What is Genshin Impact?
Genshin Impact is an open-world role-playing game [RPG] with an action-based combat system. Players can experience an immersive single-player campaign. You can play this game as a traveler from another world and embark on a journey to reunite with your long-lost sibling and explore the mysteries of the magical world of Teyvat.
The game can be played in solo mode or you can invite your friends to join in your world and explore it together with a 4-player cross-play for PS4, iOS, Android, and PC. You can decide who will fight by your side by building a party from over 40+ characters- each with their unique combat styles.
Genshin Impact utilizes Gacha mechanics, which induces players to spend in-game currency to receive a random in-game item. Players can earn in-game currency by completing missions, quests, or other tasks and purchase it in the game using real-world money.
There are a lot of terms and details in Genshin Impact, which can confuse the new players. Here are some essential terms to introduce the new players to the magical world of Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact’s vast map is still increasing with every new update. Often traveling from one location to another on foot can be very troublesome. At this point, the teleportation waypoint makes our life easier. Teleport waypoints are structures scattered across Tevyat that can assist players in traveling considerable distances.
When a player unlocks a new teleport waypoint, the game rewards them with Adventure EXP ×50 and Primogem Primogem ×5. To use Teleport waypoint, open the map and select the teleport point where you want to teleport.
Statue of the Seven
“Statue of the Seven” are the statues of the seven gods of Teyvat, scattered all over its map. Each region has a statue of its corresponding archon. They play a significant role in the character development and progress of the in-game story. They provide players many benefits such as healing all party members, serving as teleportation waypoints, resonating with elements, unlocking nearby locked regions of the map, and many more.
