There will be a new monster type in this Genshin Impact 2.2. It is Rifthound Whelp and the variants of it that resemble spectral wolves or the re animated wolf puppets. All of them fit the theme of Tsurumi Island. The Rifthounds are dangerous as they have an ability to be invisible during the battle. Firstly, they will stalk you and then they will do a huge amount of damage.
For the new regions, the one that will be released is related to something dark, which is perfect for the Halloween theme. The name of the new region is Tsurumi. It is described as a spooky and fog shrouded island. This one is the final island region included in Inazuma nation yet to be added to the game. According to the report, it will serve as the location for the main event of Genshin Impact 2.2 called Labyrinth Warriors. This map will take the players to the Spiral Abyss esque dungeon. Two characters named Xinyan and Tartaglia will be involved. Actually, there is not much thing known about Tsurumi with the exception of the rumor that it will have a new type of treasure chest for furnishing blueprints named the Remarkable Chest and it will be used by the Rifthound Whelp monsters as a home.
There are three banners featured in Genshin Impact 2.2, as follows:
- Farewell of Snezhnaya
- Moment of Bloom
- Epitome Invocation
The new 2.2 update will come with two quests, which are Thoma’s Hangout and Sayu’s Hangout.
There are several events in the Genshin Impact 2.2, such as:
- Labyrinth Warriors
Labyrinth Warriors is the main event in Genshin Impact 2.2. The players will be fighting through a five floor multi roomed dungeon called the Mystic Onmyou Chamber, along with the paper Samurai named Shiki-Taishou. Just like the Spiral Abyss, it will be needed for you to choose two teams, consisting of one primary and one support, and Shikifunda, which will be the floor based buffs just like you would select in the Spiral Abyss. As a player, you will have to beat the random monsters that are found in every room to get your currency that can be used to improve Shiki Taishou. You can also get better Shikifuda or claim rewards from the event shop. In addition, you also have a chance to get a four star Pyro character that wields a claymore named Xinyan as part of the event. She is apparently involved in the story of the labyrinth.
- Shadow of the Ancients
This one is about beating a regenerating version of the boss enemy called Anomalous Ruin Graders. In order to do that, the first thing that you have to do is to find the materials to repair Pursina Spikes by using a prospecting device. Next, charge those spikes with Electro while getting attacked. Besides, it is also needed for you to do that again while you are dealing with the Anomalous Ruin Grader to avoid it from repairing itself. Shadow of the Ancients is like a boss fight while spinning plates. It looks like dealing with the status effects from the La Signora fight.
- Dreams of Bloom
This one is a Flower Gardening Event in the upcoming update. It will be released on October 13, 2021. It is where you plant special seeds in the Serenitea Pot to get rewards.
- Turned to the World’s Sounds
This event is about the Windchase Festival’s Lyre based rhythm game. It gives the players a Floral Zither.
