Windbloom Festival Minigames

Bullseye Ballon

The first one is called Bullseye Balloons. In this mini-game, you have to pop the correct balloons within the time limit. Don't worry; you do not need to have a high-level Bow character for this mini-game. You can also compete with others in Co-Op.

Some balloons will award points, and others will deduct points.

Ballads of Breeze

You play the Lyre, and you have to press keyboard prompts in a rhythm mini-game.

Floral Freefall

This minigame involves diving off cliffs and glide into Green Orbs that you have to glide into. You'll have to use a mixture of both gliding and falling to get all of the rings on your journey down. Get enough to get a high score!

Peculiar Wonderland

In this event, you get three random minigames you play. After the three rounds are over, the scores will be turned into buffs, where you have to fight a Pyro Regisvine. The higher your score, the easier this fight will become.

The games will involve obstacle courses, dodging projectiles, and walking in the dark, a memory floor game you have to memorize.

This event has three stages that must be completed to finish it, and they are all revolved around mini-games.

New Game Feature

Hangout Events

A new mechanic is coming to 1.4 with a new questline featuring your beloved characters. These are characters that the story has mentioned/seen through the game but not highlighted much as of yet.

This is sort of Dating Sim-Esque quests with multiple endings, plus rewards with Four-Star characters. The four characters you can do this with are:

  • Barbara
  • Bennett
  • Chongyun
  • Noelle

You have to choose dialogue choices, and you choose and see what ending you get. Sometimes if it goes poorly, you might get a bad ending or no ending at all! Don't fret, as you can get unlimited tries to get all the endings, and the more endings you get, the more rewards you can obtain!

Plus, you get a Hangout Memory picture of the hangout events for your collection. Hangout Events are the first of many!

To unlock these Hangout Events, you must have completed a few required story prerequisites and a specific Adventure Rank.

You need:

  • Two Story Keys
    • Keys are obtained by completing Daily Commissions. One Key is awarded for every eight commissions completed.
  • Adventure Rank 26

Wishful Drops

In this event, you are partnered with a Mini-Oceanid to help you in this quest. Upon completion, it will evolve into a pet called Endora!

A new event revolved around the Elite boss Oceanid may come to 1.4. Oceanid has new mechanics and moves to make this boss even more difficult. Also, you can play it in Co-op!

With this event, you must find Heart of the Springs. There are five to collect to unlock rewards for this event!

Contending tides

This is a new event where you face off against waves of Churls, Slimes, and even Ruin Hunters, with rewards to be won!  Added daily, a new challenge appears, with three difficulty options. If you complete the hardest one, all ones below it will be completed.

However, each challenge will have specific requirements that have to be fulfilled to complete it. Complete them to get rewards!

New Quests

Adjustments and Optimizations

Spiral Abyss

Starting from the first time that the Blessing of the Abyssal Moon changes after updating to Version 1.4, the two Blessings of the Abyssal Moon will be as follows:

  • Period I: Windward Moon
    • Characters possess an ATK-increasing Windward Aura that can increase their ATK by a maximum of 60%. For every opponent who steps within the Aura, the Aura's effect is decreased by 25%. When 4 or more opponents are within the Aura, this effect will not provide an ATK increase.
  • Period II: Skyward Moon
    • Hitting an opponent with a Plunging Attack decreases their DEF by 40% for 10s.
  • There will be no change to the reset times of the Spiral Abyss and Blessing of the Abyssal Moon. These remain the first and sixteenth days of each month, respectively.
  • Optimizes the order of item drops: More valuable items will appear earlier in the list.
  • Optimizes the cooking function: After unlocking Auto Cook, the option Cook Manually remains.
  • Optimizes the Spiral Abyss challenge: Challenges can be restarted mid-stage; Elemental Resonance effects can be viewed from the character selection screen; adds the option to exit before entering the next floor.
  • Cooking, crafting and forging functions remember your previous character selection.
  • Optimizes Xiao's expression when casting his Elemental Skill.
  • Optimizes the visual effect in Co-Op Mode when the camera makes contact with a teammate or NPC.
  • Optimizes camera close-up transitions in some domains and quests.
  • Optimizes the Original Resin replenishment screen: Travelers can view the quantity of Fragile Resin they own and decide which item to replenish Original Resin with more easily.
  • When you first download the game client on a mobile device, only the voice-over resources corresponding to your device's system language will be downloaded initially by default. (Example: Devices, where the system language is set to English, will download only English voice-over resources by default.) When you update the game client on a mobile device, voice-over resources will be downloaded for both the voice-over language corresponding to your device's system language and the currently selected voice-over language in the game. (Example: If your device's system language is set to English and you have selected Japanese voice-over in the game, both English and Japanese voice-over resources will be downloaded when you update the game.)
  • Travelers can download any additional voice-over languages they wish to use from within the game.

Audio

  • The Chinese voice artist for Amber is changed.
  • Adjusts the Chinese and Japanese voice-over for certain characters.
  • Adjusts the English voice-over for certain NPCs.
  • Adds Chinese voice-over for certain characters.
  • Adds dialogue voice-over to the Oceanid boss fight as well as certain sound effects for Oceanid Creatures.
  • Optimizes the sound effects for certain character skills and environments.
  • Optimizes the playback setting for the sound effect when characters take damage.

Other

  • Adjusts the appearance of Rosaria.
  • Fixes an issue whereby some characters who have not hit a target with an attack can jump while returning to a standby pose and thus perform a Plunging Attack.

*Additional Note: We are paying close attention to the possible impact of other operations that can produce the same effect. If we have plans to change them in the future, we will announce that as soon as possible.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
