Amongst the unreleased characters in Genshin Impact, Dainsleif is probably the most anticipated. Despite getting announced as a playable character on September 27, 2020, right before launch, there is still no sign that he is anywhere near release. In this article, we are going to showcase all Dainsleif leaks in Genshin Impact, including character profile, elements, weapons, and expected release date.

1. Who is Dainsleif in Genshin Impact?

Dainsleif makes his first appearance in game during the World Quest "Bough Keeper: Dainsleif". He is presented as a mysterious character who knows the Traveler and what they have accomplished so far.

Story-wise, Dainsleif hates the Abyss Order and dislikes The Seven Gods.

During the Stormterror's Lair portion of the quest, Dainsleif reveals that he is cursed with immortality and is much older than he looks. He is one of the few characters with a connection to Khaenri'ah in Genshin Impact. Apparently, Dainsleif failed to stop the catastrophic event that occurred in the country 500 years ago.

Appearance-wise, Dainsleif is a tall man with light blonde hair and sea blue eyes, wearing a set of black attire with starry patterns. Parts of the right side of his body appear to be covered in a blue-veined pattern, which seems to expand when he uses his ability.

2. Dainsleif might be able to switch elements or have new elements

Dainsleif, like the traveler, seems to not have a vision attached to his outfit. This might be the sign that he is going to be a character with the ability to change elements similar to the Traveler. However, in the Chinese Character card, his element is listed in a mysterious language, unlike any other character in the game.

Based on his feats in the story, many fans suspect that he might have special Abyssal or Celestial elements. These both are likely obtained through his alchemy. In the quest, he used some dark power to choke the Abyss Herald... while in some of his official art, he has a glowing arm and gold eye. These details emit divine power similar to the aura of an Archon.

It is likely that these elements are going to arrive in the game later in the story, similar to how miHoYo added new elements to their other game Honkai Impact 3rd.

3. What is the weapon of Dainsleif in Genshin Impact?

There hasn't been much info available about Dainsleif's weapon so far. Based on an earlier leak this year, he is going to join the list of Genshin Impact sword users. However, this is likely just a placeholder and can be changed at any time.

4. When will Dainsleif be released?

He is the featured character of a future chapter in the Teyvat Storyline, which focuses on the lost kingdom of Khaenri'ah. This will happen much later in the storyline of Genshin Impact. Based on leaks, Khaenri'ah is unlocked after the player explored all 7 nations of Teyvat.
