Genshin ImpactThe Serenitea Pot’s housing system has been out for some time. After a few fixes, there have been a lot of desirable changes and additions after its rough launch, including significant quality of life improvements. After the release of Raiden Shogun, a huge influx of gamers began to play the game and will certainly encounter the housing feature later in the story. This Serenitea Pot guide will cover the basics and the progression guide, so players can easily navigate through the trusted ranks and have all of the customization options in the palm of their hands.
To get the Pot Serenitea and enter the realms, you have to reach Adventure Rank 30 and complete Archon Liyue’s quest, “A new star is approaching “. Once the conditions are met, the quest “A teapot to call home “ will be available, where Madame Ping gives you the Pot Serenitea as a reward. Once possessed, players will need to deploy the teapot via the gadget inventory and teleport to the realm.
For the first time when entering the Pot Serenitea, you will have to choose one of the three starting realms. The first is the Floating home, a celestial kingdom high in the clouds, where picturesque islands float and are intertwined by runic bridges. The second is the Emerald peak, a kingdom of towering mountain peaks piercing the clouds. Third and last is the Cool island, a kingdom set in the middle of a summer getaway, where a small cluster of lush islands come together. Most of your initial progress will take place in one of these areas, so you’ll need to choose wisely if you think setting is important to your accommodation.
After entering the kingdom of your choice, you will encounter a certain teapot spirit outside your lavish mansion. This creature is called Tubby, and he serves as a butler, who accompanies you throughout your progress in the Serenitea pot. Tubby provides information regarding your Confidence Rank and Follower Energy, while also being the perfect place to craft furniture and shop at the Depot. You can think of Tubby as your, * ahem *, Serenitea Pot guide.
Furnishing are the meat and potatoes of your accommodation. Not only do they turn your initially lifeless realm into a comfortable respite, but new furniture creation is necessary to advance your Confidence Rank. The more furniture you create, the more things you can place and organize, while your progress in the Serenitea pot goes even further. There are all kinds of furniture, from bushes and trees to apartments and windmills. The ways in which you can decorate your kingdom are almost limitless, and all the power is in your hands.
Plans are the keys to crafting new furniture, which speeds up your progress. There are many ways to get blueprints for your teapot. Most of these can be purchased from Tubby, which can be found in the Realm Depot section. You can also get them as a reward from Events, the Teapot Manual, and even Confidence Rank progression.
You can’t just make furniture out of thin air, and as such, you need all kinds of materials to create. Some of the materials can be purchased at the Realm Depot, such as fabric, while others are acquired through craftsmanship, such as some dyes. There are certain minerals that are essential for creating furniture, so be sure to constantly supply them. Finally, strange as it sounds, you might have to start hitting trees every time you see them. Most Teyvat trees now drop a specific amount of wood after hitting them (a few times), and different trees drop different wood. To find out where to find the lumber you need, there is a guide found in the Archive menu at wood pitches.
Companions are an additional feature that allows you to place your possesses characters as NPCs anywhere in your kingdom. While present in the realm, these characters will generate Companion XP through the Realm Bounty, found on the Trust Rank screen. The higher the adeptal energy of your kingdom, the more Companion XP they will generate. Players also have the option to talk to their companions, unlocking new personal dialogues.
The possibilities in your kingdom are endless… Well, almost. Unfortunately we have a Charging system this limits the overall amount of furniture that can be placed. Each piece of furniture takes a certain load, with larger ones like apartments taking more load than small pieces of furniture. Companions and pets carry the most load, and placing them all in one area will limit the amount of other furniture you can place in the same area.
Adeptal Energy and Trust Rank
Our progress in the Pot Serenitea has two important objectives to achieve: higher adeptal energy, and higher trust rank. The plan is simple – we aim to get as much Adept Energy as possible, to generate more Realm Currency. The more Realm Currency we have, the more blueprints we can buy from the Realm Depot. Finally, the more plans we have, the more confidence we can generate in creating new furniture.
The Kingdom deposit is a treasure trove of useful things, but each with its own cost in realm currency.
The Treasures of the Realm provide useful items for upgrading your characters for combat, although these are quite expensive and are only recommended for players with maximum Confidence Rank.
The Furniture section has a dazzling collection of trees, foliage, and stones, but these aren’t worth spending early. There is one exception, which is the Flask of Adept Speed, an item that speeds up furniture production in an instant. This item is restocked daily and is incredibly inexpensive, so it’s ideal to go back to your teapot every day to get it.
Finally, we have Furnishing Plans, which contain a whole host of plans essential to advancing your Confidence Rank. You have to try to empty this store as much as possible to gain maximum confidence.
Once you have already created some furniture, it is time to increase our adept energy. Furniture of greater rarity generates more energy, therefore it is ideal to buy the 4 star furniture first of the deposit of the kingdom. Some 4-star furniture only carries a minor charge, so creating and placing multiple copies allows you to generate a lot of energy for less charge. Some call it Mining energy, but you can call it whatever you want.
For example, you can make many copies of the Pine room divider and place them neatly side by side in an empty room. This furniture supports a low load and takes up little space, but offers a very high adeptal energy per room. If you want to optimize your energy gains, you can definitely consider this strategy.
Itinerant seller and coop
Every Friday through Sunday, a traveling salesman (similar in appearance to Tubby) shows up and offers players pets and field furniture, in exchange for realm currency. Buying from the seller is part of your progress in the Serenitea Pot manual, so don’t miss once it appears during these times. If you have the Battle Pass, purchasing from a friend’s Roaming Vendor provides a lot of Weekly Quest Battle Pass Points.
Speaking of friends, the Serenitea Pot also supports co-op, and other players can request to enter your kingdom, even when you’re not around. If you want a nice place to hang out or need a seat for your group, the Pot Serenitea is a great place to come and meet! Not only that, but you can ask your friends to speed up your furniture productions which is a win-win for all.
Finally, for our Serenitea Pot guide, we’re talking about the most recent addition to the Serenitea Pot – the gardening system. Introduced in Genshin Impact 2.1, the gardening system gives the Serenitea pot much more value and gives players a way to collect resources in a much more consistent way. After completing the quest “The Art of Horticulture” from Madame Ping, players will receive a field to plant seeds and some seeds. More fields and seeds can be purchased from the Realm Depot, so be sure to buy whatever is available. After placing the fields in your kingdom, you can place seeds of plants you want to grow. These seedlings will sprout after 3 days, so be sure to come back by then to harvest your crops. There is a good list of plants to grow, with rarer items like Silk Flowers and Naku Weeds as notable.
Players will also get the Seed Dispensary from the same quest, which is a gadget used to get seeds by collecting certain plants around Teyvat. Note that even without doing Madame Ping’s quest, you can purchase seeds and plots of land in Tubby. However, the only way to get the Seed Dispensary and collect Seeds in the Wild is through this quest.
The Serenitea pot is a popular addition to Genshin Impact, offering players a place to decorate and call home, or even a place to meet friends or other people. With the continuous addition of new features and changes in quality of life, we can assume that this housing system can only improve over time.
