Althaitham - Genshin Impact



Genshin Impact: Althaitham Talents, Constellations and Passives

Updated On: 
Althaitham is five-star Dendro DPS unit in Genshin Impact who can act as an on-field carry in elemental reaction teams.
He works well in Hyperbloom and Bloom teams but he requires large amounts of field time to be effective.
Nahida might be a more flexible unit to pull for if you also need access to off-field Dendro damage.

Althaitham is a powerful Dendro carry who can be a worthwhile pull for your account. But you should pull for him only if you like his playstyle. The Dendro Archon Nahida might be a better character to have for your account if you do not have her as she can be both an off-field and on-field character depending on the teams you play her in.

Consider checking out Alhaitham’s playstyle in the Test Run when he is available before making your decision. Here's everything you need to know about Alhaitham's Talents, Constellations and Passives in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact Althaitham: Talents

Elemental Skill - Universality: An Elaboration on Form: Rushes forward, dealing Dendro DMG to nearby opponents when the rush ends, causing a Chisel-Light Mirror to form.

Holding this skill will cause it to behave differently.


Enters Aiming Mode to adjust the direction of Alhaitham's rush attack.

Chisel-Light Mirror

When this skill is unleashed, Alhaitham will generate 1 Chisel-Light Mirror. If there are no Mirrors at this time, he will generate 1 additional Mirror. Chisel-Light Mirrors will have the following properties:

When he possesses Chisel-Light Mirrors, Alhaitham's Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be converted to Dendro DMG. This cannot be overridden. When attacks of the aforementioned kind hit opponents, the Chisel-Light Mirrors will unleash a Projection Attack that deals AoE Dendro DMG based on the number of Mirrors on the field.

  • A total of 3 Chisel-Light Mirrors can exist at once.

  • The Chisel-Light Mirrors will disappear one after the other over time, and will all disappear when Alhaitham leaves the field.

Elemental Burst - Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena: Creates a Particular Binding Field and deals multiple instances of AoE Dendro DMG.

If Chisel-Light Mirrors exist when this ability is unleashed, all such Mirrors will be consumed and increase the number of DMG instances dealt. 2 seconds after this ability is unleashed, if 0/1/2/3 Mirrors were consumed, Alhaitham will generate 3/2/1/0 new Mirrors in turn.

  • Energy Cost: 70

  • Cooldown: 8 seconds

Genshin Impact Althaitham: Constellations

C2 - Debate: When Alhaitham generates a Chisel-Light Mirror, his Elemental Mastery will be increased by 50 for 8 seconds, max 4 stacks. Each stack's duration is counted independently. This effect can be triggered even when the maximum number of Chisel-Light Mirrors has been reached.

C3 - Negation: Increases the Level of Universality: An Elaboration on Form by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

C4 - Elucidation: When Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena is unleashed, the following effects will become active based on the number of Chisel-Light Mirrors consumed and created this time around:

  • Each Mirror consumed will increase the Elemental Mastery of all other nearby party members by 30 for 15s.

  • Each Mirror generated will grant Alhaitham a 10% Dendro DMG Bonus for 15s.

The pre-existing duration of the aforementioned effects will be cleared if you use Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena again while they are in effect.

C5 - Sagacity: Increases the Level of Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

C6 - Structuration: Alhaitham gains the following effects:

2 seconds after Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena is unleashed, he will generate 3 Chisel-Light Mirrors regardless of the number of mirrors consumed. If Alhaitham generates Chisel-Light Mirrors when their numbers have already maxed out, his CRIT Rate and CRIT DMG will increase by 10% and 70% respectively for 6s. If this effect is triggered again during its initial duration, the duration remaining will be increased by 6s.

Mysteries Laid Bare: Each point of Alhaitham's Elemental Mastery will increase the DMG dealt by Projection Attacks and Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena by 0.1%. The DMG of both aforementioned abilities can be increased by a maximum of 100% this way.
