Lyney is the first five-star character from Genshin Impact's new region Fontaine.
He will debut with his twin sister Lynette and another 4-star character Ferminet in Genshin Impact 4.0.

Lyney will debut in Genshin Impact patch 4.0. The Pyro character was teased officially by Hoyoverse and it looks like he will make a debut with his twin Lynette. He is Fontaine’s first 5-star character and if you are looking for a Mono Pyro unit his gameplay might be right up your alley. The character kit information we have right now is based on leaks and is not indicative of the release state of the character so you might want to wait for an official announcement before deciding to pull him or not. Here is a rundown of Lyney’s abilities, constellations and passives in Genshin Impact 4.0.

Genshin Impact 4.0 Leaks: Lyney character kit 

Lyney is a 5-star bow user according to leaks and he will arrive with his signature weapon The First Great Magic, which boosts his damage based on how many party members you have with the same Elemental Type. He is the third Pyro bow user after Amber and Yoimiya but unlike Yoimiya who is designed to do massive Vaporize damage, you want to use Lyney in Mono Pyro teams.

Normal Attack

Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.

Plunging Attack

Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Charged Attack

Performs a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG.

Grin-Malkin Hat

  • Can taunt nearby opponents and attract their attacks. Each opponent can only be taunted by the Hat once every 5s.

  • The Hat’s endurance is a percentage of Lyney’s Max HP.

  • If destroyed, or if its duration expires, it will fire off a Pyrotechnic Strike at 1 nearby opponent, dealing Pyro DMG.

  • 1 Hat can exist at any given time.

Fundamental Force: Pneuma

At certain intervals, when the Prop Arrow hits an opponent, a Spiritbreath Thorn will descend on that opponent’s location, dealing Pneuma-aligned Pyro DMG.

Elemental Skill - Bewildering Light

Lyney does a flourish with his hat, unleashing a firework surprise. When used, he will clear all current Prop Surplus stacks and deal AoE Pyro DMG to opponents in front of him. DMG will be increased according to the stacks cleared, and this will also regenerate Lyney’s HP based on his Max HP.

Elemental Burst - Wonderous Trick: Miracle Parade

Lyney turns himself into a Grin-Malkin cat that can move around quickly. When the cat gets close to opponents, it will send flames falling down on them, dealing at most 1 instance of Pyro DMG to each opponent. When the duration ends or Lyney uses his Elemental Skill, he will dismiss the cat and ignite fireworks that deal AoE Pyro DMG, summon 1 Grin-Malkin hat, and grant himself 1 prop surplus stat.

Perilous Performance

If Lyney consumes HP via firing a Prop Arrow, the Grin-Malkin Hat summoned when this Prop Arrow hits will deal 80% more ATK as DMG.

Conclusive Ovation

When dealing DMG to opponents affected by Pyro, Lyney will receive the following buffs:

  • DMG increased by 60% at base.

  • Each Pyro party member other than Lyney will cause this effect to receive a further 20% bonus.

Lyney can gain a total of 100% increased DMG to opponents affected by Pyro in this way.

Trivial Observations

Displays the location of nearby resources unique to Fontaine on the mini-map.

Level 2 – Loquacious Lure: When Lyney is on the field, he will gain a stack of Crisp Focus every 2s. This will increase his CRIT DMG by 20%. Max 3 stacks. This effect will be canceled when Lyney leaves the field.

Level 3 – Prestidigitation: Increase the Level of Normal Attack: Card Force Translocation by 3. Maximum upgrade is Level 15.

Level 4 – Well-Versed, Well-Rehearsed: After an opponent is hit by Lyney’s Pyro Charged Attack, this opponent’s Pyro RES will be decreased by 25% for 6s.

Level 5 – To Pierce Enigma: Increase the Level of Wonderous Trick: Miracle Parade by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.

Level 6 – A Contrary Smile: When Lyney fires a Prop Arrow, he will fire a Pyrotechnic Strike: Reprised that will deal 100% of Pyrotechnic Strike’s DMG. This DMG is considered Charged Attack’s DMG.

That is all you need to know about Lyney in Genshin Impact. He is a very interesting character and may have synergy with Dehya and make Mono Pyro teams a lot more viable.
