Genshin Impact Lynette abilities

Normal Attack – Rapid Ritesword

  • Normal Attack – Performs up to four rapid strikes.
  • Charged Attack – Consumes a certain amount of stamina to unleash two rapid sword strikes.
  • Plunging Attack – Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE damage upon impact.

Elemental Skill – Enigmatic Feint

  • Lynette flicks her mantle and executes an Enigma Thrust, dealing Anemo damage. When the Enigma Thrust hits an opponent, it will restore Lynette’s health based on her max health, and in the four seconds afterward, she will lose a certain amount of health per second.

Based on whether you press or hold this ability, she will use Enigma Thrust differently.

  • Press: Lynette swiftly uses an Enigma Thrust.
  • Hold: Lynette will enter a high-speed Pilfering Shadow state and apply Shadowsign to a nearby opponent. When this high-speed state ends, Lynette will unleash her Enigma Thrust. If there is an opponent with Shadowsign applied to them nearby, Lynette will approach them in a flash before using Enigma Thrust.

A maximum of one opponent can have Shadowsign at any one time. When this opponent gets too far from Lynette, the Shadowsign will be canceled.

Fundamental Force: Ousia – At specific intervals, Lynette will unleash a Surging Blade when she uses Enigma Thrust, dealing Ousia-aligned Anemo damage.

Elemental Burst – Magic Trick: Astonishing Shift

Bogglecat Box:

  • Taunts nearby opponents, attracting their attacks.
  • Deals Anemo DMG to nearby opponents at intervals.
  • When the Bogglecat Box comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro, it will gain the corresponding element and additionally fire Vivid Shots that will deal damage from that element  ,at intervals. Elemental Absorption of this kind will only occur once during this ability duration.
