Faruzan is an upcoming Anemo character in Genshin Impact. She is a member of Sumeru Akademiya who disappeared at some point in the past. Before her sudden reveal in previous leaks, there are pretty much no prior mentions of her in the game at all.

She is going to come out alongside the Wanderer in the Genshin Impact 3.3 update. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything you need to know about Genshin Impact Faruzan.

Genshin Faruzan

1. Faruzan Normal Attack

Detailed info on Faruzan's Normal attack, was revealed, and as per the leaked data Faruzan's Normal Attack includes:

  • Normal Attack - Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.
  • Charged Attack - Performs a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, mighty winds will accumulate on the arrowhead. A fully charged wind arrow will deal Anemo DMG.
  • Plunging Attack - Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, hitting opponents along the path, and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Elemental Skill - Wind Realm of Nasamjnin

Faruzan deploys a polyhedron that deals AoE Anemo DMG to nearby opponents. She will also enter the Manifest Gale state. While in the Manifest Gale state, Faruzan's next fully charged shot will consume this state and will become a Hurricane Arrow that deals Anemo DMG to opponents hit. This DMG will be considered Charged Attack DMG.

Pressurized Collapse - The Hurricane Arrow will create a Pressurized Collapse effect at its point of impact, applying the Pressurized Collapse effect to the opponent or character hit. This effect will be removed after a short delay, creating a vortex that deals AoE Anemo DMG and pulls nearby objects and opponents in. The vortex DMG is considered Elemental Skill DMG.

"The winds of truth buffet the spirits of those who seek truth, dispersing the miasma of preconception."

Elemental Burst - The Wind's Secret Ways

Faruzan deploys a Dazzling Polyhedron that deals AoE Anemo DMG and releases a Whirlwind Pulse. While the Dazzling Polyhedron persists, it will continuously move along a triangular path. Once it reaches each corner of that triangular path, it will unleash 1 more Whirlwind Pulse.

Whirlwind Pulse - When the Whirlwind Pulse hits opponents, it will apply Perfidious Wind's Ruin to them, decreasing their Anemo RES. The Whirlwind Pulse will also apply Prayerful Wind's Gift to all nearby characters when it is unleashed, granting them Anemo DMG Bonus.

"One must have respect for the unknown wisdom that one might find hidden in ancient ruins."

Energy cost: 80 / Cooldown: 20s / Duration: 12s (if C0), 18s (if C2).

Here are the passive talents of Faruzan:

1st Talent

When Faruzan is in the Manifest Gale state created by Wind Realm of Nasamjnin, the amount of time taken to charge a shot is decreased by 60%, and she can apply The Wind's Secret Ways' Perfidious Wind's Ruin to opponents who are hit by the vortex created by Pressurized Collapse.

2nd Talent

When characters are affected by The Wind's Secret Ways' Prayerful Wind's Gift deal Anemo DMG to opponents, this DMG will be increased based on 57.4% of Faruzan's own ATK. This DMG Bonus will be cleared 0.1s after dealing Anemo DMG to opponents and can be triggered once every 1s.

3rd Talent

3. Faruzan Constellations

Below are every one of Faruzan's constellations and their exact names:

  • C1: Faruzan can fire off a maximum of 2 Hurricane Arrows using fully charged Aimed Shots while under a single Wind Realm of Nasaminin effect.
  • C2: The duration of the Dazzling Polyhedron created by The Wind's Secret Ways increased by 6s.
  • C3: Increases Elemental Skill Level by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • C4: The vortex created by the Wind Realm of Nasamjnin will restore Energy to Faruzan based on the number of opponents hit: If it hits 1 opponent, it will restore 2 Energy for Faruzan. Each additional opponent hit will restore 0.5 more Energy for Faruzan. A maximum of 4 Energy can be restored to her per vortex.
  • C5: Increases Elemental Burst Level by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • C6: Characters affected by The Wind's Secret Ways Prayerful Wind's Gift have a 40% bonus CRIT DMG when they deal Anemo DMG. When your own active character deals DMG while affected by Prayerful Wind's Gift, they will fire another Hurricane Arrow at opponents. This effect can be triggered once every 2.5s.

4. How strong is Faruzan?

Overall, Faruzan's skill set looks like an Anemo DPS character who fights using Charged shots. This debunks the theory that she was going to be a support to Wanderer.

With Faruzan being a 4 star, it is likely that she would not be as effective in the DPS role as 5 star characters. Her being Anemo doesn't help - we need the numbers and testing to know for sure if she's worth pulling for or not.
