New Region in Liyue

Situated between Fontaine and Liyue is the new region Chenyu Vale, previously mentioned in Liyue’s lore. This area will be tied to the Lantern Rite festival and contains locales like the Jademouth, Chenlong Pool, Qiaoying Village, and Yilong Wharf for players to discover and explore.

QoL Features

Hoyoverse highlighted in their Dev Discussion blog that they’lll bring a few accessibility changes to the game to make menu navigation a little easier. Starting with the Fast Artifact functionality, this feature will allow players to quickly swap out artifacts on the fly by making a loadout for that specific artifact. Buildcrafting has never been easier now that player can soon run different artifact setups without painstakingly going to the character screen and selecting one artifact for the other. Moreover, the cap for party compositions has been to 15, giving players more opportunity tto experiment with different character setups and builds.

The Serenitea Pot will also receive some optimization, which adds furniture categories and filters for easy organization. Edits to the Serenitea Pot options will no longer reset after entering the menu.

The Adventure Handbook will receive a new tab for Commissions, which serves to help remind players of any unfinished dailies without having to visit the Adventurer’s Guild in person. It will also show notifications of unclaimed rewards, making daily tasks easier to manage.

Lingering Moments will now show characters with unlocked Hangout Moments first on the menu, which makes for easier navigation.

Finally, the game will receive some small visual updates with the addition of a Borderless mode for larger screens and dual monitor setups and the Dynamic Character Resolution to make character models stand out more.
