When is Inazuma coming Genshin?

Genshin Impact's long-awaited Inazuma region is finally launching on July 21. The moment Genshin Impact fans have been waiting for practically since the game came out is finally here. Inazuma, an oft-rumored, much-anticipated in-game area inspired by Japan, is launching on July 21. KotakuGenshin Impact's Biggest Update Yet Adds Japan-Inspired Region

The 2.0 Update, which is slated to arrive in the upcoming few days, will be adding the Inazuma region alongside a slew of other things. The Inazuma region is being eagerly awaited for quite a long time now, and it will be interesting to finally have it in the game.

While leaks suggested we will be getting five characters, we will be getting only three of them in 2.0, which includes Ayaka, Yoimiya, and Sayu. Out of these, Ayaka is clearly the winner in terms of popularity, as fans have been waiting for a long time for her arrival.

The first banner that will be arriving in the game in the 2.0 Update will be none other than the Ayaka banner. The next banner will be including both Sayu and Yoimiya. The first banner will go live at the same time as the 2.0 Update, on July 21st, 2021.

As of now, we don’t have a lot of leaks regarding the 4-star characters in the Ayaka banner. However, there have been rumors afloat that suggest that Chongyun, Ningguang, and Xingling could be the 4-star characters in the Ayaka banner. This has a high chance of being true, but considering that this source is not quite credible, we should take it with a huge grain of salt.

If you are looking for the ascension materials for Ayaka, you can find them below.

Genshin Impact 2.0 Impressions: 5 biggest takeaways

App Trigger 12 July, 2021 - 02:33am

Genshin Impact’s much awaited version 2.0 is on the horizon, and miHoYo did not hold back this time. There’s tons of new items, places to explore and characters in Inazuma, along with some great quality of life and gameplay improvements. Here are the five biggest takeaways from the Genshin Impact 2.0 reveal and what they could mean for the future of the game.

One of my favorite things about starting a new open world RPG is exploring the world. Genshin Impact had a massive open world right at the outset, and trekking to Liyue Harbor for the first time was one of the most memorable experiences I had. MiHoYo took extra care and attention when designing Inazuma, making a much more complex region for players to explore with more verticality that’s different than the mountain spires of Liyue. Inazuma will go underground, with a tunnels leading to subterranean lairs.

New characters are the show stealers of every update, and 2.0 brings whole cast of Inazuman characters. Three characters are set to appear in the event Wish banners for 2.0, with the rest expected to arrive soon. The five-star Ayaka, a sword user with a Cryo Vision and Yoimiya, an archer with a Pyro Vision will headline the two banners. The third character is the four-star Sayu, a Claymore-wielding ninja with an Anemo Vision. Notably, Sayu is the first claymore user with the child body type.

There were a few other characters introduced in this update, but not much is known about them or their abilities yet. We’ll have to see them for ourselves when we meet them in game.

With the new region, a new set of craftable weapons will be introduced. It seems that, going forward, each region will have their own set of weapons. The Infusion series is meant to be for Mondstadt, the Protype series is for Liyue, and new set of weapons with a distinct Inazuma flavor will be coming in 2.0. This expands options for free-to-play players especially.

Two new artifact sets will be arriving in 2.0: Emblem of Severed Fate and Shimenawa’s Reminiscence.

Emblem of Severed Fate’s two-piece bonus grants 20% Energy Recharge, and a four-piece set increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of your Energy Recharge, with a limit of 75% DMG bonus in total. This set looks great for characters who act as Burst supports, like Xiangling or Kazuha.

On the opposite end, Shimenawa’s Reminiscence gives an 18% bonus to ATK with two-pieces, just like the Gladiator’s set. The four-piece bonus turns Energy into power, removing 15 Energy when you use an Elemental Skill and giving a 50% Damage Bonus for Normal, Charged and Plunging attacks.

Cross-saves are finally here! Starting in 2.0, players on Playstation can link a miHoYo account and play on PC or mobile. Genshin Impact is, unfortunately, extremely poorly optimized for the PS4, leading many players stuck with the sub-par PS4 version unless they want to start over on a PC for a better gaming experience. With PS5s in short supply, players who started on Sony’s hardware now have the freedom to move over to PC as they please.

This bodes well for the alleged Switch version, though multi platform cross-saves outside of miHoYo and Sony have yet to be confirmed. Hopefully, everyone will be able to play freely across any system they have in the future.

Genshin Impact 2.0: Everything Revealed About Inazuma So Far

Screen Rant 12 July, 2021 - 02:33am

Similar to Mondstadt and Liyue's cohesive themes, Inazuma embodies the concept of being "the Nation of Eternity." Known as the "ocean archipelago" in early development, it's the only nation in Teyvat surrounded by water. While Inazuma has six islands in total, each has different regional experiences for players to enjoy in Genshin Impact's 2.0 update.

Based on real-life Japan's Byoubugaura Cliffs, according to miHoYo, Inazuma's unique islands will have upper and lower sections, contrasting beauty and tranquility above with danger below. New Electro mechanisms and mini-puzzles will encourage exploration, challenging players to find hidden spaces throughout the enviornment. The vegetation mirrors the purple hues of the Electro Element running through Inaumza, and two new flowers will be farmable - Naku Weeds and Sakura Blooms. This beautiful landscape is where Inazuma's story will unfold.

The 2.0 update trailer hints that, when someone loses their Vision, they also lose their ambition. Without ambition, the entire nation of Inazuma could become subdued under the Raiden Shogun - which could be vital to the "Eternity" she is seeking. While challenging the Vision Hunt Decree is challenging the deity herself, the inhabitants of Inazuma fear losing their Visions, so resistance is growing.

