Genshin Impact details via the developer:
The latest update will bring the “King of Invokations Grand Prix” main event, more than 60 brand-new TCG cards, as well as the new playable four-star character Kirara into the game.
As an international TCG tournament across Teyvat, the “King of Invokation Grand Prix” attracts numerous visitors, including card players, tourists, and even a reporter from Fontaine at its venues and celebrations in multiple areas. Working for the famous newspaper The Steambird, Charlotte will not only cover the tournament but also investigate into a strange case on-site, and players can join her and meet characters from various nations in the event storyline. Meanwhile, the Adventurers’ Guild has prepared events that will delight everyone, regardless of whether you’re a TCG player. Card players of all levels can attend the unofficial tourney “Zero Hour Invokation” and duel with selected cards. Visitors who are interested in Genius Invokation can also try out “Evermotion Mechanical Painting” or “Heart of the Dice,” two mini-games that incorporate elements of Genius Invokation TCG. The former requires participants to restore card illustrations from complex and disordered mechanics and gears, and the latter is a combat challenge where random Elemental Dice can be obtained to unleash special skills. For people who just want to enjoy leisurely gameplay, “A Tour of Wonders” is a great choice to join a sightseeing Parkour or enemies-clearing tour and collect commemorative stamps at the checkpoints to exchange for rewards. By finishing the events above, players can win Invokation Coupons to redeem rewards, including the free 4-star bow “Ibis Piercer.”
In addition, a series of trials will be added, and these will put the combat techniques and the imagination of the players to the test. Travelers will have to face three formidable enemies in “Feast of the Departed Warriors,” fight in battles where time stands still in “Fayz Trails: Hypothesis” and share their innovative custom Domains in “Divine Ingenuity: Collector’s Chapter.”
Version 3.7 also features a major update to Genius Invokation TCG with more than 60 new cards, a new player-versus-player mode, and a player-versus-environment mode. The ever-expanding TCG collection will officially welcome Character Cards of all four Archons as well as a larger selection of characters, monsters, weapons, and artifacts. With more flexibility in deck building, two special TCG modes serve as great testing grounds. In the new player-versus-player mode “Arena of Champions,” winners will need to secure a total of 5 wins, while 3 losses will result in you having to start over from the beginning. The other new addition is the player-versus-environment mode “The Forge Realm’s Temper,” where players can select the difficulty level and additional conditions to score extra points.
Kirara will also debut as a four-star Dendro sword user. Kirara works as a responsible courier who offers first-class delivery services. As a nekomata from Inazuma, she is also a master of transformation, and prefers to strike with her claws and youkai powers. With her Elemental Skill, Kirara can use her nekomata talents in two ways: she creates a Dendro shield with a flying kick, or she further transforms into an “Urgent Neko Parcel” to move more quickly and deal Dendro damage when she encounters opponents. When she unleashes her Elemental Burst, Kirara will bash her enemies with a special package that splits into many small Dendro bombs that deal additional Dendro damage. This nekomata can also approach some smaller animals without startling them. For version 3.7 Event Wishes, the first half will welcome the debut of Kirara and reruns of Yoimiya and Yae Miko, and the latter will feature reruns of Kaedehara Kazuha and Alhaitham. Players can also join Yoimiya on a long journey towards the Nation of Wisdom in the second act of her Story Quest “Carassius Auratus Chapter,” or visit the talented architect Kaveh to uncover the complexities of his inner world in his Hangout Event.
