Genshin Impact New Territory

As you may or may not know by now, Genshin Impact Update 2.4 is called “Fleeting Colors in Flight.” The new area within Inazuma is called Enkanomiya. Unlike the other islands that have gradually appeared, Enkanomiya is a floating island underneath the ocean. Since it is underwater, there is no true day and night cycle, but there will be interesting puzzles to figure out with artificial sun called Dainichi Mikoshi.

Genshin Impact New Characters

One of the most exciting parts of Genshim Impact Update 2.4 is not only the addition of two new characters but, for the first time ever, 4 different banners. The two new characters are five-star Shenhe, a Cryo Polearm user, and 4-star Yun Jin, a Geo Polearm user. Genshin Impact really loves its Polearm users.

The first two banners that will run as soon as the new update comes are The Transcendent One Returns which features Shenhe and Invitation to Mundane Life which features a re-run of Xiao. Both of these banners will include Yun Jin, Ningguang, and Chongyun.

The second phase, starting on January 26 will introduce two new banners called Adrift in the Harbor which will feature Ganyu, and Gentry of Hermitage which will feature Zhong-Li. You’ll definitely want to save up on Primogems this month for these legendary characters.
