Catch The Wind Event Updates
October 12th Update
|Changes||Travelers who have already unlocked Gnostic Hymn need only exchange the remaining difference in cost in order to unlock Gnostic Chorus|
A change was added to the Catch the Wind event affecting some Battle-Pass related Microtransactions. This allows players who have purchased Gnostic Hymn to get Gnostic Chorus at a lower price. Whereas before you might have needed to spend 30 dollars, you'll now only have to spend 20 in total to get both special packs.
Catch The Wind Event
|Duration||Release - November 10th, 04:59|
The Catch the Wind event is the first major Battle Pass event in Genshin Impact. It constitutes the first "BP Period" listed on your Battle Pass. This means that all the missions in the bottom-most tab of the Battle Pass need to be completed by November 10th!Check Out The Full Battle Pass Guide Here
By reaching Level 30 BP during this event, you can choose one 4★ weapon from a total of 5 options.
|The Black Sword||Justice|
Increase DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks by 20%. Additionally, regenerates 60% of ATK as HP when Normal and Charged Attack score a CRIT Hit. This effect can occur once every 5s.
Every 4s a character is on the field, they will deal 6% more DMG and take 3% more DMG. This effect has a maximum of 5 stacks and will not be reset if the character leaves the field, but will be reduced by 1 stack when the character takes DMG.
|Solar Pearl||Solar Shine|
Normal Attack hits increase Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG by 20% for 6s. Likewise, Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst hits increase Normal Attack DMG by 20% for 6s.
|Viridescent Hunt||Verdant Wind|
Upon hit, Normal and Aimed Shot have a 50% chance to generate a Cyclone, which will continuously attract surrounding enemies, dealing 40% of ATK as DMG to these enemies every 0.5s for 4s. This effect can only occur once every 14s.
If are there at least 2 enemies nearby, ATK increased by 16% and DEF increased by 16%. If there are less than 2 enemies nearby, ATK is increased by 24%.
Which Weapon Should You Pick?
Given that you can only choose one of the above 5 weapons, you're going to have to make a somewhat difficult decision. What you choose will ultimately come down to what characters and weapons you already own, but if you need more guidance we've put together a guide to help you decide which weapon to pick!Check Out Which BP Weapon You Should Pick
Elemental Crucible Quests
The Elemental Crucible event also brought with it 3 new Battle Pass missions. These missions expire along with the Catch the Wind event, so you'll have until November 10th to complete them. These 3 missions alone can give you almost 5000 BEP, so we recommend prioritizing this to try to get to level 30 as fast as possible!Check Out The Elemental Crucible Here
