After Klee’s re-run banner, Genshin Impact is releasing its newest playable character, Kaedehara Kazuha. He is a 5-star Anemo sword-user that specializes in delivering AoE damages with his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst.
A little backstory about Kaedahara Kazuha — he is a wandering samurai from Inazuma who is currently staying with Beidou’s Crux Fleet. In his official description from Mihoyo, Kazuha is described as a gentle and carefree soul whose heart hides many burdens and troubles from his past. While the Inazuma map won’t be out in Genshin Impact Version 1.6, Kaedehara Kazuha is the first playable character Travelers will encounter in the game.
Now, let’s talk about his skills:
Elemental Skill: Chihayaburu
Kazuha uses a secret samurai technique that pulls objects and opponents toward his position before launching the opponents within the AoE. This attack deals with Anemo Damage and also causes Kazuha to lift into the air on a rushing wind current.
Another effect of Chihayaburu is while Kazuha is in mid-air, he can unleash a powerful plunging attack called Midare Ranzan. His plunging attack will be converted into Anemo Damage, which will create a miniature wind tunnel that will pull nearby objects and opponents.
Elemental Burst: Kazuha Slash
Kazuha deals Anemo Damage with a single slash. His blade’s passage will also leave a field called Autumn Whirlwind, which will deal AoE Anemo Damage at set intervals to opponents within it.
Passive Talent (1): Souman Swordsmanship
Elemental Absorption will occur when his Elemental Skill comes in contact with any other elements. This will also cause Kazuha’s plunging attack to deal additional Damage of that Elemental Type that it has absorbed.
Passive Talent (2): Poetics of Fuubutsu
Kazuha grants his teammates an Elemental Damage Bonus to their corresponding Element upon triggering a Swirl reaction.
Exploration Talent: Cloud Strider
Using Kazuha in your party will decrease Stamina consumption for all the members.
Kazuha’s own Character Banner will be released after Klee’s Sparkling Steps. His Banner will be called “Leaves in the Wind.” For those who don’t know, Genshin Impact Version 1.6 is now out. You can download the new update on your gaming PC, PlayStation 4, or mobile phone.
