These are the items that will be introduced as improvements in the Genshin Impact 1.1 update:

  • A detector to mark unopened chests, as well as Anemoculi and Geoculus that are missing from the map
  • A bottle to capture anemo spirits and release them anywhere to soar more quickly with the glider
  • A portable pot for cooking dishes on the go
  • A portable teleporter that can be placed anywhere on the map. Only one can be used at a time and it lasts for seven days.
  • You can have direct access to food dishes for easy consumption.

One of the big problems that Genshin Impact has is its very limited use of Resin, an object needed to obtain objects that are only found in the Domains. miHoYo has provided a temporary solution that consists of an object that allows you to reserve unused Resin to be able to spend it separately. The developer has not specified how this object will work or if it will have any limits.

Genshin Impact update 1.1 will arrive on November 13 for PC, PlayStation 4, and mobile devices. The developers have confirmed an improved version of the game for the PlayStation 5. For more gaming news, updates, and articles, check out our website at
