- Gaming may be a plunging DPS character, similar to Genshin Impact’s Xiao, but that doesn’t mean he should be dismissed.
- According to leaks, Gaming’s elemental skill infuses his attacks with Pyro and drains his own HP, but it won’t go below a certain threshold.
- Gaming’s ascension passives allow him to heal himself and receive damage bonuses, making him a self-sufficient character that doesn’t necessarily require a dedicated healer on the team.
As tends to be the case, new Genshin Impact leaks are taking the community by storm. The new four-star Genshin Impact character Gaming has had his kit and gameplay leaked for players to watch as the beta moves along. Nothing mentioned here is confirmed; as with all leaks, these things are subject to change.
From the looks of things, Gaming might be a plunging DPS. This is interesting, since the last big plunging DPS was Genshin Impact’s Xiao. Though, just because he is currently similar to a previous character does not mean he should be written off. He should be able to be playable before players make any calls.
Genshin Impact Leak Confirms Gaming’s Weapon in Animation Showcase
The new Liyue 4-Star Pyro character has some truly bedazzling animations, as the recent Genshin Impact leak also confirms Gaming’s weapon of choice.
Genshin Impact’s Gaming’s Kit According to Leaks
Based off of current leaks, it’s assumed that his elemental skill will be where his main damage comes from. His skill supposedly changes his normal attacks and plunges to Pyro-infused attacks that cannot be overriden. He drains his own HP as he attacks, but it won’t go below a certain percentage. The current number the leaks have for this threshold is 10%, but this is subject to change.
Gaming’s elemental burst currently involves summoning a new Genshin Impact companion named Man Chai who will do an instance of AOE Pyro DMG. After a while, Man Chai comes back to Gaming and resets his skill cooldown. During his burst, if Gaming uses his skill again, leaks say Man Chai will come out again to do another instance of damage. However, it isn’t clear if this is all his burst does or if there’s something more complicated at play.
Gaming’s Ascension Passives
Gaming’s first ascension passive lets him heal himself after hitting an enemy with his skill or enhanced plunge attacks. This can definitely add some comfort to his kit for players who don’t always use one of Genshin Impact‘s healers on their team. Having survivability in the kit lets players use him without too much worry about needing to change a slot in the team for a healer if they’re focusing on his damage. Hopefully, this will remain intact when he’s playable.
His second ascension passive appears to work similarly to Genshin Impact‘s Baizhu. If Gaming is below 50% HP, he’s said to receive a 20% healing bonus. However, if he’s above or equal to 50% HP, he receives a 20% Pyro DMG bonus. The extra damage bonus will encourage players to make use of his first passive and keep him healing so that he can receive a steady 20% bonus at all times. His final passive allows him to move 10% faster in the day, which sounds helpful as an exploration bonus.
Gaming’s constellations bring about interesting buffs to his kit that would be exciting to see for a four-star DPS character. His third and fifth constellations are as expected and likely to stay the same; his third adds three levels to his skill and his fifth adds three levels to his burst.
His first constellation allegedly allows him to heal himself when Man Chai returns to him. This adds another comfortable layer to his kit, much like his second constellation, which lets overflow healing convert to a 20% ATK bonus. This is vaguely reminiscent of the Ocean-Hued Clam set and fits nicely in his kit. His fourth is a simple energy return during his skill at the time, but his C6 boosts his E majorly, currently adding:
