Genshin Impact Update 1.1 will bring with it some much-needed improvements to the Genshin Impact Resin resource. These changes will make it easier to complete Battle Pass missions and will also allow you to farm more Resin through in-game activities.

What's changing about Genshin Impact Resin?

This news comes via a developer diary shared by Genshin Impact creator miHoYo. In the diary, miHoYo addresses some of the most common player concerns regarding Genshin Impact, one of which is the difficulty in completing Battle Pass missions using Resin. This resource is used to purchase high-level upgrade materials for equipment, and the Battle Pass currently requires you to spend a certain amount of Resin in order to get a large chunk of XP towards your next Battle Pass level. Once your Resin runs out, you need to wait for it to recharge, or you can obtain an item called Fragine Resin that restores your Original Resin by 60 points immediately.

The diary takes the form of an FAQ, and one of the main complaints is that players "never have enough Original Resin", making it difficult to complete daily tasks and Battle Pass quests. In Update 1.1, miHoYo has decreased the Resin requirement for Battle Pass missions from 1,600 to 1,200, and has increased the maximum Original Resin players can hold from 120 to 160.

In essence, this will have three key effects on the gameplay of Genshin Impact. First, it will increase the amount of farming players can do for upgrade materials each day. Second, it will make achieving Battle Pass levels and completing in-game missions a little easier. Third, the reduced Resin requirement for missions will reduce pressure to spend real-world money or large amounts of in-game currency on Resin-restoring items.

What else does miHoYo address in the Genshin Impact FAQ?

More changes are on the way in Genshin Impact Update 1.1. Developer miHoYo says it's adding new filters for artifacts based on attributes, making it easier to organize and find the artifact you want. You'll also notice small character avatars appearing next to certain artifacts and weapons, denoting which ones are equipped and by whom. There will also be an item that adds custom teleport waypoints, making fast travel more convenient.

According to miHoYo, the devs are also working on a way to change controller and keyboard bindings, "part of which" will be live in Update 1.1. It's not clear exactly which part of this functionality will be available in that update, but miHoYo says that whatever hasn't been implemented by then will be available "in a later version". We'll bring you more on that as soon as we get it.
