Windtrace is a recurring event in Genshin Impact. A classic Mondstadt game, handed down throughout its history.

Basic Gameplay

Players shall be split into two sides: the Rebels, members of the ancient resistance, and a Hunter sent by the ancient aristocracy, who will then have a contest of wits in the Contested Zones.

The Hunter's task is to capture all the Rebels, while the Rebels must constantly move and hide to avoid the Hunter until the danger has passed. If the Hunter dies or drowns during the event, the Rebels get victory, and if a Rebel dies or drowns during the event, it counts as a capture.

This event can be found under Icon Windtrace.svg map icon.

In the first run of the Windtrace event, players could use alternate sprints to hide. That has since been disabled in the second run of the Windtrace event.
