Genshin Impact 3.0: Sumeru release date, characters, Dendro element


GENSHIN Impact is now one of the biggest RPGs in the world, and this year will see the release of Genshin Impact 3.0.

Genshin Impact 3.0 is set to introduce more new features than ever before, which we’ll break down here.

Dori, Collei, and Tighnari, coming to Genshin Impact’s Sumeru locale.

First off is a brand new region, Sumeru, which will bring with it dozens of locations to explore and even more quests to complete. Alongside we’ll be treated to new characters and even a brand new element to use in battle.

For everything you need to know about the upcoming Genshin Impact update 3.0 and the new Sumeru region, just read through our explainer below.

Sumeru release date – Genshin Impact 3.0

We know that Sumeru will launch alongside Genshin Impact 3.0. 2.8 has only just begun, and 2.9 is roughly six weeks away. 

With that in mind, it’s safe to estimate that we’ll see Sumeru and Genshin Impact 3.0 launch in October 2022

As long as there are unforeseen delays, we’ll be playing through Sumeru in just a few months.

New Sumeru characters – Genshin Impact 3.0

We’ve already had three playable Genshin Impact characters confirmed that hail from Sumeru, though we haven’t seen them in action yet.

  • Dori (Catalyst, Electro) – a merchant from Sumeru.
  • Collei (Bow, Dendro) – an apprentice ranger from Sumeru.
  • Tighnari (Catalyst, Dendro) – an experienced ranger from Sumeru.

Two of these new characters use the new Dendro element, while Dori is a more familiar Electro user. 

Dendro is a brand new element due to be introduced in Genshin Impact 3.0, so it’s a natural choice for the new cast members. On the subject of Dendro…

New Dendro element – Genshin Impact 3.0

Dendro is the seventh and apparently final element to be introduced in Genshin Impact, and you’ll be able to wield this power for yourself if you manage to pull Collei or Tighnari with your Genshin Impact primogems.

Dendro does of course introduce a few new elemental reactions to Genshin Impact, so combine with these elements for some new effects:

  • Bloom – a combination of Dendro and Hydro.
  • Catalyze – a combination of Dendro and Electro.

Bloom looks set to be a solid reaction choice for a healing role, as it has the potential to spawn healing items in battle.

Catalyze seems to boost elemental reaction damage, but exact details on both new elemental reactions are currently thin on the ground.

Experienced Genshin Impact players will already be aware that Dendro can be combined with Pyro for the Combustion elemental reaction.

Elements may take a more important role in Sumeru, as it appears that certain events can be triggered with elemental reactions. For example, using Pyro to burn foliage and clear plants.
