HoYoVerse often shares cutscenes from important Genshin Impact events after they appear in-game. That’s just happened with a major one from Archon Quest Chapter 3, Act 5. People who haven’t gone through the Sumeru storyline yet, but want to know what happens can. The official Genshin Impact video shares spoilers about the Sumeru Archon Quest boss fight and certain characters.
Editor’s Note: There will be Genshin Impact spoilers regarding the Sumeru Archon Quest Chapter 3, Act 5 boss fight and certain characters below.
The video begins with Aether, the male version of the Traveler avatar, in the midst of the fight against the Everlasting Lord of Arcane Wisdom Shouki no Kami, the Prodigal. This is the new Weekly Boss who appears during the “Where the Boat of Consciousness Lies” quest. It seems as though the boss got the upper hand. Nahida steps in front of Aether before he can deal a finishing blow.
That’s when the Genshin Impact Sumeru spoilers really kick in. Scaramouche confronts Nahida about her actions and attacks her. However, when he does, she says, “The data collection is almost complete.” She then confirms that what is happening here is similar to something that occurred during “The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings.” That is, there is a time loop in effect. We then see how Nahida uses the Akasha to ensure Aether’s success.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and 3.2 is live now.
