Genshin Impact Player Makes Interesting Discovery About Wet Torches

A Genshin Impact fan makes an interesting discovery about wet torches that become electrically charged while they work on a commission in Inazuma.

Since miHoYo released Genshin Impact in 2020, fans have been discovering hidden details around the open world that makes the action RPG even more immersive. One Genshin Impact fan has made an interesting discovery about the wet torches that dot the landscape of Inazuma.

Reddit user PhaNuocChanh recently posted a Genshin Impact clip of them exploring the large zone of Inazuma near some torches that have been dampened by a downpour of rain. Unlike other areas, torches in Inazuma are regularly wet due to the endless thunderstorm hammering the area which makes it an ideal location to notice a small, yet important detail about the ARPG. Just like Genshin Impact fans have noticed some things draw the attention of lightning, while the rain suddenly stops upon entering Genshin Impact cities, PhaNuocChanh’s video highlights a potentially useful way of using wet torches to defeat enemies.


PhaNuocChanh’s clip begins with the player working on an Inazuma commission as Traveler, approaching and looting a pile of Sunsettia next to a wet torch. Unbeknownst to the Genshin Impact player, this wet torch has been electrically charged by a lightning bolt, and it starts acting like a Tesla coil by striking PhaNuocChanh like many other Genshin Impact fans have been hit by lightning. Before the conclusion of PhaNuocChanh’s Genshin Impact video, the wet torch had fired a bolt of electricity at the player, a level 76 Mitachurl, and a crimson fox that tries in vain to avoid it.

Because of a crimson fox’s death in PhaNuocChanh’s Genshin Impact clip, the player is able to collect multiple pieces of raw meat, which can be used in some of the best Genshin Impact recipes. Each electric shock from the wet torch in PhaNuocChanh’s video does over 1,000 damage which is only a minor inconvenience for the level 90 player with over 16,000 max health. It’s currently unclear how many total bolts of electricity PhaNuocChanh could have handled, but low-level Genshin Impact players may want to avoid wet torches during thunderstorms.

Although there are many bolts of lightning to avoid in Inazuma’s constant thunderstorm, Genshin Impact players may have to be mindful of how close to wet torches they are when nearing death. While some fans have speculated that these Genshin Impact electro effects may be altered or removed with an upcoming update, others have speculated on what other ways torches could be elementally charged. Genshin Impact fans that are trying to replicate the wet torch Tesla coil in PhaNuocChanh’s clip will have the best luck in the same location because of the frequency of lightning in the area versus in other regions.

Genshin Impact is available now for mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
