Genshin Impact Leak Reveals Chiori's Potential Kit and Abilities
Genshin Impact's spotlight now falls on Chiori, an upcoming Geo user speculated to debut in version 4.5. Expected to make her debut in version 4.5, Chiori is speculated to be a Geo character and is a renowned fashion designer from Inazuma. As with any leaks, players must approach the information with a hint of skepticism until officially confirmed. Let's take a look at the leaked abilities and kit of Chiori in Genshin Impact.
Chiori's Leaked Elemental Skill
According to recent leaks, Chiori's Elemental Skill summons a scissor that cuts and groups enemies. This skill, with both Press and Hold variations, allegedly groups enemies in a straight line, dealing Geo damage. The skill's Press version generates four to five energy particles, while holding it may increase the area of effect.
Chiori's Leaked Elemental Burst
Chiori's Elemental Burst continues the scissor motif. Using this ability summons three small scissors that deal area-of-effect (AoE) damage to nearby enemies. The burst concludes with a mysterious floating scissor, the exact effect of which remains undisclosed. The leaked animation suggests an appealing burst that showcases Chiori's unique combat style.
Speculations About Chiori's Role and Rarity
While Chiori's role in Genshin Impact is speculated to be that of an off-field Support/sub-DPS unit, the leaks have raised questions about her rarity. Initial rumors suggest that Chiori would be a new five-star character, adding to the roster's elite ranks. Some hopeful players want her to be a four-star unit available during the upcoming Lantern Rite Festival in version 4.4, although this remains uncertain.
Fashionable Geo Gameplay and Team Synergy
Chiori's background as a fashion designer and her affiliation with the Geo element adds an intriguing layer to her character. With the recent shift in the meta away from Geo, Chiori's potential kit and abilities might breathe new life into this elemental affinity. The leaks hint at her being a good teammate for Albedo, suggesting potential synergies with existing characters.
Chiori Release and Speculations
Chiori is speculated to make her debut in Genshin Impact version 4.5, potentially being the only new playable character in this update. The leaks align with the theme, as version 4.5 is anticipated to host a major Mondstadt festival event and may include a rerun banner for Albedo.
