Cyno’s Special Dish Recipe and how to cook it in Genshin Impact

This pyramid-looking dish evokes the spirit within you to win a round of Genius Invokation.

Cyno, the General Mahamatra, may seem stern at first glance, but his penchant for throwing the dryest of jokes (and making it a point to explain, in full detail, what they mean) often lightens up the heavy mood. And while he's a notorious figure in the Akademiya for his job of maintaining order within and outside of its scholarly walls, Cyno is also a TCG enthusiast, ready to whip out his allegedly powerful Genius Invokation deck at a moment's notice. The ever-reliable General Mahamatra is no stranger to cooking—his Special Dish, the Duel Soul, is a variation of the Tahchin.

Difference Between Tahchin and Duel Soul in Genshin Impact

Both of these Recipes will heal a selected character's HP. There isn't a major difference between them, so it may only be worth cooking Duel Soul to add to your collection.

  • Tahchin—Restores 26/28/30 percent of Max HP to the selected character and regenerates 450/620/790 HP every five seconds for 30 seconds.
  • Duel Soul—Restores 34 percent of Max HP to the selected character and regenerates 980 HP every five seconds for 30 seconds.
