- Leaks suggest that a new five-star Geo user named Chiori will be introduced in the update, potentially as a dual-wielding character with AoE Geo damage abilities.

Recent leaks surrounding Genshin Impact version 4.5 have revealed several side activities, including cat petting, which players will try out next month. As usual, Genshin Impact players will be introduced to a brand-new unit in a major update. This time they will meet the five-star Geo user Chiori, who is rumored to be a dual-wielding character. HoYoverse hasn’t revealed her skills as yet, but some credible leakers provided information about the character’s kit, revealing that she delivers a degree of AoE Geo damage.
Aside from events and quests, there are side activities in Genshin Impact, such as fishing, collecting overworld materials, and daily commissions, which players can do anytime they want. When they need to take a break from the continuous action, Travelers can go around the map and hunt treasures that include rewards. Additionally, there are world quests and dungeon-like domains, which can be considered side activity. They sometimes offer players a challenging combat experience they can’t get from formidable bosses.
Genshin Impact Players Aren’t Happy With One Spiral Abyss Enemy
Many Genshin Impact players share their opinions about one enemy being too powerful in the game’s endgame domain Spiral Abyss.
Some Genshin Impact version 4.5 beta leaks from GuraLeak have revealed in-game footage of new side activities, one of which seems to be potion crafting. From the looks of it, players will pick up three mints to craft a potion that can be consumed. Not many details about this activity have been provided as yet, but there is a likelihood that Travelers will sell these potions to earn Primogems.
Genshin Impact Leaks Reveal Two New Side Activities
In addition to potion crafting, version 4.5 will allegedly add another side activity that will satisfy cat lovers. As seen in the footage, Genshin Impact players will be able to pet cats in their teapots. It will possibly be a permanent activity that will remain in version 4.6 and beyond.
If early leaks are to be believed, Genshin Impact will bring a Mondstadt-themed event in 4.5, during which a brand-new character, Dahlia, will make her introduction in the game. Albedo’s rerun banner will possibly be released at the same time as Dahlia, as both units belong to the Mondstadt region. Besides rerun characters, the flagship event of version 4.5 will give out Primogem rewards.
Some long-awaited quality-of-life features, including an overhauled quest navigation system, will reportedly be added in Genshin Impact update 4.5. Players will take advantage of the Training Guide feature to find ideal artifact setups for their characters and be able to change the graphics settings to “highest quality.” Also, the new quest navigation system will now follow the corresponding map.
Genshin Impact is an open-world RPG made by MiHoYo. Focusing on the interactions between seven elements, Genshin Impact is a free-to-play gacha game with a host of characters, weapons, regions, and more.
