Genshin Impact 1.5 rumors might be focused on the game’s rumored new characters, Eula and Yanfei, but there’s another line of rumors pointing to Zhongli’s story quests and a powerful new foe.
It’s yet another source to spend your Original Resin on, but with ties to Zhongli’s story quests and likely some sweet loot in store, it seems like a worthwhile Resin sink.
As always with Genshin Impact leaks and rumors, nothing is confirmed until miHoYo officially reveals it.
And with Genshin Impact 1.4 only just having begun on March 17, that reveal is likely to be a way off from now.

Genshin Impact 1.5 may continue Zhongli's story with this powerful boss fight
Azhdaha is Genshin Impact 1.5’s new monster, or at least one of them.
It’s a mythical beast with ties to Liyue and Geo Elemental powers, though so far in Genshin Impact, Azhdaha only appears in legends and gets a brief mention in the Trails in Tiangiu quest.
In 1.5, it seems Azhdaha is much more than a legend and poses a serious threat of some kind.
Quest text from before the Azhdaha battle shows Zhongli speaking with Azhdaha and condemning its use of a child as a power source.
The Azhdaha battle is a more challenging fight than most, if the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor Discord has its facts correct.
Despite the creature’s connections with Geo, Azhdaha reportedly enters battle with two elements, and its affinities change each time you challenge it.
It’s also incredibly powerful and capable of downing weaker characters with just one hit, though there’s plenty of time for miHoYo to adjust its power levels between now and Genshin Impact 1.5’s launch.
