Genshin Impact recently received a hotfix that made some changes to the character Yae Miko and fixed some bugs.

Genshin Impact v2.6 update came out on March 31. The new update introduced the Liyue Chasm area filled with puzzles, chests, World and Archon Quests, etc. We also got the new 5 star Hydro Sword user Kamisato Ayato. Ayato was one of the most anticipated characters in Genshin Impact since his first introduction during Arataki Itto’s character teaser.

But, in the update, there were some bugs. HoYoverse also changed Yae Miko’s Sesshou Sakura turret’s targeting priority. As part of this change, the turrets targeted the enemies closest to them. But Genshin Impact players were not a fan of this change. Many players even dubbed this as a nerf to Yae Miko’s 2nd Constellation, which increases the range of the turrets.

HoYoverse recently released a hotfix in Genshin Impact, reverting the change to Yae Miko and fixing some bugs. Players will get 100 Primogems compensation because of this fix. They also listed the known issues in the Genshin Impact 2.6 update and when they might get fixed.

Below you will find all the details about this April 6 hotfix, including the known issues, bug fixes, and more.

Genshin Impact Hotfix Patch Notes:

Known Issues:

  1. There is an issue in the current version whereby the Electro-Charged reaction mechanism is abnormal. This is a new issue that surfaced after the Version 2.4 update. The development team has detected the cause of this issue and it will be fixed in the Version 2.7 update. After the issue is fixed, the Electro-Charged reaction mechanism is expected to function as it did before the Version 2.4 update.
  2. Continuous attacks have a very low probability of abnormally and significantly extending the duration of various effects on the character Kamisato Ayato (up to twice the duration), including but not limited to the “Takimeguri Kanka” state from his Elemental Skill, “Corrosion”, and “Smoldering Flames” that are applied to the character. The developers have detected the initial cause of this issue. As the fix involves fundamental logic, this issue will be fixed in Version 3.0 after comprehensive testing.
  3. There is a localization error in Korean regarding the description of Kamisato Ayato’s Elemental Burst in the “Test Run” event. The developers are already working to fix this issue, please stay tuned for future notices regarding the exact time of the fix.
  4. When using an iOS or Android device to play the game, after some characters cast their Elemental Bursts, there may be a problem with their weapons’ color display. This issue will be fixed in a later version update. Please stay tuned for future notices.
  5. After updating the official driver released by Razer on January 20, some Travelers using Razer devices on PC may experience a crash error when logging in to the game. Travelers who encounter this problem can try to uninstall the Razer driver first and restart the computer as a temporary fix.
