Genshin Impact - Version 2.7

Genshin Impact’s latest major update, Version 2.7 “Hidden Dreams in the Depths,” is now available for PS4, iOS, Android and PC. It adds two new characters – Yelan, a 5-star Hydro user, and Kuki Shinobu, a 4-star Electro user. New equipment like the bows Aqua Simulcra, which increases HP and damage dealt based on enemies nearby, and Fading Twilight which can have one of three buffs.

Fading Twilight can be earned from completing “Realms of the Guile and War” in The Chasm. Other rewards include Primogems, Crown of Insight, Weapon Ascension Materials, Hero’s Wit and much more. You’ll need to be Adventure Rank 28 to partake though along with completing the Archon Quest “A New Star Approaches” and World Quest “Wherefore Did the Spiritstone Descend?” (with various story quests for Arataki Itto and Raiden Shogun also “enhancing” the experience).

The new Archon Quest Interlude Chapter “Perilous Trail” is also available as a permanent addition to the game. Yelan also has her own Story Quest while Kuki Shinobu has a Hangout Event. Check out the conditions to experience those below. Full patch notes can be viewed here.

Update Details

I. New Characters

5-Star Character “Valley Orchid” Yelan (Hydro)
Vision: Hydro
Weapon: Bow

  • Yelan’s Elemental Skill “Lingering Lifeline” fires off a Lifeline that pulls her in rapidly, entangling and marking opponents along its path. When her rapid movement ends, the Lifeline will explode, dealing Hydro DMG to the marked opponents based on Yelan’s Max HP. Additionally, each opponent marked by the Lifeline when it explodes grants Yelan a chance to obtain Breakthrough. This will cause her next Charged Aimed Shot to have a decreased charge time, and once charged, she can fire a “Breakthrough Barb” that will deal AoE Hydro DMG based on Yelan’s Max HP.
  • Her Elemental Burst “Depth-Clarion Dice” deals AoE Hydro DMG once and creates an “Exquisite Throw,” which aids her in battle. This follows the character around and will initiate a coordinated attack under the following circumstances, dealing Hydro DMG based on Yelan’s Max HP. This can occur once every second when your active character uses a Normal Attack and will occur each time Yelan’s Lifeline explodes and hits opponents.

4-Star Character “Mender of Tribulations” Kuki Shinobu (Electro)
Vision: Electro
Weapon: Sword

  • Kuki Shinobu’s Elemental Skill “Sanctifying Ring” creates a Grass Ring of Sanctification at the cost of part of her HP, dealing Electro DMG to nearby opponents. Grass Ring of Sanctification follows the current active character around. It deals Electro DMG to nearby opponents periodically and restores HP for the active character(s) within the ring’s AoE based on Kuki Shinobu’s Max HP. The HP consumption from using this skill can only bring her to 20% HP.
  • Her Elemental Burst “Gyoei Narukami Kariyama Rite” stabs an evil-excoriating blade into the ground, creating a field that cleanses the area of all that is foul, dealing continuous Electro DMG to opponents within its AoE based on Shinobu’s Max HP. If Shinobu’s HP is less than or equal to 50% when this skill is used, the field will last longer.

II. New Equipment

Aqua Simulacra (Bow)

  • Increases HP. When there are opponents near the character equipping this weapon, the DMG the character deals is increased. This effect will still be detected when the character is off-field.
    This longbow’s color is unpredictable. Under the light, it takes on a lustrous, watery blue.

Fading Twilight (Bow)

  • This weapon will come with 1 of 3 buffs. Each of the 3 buffs will increase the DMG dealt by the character by different percentages. When the character hits an opponent, the buff will change to the next effect type. This can be triggered once every 7s, and can be triggered even if the character is off-field.
    A precious bow made of platinum, inlaid with an orb that shimmers with the light of eventide.

III. New Events

During the event, go to The Chasm and investigate the mysteries of the depths. Complete various challenges in the event to obtain rewards like Primogems, Crown of Insight, Weapon Ascension Materials, Talent Level-Up Materials, Mystic Enhancement Ore, Hero’s Wit, and Mora. Complete specific “Realms of Guile and War” to obtain the event-exclusive weapon “Fading Twilight” (Bow) and its Refinement Material.
