A Genshin Impact fan concept featuring one of the upcoming characters, the Dendro Archon Kusanali, has attracted a lot of attention in the community.
Genshin impact has a huge following on Reddit with the official subreddit having over 1.4 million subscribers right now. Fans often tend to share their thoughts on the game, compare the DPS numbers, and come up with interesting concepts for new characters.
The seven Archons are very popular characters due to their huge importance to the game’s story, and they are strongly linked to the Genshin impact nation they protect. A Genshin impact fan has created a character concept for one of the next Archons to arrive shortly.
A recent post from a Reddit user named HeleBun has an exceptional fan-created design for one of the most anticipated characters in the game – the Dendro Archon. The thread has already amassed nearly 5k upvotes with hundreds of comments complimenting the design. The Dendro Archon, also known as Kusanali in her human form, is expected to be the next Archon in the game after Mondstadt’s Venti, Liyue’s Zhongli, and Inazuma’s Raiden Shogun.

HeleBun has confirmed that the main inspiration for the artwork comes from a Honkai Impact 3rd character, the second most popular Hoyoverse game after Genshin impact† The character’s name is Mobius, and she is a popular scientist with long green hair and a childlike appearance. To some extent, this description matches the previous rumors about the appearance of Kusanali, leading most players to think that the new Dendro Archon will look similar.
The world of Genshin impact has seven nations spread across the world of Teyvat. Hoyoverse has slowly introduced a pattern of unlocking a new major region each year, with Inazuma being the last to be added to the game in July 2021. The game’s official story has already revealed that Kusanali is the youngest Archon and she will rule over the mysterious land of Sumeru, which should be the next nation to arrive.
Fans are very excited about the arrival of Sumeru, as the representative Dendro element still doesn’t appear in any playable character in the game. Multiple leaks claim that the entire Inazuma arc will end with version 2.8, meaning players, including the current one, will have to wait for three more updates before Sumeru officially arrives. Genshin impact update cycles last approximately 45 days, meaning update 3.0 should arrive around mid-August.
Genshin impact is now available on mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development with no confirmed release date.
