FAQs on Genshin Impact Dendro Element

No. There is no Dendro character in Genshin Impact right now.

Dendro is one of the seven Elements. Its associated Archon is Kusanali, whose domain is Sumeru. Currently, there are no playable Dendro characters in the game.

Technically, Dendro isn’t missing from the game, because while no characters use it, there are some enemies that do. But the element’s current state is lackluster with only one reaction, so it’s understandably a long-requested addition to the game.

Dendro is a Poison-type Element, portrayed with a lime green color, and is expected to have Elemental Reactions with at least Pyro users.

The first Dendro character is expected to appear in either version 2.6 or 2.7. It will likely be Yaoyao or Baizhu, as literally no other Dendro characters outside of the archon of the elements themselves have even been mentioned.

Visions are similar in appearance to glass pendant orbs, they allow the wielders to focus their mental energy so that they can use the elemental powers of the Archon that blessed them. Once given this power, the wielders are called “Allogenes”.


Dendro, the wood-like element of Genshin Impact, and its users like Baizhu and Yao Yao have yet to see the light of the day and are still in development. However, Sumeru is the next destination of the Traveler in the main story of Genshin Impact. Sumeru is the Dendro region.

Yaoyao has been a long-rumored five-star rated character in Genshin Impact. She is also rumored to be the first playable dendro-elemental character in the game.
