Interact with a gadget teapot to enter your realm.
You can invite your friends in your teapot.
You can buy the Transient Resin with realm currency.

inazuma teasers with a new character, 3 islands
4 things.
  1. Looks beautiful
  2. Coming soon enough to be teased
  3. Coming soon enough, but will be released in parts which is quite worrisome
  4. MiHo definitely feels the pressure and people's desire for the new region

Feels like another inbetween update. And who's gonna summon for these dusty ass characters when Inazuma is around the corner? Eula especially seems kind of boring. I don't really care about the housing system, but at least it looks like there will be a lot of events.

All in all: Meh.

Selfishly, I'm glad the Zhongli banner is first. I was not looking forward to waiting through the end of this banner plus 3 weeks of Eula.

This way I can quickly deal with the misery from losing the 50/50 pity on his banner and ending up with Qiqi instead :messenger_expressionless:

Just like I thought, with the introduction of the Housing system MiHo will now have an unlimited stream of rewards for the events.

it sounds like they have bunch of bugs and they don't have enough time to fix it.


I hope they do. I like the idea of putting my roster in the place, even if they're just stationary. It would give the place more life than just putting a bunch of animals there.
Plus, it would be a good opportunity to increment some dialogues on them.

Me: Good, it's the expected banners. I don't have any interest in any of the characters, so I can save up.

MiHoYo: I heard you like thighs...


*edit* - More Inazuma previews. More pleasant looking than I was expecting tbh.

It's pretty clear that a lot of R&D in Teyvat went into the textile industry. These nations have mastered sheer nylon body suits, but there's no sign of automobiles, planes, or information technologies.

Maybe Khaenri'ah wouldn't have been wiped out if they had just stuck to developing sexy stockings instead of war machines. :pie_thinking:

As a semi-casual player, I'm pretty happy with the content in the China stream. Didn't expect Inazuma concept art at all and it looks awesome. I have 0 interest in any other region after Inazuma so waiting has been hell for it. Housing looks cool and I see they showed off Yae in chibi form? her Shrine Maiden skin from Honkai?

Goddamn, those two new artifact sets are bonkers for Zhongli/Noelle and then Eula/Kaeya/Razor/Rosaria.

The first day of the new year is upon us, and Guuji Yae is welcoming her first visitor to the shrine — the lady of the Kamisato house. It is said that if one piously pays their respects to the gods, they will have good fortune in the coming year.


Doesn't look like we will see her in this outfit anymore.

Makes sense since she's the head Shrine Maiden. I'm fine with anything, but wonder if she'll still use a Katana.
I have a feeling that Inazuma might be our first patch with new weapon types. I'm expecting to see Katanas, Fist weapons, Guns, and MHY's favorite - Scythes. I'd love to see some lesser used weapon types too, like battle staves (instead of magic catalyst types), whips, and boomerangs/throwable stuff.

I feel Katana's have to be a new weapon type. No matter how I picture it, it doesn't work as your regular sword. Fists, Staves and Guns would be awesome (Nioh is that you?).

That hide 'n seek minigame makes me feel like I've been practicing in Dark Souls PVP for years using the Chameleon spell.

Overall, this update is pretty fucking content bare. What a bummer. Free Diona, a namecard, and the housing stuff are the rewards for 1.5. Housing looks cool but looks very non-interactive for now, so after you collect it and place it, it's likely that you won't spend any significant time in the teapot.
