GENSHIN IMPACT 2.7

Trapped Deep Inside The Chasm

It seems that The Chasm seals away not only clues to Khaenri’ah and the Traveler twins, but also the history and secrets of Liyue, including how the people fought against monsters 500 years ago. For a long time, Yelan has been watching over The Chasm, trying to find out what happened back then, which may be closely related to her origin. In addition, the yakshas also seem to share a deep connection with what happened in the past.

In the new event Perilous Trail, you will start a new Archon Quest Interlude Chapter featuring a diverse cast of characters inside The Chasm. While Yelan, Yanfei, Itto, and Shinobu are stranded in the depths, danger also looms ahead for the Conqueror of Demons, Xiao, who is conducting his own investigation. Survive the crisis together, and follow Xiao’s steps to uncover the history buried inside The Chasm.

As the story progresses, a new combat challenge Realms of Guile and War will be unlocked along with the Perilous Trail event, putting both your combat skills and party-building strategy to the test. In this new game mode, you will be facing several rounds of combat in four different domains, and each domain has its own rule to rearrange your party after every round of combat. For instance, the Direcliff Court Domain allows only one member of your current party to continue in the next round of combat, while in the Kaleidoscope Cage Domain, two current members will be banned randomly in later fights. The challenge can be daunting, so we also prepared multiple Stratagem buffs and Trial Characters for you to choose from. Bountiful rewards, including the new four-star bow Fading Twilight also await in the event shop.

Besides, our old acquaintance Hosseini the Sumeru scholar is asking for help again to settle another crisis in which dark mud-like substance is spewing forth from the depths. In the A Muddy Bizarre Adventure, you need to use your Lumenstone Adjuvant and the Pursina’s Spike placed by the scholar to clear the mud, repel monsters, and complete different challenge objectives such as escorting a hot air balloon to its destination or defeating certain monsters in a limited time.

Meet Yelan and Kuki Shinobu

Following the debut of Yelan and Kuki Shinobu in The Chasm, you will also have the opportunity to recruit them during Version 2.7. While Yelan and Shinobu have very distinct backgrounds and stories, they’re both extremely capable and reliable characters to their friends and allies.
