As we get closer to the release of Genshin Impact‘s version 3.2, HoYoverse took on social media to reveal the first official look at the characters set to arrive on the game’s version 3.3. In this case 5-star Anemo Catalyst The Wanderer –previously known as Scaramouche– and 4-star Anemo Archer Faruzan. With that said, so that you are fully prepared for his long-awaited playable debut, here’s everything that leaked and was revealed regarding Genshin Impact’s The Wanderer, including a full look at his abilities, Talents, Constellations, and his release date.

Genshin Impact The Wanderer: Normal/Charged Attacks, Elemental Skill, and Burst Explained

According to known leaker Niana, who revealed a full overview of the upcoming character’s kit, The Wanderer’s normal attack sequence will consist of summoning wind blades to attack his targets, while his Charged Attack will allow him to deal AoE Anemo DMG after a short buildup.

His Elemental Skill “Hanega: Fushi Kakka” will, on the other hand, allow him to deal AoE Anemo DMG before taking the skies (like Venti) while also allowing him to enter Windfavored State. While in this state, his attacks will be enhanced and deal AoE DMG. While the state is active, he will consume a set of Sky-Dweller points steadily. Spending all points will end the state.

On the other hand, his Elemental Burst “Kyougen: Shikiraku Gobandate” will allow The Wanderer to deal a high amount of AoE Anemo DMG.

Talents and Constellations

Also according to the leaked overview of his set, all of The Wanderer’s talents seem to be focused on both increasing his synergy with other elements and both increasing the duration of his Windfavored State and allowing him to deal extra DMG while in it. You can check out a brief overview of his Talents below, based on the descriptions provided by Niana on the leak:

  • Second Ascension Passive: If The Wanderer’s Elemental Skill AoE comes in contact with other elements, it will buff his Windfavored State. Up to two effects can co-exist.
    • Pyro: Increases The Wanderer’s ATK by 30%.
    • Hydro: Sky-Dweller cap increased by 20.
    • Cryo: Increases his CRIT Rate by 20%.
    • Electro: Restores 0.6 Energy every time a Normal or Charged attack hits an enemy.
  • Fourth Ascension Passive: When hitting enemies with his normal and charged attacks during his Windfavored State he will have a 16% chance to trigger his Descent effect. the effect will allow The Wanderer to sprint without spending Sky-Dweller points. Performing the sprint will also allow him to generate 4 projectiles, dealing 35% ATK as Anemo DMG to the closest targets.

His Utility Talent will allow you to spend 50% less Mora when ascending Bows and Catalysts.

Constellation-wise, according to the leaks, all of his constellations will be focused on increasing his overall Skill and Burst damage. You can check out a quick overview of his constellations below, based on the descriptions leaked by Niana:

  • C1: Will increase the speed of his normal and charged attacks by 10% while in his Windfavored State.
  • C2: Will increase his Elemental Burst DMG based on the contrast between the current amount and the maximum amount of Sky-Dweller points. Every point difference will increase his Burst overall DMG by 3%. A maximum of 150% DMG can be gained from the effect.
  • C3: Increases his Elemental Skill level by 3.
  • C4: Will allow The Wanderer to gain a random buff after triggering the effects of his first Ascension Passive.
  • C5: Increases his Elemental Burst level by 3.
  • C6: While in his Windfavored State, hitting enemies with Normal/Charged attacks will deal extra damage based on 40% ATK and will also regenerate 3 Sky-Dweller Points.

Genshin Impact The Wanderer: Will Scaramouche be a Support or a DPS?

Taking into account the overall leaked kit, we can assume that The Wanderer (Scaramouche) will be an Anemo DPS focused on staying in the field during his Elemental Skill as part of fixed rotations. It is also safe to assume that, though he will not be one of the game’s top DPS’, he will be able to synergize well with Anemo batteries/supports and Cryo Supports, such as Diona and the game’s upcoming 4-star Layla.

When Will The Wanderer be Released?

According to many leaks, as well as our own impressions, The Wanderer (Scaramouche) is set to be released on December 10, 2022, during the first wave of banners part of Genshin Impact’s version 3.3.

Genshin Impact is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and mobile devices – Android, and iOS.
