Genshin Impact 2.3 | Leaks, New Characters, Release Date!

Genshin Impact continues to enthrall travelers with expansions to the world of Teyvat—from new characters to weapons and exciting events to keep everyone on their toes.

Check out this compilation of leaked content that's expected to drop in the game's Version 2.3. But remember: take leaks with a grain of salt and know that changes between the beta server and actual release aren't uncommon.

A huge thank you to UBatcha, Genshin_Intel, Lumie, WFP, BLANK, Honey Impact, and the Genshin Impact community.

Genshin Impact 2.3 Release Date

Genshin Impact's Version 2.3 update is scheduled for Nov. 24, 2021. This is subject to change but falls in line with the game's attempt to roll out a consistent six-week update period.

This is our tentative road map of when the updates should be released. Anything after Update 2.3 is purely guesswork based on the game's six-week update schedule so far, as miHoYo has not released another roadmap.

Leaks

New Characters

Genshin Impact has confirmed through its official channels that two new characters will appear in Version 2.3.

Arataki Itto—Five-Star Geo Claymore

Fast as the wind and mighty as thunder, he is an intrepid man with Oni blood running through his veins.

For all character information such as Arataki Itto Skills, Constellations, and Ascension Materials, we've got you covered.

If you want him as your tank, why not get ready for Arataki Itto's best build?

Gorou—Four-Star Geo Bow

Born with a beast-like fighting intuition and tenacious will, he can find a way to victory even in the most critical moments.

Within Gorou exists a soul as vast and reliable as the earth.

For all character information such as Gorou Skills, Constellations, and Ascension Materials, we've got you covered.

If you want him why not get ready and have a look at a Gorou best build.


These two additions are expected to drop during the second banner on Dec. 14, 2021. They'll bring in a new Defense meta and plenty of possibilities for full Geo team comps. Currently, there's no information on the first banner that will be released on Nov. 24, 2021, but speculations hint at a possible Albedo rerun due to his relevance in the 2.3 Events.

New Weapons

The leak mentions two new weapons for Version 2.3:

Redhorn Stonrthresher (Claymore)

Cinnabar Spindle (Sword)

New Artifacts

As these Artifacts can't be farmed in the current in-game Domains, per the leak, players can anticipate a new Domain to arrive in Version 2.3 as well.

Divine Chorus

Husk of Opulent Dreams

New Enemies

Version 2.3 will bring in a new array of challenges. In particular, the update will expand on Version 2.1 and 2.2's Corrosion debuff, heightening the need for healers in team comps.

Golden Wolflord—World Boss

The king of the Riftwolves. The Golden Wolflord's attacks can apply stacks of the "Corrosion" status, which will cause all characters in the party to continuously lose HP. In combat, the Wolflord will summon Rifthound Alphas to provide it with shields. Attack the Rifhound Alphas with Geo DMG to destroy the Golden Wolflord's shields.

The Golden Wolflord takes the form of a giant, flying Rifthound, which means that players must use ranged DPS characters to defeat the boss. It drops the Rifthorn Regalia, which a leak describes as one of Aragaki Itto's Ascension materials.

New Name Cards

New Pet

A new pet ninken (ninja dog) will be rewarded to players through the event called Hachi. There's currently no information about whether or not it will explore Teyvat with the player or stay in the Serenitea Pot.

New Furniture

The Leisurely Device: Rhythmic Sprinter will allow players to play through custom parkour trials with friends in their Serenitea Pot! A leaderboard is accessible for you to keep track of wins and losses.

New Hangouts

Gorou and Beidou's Hangout events are expected to be released with the new Version, but the content of the stories is still unknown.

New Events

The most exciting part about any update is arguably the event list, which will determine the content that keeps players busy for the next month.

Dust and Shadowed Snow

This exciting event is the second part of Albedo's story quest from Version 1.2, Chalk Prince and the Dragon. It will bring players back to Dragonspine, where they can participate in a series of battle and training instances. Plus, there's a new Snowman-building function.

Each Snowman consists of eight different parts that players can trade among friends. Players must build a Snowman to obtain the free four-star weapon, Cinnabar Spindle.

Hachi

Hachi is an event that will introduce a new in-game mechanic. Using the Omni-Ubiquity Net, players can catch creatures in the overworld that can live in the Serenitea Pot.

Misty Dungeon: Realm of Light

The Misty Dungeon, which first ran in Version 1.5, is expected to get a rerun in Version 2.3. There are seven trials that a predetermined roster of characters can complete. They won't benefit from Elemental Resonance within the event stages, and their Constellations will be based on the player's existing characters. But players can still use characters they don't own in the event trials.

Golden Wolflord Event

While there are no clear details concerning this event, it's most likely an introduction to the new Golden Wolflord World Boss—much like Azhdaha and the Thunder Manifestation's release in previous Versions.
