Cyno Introduction:

Cyno is the next upcoming Genshin Impact character, set to release in the 2nd half of the 3.1 update. He is a 5-star Electro Polearm user and holds the title of General Mahamatra. Cyno is in charge of supervising the researchers of the Akademiya.

Basic Information:

  • Vision – Electro
  • Constellation – Lupus Aureus
  • Weapon – Polearm
  • Affiliation – Temple of Silence
  • Birthday – June 23

Cyno is an Electro character who can deal continuous damage and gain more bonuses through precise operations.

Cyno’s Elemental Skill causes him to advance at high speed, dealing Electro DMG to opponents along his path. His Elemental Burst causes him to enter the Pactsworn Pathclearer state, which changes his attack style to deal more DMG. In this state, using his Elemental Skill will cause it to deal AoE Electro DMG and extend the duration of Pactsworn Pathclearer.

When he is in this state, you can time uses of his Elemental Skill to match a certain visual cue to trigger the Judication effect, which will increase the DMG dealt by this Elemental Skill instance and fire off 3 Duststalker Bolts that deal Electro DMG.

Ascension Materials:

  • Vajrada Amethyst Sliver
  • Thunderclap Fruitcore
  • Scarab
  • Divining Scroll

Talent Level Up Materials:

  • Teachings of Admonition
  • Mudra of the Malefic General
  • Divining Scroll

Talents:

Normal Attack: Invoker’s Spear:

  • Normal Attack
    • Performs up to four consecutive spear strikes.
  • Charged Attack
    • Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to enemies along the way.

Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer:

Performs a swift thrust, dealing Electro DMG to opponents along the path.
When Cyno is under the Pactsworn Pathclearer state triggered by the Elemental Burst “Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness,” he will instead unleash a Mortuary Rite that deals thunderous AoE Electro DMG and extends the duration of Pactsworn Pathclearer.

Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness:

Calls upon a divine spirit to dwell in him, morphing into the Pactsworn Pathclearer.

Pactsworn Pathclearer
Cyno’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be converted to Electro DMG that cannot be overridden. Cyno’s Elemental Mastery and resistance to interruption will increase, and he gains immunity to Electro-Charged DMG. This effect will be canceled when Cyno leaves the field and lasts a maximum of 18s.

Featherfall Judgement:

When Cyno is in the Pactsworn Pathclearer state activated by Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness, Cyno will enter the Endseer stance at intervals. If he activates Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer while affected by this stance, he will activate the Judication effect, increasing the DMG of this Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer by 35% and firing off 3 Duststalker Bolts that deal 100% of Cyno’s ATK as Electro DMG. Duststalker Bolt DMG is considered Elemental Skill DMG.

Story:

Cyno is the supervisor in charge of the Sumeru Academiya researchers. His duties are to arrest those who violate the Akademiya’s rules and regulations, terminate illegal studies, and uphold the discipline of the Akademiya.

Nevertheless, researchers feel that this General Mahamatra does nothing but undermine academic progress and prohibit scientific research. Some even claim that he is “cutting off the path to knowledge” and can be seen as a dire threat to any researcher eager to seek knowledge. Over time, researchers have come to shrink away from Cyno in silence whenever they so much as see him, wanting to have nothing to do with him.

But the General Mahamatra is hardly bothered by such things. If this exaggerated public image can really deter some researchers, that will not be an inconvenience for his work.

Voice Lines:

  • Chat: Weighing the Heart
    • Good deeds and bad. In the end, all will be placed upon the scales.
  • Chat: Luck of the Draw
    • Luck can swing the results of a single game, but it’s bound to run out sooner or later.
  • Chat: Doubt
    • I do try to lighten the mood sometimes, but… I’m not the best judge of other people’s sense of humor.

About Cyno: Unfunny Jokes

Hmm… a joke? Ah, I’ve got just the one. Ahem.. There once was a
traveler, stranded in the desert and dying of thirst, who, in desperation, prayed for a Hydro Slime to come their way. But the traveler didn’t realize that at that very moment, a starving Hydro Slime was praying to meet a lone, stranded traveler.. What, not funny? Tsk, I think it’s hysterical.

Hobbies:

In my free time, I like to play Genius Invokation TCG with other people. Being able to express so much
creativity and variation within a working rule set makes it more than just a game -it’s an art form.

Favorite Food:

Rice, meat, and dried nuts, mixed with some yogurt and roasted together… what a wonderful mix of flavors. You can feel the aroma seeping out with the steam as you cut into the crispy outside. It doesn’t even take very long to make; definitely my favorite dish.
