Genshin Impact recently completed its 2.2 live stream on Twitch with information for the next version of the game. Players can soon expect many additions to Genshin Impact, from new characters to events.

When we talk about new additions, the next character banner receives the most hype in society because Genshin Impact will bring back two Damage Per Second (DPS) characters Childe and Hu Tao respectively. In addition, a new bow was also revealed to be the best weapon for Childe, which further increased his DPS in the game.

Rifthounds can strike forward with their claws to deal ground damage and inflict corrosion status on the active character. In addition, they can move beautifully around the battle due to their invisible skill. Characters that are affected lose HP every second, and even those who have shields are affected by the corrosive effect.


Following the anniversary drama, Genshin Impact took the right step to include fan-favorite characters, Childe and Hu Tao, in the next banner. Moreover, Thomas’ popularity may increase Genshin Impact’s rating to normal if his skill meets society’s expectations.
