Five Flushes of Fortune is the name of one of the first events of Genshin Impact version 1.3. You are tasked to take pictures instead of doing daily requests or exchanging items like the one with Marvelous Merchandise.
During the event, there will be a specific color each day and the item will be informed for you to take pictures of. Whenever the picture is taken, you will be given a colored photograph. There are a total of five colors and when you have one of each, you are able to exchange them for a treasure trove that has primogems and the other goodies to help you to build character.
Way to use camera in Genshin Impact
The camera should appear in the same place on your UI or at the bottom of the screen for those who are using mobile. Once you have equipped the camera, it is your best time to start taking pictures. It is known as another location where the things can be a bit confusing as it is different from the way you usually do when taking photos in the game.
The first thing that you will need to do is to check out the daily banner in order to see the color and the subject that is currently featured for the event. Keep in mind that it will change every day at the same time the dailies reset. For instance, day one was a red item and the thing named silk flower bushes worked for the shoot. However, day two, changed everything by using blue creatures. On this day, everyone was challenged to photograph cryo enemies.
Once you have successfully identified and found an item that is suitable with the events description, the next thing that should be done is to pull out the kamera using the buttons located next to its icon, which will vary by your platform.
For your information, there is no shutter button on the kamera and it will automatically take pictures for you. In case you want to tell if your kamera is about to take a picture, you will have to look out for a big circle that can be found around the photograph subject and distortion such as static occurring on screen.
Doing so will add a photo to your inventory. Feel free to check the event section in your menu if you want to see what colors you are missing. Do remember that the kamera will not work if you are in combat. Another thing to keep in mind is the fact that you will have to use the zoom feature if you want to adjust shots you are taking from a distance for the blue circle to appear. According to The Gamers, the kamera is designed and programmed not to photograph anything other than qualifying items and enemies. In addition, there is also a limit of the photos that can be taken by the player every day, which is only ten photos.
Way to grab the kamera
In case you do not have kamera yet and want to know how to grab one, here is the guide.
Rather than the screenshot camera that a lot of players are familiar with, the event named Five Flushes of Fortune requires you to use a special key item. In order to get the kamera, as a player, you will have to travel to Liyue Harbor and talk to the character Ji Tong. By doing so, you will be rewarded with Adventure Rank 20 and above the tool. As for the kamera, it will automatically be added to your inventory, in the gadget section. If you want to equip the item, you can just go to the gadgets menu, hover over it, and then press Select. In the end, the kamera should appear in the same place on your UI.
Way to photograph a red item in Genshin Impact
For everyone who is reading this on the day of the event, it is a must for you to photograph a red item. Here is the list of the items that will work for this and the location to find them:
- Sunsettias and Apples: This one is able to be found widely in the wild.
- Flaming Flowers: This one is able to be found near the cave of Pyro Regisvine.
- Silk Flowers: This one is able to be found around the temple of Liyue.
- Jueyun Chillis: This one is able to be found in Qingce Village.
- Snapdragons: This one is able to be found everywhere, especially near rivers.
- Windwheel Asters: This one is able to be found commonly in the wild, including Windrise Statue of the Seven.
Usually, a red item is also able to be found in more places apart from the ones mentioned above. The difference is that it takes as many as your daily allocation of film will allow. So, you are recommended to fast travel to which place that you want and focus on the above red items.
Way to photograph the other ones
As mentioned earlier, there are a total of five colors of Five Flushes of Fortune. Apart from the red items, the other ones include blue creatures, red creatures, blue items, and yellow items. The blue creatures are found in the Dragonspine. Cryo Slimes, one of the blue creatures, are able to be found in the Dawn Winery. The red creatures’ locations are at Hillichurl, the camps that can be found everywhere outside the main city. You can also find them around Jueyun Chili. You can hunt the blue items by teleporting to Wolvendom. As for the yellow items, the easiest, they are able to be found by teleporting to either the Eagle’s Gate domain or the Galesong Hill waypoint on Cape Oath to the northwest of it. One of the yellow items called Sunsettias grows on the trees all over this area, so it should be no problem for you to grab the required shots in a hurry.
