Ganyu -&nbsp;Genshin Impact


Ganyu is set to return to Genshin Impact's event banner soon along with Nahida and Nilou.
She is still one of the best on-field units but her playstyle might not be for everyone.
Players may want to wish on Nahida's banner instead as the Dendro Archon can be more valuable on a newer account.

Ganyu is set to make a return to Genshin Impact for her rerun in patch 3.6, according to leaks, and we might also see the return of Nahida and Cyno. If you have been waiting for a Ganyu rerun, you will get the chance to pull for her very soon if the leaks are accurate. Here’s everything you need to know about Ganyu’s talents, constellations and passives.

Genshin Impact 3.6 Ganyu: Should you pull? 

Ganyu is competing for your primogems with yet another heavy hitter, Nahida. If you already have Ayaka who is available right now on the banner, you might want to go for her instead and pull for Nahida next patch. Ganyu is a very strong Cryo DPS and makes overworld exploration a breeze thanks to the ridiculous multipliers on her Charged Shots. She is a great pickup and worth the Primogems. But her playstyle is something not everyone enjoys so you should try her out in the Test Run before deciding.

Genshin Impact 3.6 Ganyu: Talents

Ganyu performs a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, an icy aura will accumulate on the arrowhead before the arrow is fired. Has different effects based on how long the energy has been charged:

  • Charge Level 1: Fires off an icy arrow that deals Cryo DMG.

  • Charge Level 2: Fires off a Frostflake Arrow that deals Cryo DMG. The Frostflake Arrow blooms after hitting its target, dealing AoE Cryo DMG.

Elemental Skill - Trail of the Qilin: Leaving a single Ice Lotus behind, Ganyu dashes backward, shunning all impurity and dealing AoE Cryo DMG.

Ice Lotus

  • Continuously taunts surrounding opponents, attracting them to attack it.

  • Endurance scales based on Ganyu's Max HP.

  • Blooms profusely when destroyed or once its duration ends, dealing AoE Cryo DMG.

  • Cooldown: 10 seconds

Elemental Burst - Celestial Shower

Coalesces atmospheric frost and snow to summon a Sacred Cryo Pearl that exorcises evil.

During its ability duration, the Sacred Cryo Pearl will continuously rain down shards of ice, striking opponents within an AoE and dealing Cryo DMG.

  • Duration: 15 seconds

  • Cooldown: 15 seconds

  • Energy Cost: 60

Genshin Impact 3.6 Ganyu - Constellations

C1 - Dew-Drinker: Charge Level 2 Frostflake Arrows or Frostflake Arrow Blooms decrease opponents' Cryo RES by 15% for 6s upon hit. A hit also regenerates 2 Energy for Ganyu. This effect can only occur once per Charge Level 2 Frostflake Arrow, regardless if Frostflake Arrow itself or its Bloom hits the target.

C3 - Cloud-Strider: Increases the Level of Celestial Shower by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

C4 - Westward Sojourn: Opponents standing within the AoE of Celestial Shower take increased DMG. This effect strengthens over time.

  • Increased DMG taken begins at 5% and increases by 5% every 3 seconds, up to a maximum of 25%.

  • The effect lingers for 3s after the opponent leaves the AoE.

C5 - The Merciful: Increases the Level of Trail of the Qilin by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

C6 - The Clement: Using Trail of the Qilin causes the next Frostflake Arrow shot within 30s to not require charging.

Genshin Impact 3.6 Ganyu: Passives

Undivided Heart: After firing a Frostflake Arrow, the CRIT Rate of subsequent Frostflake Arrows and their resulting bloom effects is increased by 20% for 5s.

Harmony Between Heaven and Earth: Celestial Shower grants a 20% Cryo DMG Bonus to active party members in the AoE.
