You are eligible for this compensation if you get to Adventurer Rank 5 before the maintenance begins.
So, what can you expect to see in this new update? Quite a lot, as it turns out.

For one, you’ll get to explore the new island in Inazuma called Tsurumi Island. When the Genshin Impact 2.2 release date and time roll around, you’ll also get access to a new four-star character, the pole-arm-toting Pyro called Thoma. Then, there’s also the new domain, Moshiri Kara, which is a mansion set up somewhere outside the Sea of Fog.
Next on the docket are the new weapons you’ll be able to get. They are Polar Star (5-Star Bow), Akuoumaru (4-Star Claymore), Wavebreaker’s Fin (4-Star Polearm), and Mouun’s Moon (4-Star Bow). Last, but not least, there’s the “Labyrinth Warriors” event and a ton of new quests and Hangout events. So, there’s really a lot to sink your teeth into. Just keep in mind that you need to be Adventure Rank 30 or above and complete the Archon Quest “Chapter II: Act III – Omnipresence Over Mortals” in order to access all this new content.
