Genshin Impact 3.0 is on its way, and leaks are beginning to reveal tons of information about its massive roster of characters. This update will take players to a huge new region, introduce a new Element and set of reactions, and begin the new storyline for the rest of the year.

Fans of Dendro will definitely want to be saving up their Primogems for the 3.0 update, as Sumeru's cast seems to be heavily focused on utilizing the element. Gamers can find out more about many of Sumeru's leaked characters here.

  • Djajeet
  • Nafs
  • Dori
  • Ikhfa
  • Layla
  • Soutine
  • Nilou - Hydro, red hair, and horns, said to be a healer.
  • Tighnari - Male, short model, said to have Klee-like Elf ears and wields a bow.
  • Nahida - May appear during the 2.8 update's story to introduce Sumeru.
  • Baizhu - Male Liyue resident who looks to have more lore revelations during 3.0.
  • Collei - A female 4-star Dendro bow user who appeared during the game's official Webtoon.

  • Capitano - Another Fatui Harbinger.
  • Su - A character from Honkai Impact is expected to make an appearance in Genshin, with their design and history changed to fit the new world.

Each of these characters will likely undergo tons of changes before their release, as the beta for the Genshin Impact 3.0 update is only just beginning. Fans should be sure to hold on to their Primogems if they are looking forward to any of these upcoming releases, as the update is only a few months away.

Many of these leaks are still unconfirmed at the time of writing, though some names have been located in the game's files (like Nahida and Tighnari). Characters like Cyno and Baizhu have also already made official appearances, so players can be sure that they will arrive at some point during the set of 3.0 updates.

Genshin leaks //Tighnari will be the 5 star character from 3.0! He’ll wield a bow 🏹He also has ‘long ears’, with a lot of Sumeru characters having animal features

The 3.0 update is set to bring two new 4-star characters and a 5-star character along with the release of Sumeru. This makes it one of the biggest updates since the game has launched, and there will be ample new content for gamers to enjoy.


Post 3.0, fans can look forward to new releases like the Dendro Archon in 3.1 and the addition of Scaramouche in 3.2. Scaramouche leaks have stated that he will not appear until the 2022 Genshin Impact Anniversary and that he is a 5-star Electro Catalyst user. He will focus on Transformative reactions and will likely work very well with the Electro element.

The rest of Sumeru's lineup will likely be slowly released over the duration of the region, with many of these 5-star and 4-star characters being featured on banners from 3.2 onwards.

Genshin Impact's 3.0 update is bringing an insane amount of content to the game, and players will want to make sure they are ready to summon these new characters.
