New Region – Inazuma

Inazuma is the latest region where the Traveler continues his journey, which in real life is based on the country of the rising sun, Japan. Unlike Mondstadt and Liyue, Inazuma is surrounded by the sea on all sides and consists of six main islands, often accompanied by a strong sea breeze and thunderstorms.Although Inazuma is greatly affected by fleeting lightning and the Electro element, the Electro Archon who rules the area has turned to the pursuit of eternity.

Throughout the adventure in Inazuma, players will be able to explore the unique cultural landscapes, stories, secrets, and historical connections to Inazuma and the Electro Archon on each of the different islands, as well as the answers to eternity from the Electro Archon herself.

Genshin Impact 1.6 Update

These new bosses are crucial as they will drop the new materials needed for Inazuman character’s leveling up and ascension. That being said, it also means we cannot pre-farm for Ayaka, Yoimiya, or even Sayu, and will have to wait until the update drops to start farming for these characters.

New Events

The Serenitea Pot system will be getting some updates as well. Travelers will receive a new item in their inventory called the Seed Dispensary. This will allow you to harvest seeds when you pick up plants from the world of Teyvat. e.g. picking up Mint, will also give you Mint seeds.

From there, you can bring those seeds and plant them in your Serenitea Pot. Of course, you’ll need to purchase plant beds to plant these seeds, and they will be able to harvest approximately 2 to 3 days later.

Apart from that, Serenitea Pot system will be getting its load increased, so players will be able to add more furnishing, and more decor into the Serenitea Pot.

Example: The 5-star weapons Skyward Pride and Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds are the promotional weapons of Epitome Invocation.

You chart a course towards Skyward Pride. After wishing, if the first 5-star weapon obtained is Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds, you will receive 1 Fate Point. However, if you obtain Skyward Pride after wishing, you will not accumulate any Fate Points.

After charting a course towards Skyward Pride, if the first and second 5-star weapon obtained are Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds, and 2 Fate Points are accumulated, the third 5-star weapon obtained is guaranteed to be Skyward Pride.

After Skyward Pride is obtained, the Fate Points will be cleared. If you have charted a course towards Skyward Pride, and have accumulated Fate Points, those Fate Points will be cleared if you want to change course or cancel altogether.

After the Version 2.0 update, core information about wishes can be obtained by clicking on the Details button in the lower left corner of the wish screen.
