Genshin Impact Japanese Players Find Out Bug With Zhongli To Move NPCs

Genshin Impact players lucky enough (or whaling enough) to have pulled Zhongli in the gacha can try out a pretty fun bug with NPCs.

December 2, 2020

The best husbando so far Zhongli is finally available in Genshin Impact (PC, PS4, PS5, Mobile, Switch soon), and you can try out a pretty fun bug with him. Using Zhongli’s Elemental Skill Dominus Lapidis, by summoning the pillar right on them, you can push out certain NPCs in the game.

In particular, you can bring out NPCs from behind counters, like Katheryne at the Adventurer’s Guild.

If you don’t aim the pillar properly it’s also possible to only end up moving a certain part of an NPCs’ body, creating graphical bugs.

Many players who were lucky to draw him also noted Zhongli is pretty useful to mine ore. He can destroy any type on ore, even Crystal Ore and Magic Crystal Ore, with one hit of his Elemental Skill:

It’s likely miHoYo will be correcting this bug with Zhongli in Genshin Impact soon. miHoYo is very transparent with patch notes in each update and their gameplay corrections. However, these type of bugs so far in Genshin Impact tend to be silently corrected, so perhaps we won’t get an ingame notice about it.

The Zhongli banner, Gentry of Hermitage, also adds new character Xinyan. Be sure to check our guide about her. Zhongli is incredibly popular in Japan so far, and has been trending on Twitter.

From December 4 to 6, miHoYo will also distribute 800 free Primogems to each Genshin Impact player, to celebrate the game earning multiple awards these past weeks.

The next Genshin Impact major update, version 1.2, is scheduled for December 23. It’ll add the Dragonspine area, new events and characters. For each major update so far, miHoYo held a private Closed Beta Test with a few selected players. Recent leaks from some of these players divulged work in progress content from Ver 1.2, which triggered a bunch of rumors and a lawsuit from miHoYo. Ver 1.3 is scheduled for February 2021. Future updates will add the Inazuma region.
