Daylight Saving Time Odyssey
Compared to previous island adventures, this year’s summertime odyssey big event aims to bring even more as the Golden Apple archipelago sees a dramatic makeover. Throughout the event, you’ll find fresh landscapes and lots of new stories. Includes richer rewards like lots of new treasure chests. Players also have the chance to get the 4-star character Fischer and her latest outfit. Both are available for a limited time.
Travelers visiting the Golden Apple archipelago this summer can look forward to a serious expedition as each island transforms into a variety of themes and puzzles. Xinyan, Fischl, Kazuha, and Mona, who are traveling with us, also seem to have secret connections with certain areas where they may encounter mysterious territories of danger and treasure.
Sailing has always been a highlight of the island’s recreation, and this summer you can speed run with a wave rider on a specially designed course or sail online with your friends. For example, Reminiscent Regimen is a co-operative-specific event with three different game modes. Convoy mode requires all participants to escort a large raft to their destination. Raids, on the other hand, require players to steer their wave riders to board floating platforms and eliminate enemies. In descent mode, players have to descend from a high platform in the sky to fight. be careful. Otherwise, you and your teammates may have a hard time when you are in the air.
If you want to take a leisurely stroll along the beach, don’t forget to pick up a special snail during the Resonating Visions event. Collect snails to hear intriguing stories and stories, or exchange a whole new set of fish costumes for a certain number of snails. Overall, this year’s Golden Apple Archipelago not only gives veteran travelers a friendly atmosphere, but also introduces a lot of fresh exploration mechanisms and stories to everyone!
Bonds with friends
While having a good time on the island with other characters, version 2.8 allows you to connect with more friends, old and new. Diluc, Kazuha Kaedehara, and the brand new playable 4-star character Shikanoin Heizou will be featured in the latest events and stories.
As one of the early playable characters, Diluc receives a brand new outfit. Costumes with unique looks, new idol animations and new effects will soon be available in the shop. Meanwhile, the inside story and trial phase can be found at the Hidden Strife Challenge Event.
After participating in the game for over a year, Kazuha Kaedehara’s story quest has finally arrived. The story of Kazuha from the famous lightning swordsman family seems to be related to a mysterious sword and a duel. For more information, see his story quest, Acer Palmatum chapter.
Kazuha’s friend, Shikanoin Heizo, will also make his debut in the next version. Heizo is a young genius detective on the genius committee and is at the forefront of the fight against the mastermind of crime. Despite his free and unruly nature, Sara Kujo appreciates his ability to resolve crime. You may know more, and you can even take part in his work at his hangout event.
In combat, Heizou is our first melee catalyst user. He uses catalysts and has anemovision, but his elemental skills and elemental bursts are all unarmed techniques, just like regular attacks. His elemental skill initiates a Heartstopper strike, and charging the elemental skill grants a special “declension” stack. When Heizo reaches a certain amount of song stack, his elemental skills DMG and AoE increase. His elemental burst unleashes a Windmister kick, pulling in nearby enemies and handling the AoE Anemo DMG. When an enemy is affected by a Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, or Electro element, a follow-up explosion delay will occur, dealing damage of the corresponding element type. In addition, Heizou can reduce the sprinting stamina consumption of your own party members.
Shikanoin Heizou will be available in the early stages of version 2.8 at the request of the rerun event of Kazuha Kaedehara and Clay. Yoimiya reruns will be available in the post-update phase.
In version 2.8, more events and rewards are waiting for your exploration. For example, at the Evermotion Mechanical Painting event, you can solve special puzzle games to get new furniture for the Serenitea pot.
Last but not least, the PlayStation Plus Pack, available to PlayStation Plus members at no additional charge, will be updated after version 2.8 is released. So don’t forget to request a PS Plus pack that includes Mora x 50,000, Heroes Whit x 20, Mystic Enhancement Ole x 15, and Fragile Resin x 2 for free.
That’s all for today. See you next time!
