The first batch of characters have been released in Genshin Impact Version 1.1, but players are eagerly waiting for the next banner which is coming very soon. Here is a guide giving more information on what the fiery Xinyan, one of the two upcoming characters can do!

Genshin Impact Xinyan Skills, Talents, and Ascension

Xinyan is a 4 star Pyro element user who uses a Claymore as a weapon. She's coming to Genshin Impact on December 1, in a banner with Geo 5 Star user Zhongli, one of the other characters planned for 1.1. She is not yet in the game as an NPC (non-player character), although she is mentioned; thanks for the YouTube comments section for this one! She is a well-known performer in the Liyue area, where during the height of her show, she uses pyrotechnics. For this reason, she was banned by the Liyue authorities to ensure the safety of their people.
