The final Sumeru arc update for Genshin Impact, version 3.8, included Veluriyam Mirage as a brand-new, momentary event location. Before entering Fontaine in the forthcoming patch, this event region offers players engaging new content to explore. Along with this, the update adds new playable character cards for the Genius Invokation Trading Card Game, including Kaedehara Kazuha, Yanfei, and Candace. Players now have the chance to create original strategies and identify their preferred deck combinations thanks to these new cards.
Another addition to Genshin Impact’s Genius Invokation TCG is a new limited-time gameplay mode that gives players the option to earn extra Lucky Coins as rewards. This mode is accessible until the end of the patch. Players can use these coins in the game to open up new cards or cosmetic items. If they participated in the last patch, some players may already be familiar with The Forge Realm’s Temper; but, this update introduces significant gameplay improvements.
Endless Swarm Challenge: Forge Realm’s Temper Gameplay Guide
There are no different qualifications for Forge Realm’s Temper: Endless Swarm Challenge than there are for other Genius Invokation TCG-related content. In order to access the new challenges, players just need to visit the Cat’s Tail Tavern and chat with Prince if they have already completed the conditions to unlock this mini-game option.
There are a total of four stages in this iteration of Forge Realm’s Temper, each with unique challenge rules that, under certain circumstances, grant various benefits. The challenges also include a range of monster opponent cards, each with a unique point value. Players can earn points by eliminating each foe over the course of 5 rounds (the first challenge has only 4 rounds). Monsters are replaced as soon as they are slain, creating an infinite swarm that forces players to constantly face and slay as many as they can. Players will earn Lucky Coins as rewards based on their point bracket after the five rounds. When players score 1000 points, they will receive 1000 coins, while 2000 and 3000 points will net them 500 coins apiece. If they hit 3000 points, though, they will receive a mind-boggling 2000 Lucky Coins every level.
I – Ringed Frosting Stage
Due to the advantageous special rules that apply to practically any team composition, especially ones focused on dealing considerable elemental damage, and the fact that it only consists of 4 rounds as opposed to the other stages, the first stage of the challenge is significantly simpler than the following stages. Players are recommended to use characters from other elements such as Pyro, Cryo, or Dendro because the stages contain Hydro and Electro Abyss Mages as well as Electro and Hydro Slimes. If players decide to concentrate on a single target, it is advised to prioritize killing the Abyss Mages because they offer more than double the points of a slime while taking longer to kill because of their ability to shield.
Anemo characters can also be quite powerful because they have the ability to swirl and disseminate elemental damage among other opponents, consistently cause an Elemental Reaction, and produce Omni Element Dice. This makes it difficult for opponents to repeatedly swirl the applied elements by forcing them to switch characters. In this stage, characters like Jean, Maguu Kenki, or Kazuha can be especially helpful.
II – Echoing Destruction Stage
Echoing Destruction contains tougher foes that are worth more points than the previous stage. To earn the maximum number of points, you only need to win against each opponent once. once the opponents join the field one at a time, the first special rule might not first seem important, but once the second character enters, it can be useful because it applies various aspects. The second special rule, though, is considerably more helpful because it enables players to take one fewer die for their initial combat action.
Players can greatly benefit from team configurations that have 2 or 3 different aspects, allowing for easy switching between characters, keeping these factors in mind. Additionally, players can use a single-target strategy because opponents only appear one at a time. The Abyss Lector has healing skills, thus it’s imperative to take him down as soon as you can because doing so gives the squad a big edge. It is crucial to remember that every enemy packs a potent punch, making having a healing character on the team quite useful. For instance, a team made up of Yae Miko, Sangonomiya Kokomi, and Nahida can be a powerful answer to these adversaries.
III – Fungal Frenzy Stage
In this challenge, participants utilize Hilichurls and fungi to create a stage filled with numerous, lesser adversaries. Teams that excel at Charged Attacks are favored by the particular rules, which provide more detailed information. Additionally, having Weapon and Artifact cards on hand might be advantageous for the team because characters armed with these cards can use their skills once per round without using a die. Players can successfully control their die consumption and gain a tactical edge by arming characters with these cards before using their skills.
Due to the fact that the monsters in this stage come in groups of three, decks that are good at providing AoE damage can be helpful. For instance, when combined with an elemental reaction like Electro-Charged, which constantly deals damage over time, Keqing’s Elemental Burst has the ability to attack several adversaries at once. Players may also think about employing characters like Klee or Yanfei, who get extra benefits while using Charged Attacks, given how advantageous Charged Attacks are.
IV – Rapid Hexes
Players advance in the Rapid Hexes challenge by eliminating opponents quickly, ideally using diverse characters, as each one eliminated does more damage. Encouraging the use of equipment cards once more, the game now allows players to equip them for free every round. Therefore, for effective die management, while enhancing their characters, players may wish to think about attaching just one equipment card at a time.
Only two opponents will be present on the field at once in this scenario, which slows down the acquisition of stacks through swift kills. Players can alternatively prioritize rapid single-target hits that can one-shot foes instead of necessarily focusing on AoE decks. As a result, characters that rely more on huge burst damage or access to Elemental Reactions like Vaporize than on summons to inflict the majority of the damage at the end of the turn will benefit players more. In this regard, Hu Tao might be a great character to take into consideration.
