The Genshin Impact Sumeru update is rumored to be released alongside the 3.0 update, which will likely go live on August 24, 2022. This means players have a while to wait before they can begin trekking through the new region.

  • Element: Dendro
  • Weapon: Unknown

First up is the Dendro Archon, Nahida. This upcoming character is known as the Flower Archon and is the youngest among The Seven. According to the leaker, Nahida’s attire is similar to that of Paimon’s clothing and features white and grey hair. 

While we don’t know anything about her Elemental Skill and Burst, a reference image has begun to circulate online, giving Travelers an early indication of how she could potentially look upon release. 


  • Element: Dendro
  • Weapon: Bow

Collei made her first appearance in the official Genshin Impact manga, and since then, Travelers have been wondering when she’ll make her appearance. Unlike other characters in the game, the 4-star character wasn’t born with any special abilities. In fact, the green-haired girl has special powers that allow her to summon powerful magical abilities.

According to community leaks, Collei’s Elemental skill deals Dendro damage, which sees a boomerang being deployed that damages foes as it returns. During her elemental burst, she will throw a small mechanical cat sidekick that deals Dendro AoE damage when it explodes. 

Collei’s passive talent is reported to be the same as Amber’s — decreasing glide stamina for all party members by 20%. Footage of Collei gameplay was recently leaked on Reddit, showing her abilities in action.

Twitter user @Genshin_Mains has also shared some leaked Collei videos. You can check out the footage of her in action below:

Renowned Genshin Impact leaker, SaveYourPrimos, has described Tighnari as having a short male model that features a “big ol’ fluffy tail.” UBatcha notes that Tighnari also wields a bow and uses the Dendro element to eliminate his foes. 

The translated description from Callanthe also notes that the 5-star character’s hair is “dark, short, and straight, with two lime green stripes in his bangs. He is apparently an expert botanist.”

During Tighnari’s elemental skill he will throw an object that deals ranged AoE Dendro damage, and generates a field where enemies enter a state of ‘chaos’. Footage of Tighnari in action was recently leaked on Reddit and Twitter.
