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!

    i love how u spent hours for this but completely forgot about leylines, which are canon, referenced by azdaha, that are technically an infinite amount of mora...

  • ❀armi•impact❀


  • Seulji

    But the Tsaritsa has the gnosis, can she use the powers of the Geo archon with it? What if to bring everyone under her control she refuses to make more Mora until everyone complies with her.

    it won't be hard for ninguang to come up with a plan for countermeasurment, she's a smart bussinesswoman and she would probably produce new currency if mora will cease to be used, and probably the rest of the nations would do the same. also another question, if the tsaritsa get the other archons gnosises, would she be able to use their powers of sorts, or else why would she go all the trouble to aquire them?

    When your waiting for other theory because there a lot of lore and stories: We have a new city, new stories, and new character that people will simp for.

  • Heneral Luna

    I think they will reduce the value of mora to create more mora just like the romans did. Clipping coins (cutting a part of the coin) and minting them to create new coins. But if they did that, hyperinflation will happen.

  • Expert Cynos

    it will be cool if somewhere in future pvp is launched in different dimension where mora and all in limited cause of zhongli and it will be based more on skill that way

  • cobalt

    morax could just allow automation or human fabrication of mora with some kind of machine or device.

  • GlazedPotatoes

    Can't another geo archon just rise through the help of adepti, because people with visions are given the ability to ascend to godhood right?

    Inazuma : We heard Electro archon : BUT SINCE THATS SO THIS IS STILL THE LAND OF ENERITY SO NOW WE HAVE CRYSTAL MARROW Also since the Taristia are making moves on the gnosis, she knows the outcome so theoretically the flames of Tay vat are getting near.

    Im late but hear me out. Szneznya is trying to become the sole superpower in Teyvat and will use Zhonglis gnosis to mint their own tender.

  • Emesca

    my theories are: 1) snezhnaya will use the gnosis to take control of the economy and take over liyue and give all of her army visions (since her goal is world domination to achieve peace) 2)the tsaritsa is somehow affiliated to the sibling and is giving them the gnosis against the power to dominate the world (that would be an explaination as to why the sibling will have the seven elements when we will fight against them)

  • Ti-lee Chan
    Ti-lee Chan

    Sir what do you think of the happenings in Inazuma?

  • Feanx

    Food for thought: In the game itself they have said that when the Geo God died a new one would take place. Maybe they'll make the mora?

    He he…funny how u think he can just get his gnosis back from Theresa

    okay but just like how venti and zhongli were the only original archons, the other archons took on the role of archons after the original died. so a new geo archon will come eventually, right?

    If he didn’t sell his gnosis the fatui would steal it anyways also what about mora ley lines

    WHat about leylines.....

  • BlazeSorcerer25

    Technically the Fatui have the Gnosis that makes him create Mora but I don't know what the Tsaritsa would do with it.

  • themadstudent

    This is a fun analysis, but perhaps Matpat should look up what "catalyst" means.


    I smell communism

    Maybe the Tsaritsa needed his gnosis because of the incredibly high salary you get for being a fatui agent. She needs to pay her employees YK

    I never expected game theory to talk about genshin impact


    we have a thing called ley lines

  • Poofeee

    Odds on this video making mihoyo change the script

  • SakuraSensations

    Anybody else a slight bit annoyed that he called it, “Tay-vat,” instead of, “Teh-vat”?

    • Ghostyy

    well thats deep

  • simplysxftie

    personally zhongli is my favorite archon and character (other than tartaglia) because i like his character development and i like the way he chose to rule over liyue, yes he faked his death but he had a reason to do that. his contract to end all contracts was very interesting, and how he offered his gnosis.

    In terms of primogems WE HAVE primogems But In terms of Mora We HAVE NO MORA. WHAT KIND OF LOGIC IS THAT ZHONGLI >:(

  • Lily Lu
    Lily Lu

    Okay okay. First of all, why would zhongli give the cryo archon the leader of the fatui SPECIFICALLY his gnosis. Maybe sooner in the game when mora do become a rare resource then that’s probably when the cryo archon is going to convince everyone to join the fatui or have nothing against them and they can get mora. Zhongli said that the contract to give the cryo archon his gnosis was a contract to end all contracts so what does that mean?

    Wait but, the gnosis still exists. La Signora retreaved for the Tsaritsa, so can't she just make mora now?

  • Disco Man On Roblox

    This video got me into Genshin

  • qtube

    The ending of the liyue story quest shows us that Signora got Zhongli's gnosis, so could it be that the fatui would come out of nowhere with the mora making powers and trade them for useful items

  • Mei Desuwa
    Mei Desuwa

    But surely they can use something other than mora for all that stuff right?

  • AdityaTheGamer

    Everybody be like: but matpat leylines

  • Tamaki chan

    You know there could arise a new geo archon like ninnguang she can become the new geo archon and mint more mora she is extremely powerful

    I have 9 billion 546 million 435 thousand and 57 mora so I think I'm safe

  • kevin ong
    kevin ong

    This one is kind of interesting to me, because the ability to produce mora still exists. Zhongli didn’t say you need his power to create mora, you need the Geo Archon’s power. Which, of course, is contained in the Geo gnosis. Which still very much exists in the hands of the Fatui Harbingers. Of course, the goals of the Fatui are very confusing, but the economy may be not as doomed as it might initially seem.

  • doger

    he forgot about a contract that he made

    10:06 just was not right dude if you can’t say it correctly you are not allowed to make a another genshin video

  • The Tactician

    One thing to add to the theory is that this isn’t a permanent problem. Mora comes from the Geo archons power. The power that the Tsaritsa, the goddess of ice now has. Also theoretically nothin is stopping Liyue from minting their own currency something Morax was preparing the Adepti and Liyue Government. Morax was attempting to make humans self sufficient and he said they passed so. I think it possible Liyue will be able to change that. Especially as Liyue has an major influx of ore from their giant mine “The Chasm”.
