Hello, Travelers~ Lantern Rite is just around the corner, let's take a look at the exciting events for this year's Lantern Rite~

There will be a number of quests and rewards on offer during the Fleeting Colors in Flight event. It has been broken down into four themes: Flameplume Starflowers, The Great Gathering, Wondrous Shadows, and Oceanic Defender.
Flameplume Starflowers will have players channeling their inner Yoimiya by creating fireworks. Smelt them perfectly, and you’ll earn rewards such as Primogems and Affluence Talismans — which you can cash in for event rewards.
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.
We will update this with exact quests and rewards once the Fleeting Colors in Flight event goes live.
