Recently, a video showcasing a yet unreleased character for Genshin Impact has surfaced on the internet. According to leaks online, this new 5-Star character goes by the name Kazuha and has the title of a ronin. So, who is Kazuha in Genshin Impact?

The purpose of this article is to get players excited about all the possibilities that upcoming and future releases possess. Let’s start by taking a closer look at the compelling new Kazuha! If you’d like to see it for yourself, check out this YouTube video posted by the user Mirai. 

Important Note: Please keep in mind that unreleased content is always subject to change or to be scratched completely from the official version of the game. Whether Kazuha is included in the official version of Genshin Impact or not, there is no doubt Mihoyo will continue to unveil impressive new content as time goes on. Just do yourself a favor and don’t get too attached to anything here until you get an official notice from Paimon!

What weapon does Kazuha use?

Being a ronin means Kazuha carries a sword. A swift and decisive blade is a defining factor of such a person. Thus, expect Kazuha to have smooth but quick movements when attacking with his sword. 

For those that enjoy the subtle details, notice how Kazuha slides his sword back into an invisible hilt on his waist in the YouTube video mentioned above. You’ll be able to notice a lot of skilled swordsmanship from Kazuha, including his normal attack’s impressive final blow.

What element does Kazuha use?

According to the information provided by a Twitter user, Kazuha is characteristically “calm, yet acts freely.” Thus, it is most likely this free-spirited nature that resulted in him receiving an Anemo Vision. Left to his own devices, Kazuha will pull out a small leaf and play a sharp whistle tone on it, indicating just how meticulous his control of the wind really is.

Kazuha’s Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst Details

In an impressive display of Anemo power, Kazuha’s Elemental Skill sees the ronin jumping high into the air (much like the other 5-Star Anemo characters, Venti and Xiao). Holding the skill results in pulling nearby enemies in and then lifting them into the air as Kazuha jumps up. 

Upon landing, another gust of wind will pull any further enemies into a small wind vortex near Kazuha. This versatile skill can be used to gain an advantage against a crowd, combos easily with other characters’ abilities, and provide easy exploration for rough terrain.

Kazuha’s Elemental Burst, on the other hand, combines his skills as a swordsman and an Anemo Vision wielder. After activating the Burst, a large area on the field will be caught up inside a wind torrent. Periodically, a powerful slash of Anemo damage will slice through any enemies within the cyclone’s radius. 

As with a number of Anemo abilities, Kazuha’s Elemental Burst can be infused with one of the following elements to do additional damage: Hydro, Cryo, Pyro, or Electro. Keep in mind, though, that it will only absorb the first element it comes into contact with. 

Genshin Impact Kazuha Release Date

Unfortunately, until Mihoyo releases official news on the character, any release date for Kazuha is just a guess. Based on the frequency of major updates for the game (every six weeks or so), we might see Kazuha as soon as early June. 

Until then, if you’d like more information on the character, we suggest checking out websites like Honey Hunter. They provide an unofficial character profile on Kazuha and compile information provided from the most reliable leakers.
