Kaveh is an unreleased Sumeru character.

At the time of writing HoVoverse has yet to reveal the official release date for Kaveh, however, during the official 3.6 livestream, they did confirm that Kaveh will debut during Phase 2 of the 3.6 version update alongside another new Dendro character, Baizhu.

We do know that Phase 1 of 3.6 will launch on April 12, 2023, and given the game’s typical 3-week banner cycle, we can speculate that Kevah will debut around May 3, 2023 however this is yet to be confirmed.

Who is Kaveh in Genshin Impact?

On February 24, 2023, HoYoverse revealed some official promo information about Kaveh. According to their tweet, Kaveh is a Dendro wielder who is a renowned architect from the Sumeru region. He’s known as the Light of Kshahrewar and is one of the most high-profile figures in the industry.

According to an in-game description from Nilou, Kaveh is an architect who built the “magnificent Palace of Alcazarzaray.” Tighnari also mentions Kaveh, stating that “the Palace of Alcazarzaray is his magnum opus”. He even asked Tighnari to recommend suitable ornamental flora during the initial planning.

The Dendro bow user notes that Kaveh also ended up heavily in debt after the palace was completed. As a result of this debt, Alhaitham is said to be “helping out” by letting him stay at his place, which Tighnari doesn’t know “whether [it’s] a blessing or a curse.”

Painted Dome completely utilizes all of Mehrak’s energy, creating a cubic scanned space that deals AoE Dendro DMG to all opponents within it, and grants Kaveh enhanced abilities for a specific duration of time and are only canceled once Kaveh leaves the AoE field.

  • Kaveh’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging AoE DMG are all increased, and his ATK damage is converted to Dendro DMG which cannot be overridden.
  • All Dendro cores created by party members through Bloom reactions deal additional rupture DMG.
  • Kaveh’s resistance to interruption is increased.
