HoYoverse has released a new trailer for Genshin Impact Version 3.3, detailing all the new content coming to the game with the update, including the two new characters, items, artifacts, areas, and events that players can join to obtain plentiful rewards.
Phase 1 of update 3.3 is set to go live on December 7th, introducing two much-awaited characters Faruzan and Wanderer, also known as Scaramouche. HoYoverse hosted a special live stream to showcase the two Anemo holders in action, revealing their accompanying movesets. Wanderer was confirmed to be added to Genshin Impact with update 3.3 a few weeks ago, and the devs have now finally shown off his abilities based on anemo damage.
Wanderer is a five-star catalyst user who can perform up to three attacks with his wind blade. His elemental skill, Hanega: Song of the Wind, allows Wanderer to deal AoE damage by charging and releasing the power of the wind. Upon using his elemental skill, Wanderer leaps into the air, entering a persistent hovering state to make his normal and charged attacks even more powerful, and can also deal increased damage with his charged attack.
Perhaps most interestingly, Wanderer can contact Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, and Elektro to gain various buffs depending on the preferred element, including an increased Kuugoryoku Points cap, higher attack, and higher CRIT rate. Lastly, Wanderer's elemental Burst, Five Ceremonial Plays, deals AoE Anemo damage by compressing and directing the atmosphere upon the opponents.
Faruzan, on the other hand, is the other Anemo holder, who is a bow specialist that can perform precise shots from a distance. She can dole out increased AoE damage to the opponents along the path with her plunging attack. Her elemental skill, Wind Realm of Nasamjnin, deploys a polyhedron to nearby opponents to deal a certain amount of damage. Moreover, Faruzan can release Whirlwind Pulse with her elemental Burst after deploying a Dazzling Polyhedron that deals AoE Anemo damage.
Genshin Impact Version 3.3 also introduces new events, Ley Line Overflow, Windtrace, Battle of Cards, and Across the Wilderness, which has players finding as many Wilderness Balloons as possible within a time limit to earn rewards. Players will use the power of Original Resin to bring four shining Mora and forerunners' experiences into the world with the Ley Line Overflow event. Windtrace, on the other hand, will let players have a battle in a contested zone as the representatives of the Rebels or the Hunters.
Players can take part in the Battle of Cards event, in which they compete against characters, NPCs, and their friends. They will build unique decks with character cards, equipment cards, support cards, and event cards, each having its buffs and effects. Character cards have a normal attack, elemental skill, and elemental Burst to deal damage, allowing players to switch a card with a different element to use its powers.
A new misty dungeon, Realm of Sand, will be available to explore with the upcoming update, featuring mysterious foes in a place warded by sand and dust. Players will earn more rewards than other events by completing Realm of Sand. There is also an Akitsu Kimodameshi event featuring a ton of mini-games that will task players with breaking bricks within a time limit to obtain primogems, talent ascension materials, and character level-up materials.
The five-star Catalyst item Tulaytullah's Remembrance and the four-star Toukabou Shigure will be available to claim with version 3.3. Flower of Paradise Lost, which increases elemental master by 80, and Desert Pavilion Chronicle, which grants Anemo damage bonus by 15%, are the two new artifacts coming to Genshin Impact on December 7th.
Phase 1 of the update will be released on December 7th, followed by the release of phase 2 on December 27th, commencing with the banner reruns for the two five-star characters Ayatoand Raiden.
