Apparently, Genshin Impact’s Version 1.5 update has been considered as one of the best updates to the game, with the introduction of the housing system, a new weekly boss, a new domain, and new characters. One of the new events is Windtrace. It is a game of hide and seek where the Hunters have to catch the Rebels before time is over. Here is how to access Windtrace, and tips on how to play Windtrace in Genshin Impact to get the great rewards.
The Location of Windtrace in Genshin Impact
You have to know that the location of Windtrace Genshin Impact is in Mondstadt. For your information, Mondstadt is one of the seven nations in Teyvat. Also, it is the first in which the Traveler starts to look for their lost sibling. Mondstadt is a city which worships the Anemo Archon (Barbatos). Since the start, Mondstadt has already celebrated a festival called the Ludi Harpastum every year, including 15 days of games to relish for the kids.
According to the official website of Genshin Impact, Mondstadt is a city of independence which lies in the northeast of Teyvat. From amongst the mountains and also the wide-open plains, the carefree breezes take the scent of dandelions, a gift from the Anemo God, Barbatos, across Cider Lake to Mondstadt that sits in the middle of the lake on an island.
Some area in Mondstadt Genshin Impact:
It is the namesake of the nation. This has cobblestone streets and has several windmills both big and small dotting the city. The lower area is the market district, while the upper area is for the Cathedral and the Library.
- Cider Lake
It is a natural freshwater lake. The lake’s wide and crystalline look has remained unchanged for eons. It is really clear so that you will be able to see the bottom. Also, it is really cool and refreshing to drink.
- Falcon Coast
Falcon Coast shelters the sea from 3 sides. They made a bay which was located east of Mondstadt. Because of the long coastline and shallow waters, the citizens of Mondstadt come here frequently to enjoy a pretty stroll. Occasionally, you are able to see falcons soaring high above the waves which brush upon the white sand.
Playing Windtrace in Genshin Impact
When player’s first launch the game, they have access to the quest which enables Windtrace, as long as the player is above Adventure Rank 20. By talking to the Gygax in Mondstadt, the event will be unlocked instantly. Talking to Gygax will allow you to start a match at any time by asking for a Co-Op invitation.
In each game of Windtrace, the Hunters are going to have three minutes to capture all three of the Rebels on one of the available maps. Every player’s Normal Attack, Elemental Burst and Elemental Skill is changed during the game. Towards the middle of a match, a Favor is going to descend upon the arena. Accessing this Favor will let the players use a special ability which benefits them. This ability will be able to replace their Elemental Burst. If you open the Windtrace Event and then choose the Windward Art, it is going to allow you to customize your mini game abilities.
For the Hunters, the one available Elemental Skill is Capture. If the hunters press this skill next to a Rebel, it will dispel their disguise and capture them. Also, the hunters have two options to replace their Normal Attack:
- Sensor Aura
This will be able to scout a fixed area around the player, and also notifies them if a rebel is hiding in the area.
- Mysterious Hunch
Briefly this will show the direction in which all the Rebels can be discovered.
- Sensor Aura
Also, the hunters have three options to replace their Elemental Burst:
- Imprisoning Curse
This will dispel the disguise of one Rebel randomly and restrains them from moving for a period of time.
This will dispel the disguises of the rebels. Also, this will be able to shine a beacon of the light on Rebel that marks their location. Rebels locations are going to be marked on the minimap and they will not be able to disguise themselves.
- Hunter’s Intuition
This will dispel the disguise of a Rebel. Also, this will mark their location on the minimap for a long period of time. Then, they will not be able to disguise themselves. If the Rebel is nearby, they are going to be marked by a beacon of light.
- Imprisoning Curse
For the Rebels, the Elemental Skill is replaced by Disguise. All Rebels have the same Elemental Burst, which boosts movement speed greatly for 30 seconds. For their Normal Attack, there are two choices:
- Lay Bait
The Rebels are able to place a piece of Bait in the area to confuse the Hunter. If the Hunters try to capture the Bait, their vision is going to be obscured for a short time.
This will make Rebels become invisible to the Hunter for about 4 seconds.
- Lay Bait
Certain maps and characters are able to give different advantages. With Mona, the players are able to use their special dash to hide in the ground. However, Mona cannot sprint over uneven terrain. For the Small Town Guerilla War map, hiding in chimneys is a nice strategy. While for the Winery Confrontation map, the cliffs at the edge of the map give a good hiding place, and the tops of trees in Ghost-Fire Stream offer worth seclusion in the otherwise quiet barren map.
By playing minigames and testing different Windward Arts, the players are going to realize what strategies work best for them. The players could earn as many Windtrace Coins as possible and collect those event rewards.
