A Genshin Impact player shares an interesting concept where they swapped Alhaitham’s outfit for the Dendro Archon Nahida. Both characters play a very important role in the recent history of Sumeru, which has been in the spotlight for the past few months.
The previous Genshin Impact update added two new sub-regions that belong to the Dendro nation, which should be the last canon expansion until the new Fontaine region becomes explorable. Following HoYoverse’s usual update schedule, version 4.0 and Fontaine should arrive in the second half of August.
A Reddit user named kimidoodlez created a hilarious artwork featuring two very popular Dendro characters, Alhaitham and the Sumeru Archon Nahida. Fans seem to like the artwork, as the post reached over 3,000 upvotes on the game’s main subreddit, with many fans in the comments section wondering if this outfit would equip Alhaitham with Nahida’s iconic swing. Both characters are considered S-tier picks in their respective roles. Since its release, Dendro Archon Nahida has been the best Dendro character in Genshin Impact with a kit that can fit almost any team composition that needs this element. Its Elemental Burst, Illusory Heart, creates a huge dome that provides different types of buffs depending on the element it interacts with.
While Nahida’s main role is support, she can also be used as a main DPS, but players need to acquire all constellation levels from her. Players looking to add her to their squad will unfortunately have to wait a few months, considering she appeared in the first Limited Character Banner from the previous Genshin Impact 3.6 update alongside Hydro user Nilou.
Unlike Nahida, Alhaitham is a five-star Dendro character whose main role is to be the main DPS. While there was a lot of hype around this character, many players avoided pulling him back in the 3.4 update for a variety of reasons. One reason is the fact that much of the community considered him just a Dendro version of the Electro Keqing user.
Travelers who regretted skipping his banner will soon have the chance to acquire it again, as the recent Special Program event confirmed that Alhaitham will appear in the second phase of the current Genshin Impact version 3.7. He will be placed alongside famous Anemo support Kaedehara Kazuha.
Genshin Impact is available now for PC, PS4, PS5 and mobile devices. A Switch version is in development.
