Genshin Impact: Dragonspine Special Training – Day One Combat Training Guide
The Genshin Impact: Dragonspine Special Training event is in full swing, with three different fun events to earn rewards. One of them is the Battle Training event, which lets you battle waves of enemies while battling the chill of Dragonspine.
For the first day of the event, you will be able to participate in the first two challenges. These are located in different parts of Dragonspine. Here is the location of the first combat training challenge:
Here is the location of the second combat training challenge:
As you approach each challenge, you’ll need to activate a sigil to begin. Each challenge seal is surrounded by a variety of gadgets and scarlet quartz, which can turn the tide of your fight.
Gather all the Scarlet Quartz you can before starting the fight. If you don’t, the sigil will start in a “Cold Source” state. This emanates cold air which increases the rate of Sheer Cold on your characters and gives enemies a survivability buff.
Attack the mechanisms around the seal with the Scarlet Quartz in hand. Once these three mechanics are activated, the sigil will change from Source Cold to “Heat Source”, which decreases Sheer Cold buildup.
The first challenge consists of 18 enemies. These enemies are comprised of ice shields wielding Hilichurls and Mitachurls. The second challenge consists of 15 enemies, which are made up of Cryo Abyss Mages. These fights can be tough if you don’t change Source Cold’s state and bring in the wrong characters.
Cryo shields are abundant in both of these challenges, so it’s advisable to bring characters with plenty of Pyro AoE. These characters will help break Cryo Shields to make your fights go a little smoother. Characters that greatly help include Xiangling, Bennett, Hu Tao, Diluc, and other Pyro DPS characters.
If you don’t have many Pyro characters, you can also use characters like Venti, Kazuha or Sucrose. The mobs that spawn in these fights are easy to control, so using these three Anemo characters can also help fights go quickly.
