Genshin Impact Mika: Elemental Skill, Burst, Constellations, Release Date, and More

Normal Attacks, Elemental Skill, and Burst Explained

Overall, according to his leaked set, currently available on Project Amber, Mika’s normal moveset will be composed of a series of Polearm slashes and crossbow shots. His Elemental Skill, Starfrost Swirl, on the other hand, will allow Mika to perform a quick or an aimed crossbow shot by pressing or holding his Skill respectively. The shot will then deal Cryo damage to enemies and apply the Soulwind effect to teammates for a set amount of time. Characters affected by Soulwind will have their ATK Speed increased by 13 to 25% depending on the Skill’s level.

With that said, Mika’s biggest strength will lie in his Elemental Burst. Skyfeather Song, as performing it will allow him to regenerate the HP of his party members and then apply the Eagleplume state to them. While under the effects of the said state, the on-field character will be able to periodically regenerate HP by performing hits. You can check out a full showcase of Mika’s moveset in the video below, revealed by known leaker Dimbreath.

Talents and Constellations

According to the leaked description of his set, Mika’s Talents will be focused on offering extra buffs to your DPS and allowing you to spot local Mondstadt specialties while on the field. You can check out a quick description of all of Mika’s combat talents below, based on their leaked descriptions featured on Project Amber:

  • Rapid-Fire Suppression: Allows teammates affected by his Elemental Skill (Tap) to gain a Detector stack for each enemy hit by it. Each stack will increase their Physical DMG by 10%. A maximum of three stacks can be gained in this manner.
  • Geomorphological Mapping: Characters simultaneously affected by the buffs of Mika’s Skill and Burst will also gain a Detector stack after scoring a Critical hit. A maximum of 2 stacks can be gained this way. The stacks will be counted separately from the ones generated through Rapid-Fire Suppression.

Mika’s constellations will be focused on empowering his healing ability and increasing the availability of his buffs. You can check out a quick overview of all of them below, based on the descriptions featured on Project Amber:

  • C4: Healing the on-field character will allow Mika to gain 3 energy particles. A maximum of 15 can be gained by Burst performed.
