Genshin Impact 3.0 Weapons & Artifacts – Hunter's Path, Gilded Dreams & More

The Genshin Impact 3.0 update, The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings, was detailed in its full glory during the recent Special Program Livestream. From fantastic panoramic views across Sumeru to delightful new faces the Traveler will meet, the update is undoubtedly living up to its expectations.

Before the Genshin Impact 3.0 Livestream, several rumors were speculating about the arrival of new weapons and artifacts; and were later confirmed. We'll look at the weapons and artifacts to be featured and their relevant details regarding them in the Genshin Impact 3.0 update.

All New Genshin Impact 3.0 Weapons And Artifacts

The first set of weapons includes two bows: the 5-star Hunter's Path and the 4-star End of the Line. At this time, it's unclear whether these weapons will appear in the forthcoming Epitome Invocation banners. Likewise, we are unsure if they will be featured in a different unannounced event (as a reward) or an Archon Quest.

Based on their weapon design, it's safe to assume that the 5-star Hunter's Path could be equipped on a Dendo bow wielder, like Tighnari or characters that could scale off its stats.

On the other hand, the 4-star End of the Line bow weapon has a swordfish design, possibly targeted at Hydro bow wielders like Kamisato Ayato or Sanganomiya Kokomi, whom the latter will be appearing in Phase II of the Character Event Wish banners.

HoYoverse will also introduce Travelers to a new collection of Forgeable Weapons in the 3.0 update. These forgeable equipment are designed with the Sumeru region in mind as all the weapons in this collection are 4-star grade.

The weapons featured as forgeable in the collection are as follows:

  • 4-star King's Squire (Bow)
  • 4-star Sapwood Blade (Sword)
  • 4-star Moonpiercer (Polearm)
  • 4-star Forest Regalia (Claymore)
  • 4-star Fruit of Fulfilment (Catalyst)

Lastly, per previous leaks, two new Artifact Sets will be included in the Genshin Impact 3.0 update. As previously explained, the Deepwood Memories and Gilded Dreams Artifact Sets have incredible stats that can benefit various characters.

The Deepwood Memories, in particular, still greatly benefit Dendro characters, granting them a 15% Dendro DMG bonus when two pieces are equipped. However, when four pieces are equipped, the intended targets' Dendro resistance decreases by 30% for eight seconds after getting hit by an elemental Skill or Burst.

The Gilded Dreams set in Genshin Impact increases Elemental Mastery by a staggering 80% with two pieces, but it becomes more heightened with four pieces. In addition, the equipped character will gain various buffs depending on the Elemental Type of their party members within eight seconds after using an Elemental Reaction.

They'll gain an ATK boost by 14% for each party member if their Elemental Type matches the equipped character and increases Elemental Mastery by 50 for every party member who doesn't have the same Elemental Type. These buffs will only count a maximum of three party members; this effect is only activated once every eight seconds.

It's worth mentioning that this effect can still be activated off-field by the equipped character. Also, as previously stated, it works for characters who don't have a suitable Artifact Set by the time the Genshin Impact 3.0 update launches.

Likewise, characters who scale off from Elemental Mastery like Kaedehara Kazuha, Sucrose, Venti, and Diluc all have unique builds that best utilize Elemental Mastery.

It has yet to be determined if these Artifact Sets will be available at lunch or through the Archon Quests; as such, Travelers looking to acquire a specific set may want to look out for Deepwood Memories and Gilded Dreams.
