Genshin Impact continues to enthrall travelers with expansions to the world of Teyvat, new weaponized characters, and exciting events to keep everyone on their toes.

Check out this compilation of leaked content that should drop in version 2.3 of the game. But remember: take leaks with a grain of salt and know that changes between the beta server and the real-life version are not uncommon.

Genshin Impact 2.3 Release Date

Version 2.3 will be released on November 24, 2021 and will run until January 5, 2022.


New characters

Genshin Impact has confirmed, through its official channels, two new characters that will appear in version 2.3.

Five Star Aragaki Itto—Geo Claymore

Swift as the wind and powerful as thunder, he is a fearless man with Oni blood running through his veins.

Gorou — Arc Géo four stars

Born with beast-fighting intuition and tenacious willpower, he can find a path to victory even in the most critical moments.

Inside Gorou exists a soul as vast and reliable as the earth.

Both of these additions are set to drop during the second banner on December 14, 2021. They will bring a new Defense meta and plenty of possibilities for full Geo team comps. Currently, there is no information on the first banner that will be released on November 24, 2021, but speculation hints at a possible Albedo replay due to its relevance in 2.3 events.

New weapons

Part of the leak is about two new weapons for 2.3:

Stonrthresher Redhorn (Claymore)

  • Base Attack: 46
  • Secondary Stat: 14,4% Critical Damage
  • Passive ability: +20% defense. Both normal and charged attacks increase the wearer's defense by 28%.
  • How to get: Limited Weapon Banner

Cinnabar brooch (sword)

  • Base Attack: 41
  • Secondary Stat: 15 Defense
  • Passive Ability: +40% elemental skill damage. The effect wears off 0,1 seconds after the elemental skill deals damage and will recharge for 1,5 seconds.
  • How to get: Free from the new Dragonspine event

New Artifacts

Since these artifacts cannot be mined in the game's current realms, according to the leak, players can also anticipate the arrival of a new realm in 2.3.

divine choir

  • 2 pieces: +15% healing bonus
  • 4 pieces: Healing effects generate a Healing Bubble (HB) every 3,5 seconds. It will accumulate stacked healing (SH) as characters are healed. The HB bursts after three seconds, healing all nearby characters for 50% SH (with a max healing value of 30) and damaging nearby enemies for 000% SH simultaneously.

Carcass of Opulent Dreams

  • +30% defense
  • +6% defense and +6% geo damage for geo characters in the field. This stacks once every 0,3 seconds with a maximum of four stacks. Off the field, the set grants a stack every three seconds. And when not in use, a stack disappears every six seconds.

New enemies

Version 2.3 will bring a new range of challenges. In particular, the update will expand on the Corrosion debuff from 2.1 and 2.2, increasing the need for healers in team comps.

Golden Wolflord—World Boss

The King of the Riftwolves. Golden Wolflord's attacks can apply stacks of the "Corrosion" status, which will cause all characters in the party to continuously lose HP. In battle, the Wolflord will summon Rifthound Alphas to provide him with shields. Attack the Rifhound Alphas with Geo DMG to destroy the Golden Wolflord's shields.

The Golden Wolflord takes the form of a giant flying Rifthound, meaning players must use ranged DPS characters to defeat the boss. He drops the Rifthorn Regalia, which a leak indicates is one of Aragaki Itto's Ascension materials.

New Abyss range

Get a head start on preparing the Abyss with these leaks for what the floors should be.

Floor 9

  • Enemies: Unknown
  • Ley Line Disorder: A lightning bolt will strike characters every five seconds, dealing electrical damage. His range of attacks will expand as the challenge drags on.

Floor 10

  • Enemies: Unknown
  • Ley Line Disorder: An opponent will be selected as the leader. Attendants will give the leader +10% physical and elemental resistance, heal their HP by 5% every 12 seconds.

  • Disorder of Ley Lines: +60% geographic damage and physical damage inflicted by all party members.

New business cards

Calling card collectors will be happy to hear that according to the leak, there should be at least three new ones coming in the update.

  • Battle Pass—Travel Notes: Lyratum

new animal

A new ninken pet (ninja dog) will be rewarded by players in the event called Hachi. There is currently no information on whether or not he will explore Teyvat with the player or remain in the Serenitea pot.

New furniture

The Leisurely Device: Rhythmic Sprinter will allow players to participate in custom parkour trials with friends in their Serenitea pot! A leaderboard is available to allow you to track wins and losses.

New Hangouts

The events of Gorou and Beidou's Hangout are expected to be released with the new version, but the content of the stories is still unknown.

New Events

Arguably the most exciting part of any update is the event slate, which will determine the content to keep players busy for the next month.

Shaded dust and snow

This exciting event is the second part of Albedo's story quest from version 1.2, Chalk Prince and the Dragon. It will take players back to Dragonspine, where they can take part in a series of combat and training instances, as well as a new snowman building feature.

In total, each snowman consists of eight different parts that players can trade with friends. Players need to build a snowman to get the free four-star weapon, Cinnabar Spindle.


Hachi is an event that will introduce a new mechanic to the game. Using the Omni-Ubiquity Net, players can catch creatures in the overworld that can live in the Serenitea Pot.

Misty Dungeon: Realm of Light

The Misty Dungeon, which first worked in version 1.5, should be rerun in version 2.3. There are seven trials that a predetermined list of characters can complete. They will not benefit from elemental resonance in the event stages and their constellations will be based on the player's existing characters. But players can still use characters they don't own in Event Trials.

Golden Wolflord Event

While there are no clear details regarding this event, it is likely an introduction to the new Golden Wolflord World Boss, much like Azhdaha and the release of Thunder Manifestation in previous versions.
