Cyno is the ferocious General Mahamatra, leading the Matra into battle and keeping away the devious Akademiya researchers. Don’t underestimate Cyno because of his size. This general has a disarming presence and is incredibly powerful in battle. Wielding a Polearm, Cyno is the latest 5-star Electro character and will be a great asset to your Dendro-based teams.

How to unlock Cyno in Genshin Impact

Cyno will be obtainable on the Character Event Wish banner as a featured 5-star character in the first half of Version 3.1. Following this initial banner, Cyno won’t be able to be summoned to your account, so you’ll have to wait until she gets another featured Character Event Wish banner.

Elemental Burst

  • Featherfall Judgment: When Cyno is in the Pactsworn Pathclearer state activated by Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness, Cyno will enter the Endseer stance at intervals. If he activates Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer while affected by this stance, he will activate the Judication effect, increasing the DMG of this Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer by 35%, and firing off 3 Duststalker Bolts that deal 100% of Cyno’s ATK as Electro DMG. Duststalker Bolt DMG is considered Elemental Skill DMG.
