In Spino Blaster, you will control special water cannon to complete some marksmanship challenges by shooting Target Balls. There will be different types of Target Balls with different effects; however, stay clear of the blue-colored Brouhaha Balls, as they will deduct your points and will end your current combo. Get the required points to unlock rewards like Primogems, Mora, and more.
Sojourns of the Barking Fox
It is a special speed trial mode in which you will have to reach the destination within the given time period by controlling Barking Fox while collecting as many Adventure Coins as you can. However, make sure to dodge Sleetdross Fruits and Disruptor Orbs, as they will decrease the time left to complete the trial.
Dance of Flashing Thought
In this gameplay mode, you will have to defeat enemies to get Honed Will, and once the bar is full, you will get Honed Focus which will buff your combat ability. Get the required score to get multiple rewards.
This is a tabletop game mode in which you will have to shoot Finchballs, and based on which area it stops, you will get points, with Red Zone awarding the highest. Score the required number of points to earn rewards.
Secret Summer Paradise Event Rewards
While completing the event modes, you will be able to get Fascinating Phenocrysts that you can use to invite "Fantastical Evening Star” Layla (Cryo). Apart from this, you will also be able to earn Primogems, Mora, Hero's Wit, and other rewards from the event.
In addition to this, you will have to explore Veluriyam Mirage and collect Joyeux Vouchers in order to obtain Kaeya's outfit "Sailwind Shadow," and other rewards like Primogems, Mora, Character Ascension Rewards, and more.
Joyeux Vouchers can be found anywhere in Veluriyam Mirage, including Voucher Boxes and Fascinating Chests, and once you collect a certain number of vouchers, you will obtain the following gadgets to help you look for the remaining ones quickly.
- Flowing Joyspar: Find Joyeux Vouchers in a set AoE.
