Genshin Impact players call for more exploration-savvy characters like Xianyun

Xianyun Genshin Impact

With the vast world of Teyvat in Genshin Impact, players want more exploration-savvy characters such as Xianyun.

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action role-playing game by HoYoverse, the same developers for the popular games Honkai: Star Rail and Honkai Impact 3rd. The players get to experience the world through the various story quests, and especially through the freedom to explore its vast world.

Teyvat, the continent that makes up the world in Genshin Impact, has seven regions. There are currently only five regions that players can explore, which include Mondstadt, Liyue, Inazuma, Sumeru, and Fontaine. Players are still waiting on the announcement and release of the last regions, Natlan and Snezhnaya.

Five regions may sound small for those who haven’t dived into the world of Genshin Impact, but it’s actually massive. This is where the extra movement from the characters comes in handy, which prompted a Reddit user to want more of them.

The traveler shared how their friend paid them to do the dailies but realized they’d been using Xianyun non-stop for exploration since they pulled for her. In their account, exploring the world was easier with Xianyun due to her jumps. They had to use the double-dash to make the characters run faster.

Another player expressed their obsession with Xianyun’s triple jump, stating: “I’m obsessed with her exploration triple jump that gets a shorter cool down if you don’t use the plunge. It just feels so seamless compared to other character animations used for exploration as well.”

Many agreed that Xianyun, especially when they got her first constellation, made the exploration much easier. Climbing high mountains in the game can be quite a hard task to do and may take more time when using other characters but it’s a “cakewalk” for Xianyun.

Others asked if having Xianyun is an upgrade from the Wanderer and C2 Yelan in terms of faster exploration. A Reddit user explained that the Wanderer can either go horizontally or vertically, while Yelan can only use her skill on land. Either way, they are already good in terms of exploration.

One traveler now keeps Xianyun as a permanent member of their overworld team due to the fun and convenience she brings to exploration. A few more characters that players could use in exploration are Venti, Ayaka, Mona, and Kazuha.

If you were able to get Xianyun, congratulations! Make sure to check out this build guide to unleash her potential in combat!
