“Genshin Impact takes place on the world of Teyvat, which is divided into several nations and regions. Currently, there are two nations within the game that the player can visit: Mondstadt and Liyue. Mondstadt, known as the city of freedom, worships Barbatos, the wind archon and sits on an island in the middle of a lake. Mondstadt’s region occupies the northeastern half of the map, and in the southeastern half of the map lies the nation of Liyue, which worships the geo archon Rex Lapis and is the largest market harbor in Teyvat. Each nation takes inspiration from a real world region, incorporating regional aesthetics. Mondstadt uses central European influences, while Liyue uses many common Chinese elements, such as the Stone Forest.”
