Spending her childhood reading military treatises from Teyvat, Sangonomiya Kokomi grows up being a talent of strategy and can outwit enemies with genius stratagems. The 5-star Hydro wielder and Barbara have a lot in common, but Kokomi can be more than just a healer.

Not all healers in the game are appreciated for their talents. However, the tables may be bound to turn as the latest leaks indicate that Kokomi Genshin Impact can be a monster with powerful vigor despite her cute look. Here’s everything we have known so far about this character.

The "pink girl in Genshin Impact" is tougher and much stronger than how she looks.

Kokomi Genshin banner release date

The 2.1 update Livestream has revealed that the banner of Kokomi will be a featured one for the version. Officially, Kokomi banner will be released on September 21 at 6:00 PM UTC+8, right after the Raiden Shogun banner expires. It will conclude on October 12, 2021, at 2:59 PM UTC+8.

Players have also been guessing over the characters to be featured alongside her. Rumor has it that Xingqiu and Fischl might be the candidates as they were not featured for a long time and they can be the formidable support for Kokomi.

Moreover, Everlasting Moonglow, the personal weapon of Kokomi, will also be up for grabs on the weapon banner.

Kokomi Genshin Impact skills

The abilities of Kokomi have been leaked earlier by Honey Hunter World. Here’s every information we have gathered so far.

1. Normal Attack: The Shape of Water

Her normal attack can roll out up to three successive attacks that look like swimming fish, dealing Hydro damage. Kokomi’s charged attack, meanwhile, can take in a specific amount of stamina to charge a Hyfro damage range after a brief casting time.

Gathering the Hydro might, Kokomi can plunge towards the field from mid-air, attacking all enemies in her path. The plunging attack also deals an area of Hydro effect upon impact with the ground.

Kokomi Ability
The 5-star Hydro character will deal attacks in fish forms.

2. Elemental Skills: Kurage’s Oath

Kokomi Genshin Impact owns Kurage’s Oath which can summon water-made “bake-kurage”, healing her active allies. Using this ability will apply Wet status on the character.

Moreover, it can deal Hydro damage to opponents close by based on Kokomi’s maximum HP.

3. Elemental Burst: Nereid’s Ascension

This elemental burst is a self-steroid in the game. Nereid’s Ascension grants Kokomi a "Ceremonial Garment," which enhances her DPS abilities.

Firstly, she can walk and sprint on water like it was hard ground (although Kokomi can also die from fall damage). Secondly, the max HP will add a small amount to her Normal Attacks, Elemental Skill, and Charged Attacks DMG (vary due to talent levels).

The skill that makes her special is that she can run on water.

Best build for Kokomi

As of now, the most ideal Kokomi build remains not entirely transparent as she has yet been released. For the unversed, apart from being probably one of the best Genshin Impact healers, she also works perfectly as a 5-star DPS.

1. Kokomi Genshin weapon

The signature weapon of Kokomi is known as Everlasting Moonglow or Fumetsu Gekka. It is a 5-star Catalyst weapon with a 46-base ATK. The secondary stat is HP whose original value is 10.8. At level 90, the weapon has 49.6 HP and 609 Base ATK.

While Everlasting Moonglow boosts the user’s Healing Bonus by 10 percent, the normal ATK DMG is as well increased by 1 percent of your Max HP. After utilizing an Elemental Burst, your Normal Attacks will regain 0.6 Energy (if they hit) in the following 12 seconds. Characters can get Energy every 0.1 seconds this way.

Kokomi Weapon
The signature weapon for Kokomi Genshin Impact is Everlasting Moonglow.

At the highest Refine Level, the healing Bonus hikes up to 20 percent. While the normal ATK DMG bonus goes up to a rate of 3 percent, everything else remains unchanged.

Kokomi does specialize as a Catalyst character and she can bombard the foes with incredibly destructive ranged attacks. To maximize her potential, you can also use Prototype Amber or Skyward Atlas as a Kokomi Genshin weapon.

The latter is also used in building Mona, Klee, or Yanfei.

2. Kokomi best artifacts

The best set of artifacts that work for Kokomi must be those that can increase her Hydro damage and healing. You can use Maiden Beloved or Heart of Depth.

Players can either make their full sets or do some mix and match to craft their own flawless combination.
