Genshin Impact's Tales of the Youkai web event runs from December 21, 2022, to December 30, 2022, and is open to all players with Adventure Rank 30 and above. During this event, you can write stories with Paimon to submit to the Yae Publishing House to help readers get familiar with various youkai.
Start by heading to the official web event page. Make sure you're logged into your HoYoverse account, which is also your Genshin Impact account. Select the correct server and character, as rewards are distributed via in-game mail.
How to complete the Genshin Impact Tales of the Youkai web event
You first need to collect Inspiration to start writing stories. Click on the Get Inspiration button on the bottom right of the event page to see a list of tasks segregated per day. These are mostly in-game tasks that need to be completed on the same HoYoverse account you used to log into the web event. Once you've collected Inspiration, click on the Traveler's speech bubble to Start Writing.
Five youkai themes unlock throughout the event period. Each can be unlocked using several Inspirations. When you're ready, click on the youkai theme to unlock it, then select any prompts for your story. Different prompts will merit various Readers' Replies. You don't have to unlock these to get rewards so you can pick any of your preferred prompts.
After you've selected your preferred prompts, click Complete Creation to send the draft to the Yae Publishing House. You'll then receive a pop-up showcasing the completed work. Click Accept Paycheck to get rewards, including Primogems, which will be sent to you via in-game mail. Make sure to return the next day to complete tasks and a new youkai theme for more rewards.
