Cloud Retainer, rumored to be the game's newest playable unit, has been a prominent figure in the Liyue arc, guiding players through Archon Quests, Character Quests, and different events. The community is finally obtaining potentially genuine information on her kit after nearly three years. 

As anticipation grows for Cloud Retainer's possible appearance in Genshin Impact 4.4, players are eagerly anticipating the beta release to confirm and explore the complexities of her skills. Until then, the community is engaged in heated debates, theory-crafting, and sharing their hopes for this next character.

Leaked Abilities Overview for Cloud Retainer

  1. Elemental Skill (E): Cloud Retainer possesses a unique three-tap charge on her Elemental Skill, allowing short jumps and limited aerial mobility. This adds an interesting dynamic to her playstyle, potentially influencing exploration and combat scenarios.

  2. Elemental Burst (Q): Her Elemental Burst offers a healing aspect, emphasizing her supportive role. Scaling off the ATK stat, it provides crowd control effects in her talents, making her a versatile addition to different team compositions.

  3. Potential Xiao Support: Leaks suggest Cloud Retainer may function as a support for characters like Xiao, providing buffs to Plunge and Anemo attacks. This could open up new team synergies, especially for players fond of the adept polearm user.

Potential Cloud Retainer Flying Capability

One of the most debated aspects of Cloud Retainer's leaks is her supposed flying capability. While some early information hinted at the potential for flying, subsequent discussions and translations have created uncertainty. Many in the community had hoped for a Quality of Life (QoL) feature for exploration, but the likelihood of this remains uncertain.

Community Reactions 

As with any leak, the Genshin Impact community has been vocal in expressing both excitement and skepticism. Some players eagerly anticipate the arrival of Cloud Retainer, while others remain cautious, noting the ever-changing nature of pre-release information.
