Genshin Impact’s First Big Update, Version 1.1, is Live

It’s a great day to be a fan of Genshin Impact. The open-world action-RPG game that took the world by storm has finally received its first huge update. The version 1.1 update features plenty of new quests and fresh weapons alongside four brand new characters. Also, moHiYo, the developer, is giving sixty Primogems to the players for each hour that servers are down as a present.

“Kätzlein Cocktail” Diona (Cryo) – 4 Star

The first character added is the young lady Diona. Using a bow to freeze her enemies, the Cat’s Tail bartender is a real threat for anyone who stands in her way with her Cryo-imbued arrows. Diona accesses a huge AoE ability thanks to her Elemental Burst which gives Cryo damage to enemies in an area while regenerating HP for characters in the area as well. Also, she’s got cute cat ears.

“Blazing Riff” Xinyan – 4 Star

With an additional star in the arena, the star factor has increased in Genshin Impact. Xinyan can’t handle a world without music, carrying a guitar by her side and rocking her rivals’ worlds with the Elemental Skill which deals physical damage to them and causes explosions that deal Pyro damage.

Childe” Tartaglia (Hydro) – 5 Star

Number eleven of The Harbingers makes your journey easier by allowing you to exploit his unique fight-style. A master of Hydro skills, Childe provides both ranged and melee combat with the watery blades he summons as well as his bow. Childe can unleash his Elemental Burst, dealing massive Hydro damage with either a magic arrow or slashing swords.

“Vago Mundo” Zhongli (Geo) – 5 Star

The last character to join Genshin Impact’s roster is the consultant of Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, Zhongli. Full of wisdom, Zhongli’s ability to command earth and rock allows him to brandish stone polearms while summoning massive Geo constructs that plunge into the earth and deal Geo damage. The Elemental Burst of the consultant brings a falling star down to earth that deals massive Geo damage to opponents and petrifies them.


In addition to the brand new characters, Genshin Impact now has 4 different fresh weapons as well: Memory of Dust, a five star catalyst; Vortex Vanquisher, a five star Polearm; The Unforged, a five star Claymore; and Royal Spear, a four star Polearm. All weapons except Memory of Dust will arrive in the next banner.


Players have been complaining about the lack of quests for a long time. It seems like moHiYo heard that and brought a couple of additional quests into the game. The new Archon Quest grants you Primogems, Weapon Enhancement Materials, Character EXP Materials, and other rewards. Besides, the new update submits new story quests alongside new world quests.

City Reputation System

You can now obtain more rewards by increasing your reputation levels in cities. As you increase your reputation level, you will unlock special city features, recipes, gadget blueprints, namecards, wind gliders, and other rewards.
