Smelting fireworks is a lot like cooking food in Genshin Impact, but you’ll have to adjust your technique to get the perfect result.

The festivities kick on with Wondrous Shadows, where you have to solve Shadow Lantern puzzles by adjusting its position to match the given template.

However, it’s not all fun and games. The Great Gathering mission will have you fighting off enemies in waveriders to help rebuild the Jade Chamber, while Oceanic Defender will see you take on a new boss. These two quests will give you Conquest Talismans, which you can exchange for Level-Up Materials as well as a Crown of Insight.