In addition to these three, there is also a resistance group forming on Watatsumi Island. As the brains of the operation, Sangonomiya Kokomi is the military leader of the resistance there. Gorou, a previously leaked Genshin Impact character with animal ears, is the Sangonomiya Troop leader.

After Watatsumi and Narukami, there are four islands left in Genshin Impact's Inazuma region. Seirai Island is constantly shrouded in thunderstorms, and Tsurumi Island has long been abandoned. Yashiori Island's defining feature is the skeletal remains of a giant serpent defeated by Baal long ago. The Raiden Shogun fought the beast with thunderous slashes, cleaving the island and the serpent in half to form Musoujin Gorge. Spiteful in its defeat, the serpent's vengeful spirit lives on as Tatarigami, who legend says is trapped inside Tatarasuna mountain on Kannazuka Island. The Tatarigami radiates immense Elemental power, which the Mikage Forge uses to craft swords at Tatarsuna.

Inazuma has been the biggest thing Genshin Impact fans want for some time. With an array of new story content, characters, enemies, and events set to arrive when it's released, there will likely be plenty of exciting content for players to dig through.

The Genshin Impact 2.0 update is set to release on July 21, 2021.

Monsters Aren't Worth Farming In Genshin Impact, And It's Frustrating

TheGamer 12 July, 2021 - 02:33am

I could write a novel about spreading yourself too thin in Genshin Impact. I think most folks, even the big spenders among us, would recommend you pick a main team and focus on building those characters for a while. Mihoyo will work you hard for resources in Genshin Impact, and if you aren’t diligently completing your daily chores seven times a week and maxing out on event reports, then you’re struggling. I wouldn’t label myself as someone who’s hardcore about the game anymore, but even when I was more diligent, I never had enough experience books or ascension materials to keep up with my characters.

That’s what I’m so dang frustrated about, by the way. There’s no point in handing me a measly three experience points when you know it doesn’t actually make a dent in leveling Genshin Impact characters. I laugh about it now, but the day Genshin Impact launched, I ran around in beginner areas grinding out mob kills because I thought I was doing something productive. Instead, I just wasted several hours of my life.

In most RPGs, even those of the gacha variety, I’ve found grinding out mobs to work just fine and experience items were a bonus. Every time I ascend a character in Genshin Impact—another process that is painfully slow—I feel that renewed wave of frustration because I know I can’t just belt the task out on my own terms. Mihoyo gating my process behind not just ascension items, but another round of experience items, really grinds my gears. But whatever, we all know I’ll be fetching those books when the game hits PS4 since I can’t seem to stay away from Teyvat.

Genshin Impact: Five Important Details From the 2.0 Update Livestream

EssentiallySports 10 July, 2021 - 01:27pm

The developers revealed how much effort they’ve put while developing Inazuma. Furthermore, the livestream also teased some new characters that will arrive in future updates. Here are the top five major things that miHoYo discussed in the livestream.

Finally, after months of waiting, players will see Inazuma arriving in the game. In the livestream, Inazuma looked beautiful and all the hard work from the developers’ team was showing off. The new region will also bring many puzzles, chests, and quests for players to discover.

Moreover, the 2.0 update will also continue the story of the current update. The new Archon quest looks very amazing and having Electro Archon as a primary threat is quite interesting. The developers also mentioned there is more to discover about the new region for the players once the update rolls out.

The update will also bring excitement in the shape of new enemies. First, the Megumi Kenki will be located on one of the islands as the Golden Apple Archipelago will be gone with the next update. Second, there will be a new addition to the Hypostasis family and this time it will be of Pyro element.

Third, a new Fatui Mage will make her appearance and all her attacks will be of Hydro element.

Fourth, a new type of enemy will also arrive which looks similar to Ruin Hunter and Ruin Guard. Last but not the least, we will also see some Electro Abyss Mages roaming in the Inazuma region.

Three new characters will arrive with the 2.0 update- Ayaka, Yoimiya, and Sayu. Ayaka and Yoimiya will be five-star characters, while Sayu will be a four-star character. Players who were desperately waiting for Ayaka from the beta version can rest as Ayaka’s banner will be first followed by Yoimiya.

Interestingly, there will be no new four-star character in Ayaka’s banner as Sayu will be featured in Yoimiya’s banner. Other than these three miHoYo also teased many more characters that will arrive in future updates. There are over seven characters that were highlighted in the livestream including the upcoming Electro Archon.

Weapons are very important to build a character. You have to give a proper weapon with good substat and passive to increase your character’s damage. Inazuma is the next region, and many players were wondering if they will get new craftable weapons with the next region.

miHoYo announced in the livestream that it will introduce five new craftable weapons for players. In addition to that two new five-star weapons will also appear in the weapon banner in the upcoming update.

Speaking of the weapon banner, miHoYo has also decided to bring some changes to the weapon banner with the 2.0 update. From the 2.0 update, you can choose the Weapon you want.

If you get any 5-star weapon that is not the one you chose, you will get 1 Fate Point. After getting 2 Fate Points, your next 5-star is guaranteed to be the chosen one.

However, if you get your weapon before this, your Points will reset. Unfortunately, the Points are also cleared when the banner is gone, even if you didn’t get the weapon.

Therefore, it looks like only whales will be able to get the most benefits from this new feature, but it’s good to see that miHoYo is taking some action after players’ regular complaints.

miHoYo told players that it will introduce two new artifact sets with the next update. One is Emblem of Severed Fate and the other is Shimenawa’s Reiniscence. Although the two-piece set bonus of both sets is not quite interesting, it can’t be said for the four-piece set bonus.

The four-piece set of both sets holds a huge potential to be a game-changer and shift the meta. Furthermore, players also claim that the Electro Traveler would become very powerful with the new Emblem of Severed Fate artifact set.
