Well, Genshin Impact players may not actually get the Seelie itself this week (it depends on how they play), but beginning Friday (January 8) the event that will lead to obtaining a Mini-Seelie will begin. The “Lost Riches” event, which was first mentioned as part of the live-stream event held before Christmas, is a treasure hunt. With the help of a Treasure-Seeking Seelie, that will only be there for the duration of the event itself, players will search for buried Iron Coins that they will later trade in for one of three event gadgets. You guessed it. The gadgets are Mini-Seelies.
There are three of these Mini-Seelies to choose from and players must make a choice. Unfortunately, we’ll only be able to obtain one of them — at least during this event. The phrasing on the event post makes it sound like there will be opportunities to gain the other two later on. So we may have an entire collection at some point.
Of course, Seelies aren’t the only goodies players will get out of this event. Once specific treasure areas have been completed, players will unlock clues that lead them to other rewards, such as Primogems and the usual suspects.
The event runs until January 18, and players have until the 22nd to use up the Iron Coins in the event shop, so there should be plenty of time to get your own Seelie and other goodies.
We also have a bit of character news today. While miHoYo did not post an actual date for this, is appears that Ganyu’s arrival is not far off. Around the same time the event post went up last night, the dev team also dropped an overview for Ganyu, the Yuehai Pavillion’s secretary. You might remember that she was also detailed in the stream last month and is one of the new characters whose abilities have a flower thing going on. Since the event update is due this week, it’s pretty likely we’ll be seeing her hit the banners soon.
