Travelers in Genshin Impact have explored the nations of Moon City and Liyue, and Inazuma is next on the list.

Genshin Impact players have been waiting for Inazuma for months and it seems the wait is almost over. Players will soon be exploring the electro nation and likely accomplishing the traveler’s goal of facing the electro archon.

Although the roadmap for the main story content in Inazuma is still blurry, leaks have indicated when the nation will appear and how the characters will explore it.

Disclaimer: This article will reveal information from the final quest, Autumn Winds, Scarlet Leaves. Leaked information can also contain potential spoilers, although it should be received with some skepticism.

Inazuma story revealed in the plot of Genshin Impact

Travelers have learned a few things about Inazuma by just completing a few key story quests. For the protagonist of Genshin Impact, the current problem with Inazuma is that it is a closed nation.

The traveler has to go to Inazuma, but the strict guidelines there prevent people from entering or leaving the country.

Additionally, the electro archon Baal rules directly over Inazuma under the title Raiden Shogun, which is very different from Ventis and Zhongli’s hands-off approach.

The Archon also issued a vision hunting decree that persecutes those like Kazuha who have an elemental vision. Your goal is to offer all the visions in Inazuma to a statue of the Thousand-Armed Hundred-Eyed God.

The exact reason why the Electro Archon became, or at least looks like, a tyrant is currently unknown. It is known that she was not among the original seven winners of the Archon War. However, players will have to wait for a fuller backstory to understand it.

Based on the quest “Autumn Winds, Scarlet Leaves” it seems certain that Beidou and Kazuha will help the traveler reach Inazuma. The journey, as Kazuha mentions, will be tricky. Wind and rain, symbolic of Baal’s desire to keep the nation closed, will jeopardize the trip to Inazuma.

When will Inazuma be published in Genshin Impact?

According to speculation, Genshin Impact Inazuma will be releasing Update 1.7 from July 20th to 21st. Of course, the Genshin Impact team can decide to release Inazuma at a later date in the six-week term of version 1.7.

The game developers have not confirmed with certainty that Inazuma will appear in the next version, although the main storyline indicated that it will be released very soon. Additionally, Genshin Impact leakers have pointed out a lot of Inazuma-related content that is expected in the next patch.

According to Leaks, some areas of Inazuma will have high levels of electrical energy that will damage characters over time. This will make it very difficult or even impossible to explore all of Inazuma once the traveler reaches the coast.

To make exploration easier, Inazuma will likely have the Sacred Sakura Tree, which Electrograna enhances as players ascend the tree. These Electrograna protect characters from environmental damage and allow players to explore more of Inazuma.

Leaks suggest that Genshin Impact players upgrade the Sacred Sakura Tree up to level 50 and require 25 Electric Seals for each level. While leveling the tree may seem time consuming, it will offer great rewards as players gradually improve it. The rewards include free wishes, Crowns of Insight, Keys to the Shrine of the Depths, Weapon Blocks, and more.

The Sacred Sakura Tree is clearly important in Inazuma, and players should definitely prioritize leveling it up for full access to the nation. However, to get the tree to its maximum level, they may need to collect 1,250 Electric Seals in total.

Thanks to the sacred sakura tree, it can take months to fully explore Inazuma. Genshin Impact players have wanted long-lasting content for a while, and it seems that with the challenges in Inazuma, that’s exactly what they’re getting.
