The only way to unlock Cyno in Genshin Impact 3.1 version is by pulling the character’s banner during the Twilight Arbiter event wish.

During this event, the Electro character, Cyno, will receive a huge drop rate boost. This wish event ends on October 14, so make sure you unlock the character on time. After that, Cyno will be available in the standard wish “Wanderlust Invocation” in the next Genshin impact version.

If you weren’t aware, you will need to spend an in-game currency called Fate in the game’s wish menu to unlock the Cyno. Moreover, you will get a random character as the gacha pull system is similar to a lucky draw. As a result, you’ll need to reroll several times in order to obtain it.

As we’ve already mentioned earlier, Cyno is the latest 5-Star Electro character that was 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.
