How to Start the Genshin Impact Perilous Expedition

Before you take part in the Perilous Expedition Event in Genshin Impact, you will first have to get an Adventure Rank of 20 or above as well as complete the “Song of the Dragon and Freedom” Archon Quest. You will then receive the “Complex Cartography” quest that will have you travel to Sumeru’s rainforest. All you need to do is to talk to Peixiu complete this unlock quest and then participate in the Perilous Expedition event in Genshin Impact.

This event is pretty simple. Each day you will adventure into a new Perilous Expedition, expanding to five days, one stage per day. At the same time, each stage has three different combat rounds. There are four different difficulties to choose from:

  • Normal: The enemies’ difficulties will adjust to your World Level.
  • Hard: The enemies’ difficulties will adjust to your World Level.
  • Crisis: The enemies’ difficulties will adjust to your World Level.
  • Dire: Has a set difficulty with opponents having a set level as well.

Each Perilous Expedition will have a set number of buffs and a specific Ley Line Disorder. To gain each of the buffs, you will have to use multiple unique characters, varying your party’s composition before each round. You can opt to use the same characters always, but you won’t have access to all the buffs available. Here are all the Perilous Expeditions with their buffs, Ley Line Disorders, and monsters list so you can prepare the best team to tackle the challenge.
