New Weekly Boss: Azhdaha

Genshin - 1.5 Azhdaha

A new weekly boss will be added, the large and intimidating Geovishap(?) Dragon, Azhdaha. It was shown breaking free of a formation of Zhongli's Stone Steles, so it might have something to do with his Story Quest!

New Boss: Cryo Hypostasis

Genshin - 1.5 Cryo Hypostasis

Seemingly set to appear in the Dragonspine area, another boss, the Cryo Hypostasis, is also set to release in 1.5. Like the other Hypostasis bosses, it looks like Daleth will have some familiar, and some entirely new, tricks up its sleeves.

Hide and Seek Event: Windtrace

Diona Event: Energy Amplifier Initiation

Genshin - 1.5 Livestream Energy Amplifier Initiation

The Energy Amplifier Initiation event is an event where you collect Fragments and use the Divinition Disc to boost your party in the event Domains. The best part of this event, however, is probably the chance to get a free Diona!

      why not both? Keqing as your dps and Rosaria as your sub dps

    • >>[132]
      I couldn't resist the temptation of 2 whole acquaint fates!! (lol), so I did ascend to AR 51 and world lvl. 7 - but of course I can always opt to decrease it, for my sake as well, or go to yours if that's a barrier. All else still applies - I'll add that I have dozens of mining spots marked on my map that I'll usually hit daily, as well as pick up any stragglers on the way with Ning's minimap ore finder, and you're welcome to tag along :)
