The Genshin Impact TCG is getting another limited-time mode.

Just like with the previous Genshin Impact 3.4 update, the 3.5 update also includes a number of new Genius Invokation TCG mechanics. The Heated Battle Mode reduces the Elemental Dice required for playing cards and casting Character Skills.

In fact, the number of elemental dice required to play the first card from your hand, every round, will be reduced by two. Also, the number of elemental dice required to use the first character skill will be reduced by one each round. This drastically speeds up the game and leads to a lot more aggressive plays.
