Raiden Shogun, the Electro Archon of Inazuma, is finally playable in Genshin Impact version 2.1. Fans, especially those who collected Archon for their team, were ecstatic after the revelation.

Raiden Shogun is a 5-star character, has Electro Vision, and wields a Polearm. However, her Elemental Burst allows her to use Sword for a limited time.

Judging by her kits, Raiden Shogun can be utilized as both a DPS and a support character.

Since the trailer of Genshin Impact 2.0, Sangonomiya Kokomi has been referred to as 'Princess' or 'Mermaid' by fans. In live stream 2.1, the nickname has also been used by the voice actors of Genshin Impact characters, praising how graceful Kokomi is.

She is a 5-star character with Hydro Vision and wields a catalyst.

Kujou Sara is the only new 4-star character in Genshin Impact 2.1. Her loyalty to Raiden Shogun is too powerful, following her in the first banner.

Kujou Sara wields a bow, has Electro Vision, and is a general of the Tenryou Commission. She is introduced as someone bold, decisive, and skilled in battle.

Aloy is a character produced from the collaboration event of Genshin Impact and Horizon Zero Dawn. She is a 5-star character, wielding a bow, and has Cryo Vision.

All Genshin Impact players with an Adventure Rank of 20 or higher will be eligible to get this event-exclusive character via in-game mail.

After the Version 2.2 update maintenance, the second phase begins. Aloy will be handed to players who have not yet obtained the character during Phase 1 and can check into Genshin Impact on any available platform.

At the Lunar Realm event, Genshin Impact fans will help fisherwoman Kujirai Momiji catch a legendary fish called the Lunar Leviathan. Thus, Travelers will undergo intense fishing training to complete the commission.

The Moonchase Festival is one of the traditional festivals to be held in Liyue. According to one of the Developer's Discussions, this festival is tied to one character in Genshin Impact, Keqing. This claim is further proven by her appearance in the version 2.1 trailer.

Genshin Impact revealed that the Adventurers' Guild had combined many fascinating challenges with the traditions of the Moonchase Festival, placing many treasure chests in Liyue for players to discover. After completing all the challenges, gamers will also obtain a new fish-theme claymore, 'Luxurious Sea-Lord.'

The 2.1 live stream also provides other information regarding the character banner, new islands, and even the appearance of Scaramouche in the upcoming Archon Quest.
