Arlecchino is a potential playable character in Genshin Impact. Fans have been anticipating and speculating about her for months. The first leaks that came out stated that she would be released in version 4.6 as a 5-star Pyro unit with a Polearm as her weapon. Recent leaks from Uncle K have revealed information regarding her prospective signature weapon and unique ability, specifically her ability to change her Polearm into a Scythe during a Charged Attack.

The Anticipation Leading Upto Arlecchino

Arlecchino is one of the Fatui Harbingers and first appeared in the "A Winter Night's Lazzo" trailer in 2022. She has also played a significant role as the main antagonist in Genshin Impact's Fontaine storyline, making her a fan-favorite character in the community. With the Fontaine arc wrapping up, fans expect Arlecchino to join the pool of playable characters in the upcoming months, following in the footsteps of other Harbingers like Wanderer and Tartaglia.

Multiple in-game cutscenes have confirmed that Arlecchino carries a Pyro Vision or a Pyro Illusion, allowing her to control this popular element. Credible leakers have hinted at what the playable version of this character might have to offer, including the ability to change her signature sword into a scythe while performing a Charged Attack.

Leaks Suggest Arlecchino Can Transform Her Weapon Into a Scythe

According to the leaks, Arlecchino can transform her signature Polearm into a Scythe while performing a Charged Attack. This unique feature of her weapon is said to be tailored specifically for her, and the Scythe's appearance remains unchanged when used by other characters, suggesting that this effect is exclusive to Arlecchino herself. However, there is some speculation that the appearance change of the Polearm could also be tied to Arlecchino's special skill, though this has not been confirmed.

Alternate Form and Combat Style

In addition to the Scythe transformation, there are also leaks suggesting that Arlecchino will have the ability to switch to dual blades during combat, similar to Childe's Melee Stance. This alternate form is expected to allow her to generate large DPS numbers without the need for any reactions, making her a potentially powerful damage dealer.

Release Date and Drip Marketing

While the exact release date of Arlecchino in Genshin Impact 4.6 has yet to be confirmed, speculation based on past announcements suggests that players can expect her drip marketing to begin on 11 March 2024. However, as with all leaks, this information should be taken with a grain of salt, as details may change before the official release.
