Genshin Impact 3.5 Livestream Recap

The VOD of the Version 3.5 Special Program Livestream can be found here.

New Character – Dehya

“The Eremites,” a loosely-organized mercenary organization, is Sumeru’s most powerful armed force. They consist of many mercenaries and bands of warriors-for-hire who carry out assignments independently.

One such brigade is the “Blazing Beasts,” whose most renowned member is Dehya, also known as the “Flame-Mane.”


We initially meet Dehya in the middle of our journey in Sumeru, and she accompanies us until the end of the Archon Quest. Now, the Flame-Mane Eremite will finally become playable!

“Flame-Mane” Dehya is a 5-star Pyro Claymore character revealed on the Genshin Impact Version 3.5 Livestream to be playable on the same version. Learn more about Dehya and her Skills, Constellations, and more here.

New Character – Mika

“Mika, who is a member of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company, always diligently fulfills all the duties that come his way.

Setting up tents, lighting fires for cooking, repairing equipment… Even Hertha, the logistics captain, has nothing but praise for Mika’s excellent efficiency.”


We only had a glimpse of Mika a couple Versions ago, during an event. Now, players who want to know more about him can now do so with his reveal as a playable character!

“Coordinates of Clear Frost” Mika is an upcoming 4-star Cryo Polearm character. You can learn more about Mika here.

Genshin Impact 3.5 Banners

The first phase of Genshin Impact 3.5 banners will feature this update’s new 5-star character, Dehya, along with a rerun for Cyno. After the 3.6 update, Dehya will join the standard wish “Wanderlust Invocation” pool.

The second phase is dominated by Cryo characters with Kamisato Ayaka and Shenhe reruns in the “The Heron’s Court” and “The Transcendent One Returns” banners respectively. Mika will be a featured 4-star in both of these banners.

As for Weapon Banners, the first phase is expected to have the new weapon, the Beacon of the Reed Sea, along with Staff of Scarlet Sands. The second half will most likely feature the Mistsplitter Reforged and the Calamity Queller.

New Archon Quest – Chapter III Act VI: Caribert

The Archon Quests continue in Genshin Impact Version 3.5 with the Traveler Act in Chapter III, titled “Caribert.” The livestream hinted that the name Caribert will be a key element in this Archon Quest.

As always, Dainsleif is involved in anything Khaenri’ah. This Archon Quest will help us learn more about The Abyss and the mysteries of Teyvat. Furthermore, Kaeya may also have involvement in this Archon Quest.

New Story Quest – Mantichora Chapter: Act I

In time with the addition of “Flame-Mane” Dehya as a playable character, we can also learn more about her in her Story Quest “Mantichora Chapter: Act I.”

New Hangout Event – Faruzan

Hangout Events introduces Series VIII, featuring the Sumeru Akademiya’s Faruzan! Spend time with her and learn more about the Akademiya and Faruzan herself through the multiple routes of the Hangout Event.


New Enemy – Abyss Herald: Frost Fall

A monster from the Abyss Order that wields frigid, icy blades in battle.

Just as there are saints who will spread and glorify the profound gospel, there are envoys who must correct any twisted strains and remove any dissonance.

People often say that steel feels like ice as it pierces the body, but this dark frost is said to freeze even the soul.

An Abyss Order monster that uses a dark power to command ice and frost in battle. Some of its attacks decrease the Stamina of characters when they deal DMG against them.

New Enemy – Black Serpent Knight: Rockbreaker Ax

A guard of some standing in the court, sundering the foes of the nation’s rulers using a sword art known as “Truthseeker.”

Though Truthseeker is, strictly speaking, a sword art, but its teachings can also be used with various other weapons — and in the realm’s darkest hour, those who had to protect their homeland had little room to be fussy anyway.

This seems to have once been a trusted guard of high standing in some land who wielded the power of Geo. Its attacks become stronger and fiercer when they hit shielded characters, at the cost of its own health.

Genius Invokation TCG – Heated Bttle Mode

A limited time game mode called “Heated Battle Moded” will be available in Genius Invokation TCG in Version 3.5. This will focus on reducing the cost of Elemental Dice. The number of Elemental dice required to play the first card from your hand every round will be reduced by two, the number of Elemental Dice required to use the first character skill each round will also be reduced by one.

This will hasten Genius Invokation TCG games as players can stack up their Elemental Skill faster and play more cards per round.


The Genshin Impact Version 3.5 update is expected on Wednesday, March 1st, 2023.
