Genshin Impact is an open-world game where players have to discover some hidden truths about Teyvat. They have to build a team of four characters and defeat enemies on their journey. However, a lot of players argue that miHoYo is not releasing more content in the game and most of them are already at end-game.

Considering the players’ feedback, miHoYo will release a lot of content in the 1.5 update. The update will comprise story quests, events, new characters, and enemies.

The 1.5 update could be a game-changer in Genshin Impact

Since the game’s launch, using elemental reactions has been a broken and largely used strategy. In Genshin Impact, different elemental reactions give a significant amount of damage. Several players love to trigger Melt and Vaporize elemental reactions as, by far, these two deal tremendous damage as compared to others. They can trigger Melt by using Pyro and Cryo elements together; whereas using Pyro and Hydro characters triggers Vaporize.

It looks like with the 1.5 update, miHoYo is trying to change this meta in a different direction. In the upcoming update, developers are introducing two new sets of artifacts called Tenacity of the Millelith and Pale Flame.

miHoYo might plan on shifting the meta from elemental reactions to more physical damage dealers. The Pale Flame artifact is also a sign, as it will focus on physical damage dealers.

The two-piece set of this artifact will increase physical damage by 25%; whereas the four-piece set will increase ATK by 9% for seven seconds whenever the wielder’s elemental skill hits an opponent. Furthermore, this effect stacks up to two times and can occur every 0.3 seconds. Interestingly, the two-piece set effect is increased by 100% upon reaching two stacks.

Moreover, a new claymore weapon is also coming in the 1.5 update. The sub-stat it provides is a physical damage bonus and Razor can benefit a lot from this weapon. We also saw Eula using the new weapon in the trailer of the 1.5 update. Hence, it might be a sign that the new five-star character will be more focused on being a great physical damage dealer.

Currently, there are few characters who can get benefits of the full four-piece set bonus of Pale Flame artifact. Therefore, just like Childe is the only character who can use the four-piece Hydro set’s benefits to the full extent. It won’t be a surprise if Eula was the center of attention while creating the Pale Flame artifact.
