Genshin Impact 2.5 Update Brings New Character Yae Miko And Domain Editor! Learn More Here

The next big update of Genshin Impact will arrive later this month. The miHoYo RPG latest version 2.5 for February 2022 slightly deviates from the usual pattern. This time we will have only one new character entering the smash-hit game. 5-star Electro-user Yae Miko is coming to join other heroes.

Furthermore, there is no new region to travel and explore in a break from previous updates. However, Genshin Impact ver 2.5 brings about a new era of user-generated content. Players can now access a full Domain editor to create and share their customized dungeons.

In addition, the usual array of challenges and new events are part of the release as well.

Check the trailer for Genshin Impact 2.5 launch trailer below.

Here is a brief overview of the new 5-star hero, Yae Miko:

Yae Miko, the head shrine maiden of the Grand Narukami Shrine, will be joining as the new five-star Electro Catalyst user. With her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst, Miko is capable of providing both constant damage off-field and high burst damage on-field. Meanwhile, players may also cross paths with Yae Miko as an unusual urban legend circulates throughout Inazuma. Yae Miko’s Event Wish will be available in the early stage of the update, followed by Event Wishes of Raiden Shogun and Sangonomiya Kokomi.

Moreover, here’s a summary of the “Divine Ingenuity” event that will enable players to set up their Domain, plus the season’s extensive “Three Realms Gateway Offering” event:

  • “Divine Ingenuity” will offer a chance for players to create their own domain. Participants of this event will be able to customize their own domains with a variety of terrain, mechanisms, traps, buffs and completion criteria. Moreover, players may also try out other players’ domain designs.
  • “Three Realms Gateway Offering” will challenge explorers with an area based on Enkanomiya that is haunted by unknown darkness. Once they have set foot in this area, characters will continuously accumulate corrosive darkness. A special gadget, the Bokuso Box, will be given to help resist the corrosive darkness, gain new abilities, and take down certain monsters. Open chests, unlock Waypoints and complete exploration objectives in the event area will all level up the Bokuso Box. The event will last the entire duration of Version 2.5, providing players with an ample amount of time to fully explore every corner and claim rich rewards including Primogems and the new 4-star catalyst weapon, Oathsworn Eye.

Genshin Impact is available on PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile platforms. Expect version 2.5 to land on 16 February.
