Genshin Impact 3.5 update is around the corner, and as we all know, with every update, miHoYo introduces us to new characters with unique abilities and some reruns. In this update, we will see a brand new 5-star Pyro character named Dehya. She wields a Claymore to thrash her opponents. We have many players who want to know when Dehya is coming into the game. With that in mind, we have put together a handy guide on Dehya’s release date, including her abilities constellations, and more.
The information below is based on Honey Impact.
Dehya’s Banner Release Date
Dehya’s banner will be released in the 3.5 update as part of the first phase. Mika will join Dehya in the second phase of the update, which is arriving on March 1, 2023.
Dehya Abilities, Passives & Constellations
Dehya is a formidable warrior that wields a powerful Claymore and utilizes the power of Pyro. With her mid-range single target damage dealing abilities, she makes an excellent choice for DPS when combined with support and buff characters. She boasts impressive elemental skills, creating an area that causes coordinated attacks on any opponents within it with Pyro elemental damage. Dehya has excellent exploration passives— she grants the whole team increased movement speed during the daytime (6 am – 6 pm). Be sure to keep an eye out for her when she joins the roster of playable characters in the upcoming update.
Dehya’s Attack Talents
- Normal Attack: Performs up to 4 consecutive strikes using her Claymore weapon and martial arts.
- Charged Attack: Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous slashes. At the end of the sequence, performs a more powerful slash.
- Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Elemental Skill – Molten Inferno
This art of Dehya’s invention is a versatile combat technique that can be adapted to any situation. When faced with an enemy, Dehya can either use the art to fight them directly or to deflect their attacks and redirect them back to their attacker. The art is also useful for defending against multiple opponents, as Dehya can use it to create a barrier of ki that will deflect all incoming attacks.
The Fiery Sanctum is a magical field that can unleash a coordinated attack against an opponent that takes damage while inside it. This attack deals AoE Pyro DMG, or area of effect damage, to the opponent. This effect can be triggered once every 2.5 seconds. Any character that is active inside the Fiery Sanctum field has their resistance to interruption increased. In addition, when such characters take damage, a portion of that damage is mitigated and redirected into Redmane’s Blood. This allows the character to take less damage overall while inside the Fiery Sanctum field.
Dehya will take this DMG over 10 seconds. When the mitigated DMG stored by Redmane’s Blood reaches or goes over a certain percentage of Dehya’s Max HP, she will stop mitigating DMG in this way. Only 1 Fiery Sanctum created by Dehya herself can exist at the same time. This Fiery Sanctum deals 100% more DMG to Beasts. When the Sanctum expires, it will explode and deal Fire DMG equal to the 100% of the DMG it mitigated while active. Dehya gains 1 stack of Redmane’s Blood for each Musketeer killed while the Fiery Sanctum is active.
This skill will be unleashed should there be no Fiery Sanctum created by Dehya herself present at the time. It deals with AoE Pyro DMG and creates a field known as Fiery Sanctum. Fiery Sanctum will increase the Pyro DMG of all party members, and will also reflect a portion of all Pyro DMG taken back at the attacker.
Dehya’s Fiery Sanctum skill will be unleashed if a Fiery Sanctum field already exists. Dehya will perform a leaping attack, dealing with AoE Pyro DMG. She will then recreate a Fiery Sanctum field at her new position. This powerful move can deal a lot of damage to enemies and is perfect for taking down multiple foes at once.
Elemental Burst – The Lioness’ Bite
Unleashing away her burning anger and throwing aside her blade like an inconvenience, Dehya enters the state of the flaming tigress and resists the obstruction. In this state, Dehya will automatically and continuously unleash Flame-Mana Fist, deal with Pyro DMG, and when its duration expires, he will issue an Incineration Drive Kick to deal with AOE Pyro DMG. In this state, his Normal Attacks will be replaced by Roaring Barrages.
While fighting the raging flames, one must be constantly on the lookout for an opening. When one appears, unleash a roaring barrage within 0.4 seconds after each Flame-Mane’s Fist strike. This will increase the speed at which the next Flame-Mane’s Fist strike will be triggered, making the battle that much easier.
Dehya’s Passive Talents
Dehya gains 60% reduced damage from the Blood of Redmane for six seconds after acquiring the Fiery Sanctuary field via Molten Inferno: Ranging Flame or Leonine Bite. This effect can be triggered once every two seconds.
Dehya can also use Molten Inferno: Indomitable Flame to grant all party members the Gold-Forged Form state, providing a higher resistance against interruption while in the Fiery Sanctum. This effect has an activation speed of only 9 seconds and a cooldown of 18 seconds.
Stalwart and True
When her HP drops below 30%, Dehya will receive 20% of her Maximum HP and regenerate 10% of her Maximum HP every two seconds for the next ten seconds. This effect has a cooldown of 20 seconds and can only be triggered once.
The Sunlit Way
Enhance your party members’ Movement SPD for daytime activities (6:00 – 18:00) by 10%. These effects do not apply in Domains, Trounce Domains, and Spiral Abyss. Moreover, it does not stack with other passive talents offering similar effects.
The Flame Incandescent
Dehya’s Max HP is increased by 20%, and she deals bonus DMG based on her Max HP when using the following attacks:
- Molten Inferno‘s DMG will be increased by 3.6% of her Max HP.
- ·Leonine Bite‘s DMG will be increased by 6% of her Max HP.
The Sand-Blades Glittering
When Dehya casts Molten Inferno: Ranging Flame, the duration of the recreated Fiery Sanctum field is extended by 4s.
In addition, when a Fiery Sanctum is present, the next coordinated attack directed at characters within the Fiery Sanctum field will cause 50% more damage.
A Rage Swift as Fire
It increases the level of Leonine Bite by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
An Oath Abiding
When Flame-Mane’s Fist and Incineration Drive attacks unleashed during The Lioness’ Bite hit opponents, they will restore 1.5 Energy for Dehya and 2% of her Max HP. This effect can occur once every 0.2s.
The Alpha Unleashed
This constellation increases the level of Molten Inferno by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
The Burning Claws Cleaving
The CRIT Rate of The Lioness’ Bite is increased by 10%. Additionally, after a Flame-Mane’s Fist attack hits an opponent and deals CRIT Hits during a single use of The Lioness’ Bite, it will cause the CRIT DMG of The Lioness’ Bite to increase by 15% for the rest of its duration and extend that duration by 0.5s. This effect can trigger every 0.2s. The duration can be extended for a maximum of 2s, and CRIT DMG can be increased by a maximum of 60%.
