Genshin Impact 2.2 Leak Reveals New Geo Whelp & Hound Enemy

According to a leak on Honey Impact, courtesy of Wangsheng Funeral Parlor Discord, the new update will be adding four new enemies from the Abyss Order family. They are as follows.

  • Riftstalker Whelp – Geo
  • Riftstalker Whelp – Electro
  • Riftstalker Hound – Geo
  • Riftstalker Hound – Electro

Here is a description of the two enemies.

Riftstalker Whelp– A magical being from another world, possessing the ability to corrode objects. The Riftstalker Whelp‘s attacks inflict the status of “corrosion” on its target. After receiving damage by a corresponding element, the Riftstalker Whelp enters a state of “demonic possession”, and becomes extremely aggressive at the cost of lowered elemental resistance.

Riftstalker Hound– The adult form of the Riftstalker Whelp… or so it should appear. But this magical being does not follow a natural cycle of growth, and its exact development pattern is still a mystery. The Riftstalker Hound‘s attacks inflict the status of “corrosion” on its target. After receiving damage by a corresponding element, the Riftstalker Hound enters a state of “demonic possession”, and becomes extremely aggressive at the cost of lowered elemental resistance.

While fans might be disappointed with the exclusion of Yae from the update, it seems like miHoYo has a lot to offer apart from that as well. There is still tons of time left for the update to drop, so things might change in the future.
