As we’ve already mentioned earlier, Cyno is an upcoming 5-Star Electro character that will be released along with the 3.1 version. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the character’s abilities:

Normal Attack: Invoker’s Spear

  • Normal: Performs up to 4 consecutive spear strikes.
  • Charged: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to opponents along the way.
  • Plunging: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Elemental Skill

  • Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer: Perform a swift thrust, dealing electro damage to opponents along the path. When Cyno is under the Pactsworn Pathclearer effect triggered by Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness, he instead unleashes a Mortuary Rite that deals thunderous AoR electro damage and extends the duration of Pactsworn Pathclearer.

Elemental Burst

  • Sacred Rite Wolf’s Swiftness: Cyno calls upon a divine spirit to possess him, morphing into the Pactsworn Pathclearer.
  • Pactsworn Pathclearer: Cyno’s normal, charged, and plunging attacks are converted to electro damage that cannot be overridden. Also increases his elemental mastery and resistance to interruption and gives him immunity to electro-charged damage.
    • This effect is canceled if Cyno leaves the field, and lasts for a maximum of 18 seconds.


  • The Gift of Silence: Cyno gains 25% more rewards when you dispatch him on a Sumeru expedition for 20 hours
  • Featherfall Judgement: When Cyno is in the Pactsworn Pathfinder state activated by Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness, he enters the Endseer stance at intervals. If he activates Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer while while affected by this stance, he activates the Judication effect, increasing the damage of this Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer by 35%, and firing off three Duststalker Bolts that deal 50% of Cyno’s attack as electro damage. Dustalker Bolt damage is considered elemental skill damage.
  • Authority Over the Nine Bows: Increases Pactsworn Pathclearer’s normal attack damage by 125% of his elemental mastery. Also increases the Dustwalker Bolt damage from his passive talent’s Featherfall Judgement by 250% of his elemental mastery.


  • Ordinance: Unceasing Vigil: After using Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness, Cyno’s Normal Attack SPD will be increased by 20% for 10s. If the Judication effect of his Passive Talent Featherfall Judgment is triggered during Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer, the duration of this increase will be refreshed. You need to unlock the Passive Talent “Featherfall Judgment.”
  • Ceremony: Homecoming of Spirits: When Cyno’s Normal Attacks hit opponents, his Normal Attack CRIT Rate and CRIT DMG will be increased by 3% and 6%, respectively, for 4s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.1s. Max 5 stacks. Each stack’s duration is counted independently.
  • Pecept: Lawful Enforcer: Increases the Level of Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Austerity: Forbidding Guard: When Cyno is in the Pactsworn Pathclearer state triggered by Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness, after he triggers Electro-Charged, Superconduct, Overloaded, Quicken, Aggravate, Hyperbloom, an Electro Swirl or an Electro Crystallization reaction, he will restore 3 Elemental Energy for all nearby party members (except himself.) This effect can occur 5 times within one use of Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness.
  • Funerary Rite: The Passing of Starlight: Increases the Level of Secret Rite: Chasmic Soulfarer by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Raiment: Just Scales: After using Sacred Rite: Wolf’s Swiftness or triggering the Judication effect of the Passive Talent “Featherfall Judgment,” Cyno will gain 4 stacks of the “Day of the Jackal” effect. When he hits opponents with Normal Attacks, he will consume 1 stack of “Day of the Jackal” to fire off one Duststalker Bolt. “Day of the Jackal” lasts for 8s. Max 8 stacks. It will be canceled once Pactsworn Pathclearer ends. A maximum of 1 Duststalker Bolt can be unleashed this way every 0.4s. You must first unlock the Passive Talent “Featherfall Judgment.”
