The Story Behind The Chasm Genshin Impact
The Chasm Genshin Impact was released as a giant mining area and has become a major source of precious stones and metal ores (ore) in Liyue.
One of The Blackliff's 4 Star weapon series that is in the Shop "Paimon's Bargain" every month is also said to be made with materials originating from The Chasm.
But recently, some mysterious accidents occurred at The Chasm causing the entire area to be closed down. Automatically this makes the workers lose their jobs for a while.
The history of The Chasm begins around 6000 years ago. a giant meteorite hit the barren plains west of Liyue. This plain turned into a large and deep abyss, therefore it is called The Chasm.
The falling meteorite turned the area into a rich mineral rock and was used as a mining resource by the Liyue people.
Massive mining exploitation makes the environment in The Chasm worse. Erosion occurred and caused Azhdaha, a mythological creature that guards the area of wrath and there was a war with the Geo Archon.
Since then the remnants of the war have been uninhabited and many incidents followed at The Chasm which caused the mine to close. When this area is opened you can find various stories and the real reasons for this event.
The Chasm Release Date
Live stream special program 2.5 previously said The Chasm was released by Genshin Impact on updates upcoming 2.6. Updates this will be updates waiting for after updates This 2.5 February 2022.
The release of The Chasm was speculated as an opening playable character with the previously unreleased element that is Dendro.
Rumors are circulating that dendro characters, such as Yaoyao and Baizhu, will come out with The Chasm. But para leaker said the element would be released when another region, namely Sumeru, was on update 3.0
The addition of the Dendro element in Sumeru makes more sense because Sumeru is an area protected by Archon Dendro.
Esther, one of the NPCs that can be found in Dragonspine said The Chasm has a completely different climate from Liyue.
The Chasm is expected to have a climate-modifying temperature-like mechanic Sheer Cold on Dragonspine or Balethunder on Yashiori Island, Inazuma.
If referring to The Chasm is a mine, maybe the climate will be hot or have low oxygen pressure like a real life mine.

The surroundings were filled with plants that gave off light besides a lot of mineral stones
