So, why are we are talking about the different regions in Genshin Impact?. The answer to that question is simple. Each region or Nation in Genshin Impact has its own Element, Archon/God, Ideal, and Governing Body.

Dendro is an element that signifies the Sumeru Nation of Genshin Impact. And, to talk about characters with Dendro elemental abilities we must learn a little about the different regions of the game.

As said earlier, all the regions in Genshin Impact are inspired by real-world, different countries, and their culture. And, as per current information, the Sumeru region is based on India and the Indian culture. Here is a list of all the regions in Genshin Impact, along with their meaning, element, and real-world counterparts.

  • Mondstadt –> Meaning “Moon City” (German, Anemo)
  • Liyue –> Meaning “Contract” (Chinese Mandarin, Geo)
  • Inazuma –> Meaning “Lightning” (Japanese, Electro)
  • Sumeru –> Meaning “Beautiful Mount Meru” (Indian, Dendro)
  • Fontaine –> Meaning “Fountain” (French, Hydro)

We may see them being added to the game as playable characters in the near future when the Sumeru region is made available. However, as of now, we don’t have an official list of playable characters that use Dendro elemental abilities.

  1. In my country, Indonesia, there’s a mountain called Semeru, and we have so many rainforests.
    The current npc characters’ name from Sumeru also so much alike like poeple in my country. So i have a high expectation that it’ll be based on my country. Lol.
