Leakers leak information about previously unseen area in Liyue and Character Dendro in Genshin Impact may finally make it to version 2.4
It's been a while and we discussed why, until now, there are no characters with dendro visions as characters playable in Genshin Impact and, according to some leaks that are still remembered on the internet, this situation may change from version 2.4 of the game. According to some of the game's most famous leakers, who unfortunately deleted their accounts after the “Real Ghost” leaker was processed by miHoYo.
According to these new reports that have been rescued over the internet, we will finally have two things that players are waiting for. The Cliff (or Abyss before 1.5) in Liyue and a character of the dendro element, in this case possibly the pharmacist Baizhou.
What's coming to the game?
According to the leakers Sukuna e Genshin Report, the cliff should be released with the second or third Genshin Impact update of 2022. If the current schedule, six weeks between each update, remains intact until then, it means that the new map will be added to the game on February 16th or March 30th of 2022.
What is the Cliff?
It is an area that reaches deep underground, located west of the Port of Liyue. There are no official screenshots or artwork of it. However, if you've actually read the dialogue while playing Genshin Impact, you've already learned a little bit about the area. Most notably as it has a “completely different” mood from the rest of Liyue. And as it is a great source of minerals, it is currently sealed off after many mysterious incidents, including miners going crazy.
The other reason players are curious about this area is because it is already on the map and is inaccessible. What made all players curious about the location, even if it is off the map and inaccessible. Overall, the Cliff looks to Liyue what the Dragon's Spine was to Mondstadt: a very large area that isn't a region of Teyvat per se, but is still a lot of fun to explore, with unique tricks and gameplay.

Dendro Character in Genshin Impact May Be Related
As for Baizhu, we know since his first appearance in Closed Beta Test 3 that he is a Dendro character. Seeing his incredibly cool character design and the fact that he plays a huge role in the story, Baizhu is highly likely to be a 5-star character. Yaoyao, another dendro character already officially revealed, should be a 4 star.
At least since April 2021, leaks on Chinese forums have begun to report that the Cliff and a dendro character are related. We don't know how they are actually connected, but the most logical explanation is that there are puzzles based on dendro elements within the area.
Since then, English leakers like Sukuna, who confirm that they have their own sources, have also suggested that Cliff and the dendro element are also linked. Meanwhile, the rumor that the Cliff was already finished, but miHoYo is holding it on purpose to stretch the content has also been disproved.
Lastly, many fans are speculating that Baizhu, as a pharmacist and head of Bubu Pharmacy in Liyue, uses the rare ore found on the Cliff as medicine. If these theories are confirmed, the site would be linked not only in terms of gameplay but also in terms of story to Baizhu. This is possible since miHoYo also suggested that the pharmacist knows a lot about a special ore that appeared in Yanfei's Teapot unlocking mission with Yanfei:
When the Traveler and Yanfei talk to Baizhu about the Jadeita Smaragdus ore, he explains how those without Sights can get sick or have drastic personality changes if they stay in contact with the ore for too long. These symptoms are similar to those described by miners who returned from the Crag.
