The beta for version 4.4 of Genshin Impact has been going for a while and we have gotten details of Gaming's abilities. According to leaks, Gaming will be one of the best if not the best 4 star character's as a DPS. His unique plunge attack focused abilities have intrigued players who might now want to pull for him. Here's a comprehensive breakdown of what we know so far about Gaming in Genshin Impact.
Gaming's Unique Playstyle and Abilities
Gaming stands out as a Plunging Attack Damage Dealer, a rarity in Genshin Impact. As a Claymore user, Gaming's leaked abilities set him up to be a bruiser type fighter. With a kit that caters for both offense and defense, he will most likely be quite fun to play. Early calculations of his damage put him very high in the meta, competing with 5 star characters.
Elemental Skill: Bestial Ascent
Gaming utilizes the Wushou arts to execute a forward pounce, launching into a powerful Plunging Attack named Charmed Cloudstrider, dealing Pyro damage. This attack's strength surpasses regular Plunging Attacks and cannot be overwritten by other elements.
Using this skill causes Gaming to lose 15% of his Max HP, although his HP cannot drop below 10% through this method.
Elemental Burst: Suanni's Gilded Dance
When Gaming activates his Elemental Burst, he adopts the Wushou Stance, applying Pyro to himself while restoring 30% of his Max HP. He summons Suanni Man Chai, dealing AoE Pyro damage before returning to Gaming and resetting the cooldown for his Elemental Skill.
During his Burst's duration, certain conditions enable Gaming to summon Suanni Man Chai again.
Passive Talents and Constellations
Gaming's passive talents contribute to his survivability and damage potential. Dance of Amity allows him to recover HP after executing his Charmed Cloudstrider. Air of Prosperity incentivizes maintaining high HP levels by either increasing damage or Incoming Healing Bonus based on Gaming's HP level.
Gaming's constellations increase healing and damage bonuses, further complementing his role in combat.
Leaks of Gaming's abilities and constellations confirm his Pyro element and Claymore weapon. But specific details of his kit is still subject to change till official release.
While the exact release date remains unconfirmed, Gaming is anticipated to arrive alongside the Version 4.4 update, scheduled around 1st February 2024.
