While Genshin Impact fans recently received a new Pyro character, fans have already uncovered hints about what’s to come. A user has already discovered a new technique that could be useful for Zhongli, one of the future characters in the game.
In addition to combat and quest completion, Genshin Impact is often a foraging game and a mining game. It appears that the incoming Geo-user Zhongli has gained access to a feature that makes mining considerably more convenient.
Striking deposits of metal to earn chunks in Genshin Impact
According to Game Rant, players in Genshin Impact must strike metal deposits to gain chunks, just like in Breath of the Wild. Forging ores can be mined from crystal and metal chunks that can be found on mountainsides and around caves in Teyvat. Crystal chunks, white iron chunks, and iron chunks are all common minerals that can be mined.
In Genshin Impact, any powerful weapon can hit mineral deposits, but a claymore can shatter them. So when mining, players usually switch to claymore users.
The player must approach and aim at each specific mineral deposit to swing a claymore. It’s faster than using a standard sword or polearm, but it still requires carrying a huge sword and picking up bits one by one.
As per the report, Zhongli appears to be using his Geo talents to assist miners. While Geo’s claymores deal more damage, Zhongli depends on his natural abilities. In a video shared to Reddit by user genshincake, the Liyue native uses his Elemental Skill to shatter all neighboring mineral resources.
This method is faster and more efficient than spinning a claymore in circles, plus it allows for more intriguing Elemental reactions in Genshin Impact. While many characters have a Vision, few share specific powers.
Genshin Impact’s miHoYo gets international rebrand
MiHoYo was founded in 2012 but has just recently gained international recognition through their games Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact 3rd. However, as it develops its cross-media universe, the game company is undergoing an international rebranding campaign.
As reported by Kotaku, in China, where the business’s core game development will continue to take place, the company will continue to be known as miHoYo. However, on the world stage, the new term will be applied to peripheral projects such as artificial intelligence research and cross-media concepts.
