miHoYo has further detailed How exploration and gameplay will function in The Chasm, a new area that players can traverse in Genshin Impact Version 2.6. This includes a complete breakdown of the Lumenstone Adjuvant item that was detailed during the Genshin Impact Version 2.6 Special Program. Additionally, the post reveals some obstacles players will need to overcome in order to progress through the Chasm.
For example, Dark Mud can be found throughout the area. Players walking through Dark Mud will have their HP slowly drained, and their movement speed will be reduced. Certain monsters within the Dark Mud will also become more powerful. Additionally, Dark Mud drains the energy of the Lumenstone Adjuvant. However, players can get rid of Dark Mud by destroying Oozing Consecrations with the Lumenstone Adjuvant. This can be done by using the Lumenstone Adjuvant’s unique ability, Blooming Light.
Players can increase the range of Blooming Light, as well as the general visibility provided by the light, through upgrading it. This can be done by collecting Lumenspars and Lumenstone Ore. While exploring, players can recharge the Lumenstone Adjuvant through the Lumenlamps and Lucklight Flies.
The Chasm will be more than just a new area to explore Genshin Impact, as an Archon Quest is tied to the area. Players will be able to interact with Dainsleif through this Archon Quest and learn more about the secret of the twins.
Genshin Impact is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Android and iOS devices. It is in development for Nintendo Switch. The 2.6 update will launch on March 30, 2022.
