Genshin Impact’s Lantern Rite events are huge, and Fleeting Colors in Flight is no exception.

Genshin Impact Fleeting Colors in Flight event start date

The Genshin Impact Fleeting Colors in Flight event will rerun in the Version 2.4 update, due to release on January 5, 2022. It officially goes live on January 25, 2022 and runs until February 12, 2022.

This gives players some time to roll on the early banners in the 2.4 update — including the release of both Shenhe and Yun Jin, two new Liyue characters.

Genshin Impact Fleeting Colors in Flight quests & rewards

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.

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.
