Memory of Dust – Genshin Impact 1.1 Update

Genshin Impact Update & Memory of Dust Sword

The latest Genshin Impact Update 1.1 is about to go live and with it, just like with every other update, a whole bunch of new content has been added to the game, as well as some quality of life changes.

Since every update requires that the game servers go down for a few hours, the developers of Genshin Impact have decided to compensate all players who are Adventure level 5 and above with 300 Primogems.

With that being said, let’s take a look at what awaits us in the Genshin Impact 1.1 update. 

New Weapons

With the 1.1 update, a few new weapons have been added to the game and the first weapon which was featured in a banner and that many are excited for is a 5-Star Catalyst Memory of Dust.

At the time of writing this, not much is known about this weapon other than the official description: “A stone dumbbell containing distant memories.

Its endless transformations reveal the power within.”.

It is likely that we will learn more once the update goes live, so we will keep you updated as new information is revealed.

Alongside the Memory of Dust, three more weapons have been introduced, the Vortex Vanquisher which is a 5-Star Polearm, a 5-Star Claymore called The Unforged as well as a 4-Star Polearm called the Royal Spear.
