Genshin Impact Alhaitham abilities

Normal attack – Abductive Reasoning

  • Normal attack: Performs up to five rapid strikes
  • Charged attack: Consumes stamina to unleash two rapid sword strikes
  • Plunging attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground, damaging enemies and dealing AoE damage

Elemental Skill – Universality: An Elaboration on Form

Rushes forward, dealing Dendro damage to nearby enemies when the rush ends, causing a Chisel-Light Mirror to form.

Hold: Enters aiming mode to adjust the direction of Alhaitham’s rush attack

Chisel-Light Mirror: When this skill is unleashed, Alhatiham generates one Chisel-Light Mirror, if no mirrors are available, he generates a mirror. Mirrors convert Alhaitham’s normal, charged, and plunging attacks into Dendro damage. When attacks hit enemies, the mirrors unleash a projection attack that deals AoE Dendro damage based on the number of mirrors. The mirrors disappear when Alhaitham leaves the battlefield.

Elemental Burst – Particular Field: Fetters of Phenomena

Creates a Particular Binding Field and deals AoE Dendro damage. If mirrors are on the field, then all mirrors are consumed to increase the number of damage dealt.

  • Elucidation: When Alhaitham’s Elemental Burst is unleashed, each mirror consumed increases the Elemental Mastery of all other nearby party members by 30 for 15 seconds. Each mirror generated grants Alhaitham a 10% Dendro damage bonus for 15 seconds.
  • Sagacity: Increases the Elemental Burst by three. Maximum upgrade level in 15.
  • Structuration: Alhaitham generates three mirrors after the Elemental Burst is used, regardless of the number of mirrors consumed.
