Genshin Impact 1.5 update: New features, characters and more
Genshin Impact housing system details
One of the biggest features that the 1.5 update of the Genshin Impact will bring is a ‘housing system.’ So, players will be able to build new houses and decorate them with various items. You will get different house and realm styles, each with plenty of space for outdoor recreation and indoor luxury. The interesting part is how this will work.
The main character will get a gadget called Serenitea Pot, using which one will be able to enter a completely new world to create houses. However, don’t assume that you will get that item without putting in extra efforts. It can be created by Liyue’s Adepti and players will have to play some quest to get it. Players can invite some of the friends to their new house to win some rewards.

Once you get the Serenitea Pot, you will get three different realm layouts. Inside the realm, players will see Tubby and you need to increase his trust rank to get 60 Primogems. You can win his trust by creating new furnishing for your home. Players will also get ‘Realm Currency’ for building a home. You can use those currencies to get a variety of materials and rewards.
New characters, weapons in Genshin Impact 1.5 update
The update will introduce two new playable characters, namely Eula and Yanfei. There is also a new banner of Zhongli, which is a 5-star Geo character.
Eula is a five-star character and is the Spindrift Knight and Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company. Wielding a claymore and the power of Cryo, she can deal AoE damage and increase her resistance to interruption with her elemental skill and elemental burst. Meanwhile, Yanfei is a four-star Pyro-using catalyst wielder. She will appear in Zhongli’s event wish – Gentry of Hermitage.’
Apart from these, a new 5-star weapon (Claymore) and 2 sets of Artifacts will also be released in the upcoming update. You will get the new 5-star Artifacts via a new domain, called Ridge Watch.
New challenges/enemies in Genshin Impact 1.5 update
3 new bosses – Azhdaha, Cryo Hypostasis and Abyss Lector.
In the latest Genshin Impact 1.5 update, you will find two new formidable enemies that will be waiting for adventurers to fight and loot. There will be a new Trounce Domain opponent, Azhdaha, the “Lord of Vishaps.” Interestingly, this monster can change its elements. So if you manage to defeat the new weekly boss, then you will get some rare rewards once a week.
In addition to Dragonspine, the Cryo Hypostasis will also make an appearance as a new Boss Enemy. The company says “just like other enemies in the Hypostasis series, the Cryo Hypostasis has a unique pattern of attack and provides precious resources when defeated, including Character Level-Up Materials.”
There is one more enemy in Abyss, called Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning. The developers noted that some of the Abyss Lector attacks will decrease your characters’ elemental energy once they hit their opponents.
The update will also bring a number of other gameplay improvements, including halving the cost of claiming the first three Trounce Domain rewards per week and doubling the amount of Companionship EXP earned in Co-Op mode.
