Genshin Impact players know well that the Archons are massively important characters and main protagonists in the game's story.

So far, we have met three of seven archons, Venti (Anemo), Zhongli (Geo), and Ei (Electro). Well, the time to meet Nahida, the Dendro Archon, is near, and we are very excited.

Here's everything you need to know about Nahida in Genshin Impact and all the latest leaks.


Nahida Banner Release Date

According to the latest information, the debut of Nahida will be in Genshin Impact 3.2, launching on November 2, 2022, based on this year's schedule.

Nahida will likely be the only new Dendro character until the first quarter of 2023.

Who is Nahida in Genshin Impact?

In the latest Archon Quest, we discovered that the little girl speaking in our dreams is Nahida, the young Dendro Archon, also known as the lesser Lord Kusanali.

According to the lore, the Dendro Archon is only 500 years old, the youngest God. Her age explains why Nahida is a little girl compared to Venti, who is 2400 years old, a young boy.

Nahida's Signature Weapon

Leaks revealed the Signature Catalyst for the Dendro Archon. The weapon is designed as a genie lamp, with green and white decorations. The name is A Thousand Floating Dreams.

Unfortunately, the Geo characters don't get along with Dendro Teams. Otherwise, we could have a Dendro Dream Team.


Put Zhongli on the bench and bring Yelan or Kokomi, and we will have a fantastic team.

These are other options and variations:

DPS: Yelan, Nilou, Cyno

SUB-DPS: Raiden Shogun, Fischl, Yae Miko, Xingqiu

Elemental Enabler: Nahida (Dendro Archon)

Support: Venti, Sucrose, Kazuha, Layla.

What is more interesting now is knowing which other weapons will work better for her. For now, her signature weapon, and we believe the Crafting Catalyst in Sumeru, Fruit Of Fulfillment, is the best F2P option.
