If Genshin Impact is a boat, it would have sunk a long time ago. There have been so many leaks that it is actually hard to find things that haven't been leaked. Jokes aside, another unreleased character in Genshin Impact 3.4 has been revealed.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything available so far about Alhaitham, including his expected release date, skill and burst.

1. Genshin Impact Alhaitham release date

Ever since 3.0 was revealed, Alhaitham was amongst the most hyped because he looks strong. Players only got a brief glimpse of Alhaitham's power as they explored Sumeru. He is a 5-star Dendro Sword user.

Genshin Impact Al Haitham
Alhaitham vs Cyno was a pretty hyped cutscene.

According to the latest leaks, he is going to come out during Genshin Impact 3.4's first banner. Based on the general length of the usual Genshin Impact banner, the 3.4 patch will come out around January 11. Alhaitham is going to be accompanied by the long awaited 4-star Dendro healer Yaoyao.

2. Alhaitham Elemental Skill

Fans who are planning to pull for Alhaitham will definitely want to check out these early leaks. As we already have plenty of Dendro support with the Archon, Yaoyao, Traveler, Collei... it is highly likely that Aihaitham will be a Dendro DPS.

Alhaitham's skill is the most detailed leak, with a lot of information available. Apparently, it is yet another Dendro construct summon, with Alhaitham throwing a Forlorn Lotus onto the battlefield. Players can hold his skill to manually aim the lotus.

After releasing the lotus, Alhaitham will enter the Forlorn Lotus Mode where his normal attacks mark enemies. The effects of these marks are unknown.

Apparently, his weapon type also changes to "RuneWeapon" upon activation. This might refer to an unique weapon (like that of Raiden Shogun) or a Dendro elemental infusion.

3. Alhaitham Elemental Burst

Alhaitham's Elemental Burst releases some kind of Dendro fog onto the battlefield. It synergizes with his Forlorn Lotus ability, giving both the construct and Alhaitham bonus damage. Additionally, the Lotus also gains some more durability... however, it is unknown if the construct is a turret (like Yae Miko) or a Taunt (like Itto's Ushi).

Overall, based on his abilities, it is very likely that Alhaitham will be the first Dendro DPS who does not rely on reactions, as all his skills benefit himself and not the team. This would be a breath of fresh air, as all Dendro characters released so far have been revolving around Dendro reactions.
