Genshin Impact Characters Guide | All Playable Classes and Weapons

Genshin Impact Characters

Genshin Impact is one of the most exciting free anime online RPGs of the year. With a release date planned for late 2020 for PC, PS4, Switch, Android, and iOS, developer miHoYo is building on the experience achieved with the global hit Honkai Impact 3rd. The sci-fi anime style goes out the window, and in comes a more traditional fantasy style that is drawing many comparisons to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One of the most appealing aspects about Genshin Impact besides its drop-dead gorgeous open world is the number of playable characters that you can choose from, with more than 30 promised by the devs. You, the Traveler, can have up to three other characters in your team, switching between them as you see fit. Our Genshin Impact characters guide introduces you to the cast known so far, current and future, and their respective weapons or elemental attacks. We'll add more as they are revealed.

Noelle

Noelle

Weapon and/or Attack Type: Claymore
Elemental: Geo

Like most of Mondstadt's young people, Noelle always dreamed of being a knight of Favonius when she grew up. She may not have what it takes to be a knight just yet, but she is learning. Working as a maid at the Knights' headquarters, she is constantly taking notes on what constitutes knightly speech, knightly conduct, and knightly customs. She holds firm to her belief that one day she will join their ranks – she just needs to keep trying her hardest at everything she does.

Attached to the Knights of Favonius as an assistant to Albedo, her area of focus is “bio-alchemy.” She strives to enrich the world by transforming living things with the power of alchemy.

Klee

Weapon and/or Attack Type: Catalyst
Elemental: Pyro

Knights of Favonius Spark Knight! Forever with a bang and a flash! – And then disappearing from the stern gaze of Acting Grand Master Jean.

Venti

Some say he is an orphan raised by wolves. Others say he is a wolf spirit in human form. He is most at home in the wild, fighting with claw and thunder.

Barbara

Weapon and/or Attack Type: Catalyst
Elemental: Hydro

The Deaconess of the Knights of Favonius and a shining starlet adored by all. Although the concept of a starlet is rather novel in a city of bards, the people of Mondstadt love Barbara nonetheless. “I owe everything to the city's spirit of freedom.” – Barbara, regarding her popularity.

Kaeya

Weapon and/or Attack Type: Sword

The few young adventurers that the Mondstadt Adventurers' Guild has always find themselves tangled up in baffling bouts of bad luck.

As a result, the team is currently on the verge of being dissolved.

One of the “Mighty and Illuminated Adepti” guarding Liyue, also heralded as the “Guardian Yaksha.” Despite his appearance as a young man, occasional legends about him have been documented in ancient books for thousands of years.

Some say that even the mightiest of sea beasts are no match for her.

An exorcist who roams the land with Liyue as his base of operations, evil spirits fleeing wherever he goes. As the heir to a clan of exorcists, he has always possessed abilities superior to most.

An apprentice and herb gatherer at Bubu Pharmacy. “Blessed” by the adepti with a body that cannot die, this petite zombie cannot do anything without first giving herself orders to do it.

But on her worst days, she even forgets to look at her notebook…

Keqing

Keqing

Weapon and/or Attack Type: Sword
Elemental: Electro

The Yuheng of the Liyue Qixing. Keqing has much to say about Rex Lapis' unilateral approach to policymaking in Liyue – but in truth, gods admire skeptics such as her quite a lot.

In order to prove this, she works harder than anyone else.

Kamisato Ayata

Elemental: ?

The princess of the Kamisato house. She occasionally practices swordsmanship so that she can pass time slicing every falling snowflake floating around her on a snowy day.
