Seirai is a desolate region and has constant thunderstorms that are destroying the region. Despite the conditions, some locals still live on Seirai Island. Also, you’ll find a talking black cat in the Asase Shrine of Seirai, who is the provisional head priestess of the shrine.
II. Watatsumi Island
Watatsumi is known for its beautiful landscapes, which are surrounded by unique and colorful plantlife. There is a unique culture in Watatsumi where the people worship the giant serpent as their deity. However, the reason behind this culture is the fight with Raiden Shogun.
Furthermore, to fight against Raiden, Watatsumi’s citizens have formed a resistance movement under Sangonomiya Kokomi. You’ll find Sangonomiya Shrine at the center of Watatsumi island.
2. Moonchase Festival
New events are also joining us in Genshin Impact, but none as impactful as the Moonchase Festival. In the event, you need to go to Liyue Harbor to redecorate and put some advertisements for Moonchase Festival. Moreover, you’ll get the storyline of the Moonchase Festival along with new partners Keqing and Xiangling.
According to leaks by Project Celestia, NPCs like Madame Ping, Cloud Retainer, Xiangling’s Guoba, and the much-loved Baizhu may also be involved in the Moonchase Festival.
Apart from the Moonchase Festival storyline, you’ll get 2 more different types of gameplay.
Well, you need to search Mondstadt, Liyue, and Dragonspine to find Mystmoon Chests and Moonchase Charms in the Moonlight Seeker part.
Meanwhile, the other part of the Moonchase Festival is the Trail of Delicacies. You have to fight enemy groups whose leaders have special buffs. During this event, you have to submit cooked dishes to get buffs of their own that will help you to complete the Trail of Delicacies challenges.
3. New Characters
After getting Genshin Impact 2.1, you can summon Aloy, Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara, and Sangonomiya Kokomi.

There are 2 new 5-star weapons shown on the banner of version 2.1. The Engulfing Lightning polearm and the Everlasting Moonglow catalyst will both appear in the upcoming update.
Since Raiden Shogun is a polearm user, so the Engulfing Lightning weapon will be used by her. Similarly, Kokomi will wield a catalyst so that the Everlasting Moonglow will live alongside her.
