According to miHoYo’s recent blog post, Wishful Drops will begin on April 9 and end on April 16, 2021. Just like many other events, one needs to be Adventure Rank 20 or above to take part in it.

Players have to complete a quest named “Life Flows On (1)” to avail the Inquisitive Endora. Using this event gadget gives out special abilities and completing an exploration is the most viable way to obtain a Heart of the Spring.

Even though Wishful Drops seems interesting, it is safe to assume that the old players will complete it with utmost ease. Accordingly, update 1.5 will again have the tremendous burden of catering to the demands of everyone.

Is the Childe banner worth it?

The return of Childe in Genshin Impact has become a hot topic amongst the players. Many free-to-play users had been saving their primogems from the past three weeks, and will now spend them to unlock the Hydro damage dealer.

However, it is worth noting that Genshin Impact will constantly re-run the banners of old five characters now. These include the likes of Zhongli, Albedo, and Ganyu, among many others. Childe is undoubtedly a great damage dealer, but others like Ganyu and Hu tao have also proved their worth. So much so that they are even claimed to be broken at times.

On the flip side, Childe’s play style involves different stances and weapons and is very unique. Hence, you should pull for him if this play styles attracts you the most, and you are looking forward to keeping him in the team compositions for a long time.
