genshin update notes

The Genshin Impact 2.2 update (“Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog”) is here, and so too are the patch notes, direct from miHoYo. We’ve listed the update highlights below. For a full list of what’s new and what’s changed, check out the full Genshin Impact 2.2 patch notes on the miHoYo website, where you’ll also find out about Primogen compensation and eligibility.

New Inazuma Island: Tsurumi Island    

  • An island that has been locked off by perpetual fog, where few people dare enter.    
  • After the Version 2.2 update, Tsurumi Island in the Inazuma region will be available.    
  • Unlock Criteria: Complete the World Quest “Seirai Stormchasers”    

New Character: 4-Star Thoma (Pyro)    

  • Vision: Pyro    
  • Weapon: Polearm    
  • The Kamisato Clan’s housekeeper. A well-known “fixer” in Inazuma.    
  • Thoma’s Elemental Skill “Blazing Blessing” can deal AoE Pyro Damage, apply Pyro to himself, and summons a defensive Blazing Barrier. When a new Blazing Barrier is obtained, the remaining DMG Absorption of an existing Blazing Barrier will stack and its duration will be refreshed. The maximum DMG Absorption of the Blazing Barrier will not exceed a certain percentage of Thoma’s Max HP.    
  • When Thoma uses his Elemental Burst “Crimson Ooyoroi,” he deals AoE Pyro DMG and creates a Scorching Ooyoroi. Characters under the effects of the Scorching Ooyoroi will trigger Fiery Collapses with their Normal Attacks, dealing AoE Pyro DMG and summoning another Blazing Barrier. Except for the amount of DMG they can absorb, the Blazing Barriers created in this way are identical to those created by Thoma’s Elemental Skill.    
  • The 4-star character “Protector From Afar” Thoma (Pyro) will be available in a future event wish.

New Domain: Moshiri Kara    

  • A mansion that was set up somewhere outside the Sea of Fog. No one knows who built this place, but it seems clear that it is now nothing but a den of ravenous wolves.    
  • Unlock Criteria: Reach Adventure Rank 40 or above and fulfill certain criteria.    
  • Challenge the Domain to obtain rewards such as Primogems and Electro Sigils.    
  • Located at Tsurumi Island.    

New Weapons    

Polar Star (5-Star Bow)    

  • A pristine bow that is as sharp as the glaciers of the far north.    
  • Increases Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG. After a Normal Attack, Charged Attack, Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst hits an opponent, 1 stack of Ashen Nightstar will be gained for several seconds. When 1/2/3/4 stacks of Ashen Nightstar are present, Attack DMG will gradually increase. The stack of Ashen Nightstar created by the Normal Attack, Charged Attack, Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst will be counted independently of the others.    

Akuoumaru (4-Star Claymore)    

  • The beloved sword of the legendary “Akuou.” The blade is huge and majestic, but is surprisingly easy to wield.    
  • The entire party’s combined maximum Energy increases the Elemental Burst DMG of the character equipping this weapon. A certain percentage of increased Elemental Burst DMG can be achieved this way.    
  • During the event wish, Epitome Invocation, the event-exclusive 5-star weapon Polar Star (Bow) and the event-exclusive 4-star weapon Akuoumaru (Claymore) will receive a huge drop-rate boost!    

Wavebreaker’s Fin (4-Star Polearm)    

  • A naginata forged from luminescent material deep in the ocean depths. It was once the possession of the tengu race.    
  • The entire party’s combined maximum Energy increases the Elemental Burst DMG of the character equipping this weapon. A certain percentage of increased Elemental Burst DMG can be achieved this way.    
  • Mouun’s Moon (4-Star Bow)    
  • A lovely warbow made from seashells and coral. A mournful brilliance flows along its moonlight-colored arms.    
  • The entire party’s combined maximum Energy increases the Elemental Burst DMG of the character equipping this weapon. A certain percentage of increased Elemental Burst DMG can be achieved this way.    
  • The event-exclusive 4-star weapons Wavebreaker’s Fin (Polearm) and Mouun’s Moon (Bow) will be available in a future event wish.
