The Genshin Impact 3.0 Livestream will be a pretty long one, as after a year of adventures in Inazuma, we are ready to explore Sumeru, the Dendro Nation!

The Special Program is not only the chance to find out about what's coming in the next update, but viewers are also in for a treat with new Promo Codes offering plenty of Free Primogems as well.

Here's everything you need to know about the Genshin Impact 3.0 Livestream as we count down to its start time, including how to watch it, and all the latest news.

LATEST - Vanarana Tree of Dreams Breakdown

Genshin Impact 3.0 will introduce a new map objective called the Vanarana Tree of Dreams.

Similar to the Grand Sakura Tree in Inazuma and the Frostbearer tree in Dragonspine, travelers can exchange Dendro Sigils for rewards.

These are some items available in the Vanarana Tree:

  • 5 Fragile Resin
  • 20 Acquaint Fate
  • 10 Intertwined Fate
  • 5 Midlander weapon billets (One for Each Weapon Type)
  • 4 Sumeru Shrine
  • More Ascension Materials

In the latest Genshin Impact Promotional video, Hoyoverse shows more details about Sumeru characters and the Dendro Archon quest.

By the end of the trailer, we can see a big tree burning while the traveler is watching. The same scene was part of the Fatui teaser trailer.

As we know, the Ley Lines are roots of trees that connect all the Elemental Power in Genshin Impact World.

Therefore, we think the mission of the Traveler in Sumere will be to stopping the Fatui from burning the Vanarana Tree.
