Genshin Impact 4.6 Update Developers’ Discussion talks about Treasure Compass optimizations, one-click crafting in the Serenitea Pot 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 4.6 update.

Genshin Impact Version 4.6 update: Developers Discussion Highlights 

Treasure Compass

Anyone who has tried to 100% their exploration progress by using the treasure compass knows how annoying it is to follow the directions given by the compass. The treasure compass is supposed to make exploration easier, not unnecessarily time-consuming. To fix this issue, treasure compasses will now mark the location of nearby chests on the map.

Friend Nicknames

Most players give a nickname to their friends to make them easier to find. However, this nickname does not show up where it needs to, making it slightly pointless. Now, co-op requests will show the nicknames, which will help remove confusion.

New Avatars

So far, the only avatars available were the faces of obtained characters. From now on, completing certain quests will unlock an avatar. If the quest is already completed when version 4.6 goes live, the related avatar will be already unlocked.

Map Interface

The map interface is getting an upgrade. At the beginning, only the “show domain” toggle was available. After the TCG was released, the “search for players” toggle was added. Both of these toggles are now being transferred to a map settings menu where you can also toggle the custom markers. This is one of the things with the Developers Discussion in the Version 4.6 Update in Genshin Impact.

As more regions are added to the game, it is becoming increasingly annoying to have to scroll through the list on the map. The region selection menu will be more streamlined to make it easier to select the desired region.

Serenitea Pot crafting

Crafting furniture sets in the Serenitea Pot can get annoying since you have to manually keep track of all the pieces that are in the set. Now, it can be done with a single button.

Certain quests, most notably the Aranara questline from Sumeru have related quest items that need to be viewed. Some quests also require looking at maps or drawings that are in the inventory. From now on the related quest item will be shown in the quest menu itself.

Reputation quests are accepted from the NPC and then they show up in the quest menu. If many quests are active at the same time, it becomes difficult to find the reputation quests. Now, a red marker will be added to easily distinguish them.

Every player has faced this issue: when you’re trying to navigate a quest and it says a character/location involved in that quest is busy with another quest. A recent update made it so the name of the quest is shown to the players, but now a new button has been added which will free up the character/location from other quests.

Final Thoughts

That was all for Genshin Impact version 4.6 Developers Discussion. This time, the developers are focused on streamlining the user interface. The Focused Experience mode is a godsend for anyone who unlocks multiple quests at once, while the Treasure Compass upgrade is something that completionists have been begging for since the beginning.

Do not forget that players can 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. Read more of our Genshin Impact content!
