Genshin Impact’s massive 1.1 update is bringing lots of new content for fans to enjoy, but one of the most highly-anticipated features is the addition of the Reputation system. 

Genshin Impact’s upcoming 1.1 update not only brings plenty of new characters, weapons, items, and quality of life changes, it also aims to shake-up how players interact with the world around them. One of these new interactive features is that of the Reputation system. Finally, Genshin Impact fans can truly immerse themselves Teyvat’s many regions and reap the rewards for doing so. 

We’ve known about this upcoming feature since details surrounding the 1.1 update leaked online, but now miHoYo has provided some official info ahead of the update’s November 11th release. Here’s everything you need to know about Genshin Impact’s Reputation system and how you can increase it. 

What is Reputation?

Having more activities to do is never a bad thing in Genshin Impact.

As the name suggests, Reputation is how you are viewed by the citizens of Genshin Impact’s various regions. In version 1.1, miHoYo are introducing a wave of interactable NPCs. These NPCs will give you requests that you can choose to complete in order to raise your Reputation Level. 

Completing these tasks will also give you access to a variety of different rewards. These range from gadget blueprints, special city features, namecards, recipes, wind gliders, and more. 

How to unlock Reputation

As of writing, Reputation is currently divided into Mondstadt Reputation and Liyue Reputation. MiHoYo will likely add more regions as the game gradually expands and unlocks more areas of the map. 

Before you go speaking to every interactable NPC in Genshin Impact, you’ll need to first meet the following requirements:

  1. Reach Adventure Rank 25 or above.
  2. Complete the archon quest “The Outlander Who Caught the Wind” Prologue: Act I. This will give you access to Mondstadt Reputation. 
  3. Complete the archon quest “Farewell, Archaic Lord” Chapter I: Act II. This will give you access to Liyue Reputation.

After unlocking both the Mondstadt Reputation, you’ll be able to check your Reputation by talking to Knights of Favonius Coordinator, Hertha. Meanwhile, if you wish to check your Liyue Reputation, you’ll need to head talk to the Ministry of Civil Affairs Secretary, Ms. Yu.

How to Increase Reputation

You can increase your Reputation Level by doing a variety of region-specific requests, so make sure you use the four points outlined below:

  1. Region Quests: Complete various quests in Mondstadt and Liyue to increase your Reputation in each city.
  2. World Exploration: Open chests, find Elemental Oculi, unlock Waypoints, and complete other exploration activities in the Liyue and Mondstadt regions to increase your Exploration Progress in each region.
  3. Bounties: Hunt down and defeat the bounty targets to increase your Reputation in that city. The list of bounties will be refreshed every Monday. Each week you can complete up to three bounties in total across all cities.
  4. Requests: Complete requests from the local residents to increase your Reputation in that city. The list of requests will be refreshed every Monday. Each week you can complete up to three requests in total across all cities.

There you have it, all the ways you can increase your Reputation in Genshin Impact’s 1.1 update. If you want to level up the rest of your Genshin Impact gameplay, then be sure to check out our other tips guides.


Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
