Who will be the first drop, Ganyu or Albedo?

Update: March 29th

We have made a new format for all of this information, and it includes everything you need to know for Ganyu!


We also have an All Genshin Impact Characters list, that gives all available details on all characters in the game, and that includes those rumored to be coming in later updates.

Additionally, we have an All Genshin Impact Materials list, which covers all Ascension and Talent Materials currently in the game!

Genshin Impact Ganyu Skills, Talents, and Ascension

Ganyu is currently a 5 Star Cryo element user who uses a bow. This lady first appears in the Archon Quests Chapter 1, Act 2: Farewell, the Archaic Lord. If you haven't reached her in the story yet, she works as the secretary for Ningguang, otherwise known as Lady Qixing.

    • Perform up to 6 consecutive shots with a bow.
  • Charged Attack
    • Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased damage.
    • While aiming a Cryo aura will accumulate on the arrowhead before the arrow is fired. This has different effects based on how long the aura has been charged
      • Charge Level 1: Fires off a Cryo arrow that deals Cyro damage.
      • Charge Level 2: Fires off a Frostfale Arrow that deals Cryo damage. The Frostflake Arrow blooms when hitting its target, dealing AoE Cryo damage.
  • Plunging Attack
    • Fires off a shower of arrows in min-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE damage upon impact.

Elemental Skill

Trial of The Qilin

Ganyu leaves behind a single Ice Lotus behind, as she dashes backward, shunning all impurity and dealing AoE Cryo damage.

  • Ice Lotus
    • Continuously taunts surrounding enemies, attracting them to attack it.
    • Endurance scales are based on Ganyu's Max HP.
    • Blooms profusely when destroyed or once its duration ends, dealing AoE Cryo DMG.

Elemental Burst

Celestial Shower

Ganyu coalesces atmospheric frost and snow to summon an Ice Soul Gem that exorcises evil. During its ability duration, the Ice Soul Gem will continuously rain down shards of ice, striking enemies within an AoE and dealing Cryo DMG.
