Exploring the Blazing Heart of Natlan: Leaks on Map and Gameplay

HoYoverse previously confirmed that Version 5.0 will usher in the fiery nation of Natlan, kicking off a new chapter titled “Act 6: Incandescent Ode of Resurrection” in the Archon questline.

As for venturing through the scorching landscapes, leaks suggest Natlan’s map size will be comparable to Sumeru’s 3.1 desert expansion, which offered a vast expanse to explore. Here’s where things get exciting: rumors hint at the introduction of ridable mounts and a mysterious “Quick Exploration” mechanic in Version 5.0. While details are scarce, it could be akin to the convenient ziplines introduced in Inazuma.

Speaking of mounts, whispers on the wind suggest we might even be able to soar through the skies on dragons! A taste of this fiery experience might be offered in a Version 4.8 event featuring the formidable Durin.

Character Level Cap Increase

The path to power just got longer! Leaks indicate that version 5.0 will raise the maximum character level from 90 to 100. Specific details regarding the required ascension materials and any accompanying stat boosts remain shrouded in mystery.

New Artifacts

Version 5.0 is also rumored to bolster the Artifact Strongbox with exciting new additions. Deepwood Memories, Gilded Dreams, Desert Pavilion Chronicles, and Flower of Paradise Lost are all potential candidates.

Deepwood Memories caters to Dendro characters, while Flower of Paradise Lost and Gilded Dreams offer Elemental Mastery boosts. Desert Pavilion Chronicles, meanwhile, empowers Anemo damage dealers with increased attack speed and bonus damage to charged, plunging, and normal attacks.

While these leaks offer a tantalizing glimpse into Genshin Impact 5.0, it’s important to remember that they haven’t been officially confirmed by HoYoverse. Keep your eyes peeled for official announcements as we inch closer to the fiery embrace of Natlan!
