In terms of 3.8 character banners, players can rejoice as the comebacks of fan-favourites Eula and Klee from Mondstadt take the stage in the first phase. Following their grand return, phase two will feature the banners for Kokomi and Wanderer, bringing the chapter of Sumeru to a close.

Spiral Abyss changes

This version will also bring updates to the monster lineup on Floors 11 and 12 of the Spiral Abyss. The Floor 11 Ley Line Disorder was also changed to a 75% Physical DMG Bonus for all party members, which welcomes the return of the champion of vengeance, Eula.

Starting from the first time that the Lunar Phase refreshes after updating to Version 3.8, the three Lunar Phases will be as follows:

Phase I

  • Fleeting Moon
    • Within 10s after the character enters the field, the character's Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will deal 30% increased DMG. Their ATK SPD will also be increased by 10%.

Phase II

  • Shifting Moon
    • When a character loses or restores HP, all party members will gain 7.5% increased ATK for 10s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.1s. Max 4 stacks.

Phase III

  • Ingressing Moon
    • When the active character deals consecutive instances of Elemental DMG of the same Elemental Type or Physical DMG using Normal, Charged, or Plunging Attacks to an opponent, they will gain 1 count stack. 1 stack can be gained every 0.3s. The stacks for every Elemental and Physical DMG will be counted independently. After 6 stacks have been gained, a shockwave will be unleashed at the opponent's position, dealing True DMG and clearing all previously accumulated stacks for this DMG type.

Adjustments & optimisations

  • For Hangout Events, upon reaching the end of the event and obtaining the Hangout Memory menu, you can use the newly-added "Review Invitation" button to view the narrative checkpoints
  • Optimises the Quest-tracking process: When the objective is a certain distance from Travelers, clicking Navigate will open the Map
  • Commissions can now be tracked persistently. After your tracked Commission Quest comes to an end, the next Commission Quest will automatically be tracked
