Two new bosses are arriving in 3.6: Dragon of Verdure, a large green dragon who once ruled over Sumeru. This dragon is afflicted by an ailment, and will be part of a three-phase battle. Iniquitous Baptist The Hydro and Anemo Hilichurl Rogues will also be introduced to the game.
The following new events will arrive in 3.6:

There will be six mini-games on offer, one for each of the six Darshans, showcasing their specialisms. Rewards will include Crown of Insight, Primogems, ascension and level-up materials, and a free Faruzan.

There will be a brand new area found deep in the deserts of Sumeru. According to HoYoVerse, this new area will consist of “wastelands and an oasis”, and was formerly a battleground of the Khaenri’ah cataclysm 500 years ago. In the oasis, players will find “Pari”, creatures that will help them traverse the area using their powers of flight.
