Baizhu in Genshin Impact: Ability, gameplay & everything we know
Baizhu is an upcoming Dendro character that will be released in one of Genshin Impact’s upcoming releases. The Liyue pharmacist already features prominently in the game’s story, but here’s what we know about Baizhu so far.
The Genshin Impact Version 3.6 Live Stream has confirmed that Baizhu — one of the game’s upcoming Dendro characters will be released with the next update. The Catalyst-wielding healer has been a bit of an outside pick, floating in and out of Genshin’s in-game files — because of his place as an NPC.
However, with his Dendro vision and long-awaited launch, the hype around his release is higher than ever before. Especially after the confirmation from HoYoverse, the pharmacist with a white snake on his shoulders will soon be available for everyone to unlock and play.
So, if you’re looking to save your Primogems for the upcoming Baizhu banner or just wish to know more about him, then our handy release hub has everything you need to know.

Is there a Baizhu release date in Genshin Impact?
No, despite HoYoverse confirming that Baizhu will be released along with the second phase of update 3.6 in Genshin Impact, they haven’t confirmed a date for it.
Nevertheless, HoYoverse has confirmed that the first phase of update 3.6 will be released on April 12, 2023. Based on the usual three-week cycle for Banners, we speculate that the second phase of update 3.6 could be released during the early days of May. However, this is merely speculation at this point and we will make sure to update this section with official news as soon as HoYoverse confirms.
Given that HoYoverse had revealed several details about the Owner of Bubu Pharmacy a few weeks ago, there was plenty of speculation surrounding the Dendro character. However, with the confirmation during the Version 3.6 Live Stream, it has now been settled that Baizhu will be released as a playable character in Genshin Impact 3.6.

Baizhu controls a Gossamer Sprite that cruises and attacks nearby opponents, dealing Dendro damage. After it performs three attacks or if there are no opponents nearby, the Sprite will return, healing all nearby party members based on Baizhu’s Max HP.
Elemental Burst: Healing Holism
Baizhu enters the Pulsing Edict state, creating a Seamless Shield. While in this state, Baizhu will generate Seamless Shield every two seconds. The Seamless Shield will unleash a Spiritvein to heal the active character(s) based on Baizhu’s Max HP and attack opponents, dealing Dendro damage under the following circumstances:
- When a character is under the protection of a Seamless Shield and a new Seamless Shield is generated.
- When the Seamless Shield’s effects expire, or when it is shattered.
Baizhu weapon type in Genshin Impact
While Baizhu’s weapon has not been confirmed as of yet, a leak has revealed that he will wield a Catalyst. Details from the 3.6 beta have uncovered that the Dendro character utilizes the Primordial Jade Regalia as his signature weapon. According to leaks from Honey Impact, the Primordial Jade Regalia has the following weapon effect:
When using an Elemental Burst or creating a shield, gain 3s of the Primordial Jade Regalia effect: The equipping character gains their corresponding Elemental DMG Bonus of 0.3% for every 1,000 Max HP they possess, up to 12%. At the same time, they will regain 4 Energy every 2.5s. This will still take effect even if the character is not on the field.
However, much like his abilities, this leak should be taken with a grain of salt and could change before his official release date.
