Happy New Year captains, and welcome to Honkai Impact 3 - Version 3.7 Overview! Well, it's not exactly new year, but this is our first patch in 2020. Yay~ There's a lot of new content in this patch, and this article will give you an overview of them. As always, just click the links below to jump to any topic.

Let's get started, Honkers!
Azure Empyrea (AE) is Fu Hua's S-rank awakening battlesuit of Phoenix. AE is a powerful all elemental support unit. Her Basic ATK deals Fire DMG and stores Yin (ULT button) or Yang (ATK button) charge. Once she has 3 charges, using Combo ATK will consume the charges, applying various effects according to the Yin Yang mix.
Her ultimate Empyrean Sunder costs 125 SP, and takes elemental support to a whole new level.
Elemental Breach is a very rare and powerful damage multiplier. Only Herrscher of Reason (HoR) had this before. Captains, you must get Azure Empyrea on the bridge!
Other Valkyrie Buffs
Book of Fuxi is the new S-rank ELF, created by Fuxi herself to assist Fu Hua. This sleepy girl riding a ball has many powerful skills, including:
ELF Skills and Talent Bank have been reworked into the new skill tree system. Every ELF now has its own skill tree tailored according to its strength and playstyle. This means you don't need to change that SP skill back and forth ELFs anymore. Furthermore, the new skill tree makes ELFs much stronger than before!
Fists - NEBULOUS DUALITY [Dps, Support, Utility]
Nebulous Duality is AE's signature weapon, providing TDM boost to allies. It also gives SP recovery and ATK Speed, which can benefit any Fu Hua character.
Stigmata - FU HUA: MARGRAVE [Support]
Fu Hua : Margrave is the signature stigmata of AE, providing all elemental and TDM buffs for the team. The bottom piece makes enemies in an area take 14-20% more damage for 15s, which has less multiplier but longer duration and multiple targets compared to Newton B. Keep in mind you need at least two pieces to activate Fyreheart state to get the full potential of this set.
Blade - RUINOUS SAKURA [Dps, Utility]
Ruinous Sakura is the PRI-ARM breakthrough of Demonblade - Florid Sakura. On Flame Sakitama (FS), this sword gives all the benefits of original Florid but with bigger numbers. Also, the second active unleashes a powerful fire slash! A must-have for both dps and support purposes!
Pistols - TRANQUIL RHAPSODY [Dps]
Tranquil Rhapsody is the PRI-ARM breakthrough of Tranquil Arias, specialized for Sixth Serenade (6S). Its active skill allows her to enter Nightwalk mode, recover 600 Nachtsicht meters, and unleash Combo ATK without consuming meter.
During v3.7, Ai-chan will open special reversion event for Tranquil Rhapsody, allowing you to revert it back to the 5* weapon used, along with all the materials spent.
These are the equipment added to Elite Works in 3.7. I recommend you to get any missing gear for Herrscher of the Void (HoV), or get Tranquil Arias if you haven't owned one, since it is a very strong weapon.
Knight Pass owners will get Rare Outfit Option, while Paladin Pass owners will get Celestial Luster Ribbon and 10 extra Mind Stones.
Go on an adventure with Fu Hua and Book of Fuxi to defeat the Nian beast. Shooting Minigame from Winter Rhapsody has returned with all-new features - environment destruction, gun upgrades and chibi buffs! Shoot the enemies and leave no evidence behind!
Event rewards include DJ Peach Sanctuary outfit and Seele: Doubled Bliss stigmata
During v3.7, pull any Supply using crystal or Supply Cards. Reach a certain spend milestone and you will be rewarded with S-rank Blank Fragment! When you reach 30,000 crystal worth spent, you will also receive Stygian Nymph outfit - Mirrored Flourishes!
