Other important resources you should save are Crystal Ores and Fragile Resin. While the former will help in crafting the upcoming blacksmith weapons, the latter will be essential for farming the new Emblem of Severed Fate and Shimenawa’s Reminiscence artifact sets.

How to explore Inazuma

When Dragonspine arrived, it was self-evident that Pyro characters will play an important role in keeping us alive from the cold. A similar element mechanic might be a part of Inazuma too.

Hence, you should build an Electro character before the upcoming update. It is worth noting that the Travelers will also get Electro powers with Inazuma, so now might be a good time to upgrade them to lv. 70 or 80.

Gacha Gamer talked about Inazuma and its exploration strategies in a recent video.

Is re-rolling artifacts worth it?

One of the most revolutionary changes that will be a part of the 2.0 update is artifact re-rolling. By sacrificing three 5-star artifacts, Travelers can get an ‘Artifact Strongbox’ which contains a random Artifact.

At first glance, this might seem like an irresistible offer. However, one must keep in mind that three 5-star Artifacts comprise almost 10,000 XP points that can help in upgrading the existing artifacts in the inventory. Therefore, only re-roll for artifacts if you can afford to lose the XP points.

All in all, the 2.0 patch seems like the best update we’ve witnessed in Genshin Impact so far. The game finally feels fresh owing to which newbies, veterans, whales, and free to play players will be able to enjoy it collectively, yet again.
