Genshin Impact Version 1.5 patch notes bring PS5 upgrade & Serenitea home decoration

The Version 1.5 update for Genshin Impact has arrived, bringing new characters, upgrades for PS5 players, and the Serenitea Pot home decoration system.

1

Genshin Impact continues to be one of the most notable free-to-play games of the previous year, with developer MiHoYo allowing players to take on a vast adventure through a lush and colorful land. The game has gotten some fantastic updates since launch, bringing new characters and regions to the game, and it just got its latest big patch. Genshin Impact Version 1.5 not only launches new characters and adventures, but also a Serenitea Pot home decoration system and upgrades specifically for the PS5 console. You can check out the full notes here.

Genshin Impact Version 1.5 patch notes

The Genshin Impact Version 1.5 update, dubbed “Beneath the Light of Jadeite” launched on April 28, 2021, following a tease earlier this month about the home decoration system and PS5 upgrades. In addition, a new Serenitea Pot system is now live that allow players to claim and decorate their own home space in the game. No doubt, the Serenitea system is something MiHoYo will return to with plenty of decorations (probably some at a paid premium) for a long time to come. You can check out the full notes just below:

New System: Serenitea Pot

  • Adepti use Serenitea Pots as media through which they can channel their adeptal power and create realms and abodes.
  • As the owner of this realm, you may decorate it however you wish and turn it into a home away from home.
  • After using and summoning the Serenitea Pot, you can interact with it and enter the abode within.
  • You can also use and summon the pot while you are within its confines. Interacting with the Serenitea Pot in this state will allow you to leave it.
  • You can also directly open the map interface and fast travel to any of the Teleport Waypoints to immediately leave the Serenitea Pot.

Teapot Spirit

  • A spirit that lives inside the teapot. It is said that she was created by the adepti themselves. She looks after many matters within the realm, serving as a butler of sorts.

Trust Rank

  • As you create more furnishings for the first time, the teapot spirit's Trust in you will increase. Accumulate Trust to increase your Trust Rank.
  • Increasing Trust Rank will unlock features for the Serenitea Pot or allow you to obtain various rewards.

Adeptal Energy

  • The amount of Adeptal Energy within the realm will gradually increase along with the number of furnishings placed.
  • Once a new Adeptal Energy Rank is reached, the realm's output will also increase.

Creating

  • You can obtain the materials required to create furnishings in many different ways, all around Teyvat.
  • While visiting your friends' realms, you can also assist them in creating furnishings by reducing their creation time.
  • You can provide assistance to multiple friends each day, but the same person cannot be assisted twice.

Realm Depot

  • You can use Realm Currency in the Serenitea Pot to exchange for items of your choice.
  • During the Teapot Traveling Salesman's visits, you can also enter other realms to exchange with Salesmen within them for desired items.

New Characters

5-Star Character "Dance of the Shimmering Wave" Eula (Cryo)

  • Vision: Cryo
  • Weapon: Claymore
  • The Spindrift Knight, a scion of the old aristocracy, and the Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company. The reason for which a descendant of the ancient nobles might join the Knights remains a great mystery in Mondstadt to this very day.
  • Tapping Eula's Elemental Skill "Icetide Vortex" deals Cryo DMG and provides Eula with the Grimheart effect. Holding her Elemental Skill consumes all the stacks of Grimheart and deals AoE Cryo DMG to opponents in front of her. When the Grimheart stacks are consumed, surrounding opponents will have their Physical RES and Cryo RES decreased. Each consumed stack of Grimheart will be converted into an Icewhirl Brand that deals Cryo DMG to nearby opponents.
  • Eula's Elemental Burst "Glacial Illumination" deals AoE Cryo DMG and creates a Lightfall Sword that follows her around. After this, when Eula's own Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst deal DMG to opponents, they will charge the Lightfall Sword. Once its duration ends, the Lightfall Sword will descend and explode violently, dealing Physical DMG that scales on the number of energy stacks the Lightfall Sword has accumulated.
  • *"Dance of the Shimmering Wave" Eula (Cryo) will be available in a future event wish.

4-Star Character "Wise Innocence" Yanfei

  • Vision: Pyro
  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • A well-known legal adviser active in Liyue Harbor. A brilliant young lady in whose veins runs the blood of an illuminated beast.
  • Yanfei's Normal Attack has a Scarlet Seal effect. While Scarlet Seals are present, Yanfei's Stamina consumption is decreased. A Charged Attack consumes all Scarlet Seals, with the AoE and DMG of the attack increasing according to the amount of Scarlet Seals consumed.
  • Yanfei's Elemental Skill "Signed Edict" deals AoE Pyro DMG. Hitting opponents with the flames grants Yanfei the maximum number of Scarlet Seals.
  • Yanfei's Elemental Burst "Done Deal" deals AoE Pyro DMG, granting Yanfei the maximum number of Scarlet Seals and applying the Brilliance effect to her. While Brilliance is in effect, Yanfei's Charged Attack DMG is increased and she is granted a Scarlet Seal at fixed intervals.
  • *In the event wish "Gentry of Hermitage," "Wise Innocence" Yanfei (Pyro) will receive a huge drop-rate boost!

New Equipment

Song of Broken Pines (5-Star Claymore)

  • A part of the "Millennial Movement" that wanders amidst the winds. Increases the wielder's ATK. When Normal or Charged Attacks hit opponents, the character gains a Sigil of Whispers. This effect can be triggered once every 0.3s. When you possess 4 Sigils of Whispers, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain the "Millennial Movement: Banner-Hymn" effect for 12s. This effect increases Normal ATK SPD and ATK. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Whispers for 20s. Of the many effects of the "Millennial Movement," buffs of the same type will not stack.

New Artifacts

Tenacity of the Millelith (4-Star and 5-Star)

  • 2-Piece Set: HP is increased.
  • 4-Piece Set: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased and their Shield Strength is increased for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.

Pale Flame (4-Star and 5-Star)

  • 2-Piece Set: Physical DMG is increased.
  • 4-Piece Set: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, ATK is increased for 7s. This effect stacks up to 2 times and can be triggered once every 0.3s. Once 2 stacks are reached, the 2-set effect is increased by 100%.
  • Obtain artifacts in the above sets from Ridge Watch, the new Domain of Blessing at Bishui Plain.

New Domains

New Trounce Domain: Beneath the Dragon-Queller

Azhdaha

  • An enormous dragon as ancient as the mountains themselves.
  • In an age that has all but faded from memory, he stood shoulder to shoulder with one who ruled over a harbor of stone.

He has also become disfigured from the various kinds of erosion he has been subjected to.

  • Located at Nantianmen
