How to get Lisa’s free skin in Genshin Impact

You can get “A Sobriquet Under Shade” through the “Second Blooming” event

Genshin Impact’s patch 3.4 added a new free skin, if you complete the “Second Blooming” event before it ends. The skin, “A Sobriquet Under Shade,” is a Sumeru-themed academic outfit for Lisa, the free electro mage we love so much.

In order to participate in “Second Blooming,” you have to meet the following requirements:

  • Adventure Rank 20 or higher
  • Complete the Archon Quest ”Song of the Dragon and Freedom
  • Complete the Story Quest ”Tempus Fugit Chapter: Act I”

The quest for this event also takes place in Sumeru, so if you just started and don’t have that part of the map unlocked yet, you should book it over there.

All you have to do to get Lisa’s skin is complete all five levels in the “Second Blooming” event and earn at least 10,000 points combined from each level. The levels unlock over time, and by Feb. 4, all of the levels should be unlocked for you to play and grab that Lisa skin.

Scoring enough shouldn’t be too much of a concern, as the combat-based event gives you lots of powerful characters to borrow even if you don’t have any built. We were able to get 11,000 points by only completing one level on the “normal” difficulty. The lower difficulty you complete the levels on, the less points you’ll score, but you should be able to grab the skin just by playing each level on easy.

If you are seeing this guide after the event ends on Feb. 13, then unfortunately you just have to buy the skin if you want it. The outfit will cost 1,680 Genesis Crystals, just like other event skins. Note that you cannot buy this skin with Primogems. You have to use Genesis Crystals, which you can only obtain by spending real-life money.
