Genshin Impact 1.3 Update Leaks, New Characters and Events!

The first banner will feature a new character named Hu Tao. This character is still mysterious but has been given a clue related to Hu Tao in Genshin Impact. Hu Tao was mentioned by Qiqi in his character story.

Hu Tao is a girl with red brown hair who is feared by Qiqi, every time Hu Tao meets Qiqi, Qiqi feels annoyed and wants Hu Tao to die. How could he not, Hu Tao even wanted to bury Qiqi alive because Qiqi was a zombie.

That’s why Qiqi is diligent in exercising in order to maintain the health of Qiqi’s body, which can no longer grow. Hu Tao himself is a five-star character with Pyro’s vision with a Polearm weapon. His ability to summon ghosts is the same as Xiangling’s Gouba.


The second banner is Xiao who is an Adeptus in Genshin Impact. You already know the appearance and gameplay of this character, who is a character with a Polearm weapon and has Vision Anemo.

Xiao is the character most targeted by Genshin Impact gamers, his ability is very interesting because he relies on speed and plugin attacks many times.

Xiao Role itself will be Pure DPS, so for those of you who don’t have DPS, make sure you are eyeing Xiao in the upcoming updates. With this explanation, of course you already know very well about this one character.

Unfortunately there is no information regarding the new 4-star character that will be coming to Genshin Impact 1.3. But certainly many are eyeing Rosalia on the update. Regarding this, maybe we just need to wait for the time.

Buff Zhongli

Not a new character, but the presence of the Zhong Li character buff is the most awaited one in Genshin Impact 1.3. Zhongli will get a significant buff and make him even better as a support character.

There are several buffs that are present in this Zhong Li character, just inserting the new effect of the ZhongLi Dominus Lapidis Talent will give 20% Physical and Elemental RES effects and many others.

Then for normal attacks, Zhongli’s charged attacks and plunging attacks were also increased from 1.39% of Zhongli’s max HP. Not only that, this effect also applies to Zhong Li’s Hold E skill which can increase DMG by 1.9% Max HP.

Actually there are many more buff updates related to Zhong Li on this one, but it won’t be enough if we discuss them all in this article. Now for the full review, you can see the official MiHoYo website.
