Genshin Impact: Realms of Guile and War Guide

The Realms of Guile and War event can be initiated by interacting with the wooden board once you complete the Chasmic Maze in the Perilous Trail quest.

You will face three rounds of battle with your selected team of 4 characters and after every round, you can only keep one character from your team and will need to choose 3 new characters to complete the roster.

The event is divided into 4 parts with a new part unlocking every day from May 31 allowing you to earn rewards such as Ascension materials, Primogems and a Twilight bow.

After starting the event, you will need to choose the characters, difficulty and stage. There are 3 difficulties to choose from: Default Animosity, Stern Antagonism and Apex Hostility. Do note that you will earn more rewards for selecting a higher level of difficulty in the challenge.

You can also choose any one of the four available stages: Drecliff Court, Kaleidoscope Cage, Insurgent Twilight and Utmost Deception. Press the Start button in the bottom right corner once you are done to head to the next screen.

Now it’s time to select four characters that you wish to take along in this combat challenge. You have the choice of selecting the trial characters provided by the game or using your own selection of characters during the challenge.

Since the first challenge is mostly filled with Cyro and Hydro enemies, it is recommended that you select a composition of freezing characters such as Yanfei, Xingqui, Kaeya and Barbara.

For the second challenge, we recommend picking up Itto, Zhongli, Ninguang and Gorou as they are effective against all sorts of enemies.

Once you are done with the character selection, you will need to choose the buffs called Stratagems which can you give your characters the extra edge in combat such as extra attack speed or a temporary level boost.

Choose the Strategems that best suit your composition of characters. After each round, you will also receive Strategems Shards that can be used to revive those downed characters in case you don’t have a healer in your team.

The game also provides you with the option to choose from normal difficulty or hard difficulty in certain stages of battle which can be useful if you wish to earn additional rewards by further enhancing the difficulty.

At the end of the round, you will be able to collect various rewards from the event panel which will help you progress in the game.

That’s it, now go ahead and participate in the Realm of Guile and War event in the game!
