Genshin Impact Shadows Amidst Snowstorms – Act 1: Snowy Past quest
Let’s talk about Act 1: Snowy Past, the initial quest requirement for the Shadows Amidst Snowstorms event in Genshin Impact.
The quest begins in Mondstadt’s alchemy shop before taking you to the Adventurer’s Camp in Dragonspine. Along the way, you’ll meet Sucrose, Amber, Albedo, Eula, and, yes, even Bennett. Most of the objectives here are fairly straightforward, so here’s the gist:
- Once you reach Albedo’s camp in Dragonspine, you’re asked to follow the footprints to catch a thief. These appear as glowing markers.
- Later, you’ll see Bennett trapped in a cage. Just click on the glowing markers to find a key that will free Bennett.
After a short discussion, the group discovers that Albedo might be up to no good, though the renowned alchemist suggests that there’s an impostor who’s masquerading as him. However, Albedo will reveal his secret to the Traveler: he’s actually just a construct (yikes!). His master, Rhinedottie of Khaenri’ah, built him to become the pinnacle of her alchemical endeavors. Not only that, but the other crafted construct was the serpent named Durin. Yes, that Durin whose bones litter Dragonspine. It’s why the energies from the Festering Desire sword also reacted to Albedo’s touch given that it’s made from the essence of his “brother.”
All right, with this part done, you can check the event panel. You’ll see that multiple tasks are available. Before we get to those, let’s take a look at the event shop in the next part of our guide.
