Ice Climbers

  • The Ice Climbers have middling stats, and they struggle to recover if you knock one of them off the screen.

King Dedede

We absolutely love Genshin Impact’s brand new Serenitea Pot feature. Not only does it allow you to communicate and build a friendship with an adorable, penguin-Esque tea spirit named Tubby, it also lets you create a customized sanctuary in three gorgeous, unique settings.

If you need a little help getting started, our Genshin Impact Serenitea Pot guide is here to help. Whether you need help tracking down that pesky teapot traveling salesman, want to know how to build furniture, or are on the lookout for some more blueprints, we’ve got a little something for everyone.

To learn more about everything going on in Teyvat, take a look at our Genshin Impact update guide, Genshin Impact tier list, and Genshin Impact codes list. You can also stay in the know about upcoming characters by keeping your eye on our Genshin Impact Kazuha, Genshin Impact Yae Sakura, and Genshin Impact Dainsleif guides.


To unlock the Serenitea Pot, you must first reach Adventure Rank 35 and complete the Archon Quest known as Chapter I: Act III – ‘A New Star Approaches’. Once those prerequisites are met, speak to Madame Ping in Liyue and accept the ‘A Teapot to Call Home’ quest.

Once you have completed the quest, you’ll unlock the Serenitea Pot!

Traveler with the Serenitea pot


Using the Serenitea Pot is easy; simply follow the instructions below.

  • Open your inventory
  • Press the gadget tab
  • Click on the Serenitea Pot to summon it!

To leave your realm, simply summon the Serenitea Pot again.


There are three themes to choose from when you first enter your realm. It doesn’t matter which setting you choose, so pick the one you vibe with the most.

  • Cool Isle: an island cluster surrounded by water
  • Emerald Peak: a cloud-piercing mountain peak
  • Floating Abode: an island cluster suspended in mid-air


You can obtain different kinds of furniture by crafting them from blueprints or purchasing them directly from the housing system shop. Furnishings range from beds, cabinets, and lighting to pets, plants, and fountains.

To craft furniture, you need to gather the materials listed on your blueprint. Once you have everything you need, speak to Tubby to begin crafting. We recommend taking a look at our Genshin Impact wood guide if you need some extra materials.


You can purchase blueprints from Tubby or Chubby. If you want rarer furnishings, Chubby is the one to speak to; however, he only shows up in the Serenitea Pot on weekends.

To find secret, expensive blueprints, speak to Goth near the Knights of Favonius HQ in Mondstadt or Master Lu near the water mill in Qingce Village. Both men only appear between 08:00-17:00 in-game time.

A view from above the housing


If you love Tubby as much as we do, you’re going to want to raise your Serenitea Pot trust rank. To build trust, simply craft and claim as much furniture as possible. Raising the Serenitea Pot trust rank is worth doing, as Tubby will reward you with items such as the highly sought-after primogem.


Chubby is the teapot traveling salesman. He can be found in your realm between 04:00 Friday till 04:00 Monday (based on your server’s time zone). Make sure you visit a friend’s realm during this time, as every teapot traveling salesman sells different items.
