Archons are supposed to be some of the most powerful characters in the game, and because of that, the Dendro Archon Nahida is highly anticipated. She is going to be the top Dendro character and many players are skipping banners to summon Nahida when she comes out later this year.

To capitalize on the hype, Genshin Impact leakers have revealed Nahida's gacha art, some details about her kit, and the gacha art of a brand new character called Layla.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything available so far about the 3.2 update.

Genshin Impact Nahida splash art

Nahida will be released on November 2, 2022, according to the game's current schedule. Below is the splash art leak for Nahida and Layla.

While the image is quite blurry, it is quite easy to make out the Dendro-themed art. Nahida is surrounded by what looks like a massive burst of plant life and possibly a large mushroom overhead. This is rather fitting as she is the Dendro Archon.

Layla is going to arrive in the Nahida banner during the 3.2 update. She is a Cryo Sword user. Her introduction is a surprise for most players, as she did not appear at all in the Sumeru leak.

Elemental Skill & Burst

Apparently, Nahida's kit will focus on Dendro application, similar to all Dendro characters so far. It is likely that her kit will be a better version of the Traveler's kit. Additionally, she would scale based on Elemental Mastery, similar to the other Dendro users.

Nahida Genshin Impact
Players might want to skip some banners to save for her
  • Elemental Skill has 2 types of activation, Press and Hold.
  • It can be aimed like Fischl or Itto, which means players can place the ability strategically.
  • Apparently, Nahida is going to have a unique sprint like Ayaka or Mona, however, it also applies similarly to Fischl's Q. This means she might not have the usual underground dive/sprint move.

Nahida's elemental skill might allow her to generate Dendro continuously as she moves. This would be useful in combo teams.

Her Burst, on the other hand, might be similar to the Dendro Traveler, which creates a Dendro construct that gains different effects when it with elements.


Apparently, Nahida's constellations can improve her Dendro support for allies and her own combo consistency.

So far all Dendro characters are built around reactions.

The first constellation aims to solve her energy issues (due to her high-energy-cost Elemental Burst). Players might want to get C1 if they are not planning on running her alongside a battery.

Nahida's second constellation will improve her damage all over the board. The leak claims that it will allow her to become a DPS character on-field by boosting her damage based on Elemental Mastery.

C2 is a good stopping spot if you want to main Nahida - without it, she would be more of an off-field support character.
