Genshin Impact Version 3.0 trailer & livestream

Sumeru has been long teased by HoYoverse, but players were given a proper look during the Genshin Impact Version 3.0 livestream on August 14, 2022.

You can rewatch the launch trailer below.

What’s new in Genshin Impact Version 3.0?

Dendro nation Sumeru finally releases

Genshin Impact players can now finally explore Sumeru, the game’s fourth region, in Version 3.0.

The region is renowned for its vast wealth of knowledge and houses the Sumeru Academia. However it’s arguably its lush landscapes that’ll captivate players at first glance.

“Sumeru is rather different from the major versions we’ve seen in the past. It is divided into two large parts: the rainforest, and the desert,” environmental artist Jax Huang described. “The landscape of the rainforest gives the impression of endless mountains.

“In comparison to the pillars of Liyue and Inazuma’s rugged and strong environment, the mountains and rocks of Sumeru are more in line with the tropical and humid region.”

The Sumeru region will include both desert and rainforest landscapes.

Among the various climates there are a variety of new monsters: Shroom-kin, Fungi, and the Jadeplume Terrorshroom and Electro Regisvine bosses.

A new force called The Eremites are also here, described as mercenaries who are “settlers from an ancient civilization in the desert. They are not part of any nation’s forces, but make a living with their own wisdom and strength.”

Three new characters: Tighnari, Collei, Dori

With the new region, three new characters are joining the fray in Genshin Impact Version 3.0: Tighnari, Collei, and Dori.

Two of them, Tighnari and Collei, are the game’s first Dendro characters, wielding the seventh element players have been long waiting for. The pair of archers — the former five-star, the latter just four-star — are a premier duo, enabling plenty of Dendro reactions with their AOE skills.

Dori is also joining on as a four-star Electro Claymore user who uses their Spirit-Warding Lamp to keep enemies at bay while also healing allies and providing an energy boost.

Tighnari & Zhongli headline banners

Tighnari and Zhongli are the five-star characters headlining the banners in Genshin Impact Version 3.0 — at least in the first phase. Collei will be available in both banners for players eager to roll with rate up, along with Fischl and Diona.

Dori will make her debut in the second phase of the patch on September 9. The Electro Claymore user will be available in both Ganyu and Kokomi’s upcoming rerun banners.

Zhongli is getting another re-run in Genshin Impact Version 3.0.

New Dendro element: Elemental Reactions, more

With Dendro characters now being introduced, HoYoverse are expanding on the Dendro reactions in Genshin Impact Version 3.0. The Dendro element can trigger two different basic reactions: Bloom (Hydro) and Catalyze (Electro).

Bloom causes a Dendro Core to appear, dealing AOE Dendro damage after a short while. However if these cores come into contact with Pyro or Electro, it’ll trigger Burgeon and Hyperbloom respectively, causing even greater damage. This is also, realistically, the game’s first three-element reaction.

Catalyze causes the Quicken reaction to occur, which aggravates enemies and also increases the amount of damage they take from all sources.

Dendro characters like Collei have a few Elemental Reactions up their sleeve.

Graven Innocence event: Get a free Collei

To kick off the patch, the Graven Innocence event will give players a shot at getting a free Collei to start their Sumeru exploration. If you complete all the events in the questline — specifically The Unappreciated Carving — you will have the Forest Watcher join your party.

By helping the staff in Acara Crafts find assistants and work on their toy-making projects you can also earn some Primogems, Crown of Insights, and level up materials. However, it’s the free Collei everyone wants.

You can find the full Genshin Impact Version 3.0 patch notes below, courtesy of HoYoverse. The update went live on August 24, 2022.
