Traveling in Genshin Impact has become tedious so the game plans to add a new item to make fast travel more efficient.
MiHoYo didn’t waste any resources when developing Genshin Impact. In fact, the game’s content and its map are so vast that it could give Red Dead Redemption II and Final Fantasy XV a run for their money.
But an expansive world like Teyvat will have its own fair share of difficulties. And one of the most common of these difficulties is traveling.
Fast travel on Genshin Impact
The game already has a fast travel system in place for players. This is through the Teleport Waypoints and the Statue of the Seven. Teleport Waypoints are basically fast-travel points that players can use to instant travel to other locations. These ports do not cost anything to use. However, players may find it difficult to locate the Teleport Waypoint locations.
Players can only use Teleport Waypoints that the have activated. Activating these ports also provides experience which is why players should always do so.
The Statue of the Seven also serves as a point of instant travel for players. Not only that, they can also heal characters which gives them an even bigger value than Teleport Waypoints.
With the extremely vast map of Genshin Impact, Teleport Waypoints or even the Statue of the Seven is often scarce. Players can roam around and explore for a long time without coming across one of these waypoints. This makes traveling quite tedious in the game.
Ever since MiHoYo released the game, surveys are often sent out to in-game players to address issues regarding the RPG. And in their latest blog post, the developers are finally addressing some of the issues put forward by the players.
One of these is the addition of a new item with similar functions to Teleport Waypoints.
Possible Portable Teleporter item
Talks of a portable teleporter has long circulated throughout the Genshin Impact community. A 1.1 patch note leak on Reddit details an item which can be planted in an area and serve as a mini Teleport Waypoint.
It is still uncertain if the game will add this exact item. What’s sure is that they will add an item with similar functions on the next update.
“We have developed an item that provides this kind of function which will be available for free in a new system,” MiHoYo says in a response to a Genshin Impact query. “Travelers can look out for this in Version 1.1!”
