Genshin Impact 3.6 upcoming banners

Baizhu is revealed to be the first new character. Baizhu was first introduced as an NPC in version 1.0, and he has now been added to the playable roster. He’s the owner of Bubu Pharmacy, and his tagline is “Beyond Morality.” He is associated with the Dendro element and the Lagenaria constellation.

Next up is Kaveh, a well-known Sumeru architect whose tagline is “Empyrean Reflection.” He is a Dendro character with the constellation Paradisaea.

However, neither will be available immediately after the version is released. The first half will feature rerun banners of Nahida and Nilou, as well as their signature weapons in the Weapon’s Banner.

In addition, Layla, Kuki Shinobu, and Dori are the three 4 stars characters rumored to join in the first part of update, according to a recent new post on the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit.

Baizhu will only appear in the second half, sharing the spotlight with Ganyu, the other 5-star. Kaveh will also be included in this banner, which is unusual for new 5 and 4-stars.

Genshin Impact 3.6 2

Following the update, Kaveh will be added to the standard character pool alongside every other 4-star character before him. Baizhu, on the other hand, is not following in Dehya’s footsteps, and he will remain a limited character for the time being

Genshin Impact 3.6 Baizhu character overview


Universal Diagnosis (Elemental Skill): Baizhu controls a Gossamer Sprite that cruises around and attacks opponents nearby, dealing Dendro Damage. The Sprite will return after three attacks or if there are no opponents nearby, healing all nearby party members based on Baizhu’s Max HP.

Healing Holism (Elemental Burst):  Baizhu enters the Pulsing Edict state, creating a Seamless Shield. While in this state, Baizhu will generate a new Seamless Shield every 2.5 seconds. The Seamless Shield will heal your active character based on Baizhu’s Max HP and attack opponents by unleashing Spiritveins, dealing Dendro Damage under the following circumstances:

  • When a character is under the protection of a Seamless Shield and a new Seamless Shield is generated.
  • When the Seamless Shield’s effects expire, or when it is shattered.


Herbal Nourishment: When Baizhu is in the party, interacting with certain collectible items will heal your active character for 2.5 percent of Baizhu’s Max HP.

Five Fortunes Forever: Baizhu gains different effects according to the current HP of your active character.

  • When their HP is less than 50 percent, Baizhu gains a 20 percent Healing Bonus.
  • When their HP is equal to or more than 50 percent, Baizhu gains a 25 percent Dendro Damage Bonus.

All Things Are of the Earth: Characters who are healed by Seamless Shields will gain the Year of Verdant Favor effect.

Verdant Favor effect: Every 1,000 Max HP that Baizhu possesses below 50,000 will increase the Burning, Bloom, Hyperbloom, and Burgeon reaction damage dealt by these characters by 2 percent, while the Aggravate and Spread reaction damage dealt by these characters will be increased by 0.8 percent. This effect lasts for six seconds.


Constellation 1 (Even the Slightest Groan): One charge is added to Universal Diagnosis.

Constellation 2 (Skilled of Hand):Baizhu will unleash a Gossamer Sprite: Splice when your active character attacks a nearby opponent.

Gossamer Sprite: Splice will launch one attack before returning, dealing 300 percent of Baizhu’s attack as Dendro Damage and healing for 20 percent of the normal healing of Universal Diagnosis’ Gossamer Sprite.

This type of damage is classified as Elemental Skill damage. This effect can be activated every six seconds.

Constellation 3 (All Aspects Stabilized):Increases the Healing Holism Level by three. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

Constellation 4 (Ancient Perception): Baizhu will increase all nearby party members’ Elemental Mastery by 80 for 15 seconds after using Healing Holism.

Constellation 5 (Hidden Shifting Signs): Increases the Universal Diagnosis Level by three. The highest upgrade level is 15.

