The "Three Realms Gateway Offering" event at Genshin Impact 2.5 will act as a challenge for adventurers in Enkanomiya. Each area will be haunted by an unknown entity. Characters in a party will continuously accumulate corrosive darkness while stepping foot within this area, therefore taking damage.

A certain gadget, known as the Bokuso Box, will further assist the characters in resisting the corruption. In addition, it will also grant everyone with new abilities as well. The event will last for the entirety of the 2.5 update, where players can get rewards such as Primogems and a 4-star Catalyst weapon called Oathsworn Eye.
