Genshin Impact 2.1 Version had introduced a new gameplay mechanism in the game called Fishing. Yes, we could previously “fish” in the game by blasting them with Klee or using bow characters to aim at them. But that was different since you could only collect fish meat no matter what fish it would be. There is a new event that will begin soon called the “Lunar Realm” event, which is related to fishing.
With the new mechanism, you’ll be able to catch a whole new variety of fish, thanks to the addition of baits to the game. We have an entire guide about fishing locations and how you can get the new polearm “The Catch”. Now, let’s look more into what the Genshin Impact Lunar Realm event is about and how it would play out in the game.
About Lunar Realm:
The fisherwoman of the Inazuma Fishing Association, Kujirai Momiji, has always dreamt of catching the legendary fish known as the “Lunar Leviathan”. She’s ordered all of her friends to look for him, and she’s asked you to accompany her on her search.
To unlock the event, you need to reach Adventure Rank 30, Complete the “Ritou Escape Plan” Archon Quest, Unlock the “Serenitea Pot” Housing System and complete the “Exploding Population” world quest.
The event will start on 10 September 2021 and will end on 20 September 2021. The event will follow server time so it will begin depending on your server.
Lunar Realm Gameplay:
You’ll have to perform several tasks, including some special fishing training. Over the first 7 days, the various phases of the event will be slowly unlocked. The special fishing training expects you to catch fish within a time limit. If you do it fast enough, you can receive all the 3 rewards in one go.
Every single day, you will have a special location where you have to finish your special training. Your map would show the location of the special training. You just need to choose the appropriate Bait and Rod for the specific type of fish you need. If you don’t know which fish needs which bait, you can always click here to refer to our guide and do it accurately.
It’s important to remember that in the training pool, you can only catch 50 fish every day. After then, the remaining fish would be released. It is to protect the fish species in Tevyat.
Finally, after knowing about the mystery behind the Lunar Leviathan, a special body of water would be unlocked for you to catch a mysterious ornamental fish. You can catch that fish with the help of “Glowgrass Bait” which can be available through the event. The ornamental fish only appears during a specific time. If you run out of the Glowgrass Bait, you can also get more from Kujirai Momiji.
The ornamental fish has only a limit of 5 per day. If you catch more than that, it would not appear in your Inventory. Glowgrass bait is only limited to that special body of water and you can also catch the other fish present in that pool like Crystalfish, Dawncatcher, etc.
Lunar Realm Event Rewards:
Alongside the usual rewards, completing this event also unlocks an Event-Exclusive Fishing Rod called “Moonstringer” and new furnishing for you Serenitea Pot.
Overall, the Genshin Impact Lunar Realm event seems a pretty fun event, since fishing has already been a lot of fun. Also with the fun comes tons of rewards and about 420 primogems from the event. So definitely do not miss out on the event. Have fun during the event!
