Genshin Impact Version 4.5 to Launch Mid-March with New Wish Banner, Character Training Options and Potion Shop Running

New adventures await the Traveller, Paimon and their many, many friends, with HoYoverse locking in a 13 March 2024 release date for Genshin Impact Version 4.5: Blades Weaving Betwixt Brocade. Following the New Year celebration in Liyue, players will be invited back to where their journey began – Mondstadt – to help Jean, Lisa, and the Knights of Favonius develop the local alchemical potion business. This is on top of a familiar event character making their playable debut, new optimisations and more.

In the latest major seasonal event “Alchemical Ascension,” Travelers can answer the call of the Knights of Favonius and assist Lisa in managing an alchemical potion shop to promote the local business. Players must handle every step of the production process, including cultivating ingredients, concocting potions, and selling them to customers. As revenue increases, players can expand the scale of the business by purchasing more operational facilities and exquisite potion bottles to increase the business areas and number of potions that can be sold. Players can also meet familiar faces and strike a deal with them. In return, players can exchange for various rewards, including the exclusive 4-star polearm “Dialogues of the Desert Sages”.

Additionally, players who want to take a break from adventuring can also play with the cats in “Feline Fortress Furrdyssey” and engage in cannon-firing gameplay in the “Rolling Crossfire” event.

Following her debut in Version 4.3, Chiori, the Inazuma fashion designer of owner of Fontaine’s Chioriya Boutique will join the fray as a 5-star Geo Sword wielder – with the promise of more opportunities to learn about her as well. In combat, Chiori can summon her automaton doll and design assistant, “Tamoto,” to deal DMG based on her Defense and Attack. If a Geo Construct is nearby, Chiori will summon one additional “Tamoto.” When casting her Elemental Burst, she will draw her twin blades and execute a clean cut, dealing AoE Geo DMG. During exploration, Chiori can increase party members’ Movement Speed by 10% if one of the party members is wearing a non-default outfit or wind glider. She will also reveal more of the challenges and opportunities she faces in her work during Fontaine Fashion Week in her latest Story Quest.

In the Version 4.5 Event Wishes, Chiori and Arataki Itto will be featured in the first half followed by Neuvillette and Kaedehara Kazuha in the second half. Both Neuvillette and Kadehara Kazuha are top-tier characters in my books, and are definitely worth checking out if you have missed grabbing them previously. However, HoYoverse is also flipping the script on how they do event banners and offering an alternate option. A brand-new “Chronicled Wish” will also be available for the first time in Version 4.5, bringing with it 5 star characters Albedo, Eula, Mona, Klee, Diluc, and Jean, as well as more than 10 5-star weapons such as Wolf’s Gravestone and Hunter’s Path in the same Wish. Players can chart a course towards their desired 5-star character or weapon, and their second 5-star item obtained will be their desired item (if they did not get it during the first time).

The user experience, particularly for newer players, is also receiving a revamp. . In the Paimon Menu, the “Training Guide” provides useful tips and suggestions for enhancing the characters in the player’s party based on their level, weapons, artifacts, and talents. For instance, if the player checks the recommendations for a particular character’s weapons, the Training Guide will show how to ascend the equipped weapon, where to obtain ascension materials, and what weapons are commonly equipped for said character according to other players. In addition, the character’s Talents interface will now display upgrade materials, so Travelers can know at a glance which materials they need.

Genshin Impact is an open-world adventure game developed by HoYoverse and is now available on the PC, iOS, Android, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. It is a free-to-play game, but is powered by a ‘gacha’ system which makes use of real money transactions.
