Resin is a massive mechanic in Genshin Impact, as it allows you to acquire rewards for spending it after killing a weekly boss, but your supplies are limited. Players have been wanting changes made and/or adding some extra Resin to be used. As an answer, Transient Resin is coming.
What is Transient Resin and what does it do?
Transient Resin is a new type of Resin added in the Genshin Impact 1.5 beta. This Resin can be used to replenish 60 Original Resin, but only once per Transient Resin. But this has to be used quickly, as once acquired, it will disappear after an allotted period of time.
The allotted time that it will dissipate is as follows. Transient Resin has a seven-day lifespan, but the seven-day period starts from the Monday after this item is obtained. Basically, you have seven days plus additional days depending on what day of the week the Resin was purchased the week before.
So if you bought the Transient Resin on a Monday, you would have two weeks before it will expire. Each day after will minus one day from the total—purchase it on Sunday, you only have eight days total.
Each Transient Resin is counted independently, so their expiration dates will all be different. They will not all expire at once if you miss one usage from the three you have in your inventory.
How to Get Transient Resin
Transient Resin is only purchasable from the Homeworld shop, but only once you have reached Homeworld Rank Six. You can only purchase one a week, and it will cost 1200 Realm Currency.
This new Homeworld shop is part of the new building mechanic coming in 1.5. This allows you to build a bass/home in another dimension and decorate it, and many other features.
This new feature will also have its own currency called Realm Currency. This what you will be spending to obtain furniture and the like.
How to increase your rank is currently not known.
Remember, this is information from the 1.5 beta, so information is subject to change or may not even be available at all.
Here is the full in-game item description courtesy of Project Celestia:
Pure energy that will dissipate with time. In this, it is similar to all else that is lovely in this world. But seize this opportunity and go make the world a slightly better place, as is fitting for one who dwells within the bounds of "time".
