Genius Invokation TCG details
Genshin Impact players can win in this new game mode by defeating all of their opponent's character cards. Both sides have three character cards, so it's up to the rest of the cards you draw when it comes to making certain plays.
The number on the top left of a character card shows how much HP is left. The little diamonds on the right side show you how close that character card is to getting its Elemental Burst.
While there are Elemental Reactions in this game mode, the Genshin Impact 3.3 livestream didn't focus too heavily on that aspect.
At the end of each turn, you will roll some eight-sided dice. There are seven natural elements, plus an omni-elemental side that can be used for anything. Character cards require a certain number of these elements in order to attack. These dice can also be used for other cards or to switch active characters.
Genius Invokation TCG also has Player Experience and Player Levels. Both of these functionally work similarly to other level systems in Genshin Impact, where there are certain tiers that you can reach for some rewards.
You earn Lucky Coins by defeating opponents and completing certain objectives, which can be used to buy new cards. The above image serves as a perfect example, but there are far more items to buy than just what's listed there. You can even purchase Dynamic Skins if you want your cards to have more animations.
That's it for the important details on Genshin Impact 3.3's Genius Invokation TCG. It's worth mentioning that this game mode will be live once Version 3.3 launches, which should happen at 11 am (UTC+8) on December 7, 2022.
