Genshin Impact 3.2 events

In addition to the 'grand finale' of the Sumeru Archon Quest, a Story Quest for Nahida, the addition of a Dendro Hypostasis and new boss Scaramouche, we're getting five limited-time events during the 3.2 update to Genshin Impact.

There are no official start dates or participation requirements revealed for all of the events yet, but here's what we know so far:

Genshin Impact Adventurer's Trials event

Adventurer's Trials starts on Friday, 4th November and ends on Monday, 21st November. You need to be Adventure Rank 20 in order to take part.

For this fun looking event, you take control of different characters for a unique challenge specific to them - if you don't have a certain character yet, you'll be able to control them through a trial period exclusive to the event.

Challenges include testing your combat abilities with modifiers such as Elemental Bursts disabled, or collecting coins while trying to dodge various environmental obstacles, or using a plunging attack. Each character has their own unique challenge, essentially making this event a series of mini-games.

To add to the fun, you can also take on each challenge with a friend in co-op.

The rewards you can earn from the Adventurer's Trials event include:

  • Primogems
  • Mora
  • Mystic Enhancement Ore
  • Weapon Enhancement Materials
  • Talent Level-Up Materials
  • Character EXP Materials

Genshin Impact Fabulous Fungus Frenzy event

For full details and puzzle solutions, check out our dedicated page to the Fabulous Fungus Frenzy event!

Fabulous Fungus Frenzy starts on Thursday, 10th November and ends on Monday, 28th November. You need to be Adventure Rank 30 and have completed the Chapter 1, Act 3 Archon Quest 'A New Star Approaches' in order to take part through the 'Quick Start' option in the event page.

It's also recommended to complete the Chapter 3, Act 5 Archon Quest 'Akasha Pulses, The Kalpa Flame Rises' and Yae Miko's story quest to fully appreciate the narrative of the event, but is not required if entering through 'Quick Start'.

As for its gameplay, the Fabulous Fungus Frenzy event involves using a new limited-time gadget, the Wisdom Orb, to catch and battle various Fungi enemies found in the Sumeru region - which you can then rename and train.

The training involves 'cultivating' the Fungi to unlock special skills by working out the correct jelly mixes in small puzzle sections involving moving and rotating nine jellies in a grid. We've got all the solutions here.

To upgrade your Fungi's special skills, you then need to go to a special training room and complete two types of challenges: Coordinated Assaults and Zone Defense.

During these combat challenges, you get to control your Fungi in order to attack or defend the objective.

The rewards you can receive from Fabulous Fungus Frenzy include:

  • Free Dori character
  • Primogems
  • Mora
  • Mystic Enhancement Ore
  • Crown of Insight
  • Character Ascension Materials
  • Talent Level-up Materials
  • Character EXP Materials

Genshin Impact Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens event

Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens starts on Wednesday, 16th November and ends on Monday, 5th December. You need to be Adventure Rank 30 and have completed the 'Ritou Escape Plan' part of the Chapter 2, Act 1 Archon Quest 'The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia' in order to take part through the 'Quick Start' option in the event page.

It's also recommended to complete Yoimiya's and Tartaglia's (AKA Childe's) Story Quests to fully appreciate the narrative of the event, but is not required if entering through 'Quick Start'.

As for the gameplay, Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens has more of a casual vibe, tasking you with taking pictures with an updated Kamera to complete specific challenges. You'll apparently also run into various side stories while traveling between picture locations.

The Kamera challenges include taking photos of a specific character, and performing a certain type of elemental skill.

The rewards you can receive from Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens include:

Genshin Impact Hypostatic Symphony: Dissonant Verse event

Hypostatic Symphony: Dissonant Verse starts on Thursday, 24th November and ends on Monday, 5th December, and you need to be Adventure Rank 20 in order to take part.

Those who've been playing Genshin Impact for a while will be familiar with the Hypostatic Symphony events which task you with battling Hypostasis of increasing difficulties - only this time, the new Dendro Hypostasis will feature as an additional enemy.

Before each challenge, you can select a Dissonance buff effect to use. As the challenge difficulty increases, however, there will be less buffs to pick from. Make sure you're using these buffs at the right moment to successfully clear these limited-time domains!

It sounds like these challenges could get pretty tough, but as mentioned in the livestream, you don't need to take on too many tough challenges if it's just Primogems you're after.

Additionally, this Hypostatic Symphony: Dissonant Verse event can be played with a friend in co-op.

The rewards you can earn from the Hypostatic Symphony: Dissonant Verse event include:

  • Primogems
  • Mora
  • Mystic Enhancement Ore
  • Weapon Enhancement Materials
  • Character EXP Materials

Genshin Impact Marvelous Merchandise event

Marvelous Merchandise starts on Monday, 28th November and ends on Monday, 5th December, and you only need to be Adventure Rank 12 in order to take part.

Just like previous Marvelous Merchandise events, when available, you can trade in various (mostly common) materials to the merchant Liben in exchange for a box of your choosing. All of these boxes include Primogems, but depending on what one you pick, you can choose other rewards like Mora, Mystic Enhancement Ore, and Ascension materials.

Each day means you have to collect and trade three different material types, so if you want to be prepared, we recommend stocking up on materials like apples, carrots, fowl, and sweet flowers now.
