshin Impact invites players to join the Arataki Gang of Inazuma in hosting a celebration. Unlike the battle-heavy event, Genshin Impact’s \”Realms of Guile and War,\” “The Almighty Arataki Great and Glorious Drumalong Festival” requires players to test their rhythm ability. This event will be active until July 4, 2022, at 03:59 Server Time.
In order to participate in this event, players must be at least Adventure Rank 30 or above. Players must also complete “Ritou Escape Plan” from the Archon Quest: “Chapter II: Act I – The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia.” This is the quest that allows players access to the region of Inazuma, so it makes sense that it would need to be unlocked first.

Players will receive a letter from the Arataki Gang, inviting them to celebrate a festival honoring Kuki Shinobu’s graduation along with other missed milestones. “The Almighty Arataki Great and Glorious Drumalong Festival” allows players to drum along to a set of songs. Thanks to a personal invitation from Genshin Impact’s 5-star Geo-user Itto, players will be able to celebrate the festival with a new instrument.
Genshin Impact: How to Perform Songs on Arataki’s Great and Glorious Drum
This event is located on Amakane Island, as indicated by a music note icon. Players can later teleport directly to the event once the introductory quest is complete. To begin the event, players will need to speak to the NPC Genta, who acts as the Arataki Drumalong Festival Welcome Ambassador. There will be a total of seven playable songs unlocked over the course of the event. For each song, players will be able to choose from three difficulties: Normal, Hard, and Pro. Completing each song on a higher level will automatically unlock the rewards for all the difficulties below it. This event features theme songs from familiar characters such as Genshin Impact’s Pyro-user Yoimiya.
After selecting a song and difficulty for the \”Glorious Drumalong Festival\” event in Genshin Impact, players will be able to start the performance. Players will need to strike the Decision Line as the notes line up in order to earn points. Timing plays a large role in this event, and it is important to pay close attention to the audio as well as the visuals. Yellow notes will need to be pressed while purple notes will need to be held during the entire length of the note and then released on time. With each correct note, players will form combos that can multiply earned points.

For added accommodations, players can adjust the volume of the beat note sound. Additionally, they can enable and modify the calibration to help with any delays or lag as well as adjust the note falling speed. This will help them adjust the drums to their unique playing habits. These settings are meant to be utilized, much like the other quality-of-life updates in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact: Creating Music Scores In Glorious Drumalong Festival Event
As the event progresses, players will be able to edit the available music scores and create up to two custom music scores per song. The Note Editor will be unlocked. To begin editing music scores, players can navigate to “Edit Beatmap” in the song selection interface. They can then choose between Normal Editing and Advanced Editing.
With Normal Editing Mode, players will not be able to move or delete notes. However, they will be able to add new notes of their choosing as the music is playing. Clicking the input buttons will add notes to the corresponding position at the time played. Holding down notes will add the long purple notes. This mode works well for those who are interested in creating new scores with some guidance.

With Advanced Editing Mode, users can add, move, delete, or edit notes with more freedom than Normal Editing Mode. This may interest anyone who enjoys full freedom in customizing content such as Genshin Impact’s Serenitea Pot. In this mode, players are given three Reference Lines: Baseline, Rhythm Line, and Timeline. The Baseline shows the progress of the song, while the Rhythm Line shows the system’s recommended point position. The Timeline separates the beats of the score and adapts according to the player’s edits.
These music scores can be shared with other players as long as the creator is able to successfully complete them. This is similar to the Divine Ingenuity event in that players must be able to complete their creation in order to eliminate the chance of impossible challenges. Players can also challenge the music scores created by other players after navigating to “Find Composition” in the event menu. This way, players can interact with others similar to Co-Op in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact 2.7: Glorious Drumalong Festival Event Rewards
In order to obtain all possible rewards in the \”Glorious Drumalong Festival\” event, players must reach “Dulcem” rank in Pro difficulty for all seven songs. They can either choose to do each difficulty separately, or they can begin with Pro as this will allow them to claim all the rewards from the difficulties below it. For those only interested in Primogems, they must reach “Dulcem” rank in Normal difficulty for all songs.
Players will be able to receive the following rewards in total: 420 Primogems, 300,000 Mora, 25 Hero’s Wit, 8 Adventurer’s Experience, 42 Mystic Enhancement Ore, 6 Jeweled Branch of a Distant Sea, 6 Narukami’s Joy, and 6 Mask of the Tiger’s Bite. They will also be able to earn 1,500 EXP for Genshin Impact’s Battle Pass upon obtaining a Dulcem rating on “Termination of Desires” on Hard or Pro difficulty.
Players will also receive the gadget, Arataki’s Great and Glorious Drum. This means that players will be able to continue performing with the Drum even after the event concludes. Similar instruments have been obtained in previous events, such as the Windsong Lyre from the “Invitation of Windblume” event and the Floral Zither from the “Tuned to the World’s Sounds” event. With this souvenir from “The Almighty Arataki Great and Glorious Drumalong Festival”, Genshin Impact players will be able to play the Glorious Drum whenever they desire.
