Genshin Impact 2.7 will be adding a lot of new content into the free-to-play RPG when the update arrives on May 31. Understandably, a lot of the focus is on the new playable characters – Yelan and Kuki Shinobu – as well as some of the new events. However, the best new features being added to Genshin Impact 2.7 are some much-needed quality-of-life improvements.
Although Genshin Impact 2.7 was delayed by almost a full month, the newest update will soon introduce new characters, feature Banner reruns for Xiao and Arataki Itto, have new weapons, and add more Hangout Events – and this is only to name some of what\’s arriving in Version 2.7. Despite the unprecedented delay, it looks as if the 2.7 update will have plenty of content. And while a lot of attention has been on its new characters, the best new features might just be the fact that Genshin Impact is finally adding Talent and Artifact recommendations.

Talent and Artifact recommendations may not be as flashy as characters like Yelan and Kuki Shinobu becoming playable, but it\’s a nice step forward for Genshin Impact. Each update adds more characters, which means more Talents. And each update also almost always adds new Artifacts, meaning it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with them all – especially now that Genshin Impact has been out for nearly two years.
Talent & Artifact Recommendations Are A Huge Help In Genshin Impact
Equipping Artifacts on a character is a major part of Genshin Impact, and knowing which Artifacts work best is vital. Typically, when a new character is introduced it\’s easy to learn which Artifacts to equip on them. This is because new characters generate a lot of buzz, so fans and sites cover them and their Artifacts extensively. However, as time goes on and more Artifacts are added, players may not realize that newer, better choices are in the game now.
Upgrading Artifacts in Genshin Impact can be quite an investment, especially over time, so knowing which Artifacts work best with a character keeps players from wasting their time and materials. Since Genshin Impact 2.7 is adding in recommendations for Artifacts and Talents, this should make it much easier to know what to aim for – and what to invest in. As the amount of Talents – and especially Artifacts – grow unwieldy, adding recommendations as a QoL improvement is great.
It\’s been impressive how often Genshin Impact adds these little improvements over time that can make the game so much more enjoyable. New characters and events in Version 2.7 are always nice, of course, but without meaningful QoL improvements, a live service game can often suffer – and even be abandoned by its players. While not as flashy as some of the other content coming to the update, the best part of Genshin Impact 2.7 might just be the new Talent and Artifact recommendations.