Constellation 6 (Aura Flow): Increases the damage dealt by Healing Holism’s Spiritveins by 6% of Baizhu’s maximum health. Furthermore, when Gossamer Sprite or Gossamer Sprite: Splice hits an opponent, there is a 100% chance of generating one of Healing Holism’s Seamless Shields. This effect can only be triggered once by a Gossamer Sprite or Gossamer Sprite: Splice.

New events & features

The title celebration, which focuses on the Akademiya Extravaganza festival in Sumeru, is the main event in “A Parade of Providence.” All Akademiya-related characters will be present as main characters, accounting for more than half of Sumeru’s playable cast.

As the main reward, players can claim a free Faruzan, who is one of the many characters featured in this event. As usual, completing the event’s various activities and minigames will net you a slew of Primogems, Mora, and other rewards.

To commemorate the new area, all side events are desert-themed. In Fulminating Sandstorm, you’ll be defending some mechanisms and defeating Wenuts, while Brewing Developments is another combat fest with unique rules.

Recollectors’ Path uses the new gadget obtained IN the new area to teach us how to use it. There is also another Leyline Overflow rerun, this time for Talent Books.

New artifacts

Nymph’s Dream and Vourukasha’s Glow are also new Artifact Sets. The former is another Hydro-related set, most likely made ahead of time for future Fontaine characters, whereas the latter appears to be aimed specifically at Dehya, but could be used on a variety of characters.

The new set includes some fantastic bonuses, such as a 10% increase in Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG, as well as 5 stacks of DMG bonus after taking damage. With a 15% Hydro DMG bonus and a maximum of 5 stacks of Nymph’s Croix, which can increase ATK and Hydro DMG, Nymph’s Dream may become Childe’s new best-in-slot pick. It’ll be interesting to see how these new sets affect gameplay and character builds.

New enemies

It has been revealed by Babey that the 3.6 patch will add a number of new enemies to the game, including Anemo and Hydro versions of the classic Hilichurl Rangers.

Furthermore, the leak implies the addition of new Consecrated enemies with Hydro and Dendro forms. These new enemies are likely to provide a new challenge to players and keep the gameplay exciting.

The Dendero Dragon of Verdure Weekly Boss is also introduced, complete with three phases for us to defeat. In addition, there’s a new regular World Boss with a powered-up version of an Abyss Herald wandering the desert, wielding the power of three different elements in battle. According to rumors, the new boss will enter battle with a Cryo Shield and +200% Elemental Resistance.

Furthermore, Cryo attacks that hit the character will drain 80 stamina, with an additional 25 stamina drain if it triggers again within 3 seconds, affecting the entire party. The new boss’s English name is rumored to be Iniquitous Baptist.

The tentative lineup for version 3.6’s Spiral Abyss has been leaked by Genshin Impact leaker Nico Shounen. There are both old and new enemies on Floor 11, like the Hydro Mimics and Fatui Skirmishers, as well as the Hilichurl Rogues, which were added in version 3.6. The boss rotation on Floor 12 changes, with the Aeonblight Drake, the Sumeru desert’s Algorithm World Boss, and three forms of the Maguu Kenki appearing in the later stages of the top floor. The new version of the Spiral Abyss is expected to be released alongside version 3.6 next month.

Domain Leaks

It has recently been revealed that two new “Adventure” domains with Primogem rewards will be introduced in Version 3.6.

The Fragrant Inland Sea will appear in the southeast region of the new desert offering 40 Primogems, a flower from the “Desert Pavilion Chronicle” artifact set, and a collection of Sumeru’s Talent books. The Sin-Cleansing Spring in the northwest will offer similar rewards, substituting a feather from the same set for the Desert Pavilion Chronicle flower.

New Sumeru Location

Another leak has revealed a new area of Sumeru. It could be included in the upcoming 3.6 updates. According to the information that has been leaked, the Dendro nation is larger than both Mondstadt and Liyue combined.

As always, players should take rumors and leaks with a grain of salt, but if the rumors about Genshin Impact 3.6 are true, it looks like it will be a fantastic update that further expands the already massive game.
