Hello travelers! The Genshin Impact development team is back with some exciting details on version 1.5, which arrives on April 28th. In this latest update, Beneath the Light of Jadeite, you can hone your adventure and combat skills with new events and formidable new enemies, continue your journey with Zhongli, meet new friends Eula and Yanfei, and move on. time with other of your favorite characters, creating new memories ranging from fun to philosophical.
Plus, we’re delighted to finally invite all travelers to Teyvat to create your own home away from home, where you can enjoy much-needed rest and respite from your busy journey through this world.
More fun and friendship
If you enjoyed the Hangout events added to the game in version 1.4, you might be happy to know that version 1.5 gives you the opportunity to continue your hangout story with Noelle and start spending time with Diona, the popular bartender of The Cat’s Tail in Mondstadt. .
We would also like to introduce you to two new characters: Eula, the Spindrift Knight of Mondstadt, and Yanfei, a legal adviser from Liyue Harbor.
As the captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company, Eula is a five-star character, a Claymore user, and the bearer of a Cryo Vision. His elemental skill, Icetide Vortex, increases his interrupt resistance and DEF while inflicting Cryo DMG. Her elemental explosion inflicts AoE Cryo DMG on nearby enemies and creates a Lightfall sword that follows her for a period of time, increasing her resistance to interrupt. Dealing damage, Eula charges the Lightfall sword until it explodes at the end of its duration, dealing AoE Physical DMG. Learn more about Eula in her next story quest.
Meanwhile, Yanfei is a half-human, half-enlightened young beast born in Liyue in peacetime. She has dedicated herself to studying and interpreting Liyue’s extensive legal code and helping her clients get out of the most complicated legal disputes. The Four Star Catalyst Carrier using the Pyro generates Scarlet Seals with her Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Blast. Scarlet Seals provide a stackable buff that decreases Yanfei’s stamina consumption and can be consumed to increase the potency and range of his charged attacks.
For those of you interested in Liyue’s culture and history, I hope you enjoy picking up where you left off with Zhongli to explore more legends and relics from the distant past. But be warned – sometimes digging up the past reveals why it was buried so deep in the first place …
Prepare to face new enemies
In version 1.5, a new Trounce domain and a new Boss Enemy will be introduced, offering perilous challenges for valuable rewards.
Azhdaha, the “Lord of Vishaps,” is a formidable adversary locked deep underground, with the power to unleash various elemental attacks and change the environment of the battlefield. Once unlocked, Travelers will be able to challenge the Trounce Estate “Under the Dragon-Queller” and claim rare weekly rewards.
Recently, a new boss level enemy has also been discovered in Dragonspine. The Cryo Hypostasis is the latest addition to the Hypostasis series, and in addition to bringing its unique fighting style to the mix, Travelers will also have to face Sheer Cold during battle.
Another foe worth showing off is the Abyss Reader: Violet Lightning, a New Enemy of the Abyss. Unlike the Abyss Herald introduced in version 1.4, the Abyss Lector prefers to use ranged attacks and uses the power of Electro and Hydro. If that’s not enough to deal with, some of his attacks also deduct the player’s elemental energy.
There is nothing like a homemade beer
Do you still remember this magic teapot belonging to a certain adeptus granny? Well, now you will have a chance to get your very own “Serenitea Pot”, courtesy of Madame Ping. Enter a kingdom you can call your own and build the house of your dreams!
Followers of Liyue possess a number of miraculous abilities, one of which allows them to manifest an entire kingdom in a medium such as a teapot. Once you own the Serenitea Jar, you’ll be prompted to choose from several kingdom styles when you first enter: Floating Mansion, Emerald Peak, and Cool Isle. Each has a Mondstadt or Liyue style building with several interior rooms and plenty of space for outdoor recreation.
To make your kingdom a place you can call home, you will need to reshape it inside and out. Fortunately, Tubby Spirit Teapot will be on hand to help you with this task. As you browse Teyvat, you will discover different furnishing plans, which can be used to make furniture for your home. The more furniture you make, the more trust you can gain from Tubby, and the more help and resources Tubby can offer in return. Once your trust rank is high enough, Tubby can even help you change kingdom layouts.
The Adept Power that generated your Realm will also generate Realm Currency over time. As you place more furniture in your realm, the power of the adepts will increase further, generating even more realm currency. Realm currency can be exchanged in Tubby’s Realm Depot for furniture and items, or exchanged with the Traveling Teapot Vendor, when he presents himself, for valuable goods and rare resources. You can also invite your friends to visit you in your kingdom.
The Serenitea Pot element and the realm to which it gives access will be added and supported from version 1.5. Other game modes and features will follow in future updates.
We would also like to mention some gameplay optimizations to look forward to in this release. The first three times you claim rewards in a week from Trounce Domains, it will only cost you 30 Original Resin. In addition, you will now earn double the amount of Companion EXP for the game completed in co-op.
New challenges and seasonal events with bountiful rewards will also be offered, but we will keep details on these at a later date.
And finally: we are extremely happy to announce that a native version of Genshin Impact for PlayStation 5 will be released on April 28. With native PlayStation 5 support, 4K resolution, improved textures, and faster load times are offered.
We look forward to sharing more details with all of you in the near future, so watch this space.
