Genshin Impact Alhaitham farming guide

Clearly the best-looking scribe to descend upon the Akademiya.

Alhaitham is a Genshin Impact five-star Dendro sword user. He graduated from the Akademiya's Haravatat Darshan, a school that specializes in semiotics, linguistics, and ancient rune studies. Students who wish to graduate from this Darshan must master at least 20 languages, hence why Alhaitham is perceived to be incredibly adept at linguistics. He's also the Akademiya's scribe and Acting Grand Sage, and is a roommate to a wine-obsessed architect named Kaveh.
