Genshin Impact Kaboomball Kombat Event Guide
To first start this event, you’ll need to go track down Albedo. Head to the island with the crafting table on it. You’ll spot his canvas, but he’s nowhere to be seen. Examine the canvas, and then a Dodofortress will just pop up out of the sand, initiating you into your first bout with the event and its mechanics.
You’ll need to be Adventurer Rank 21 to do this event, and you access the challenges from the canvas. Like the Painted Walls, you will have a large translucent square etched on the ground to show where the arena will be. You will need to stay in these so your normal attack gets replaced with the Dodoguard, making a little ball around you that can rebound shots from the Dodofortress. There’s two different kinds of guards this time around, a normal guard, and a perfectly-timed guard that does extra damage and can break shields if it has one up.
Step into the square, then serve your Wind-Blessed Harpastum at them to start the fight. These little challenges can be done solo or with one other person for two-player challenges, and the key to these is completing the event’s little side quests to earn Enigma Gears. Those are your event shop items you can exchange for stuff like Mora, XP Books, Primogems, and a special event Namecard.
One of the main mechanics of the fight is Fury Faze, which will slowly build up as you reflect balls back at it. When it gets right and angry at you upon completing the Fury Faze meter, it’ll activate this Fury Faze and pick up the pace, firing more and more balls at you in rapid succession. This is a best-case scenario because more balls means more points.
So there’s a few little additions to this scenario, first we’ll look at the special effect Kaboomballs that you’ll encounter during the fights.
The most difficult I’ve found to beat of the bunch is the Breezy-Burny Ball, because that thing is very difficult to catch up with. Keep mindful of the Twisty-Turny Ball too, that one is hard to see where it lands.
Next, we’ll examine the little powerups you can get during the fight called Shazamfruits.
It’s easy to forget to use these, or not notice them on the ground, but you’ll want to make an effort to pick them up. Especially the Ping Pong Fruit, as that can help you nail the trickier Kaboomballs.
You’ll earn score based on rebounds (20 points), perfect rebounds(24 points), and Dodofortress destruction(100 points). Don’t be discouraged if you don’t do well, as a lot of the mini-quests are accumulative, so even if you get a bad score, you can still make progress to the rewards.
That’s all there is to it, so get out there and get your toes in the sand! If you have any questions, feel free to jot them in the comments below. This is Cory from HPP, signing off!
