Genshin Impact 4.0 Update Developers Discussion talks about one-click expedition, smart-add for enhancements, and more

A number of highly requested features are now available!

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play RPG developed and published by the Chinese video game company HoYoverse. Developers’ Discussions are all about answering community problems and sharing ideas between the players and developers for the betterment of the game. Let’s take a look at all the questions answered during the Developers’ Discussion after Genshin Impact Version 4.0 update.

Genshin Impact Version 4.0 update: Developers Discussion Highlights 

Adventure Encounters

Starting from Version 4.1, after Travelers complete a quest, participate in an event, carry out exploration, and collect materials, Travelers will earn Encounter Points. These points can be exchanged for the same rewards as from Daily Commissions.

Once Travelers reach Adventure Rank 35 or complete Archon Quest Chapter II: Act III, Encounter Points can be exchanged for rewards.

The claim attempts and reward cap for Encounter Points and Daily Commissions are shared and daily claiming attempts can be mixed and matched (e.g. you can claim one Encounter Points reward, complete three Daily Commissions, and claim those rewards).

The goal of Encounter Points is to make it easier for players to obtain their daily Primogems without having to complete tedious daily commissions.

Adventure Rank Ascension reminder

This is a problem that has plagued many new players, they struggle to understand that they are supposed to complete the Adventure Rank ascension quest when they reach Adventure Rank 25. As a result, they stay at Adventure Rank 25 for an extended period, which causes confusion.

In future versions of Genshin Impact, a prompt will show up in the Paimon menu stating that the Adventure Rank needs to be ascended.

Adventure Rank Ascension stage challenge adjustments

The developers have decided to simplify the Adventure Rank Ascension challenge domain. It will feature fewer combat challenges and fewer boss/elite opponents.

Adjusted rewards and conditions for unlocking “Embattle”

Embattle is a short list of easy challenges to complete. It offers rewards for new players to help them build their characters. The requirement for unlocking Embattle has been lowered from Adventure Rank 20 to 16, so players can now start receiving these rewards much earlier. Weapon Enhancement materials have also been added to the rewards.

One-click expeditions and more

Expedition is a feature that has been present since the beginning, but it has not received much polish since then. In the beginning, characters who were sent on expeditions were not available to be used in the team, this has been changed. But even then, it is very tedious to open the expeditions menu, claim the rewards, and send another expedition. The developers are considering making this process simpler by implementing the claim and resend button.

The developers are trying to make it easier to track and locate enemies in the open world. Additionally, after tracking an enemy from the menu once, the choice will be remembered in the future. Players can also tap a world boss’s icon to see how long it will take for it to respawn.

Smart add feature and more

The number of items that are allowed to be selected for artifacts/weapons upgrades is very unintuitive. In future versions of Genshin Impact, the number of items to add will be increased, and a smart add feature will be implemented which will add the items required to rapidly upgrade artifacts to level 4/8/12/16.

The level-up materials for characters will be auto-added. Moreover, the level-up and Ascend pages will be merged. This means if you are upgrading a character beyond their level cap for the current Ascension level, the character will be automatically Ascended (provided you have the required Ascension materials in your inventory). This would heavily simplify the character upgrade process.

Final Thoughts

That was all for Genshin Impact version 4.0 Developers Discussions. This time, the developers are focused on reducing the number of clicks required to complete important tasks. The Adventure Rank Ascension reminder is a godsend for new players, while the streamlining of the artifacts/weapons/character upgrades is something that will benefit all players.

Do not forget that players have the option to share their suggestions and concerns with the game developers by submitting them through the feedback section in the in-game menu which allows developers to review and potentially implement their ideas for the betterment of the game. This is important if we want more Quality of Life features to be added to the game.
