The Genshin Impact developers have detailed some of the quality of life improvements made for the upcoming update 4.3 and they look absolutely magnificent.

Starting with version 4.3, players will be able to claim the item rewards for daily expeditions and then send out the same character to the same expedition again with just a single click – yes, no more searching through your ever-growing list of characters just to find and assign the wanted figure to their task again. This has been the standard in the daily expedition equivalent found in Honkai: Star Rail and it’s incredible news that HoYoverse finally implemented this feature in its open-world RPG as well.

In a similar vein, you’ll be able to claim items crafted at the forge or processed ingredients at the alchemy bench with a single click. You can add multiple artifacts in batches with a single click when performing Mystic Offerings as well. In the future, this quality of life improvement will come to furnishings in your teapot as well, but this isn’t quite ready yet, it seems.

HoYoverse wants to save you even more clicking, though: Artifact management will be optimized as well and once again the Relic management from Honkai: Star Rail seems to be the example. A multitude of filters will be added so that players can search their inventory for pieces carrying specific stats. There’ll be a mass lock and unlock functionality as well, allowing players to quickly change the status of a mass of items with two clicks.

But wait: There’s more! The enhancement process of characters, artifacts, and weapons has been greatly improved as well for update 4.3. You can auto-add XP materials to upgrade your characters until they reach the next Ascension limit. Artifacts, too, can be auto-upgraded until they reach the next tier – those tiers will be levels 4, 8, 12, and 16. If you want to manually upgrade something, then you can now add up to 15 materials at once. For weapon upgrades you’ll be able to add up to 40 materials at once as well as select several items when refining weapons – Honkai: Star Rail sends its regards again.

Some smaller, but still very neat, changes await you as well: The Archon Quest “Requiem of the Echoing Depths” has been uncoupled from the World Quest happening in The Chasm to make it easier for newer players to progress through the story. After exiting a Domain your party will now spawn closer to the entry, allowing you to immediately challenge it again – a nice improvement to make farming easier. You’ll also be able to find respawn timers for bosses when clicking on their locations on the map now.

We’ll get to hear more on these changes during the upcoming Genshin Impact 4.3 livestream, but this update is already shaping up to be a beautiful Christmas gift.
