New Alternative to Daily Commissions

If you are familiar with Honkai: Star Rail's daily task system, Version 4.1 will finally have something like that in Genshin Impact! Starting in the new version, you can now take on multiple adventure encounters of your choosing, which counts towards your Encounter Points.

If you feel like collecting materials and participating on events instead of taking the usual Daily Commissions, you can do this instead! See more info about it in the guide below:

Numerous outlets have reported on Hu Tao and Venti being the re-run characters; any reason we haven't updated this page with that yet? Hu Tao is not even in the list of speculated re-run characters on this site even though she's as good as confirmed.
