TIED TOGETHER: Genshin Impact unveils Alternate Sprint improvements for version 3.0

One of the recent Sumeru teaser videos confirmed that Cyno is a new polearm character with electrovision. One of the most believable Genshin Impact Leaker, Ubatcha1, has described Cyno as a five-star version of popular Electro user Razor, who thrives on being the primary damage dealer in a team composition. In the early stages of the game, Razor was considered one of the best DPS characters out there Genshin Impact alongside Diluc, although he has a lower rarity. Previous leaks have revealed that his elemental ability allows him to dash forward and deal electric damage, similar to Xiao’s Lemniscatic Wind Cycling.

Cyno’s elemental burst imbues his polearm with electric damage and alters the effects of his elemental skill and basic attack. Its damage potential will appear to scale with Elemental Mastery, which seems to be very common with new Sumeru characters. When it comes to Cyno’s artifact choices, leaks suggest he could use Thundering Fury if the game doesn’t introduce a new set designed specifically for his DPS needs.

Another popular leaker, hxg_diluc, has revealed that in order to maximize its potential, Cyno should be placed in a team comp with Fischl, Zhongli, or Dendro characters. Fans speculate that he could be very squishy like Xiao, who needs a healer or a strong shield like Zhongli. Dendro characters allow Cyno to trigger two new elemental reactions called Quicken and Aggravate. Aggravate can be considered an underreaction to Quicken, as it can be triggered by dealing additional Electro damage to a character affected by Quicken.

Aggravate increases Electro’s damage potential and scales with Elemental Mastery, so Cyno could be a perfect fit for team builds that rely on this elemental response. Fischl’s main role on this team would probably be to serve as a battery for other party members. While both leakers are credible, the information should still be taken with a grain of salt as HoYoverse may make additional changes to the characters beforehand Genshin Impact Version 3.1 will be released on September 28th.

Genshin Impact is available now for mobile, PC, PS4, PS5 and a Nintendo Switch version is in development.
