Genshin Impact: Reputation System

More information about the Reputation System in Genshin Impact 1.1 has been revealed.

With Genshin Impact 1.1 update right around the corner, miHoYo is starting to release more information as the day's drawdown. At a livestream, they have posted some new information that was not mentioned in the previous livesteam focused on the release date for 1.1. Here is all the information we know from the livestream!

Reputation System

The Reputation System is going to be a vital mechanic in Genshin Impact, as many quality of life items are locked behind this system - such as the Portable Waypoint. However, any progress that you have made towards this system will automatically unlock based on what you've done, so there is no need to panic!

The Reputation System will unlock when you reach Adventure Rank 25, and you must have completed the Archon Quest storyline to gain access to this new system.  In Mondstadt, you speak to Hertha, a Knights of Favonius Coordinator, and in Liyue, you speak to Ms. Yu, the Minister of Civil Affairs Secretary to access the Reputation System.

To increase your reputation, you basically carry on what you've been doing before this system even existed; however, they are some new features being added to help you.

  • Complete quests in Mondstadt and Liyue.
    • Mondstadt - Archon quest ''The Outlander Who Caught the Wind' Prologue: Act I
    • Liyue - Farewell, Archaic Lord' Chapter I: Act II

Portable Waypoint

At Reputation Lv. 6 in Mondstadt - you'll unlock the Portable Waypoint blueprint. This Portable Waypoint creates a temporary Waypoint anywhere. This is going to be very handy when farming a certain material or even for Elite Boss locations.

  • Portable Waypoint
    •  Features
      • Last for 7 days.
      • Portable Waypoint marker will appear on the map.
      • Creating a new Waypoint will destroy your last-created waypoint.
      • Has a 60second cooldown

Condensed Resin

Condensed Resin will be unlocked when you reach Reputation Lvl 3 in Liyue. When Lvl 3 has been obtained, you are given the Condensed Resin blueprint. If Condensed Resin is used for an Abyss Domain, instead of only getting 1 set of rewards like normal, you'll actually receive 2 sets of rewards; however, you can only hold 3 Condensed Resin.

This means that you can have more uses of Resin to use and so you never have to always use your main source of 120 Original Resin, even though they are changing how Original Resin works in 1.1.

Resonance Stones

The Resonance Stones on use will highlight a small circular area of the map. This gives you the location of a hidden Oculi in that area. Use this in conjunction with the mini-map to track down any remaining Oculi. As there are two Resonance Stones, an Anemo and a Geo, this means that only a stone will only work in the correct region. The Anemo Stone will work in Mondstadt, and the Geo will work in Liyue.

NRE (Menu 30)

This allows you to equip two food dishes to a hotkey so that you can press it during battle to eat without having to go to any menu. However, the NRE can only hold one HP regain food dish and one Revival food dish at a time. However, you can change it easily when good dishes are starting to become scarce.

Wind Catcher

The Wind Catcher allows you to store five Anemograma into it, allowing users to create a wind tunnel to quickly access high places. The wind upward drift will not last for a long period of time. After every use, the Wind Catcher has a 300-second cooldown.

Adepti Seeker's Stone

The Adepti Seeker's Stove summons a portable stove to allow you to cook food no matter where you are. This saves you the effort of having to travel to a campfire in order to cook food.

Treasure Compass

The Treasure Compass allows you to located hidden treasures you have no found in a certain region. As there are two Treasure Compasses, you have to use a specific one for each region. The Anemo Compass for Mondstadt and the Geo Compass for Liyue. When the Compass will point you in the direction of the nearest unfound chest. If one is found is Compass will enter a 30-second cooldown; if one isn't found, the Compass will only enter a 5-second cooldown.


Some Namecards can be unlocked when you hit specific reputation levels; the feedback miHoYo reached from their in-game survey must have meant people wanted Namecards! In both regions at levels 4 and 7, you will be given Namecards!

  • Mondstadt Reputation Lv. 4 - "Mondstadt - Hero's Fame"
  • Mondstadt Reputation Lv. 7 - "Mondstadt - Blessing"
  • Liyue Reputation Lv. 4 - "Liyue - A Thousand Ships"
  • Liyue Reputation Lv. 7 - "Liyue - In the Clouds"

Very much like the Namecards, at certain reputation levels, players will be awarded with new recipes to cook, and both regions will have exclusive recipes to unlock.

  • Mondstadt Reputation Lv. 1 - Northern Apple Stew Mondstadt
  • Mondstadt Reputation Lv. 4 - Adventurer's Breakfast Sandwich
  • Mondstadt Reputation Lv. 7 - Moon Pie
  • Liyue Reputation Lv. 1 - Golden Shrimp Balls
  • Liyue Reputation Lv. 4 - Lotus Flower Crisp
  • Liyue Reputation Lv. 7 - Tianshu Meat

Wind Glider Skin

By reaching Reputation Level 8 in both regions Mondstadt and Liyue, you will be awarded a stylized Wind Glider, Wings of Golden Flight. However, in Mondstadt you'll get the blue variant, instead of the golden.

Exploration Progress System

With this new Exploration Progression system, you're able to view the Exploration Progress on the map. The highest the percentage, the closer you are to finishing off that area completely. To increase the percentage, you do so by opening chests, finding Elemental Oculi, unlocking Waypoints, and other exploration activities to increase your Exploration Progress in each area. So pretty much play the game, and this new system will inform you how much more you have to find to 100% an area.
