Leaks of the upcoming Genshin Impact 4.7 update suggest that Arlecchino will receive a nerf to her energy regeneration. The leak came from a reliable source known as on Reddit and it implies that Arlecchino's particle generation cooldown will be increased from 0.5 seconds to 1.5 seconds in the new update. This change is expected to impact Arlecchino's gameplay, particularly in terms of her energy management and ability to use her elemental burst. Here’s everything you need to know.

How Does the Nerf Impact Arlecchino's Playstyle?

According to analysis from players, the nerf is unlikely to significantly alter the way Arlecchino is played. Her typical rotation involves using her elemental skill, burst, and skill in sequence to generate two sets of particles. Even with the increased cooldown, players can still achieve this rotation due to the long animation of her elemental burst.

Previously, Arlecchino did not rely heavily on energy regeneration, as her elemental burst was primarily used for healing purposes. However, with the new cooldown increase, players may need to adjust her artifact build to include some energy regeneration to ensure her elemental burst is readily available for use.

Additionally, the higher cooldown means Arlecchino will no longer be as effective at providing energy for off-field characters, such as Xiangling and Thoma. Despite these changes, most players are unlikely to notice a significant difference in Arlecchino's performance.

Speculations on the Reason Behind the Nerf

While the leak suggests a nerf to Arlecchino's energy regeneration, players are speculating about the underlying reasons for this adjustment. Some believe it could be related to an upcoming permanent domain in the 4.7 update, which may introduce gameplay modifiers that require adjustments to Arlecchino's kit.

Others speculate that the nerf could be a preemptive measure to balance Arlecchino for future content, such as the rumored Imaginarium Theater. This new endgame mode is rumored to feature randomized modifiers that could benefit from a slight adjustment to Arlecchino's abilities.

As with all leaks, this information should be taken with a grain of salt until officially confirmed. The full extent of Arlecchino's changes and the impact on gameplay will be clearer upon the release of the Genshin Impact 4.7 update. Stay tuned for further updates and announcements for version 4.7 of Genshin Impact.
