Autumn Crisis is one of the four activities that you can enjoy in the Genshin Impact Of Ballads and Brews event, which celebrates the Weinlesefest, one of Monstadt's most important holidays. The event runs from September 29, 2022, to October 17, 2022, while you can exchange Festive Fever rewards until October 24, 2022.
In the Autumn Crisis Challenge, you need to help another desperate Amurta student from Sumeru named Farabi, who's interested in writing about the existence of Snowboars.
How to unlock the Autumn Crisis Challenge in the Of Ballads and Brews event in Genshin Impact
To unlock Autumn Crisis, you must first complete the first Event Quest called Sounds From Afar. Once that's done, you'll automatically unlock the Event Quest called Secret Forest Shadow, where you must speak with Farabi in Springvale. After engaging in dialogue with Farabi and Edmund, you'll unlock Autumn Crisis.
This Challenge is divided into three parts: Expulsion, Capture, and Uproot. They unlock gradually throughout the event period, and you can access them and claim rewards by heading to the Event Details section of the event menu.
How to complete Autumn Crisis: Expulsion in the Of Ballads and Brews event in Genshin Impact
In Autumn Crisis: Expulsion, you need to attack as many Forest Boars, Piglets, and Snowboars as possible to collect points. Your goal is to amass 2,000 points within two minutes to get all of the Primogem rewards. Each type of boar will merit you the following number of points:
- Forest Piglet: 50 points
- Forest Boar: 100 points
- Snowboar: 300 points
During the Challenge, you can only use the Traveler's Normal Attack, so you need the help of buffs to defeat the more powerful Boars.
You can pick up a buff called Hunter's Shield, a small yellow orb on the ground. When the buff is active, you can deal damage against Forest Boars and Snowboars, and restore your Stamina. Meanwhile, Traps will regularly be released by small machines around the area to expel Forest Boars, but they are ineffective against Snowboars.
How to complete Autumn Crisis: Capture in the Of Ballads and Brews event in Genshin Impact
After completing the Expulsion Challenge, head to the event menu to begin the Capture Challenge. It will prompt a new Event Quest called Farmland Fugitives, where you need to speak with Walter and the Farabi in Dawn Winery. You need to do the Capture Challenge once to complete the quest.
The Autumn Crisis: Capture Challenge has a seven-minute time limit, where you must capture 15 animals in total. To get all of the Primogem rewards, you must capture all four different animals on top of completing the Challenge. Crimson Foxes and Forest Boars are often on the field, White Pigeons are usually resting on rocks, and Scarletbeak Ducks are in the water.
The mechanics for Capture are fairly simple and similar to how the Omni-Ubiquity Net works. You can only capture animals within the highlighted areas in the mini-map. Once you spot an animal, hold the Elemental Skill button to aim, and release it to capture the target. Watch out as the animals are quite vigilant and will run away or attack you if you get too close—avoid this by making sure that the red bar above their heads doesn't become a full circle.
There are Smoke Machines around the field that you can activate to reduce the animals' visibility, making it difficult for them to spot you.
How to complete Autumn Crisis: Uproot in the Of Ballads and Brews event in Genshin Impact
After completing the Capture Challenge, you'll unlock the Event Quest called Target: Master of the Snowy Peaks!, where you need to speak with Edmund and Farabi in Dragonspine. Doing so will unlock the Uproot Challenge, where you need to capture the Great Snowboar King within three minutes.
The Snowboar King will generally be in an enraged state, which you need to quell by doing any of the following:
- Pick up a Hunter's Shield buff and use Normal Attack against the Snowboar King until it becomes confused.
- Activate the smokescreen machine at the center and lure the Snowboar King toward it.
- Wait for a trap to become ready and lure the Snowboar King toward it.
Once the Snowboar King is no longer enraged, quickly hold and release the Elemental Skill button to attempt to capture it. Since the target is so strong, you need to do this multiple times before eventually capturing it.
You only have a small window before the Snowboar King becomes enraged again, so use the capture net as many times as you can. Repeat the steps until its HP is fully depleted, completing the Challenge.
