Genshin Impact is the free mobile game taking over my brain. The worldbuilding is complex and I knew that somewhere in there was a theory. I was RIGHT! I think I found the character that BROKE the world of Genshin Impact. You see, the biggest weakness in the world of Teyvat is not what you would expect. What will bring about the END? Watch to find out!

    My point of view against this hypothesis is since the cryo archon has obtained zhongli’s gnosis, the fatui should now be in charge of the mora making. By this sense, Tevyat’s economy should not collapse but now be more advantageous to Snezhyna. I absolutely support the cryo archon so this is great lol

    If venti could be defeated by signira so easily than how did he win a seat amongst the archons? And if a God's power was really based on your people's faith and how much you interacted with them, why was the God of salt so weak? It never clearly states that zhongli was the most powerful of the archons, only the oldest. The only remaining original archon however, is venti. This all proves that Venti wasn't weak, and was most likely strongest at the time of the archon war. If so, this meant that the power system was different back then. How did the way Gods get their power change and why? More importantly, how. Does this mean that the law of the genshin universe is interchangeable? Hahaha------

    Albedo seems like a good guy but has a bad side, do you have a theory on what is going to happen or what he will do? It seems like he doesn’t want to be evil but will become it.

    I mean this theory is cool and all and it might turn out to be true but we are not really 100% sure that only morax can make mora. The tsaritsa might also be able to do it since she now has the geo gnosis. I say this thinking that the golden house is only a glorified central teyvat bank and it is not important in creating mora itself and anyone who wilds geo gnosis can do it. Tell me if i am wrong.

    2:30 no, all of them are greek😂 cryo literally means cold in greek, although it is pronounced more like "creo" hydro and pyro (water and fire) have also their roots in ancient greek (although hydro has also Latin) electro also comes from ancient greek and it used to be the word for alloy or metal (because metal is such s good electricity conductor its name was given to 'electricity') And Gea used to be the ancient Greek Goddess of Earth so here is 'geo' explained too Sorry if I sound too smartypants, for me (when Greek is my native language) realising that they used "tree" in Greek (but in Latin characters) for the word that represents the element of nature was such a cringy and funny moment.
