Genshin Impact’s “Bantan Sango Case Files: The Warrior Dog” event has begun, introducing a series of animal rescue quests. One of them is a stealth mission where you must find and rescue animals while trying to avoid getting detected by enemies. The quest itself is interesting, but it seems like the new enemy canine is attracting more attention from some of the travelers for their insanely high HP.
In this event, travelers are tasked to investigate the “mass disappearances of little animals” happening in Inazuma region to help the Bantan Sango Detective Agency. There are numerous obstacles awaiting you at each Place of Interest, and in the currently available “Place of Interest: Hiding Spot,” enemies named Canine Bunshin/Black Shadow are patrolling the area.
If a Canine Bunshin finds you, you’ll not be able to rescue the little animals for a certain amount of time, so you have to avoid stepping into their line of sight. The game explains that they are “very capable combatants,” and “Engaging them may not be the wisest option,” so stealth is the way to go.
However, when you’re told not to do something, it’s only natural to want to try it out. Some players were not able to resist the urge to take on the challenge. Although their HP is extremely high, it’s not infinite. They’ll eventually fall if you keep attacking it. They do make use of Electro-elemental ranged attacks and explosives to fight you, but the attacks are not that fierce. These characteristics made Canine Bunshin a perfect sandbag for travelers.
Genshin Impact is currently available for PS4, PS5, PC, iOS, and Android. You can check out the details of the “Bantan Sango Case Files: The Warrior Dog” event here.
