Another Genshin Impact event is about to begin, with Fulminating Sandstorm involving more fighting. This time, players will be tasked with fighting Wenuts. In exchange, they’ll get Hero’s Wits, Mora, Mystic Enhancement Ores, Primogems, and Weapon Ascension Materials. However, people will need to meet certain requirements to take part, and HoYoVerse went over the details ahead of the event’s debut on April 21, 2023.

How to Take Part in Genshin Impact Fulminating Sandstorm

First, people need to meet certain requirements. You have to have reached Adventure Rank 28, made it to Sumeru, and the Chapter 1, Act 3 Archon Quest “A New Star Approaches.” That’s the last one in Liyue ahead of the Dainsleif prelude. Once you do that, you’ll head to Aaru Village to meet the Akademiya researcher Vinayak. Talking to the NPC will give you a chance to use the Wenutslayer Cannon, a new invention, to fight Wenuts.

What will follow are essentially battle challenges. HoYoVerse noted there will be five total. The first two will be available on April 21, 2023. The third shows up on April 22, 2023. The fourth will appear on April 23, 2023. Finally, on April 24, 2023 the fifth one will show up. The early details about it noted that the goal will be to defeat the Wenut. However, to do that you’ll also have to protect a Charging Device for the Wenutslayer Cannon from general monsters as you do. Once it finishes charging, the player can go to the turret to fire it at the Wenut. After completing each challenge, people will get some of the Hero’s Wit, Mora, Mystic Enhancement Ore, Primogem, and Weapon Ascension Material rewards.

As a reminder, HoYoVerse already showed off this event a bit during the 3.6 Special Program. Starting at the 18:33 mark below, it showed Genshin Impact Fulminating Sandstorm gameplay.

While waiting for that, another event is live in-game. Brewing Developments challenges can be faced until April 24, 2023 for various rewards.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and Fulminating Sandstorm will be available April 21, 2023 through May 1, 2023.
