Serenitea Pot System which allows players to create their own homes.

Housing, also known as the Serenitea Pot System, is a system that allows players to create their own homes. For those who are super zealous about building their dream estate and become virtual homeowners of Teyvat, this is the perfect activity for you.

Genshin Impact Serenitea Pot
Players need to track down Madame Ping to acquire the Serenitea Pot.

Inside this mystical floating teapot is the charming teapot spirit named Tubby. She is an NPC and talking to her will grant you access to Trust Rank, create furnishing, and guide you with other features of housing. There’s a whole new realm from within that you can own once you’ve acquired the teapot from Madame Ping, another NPC located in Liyue Harbor.

Genshin Impact House
You can start building your home when you obtain the Serenitea Pot.

Additionally, you can unlock and craft new furniture, place them inside your realm, and decorate your home as you please. Doing so will upgrade your Trust Rank and Adeptal Energy, and will help generate extra Realm Currency to trade for new blueprints and furnishings.

Creating Furniture

To craft furniture, you need to have Furnishing Blueprints which are obtained from participating in events, increasing your Trust Rank and others. Once you have them, you need to collect materials. Materials are available all around Teyvat and can be obtained in may ways.

You can also request to visit your friend’s Serenitea Pot in Co-op Mode to show off each other’s creations. The Serenitea Pot is a wonderful gadget to help you relax and do some design work if you want to steer clear from the day’s action.
