Huge game-changing update coming to Genshin Impact

miHoYo’s life simulator game also happens to be an open-world game where elements play a huge role. There are seven elements in the game, namely: Pyro, Hydro, Geo, Electro, Anemo, Cryo, and Dendro. Players can combine two characters’ elemental attacks belonging to distinct elements to produce elemental reactions.

Since the game’s release, Pyro element has been most players’ favorable choice, as it can produce Melt and Vaporize elemental reactions. Both these reactions give high damage to opponents where Melt deals the most amount of it. However, it seems like all these opinions will change after the 1.5 update. Moreover, it looks like the Electro element will be another candidate to compete against Pyro.

miHoYo’s statement on buffing other elements

miHoYo said in its recent blog that the developers are planning to make the following changes to the game.

  • When a character reaches Level 60 or above, the damage caused by major reactions (i.e. Electro-Charged, Superconduct, Overloaded, Swirl, and Shatter) will be increased.
  •  The Base Shield DMG Absorption for shields generated by Crystalize reactions will be increased.
  •  The DMG Bonus provided by Elemental Mastery for major reactions will be increased. (Refer to the attributes panel in-game for the exact DMG Bonus amount).

The new region is right around the corner and is an Electro region with an Archon that belongs to the Electro element. Several players had already anticipated that miHoYo will buff the Electro element, eventually. It was necessary to buff the Electro element in order to release the full potential of the respective characters. This element usually falls behind other elements later in the game. We will definitely see more team compositions from characters belonging to Electro element after receiving this huge buff.
