This page also outlines the Genshin Impact version 3.2 release date, so you know exactly when you can jump in!
New Archon Quest and boss fight
Version 3.2 features the final chapter of the main archon quest for Sumeru, as we ned to go out and save the Dendro Archon, as well as put and end to the plots of two Fatui Harbringers. In short, it’s a massive conclusion to months of storylines.
To mark this massive high point in the narrative, we also get an explosive Scaramouche boss fight, as they take control of a giant puppet and our third every Fatui boss fight. Coming in two phases and likely the most spectacular fights we’ve had yet, Version 3.2 is a major moment in Genshin Impact’s history.
New characters: Nahida and Layla
Genshin Impact Version 3.2 also comes with two new characters, both earnable via wish banners during the update’s run time.
The first is Nahida, the Dendro Archon and catalyst user. Nahida’selemental skill can be tapped or held for aiming mode. Holding marks enemies, and when marked enemies are hit with the skill, a massive chained damage effect hits all marked enemies for loads of damage. Nahida’s Elemental skill can also grab collectable materials out in the world, which sould make collecting resources much easier.
As for her elemental burst, Nahida expands a special field around her. This provides a series of buffs to Nahida’s powers depending on the elemental alignment of your party, so you’ll need to build your team carefully if you want to make the most out of the character.
Then you’ve got Layla, a four-star Cryo sword user who makes up a major part of this udpate.
Layla’s elemental skill creates a shield around you active character. This shield generates night stars over time. When you have four stars, they shoot out and hit nearby enemies. Each time a star is created, the shield strength is increased too, making it a great mix of offence and defence.
As for Layla’s elemental burst, you put out a turret, which shoots out stars at enemies whenever you generate a star using the elemental skill shield. When this is places down and the shield is up, you’ll be showing down additional damage on enemies you’re fighting.
