Ever since they were officially revealed as the staple characters for the region of Fontaine, Lynette and her older brother Lyney quickly raised the ranks and became fan favorites. But will Lynette be a 5-star like her brother? What will be her weapon of choice? And more importantly, what will be her role while on the field? Now, here’s everything you need to know about Lynette, including a complete overview of her leaked kit.

More About Lynette

According to her official character introduction, Lynette will be an Anemo 4-star sword user, as well as both the younger sister and stage partner of Lyney and the older sister of Freminet. However, even though she works as Lyney’s magical assistant during his many performances, Lynette seems to be more like her younger sibling and appears to prefer to stay out of the spotlight and stay be herself when out of the stage. Taking into account Freminet’s comment in her character overview, Lynette seems to be extremely focused and in some ways strict.

  • Like Honey Impact, Project Amber is a fan-made database featuring reliable information regarding both upcoming and upcoming characters/features. The site was developed by @anonsbelle and can be considered one of the premier sources for leaked sets.

Elemental Skill, Explained

Her Elemental Skill, Enigmatic Feint, will allow Lynette to perform an Enigma Thrust. The Thrust will then deal heavy damage and heal Lynette’s HP for a fixed amount before gradually chipping away at her heath.

Pressing the Skill will allow her to perform a simple Enigma Thrust while holding it will allow Lynette to enter her Pilfering Shadow state and perform a run similar to Yelan’s during her Skill (Hold). During her run, Lynewtte will apply Shadowsign to a nearby opponent. Once the running animation ends, Lynette will then teleport to the location of the marked opponent and perform her Enigma Thrust.

Elemental Burst, Explained

Her Elemental Burst, Magic Trick: Astonishing Shift, will allow Lynette to, in a matter similar to Lyney, deal AoE Elemental (Anemo) DMG before summoning her Bogglecat Box. Once in the field, the box will stay in place and perform periodical AoE Anemo attacks. After the Box’s attacks come in contact with any of the game’s elements capable of triggering Swirl, it will fire Vivid Shots matching the absorbed enemy in set intervals.

All of Lynette’s Talents and Constellations, Explained

According to their descriptions featured on Project Amber, Lynette’s first passive talent, Sophisticated Synergy, will allow her to increase the party’s ATK by 8, 12, 16, or 20% depending on how many elements are featured in it, Her second one Props Positively Prepped, will, on the other hand, increase Lynette’s Elemental Burst DMG by 15% after Bogglecat Box assimilates any element. The effect will last for the Box’s full uptime.

Her Exploration Talent, Loci-Based Mnemonics, will mark the location of Recovery Orbs on the minimap, thus allowing you to stay underwater for longer. While having Lynette in the party, the HP and stamina gained from touching the orbs will also be increased by 25%.
