This game is still under active development.

Genshin Impact is an open-world RPG that, depending on who you ask, is either a modern masterpiece that pushes the boundaries of open-world games or a shameless rip-off of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with in-app purchases, gacha mechanics, and more than a few controversies regarding its community.

Either way, those drop rates suck.

This page sucks.
If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.
Specifically: Not enough documentation on which version(s) the content on this page originated from (pre-v1.0 content should go to the Proto page, not here). Some images also have compression artifacts.
To do:
  • There's a lot of revisional differences.
  • Any major regional differences? The Chinese version supposedly has a more aggressive transparency filter when the camera goes underneath a character, and there were also censored placeholder outfits for Amber, Jean, Mona and Rosaria for a short time before their alternate outfits were implemented.
  • Unused voice clips, including possible variants in different languages. (Possibly enough for a sub-page?)
  • As of October 23, 2022, internal server leaks for updates up to v4.0 have been spread, and a very early version of Alhaitham's parameters was leaked. Could go to a Development page?

Unused Models

Shockwave (Transformers Dark Of The Moon)

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Which version(s) did this model come from and what is its path/filename? Are there any textures for it?

Oddly, there's a model of Shockwave from Transformers Dark Of The Moon in the game files, This might be a test model or a mistake by a developer. Even though it's unclear what version it got added in, this model got removed from the files in update 4.6

Unused Characters

Early Electro Traveler

Version 1.5 and 1.6 include a preliminary Electro Traveler with unfinished animations for their skill and burst. It can be changed to by sending the GMtalk command skill depot 507 while using Aether, or skill depot 707 for Lumine.

  • By default, only the skill is available for use (as seen in the dev build), but the burst can be used if the GMtalk command energy infinite on is sent. Note that these are just animations; no actual attacks are performed by the skill or burst yet.
  • v1.6 updated the talent name for Aether's normal attack to "Normal Attack: Foreign Thundershock", while Lumine's remains nameless.
  • The burst's animation for both Travelers shows them doing a quick spin and swinging some kind of sword made of light. Lumine's leg clips through her dress during her animation.
  • Unlike the skill, both Aether and Lumine have unique animations for their bursts.
  • Using the burst will lock the camera from being manually moved by the player until switching to another character.
Aether Lumine

Shiro Maiden

哼……是吗?她是那样评价暗夜英雄的吗?…至少在蒙德的黑暗面消失殆尽之前,她批评得没错。 하하하하하하. 그래, 그녀는 다크 히어로를 그렇게 평가하는구나. 적어도 몬드에서 어둠이 완전히 사라지기 전까지, 그녀의 비판을 부정할 수 없어 Really...? So that's how she feels about the Darknight Hero... *sigh* She's not wrong. At least, not until the darkness has been wiped out of Mondstadt. フン。そうか?彼女はそんな風に闇夜の英雄を評価しているのか?少なくともモンドの闇が消え失せるその時まで、彼女の意見は正鵠を射たものとなるだろう。 Would've been Diluc's dialogue for the About Rosaria topic.
