Genshin Impact Hidden Strife Event Gameplay and Mechanics
Screenshot by our guides Head to the Hidden Strife waypoint in Falcon Coast and interact with the red ley line to find seven challenges that unlock gradually over the first seven days of the event. You need to complete all seven on the lowest or highest difficulty to get the Primogem rewards (60 per challenge, 420 total).
Vicious Battle and Dire Strait modes
Each challenge consists of two battle modes: Vicious Battle and Dire Straits. You must complete Vicious Battle once on any difficulty level to unlock its corresponding Dire Straits mode, which is a much harder version of the challenge. Completing Dire Straits will only net you a small additional reward (Mystic Enhancement Ores), so you can choose to ignore it altogether.
Ley line residue
Under each challenge and game mode, you will find a description of the ley line remnant. This indicates all the combat bonuses you will receive by fulfilling certain conditions. It’s a good idea to read ley line stubs and build teams that can take advantage of them, especially for the Dire Straits mode.
After selecting a challenge, click the Select Difficulty button at the bottom right of the screen to choose between Perilous, Quandry, and Desperate. Completing a higher difficulty also unlocks all rewards for lower difficulties, so it’s highly recommended to choose Desperate from the start if you want to get all the rewards. But if you only care about Primogems, select Perilous.

To complete each challenge, you simply need to complete all of the challenge objectives within the time limit.
