Genshin Impact Jean Skin

Genshin Impact skins (called outfits) have been added in Genshin Impact update 1.6, called Midsummer Island Adventure. They are featured along with a new character, a new limited-time area, and new weapons. As usual, players will also receive compensation for every hour the servers are down, so players can expect x300 Primogems as Maintenance Compensation and x300 Primogems as Issue Fix Compensation. 

While this sounds all fine and dandy, the maintenance compensation only applies to Travelers who have reached Adventure Rank 5 or above, and they have until Version 1.6 is over to claim it. The same goes for the Issue Fix Compensation, except they have until June 12 to claim their 300 Primogems.

What Else is New in Genshin Impact Update 1.6?

As for the rest of the update, the biggest inclusion is the dressing room update, where the new Genshin Impact outfits have been added. This includes Barbara - Summertime Sparkle, which is her beach attire. If you want to claim it, you'll have to take part of the "Echoing Tales" limited-time event. If you don't get it in time, you'll have to buy it from the Character Outfit Shop, where the Genshin impact skins are sold.

There's also an outfit for Jean called the Sea Breeze Dandelion, which will be available to purchase for a limited-time discount. After the discount is over it'll be available for its original price in premium currency.

The new event is called, shocker, Midsummer Island Adventure, and during it, you'll explore islands, complete challenges, and try to get the event-exclusive catalyst. There'll also be rewards such as Dodoco Tales (Catalyst), Northlander Billet Trove, Crown of Insight, and Furnishing Blueprints. 

The new 5-star character is called "Scarlet Leaves Pursue Wild Waves" Kaedehara Kazuha (Anemo). The vision is Anemo and the weapon is a sword. The character is described is a gentle and carefree soul who is a wandering samurai from Inazuma. He'll use his Elemental Skill, Chihayaburu, to pull opponents and objects in and up in the air before he uses his plunging attack to deal Anemo DMG and generate a wind tunnel to pull opponents in again. That sounds effective, but also really tiring. I bet he never skips leg day.
