Alhaitham Banner Release Date and Speculation
Alhaitham’s banner is expected to make its debut alongside the Genshin Impact 3.4 update, which is set to launch on January 17. As the first five-star Dendro character, Alhaitham’s arrival has generated significant excitement among players eager to harness the power of this unique element.
Alhaitham’s combat prowess is evident in his abilities, starting with his normal attack, “Abductive Reasoning.” This skill allows him to perform up to five rapid strikes, showcasing his swift and precise swordplay.
His charged attack consumes stamina to unleash two rapid sword strikes, providing versatility in combat scenarios. Alhaitham’s plunging attack allows him to plunge from mid-air, striking the ground and dealing AoE damage to enemies, adding an aerial advantage to his combat repertoire.
Universality: Alhaitham Elaboration on Form
Alhaitham’s elemental skill, “Universality: An Elaboration on Form,” sees him rush forward, dealing Dendro damage to nearby enemies upon the rush’s conclusion. This action results in creating a “Chisel-Light Mirror,” a crucial component of his combat strategy.
Players can enter aiming mode during this skill to adjust the direction of Alhaitham’s rush attack, enhancing precision and targeting. The Chisel-Light Mirror generated during this skill converts Alhaitham’s normal, charged, and plunging attacks into Dendro damage. When these attacks hit enemies, the mirrors release a projection attack that deals AoE Dendro damage based on the number of mirrors present. However, these mirrors will disappear when Alhaitham leaves the battlefield.
Alhaitham’s elemental burst, “Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena,” creates a Particular Binding Field and deals AoE Dendro damage. Notably, if mirrors are present on the field, they are consumed to increase the amount of damage dealt, making this a pivotal ability in his kit.
Unlocking Alhaitham’s Potential: Passive Talents
Alhaitham possesses several passive talents that further enhance his capabilities. “Law of Reductive Overdetermination” provides him with a 10% chance to receive double the product when crafting weapon ascension materials, offering a valuable advantage in character progression.
The talent “Four-Casual Correction” enables Alhaitham’s charged or plunging attacks to generate a Chisel-Light Mirror upon hitting enemies. This can be triggered once every 12 seconds, ensuring a steady supply of mirrors for his abilities.
“Mysteries Laid Bare” amplifies the impact of Alhaitham’s Elemental Mastery by increasing the damage dealt by Projection Attacks and Elemental Burst. Each point of Elemental Mastery boosts the damage by 0.09%, with the potential for a maximum damage increase of 90%.
Unveiling the Power of Constellations
Alhaitham’s constellations offer intriguing enhancements to his abilities and open new avenues for strategizing in combat. “Intuition” decreases Alhaitham’s Elemental Skill cooldown by one second when a Projection Attack hits an enemy, presenting an opportunity for more frequent skill usage.
“Debate” boosts Alhaitham’s Elemental Mastery by 50 for eight seconds when he generates a mirror, with a maximum of four stacks. This dynamic effect enhances his overall elemental proficiency and synergy in team compositions.
“Negation” enhances Alhaitham’s Elemental Skill level by three, further fortifying this essential aspect of his kit.
“Elucidation” creates a beneficial connection within the team, as Alhaitham’s Elemental Burst increases the Elemental Mastery of all other nearby party members by 30 for 15 seconds when mirrors are consumed. This amplifies the overall elemental potential of the entire team, making Alhaitham a valuable asset in group encounters.
“Sagacity” strengthens Alhaitham’s Elemental Burst by three, significantly enhancing the damage output and utility of this impactful ability.
“Structuration” introduces a unique mechanic, generating three mirrors after the Elemental Burst is used, regardless of the number of mirrors consumed. If the maximum number of mirrors is reached, Alhaitham gains a 10% Dendro damage bonus for five seconds, along with a 10% boost to the critical rate and a 70% increase in critical damage. This constellation encourages players to manage mirrors effectively and maximize their benefits in combat.
With Alhaitham’s banner set to arrive in the Genshin Impact 3.4 update, players can look forward to harnessing the power of Dendro with this formidable character. His versatile skill set, unique mechanics, and strategic constellations make him a promising addition to any adventurer’s party, promising exciting new possibilities for team compositions and combat strategies.
