Genshin Impact: Version 4.4 Beta Gives Leaks of Xianyun’s In-game Model, Animations, and More
With the release of Version 4,3 of Genshin Impact, the beta for 4.4 has also started. As it has always been, this means that players will soon get sneak peeks into the next version via leaks. And leaks from credible sources have surfaced with details about Xianyun and her signature weapon. These leaks shed light on her elemental abilities, kit, and gameplay. In this article, we look into the latest leaks, providing an in-depth look at what players can expect from Xianyun in the upcoming update.
Xianyun's Release and Leaked Details
The Lantern Rite update is set to launch on January 31, 2024, and Xianyun will be a central figure in this Liyue-centric patch. This aligns with the game's tradition of releasing a new version every six weeks. As the current 4.3 version extends until the end of January, fans can expect the arrival of Xianyun and the festivities of Lantern Rite.
Leaked images and footage have unveiled Xianyun wielding the "Echo of the Crane's Call." The weapon's design resembles a traditional Chinese Fan with bold ornamentations. It sports an emerald green color scheme that complements Xianyun's aesthetic. The weapon pays homage to the Adeptus theme with crane and cloud motifs, adding a touch of cultural flair to the game.
Weapon Stats and Effects
As per leaked information shared by @Razor_Language, Xianyun's Signature weapon has impressive stats, with a base ATK of 741 and a secondary stat of 16.5% ATK. What sets this 5-star weapon apart is its unique passive effect tailored for Xianyun's playstyle. After executing a Plunge attack, the entire party receives a Plunge DMG buff of 28% for 20 seconds. Additionally, when an ally performs a Plunge attack, Xianyun regenerates 2.5 energy every 0.7 seconds. This synergy aligns with previous leaks suggesting strong compatibility with Xiao.
Leaked Gameplay and Elemental Abilities
She is an Anemo character and wields a Catalyst, allowing players to harness the power of wind in combat. Xianyun's Elemental Skill enables short jumps, providing her with a unique aerial advantage. During flight, she can execute plunging attacks, showcased in leaked gameplay.
Leaks also suggest that Xianyun possesses team-wide healing abilities, integrated into her Elemental Burst. Additionally, her leaked kit is further supported by leaked Spiral Abyss buffs. The leaked kit also hints at crowd-control capabilities, drawing comparisons to Sucrose but with a higher AoE (Area of Effect).
