The previous Genshin Impact 2.3 livestream has provided a preview of the Shadows Amidst Snowstorms event. The livestream features the new character rerun banner, abyss boss, and a walkthrough of the winter training event. One of the most anticipated parts of the event is that players will be able to build a snowman and customize it with components collected from the training. Players must be at least Adventure Rank 20 and have completed prerequisite story quests to participate in the event.
Genshin Impact: Shadows Amidst Snowstorms Winter Training
In agility training, players must race through a course and complete it within a certain time limit while collecting Insignias of Conquest and Insignias of Adventure. Some Insignias of Adventure will be hidden in the area while Insignias of Conquest appears only at a specific time. The area in the agility training is surrounded by ice obstacles and buffs known as Blessings which could help players of Genshin Impact in navigating the course. A Galespring Blessing provides a jump boost which is useful in reaching Insignias in high places, while an Ironskin Blessing aids in destroying nearby ice obstacles and obtaining Insignias contained inside it. Players\’ earned event points depend on the number of Insignias collected and the time it took to complete the course.
After completing the agility training, players will proceed on the tracker training. In this winter training session, Genshin Impact Pyro characters must be included in the party as the goal of the tracker training is to melt ice crystal piles. Players must look for Ice Crystal Piles within the area and attack it with Pyro damage to melt. At times, there can be enemies surrounding Ice Crystal Piles that players must look out for or get rid of to complete the training session successfully. Some Ice Crystal Piles may also contain snowman components that Genshin Impact players can use to cosplay up their snowman.
The final phase of the Genshin Impact 2.3 winter training is combat training. To provide an intensive gaming experience, each training camp is installed with a Lure. The Lure will begin at a \”Source Cold\” state and emit cold air increasing the character\’s Sheer Cold bar. It can also give buffs at fixed intervals to nearby enemies. Surrounding the Lure are mechanisms which when activated change the Lure into a \”Heat Source\” state. This state can be triggered by attacking the mechanism in the training area while carrying Scarlet Quartz. This not only decreases the accumulated Sheer Cold but also restores the character\’s Energy at fixed intervals and deal additional AoE Pyro damage to opponents when players carry a Scarlet Quartz while in combat.
Genshin Impact: Shadows Amidst Snowstorms Snowman
To reference the theme of the season, players may build a snowman on Genshin Impact\’s Dragonspine region after collecting snowman components. The anatomy of the snowman consists of the head, hands, scarf, eyes, and nose. Available component design for each part may vary depending on what players have gathered. Snowman components may be collected from the winter training and purchased from the event shop. It is also possible for players to exchange their snowman components with friends. After the Genshin Impact Shadows Amidst Snowstorms event has ended, players may bring their snowman bases and components to their Serenitea Pot for decorations.
