Genshin Impact‘s Version 2.4 update, “Fleeting Colors in Flight,” will be coming soon for everyone to enjoy on January 5, 2022. This new update adds a new region, “Enkanomiya” and brings back the beloved Lantern Rite, a staple event that was very popular with players on Version 1.3. New characters, Shenhe and Yun Jin, and returning characters such as Xiao, Zhongli and Ganyu also make an appearance.

▍Get Both New and Returning Characters!
To confront the challenges, players can team up with more reliable companions as Version 2.4 will feature four event wishes. Two new characters will join the cast of Genshin Impact:
First, the new ★5 character Shenhe, who’s an adepti disciple who comes from a long line of Liyue exorcists. She not only wields the power of Cryo herself but her abilities also increase the Cryo damage dealt by her teammates. Her Elemental Skill can also boost either nearby party members’ Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage, or their Normal, Plunging, and Charged Attack damage.
The ★4 character Yun Jin owns a Geo Vision, and she can buff her teammates’ Normal Attacks based on her Defense and the variety of Visions in the player’s party. For the first time ever in Genshin Impact, Yun Jin will be the first character to have two voice actors, with her opera performance voiced by the professional Peking Opera Artist, Yang Yang while her story dialogues will be delivered by voice actors in different languages. According to the developers, this is to ensure that Yun Jin’s Chinese-styled opera is as authentic as possible, since Liyue is based on China.
In addition to the new characters, Zhongli, Xiao, and Ganyu will make a return on the Character Event wishes that will be available throughout Version 2.4’s patch period.
▍Choose a free Liyue ★4 Character and more in the Lantern Rite!
The Lantern Rite will be held once again, bringing back rich rewards, and the chance to obtain a free four-star Liyue character out of eight different choices: Xingqiu (Hydro), Yun Jin (Geo), Beidou (Electro), Xiangling (Pyro), Ningguang (Geo), Xinyan (Pyro), Yanfei (Pyro) and Chongyun (Cryo).
Furthermore, by doing the story quests, players can even bring back the illustrious Jade Chamber that was destroyed in the past Archon Quest after Ningguang sacrificed the building to deal massive damage to Osian, and obtain many rewards such as Talent Enhancement Materials, EXP Materials, Primogems and more.
In the previous Lantern Rite, players had to craft Xiao Lanterns and use them throughout various quests, but this time, we’re crafting Fireworks! As you gather the necessary materials, you’ll be able to craft many beautiful fireworks. I guess we’re finally putting our lessons with Yoimiya to good use!
▍Hang out with Yun Jin and Ningguang
In the fifth series of Hangout Events, players can hang out with the mistress of the Jade Chamber, Ningguang, as well as the Stage Lucida, Yun Jin, herself. These Hangout Events will surely provide players with a unique side of the characters.
▍New Region: Enkanomiya
By meeting the requirements, players will be able to explore a brand-new region located deep below Watatsumi Island, called Enkanomiya. In order to access this region, players must be:
- Adventure Rank 30 or above
- Complete the Archon Quest “Chapter II: Act III – Omnipresence Over Mortals”
- Complete the World Quests “The Still Water’s Flow” and “The Moon-Bathed Deep”
In Enkanomiya, sunlight does not reach. Instead, players must switch between Whitenight and Evernight using the tower located in the middle in order to clear various puzzles across the region. New overworld enemies will also be present, such as the Abyss Lector. Some puzzles can only be solved while Evernight is in place, while others can only be solved with Whitenight.
▍Elegant Outfits for Ningguang and Keqing!
Starting from January 5 and onwards, players are able to obtain two new Character Costumes for Ningguang and Keqing. Ningguang’s skin can be exchanged for free during the Lantern Rite event, while Keqing can be purchased from the Shop for 1350 Genesis Crystals for a limited time. Note: Both outfits will be available for a more expensive cost when the event ends. The developers encourage players to take advantage of the discount that will be available until February.
Both outfits are adorned with beautiful butterfly arrangements, while offering a regal look for both characters.
