How to do the Honkai: Star Rail Virtual Scentventure event

Greetings, esteemed special tester. As you go on through the Virtual Scentventure Event in Honkai Star Rail, the Cloudbot is your guide that reveals that the Department of Ecology has discovered “small creatures” on the space station emitting delightful scents capable of influencing human perception. Your role in this experiment is to calculate the potential risks associated with these scents.

Illusory Enemies

The scents you encounter will trigger illusions during battles. These illusions are not your usual boss enemies as they are specially created through olfactory stimulation. Each battle brings a different illusion, and testers can learn more about it by checking the Illusion Trait displayed at the beginning of each encounter.

Understanding these illusions is crucial for navigating through the event successfully. Prepare yourself for an adventure where the scents themselves become the source of extraordinary battles and immersive illusions, making every encounter in the Virtual Scentventure truly exceptional.

The test offers Trial Characters for testers to choose from, enhancing the immersive experience of the event. Select your preferred character wisely to navigate through the illusions and challenges presented by the scents.

Scent Plug-in

Researchers from the Department of Ecology have provided various scent plug-ins to gather more test data. Equipping different scent plug-ins activates diverse combat bonuses, adding strategic depth to your battles. Experiment with combinations to find the most effective setup against illusions.

A unique mechanic in this test is the Remaining Action Value, influenced by both player and enemy actions. Your performance in each stage is evaluated based on the total damage dealt to illusions and the remaining action value. The final score determines your rating, with SS being the highest achievable rating.

Honkai: Star Rail Virtual Scentventure Despair Mode

In the Honkai Star Rail Virtual Scentventure Event, you have the opportunity to face an additional layer of challenge in Despair Mode. This mode becomes accessible to you after successfully clearing all stages in Normal Mode and meeting specific requirements. Upon entering Despair Mode, you will experience a notable increase in difficulty, as the enemy levels are set at a fixed, higher level.

This heightened challenge allows you to test your skills under more demanding circumstances. It’s important to highlight that, unlike Normal Mode, Despair Mode removes the Trial Character section, requiring you to rely solely on your chosen characters’ abilities.

Despite the increased difficulty, you are encouraged to take on this mode at your own pace, adding an extra layer of strategy and excitement to your overall experience. As a token of appreciation for your participation in this challenging endeavor, remember to claim your well-deserved rewards.

The Cloudbot expresses gratitude for your engagement and is ready to assist with any further inquiries. Enjoy the heightened challenge of Despair Mode and savor the rewards that come with conquering this formidable aspect of the Virtual Scentventure Event. We will update this section once the event goes live and add some tips to beat despair mode in Virtual Scentventure.
