New Genshin Map: Mountainous Region Chenyu Vale


In the upcoming Version 4.4, travelers will be able to explore, and traverse the iconic mountainous region of Chenyu Vale. Chenyu Vale, named for the descent of jade, stems from the tale of an adeptus who safeguarded locals from a flood by casting jade bracelets into the waters. This legend has contributed to the area's prosperity over time. Yilong Wharf, renowned for its grand water elevators, acts as a crucial trade route connecting Liyue and Fontaine. Qiaoying Village, known for its tea production, utilizes a roasting technique attributed to the adepti, further adding to the region's cultural significance.


Chenyu Vale experiences persistent clouds and mist, which are visually depicted through the Global Far Fog (GFF) feature. This feature showcases the dynamic transformations of clouds and mist across the region's undulating landscape, adjusting in density and direction based on various factors such as altitude and terrain. For instance, dense clouds gather in low, confined areas, while lighter mist drifts over mountain peaks and open spaces.





New Beast Boss in Genshin 4.4: Solitary Suanni


The latest addition to Genshin Version 4.4 is the Solitary Suanni, an Illuminated Beast boss from the Suanni race, which is the same race as Gaming's pet companion, Man Chai.
