The Windblume festival will showcase amazing mini-games that will also offer rich rewards. Players will definitely get to earn special event currency that can be exchanged for rich rewards like Crown of Insight, Hero’s Witt, Primo gems, and so on.

Bullseye balloons: This mini-game will throw you into a timed challenge that will test your archery skills. Players will have to shoot down a range of balloons in a particular order to earn points. Shooting the wrong balloon will cause point deductions.

Floral Freefall: This mini-game will test your gliding ability along with the free-falling skill. Players will have to collect flowers, as they make their way to the ground by alternating between gliding and free falling. This event will also be a timed game, so you will have to react quickly in order to make your way to the surface.

Ballads of Breeze: In this event, players will have to take on the role of the Anemo Archon Bard Venti. You will need to play a range of songs with the lovely instrument Lyre by pressing the correct directional keys at the right time. The songs will range from normal, hard, to pro difficulty, and reward points will also scale with each difficulty setting.

Players will also get to play the original music with the Lyre in Co-Op mode, which will make things rather interesting.

Stepping Stone Antics: In this mini-game players will have to avoid the falling platform and step on the correct one to win. The game will progress with new patterns being introduced, and you will have to anticipate which one might fall down next.

Shimmering path: This will serve as a memory game that the player needs to learn in order to cross the chasm. Travelers will get a glimpse of the disappearing path, and they have to make their way across without falling.
