- Limited-time events in Genshin Impact bring excitement to the community, allowing players to explore new areas and witness unique character interactions.
- Missing out on these events can have negative consequences, as valuable resources and rewards are only available during the limited timeframe.
- There is a need for Genshin Impact to implement features that allow players to replay events and obtain missed rewards, as seen in Honkai: Star Rail.
It was suggested in a recent leak that the next temporary region for Genshin Impact will bear similarities to Fontaine. Genshin Impact players love the limited-area events that come up and most remember the first Golden Apple Archipelago fondly. These limited-time events encourage players to be on as often as they can manage to be able to explore every inch of the new land and reap all its rewards. However, that does also mean that if anything is missed, it’s gone forever.
As lovely as limited-time events are, they are just that: limited. In a game like Genshin Impact where every resource matters due to strict resin costs for farming, missing an event like this can be detrimental. There are easy solutions that could be put in place to increase player satisfaction as well as keep those rewards around, and that would be to make these events permanent. Honkai: Star Rail did it, and it’s easy for Genshin Impact to do the same.

Recent leaks imply that Genshin Impact could change its handling of five-star weapons in one way, which would have big ramifications.

The Benefits of Genshin Impact’s Limited-Time Regions
During these limited-time events, the community is excited about seeing the new area and the quest awaiting them. Exploring the new area and seeing any easter eggs, like 3.8’s event having Genshin Impact slimes that resembled the event crew, can be thrilling. It also means that the community gets to see characters who might not normally have been able to interact with each other come together.
When new characters come together to appear in these events, it always sparks creativity and anticipation in the community as they imagine all the fun the characters get to have. It can be exciting to see characters like Genshin Impact‘s Kokomi interact with Collei, for example, like they did the last time. Though it can sometimes feel like the characters were picked at random, they always fit together well and most often there are new skins for players to enjoy as well. Some of the characters to get limited-time event discounted outfits are:
The Issues With a Limited-Time Region
As the name implies, these events are indeed limited. They aren’t something players can experience again. The only way to relive the experience is to watch old playthroughs of the event. But even that doesn’t give players the missed-out-on rewards. Genshin Impact is a resource-heavy RPG game. It’s described as being very “grindy” by many who play it. Any resources like Genshin Impact‘s crowns, EXP books, Mora, leveling materials, or other resources are all highly valuable, and it can sting to lose out on these if players aren’t available during that patch.
And though people may be tired of people comparing Genshin Impact to Honkai: Star Rail, the very simple truth is that that game does some things that Genshin Impact needs to be doing. While players have been begging for features that would let them replay events and get rewards for them, it’s already a feature in Honkai: Star Rail. If players could replay these events, that would help wonderfully for newer players who weren’t there to see these great events in their prime.
Some things get lost to these old events, lore, and rewards alike. For players who weren’t there in version 1.1 to meet Scaramouche, that event and its lore about the false sky is completely gone. For those who missed out on the Cinnabar Spindle, Genshin Impact‘s Albedo’s best weapon right now, they will only be able to get the second-best weapons and that is if they are lucky. There’s a lot of good about limited events, but there’s a lot to be iffy about as well.
