The Genshin Impact Wind-Blessed Harpastum is a new item you can get from Barbara’s quest, and people are wondering how to use it. They have obtained the Harpastum, they’ve found the puzzles where they need to use it, but they don’t know how to activate the ball. Well, the answer to this conundrum is actually pretty simple. We’ll show you what you need to do in our How to Use Wind-Blessed Harpastum Genshin Impact guide.
How to Use Genshin Impact Wind-Blessed Harpastum
To use the Wind-Blessed Harpastum in Genshin Impact, you first have to equip it, because it’s a gadget. The game doesn’t make this clear, which is what has been causing people trouble. So, head into your inventory and navigate into the Gadget tab (the backpack-looking icon in the top of the screen. Find the Harpastum in in that section of the inventory, click on it, and then click Equip in the bottom right of the screen. Once you’ve done that, you can see the button prompts to use the Harpastum in the bottom right. The icon above your burst attack puts the ball in your hands, and the one on the left throws it (Z and E on PC, respectively).
Now, how the Harpastum works depends somewhat on the activity you’re in. For example, in the case of the Dodo-King’s Painted Wall, you have to stand in the rectangle, activate the ball, and throw it at the wall. Then, you have to use your attack to bounce the ball back at the wall until it breaks completely. When it comes to how to use the Genshin Impact Wind-Blessed Harpastum with the Hymnal Rings, the first step is to equip the ball. Then, stand on the rock platform until it lights up and the rings activate. Then, it’s just a matter of throwing the ball and hit the target. This is made somewhat trickier by some rings spinning around and sending the ball in different directions, or splitting them in two. Overall, though, these mini-puzzles aren’t too hard.
