Candace is a four-star Hydro polearm wielder, first announced in a tweet from Hoyoverse, and is the guardian of the new Aaru area, a brand-new extension on the Sumeru region. She is able to be drawn from a new banner with phase one of the 3.1 update, so if you’re looking to add her to your team, keep reading to find out how long she’s available for, as well as her abilities, constellations, and more.
Genshin Impact Candace banner release date
The Candace banner is here, as of the Genshin Impact 3.1 release date of September 27, 2022. Available in both the Venti banner, Ballad in Goblets, and the new Cyno banner, Twilight Arbiter, Candance has increased draw rates until the end of phase one on October 14, 2022, when we can expect to see these characters replaced by another new Hydro user in the Nilou banner.
Genshin Impact Candace abilities

- Normal attack: Perform up to four consecutive spear strikes.
- Charged attack: Consume a certain amount of stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to enemies along the way.
- Plunging attack: Plunge from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE damage on impact.
Elemental Skill: Sacred Rite – Heron’s Sanctum
Candace can perform the following actions to fight of swathes of enemies:
Tap: Rush forward with your shield, dealing Hydro damage.
Hold: Raise your shield to block incoming attacks from nearby enemies, forming a barrier that absorbs damage based on Candace’s max HP and absorbs Hydro damage 250% more effectively. This barrier lasts until the elemental skill unleashes. When Candace finishes holding up the barrier, she performs a leaping strike that deals Hydro damage to enemies in front of her.
Elemental Burst: Sacred Rite – Wagtail’s Tide
Raise your weapon on high to call a divine blessing that deals AoE Hydro damage based on max HP and continuously confers the Prayer of Crimson Crown on the active character.
Prayer of the Crimson Crown: Characters deal increased elemental damage with normal attacks. Whenever a character takes the field, they unleash a wave of water that deals Hydro damage to enemies (a limited number of waves can be unleashed). Sword, Claymore, and polearm users under this effect obtain Hydro Infusion.
