Top five new features coming to the 2.0 update for Genshin Impact

Inazuma

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.

New enemies to fight in Genshin Impact

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.

New Characters

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 and changes in Weapon banner

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.
