What's new in Genshin Impacts' latest update: let's find out


Genshin Impact is a free open world adventure RPG game from miHoYo. The game is available for Android, IOS, Windows, GeForce Now, Playstation 4 and 5. Genshin Impact is the most-discussed game on Twitter in 2022 because of the game's intriguing storyline. Genshin Impact 3.0 was released on August 24, 2022. The latest update introduces three new characters, two Double Wish banners and a new area called the Sumeru Region, along with some Archon quests and a new story. A new element has also been released, called the Dendro element.

New role

Three new playable characters, Collie and Tighnari, were announced in the first phase of version 3.0. Another character, Dori, was added in the second phase. Zhongli, kokomi and Ganyu also return in Genshin Impact Update 3.0. Zhongli will appear in the first phase, while Kokomi and Gan Yu will appear in the second phase.

Collie: Collie is Xumi's four-star dendro bow user. It was found in Sumeru very early. Anyone can get this character for free through the Graven Innocence event.

Tinghnari: Tinghnari is one star higher than Collie, making her a five-star Dendro bow user. Since Curley is discovered early in the storyline, so is Tighnari. Tighrnari has a high IQ, but regardless of his IQ, he would rather live a lonely life in the depths of the forest of ignorance than in the ivory of the Xumi Academy.

Dori: Dori is a four-star Electro Claymore user from Sumeru. Dolly is the owner of the Alcazare Palace and a respected businessman.

Genshin Impact New Area

The new Sumeru region was released in Genshin Impact 3.0. The area is full of rainforests and the city is built as a big tree. There is also a port called Ormos, which is the trading center of Sumeru. Sumeru introduces a new element that Dori has called Dendro. Dendro was in the game before, but this time there are new elemental reactions like burn, bloom and catalysis. Electro, Hydro, and Pyro can now be used to change the state of some objects in the area. Jadeplume Terrorshroom and Electro Regisvine also have two new bosses in the Sumeru area.

Genshin Impact New Events

In addition to the new Archon missions, there are several events.

In Grave Innocence, Collie needs support to come up with ideas for a toy store in Port Ormos, drawing inspiration from all over Sumeru. The best part about this event is that you can claim Curley for free just by completing the tutorial missions. The next event is table analysis. This event is designed to help alchemists explore different ways to remelt the slate, allowing their hobbyists to take part in combat challenges to earn rewards. Players can catch their own Dendro Seelie by finding buried treasure. The last event is Leyline Overflow Return, in which players can get double drops of Mora or experience materials from Leylines of Fortune or Wisdom.
