Xianyun Receives Further Changes in the Genshin Impact 4.4 Beta
Xianyun has received further changes in the latest beta for version 4.4 of Genshin Impact. During her test phase, Xianyun has received many changes to her kit with varying community reaction. The latest changes in the beta include some adjustments to her constellation in the form of buffs. And some nerfs to the other parts of her kit. Read below for a brief overview into the latest changes to Xianyun in Genshin Impact's 4.4 beta.
Overview of the Leaked Xianyun Changes
The leaked information hints at significant alterations to Xianyun's kit. While her healing capabilities with her Burst nerfed , several parts of her skillset got buffed. Some leaks point towards improvements in her Constellations. This would contribute to a more balanced and potentially improved character.
According to details gathered from leaks, Xianyun's Elemental Skill, specifically the damage from the third usage of the Driftcloud Wave in Cloud Retainer's Skill, has increased from 547% to 607%. This change indicates a positive change to her offensive capabilities.
But the leaks also show a significant nerf to Xianyun's Burst ability in terms of initial healing. The healing multiplier was reduced from 221.2% ATK + 1694 to 165% ATK + 1271. Still, in an attempt to balance this reduction, the continuous healing from her talent was reportedly increased from 66.4% ATK + 508 to 77% ATK + 593.
Noteworthy Changes in Constellations
The leaks also show changes to Xianyun's passive abilities and Constellations. Her Plunging Attack shockwave DMG bonus from the A4 passive has risen from 180% of her ATK to 200% of her ATK. Additionally, her second Constellation, which boosts her A4 passive, appears to have increased from 360% to 400%.
In response to these leaks, the Genshin Impact community has expressed mixed sentiments. There are some users who view these changes as an upgrade for Xianyun, making her a more formidable healer and Plunging Attack support. But others remain cautious due to her kit being in the developmental phase. Players expect that further changes might occur before her official release.
The discussions also touch on Xianyun's potential synergies with other characters, particularly mentioning her expected role as a support unit for characters like Xiao and Diluc.
Since these leaks are subject to change before the character's official launch, players should approach this information with caution. Hoyoverse often fine-tunes character abilities and stats based on player feedback and internal testing, making it essential to await official announcements.
