The 2.2 event stream might have brought with a tonne of announcements, but the more important thing is that the game is updating its roster with three new characters in the next Event Wishes. Using Prima Gems (paid currency) you can acquire the new lads and lass, with all three getting a boost in chance in the gacha roll.
Thoma – who was heavily featured on the English stream – is a polearm user, under the fire element and is rated four stars. He’ll also have a hangout event later on down the line. Alongside him in the fire department is Hu Tao, who will also feature in the Moment of Bloom Event Wish, so both characters will be up for grabs under the same roll.
Tartaglia, the water element character, will be in the Farewell of Snezhnaya banner, though it wasn’t announced who else will be in that gacha chance as well.
They showed off some gameplay of the new characters, with that all too familiar look to the combat encounters. While 2.2 is making some waves with the amount of content included, I wouldn’t expect too much of a change-up between the three new additions for how you actually play the game.
Meanwhile, for weapons, it seems that the choices appear to be focused around the new playable characters, with a Polearm and archery included.
Genshin Impact’s 2.2 update hits October 13th and comes with codes that will expire on the 4th of October, 2021, 12 am (UTC-4), so be sure to get them to input now to get the benefits!
