New 4-star weapon blueprints have been added to Genshin Impact and are unlocked by completing various quests in Dragonspine.

Frostbearing Tree and Crimson Agate
The Frostbearing Tree is similar to the Statues of the Seven in Monstadt and Liyue. You can collect Crimson Agates hidden around the map and turn them into the Frostbearing Tree for rewards. Some of these rewards include Mora, Wishes, and crafting materials. There are 79 Crimson Agates to collect in total.
Puzzles and plenty of chests
Dragonspine has added plenty of new world puzzles for you to find and solve. One of the major puzzles is finding 8 stone tablets around the mountain. This opens a door to a secret chamber. Along with all these secret puzzles, Dragonspine also has tons of new chests for players to find.
