Summary

  • During the event period, Travelers can take part in a game of Windtrace at Gygax's, and obtain Windtrace Coins to receive rewards such as Primogems, Talent Level-Up Materials, Character EXP Materials, and Mora.
  • On the first day of the event, the maximum number of Windtrace Coins you can obtain is 1,200. This amount will increase gradually for each of the 6 days after that, up to a maximum of 6,000 Windtrace Coins. Use the matching function to find randomized games and obtain Windtrace Coins.
  • Accumulate certain amounts of Windtrace Coins to claim the corresponding rewards. Complete Windtrace Challenges to obtain additional Mora rewards.
  • When participating in Windtrace, the unlocked "Contested Zone" will be randomly selected for the game. Travelers can unlock the "Contested Zone" by unlocking the Statue of the Seven in the corresponding area. The "Contested Zones" in Inazuma can only be unlocked by completing the Quest "Ritou Escape Plan" and unlocking the Statue of the Seven in the area. Travelers can view the currently unlocked content through the preview of the "Contested Zone" in the game overview.
  • Windtrace Coins can only be obtained while playing in randomized games using the matching function. You will be unable to obtain Windtrace Coins while playing in a custom Co-Op party.
  • Kamisato Ayaka and Mona's Alternate Sprints cannot be used in this Windtrace.

Contested Zones

Name Description
Windtrace 2022-01-13 Central Hall Shadow-Chasers.png
Central Hall Shadow-Chasers
Kamisato Estate, Inazuma
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: wooden basins, wooden barrels, and lamps.
The resistance once set up overseas support branches, fearing the worst for their chances back home. Following rumors of their presence, the Hunters would gave chase. These support teams had the highest measure of vigilance against their pursuers, and were ready at any time to engage them in what is now the Yashiro Commission grounds. Though much time has passed and the building has changed greatly, the courtyard layout is nonetheless quite similar — certainly enough to hone any Rebel's techniques!
Windtrace 2022-01-13 Amidst Autumn Trees.png
Amidst Autumn Trees
Higi Village, Inazuma
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: wooden basins, vases, and water tanks.
The resistance hiding out in the rural villages are holding a training session, such that they may be ready to stand against the keenest hunters in the most perilous circumstances. The dilapidated houses, the scattered items, and the vision-obscuring red leaves provide ample room for covering one's tracks!
Windtrace 2022-01-13 The Hidden Trials.png
The Hidden Trials
Kujou Encampment, Inazuma
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: archery targets, wine barrels, and Otogi Wood boxes.
The most guarded place is also the safest place. A mock battle based on a military camp in Kannazuka is about to take place! The hard-to-attack, easy-to-defeat terrain and the voluminous defenses introduce countless variables into the equation, and the well-designed encampment is also an ideal spot for ambushes. Both sides need to be cautious!
Windtrace 2022-01-13 Ritou Runaround.png
Ritou Runaround
Ritou, Inazuma
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: storage sacks, wine barrels, Otogi Wood boxes, and short stools.
The resistance would often have to meet with their contacts to keep abreast of the situation. The wily Hunters would also switch tacks to tail these informants, thus exposing the Rebels by extension. As such, even the busy, prosperous harbor could become a contested area. These pedestrian streets were good for concealing oneself, but they also greatly shortened distances and the reaction times required. Danger lay in wait around every corner...
Windtrace 2022-01-13 Terrace Patrol.png
Terrace Patrol
Qingce Village, Liyue
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: dead wood and scarecrows.
The terraced fields during harvest were not only excellent places for the resistance forces to conceal themselves but an excellent source of materials that could be used in the grueling struggle against the aristocracy. Of course, the Hunters would also watch this place, and they would dispatch elites to encircle the weaker Rebels...
Windtrace 2022-01-13 Searching the Silent Woods.png
Searching the Silent Woods
Starfell Valley, Mondstadt
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: old wooden boxes, and old wooden barrels.
The resistance operated in the woods near Mondstadt, right under their enemies' noses, taking advantage of this particular blind spot to great effect. After a time, however, the old aristocracy would discover these discrepancies and dispatch elite Hunters to investigate. The fierce battle beneath the silent trees is about to begin!
Windtrace 2022-01-13 In a City of Yore Concealed.png
In a City of Yore Concealed
Sea of Clouds, Liyue
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: old wooden boxes, old wooden barrels, and stone lamps.
The ruins and old abandoned wrecks would often be overlooked by the aristocracy due to their extreme danger and the harsh living conditions there, which made them difficult places to hide in. However, some survivalist Rebels would take advantage of this view to set up a base there. However, some Hunters with extremely good instincts would come to such places to conduct independent investigations. Thus would some unexpected confrontations come to be...
Windtrace Winery Confrontation.png
Winery Clash
Dawn Winery, Mondstadt
The current disguises in this Contested Zone are: wine barrels, street lamps, and chairs.
Delectable wines are Mondstadt's key exports, and each bottle may as well be worth its weight in Mora. Of course, this meant that both sides viewed it as a strategic resource. Ever since the resistance networks were active, clashes around large-scale wineries never stopped. The fighting over the large buildings at the core of such operations was exceptional fierce in that regard.

All original Combat Talents will be replaced with "Windward Arts". Travelers can select the Windward Arts they want to use before the game starts.

Secret Favors are Windward Arts that can be picked up that replace the Elemental Burst.

Rebel

  • If you play as a Rebel in the game, after the game starts, you must constantly move and hide to avoid the Hunter until the time limit is up. The longer a Rebel remains uncaught, the more Windtrace Coins obtained. At the end of the stipulated time, if one or more Rebels are left on the field, victory goes to the Rebels.
  • During the preparation phase, the Rebels need to quickly find good hiding spots, use their Windward Arts to disguise themselves as designated objects within the current map, place bait, or cleverly use the environment to hide and evade the Hunter.
Name Description Talent Cooldown
Windtrace Art Lay Bait.png Lay Bait Place a suitable piece of Bait in the area ahead to confuse the Hunter.

Note: This skill has two charges. Bait lasts indefinitely if it is not captured.

Normal Attack
Windtrace Art Transparency.png Transparency Enter hidden mode temporarily. During this time, you cannot be seen by the Hunter.

Hunter

  • If you play as a Hunter in the game, after the game starts, your task is to capture all the Rebels within the stipulated time. The various Arts of the Hunter can be used to detect the location of the opposing side and leave them shorn of their disguises.
  • The more Rebels a Hunter captures in the game and the less time it takes to capture the Rebels, the more Windtrace Coins obtained. At the end of the stipulated time, if the Hunter captures all the Rebels, victory goes to the Hunter.
  • During the preparation phase of Windtrace, the Hunter's field of vision will be obscured, and it will be impossible to view the paths that other Rebels take during the preparation phase. After the activity starts, the Stamina consumed by the Hunter in sprinting, climbing, and gliding will be greatly reduced.
