The Genshin Impact 1.6 update goes live on June 9, 2021, bringing all the fun of Midsummer Island Adventure: brand new events, mini-games, Klee-centric quests, and of course, new items! One of these items is a gadget called Wind-Blessed Harpastum. Gadgets unlock interesting features in the game, so it's worth finding out how to obtain this specific item.
What is the Wind-Blessed Harpastum?
A "harpastum" is the name of a small, hard ball that was used by the Romans in their recreational sports. These historic balls were also filled with feathers, just like the Wind-Blessed Harpastum—though it seems likely that the Genshin Impact version of this item will do more than simply get kicked around.
Currently, there is no further information as to what function the Wind-Blessed Harpastum serves or what it will do once activated. We will update this guide once these details become available.
How to obtain the Wind-Blessed Harpastum
As of June 11, 2021, Act II of the Midsummer Island Adventure event is available to play. Completing the Summer Vacation: Proceed with Caution quest will automatically give you the Wind-Blessed Harpastum, no mini-games required! Plus, you get to watch a very endearing cutscene, which makes the freebie that much better.
