Cyno - Genshin Impact


Cyno is an Electro DPS unit that works in both Aggravate and Hyperbloom teams.
His playstyle is similar to that of Xiao's but is more reliant on reactions than raw Electro damage.
Leaks suggest that he will have a rerun before Fontaine drops later this year.

Cyno is an Electro DPS unit in Genshin Impact that works in Hypercarry and Dendro-based reaction teams. He is a fun unit to play and can be worth your consideration the next time his banner shows up. If you are planning on building him or simply want to check out his kit, here is a breakdown of Cyno’s Talents, Constellations and Passives.

Genshin Impact Cyno: Should you pull?

Cyno is a solid unit and is expected to have his rerun in 3.7 or 3.8 according to speculations. If you have the right supports for him, you can consider spending your Primogems on Cyno’s banner. His Aggravate teams are very strong and can clear content with ease.

Genshin Impact Cyno: Talents

Elemental Skill - Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer: Performs a swift thrust, dealing Electro DMG to opponents along the path.

When Cyno is under the Pactsworn Pathclearer state triggered by Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness, he will instead unleash a Mortuary Rite that deals thunderous AoE Electro DMG and extends the duration of Pactsworn Pathclearer.

Elemental Burst - Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness: Calls upon a divine spirit to indwell him, morphing into the Pactsworn Pathclearer.

Pactsworn Pathclearer

  • Cyno's Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be converted to Electro DMG that cannot be overridden.

  • Cyno's Elemental Mastery and resistance to interruption will increase, and he gains immunity to Electro-Charged DMG.

  • This effect will be canceled when Cyno leaves the field and lasts a maximum of 18s.

  • Energy Cost: 80

  • Cooldown: 20 seconds

  • Base Duration: 10 seconds

Genshin Impact Cyno: Constellations 

C1 - Ordinance: Unceasing Vigil: After using Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness, Cyno's Normal Attack SPD will be increased by 20% for 10s. If the Judication effect of his Passive Talent Featherfall Judgment is triggered during Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer, the duration of this increase will be refreshed. You need to unlock the Passive Talent "Featherfall Judgment."

C2- Ceremony: Homecoming of Spirits: When Cyno's Normal Attacks hit opponents, his Electro DMG Bonus will increase by 10% for 4s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.1s. Max 5 stacks.

C3 - Precept: Lawful Enforcer: Increases the Level of Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

C4- Austerity: Forbidding Guard: When Cyno is in the Pactsworn Pathclearer state triggered by Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness, after he triggers Electro-Charged, Superconduct, Overloaded, Quicken, Aggravate, Hyperbloom, or an Electro Swirl reaction, he will restore 3 Elemental Energy for all nearby party members (except himself.) This effect can occur 5 times within one use of Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness.

C5 - Funerary Rite: The Passing of Starlight: Increases the Level of Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

C6 - Raiment: Just Scales: After using Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness or triggering the Judication effect of the Passive Talent "Featherfall Judgment," Cyno will gain 4 stacks of the "Day of the Jackal" effect. When he hits opponents with Normal Attacks, he will consume 1 stack of "Day of the Jackal" to fire off one Duststalker Bolt. "Day of the Jackal" lasts for 8s. Max 8 stacks. It will be canceled once Pactsworn Pathclearer ends. A maximum of 1 Duststalker Bolt can be unleashed this way every 0.4s. You must first unlock the Passive Talent "Featherfall Judgment."

Genshin Impact Cyno: Passives

Featherfall Judgment: When Cyno is in the Pactsworn Pathclearer state activated by Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness, Cyno will enter the Endseer stance at intervals. If he activates Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer while affected by this stance, he will activate the Judication effect, increasing the DMG of this Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer by 35%, and firing off 3 Duststalker Bolts that deal 100% of Cyno's ATK as Electro DMG. Duststalker Bolt DMG is considered Elemental Skill DMG.

Authority Over the Nine Bows: Cyno's DMG values will be increased based on his Elemental Mastery as follows:

  • Pactsworn Pathclearer's Normal Attack DMG is increased by 150% of his Elemental Mastery.

  • Duststalker Bolt DMG from his Passive Talent Featherfall Judgment is increased by 250% of his Elemental Mastery.

The Gift of Silence: Gains 25% more rewards when dispatched on a Sumeru Expedition for 20 hours.
