The world of Genshin Impact, Teyvat, consists of seven countries with different lands; Each place represents an element. Version 2.0 of Genshin Impact began the “era” of the Lightning element, when the land of Inazuma was first opened.
Elementals also play an extremely important role in Genshin Impact. Not only the plot, the world in the game but the combat system of the game also revolves around the element. In the near future, there is a high possibility that Sumeru is the next land that the Travelers will set foot on. This ability is almost confirmed in the game’s plot, along with many rumors and leaks that dataminers have found.
Sumeru is the land of the Thao God, representing the most “mysterious” element Genshin Impact, the element Thao. Currently, this element has not been released in gameplay, although there are some characters that are said to use Vision Thao such as Baizhu or YaoYao. The Thao element only appears in very small details in the plot.
Outside the world, it is possible to encounter Grass-type Slime or Hilichurl Grass-type Mage. These are the only two creatures so far that use the element Thao and cause elemental reactions, but only with the element Fire. This has many fans wondering how Thao-type characters will cause elemental reactions with other elements.
A recent leaker on Reddit revealed that the role of the Wind type, especially Venti, could be a lot more useful when Sumeru unfolds. According to this leaker, wind-type characters will be very useful when players set foot in a new area.
In contrast, Zhongli is not expected to be very useful in the Sumeru update. The leakers revealed that Zhongli’s strength is still the same, but maybe this character’s ability will not be as useful as some other Wind characters. This may be related to the elemental reaction between the Thao system and the Wind system, which has not been revealed until now.
Previously, some leakers thought that both Nham and Phong did not combine well with the Thao element. The Thao element will probably react better to Fire and Lightning. However, these are unverified information and can be changed at the last minute.
In addition, a well-known leaker also revealed that Scaramouche may become a “Weekly Boss” in the Sumeru region, after the 3.1 update.
Useful to Sumeru or not, Venti is still a character worth possessing. To date, Venti’s first banner is still the highest-grossing banner that no other character has surpassed. Possessing good crowd control, extremely good diffusion and support, Venti has never lost its appeal in the eyes of fans.
The Sumeru update version is yet to be confirmed. It is widely reported that Genshin Impact 2.8 may be the last update related to Inazuma, and will “jump” immediately to version 2.0, with the new land of Sumeru being opened around August this year (information not yet available). authenticated). The story of Genshin Impact will be developed to new heights, as new areas, events and mechanics are opened up for players to enjoy.
