Genshin Impact 3.0 Banners
Recent leaks revealed the identity of the three new characters coming in Genshin Impact 3.0 banners, and while this remains unconfirmed, it paints an exciting picture of what's next.
A character from the Genshin Impact Manga, Collei will reportedly be a 4-star Dendro Bow character.
Similar to Xiangling and Itto, Collei will have a companion that will deal DMG when it is on the field.
Tighnari is an expert Botanist from Sumeru, as a playable character he is reportedly a 5-star Dendro Bow user.
Leaks suggest his playstyle will focus on the use of Charged Attacks, similar to the kit of Ganyu. Tighnari DMG will also reportedly scale with Elemental Mastery.
It seems the Electro Element is getting a second Electro Healer, after the release of Kuki Shinobu, if leaks are to be believed.
Dori will have a young model like Diona and Klee. She will be a 4-star Claymore user that will heal, even when she's not on the field.
With the arrival of Sumeru, we will have the Dendro version of the Traveler.
The kit will have similarities with Lisa, as the Dendro traveler will send objects to the field that will receive buffs depending on the elemental reaction.
- Hydro: Increases range of objects attacks.
- Electro: Increases speed of objects attacks.
- Pyro: Object explodes, similar to Pyro slimes.
Genshin Impact 3.0 is a big one in terms of the game's map. We are receiving an entirely new nation with new teleport waypoints, chests, and quests.
In the end, we can expect a lot of new content with the arrival of Sumeru the Dendro nation.
We don't have details about new normal enemies, but data miners found files for something called the Electro Regisvine, rumored to be a new boss.
New Weapons and Artifacts
We have received information about two new artifact sets.
These two new sets seem quite interesting:
- The first set will increase Dendro damage and debuffs enemies affected by the element
- The second set will offer a boost to Crit. DMG and will reduce the DEF of enemies with shields
Genshin Impact 3.0 Events
The journey of The Traveler and Paimon to meet the Dendro Archon starts in version 3.0, therefore we can expect the beginning of the Archon Quest's third chapter.
We will also have Story Quest for Tighnari the 5-star Dendro character, and most likely Hangouts quest for Collei and Dori.
The information in this article is subject to change in the final version, we recommend taking things that aren't confirmed with a grain of salt. As more information arrives, we'll update with all the latest.
