Opponents and arena effects of Genshin Impact Contending Tides Day 1
To complete the Day 1 challenge of Contending Tides, players have to survive multiple waves of monsters while taking advantage of the arena effects.
The arena effects provide different buffs, such as an increase in ATK, an increase in elemental reaction damage, and plunging attack damage for different challenges.
On Day 1, the arena effects grant the following bonuses for staying inside an aura in the Contending Tides event:
- The Aura provides a 100% ATK bonus to the characters present within its range.
- If the character's stamina is above 50%, then scoring hits on the opponents will form shockwaves dealing AoE damage. The shockwave can be triggered once every 3 seconds.
The opponents on Day 1 of the Contending Tides event are as follows:
- Blazing Axe Mitachurl
- Hilichurl Berserker
- Electro Hilichurl Shooter
- Pyro Hilichurl Shooter
- Hilichurl Fighter
To win all the rewards, players are advised to attempt the "Extreme Difficulty" mode, as it includes the rewards for clearing the other two modes too.
To successfully beat the Extreme Difficulty mode, participants must meet three criteria within the given time period. They are:
- Defeat 20 opponents.
- Defeat 4 Blazing Axe Mitachurls.
- No character deaths during the challenge.
Once the respective day's rewards are collected, the same cannot be collected again. However, the challenge can be repeated multiple times. More information about the upcoming challenges can be found here.
