The Genshin Impact Spices From the West event is a limited-time event from the 2.6 Update in which players assist an NPC from Sumeru named Nazafarin by using “Fragrant Seasonings” to create elaborate spiced dishes. The resulting meals can be offered to characters in the Serenitea Pot in order to earn Companionship EXP.
In addition to this, there are plenty of other rewards available for successfully completing a certain number of recipes, including Primogems, Mora, and Character EXP Materials. New recipes unlock every day for the first 7 days of the event, so be sure to return to the Spices From the West Event Guide to learn how to complete every recipe.
How to Play Spices From the West
The Spices From the West event is live from 10:00 Server Time on May 14, 2022 until June 7, 2022 03:59 Server Time. When the event ends, any un-used Fragrant Seasonings and Fragrant Dishes will expire.
In order to fully participate in the event, you must be at least Adventure Rank 28:
- If you are above Adventure Rank 20, you are able to follow recipes and create Fragrant Seasonings.
- To use the Seasonings to create dishes, you must be Adventure Rank 28 and have unlocked the Serenitea Pot and completed the “Idle Teapot Talk” quest.
To begin the event, speak to Nazafarin at the wharf at Liyue Harbor. You can then select a Fragrant Seasoning recipe to attempt.
Create Fragrant Seasonings
Each Fragrant Seasoning recipe requires different ingredients, which you may need to collect beforehand if you don’t already have them.
Once you’ve selected a Seasoning to concoct, you must add each recipe to the pot at the correct time. Note the highlighted ingredient on the banner above the pot, and then press the spoon button when the moving needle on the slider beneath the pot passes over the corresponding zone.
The golden spoons underneath the slider represent the attempts you have remaining. This depletes by 1 if you make a mistake and also whenever the needle reachers either side of the slider. Don’t wait too long to add your ingredients!
If you follow the recipe correctly, you recieve the Fragrant Seasoning. You may repeat this process until you reach 3 successful attempts.
Use Seasonings to Make Fragrant Dishes
You can create Fragrant Dishes by using the Fragrant Seasoning on a Delicious Dish. Note that dishes you have converted will expire when the event ends, so be sure to use them before June 7.
Invite Companions to Taste
Offer the Fragrant Dish to a Genshin Impact character in your Serenitea Pot in order to recieve 100 Companionship EXP (if they like it!) and hear their reaction to the interesting dish you have created. Whenever you unlock a new recipe, the cap on the number of times you can gain Companionship EXP increases by 3.
The event page shows you how many times you have earned Companionship EXP; throughout the event, the maximum Companionship EXP you can earn is 21.
If your characters all have maximum Companionship EXP already, you’ll receive a warning before you offer them the dish.
