Genshin Impact Reputation System Guide

Last Update: November 6, 2020 5:32 PM /


Genshin Impact City Reputation Preview

The Genshin Impact 1.1 is releasing on Nov. 11. As many players have continued to work through the present story and endgame activities, this update will bring new characters and other new features. Players who are clamoring for more content will be happiest to hear that with the 1.1 update, a new Reputation System is going to be rolled out for the two current regions.

What is the Genshin Impact Reputation System?

The two regions, Mondstadt and Liyue, will have a new vendor that you can approach that will have different missions and requests that you can complete in order to build up your reputation in those areas. In Mondstadt, you speak to Hertha, a Knights of Favonius Coordinator, and in Liyue you speak to Ms. Yu, the Minister of Civil Affairs Secretary. In order to get access to the Genshin Impact Reputation System, you need to have completed the following requirements:

  • Have an Adventure Rank of over 22
  • For Mondstadt Reputation: Clear the Archon Quest "The Outlander Who Caught the Wind" Act I
  • For Liyue Reputation: Clear the Archon Quest "Farewell, Archaic Lord" Chapter I Act II

Once you have the Reputation System unlocked, you'll be able to increase your reputation by completing the following types of objectives. Each objective will be completable in the region they were accepted in.

  • Bounties - Track and defeat certain enemies. You can complete up to three bounties per week, and the bounties will refresh every Monday.
  • Requests - Complete local NPC requests. You can complete up to three requests per week, and the requests will refresh every Monday.
  • World Exploration - Complete exploration activities, including opening chests, finding Oculi, and unlocking waypoints. This is based on a percentage, so it's likely this progress will carry over so you can get started on this one early!
  • Region Quest - These are specific quests in Mondstadt and Liyue that you'll be able to complete.

For completing regions of the map for the World Exploration, there will now be a percentage indicator as you zoom out the map letting you know which regions you have more to gather in.
