The long wait for the next region of Genshin Impact is finally coming to an end. After almost one year without a true new region (Dragonspine was just a Mondstatd extra part, and the Archipelago will soon leave), we will see the release of Inazuma. The Electro-themed region will bring many new enemies, new areas to explore, more treasure chests to encounter and many other new features.
Getting ready for the release of Inazuma
Since a lot of things will be added to the game, you should be prepared to do a lot of new content, such as the new domains if you’re going for the new artifact sets or the Inazuma talent books, if you’re rolling for one of the new characters.
For that, you’ll probably want all of the older content already done. So here’s 5 tips to help you into doing just that, so you’ll be able to freely enjoy Inazuma at its release.
1 – Gather universal resources
Save all Mora, Hero’s Wit, Enhancement Ores and Ascension Materials you can. You’re going to need them for all of those new characters. Leveling a character from 1 to 90 can easily cost over 1 million Mora and over 300 purple Exp books.
Also, if you’re pulling for a weapon, those are also really expensive. Since there’s no real way to get Mystical Ores without limits (if you don’t want to use your resin), these can become very rare. Go find some crystals to strengthen your new tools. Also, kill some monsters and get their materials, you never know when you’ll need them. Your goal is to get as many resources as possible. So any methods that don’t involve resin are desired.
One of the biggest tips I can give is to not forget your Parametric Transformer. This little baby can give you so many free resources (even if they are technically random), and by delaying it, you are losing the chance to get some freebies.
2 – Decorate your Teapot
Maybe housing isn’t for everybody, but in Genshin, this system is so helpful that it’s almost mandatory. The Teapot has many prizes associated with it, including primogems and many achievements (that give even more primogems). Also, since the 1.6 version, you can also level your friendship with characters by using it.
The biggest prize for it, however, is the Realm Depot. After obtaining the maximum Trust rank, you’ll get a good amount of daily Realm Currency, which can be used to purchase Resin, Mora, Exp Books, Ores and even Artifact Exp (but these are not very efficient, so avoid spending Currency on them).
You don’t need to decorate it perfectly to achieve higher ranks. There are many strategies, like using the same decoration over and over again on your island. A popular item for this is the Stone Lion Statues, since they are easy to build. For inside decoration, you can use Pine Folding Screens, which give the same amount of points and aren’t very difficult to make either.
3 – Delay your reputation quests
A common thing to do when a new patch is to come. If you’re used to doing your Bounties and Requests right on Monday, delay them until the new patch comes. This way, you’ll not only get them on your new Battle Pass, but you’ll be able to complete them in Inazuma on its release, giving you reputation for the new region.
According to the Honey Impact database, the new rewards will include a new Glider, a new Character namecard, the Electroculos Resonance Stone and the Electro Treasure Compass.
Notice that this should only be done if you already have completed your reputation on both Liyue and Mondstadt. If you haven’t, is advised to keep focusing on them, since they are easier to complete, and gadgets like the NRE are lifesavers.
4 – Plan your resin usage
Following the same thinking pattern from the last item, you may want to save some resin for using in the new bosses and domains. You can condensate all your resin one day before the update and spend more than 300 in the new region when it drops. Also consider saving some resin refills if you want your Ayaka to be 10/10/10 on the very first day.
You may feel tempted to also do the weekly bosses earlier, and that would be a good call if you can’t wait to fight the new things. But remember that, if they’re beaten before the patch, they won’t count towards the Battle Pass. If you don’t mind fighting them again, you can always choose a victim and fight it over and over again until the quest is done.

5 – Save your extra artifacts
Having some extras is never a bad thing, but now it will be even better. A new system was announced during the Special Program live, the Mystical Offering. This will allow Travelers to spend 3 non-desired 5-star artifacts in order to get a new one. This new artifact will belong to 4 unannounced sets. According to leaks, these sets are Noblesse Obliged, Bloodstained Knight, Gladiator and Wanderer’s Troupe.
This will be a way for “farming” the Gladiator set, which is something many people have been asking since the game’s release, since the + 18% Atk effect is generally great in most characters. But also, we’re getting a new set that also has the same 2-piece effect, so maybe this is coming a little bit late.
Genshin Impact 2.0 will be its biggest update yet, with 3 new characters and a whole new region to explore. The release of Inazuma will surely bring many returning players, and hopefully also create new ones.
The game is free to play, and can be played on mobile devices, Pc on both miHoYo and Epic Games Store launchers, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5. A Nintendo Switch port is currently in development.
