The upcoming Genshin Impact 3.0 will introduce the element Dendro, which has been missing from elemental reactions for a long time. The addition of Dendro and its elemental reactions provides the Genshin Impact community with a new way to play against other elemental reactions.
With the first launch, players will need time to understand and get used to this element. Fortunately, there are only three elements that can cause reactions with Dendro, so it shouldn’t take long to get used to these new elemental reactions.
Genshin Impact 3.0: Explains all 7 Dendro reactions
The first Sumeru preview trailer introduced the Dendro element to Genshin Impact. Additionally, the trailer explains more about the new Dendro reactions that gamers can take advantage of.
Based on the teaser, the Dendro element will have three main reactions.
When Dendro reacts with Hydrogen, the player activates Bloom, which will drop a Dendrocore or a seed on the ground. The seed will explode after six seconds, dealing AoE Dendro damage.
In addition to Superconduct, Catalyze will be a new elemental reaction debuff that causes enemies to take additional damage from Electro and Dendro. Catalysis can be activated with Dendro and Electro.
A combustion reaction can be produced when Dendro and Pyro react with each other. This elemental reaction has been in the game for a long time. When dealt, it leaves a DoT (Damage Over Time) to the enemy.
Genshin Impact: Dendro .’s Side Effects
Bloom has two side effects that the player can further trigger. They are Hyperbloom and Burgeon.
This is because the element Electro is applied to the Moringa plant or seed. The seed will explode into javelin arrows that deal damage to Dendor.
On the other hand, burgeons can be caused when Pyro is applied to a Dendrocore or seed, and the seed will explode normally. However, the range and intensity of the explosion will be increased.
Similar to Bloom, Catalyze has two side effects: Aggravate and Spread. When Electro attacks a Catalyzed debuffed enemy, an Aggravate reaction is generated.
The aggravating reaction deals extra Electro damage to affected enemies. To cause a Spread reaction, the user will have to hit enemies catalyzed with Dendro to deal additional damage to Dendro.
Benefits of new Dendro element reactions
These are all reactions that gamers need to keep in mind to get the most out of the new Dendro element. With their debut, they will have more flexibility in team building. The new element will also bring potential changes to the game’s meta, affecting the use of certain characters and teams.
Patch 3.0 will be released globally within the next two weeks, and fans will finally get a chance to test out the new battle mechanics. However, keep in mind that Dendro and its elemental reactions are just one of many things coming with the Sumeru update, so there’s a lot more to come. Stay up to date with us
