Scaramouche ability leaks in Genshin Impact
Scaramouche hasn’t had his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst officially revealed yet, but that hasn’t stopped leakers from delving into the Anemo Catalyst user’s abilities. Below are early details of Scaramouche’s abilities, courtesy of Honey Impact:
Hanega: Fushi Kakka
Scaramouche concentrates the power of the winds to break free from the shackles of the earth, dealing AoE Anemo DMG before leaping into the air and entering the Windfavored state. When Windfavored is active, the Wanderer enters a persistent hovering state, with increased Normal and Charged Attack AoE and DMG.
Charged Attacks no longer consume stamina. While this state is active, The Wanderer’s movements gain the following properties:
- Persistently consumes Sky-Dweller Points to maintain this hovering state.
- When sprinting, additional Sky-Dweller Points will be consumed for The Wanderer to sprint mid-air. Holding down sprint will cause persistent Sky-Dweller point consumption to maintain speed.
- Jumping expends extra Sky-Dweller Points to increase hovering height, holding jump will cause persistent Sky-Dweller point consumption to increase hovering height.
Kyougen: Shikiraku Gobandate
Scaramouche compresses the atmosphere into a singular vacuum that grinds all troubles away, dealing multiple instances of AoE Anemo DMG. If the character is in the Windfavored state due to the skill Hanega: Fushi Kakka, the Windfavored state will end after casting.
Scaramouche story in Genshin Impact
Scaramouche was originally created by Beelzebul (Raiden Ei) in order to test if she could make puppet bodies. As the test was successful, Ei later sealed Scaramouche’s power and then released him into Inazuma.
Unfortunately, this sentient puppet fell into the hands of the Fatui who unlocked his sealed power. Being a direct creation of the Electro Archon, Scaramouche holds incredible power and quickly found himself claiming the No. 6 rank among the Fatui’s Eleven Harbingers.
Whether the Traveler will be able to eventually seal Scaramouche’s power or take him away from the Fatui’s clutches remains to be seen.
So, there you have it, that’s everything we currently know about Scaramouche ahead of his official release. In the meantime, be sure to check out our Genshin Impact page for all the latest news and updates.
