Genshin Impact just released their highly anticipated “When the Sakura Bloom” version 2.5 update with a ton of exciting new features.
This update, released on Feb. 16, brings players a lot of new content including five-star character Yae Miko, a few quests, two new weapons, unique events, and more. Raiden Shogun is also reappearing as a new weekly boss.
Yae Miko arrives
Five-star Electro Catalyst character Yae Miko is now playable in Genshin Impact. She was first introduced as a character in the Inazuma update and players have been eager to add her to their teams since. Yae Miko’s drop rate has been boosted in the “Everbloom Violet” wish.
Yae Miko is the first five-star Electro Catalyst to be introduced to the game, so be sure to wish on her before her banner is gone.
Two new weapons have been added in this update. The first, Kagura’s Verity, is a five-star Catalyst that currently has a drop rate boost in the “Epitome Invocation” wish. The second, Oathsworn Eye, is a four-star Catalyst that will be attainable through gameplay in the upcoming “Three Realms Gateway Offering” event.
The “Three Realms Gateway Offering” event starts on Feb. 17, and will be available for players to participate in until Version 2.5 ends. The event takes place in Enkanomiya and centers around players exploring the world and using a new item called a Bokuso Box. This event will be available to all players Adventure Rank 30 and above. Players also need to have completed the Archon Quest: “Chapter II: Act II – Stillness, the Sublimation of Shadow” and the World Quest “Erebos’ Secret.”
A few other events are set to come later on in this update but currently have no official release date or in-depth information
