P1. Rapid-Fire Suppression: The Soulwind state caused by Starfrost Swirl will grant characters the Detector effect under the following circumstances and in the following ways, increasing their Physical DMG by 10% If the Flowfrost Arrow hits more than one opponent, each additional opponent hit will generate 1 Detector stack. Each opponent hit by Rimestar Shards will generate 1 Detector stack. The Soulwind state can have a maximum of 3 Detector stacks, and if Starfrost Swirl is activated again during this duration, the pre-existing Soulwind state and all its Detector stacks will be cleared.

P2. Geomorphological Mapping: When a character simultaneously affected by Eagleplume and Starfrost Swirl's Soulwind scores a CRIT Hit with their attacks. Soulwind will grant them 1 stack of Detector from Rapid-Fire Suppression. During a single instance of Eagleplume, 1 Detector stack can be gained in this manner. Additionally, the maximum number of stacks that can be gained through Soulwind alone is increased by 1. Requires Rapid-Fire Suppression to be unlocked first.

P3. Demarcation: Displays the location of nearby resources unique to Mondstadt on the mini-map.

5. Mika Constellations

  • C1. Contingency Factor: The Soulwind state of Starfrost Swirl can decrease the healing interval between instances caused by Skyfeather Songs Eagleplume state. This decrease percentage is equal to the ATK SPD increase provided by Soulwind.

6. How good is Mika?

Mika is pretty much the new premier support for Eula. His whole skill set is designed around healing (which Eula needs), and Physical damage bonus (which for now benefits only Eula). The attack speed buff from his Skill is also fairly usable for Eula as well. His Cryo element also allow him to battery Eula and give her Elemental Resonance.

Eula May Come Back After Update 3 5
Eula will come back in 3.5

The bonus given by Mika is based on how many enemies player manages to hit with his Skill. For each enemy hit, the active character would gain one buff stack of 10% Physical damage (max 3). The 2nd passive increase the max stack to 4 and give an extra stack.

This means in single target scenario, the maximum Phys damage bonus Mika can give is only 20%, but if there are 3 enemies, players can get up to 40% instead. Similar to Faruzan, Mika's C6 is fairly busted. It increases the max Phys buff stack to 5 (50% DMG) and gives the active character an extra 60% Physical Crit DMG. Eula users should aim to get C6 Mika.
