In a press statement, mihoYo said, “In an update that is coming soon, the story begins when Klee receives a mysterious letter from “King Dodo” threatening to take Dodoco from him. To help Klee and Dodoco, Traveler will sail on a ship called “Waverider” and explore islands scattered across remote sea areas in search of the mysterious “Dodoland”. During the quest, players will be tested against a series of challenges, including a fierce battle with Maguu Kenki. This new monster can summon ghosts, deal Anemo and Cryo damage, and can only dropped in melee combat.After completing these challenges, players can earn event currency to redeem valuable resources and the new four-star catalyst “Dodoco Tales” for the full refinement of the Event Shop.
