Genshin Impact Character Teaser Trailer Introduces Lyney, the Magician

Developer HoYoverse just released a new Genshin Impact character teaser trailer featuring Lyney, the elder brother of a trio of entertainers who are known for holding shows on Fontaine. He wields the Vision of Pyro and uses his Bow to perform some element tricks during combat. When Lyney fires charged Prop Arrows, they can summon a magical Grin-Malkin Hat that can taunt nearby enemies. At the climax of his combat performance, Lyney turns into a Grin-Malkin Cat, burning the enemies nearby and igniting fireworks to end the fight.

Lyney’s banner will be available in the first wave of Character Wishes in Genshin Impact‘s Version 4.0 Update, with his sister Lynette also joining in his banner as a 4-star Anemo Unit. Furthermore, Yelan will also be coming back for a rerun. The weapon banner will also include an increased drop-rate on Lyney’s signature weapon, the The First Great Magic and Yelan’s signature weapon, the Aqua Simulacra.
