The annual Liyue Lantern Rite event has just started, with plenty of activities and games for all travelers to enjoy. Of course, a Genshin Impact event would not be complete without rich rewards and freebies.

This time around, miHoYo is giving away a free 4-star character to all players participating in the “Fleeting Colors in Flight” event.
