The world of Genshin Impact, miHoYo’s expansive action RPG has had quite an impact on fans the world over. With so much ground to cover, there’s no way we could get all of the information into just one article. Be sure to keep up to date on our series of “Impact Info”, to stay in the know. Today, we’ll be looking at Liyue, one of the seven regions of Teyvat, and letting you in on a few of its secrets.
Liyue is a nation with a diverse landscape, boasting towering mountains and stone forests, vast plains and life-giving riverbeds that form a terrain rich in lapis lazuli. The picturesque landscapes are breathtaking no matter the season and an untold number of ancient gifts have been hidden by the demons of the rocks, waiting to be unearthed.
During your travels, you’ll happen upon many beautiful areas like Bishui Plain, the source of the Bishui River which runs through the nation; Minlin, home of the Dragon-queller, an enormous tree that was used to seal away a dragon spirit; and the Chasm, a Subregion plagued by a string of mysteries that affect the local workers.
