And leaks from various sources provide a sneak peek into her abilities, talents, and constellations. According to the recent leaks, Xianyun's unique kit seems to position her as a DPS and healer hybrid. The dual nature of her abilities will enable players to build her in different ways.

Xianyun's (Cloud Retainer) Leaked Abilities
Xianyun is set to make her debut in version 4.4, coinciding with Liyue's Lantern Rite Festival. As one of Liyue's prominent Adepti (Cloudd Retainer), she brings a unique kit that leans towards a hybrid DPS/healer role. Her abilities allow her to switch between two forms, offering versatility in combat. Another notable reveal from the leaks is the increase in gliding speed, a first for Genshin Impact characters. This has sparked discussions about her impact on exploration and whether it will make Xianyun a staple in many players' teams.
Elemental Skill and Burst:
Crane Cloud State: Xianyun enters a special state, allowing her to perform a special technique two times. The technique deals Anemo damage in an area of effect (AOE), and its damage range increases with each use. Activation on the ground is necessary to enter the state.
Burst: Xianyun's burst deals Anemo damage in an AOE while healing the entire party. The "Bamboo Star" follows an active character, increasing their plunging attack damage and jump height. The Bamboo Star has eight charges, consuming one with each plunging attack.
Talents and Constellations:
Talent 1: After performing three techniques in the skill, the AOE will attract enemies.
Talent 2: Xianyun's burst increases Plunge damage for allies, scaling off her ATK stat.
C1: Increases the number of skill uses by 1.
C2: After using the skill, attack power increases by 20% for 15 seconds, scaling up to 306% of Xianyun's ATK.
C4: After using the technique three times, Xianyun heals party members.
C6: Increases Crit Damage based on the number of times the technique has been used. The talent won't go into cooldown after casting the skill with layers from the burst.
Player Reactions and Speculations:
The Reddit/X/Twitter posts of Xianyun's kit leaks are filled with speculation about Xianyun's potential. Some players are finding her kit to be a bit complex. And speculate that Xianyun requires careful management of her abilities for optimal performance. Others express curiosity about her viability as a main DPS character, especially with the potential synergy with Kagura's Verity.
Some comments also raise concerns about the efficiency of her healing compared to other characters like Jean. The comments question the impact of Xianyun's healing and whether she can serve as a reliable primary healer.
