Our Favorite Genshin Impact Events

There have been a lot of events in Genshin Impact now that it’s over two years old, so we figured it’s a good time to discuss the ones we liked best. Especially now that we’ve already seen the 2023 Lantern Rite and Windblume Festival appear in the game.

I’m going to have to say the Genshin Impact Unreconciled Stars event is the best one in some ways. This is primarily because of how much additional context we ended up getting about the world. It introduced Scaramouche, showing us a character who’d be relevant to the story in many different ways. We also got hints about the nature of Teyvat. Not to mention it’s great to see Mona get more screen-time, as you’d think an astrologer would help provide interesting insights into the nature of the world.

However, I am also a very big fan of both Golden Apple Archipelago events. The 1.6 and 2.8 ones both offered a lot to do, good rewards, and a great space to explore. — Jenni

My personal favorite event in Genshin Impact is the Irodori Festival, mainly because I always love events that parody Comiket and the convention scene. It’s also a good, light-hearted diversion, which also happens to be the canonical first meeting for several of my favorite Liyue and Inazuma characters. Also, the Irodori Festival and the events around it hosts my favorite side quest, “Buyer’s Guide to Statue of Her Excellency, the Almighty Narukami Ogosho, God of Thunder.” It’s a shame that hoYoVerse doesn’t seem to believe in event reruns yet, as newer players will have missed out on this goodness. — Josh

My favourite Genshin Impact flagship event was also the Irodori Festival for different reasons than Josh. (Okay, I’m just a Kazuha and Xingqiu simp.) So my second favourite is the second Lantern Rite Festival. I’m a sucker for the Lantern Rite in general because I really like how bright Liyue is during that time, and I particularly enjoyed the second one because that was Shenhe’s debut event. Her story was the perfect mix of heartwarming and funny that I felt was a great improvement from writing fumbles in the main story at the time. — Stephanie
