What We Have Known about Cyno in Genshin Impact

3.0 roles have been revealed, the new characters to look forward to in 3.1 are Electro Polearm Cyno, Hydro Sword Nilou and Hydro Polearm Candace. While Cyno will have a competitive banner to compete with him, the hype surrounding him seems to be the most popular of the three right now. Legend has it that Cyno was known as General Mahamatra, who was in charge of any disciplinary action required by Sumeru's Akademiya.

Let’s have a look at Cyno’s ability first. (The following content was moved from leaker, so it’s possible to change a little bit till it appears formally.)

Normal Attack: Invoker’s Spear

The Charged and Plunging Attacks are similar to other Polearm users. Cyno's Elemental Skill is called Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer, which will have Cyno perform a thrust that deals Electro damage to all enemies in its path. Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness is the elemental burst and will involve Cyno becoming possessed by a spirit and entering a form called Pactsworn Pathclearer.


Cyno has three passive talents, one of which is non-combat in The Gift Of Silence, which will give players 25% more rewards if Cyno is dispatched on a 20-hour Expedition in Sumeru. The first combat passive is Featherfall Judgement, which will make Cyno enter a stance at times during Pactsworn Pathclearer. If the Elemental Skill is used while Cyno is in this stance, it will trigger an effect that increases the skill's damage by 35%, as well as firing off three Duststalker bolts that will deal 50% Electro damage of Cyno's attack.

The other passive is Authority Over The Nine Bows, which will increase Cyno's damage based on his Elemental Mastery.

Constellation 2: Ceremony: Homecoming of Spirits

When Cyno hits a normal attack, his normal attack Crit rate and Crit damage will increase by 3% and 6% respectively. This buff can stack five times; each stack has its own four-second timer.

Constellation 3: Precept: Lawful Enforcer

Increases Elemental Burst Sacred Rite: Wolf's Swiftness level by three.

Constellation 4: Austerity: Forbidding Guard

While in Pactsworn Pathclearer, after Cyno triggers Electro-Charged, Overloaded, Quicken, Hyperbloom, Electro Swirl, or an Electro Crystallization reaction, some of the best and worst reactions in Genshin Impact, he will restore 3 Elemental Energy for his party. This can trigger five times throughout the burst.

Constellation 5: Funerary Rite: The Passing of Starlight

Increases Elemental Skill Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer level by three.

Constellation 6: Raiment: Just Scales
