After Heizou's official reveal, several new Genshin Impact leaks have popped up to reveal all of his abilities. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything revealed so far about Genshin Impact Heizou character. Take note that Heizou is in development and any of his statistics could be changed at any time.

1. Heizou normal and charged attacks

Unlike the other Catalyst users in Genshin Impact who shoot projectiles, Heizou has some unique flashy and physical movements. His normal attacks look like something in a martial art movie. This probably makes Heizou the first melee catalyst user, as all his attacks have short range.

Normal Attack

His charged attack is an upward kick, which releases a big slash of Anemo. As he is a Catalyst user, all his attacks deal Anemo damage.

2. Heizou Elemental Skill

Heizou Elemental Skill


  • Wields the swift winds to launch a Heartstopper Strike that deals Anemo DMG.


  • Charges energy to unleash an even stronger blow. He will obtain the Declension effect while charging, which will increase the power of the Heartstopper Strike.
  • When the skill button is released or the skill finishes charging, he will strike forward, dealing Anemo DMG.


  • Increases the power of the next Heartstopper Strike. Max 4 stacks.
  • When you possess 4 Declension stacks, the Conviction effect will be produced, which will cause the next Heartstopper Strike to be even stronger and have a larger AoE.

3. Heizou Elemental Burst

Heizou's Burst launches him into the air with a powerful kick, sending out an AoE Anemo attack. If it hits a foe under the effect of Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, or Electro, they will be inflicted with the Windmuster Iris debuff. This debuff would explode and deal AoE damage of whatever element triggered the buff.

Heizou Elemental Burst

Up to four enemies can be affected by Windmuster Iris. This is a spammable Burst, with a cooldown of only 12 seconds and 40 Energy cost. Overall, Heizou is probably an Anemo DPS similar to Xiao, with a skill set focusing on spamming his ability and burst.

4. Heizou Passives

  • Pre-Existing Guilt: Decreases Stamina consumption when sprinting by 20%. This effect is identical to Kazuha, Kaeya, and Razor's passive and does not stack.
  • Paradoxical Practice: This effect gives him one declension stack whenever he triggers Swirl. Can only activate once every 0.1 seconds.
  • Penetrative Reasoning: Increases the Elemental Mastery of all allies (except Heizou) by 80 for 10 seconds whenever he hits an enemy with his Elemental Skill.
