Event Details

  • During the event, Travelers can follow directions on their map and teleport to the designated location to start the “Hidden Strife” challenge.
  • There are a total of seven themed challenges in “Hidden Strife,” and a new challenge will be unlocked each day for the first seven days of the event.

    • Blazing Thunder
    • Scatter, Flaming Feathers!
    • Puissant Calibre
    • Arch-Tempered Sword
    • The Other Molten Quadrant
  • Every challenge has two modes: “Vicious Battle” and “Dire Straits.”
  • Vicious Battle Mode features three difficulty levels: Perilous, Quandary, and Desperate. By completing a challenge on a higher difficulty setting, you can directly claim rewards for each difficulty below it.
  • Dire Straits Mode only unlocks after completing Desperate Difficulty in Vicious Battle Mode.
    • Each challenge has up to three completion criteria, and all of them must be completed for the challenge to be considered a success.
    • During the event, adjusting your World Level will have no effect on the challenge difficulty.
  • Each challenge features unique Ley Line Residues that have their own special effects. Take note of them and use them to your advantage during the challenges. For example:
    • Characters’ Elemental Burst DMG is increased by 50%.
    • After using 6 Elemental Bursts, you will obtain Afterimaged Might:
      • Characters’ Elemental Burst DMG is increased by 75%, and they will restore 3 Energy every 2 seconds.
    • You will encounter powerful opponents after obtaining Afterimaged Might. On Perilous difficulty in Vicious Battle mode, you can obtain this form of Afterimaged Might 20 seconds after the challenge starts.
  • When you achieve certain criteria during the challenge, you will gain Afterimaged Might and encounter powerful opponents. Defeat a specified number of powerful opponents to achieve the corresponding challenge objectives.

Do note that this event does NOT grant Diluc’s “Red Dead of Night” outfit. The only way to obtain the outfit is to  buy it using Genesis Crystals from the in-game shop.
