Dragonspine is a frosty land, ill-suited to the Traveler rather light clothing. While exploring the region, a new sheer cold meter will continue to fill. When full, it’ll deplete your health at a rapid rate.
Naturally, you want to avoid this, so there are a few ways to warm up. Sources of fire, like torches and campfires are an obvious choice, though even things like teleport waypoints can warm you up in a pinch. Some newly added collectable items and gadgets will also work as a heat source if needed.
It’s interesting to see Genshin Impact include a system like this, as exploration in the initial areas was generally quite laid back. If we look other games with systems like this — including a certain one that Genshin is often compared to — some sort of extreme heat mechanic will probably appear in a future area as well.
Dragonspire arrives as part of Genshin Impact’s Version 1.2 update, titled ‘The Chalk Prince and the Dragon’, on December 23.
