Chiori takes centre stage in the Genshin Impact Version 4.5 update, with her debut banner, and the first chapter of her Story Quest now live! Players were captivated by her no-nonsense personality and intriguing background during her initial appearance in Version 4.3's Fontinalia Film Festival.

It is important to note that Story Keys are not awarded automatically once the required eight daily commissions are complete. Genshin Impact players must actively go and redeem them from the “Story Quest” page in the “Quests” tab.
