Hello, Travelers! Your Genshin Impact dev team is here to meet you again. After two months in the Nation of Wisdom, the next update is now confirmed to arrive on November 2. With Version 3.2 “Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises,” we will finally come to the very moment where Sumeru’s fate will be decided. Team up with Nahida, Layla, and more reliable allies to find out more!
Beyond the Archon Quest, a series of fun events will take place, including “Fabulous Fungus Frenzy” where Travelers can catch and train Fungi. Besides, we’d like also like to announce that Genshin Impact will include Italian and Turkish subtitles starting from Version 3.3! We can’t wait to see more players from diverse backgrounds joining us in the future!
The Dendro Archon and the Man-Made God
After experiencing the Sabzeruz Festival samsara and surviving the journey through the desert, we will finally reach the end of the Sumeru Archon Quest arc. Picking up right where we left off, Nahida has been confined in the Sanctuary of Surasthana by The Doctor. As the Dendro Archon, the Akademiya and the Grand Sage, two Fatui Harbingers, desert-dwellers, and all other important players enter the scene, the final chapter will push the story to the climax.
Although the Traveler will receive support from many allies, including insiders like Cyno, the General Mahamatra, and Alhaitham, the path to save Nahida and Sumeru will be fraught with difficulties, as will the epic fight against The Balladeer. Different from The Balladeer we’ve encountered before, the third Fatui Harbinger boss that we are destined to fight comes in the form of a massive mechanical-looking puppet crafted by the Akademiya and The Doctor. To defeat this boss, you will have to survive two combat phases. In the first phase, The Balladeer’s upper body will take the stage with gigantic mechanical arms, along with several types of elemental powers and abilities, including attacks that create huge Hydro tornadoes, Electro beams, and burning or freezing fields.
But you will not fight alone. A floating device will accompany you throughout the combat and help turn the tide in the second phase. After The Balladeer transformed into this massive form, your regular attacks will no longer do any damage. The floating little helper will be the only one capable of breaking through his defenses and attacking the boss’ weak points.
The end of the Archon Quest does not mean the end of our journey in Sumeru. Whether it’s the mysteries from the past or changes in the future, there are still lots to be uncovered.
More Allies From Sumeru
After accompanying the Traveler on their long journey, Nahida is finally ready to join the cast as a playable five-star Dendro catalyst user. Meanwhile, Layla, an Akademiya student with an unusual ability, will be joining as a four-star Cryo sword user.
Since her birth, Lesser Lord Kusanali, also known as Nahida, has yet to set foot in
