Latest – New Sumeru Promotional Video Shows the Road Ahead

Hoyoverse released a new video about Sumeru, this time around, the trailer was full of action, not just a developer talking about the new region.

  • Apparently, there is a conflict between factions in Sumeru.
    • We can see Cyno fighting against Al Haitham.
    • Dehya's intervention can be interpreted as The Emirates being a force that breaks the balance in the conflict.

Genshin Impact Sumeru Release Date

Sumeru will arrive with Genshin Impact 3.0, which will go live on August 24, 2022, based on the 2022 Schedule.

It will take around one year to explore and discover all regions and stories from the Dendro Nation, so there's plenty to look forward to.

Archon Quest

Sumeru will mark the fourth chapter of the Archon Quest: Truth Amongst the Pages of Purana.

The story takes us to Sumeru to meet with the Dendro Archon that may have answers about the whereabouts of the Traveler's Sibling.

But it seems that along the way we'll find a nation being manipulated for their thirst for knowledge.

What do we know about Sumeru?

The people from Sumeru consider knowledge as the currency of the nation, they worship the God of Wisdom and the state affairs are handled by the Akademiya.

It is also the land of a new element, Dendro, that represent the force of Nature.

Dendro Reactions

Dendro is the last element to be introduced in the game, after two years we will receive the first playable characters from this element.

A new element means new reactions, however, for now, Dendro only interacts with three of the 6 Elements, at least for now. Pyro, Electro, and Hydro.

The following are the names of all the new reactions:

  • Burning
    • Enemies affected by Dendro & Pyro
  • Quicken
    • The combination of Dendro and Electro, leaving an aura in the enemies.
  • Aggravate
    • Applying Electro to a Quicken aura will trigger Aggravate.
  • Spread
    • Applying Dendro to a Quicken aura will trigger Spread.
  • Bloom
    • Bloom occurs when Dendro (or Quicken) interacts with Hydro, creating a Dendro Seed.
  • Rupture
    • If Pyro or Electro don't alter the seeds, they will produce AoE Dendro DMG over time.
  • Burgeon
    • When applying Pyro to a Seed, it will inflict AoE Dendro damage.
  • Hyperbloom
    • When Electro is applied to a Seed, Hyperbloom creates a spark that homes on the closest enemy, dealing Dendro damage.
