How Does the Genshin Impact Lost Riches Event Work?

The Genshin Impact Lost Riches event is pretty straightforward. To start, players are going to have to have Adventure Rank 20 at the minimum; if you haven't yet attained this level, you have a little less than two days to get it done. You'll also have to complete Prologue Act I "The Outlanders Who Caught the Wind."

Once those prerequisites are covered, you have to head over to Stone Gate to find Ulman. He'll give you a Treasure Book along with a "Treasure-Seeking Seelie." These two items will help you find Iron Coins, and those Iron Coins can be exchanged for rewards.

What will you get? You can potentially get Primogems in some of the chests (alongside other rewards). The event's ultimate reward, however, is one of the three Mini Seelie pets: Mini Seelie: Dayflower, Mini Seelie: Rosé, or Mini Seelie: Curcuma. You'll only be able to pick one of the three, so choose carefully!

New Genshin Impact Ganyu Details Also Revealed

Also arriving today are more details about the upcoming Genshin Impact Ganyu character and the Ganyu Character Teaser Trailer above. Ganyu is a ranged character specializing in Cryo Damage.

Normally, Ganyu can fire up to six consecutive shots with a bow. Choose to use her Charge Attack, and you have two options: a quick shot will fire an icy arrow that does Cryo damage and a charged-up shot will do the same while also adding an AoE Cryo damage effect.

Ganyu will be great for keeping enemies at range thanks to her "Trail of the Qilin" Talent — she dashes backward, leaving behind an ice lotus flower that taunts enemies and pulls aggro. If things get serious, you can use her Celestial Shower talent to rain down shards of ice over an area.

And that's that for today's announcements! You'll be able to play the Genshin Impact Lost Riches event starting on January 8, 2021, at 10:00 AM. You'll have ten days in total to complete the quest. If you haven't yet jumped into the game, you can play Genshin Impact for free via its website.
