Genshin Impact characters that work best in Peculiar Wonderland

Every character in Genshin Impact comes with their unique abilities and talents. Some of them, like Razor’s less stamina consumption, are very important in clearing certain Windblume Festival events. Moreover, including two Anemo characters can further activate the resonance bonus of this element.

Similarly, the Geo Traveler can provide elevation with his Elemental Skill. This ability works best when used in the Stepping Stone Antics and Barrage Minuet. Players can also complete a challenge that requires them to finish Peculiar Wonderland without falling.

It is worth noting that the timer in Peculiar Wonderland does not give additional points for stage bonuses. There’s a penalty, but only if the participant runs out of time, which implies that completing the challenges in the fastest time possible does no good whatsoever.

Other hidden details in update 1.4

There have been many subtle, yet game-changing additions in Genshin Impact with the 1.4 update. It won’t be an overstatement that players often neglect food, and the several food recipes in miHoYo‘s action-RPG. As a result, the four new recipes introduced with the latest update have also gone unnoticed.

These recipes comprise Mint, a refreshingly cool ingredient that the community has been gathering for months now, and are available for purchase from the Good Hunter in Mondstadt, and Wanmin Restaurant in Liyue.

Lastly, the developers have patched two glaring issues in Ningguang’s gameplay. Her Charged Attack will no longer lead to lag in the game, and the Elemental Burst missiles will also serve their purpose.

All in all, Genshin Impact has a ton of new challenges and events with the addition of Windblume Festival. Veterans who’ve been complaining about the lack of content finally have something to look forward to.
