- Arlecchino is a highly anticipated character in Genshin Impact and is speculated to be a five-star Pyro polearm.
- She may have HP mechanics in her kit and could be the first scythe user in the game.
- Arlecchino’s leaked kit suggests she is an Overloaded reaction DPS with the ability to switch between draining enemy HP and her own HP for powerful attacks.
Several Genshin Impact leakers are finding out new things about Arlecchino. She’s a highly anticipated character as one of the Tsaritsa’s Fatui Harbingers. Her design in “A Winter Night’s Lazzo” caught many fans’ eyes, and said fans will be delighted to hear that leaks of Arlecchino are bubbling to the surface. While everything is subject to change, one thing many leakers agree on is that Genshin Impact‘s Arlecchino is most likely a five-star Pyro polearm.
The head of the House of Hearth may follow the trend a lot of Fontaine characters introduced by having HP mechanics in her kit. She’s also speculated to be the first ever scythe user in Genshin Impact. As exciting as this may be, if it comes true, Genshin Impact Hu Tao fans may have a reason to celebrate, since it could have an HP stat with a DPS passive and fit her aesthetic.
Genshin Impact Leaks Details About Upcoming Character Releases
A new Genshin Impact leak gives more information about five new characters that could join the roster in the upcoming updates.
Genshin Impact Leak Shows Arlecchino’s Potential Role in Battle
Arlecchino’s Leaked Kit
Arlecchino was leaked to be an Overloaded reaction DPS. Many in the community are wondering why HoYoVerse is taking a niche turn with their units, but this is workable for players. With the recent release of Genshin Impact‘s Chevreuse, at her highest constellation level, she’s a wonderful support for Pyro and Electro units, giving them a 60% DMG buff. Chevreuse could be a staple for Arlecchino teams once she’s playable.
Arlecchino was also teased to work similarly to Genshin Impact‘s Furina: having two states to switch between for combat. One state has her draining enemy HP to restore it to herself. But her other state is much more vicious according to leaks, as Arlecchino would be draining her own HP to deal big numbers in combat. Allegedly, her elemental burst does massive AOE Pyro DMG and applies something called “Abyssal Mantle” to herself to absorb the whole team’s HP and do more DMG in a bigger AOE.
Her leaked passive talent accelerates her attack speed when she loses HP, but it’s not currently known by how much or what the maximum speed she can reach is. However, DPSs that have an increase in speed are invaluable as this means there’s more potential for more instances of damage. Arlecchino’s playstyle will be easy to understand so long as players know how to work her as an Overloaded DPS, one of the many elemental reactions in Genshin Impact.
Explaining How Arlecchino May Work
Overloaded happens when Pyro or Electro meet and causes some minor AOE damage. It cannot crit, but it does raise with level and Elemental Mastery. Arlecchino fans will want to get her to her highest level, so they can invest more in her talents and levels. When it comes to being able to build Arlecchino, if the current leaks are accurate, players will want to put her in a 4pc Crimson Witch of Flames artifact set to maximize her Overloaded damage.
When it comes to weaponry, she’ll obviously have her signature weapon as a choice, but if HP is what she scales off of, there are a lot of good choices for her. Arlecchino has good weapon choices now, but if things change from now to her release, there are still going to be good options outside of her signature. Genshin Impact never releases a character who is solely relying on their signature weapon to do good damage. Some viable options at this time are:
- Staff of Homa (five-star, Hu Tao’s signature weapon)
- Black Tassel (three-star, exploration or gacha)
- Staff of Scarlet Sands (five-star, Cyno’s signature weapon)
- Dragon’s Bane (four-star, gacha)
