In the Genshin Impact 2.4 livestream, developer miHoYo announced a new skin for Ningguang, the Tianquan of the Liyue Qixing and a four-star Geo catalyst user whose wealth is personified through the elusive Jade Chamber.
Ningguang is an ever-so-important character in Liyue, having played a huge role in its economic development and its victory against Osial. And despite her love for Mora, she’s shown to be willing to sacrifice the Jade Chamber for the sake of the nation.
Ningguang will be getting her first skin, the Orchid Evening Gown, in the Lantern Rite event in Version 2.4—the Fleeting Colors in Flight—which is set to release on Jan. 5, 2022. Based on the livestream, players will be able to obtain her skin in exchange for event currency and by completing the Event Questline, essentially making it free.

Genshin Impact has yet to release details of how much event currency Ningguang’s skin will cost, so stay tuned for further updates. On that note, it hasn’t been confirmed whether or not the Outfit will be available after the event ends.
However, Barbara’s skin from the Golden Apple Archipelago was placed in the Character Outfits Shop for 1,680 Genesis Crystals after the event period. As a result, there’s a huge possibility for Ningguang’s skin to likewise be purchasable from the Shop after the Lantern Rite event—but this information is currently still speculative and should be taken with a grain of salt.
